    What restaurants will be serving dinner on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day

    Hi Ann! Planning a Christmas holiday at Walt Disney World is very special but because of the crowds one must indeed plan ahead and get reservations for as much as possible.

    All of the Disney Restaurants that are normally open for dinner will definitely be open for Christmas and Christmas Day. They might change up their menu to offer something a bit more traditional but they will all be offering full service. You can check out your favorite spot to see what the normal hours are and see if they normally are open for dinner.

    Most of the table service restaurants are all open in the evening hours for dinner. Some will not be open for breakfast or lunch but dinner is the one time it is not hard to find a place to eat. Decide if you would like to eat inside a park on those days or choose something a bit more quiet and dine in a resort location. If you are traveling with children would it be more special to book a character meal? There are many things to consider and your choices are abundant. The website will show the hours for dinner as well as sample menus. It will also indicate if they are buffet meals or table service or quick service.

    Don't wait too long before booking a holiday meal as they will go quickly. As soon as your 180 day reservation window opens get something in your plans and reserved.
