    Have any new restaurants opened at Disney World in the past year?

    Hi Suzann!

    While my family has our favorite restaurants we like to frequent in Walt Disney World Resort, we're always excited to try something new. Luckily, Disney is always surprising us with new dining experiences!

    Magic Kingdom Park: While not "brand new", if you haven't yet tried Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in Adventureland, your tastebuds are missing out! Don't miss the Kungaloosh!, an African-inspired chocolate cake with caramelized bananas and cashew-caramel ice cream.

    Animal Kingdom Park: The newest signature restaurant at WDW is Tiffin's. With a waterfront patio and travel-themed dining rooms, guests can dine on dishes inspired by South America, Asia, and Africa. I can't wait to try the Lobster-Popcorn Thai Curry Soup when I visit next month! Tiffin's next-door neighbor is the Nomad Lounge, where you can savor small bites and hand-crafted cocktails.

    Disney Springs: This area has really been booming this year, with lots of new restaurants opening their doors. STK, Blaze Fast-Fired Pizza, Frontera Cocina and Morimoto Asia have all been getting rave reviews, as well as our favorite: Chef Art Smith's Homecoming. Favorites on the Homecoming menu: Church Lady Deviled Eggs and Fried Chicken and Doughnuts. Chef Art Smith has taken comfort food to a whole new level!

    Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for information about these new dining locations coming to Disney Springs in 2017:
