    Could you provide an updated list of restaurants with outdoor dining (parks, Disney Springs, resorts, Boardwalk area, etc.)? Is there a way to request outdoor seating when you make your reservation? We will be at WDW late Jan/early Feb 2022.

    Hi there Rebekah, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    Thanks for stopping by to chat about your upcoming winter getaway. There's nothing better than escaping to sunny Florida when Elsa is making things chilly up north. My family and I love to take advantage of dining al fresco while we're enjoying Olaf-approved weather. I'm happy to share a list of table-service restaurants currently offering outdoor seating, but keep in mind this could change by the time you travel, and there is no way to guarantee a specific table when making a reservation; let the Cast Member know your wishes at check-in, and they'll do what they can to meet your needs. 

    In the hotels of the Disney Resorts Collection, the following lounges and restaurants feature open-air or outdoor seating.
    Enchanted Rose at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
    Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort 
    Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney's Wilderness Lodge 
    Big River Grille & Brewing Works at Disney's BoardWalk
    Olivia's Cafe at Disney's Old Key West Resort
    Sebastian's Bistro at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
    Three Bridges Bar & Grill at Villa del Lago at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

    In the theme parks, check out these locations that have a limited number of outdoor tables.
    Tony's Town Square Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park
    Rose & Crown Pub in EPCOT
    Spice Road Table in EPCOT
    Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in EPCOT
    Nomad Lounge in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    BaseLine Taphouse at Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Finally, in Disney Springs, you'll find al fresco dining at these establishments.
    The BOATHOUSE®
    Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'
    STK
    Wine Bar George
    Paddlefish

    I hope this is helpful, Rebekah! My family and I have enjoyed finding new places to dine outdoors on our recent Walt Disney World visits. I didn't include quick-service dining on my list, since almost all of these locations have outdoor tables, and if not, it's fairly easy to carry counter-service food to another spot. Happy holidays, and best wishes for a magical winter getaway.
