    Hi having trouble deciding between Bongos and The Edison. Which would you choose and why? Thank you

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    When it comes to planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, my favorite check-list to plan out is my Disney Dining plans. With so many amazing, and oh so delicious options at the theme parks, resort hotels, and Disney Springs, you can satisfy any palate; from the pickiest to the most sophisticated. Word to the wise, don’t plan your dining on an empty stomach. That can guarantee to give you a rumbly in your tumbly!

    Lisa, being born and raised in Puerto Rico, Bongos Cuban Cafe has a special place in my heart. The Caribbean-inspired cuisine and loud, fun atmosphere reminds me of home and so it’s a personal favorite. I had the opportunity to visit the Edison recently and really enjoyed it too! I loved the "steampunk" theming, with the elaborate costumes on the cast members, exciting and unique plates, and an all-around “cool” vibe! It was really fun!

    Each Disney restaurant offers a unique experience so choosing one over the other is going to be such a personal preference. I would browse the menus, see what you think your crew would prefer, then consider the vibe. Bongos Cuban Cafe feels like you just showed up to a Latin party and you’re guaranteed a loud and fun time! While The Edison has a more sophisticated feel. One thing is for sure, either one you choose will delight you with a very tasty meal and a super fun experience. 

    Be sure to lock in your reservations early since availability is limited. You can book up to 180-days in advance.

    Thanks again for stopping by! Wishing you a magical, and tasty, upcoming visit,
