My Christmas Disney vacation may still be 6 months away, but luckily, I am almost to the 180 day mark – which means I can make my ADR’s! For those of you who don’t know what that means, in a nutshell – Disney allows you to make dining reservations (similar to a call ahead service) 180 days before your trip for all sit down restaurants. So, I have been busy figuring out where we should eat and when and making my itinerary based on our restaurant choices (does that seem nuts? Maybe it is a little…but oh well!)
So Monday, June 25 is the day – I will be up early and ready to log onto the Disney Dining website, armed with my list….mmm the possibilities are sounding more and more delicious by the minute!
Here are our top picks – with pics!
Nothing says “Welcome to The Magic Kingdom” like a delicious breakfast complete with Winnie The Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace
‘Ohana will be a new restaurant for us – but we hear the dinner is delicious – grilled meats, amazing bread and more – plus some super mouth-watering bread pudding to complete the meal!
Boma is now a “must do” for our family – it offers unique African cuisine in a buffet setting for dinner, and the restaurant is located in the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge – a great place to do some giraffe-watching!
A traditional turkey dinner is in order for Christmas Eve – so we decided that the Liberty Tree Tavern would be perfect – they serve turkey and all the trimmings up family style, and the setting allows you to soak up some American History too (check out the artifacts on the walls and the décor!)
Christmas Morning breakfast with the Mad Hatter himself? Yes please! Over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort you will find 1900 Park Fare – a character buffet serving up all the breakfast classics
Another restaurant on our “Must Do” list is Raglan Road Irish Pub – where the beer list is long, and the Irish dancing is the perfect entertainment to accompany the amazing Irish dishes on the menu
I can’t WAIT to get my mouth on some wood oven pizza at Via Napoli in the Italy Pavillion at Epcot’s World Showcase. Pair it with some Italian vino and you are good to go!
Getting to make the ADR’s 180 days in advance is just another way for me to get to feel more connected to my WDW experience, and it makes me even more excited to head off to the Place Where Dreams Come True! Now if only the next 180 days would fly by….
