Hollywood and Vine

Check out Hollywood and Vine located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! It’s a fun character buffet that changes themes to match the seasons!

The food is good and VERY kid-friendly. Plus, the characters interact well with everyone…young and older alike!

A park ticket is required to eat a Hollywood and Vine because it is located inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Boma-Flavors of Africa

Located inside Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boma-Flavors of Africa is a fun, African themed restaurant that offers a unique variety of food for everyone, even your picky eaters!

No park ticket is required because Boma is located inside a resort hotel (Animal Kingdom Lodge) and not a theme park!

The restaurant is beautifully decorated.

We were lucky enough to be the chosen family when we had dinner there the last time and they even had a certificate for our family to commerate the experience!

Boma also has a HUGE variety for those who want to try new and exotic options! There were several stew options since that is a very common meal in the Africian culture.

1900 Park Fare

1900 Park Fare is located inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The restaurant offers great food and different characters depending on which meal you choose!

As an added plus, there is a fantastic juice (jungle juice) the offer for breakfast. The last time we ate at 1900 Park Fare they had a slushy version of it for you to drink while you waited for your party to be seated!! That was one of my favorite treats on our last trip!

The breakfast buffet at 1900 Park Fare includes all of your favorite American Breakfast items, along with some beloved characters—Winnie the Pooh, the Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Poppins!

The characters interact well with the little ones and are willing to pose for pictures too!

Additionally, Princesses and Princes join you and your family at dinner time!

We have not had the opportunity to have dinner at 1900 Park Fare yet, but we do plan on having dinner with the Princesses and their Princes when the grandchildren are just a little older!


Whispering Canyon Cafe

Whispering Canyon Cafe is not your typical Disney restaurant. No characters. No Disney theming. It is located inside Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort and has a unique atmosphere of its own!

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Whispering Canyon Cafe has FABULOUS food! They have a menu you can choose from with individual entrees, a well as family-style meals.

We always choose the family-style option because of the variety and refillable options! And simply because it is one of our Disney World traditions!

No park ticket is required because Whispering Canyon Cafe is located in a Disney Resort hotel and not a theme park!

Besides great food they offer fun entertainment, such has “pony rides” and other amusing activities for the kiddos to get them up and moving!!

Plus…when you go….make sure you ask your waiter or waitress for KETCHUP!!

One of my children’s FAVORITE things about Whispering Canyon is UNLIMITED REFILLS on MILKSHAKES!

Yes…that is correct….unlimited vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry milkshakes!


Check out these and other fun activities at Disney World!!
