Top 3 All Time Favorite Themed Restaurants in WDW

#1: Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest is one of the best themed areas in Disney World, even outside of the themed dining scope, which is why it places top on my list. It is located in Fantsyland, Magic Kingdom and fits in perfectly as you already feel like you’ve been dropped into a fairytale with The Seven Dwarve’s Mine Train and Ariel’s Undersea Adventure nearby. The attention to detail is impeccable and longer you look around, the more you notice. When you’re in here you feel like you were dropped into the scenes where Beauty and the Beast took place. In fact the Beast himself makes an appearance like clockwork through all dining areas.

Captain EO to be Replaced Next Month

Captain EO, a musical number featuring Michael Jackson and his crew travelling to another world to deliver a gift to the “Supreme Leader”, is to close during early December in Epcot, WDW.

This attraction has been open since 1986 until 1994 when replaced by Honey I Shrunk the Audience and reopened in 2010 until December 2015 after replacing that same show. That means it has seen 13 years on the big screen overall, allowing a few generations worth of kids hold Captain EO as a fond memory in their heart, like I do. If we’re lucky maybe Captain EO will have another come back like it did in 2010. For those of you who have no clue what show I’m talking about, you should watch the video below because you’re missing out!

Background on Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom:

Opening in 2012, SotMK is an interactive game played within, of course, the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. You are one of Merlin’s newest apprentices and he needs your help to keep Hades and his villainous friends from overtaking the Magic Kingdom. You’ll help out Merlin by travelling across the various themed lands inside the MK, with the exception of Tomorrowland, and go head to head in battle with the villains.

WestJet Premiere’s New Disney Plane

WestJet and Disney Parks & Resorts Canada have been paired up in the hopes of creating unforgettable experiences for their customers since 2004. In December 2013, this idea and passion was taken to a whole other level when WestJet debuted their first custom painted airplane (Next-Generation Boeing 737-800). The plane features Cinderella’s castle and Mickey in one of his most famous and memorable forms – as sorcerer Mickey from Fantasia. Its premiere flight was to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL and was dubbed the “Magic Plane.” Truly dedicated to the experience, the Magic Plane’s seats are even decorated with the flurries of magic that leave Mickey’s hands and special Mickey shaped snacks are served to customers. Not only does the  plane go to Disney during the peak season in winter but it also flies to 80 other cities.

WDW Announces Club Disney to Premiere on 12/5

Interactive attraction closures have been pretty high in the past couple of years, especially in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Attractions such as the Backlot Tour (closed Sept 2014), the American Idol experience (closed Aug 2014), the Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow (closed Nov 2014) and One Man’s Dream (closed until Dec 2015) have all ceased operation. This holiday season is also the last time the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will be displayed. In retrospect, it’s obvious all these closures were made because Disney wanted to allot room for Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land which will both be located within DHS.
