    Please advise what table seating restaurants in MK, AK, and epcot have outdoor seating? How can I request outdoor seating when making reservations- I do not see any notations to do so. Thanks!

    Hello Mariah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you’ll be visiting during a cooler part of the year, or eating in the evening, outdoor dining can be a lovely way to enjoy your meal. At this time, there is not a way to specifically request an outdoor table when making your reservations. I highly recommend making an Advance Dining Reservation for your preferred time and restaurant as soon as you are able, and then stopping by the restaurant on the day of your reservation to request an outdoor table. Even with a request, a table outside cannot be guaranteed, but it is always a good idea to ask, and hope some pixie dust comes your way!

    If dining al fresco makes your day more magical, there are a few table service options in each park:

    Magic Kingdom
    * Tony’s Town Square Restaurant

    * Spice Road Table
    * Rose & Crown Dining Room

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    * The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge - this outdoor patio serves small plates, and is walk-up only. No reservations needed. This is a personal favorite and dining here is one of my best expert tips!

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park
    * Tiffins Restaurant

    There are also quite a few quick-service locations that offer outdoor seating in each park, though these can be a bit more crowded. We love Casey’s Corner for a late-night snack at the Magic Kingdom, or La Cantina de San Angel at Epcot. My current favorite quick-service location in all of Walt Disney World  is Satu'li Canteen in Pandora, and they also offer a covered outdoor seating area. Don't miss the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse there, it is amazing! I hope this helps as you plan your upcoming visit, Mariah. Please let us know if you have any additional questions we can help you with!
