    Today, I learned of a progressive dinner based on the monorail at Disney World. Does this still exist? How can I learn more?

    Hello, Tom and welcome to planDisney!

    Tom, the Highway in the Sky Dine Around has been an elusive unchecked box on my Disney bucketlist for a few years now, so when I read your question I just had to answer! Previously this dining experience took place over the course of an evening at three different Disney Resorts Collection hotels... all connected by the monorail. When this experience was available, guests started at Disney's Contemporary Resort, continued to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort via the monorail, then made a stop at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for the main course before returning to Disney's Contemporary Resort for dessert with a fireworks view.

    Tom, if you liken this itinerary to Hercules ascending the golden staircase to Mount Olympus, I wholeheartedly agree! Now, unfortunately as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to operate in a state of phased reopening to focus on enhanced health and safety measures, this experience is no longer available. While there is no telling when or IF the Highway in the Sky Dine Around will make a triumphant return, I will be wishing on a star for you (and me) that it comes back.

    While you were likely hoping for different news, I encourage you to keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as announcements (including those about the reopening of restaurants and experiences) will pop up there first.

    Tom, whenever you next choose to visit the Walt Disney World Resort I hope you're able to find a variety of dishes that Chef Remy would say are très magnifique! If you have any additional questions, come on back to your new friends hEAR at planDisney where we love to talk about dining almost as we love eating!
