    I need 3 recommendations for dinner before 8pm Cirque du Soliel show, on a Wednesday night. Preferably in Disney Springs, but other recommendations are welcome. Thanks!


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Disney Springs is a wonderful place to spend a night at Walt Disney World, and capping it off with a performance from Drawn to Life by Cirque du Soleil will make for a memorable evening! 

    But where to dine first? Well, you are spoiled by an overabundance of options. You want to be sure not to get caught at one that could make you run late for the show. Regardless, I would strongly recommend that you dine at Disney Springs so that your evening is not interrupted by travel from one place to another. Here are some of my top suggestions. 

    Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' - They take American classics and elevate them while letting you enjoy a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. 

    The BOATHOUSE - A bit more expensive than most, but this is where you want to go for seafood and an elevated, coastal experience. 

    Paradiso 37 - This is your best choice for a dining experience that can be both familiar and exotic. Still, most importantly if you are concerned about time, it is the best choice for a restaurant that won't run long as you approach showtime. 

    Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant - A longtime favorite for many Disney fans, Raglan Road offers both great Irish cuisine, as well as fun, family-friendly entertainment. The only downside is that you may not want to peel away from their show to get to your next one!

    Wine Bar George - Exceptional cuisine is the rule of the day, and as the name might imply they back it with an impressive wine list. 

    All of these options are good ones, and to be sure there are others. Review the menus, and pick accordingly. But regardless of the one you choose, be sure to book a table for at least an hour and a half before showtime, so you are not rushed!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
