    Our family is considering a visit to Disney World in late September 2020, and are aware of the new safety protocols. However, can you tell me which, if any, restaurant menus have been modified (such as no buffets, limited menu items, etc)? Thanks!

    Hi, Miranda!  Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    I'm so glad to hEAR that you're planning to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth later this month!  During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, things may look a bit different from what we're used to, but I know that your vacation will still be practically perfect in every way.  Be sure to take a look at this "Know Before You Go" page to find all of the information you'll need as you prepare to return to a world of magic.

    During these unprecedented times, the health and safety of Walt Disney World Resort Guests and Cast Members is of the utmost importance.  Due to enhanced safety practices, certain dining experiences may currently be unavailable or modified.  This Dining Updates page will be a great resource for you as you plan your meals and snacks for your upcoming trip.  If you scroll through this page, you will find an up-to-date list of which dining locations are currently available in both the theme parks and the resort hotels.

    At this time, the majority of restaurants are operating with more limited menus than what we are used to.  If you click to view a specific dining location's page, you can then click on "View Menu" to see that restaurant's current offerings.  Buffet meals are not being offered at this time, however certain restaurants such as Chef Mickey's are serving family-style feasts rather than their traditional buffets.  It is also worth mentioning that at this time, characters are not appearing at Chef Mickey's.  Currently, a modified version of character dining is taking place at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and Garden Grill.  Also, Minnie's Seasonal Dining is expected to return to Hollywood & Vine later this month.

    Although your dining experiences may be slightly different during this vacation, I have no doubt that you will cook up some delicious memories!  Please stop by and visit us again if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
