Of all the experiences you can enjoy at Walt Disney World, dining at one of the resort’s restaurants ranks high on many guests’ lists. If you’re looking for the ultimate luxury dining experience during your visit, you can take advantage of one of the Signature Dining locations in the parks, hotels, and Disney Springs. Signature restaurants are considered the best Table Service locations available at the resort offering fine dining in a myriad of cuisines. While these restaurants are obviously the most expensive dining options available, they are also regularly voted as some of the best meals you can have in Central Florida. From extensive wine lists to some of the most elaborate decor found at the resort, there’s a lot to love about these upscale eateries.
Many Signature Dining restaurants have a dress code in place. This dress code requires guests to wear a version of business casual, men must wear khakis, slacks or dress shorts, and collared shirts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Sport coats are optional. Women must wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses, or dress shorts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Tank tops, flip-flops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut-offs, torn clothing, and t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics are not permitted. This dress code is not in place at Signature Dining locations inside the theme parks, so there’s no need to pack an extra set of fancier clothes for your day in the. park when dining at one of those locations.
Disney’s Signature Dining reservations still work basically the same as other Table Service offerings. Currently, guests can make dining reservations beginning at 60 days prior to arrival. Before the resort’s closure due to COVID-19, guests were able to make reservations beginning at 180 days prior. Reservations can be made on the My Disney Experience app, website, by phone, or with the help of a Travel Planner who specializes in Disney Destinations like our friends at Key to the World Travel.
At this time Walt Disney World has temporarily suspended the use of dining plans at the resort. Before the pause, Signature Dining locations could be booked and paid for using two Table Service dining credits per person. While we expect dining plans to return in the future and that these locations will still require multiple credits, there’s no current timeframe on when they become available again.
Please note that not all restaurants are currently open at the resort during its phased reopening. Any restaurants currently unavailable are indicated below, and the list will be updated as the resort moves to reopen more locations.
