Where to Eat at Walt Disney World – EPCOT

Disney World

There are so many restaurants at Walt Disney World, that I thought I would divide the posts for each of the theme parks. Today we are focusing on EPCOT!! Eating at the World Showcase in EPCOT is definitely a highlight! They offer food from around the world. Each Country has a Table Service restaurant, as well as a quick serve option! Some of our favourite Table Service restaurants are Le Cellier in Canada;

Les Chef de France - Ribs

Chef’s de France in France;

WDW March 2013

Teppan Edo in Japan;

Disney World 2012

and Via Napoli in Italy.

Biergarten Restaurant

The Biergarten in Germany has an Oompah Band to entertain you!! They serve a Buffet with all of your favourite German foods!

Gemma and Jasmine

And, as I mentioned previously, you can visit the Princesses at Akershus in Norway!

Disney World 2012

I also love the Fish and Chips from England;

French Bakery

everything from the Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in France

Mexico

and La Catina de San Angel in Mexico.

Key Lime Mousse at Coral Reef

In Future World, Coral Reef features the huge Aquarium from the Under the Seas Pavilion! It is fun to watch the fish while you eat.

Disney World 2012

Or have a seasonal meal at the Garden Grill and visit with Mickey, Pluto and Chip and Dale!

The great thing about Dining in EPCOT is that you are guaranteed to find something for everyone!!

Ep. 979 – WRMK Embossing Folders

Scrap Time - Ep. 979 - WRMK Embossing Foldes

Today I am showing you some of the new designs of the WRMK Embossing Folders! I have decided to use the Folders with my Gelli Printed papers. I took one of my papers that I previously printed using my Gelli Plate and Embossed it. I love these folders because they are 6″x6″. As well, you get 2 folders in every package! After I embossed my paper I used the Archival Inks to go over the embossing to make it pop! This is a great way to add another layer of texture to your papers!

I then took the paper and cut a variety of circles using the WRMK Nesting Circle dies! I glued them onto a card – these would make great notecards to put together in a set and use as a gift!

What to Eat at Walt Disney World – Dining Plan and Character Meals

Le Cellier

So you have picked when you are going to Walt Disney World and where you are staying! Now it’s time to get down to business! Where are you going to eat!!!

Mickey Waffle

Disney offers a few Dining Plans. The most popular plan offers a refillable cup for the resort, a Quick-Service meal, a Table-Service meal and a snack for each day of your stay. You still have to pay tax and tip. Sometimes, Disney offers FREE dining, depending on when you are traveling and where you are staying! This is an amazing deal to look out for when booking your vacation.

Be Our Guest

However, we personally find that the Dining Plan doesn’t save us any money. We don’t normally order dessert with every meal, and Gemma and I now share a meal at many restaurants. We purchase a Tables in Wonderland card that gives us 20% off most of our Table Service meals. No matter how you are paying, you can book your Disney Dining 180 days before your vacation!! I highly recommend this, especially if you are looking for some coveted restaurants, like Be Our Guest.

WDW March 2013

There are so many restaurants to choose from!! In this post I am going to give you a bit of an over view! First off, there are many Character meals!! These are great because while you are enjoying your meal, the characters will come up to your table and take pictures and sign autographs! No waiting in lines in the parks!

WDW March 2013

We love Mickey and the Gang and they can be found at many restaurants around WDW! You can check out Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary;

Disney World 2012

the Garden Grill at EPCOT;

WDW March 2013

Cape May Cafe at the Yacht Club;

Tusker House

Tusker House at Animal Kingdom and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at Fort Wilderness! I love that the characters have themed outfits for each restaurant!

WDW March 2013

Now the Princesses are very popular as well! One of the coveted spots to visit them is Cinderella’s Royal Table, in Cinderella’s Castle.

Gemma and Mulan

You can also find them at Akershus Royal Banquet at Norway in the World Showcase.

Drisilla and Gemma

Plus, Cinderella, her Prince and her Step Sisters are at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian.

Pooh

But there are even more character meals! Winnie-the-Pooh and Friends are at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. Lilo and Stitch can be found at ‘Ohana.

Disney World

Alice, the Mad Hatter and Mary Poppins can be found at 1900 Park Fare for breakfast! And Disney Jr. Characters can be found at Hollywood and Vine at Hollywood Studios.

