It is the only place at Disney World where you can meet the Evil Queen so is a must-visit for fans of Disney Villains! You also get to see Snow White, Dopey and Grumpy! This dining experience is temporarily suspended but I cannot wait for it to reopen as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my favourite Disney films!
Sebastian's Bistro at Caribbean Beach Resort based on The Little Mermaid.

This fan favourite restaurant is filled with Polynesian decor and flare. At breakfast Lilo and Stitch make an appearance!

This restaurant is one of the hardest to get dining reservations at Disney World so be sure to book right at the 60-day mark once bookings reopen!

AbracadaBar at Disney's BoardWalk is themed to be set in the golden age of magicians and illusionists. This bar and lounge was a local haunt for these curious folk until one day this bar just disappeared! Now it has returned and is a sophisticated and mysterious place which is perfect to visit for cocktails in the evening.
