From October the 1st Downtown Disney looks set to be one of the hottest places on the dining circuit as Disney work a little harder to boost attendances at this already popular dining and shopping area in Walt Disney World.
The concept is familiar to Orlando regulars during fall.
It very much mirrors the Orlando wide ‘Magical Dining’ program that fills restaurants for $33 per person for an amazing 3 course meal during September.
Disney’s Foodtopia follows in many ways, it lasts a month (October in Disney’s case), select restaurants are participating, and a special ‘prix-fix’ menu for the event runs alongside the regular offerings.
Disney have also borrowed the a similar price point, and in fact at $30, they are a few dollars less than the Magical Dining’s $33!
I bet the ‘Disney Bashers’ don’t thank them though!
Amazingly, Disney have pulled out the stops in their restaurant offerings, and from the list of 8 participating locations in Downtown Disney, only the Raglan Road is notable in its absence!
Bongo’s Cuban Café, House of Blues, Paradiso 37, Planet Hollywood, Portobello, Splitsville Luxury Lanes and Wolfgang Puck Café make up the list of 7 for $33, and Fulton’s Crab House thunders in with a whopping $60 for a 3 course.
Sure Fulton’s is great, but our thoughts are that the saving just isn’t enough to justify going there instead of one of those that are offering some amazing dishes for just $30!
Is there a catch? You bet!
All you need to do is find a table between 5:30pm and 7:30pm, and believe me, that is not going to be as easy as you think during this crazy Disney Dining Offer!
