Walt Disney World known for fine dining, not just burgers and fries

Posted Tuesday, September 22, 2009 9:55 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Over the past two decades, Disney World has gone from fast food to fine dining, garnering attention from serious chefs and foodies alike. Its dozens of restaurants cover almost every cuisine, from regional American to South African. Its wine lists are full of prized (and often hard-to-find) bottles from across the globe.

Brian -- I would expect that the pricing for the various meal plans was based in large part on average/typical dining bills with some built in opportunity for upselling. There is probably less of an opportunity for the upselling on return visits as folks for whom the plans do not make sense presumably do not get them on the return trip (if we were to go back, we would probably not get the meal plan).

And I thought the food was very middle of the road. Was good but nothing at all special. Overpriced based on what you could get at a comparable non-resort/vacation place but that goes with the territory. My kids like the drive in too but it wasn't the food.

If they could only do something about drooling children collapsing on you on the monorail!
