    I am running the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February 2015. We plan to stay about a week - my husband will be joining me as my cheering squad. Can you recommend fun places to eat that we should make reservations for in advance? Thx!

    Hi, Anne!

    I love to discuss Disney dining! Here are some of my favorites:

    Il Mulino New York Trattoria at Walt Disney World Swan Hotel- Traditional Italian fare perfect for that pre-race carb loading dinner. I highly suggest the Spaghetti Carbonara, it's fantastic!

    Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano- If your plans should find you visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios in the days leading up to the big race, try Mama Melrose's. The Penne alla Vodka with Chicken is a great choice. You even have the option of selecting a Fantasmic! Dining Package - allowing you VIP seating during this nighttime spectacular. 

    Boma - Flavors of Africa- This African inspired buffet has excellent food choices that offer a great selection of protein and carbohydrate dishes with a unique flare.

    Biergarten Restaurant- In my opinion, this is one of the funnest restaurants on property and makes for the perfect post-race dinner celebration. Dine on this bountiful bavarian buffet as you enjoy the lively entertainment! You can even get in on the fun!  

    Whispering Canyon Cafe- Want a post-race hoedown? You'll have a great time here as Cast Members entertain you with their banter and horse-play. Plus, you can dine on some great frontier-style grub.

    Hope this helps, Anne! Let me know if you have any additional questions. 

    Happy Dining!
