    I am staying at Port Orleans Riverside when it reopens in October. Do you know if any of the food outlets will be available when the resort reopens? Or will we need to plan all of our meals off site?

    Hi Alfredo!

    When you stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside, the peaceful setting and lush landscaping makes it hard to believe you are only a few quick miles from the world's most popular theme park. The Ol' Man Island pool with its waterfalls and curved slide makes for a fantastic afternoon break.

    Typically when the Walt Disney World Resorts reopen, the dinning options do as well. The restaurants at Riverside are not currently scheduled for refurbishment, so you should be able to chow down in the food court. Don't plan to stroll over to the Disney's Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter for beignets, however. This resort does not open until late October.

    If you are looking for food in spots other than your resort, try the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. You can dine on everything from Kenyan specialties to candy topped doughnuts to bao buns.

    Enjoy all the Mickey shaped food!