WDW March 2013

Plus, you can meet the Beast at Be Our Guest!

Spirit of Aloha

Walt Disney World also offers 2 Dinner Shows: The Disney’s Spirit of Aloha at the Polynesian Resort

Disney World 2012

and the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review at Fort Wilderness!

Even as Gemma gets older, we still love to do the Character Dining! Every visit we go to Chef Mickey’s! And we are planning on going back to Akershus in March!

Where to Stay at Walt Disney World

Welcome to Disney

I am a huge believer in staying on property. Every trip I planned to Disney involved staying on property. I am not familiar with the off-property hotels. There are 3 levels of resorts: Value, Moderate and Deluxe, plus the Fort Wilderness Campgrounds. For Value Resorts there are: All-Star Music, All-Star Sports, All-Star Movies, Pop Century and Art Of Animation. I have not stayed at any of these resorts. But they offer rooms starting at $90/night, which is an amazing deal!

Hanging in the Pool

Next you have the Moderate Resorts: Caribbean Beach, Port Orleans – Riverside, Port Orleans – French Quarter, Coronado Springs and the Cabins at Fort Wilderness. These start at $170/night. The first time we went we stayed at Caribbean Beach, and the next 2 trips we stayed at Port Orleans – French Quarter.

Caribbean Beach is HUGE! There is an internal bus that takes 30 minutes to go around the whole resort! Luckily, we stayed in the Martinique section. It was a 5 minute walk to the pool and food court. We were also the first ones off the bus from the Parks, and could walk over to another bus stop, which was the last stop to be picked up before heading out. Otherwise you could spend a long time on the buses! It is centrally located so it didn’t take too long to get to any of the parks.

Port Orleans - French Quarter

So, for our next trip we chose Port Orleans – French Quarter because it is small! One bus stop! We loved it there. You could easily walk to the food court, pool and the bus no matter where you were staying. They also have a boat to take you to Downtown Disney!! We enjoy the boat ride so much, that every trip since involves a visit to the French Quarter and the boat ride to Downtown Disney. As well, you can get made-to-order Beignets that are delicious!!

Bay Lake Tower

After our 3rd visit we became Disney Vacation Club members (more on that in a future post). It is basically a Disney time share. We have purchased points to use each year for Disney Vacations. The points can be used for the DVC Villas at the Deluxe Resorts!

Disney World 2012

For our first trip being a DVC member we had extra points and were able to stay at Bay Lake Tower in a 1 bedroom! Now that is luxury! The room was amazing with a separate bedroom, 2 bathrooms, laundry, full kitchen and seating and a living room with a pull out couch and chair!

However, now we want to spend more time, so we stay in the Deluxe Studios. They have a queen size bed, with a pull-out couch; a kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and sink; and one bathroom.

WDW March 2013

The great thing about Bay Lake Tower is it’s proximity to the Magic Kingdom! I love being able to walk from the hotel to the Magic Kingdom! As well, you can take the Monorail to the other Magic Kingdom resorts and to EPCOT!

WDW March 2013

We have stayed there a few times, twice in a Lake View Room. The first time we looked over Bay Lake, and the second time we had a view of the Magic Kingdom! Each night we could watch the Fireworks from our room. You can also go up to the Top of the World Lounge and watch the Fireworks with the music piped in!

Beach Club

Last March Gemma and I stayed at the Beach Club Villas! We loved this resort so much, we are staying there again in March!

Beach Club

It has the most amazing pool on property! It goes on forever! As well, it is a 5 minute walk to EPCOT and a 20 minute walk to Hollywood Studios. You can also take a boat to the Studios.

Boardwalk

The Beach Club Villas is also right beside the Boardwalk, so you can walk over there and take in all of their night time entertainment!

I have future reservations at the Boardwalk, Grand Floridian and Animal Kingdom Lodge and I will report on them once we return from our trips!

Basically all of the Disney Property Resorts have great things about them! Currently, I would recommend the following: Value Resort – Art of Animation; Moderate – Port Orleans French Quarter; Deluxe – you can’t go wrong with any of them!! I can never decide and that is why I am staying at 3 resorts on my next 2 trips!!

What is your favourite Disney Resort?
