I am thick into the planning process for my next visit to Walt Disney World. To say I am excited about this trip is a gross understatement. Our December trip will include three destinations: 3 nights at Walt Disney World, 3 nights at Universal Orlando and a 4-night cruise on RCCL’s Mariner of the Seas.
Since we will only be at Walt Disney World for 3 nights, I was originally thinking we would just do quick-service dining. But, ultimately, I ended up reserving 3 table-service dinners. Here’s what I chose and why:
The first table-service I booked was ‘Ohana. If you’ve been a friend of my blog for long you know that I love ‘Ohana. Besides the feel of the restaurant (“ohana means family”), I love the atmosphere and especially the food. I lovingly refer to ‘Ohana as “a carnivore’s paradise” because the all-you-care-to-eat offerings of grilled chicken, shrimp and steak are a dream for any meat-loving guest. But my fave, and what keeps me coming back again and again, is of course ‘Ohana’s Bread Pudding with Bananas Foster Sauce. This is worth a visit in and of itself.
Candlelight Processional Dining at Rose & Crown
My second table-service selection was the Candlelight Processional Dining Package at the Rose & Crown Dining Room. Disney has some wonderful holiday offerings, but one of the very best offerings, in my humble opinion, is the Candlelight Processional. It has been a longtime favorite and I am really looking forward to it. If you’ve never been the Candlelight Processional it is truly music to my soul.
A celebrity narrator (this visit being Neil Patrick Harris) tells the biblical story of Christmas. Interwoven into the production is a 50-piece orchestra and multi-member choir who together provide and inspirational backdrop with songs of hope and joy. It really puts me into the spirit!
The reason I chose the Rose & Crown Dining Room as my dining experience is because I love fish n chips. But, I am really picky about it! Rose & Crown is one of the 3 places anywhere that I eat it. Plus, we enjoy the laid-back pub atmosphere there, as well as the location.
Speaking of a laid back pub atmosphere, my third table-service booking was my favorite Disney Springs dining location, Raglan Road. We weren’t even planning to visit Disney Springs because our time is limited, but I will go out of my way to dine there. The food offerings are great, the Irish dancers are awesome and the Bread and Butter Pudding is to die for. It is definitely the highlight of my visit.
Special note to my readers: while at Disney Springs, I plan to purchase some holiday merch for upcoming holiday games and giveaways.
There is the rundown of my 3 table-service bookings. If you were limited to only 3 nights, which table-service restaurants would you choose and why?
