    Hey there, Jim! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! There’s nothing better than knowing all of your plans are confirmed, including all of your dining reservations.

    Depending upon when your vacation is, keep in mind that during the current reopening period many dining experiences may be modified or unavailable in order to promote cleanliness and physical distancing so you’ll want to keep a close eye on what’s open now vs. what’s coming soon.

    While I’ve heard of the great dining restaurants at Shades of Green I’ve not personally had the opportunity to visit these. From Garden Gallery, Mangino’s to Evergreen’s I’m sure you’ll have an opportunity to visit each of these locations.

    In terms of a few additional places to eat just a short distance away from Shades of Green, yes, I absolutely recommend Character Dining. Back in December, I had the opportunity to eat at Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and it was a fantastic experience with Mickey and the gang. I also have to recommend Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria at EPCOT as it’s hands down, my favorite restaurant. And if you’re looking for something a little more laidback with a great atmosphere, check out the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of the dining options at Walt Disney World Resort so enjoy the selection process and stay tuned to what’s open now vs. what’s coming soon.

    If you have any other questions please let us know. Otherwise, be sure to tell Mickey I said hello!
