    I am needing some suggestions for places to eat at the resort properties around Disney that honor the table service plan? I’m not interested in character or buffet style food. Would like to see the other resorts. Thanks

    Hi, Diana!

    Ooooh...this is a fun question! Thanks so much for sending it!

    Most of the restaurants in the Walt Disney World Resort will participate in the Disney Dining Plan, even if they haven't yet finalized the details and, therefore, haven't been added to the Dining Plan PDF yet. Not to worry!

    As such, some of my favorite ONE Table-Service restaurants (non-character, non-buffet) are the following: (Magic Kingdom area) Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Resort (breakfast=Tonga Toast); The Wave at Disney's Contemporary Resort; (Epcot area) Captain's Grille; Kouzinna by Cat Cora; Olivia's Cafe at Disney's Old Key West Resort; Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge-Kidani Village. Don't forget to check out the FABULOUS restaurants at Downtown Disney, too. There are TEN Table-Service restaurants there which currently participate in the Dining Plan, all of which I've visited and fallen in love with a dish or two...or two dozen! No park passes needed to enjoy these wonderful venues, either.

    TWO Table-Service favorites include the following: Flying Fish Cafe at Disney's BoardWalk Resort; Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts and California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    There are so many fabulous restaurants on the Dining Plan that aren't in a park, Diana. I'd be happy to help guide you the right ones just for you. YUM!
