Happy Holidays! We’ve been eating SO many holiday snacks at Disney World!
But we’ve also been at every recent restaurant reopening and kept an eye on menu updates! So here’s what’s happened with Disney restaurants this past week!
Drum roll pleeeeeease: The Crystal Palace has officially reopened in the Magic Kingdom!
This fan-favorite table-service (read: sit-down) restaurant in Disney World used to be a huge draw for Disney fans. Winnie the Pooh and Friends greeted guests, and diners indulged in an all-you-can-eat buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
But as with so many reopened restaurants at Disney World, the dining experience at Crystal Palace has changed quite a bit. Buffet? GONE. Characters? NOPE. So with all the changes, is visiting the Crystal Palace still worth it? Here’s what we think!
Now, there will be some pretty big changes when this table service restaurant reopens to guests on December 13th that you’ll definitely want to be aware of if you’re planning on dining at The Crystal Palace in the near future. [Read more…]
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the news for you this week. Today we have the details on the latest in the Disney theme parks and MORE!
See all of our coverage on Disney park reopenings HERE. We still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
Earlier today, Disney announced that 3 restaurants will soon be reopening in Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
One of the spots that will be welcoming guests again soon is The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. Although the characters will be “taking a break” from greeting guests at this restaurant, it will still be open soon for guests to enjoy and will be serving meals family-style, a change from its previous buffet-style meal. But the REALLY exciting news is that we JUST got a look at the new family-style lunch & dinner menu and we’re excited to share it all with you!
Mickey is a pretty busy mouse!
After all, he’s got lots to do! Mickey’s days are busy with cavalcades, motorcades, and of course hanging with Minnie and his friends. Today though, it looks like the Mouse had a little something extra on his schedule. We saw Mickey walking around a CLOSED Magic Kingdom restaurant with a filming crew!
Greetings from the Hundred Acre Woods, friends!
And no, we don’t mean the United Kingdom pavilion in Epcot — though how cute are the Winnie the Pooh and Rabbit Flower and Garden topiaries!? (Psst – you can go on a Virtual Tour of the Flower and Garden Festival with us here!)
What we DO mean is the Crystal Palace! If you’re unfamiliar, the Crystal Palace is a character dining restaurant in Magic Kingdom where you can dine with Winnie the Pooh and his friends during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a classic character dining experience, and one that Winnie the Pooh fans will love! But is the high price of the meal ($55/ adult at lunch or dinner) worth it? Read on to find out — plus what you can expect on the buffet!
