    How are bars and bar tops being seated?

    Hi Ryan,

    Cheers! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with a question. Let's celebrate your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I had to reach out to our other panelists to get some sparkly perspective with this one!

    Given the health and safety measures in place, it may take longer to dine or grab a drink. And, each bar location may have slightly different procedures in place given their seating configuration. My first recommendation if you plan to do food and drinks would be to make an advanced dining reservation when you can and request to sit at the bar if that is an option. You can also try the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability option in the My Disney Experience Mobile App. With other locations, like pool-side bars, you may be able to stand in a line to receive service. 

    On our last visit, we noticed different seating arrangements across dining locations. One of my fellow panelists also said that at one bar, the seating at the main bar was fairly distanced while at the bar in the back of the restaurant, every bar stool was taken. Remember that not all bars are open at this time, so check the dining updates to see which food and beverage locations at resort hotels might be open.

    Remember also that you can use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. I just checked availability and could place an order from Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts and Barbecue which has a few beer and wine options. You will have to check a box to confirm that you are at least 21 years-old when placing the order and you will have to verify with identification when you pick up your order. When mobile ordering, just remember to check the pick-up time. On one visit, our pick-up time was going to be two hours from when I was placing the order. Today, it was going to be just 30 minutes from the time I started placing the order.

    Ryan, looking at some of your beverage options brought some happiness to my day! Enjoy a bubbly, brewing adventure. May the stories you share bring light to your visit. And may your visit be as safe as it is magical!

    Magic and memories,
