    What are the newest and best restaurants to book for sept 2018 for sit down dining in the parks? Haven’t been there since 2015. I loved be our guest and the luau at Polynesian last time.

    Welcome, Ron!

    I simply adore questions about dining at Walt Disney World Resort. Here are my suggestions for new table service restaurants in the Disney theme parks:

    In Magic Kingdom Park, you have to try the latest hidden gem, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen. So many people visiting Adventureland walk right past this new restaurant without even seeing it. That's a shame because this is such a cool, imaginative dining establishment. Definitely try the Schweitzer Slush.

    In Disney's Animal Kingdom, Tiffins is the hot new table service restaurant. It is located right at the entrance to Pandora - The World of Avatar . While I know you asked about table service restaurants, I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you about Satu'li Canteen, the new quick service restaurant in Pandora. The options at this new eatery are mind-blowing!

    For Epcot, have you had the chance to dine at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in the Italy Pavilion? Their flatbreads and desserts are definitely worth exploring. Also, since you'll be visiting during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, be on the lookout for new kiosks throughout World Showcase.

    On the day you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, consider starting your day with the new Bon Voyage Breakfast at nearby Trattoria al Forno.

    Bon appétit,
