    Hi! I have been to Disney numerous times, but each time I want to try something new. Going for 8 days, 7 nights. Could you please give me your "must try's" for dining? I am able to book dining on Feb. 23rd! And I will be up at midnight to do it!

    Hi Erica,

    First, as far as "being up at midnight," I have to tell you that the online reservation system doesn't turn over to accept the next day's reservations until about 6:00 a.m. EST. You can get some sleep so you'll be well rested to make those reservations!

    I love your plan to try something new at each Disney visit. That's exactly my strategy too. Here are some of my favorite restaurants that are more "off the beaten path."

    - Raglan Road at Downtown Disney. Truly yummy food, and they have step dancers and an Irish band in the evening.
    - Hoop Dee Doo Revue at Fort Wilderness. A hootin' hollerin' dinner show with great chicken and ribs.
    - The Wave at the Contemporary. Specializing in sustainable eats.
    - Victoria & Alberts. Pricey, but worth every penny.
    - AMC Dine-In at Downtown Disney. Eat a real dinner while you watch a first run film.
    - Restaurant Marrakesh at the Morocco pavilion at Epcot. Belly dancers and cous cous.
    - Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge. My favorite signature dining experience.
    - Tusker House at the Animal Kingdom. The character meal with the most interesting food.
    - Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can watch the zebra roam while you eat.

    Let me know if you need more information about any of these choices. We're happy to help.
