Disney Eats and Tips For Booking Advanced Dining Reservations!

From Walt Disney World to Disneyland and the infamous Disney Cruise Line, enjoying all the tasty offerings Disney has to offer is a must.

It’s definitely hard to pick a favorite Disney snack, but we tried. We agreed that the Dole Whip Float is a must- each trip, beginning, and end. Also, Jana shared her theory on why the churros at Disneyland are superior to the ones at Disney World.

Walt Disney World Dining Tips

There are a ton of options when it comes to dining at Walt Disney World. Epcot alone has some of the best restaurants in both parks, with something for everyone. For example those nachos at La Cantina de San Angel, yum.

Quick question: When you go to the World Showcase, do you go left to Mexico like us? Or do you turn right and head to Canada? And if you do go right, why? Seriously, these two Disney geeks need to know.

Some of our other top picks are Tusker House, Sanaa, Tiffins, Nomad Lounge, Be Our Guest, and Woody’s Lunchbox.

Geek Tip: If you are trying to get reservations for any restaurant at Disney World, booking in advance is key! If you’re staying on property, reservations up at 180 days from the start of your vacation beginning at 6am EST online or 7am EST via the phone.

Disneyland Dining Tips

We both love our character dining. Goofy’s Kitchen, at the Disneyland Hotel, was one of Ashley’s favorites. While both Geeks loved on Bengal BBQ, Cafe Orleans, Carnation Cafe, and Lamplight Lounge.

Did you know? WDW has beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter, but Disneyland offers beignets at Cafe Orleans and at the Mint Julep Bar inside Disneyland. We need you to start offering them in the park, too, WDW!

Geek Tip: Booking advanced dining reservations at Disneyland is different from Disney World. Instead of 180 days in advance, you can book beginning 60 days out from your vacation. However you cannot book for your entire stay, it’s one reservation a day as each 60-day mark is hit. However, it’s not as competitive as Disney World, so you’re likely to get your first choices when you want them.

Oga’s Cantina at Disneyland only offers reservations 14 days in advance.
