If you are a Walt Disney World Resort HOTEL GUEST:
- Participate in the test by pre-ordering your meal online by visiting the website mentioned above and coming to the restaurant at the time you selected. This is the preferred choice, and works like a reservation;
- Take a ticket with a return time (we suggest coming to the restaurant very early, as there is a very limited availability of standby tickets), then come back and order your meal at the restaurant.
- Take a ticket with a return time (again, we suggest coming to the restaurant very early, as there is a very limited availability of standby tickets), then come back and order your meal at the restaurant.
Disney has created quite a "mess" if you will. Used to be a nice array of interesting, or fun, restaurants, with varied menus often closely linked to their respective lands or zones. Now we have "must do" experiences, where the food is largely the same, and way overpriced. But they've sold "immersion" and "experience" to such a high degree they've got the masses falling over themselves to book reservations months in advance to get into places like BOG to have a grilled cheese sandwich.
Stopping by the Crystal Palace, or Tony's (years ago when it wasn't so Chef Boy'rdee) for bite to eat was just a fun, nice thing to do. Now we seldom bother with any park food beyond snacks, a quick bowl of soup if the line is short, a churo etc. Same for the other parks, I'm not picking on MK in particular. (Its easy to snack around Epcot, why bother to wait for months or hours to do a sit down -folks, its not that great).
Anyway, Disney has quite a mess on its hands. Making lots of money, the places are packed, but increasingly people are not happy. They want the people to be happy, but the people keep paying to be miserable. Its not all Disney's fault - but they've brainwashed so many with mythical concepts of "immersion" and "experience" people are caught, and so is Disney.
I agree with the previous poster. I'm unaware of any true quality dining at Magic Kingdom. If you've had the opportunity to visit Disneyland, you'll know that each food location could provide quality food, not just burgers and fries. Also, why can't you get bacon and eggs for breakfast in MK? You can only get a real breakfast if you go to Royal Table or Crystal Palace!
