    Hello! Is it possible to get a to-go box for leftovers at table service dining experiences (including All-You-Care-To-Enjoy meals). I’ll be undergoing Roux-En-Y surgery prior to my trip and won’t be able to eat much in one sitting. Thanks in advance!

    Hey there, hi there, Tasha! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! 

    Well, it sounds as if the magic is calling you, Tasha, and I'm so happy to hear that you're answering the call! With the festive fall decorations, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival in full swing, the fall is one of my very favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort, and I couldn't be more excited for you. Speaking of food and wine, let's get to your question!

    I think you will be happy to hear that you can absolutely get to-go boxes for your leftovers from the table service restaurants that are à la carte. In fact, I do it all the time! (There is no way I'm leaving behind any leftover Carciofi Pizza from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. Mmmm.) However, to-go boxes are not typically available at any buffet or all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants. But Hakuna Matata, Tasha! It means "no worries!" 

    Any Walt Disney World Guest with any special dietary requests can request to speak to a chef or a special diets-trained Cast Member at most table service restaurants. When you arrive at the restaurant, you can simply ask, and a Cast Member will be more than happy to discuss your needs and requests. You can also add your dietary request when you make your Advance Dining Reservation on the My Disney Experience website or app. Just look for the prompt!

    If you have to adhere to a medically restrictive diet, I recommend contacting to submit a Special Dietary Request Form to the Special Diets Team in advance. They are the best around and will be more than happy to help. Happy dining!

    I hope this was helpful, Tasha, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable fall vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
