    Jennifer from VA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I am seeking clarification as to whether guests staying at a WDW resort can visit restaurants at the other WDW resorts. Customer service told me that guests who are not staying at the specific resort are not welcome in non-reservation restaurants or shops.

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer. I'm delighted you brought your question here today, as it gives me an excellent excuse to talk about two of my favourite things, food, and Walt Disney World! 

    We have been able to enjoy many delectable delights at Walt Disney World Resort hotels. I know that, when driving, we have had to show our driving reservation in My Disney Experience or provide our name to the friendly Cast Members at the gate, who then confirmed our booking to access the Resort and parking. Advanced Dining Reservations open up 60 days ahead of your arrival date.

    Please let me recommend some of our best dining experiences at Disney Resort hotels. Breakfast at Boma - Flavors of Africa in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is the best start to the day. Along with all the usual breakfast buffet options you would expect there is so much more, with meats and other breakfast dishes with unique flavors that help make it a memorable morning. Don't forget the jungle juice too.
    Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago offers a relaxing ambiance with spectacular dining options. We usually ask for the seating overlooking the lake and have always been impressed by the House-made Guacamole and their Spanish Margaritas.

    Did you know that character dining experiences are also available in Disney Resort hotels? Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney's Wilderness Lodge offers a royal feast for all the family with visits from Snow White, Dopey, and Grumpy. Watch out for that poison apple at dessert time, and that prickly Queen! All the photo opportunities happen here.  

    Jennifer, I hope this information helps you to have the most deliciously enchanting time at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Please pop back here with any further questions, Louise.
