If you are on the search for a grand dining experience while on your Disney World vacation, look no further. Make plans to dine at the whimsical 1900 Park Fare and we’re sure you will have that majestic experience you are searching for!
1 – “Grand” Sets the Tone
Located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort neighboring Magic Kingdom, 1900 Park Fare matches the “grand” tone of the resort. Whether or not you are a resort guest at the Grand Floridian, all are welcome to dine at 1900 Park Fare! If you are visiting by car, simply make a reservation in advance, and the Cast Member at the gate will welcome you in to park. Explore the impressive Grand Floridian lobby where you will make a left from the lobby’s main entrance to enter 1900 Park Fare. After being greeted by the restaurant Host/Hostess, your party will be invited to take a PhotoPass photo in front of a beautiful wall canvas, which includes a vibrant castle. From there, you will be escorted to your table. The Victorian carousel theme of 1900 Park Fare is evident with the carousel horses situated throughout the restaurant. Take time to pick out which carousel horse is your favorite! Don’t forget to look up at the wall above the main entrance to see “Big Bertha” – a late 1800’s Limonaire French band organ. Bright and airy with light colors, we always find 1900 Park Fare to be a comfortable setting while still holding true to the grand experience one would expect out of a restaurant located at the Grand Floridian Resort.
2 – Supercalifragilistic Breakfast
Serving breakfast, afternoon tea, and dinner at 1900 Park Fare – it’s hard to choose which dining experience to enjoy! While 1900 Park Fare is a popular place to dine, it never seems as crowded as Chef Mickey’s or Cinderella’s Royal Table. Plus, the characters at 1900 Park Fare are incredibly unique and not always characters you can easily find within the parks. The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast is a favorite for us when it comes to breakfast choices at Disney! Indulge in a full buffet spread, which includes items such as hickory-smoked ham from the carving station, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, grits, Mickey waffles, cinnamon buns, French toast, fruit, and much more. We especially love the incredibly fresh made-to-order eggs. While you dine, characters will be making their way around the tables, so have your autograph books and cameras ready. During breakfast, we were visited by Mary Poppins (it is a Supercalifragilistic breakfast after all), Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, and Alice and the Mad Hatter. We loved seeing these characters and left extremely full!
3 – Tea Time for Kids
What better way to take a break with the kids in the middle of the afternoon than with an afternoon tea at 1900 Park Fare? Known as the Wonderland Tea Party, this is an afternoon tea, especially for kids ages 4 to 12 years old. They will have a chance to experience an hour-long tea party, much like the one found in Alice and Wonderland, with games, stories, cupcakes, and tea (tastes like apple juice!). The best part is the cupcakes are decorated by the kiddos themselves with Alice and Mad Hatter visiting for fun! Make reservations as this special experience is for a maximum of 25 children. Parents can either stay and observe or take that time as a break for themselves – maybe at the Grand Floridian Spa?!
4 – Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner
We like “Happily Ever After,” and at 1900 Park Fare’s dinner, you can expect just that! Known for an outstanding dinner buffet and superb characters – Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner has grown tremendously in popularity. Of course, people come flocking to dine with the beloved Cinderella and her handsome Prince Charming. Not only does the happy couple make their way around the tables, but you may even catch them, stopping for a moment to dance together. Just when things are looking sweet, the troublesome Step-Mother (Lady Tremaine) and Step-Sisters (Anastasia and Drizella) just might show up! Who knows, maybe the Fairy Godmother will even make an appearance. While this fantastic cast of characters are roaming the restaurant, you’ll want to be sure you are going back for seconds at the dinner buffet which includes items such as key lime ginger grilled chicken, Mississippi catfish, beef stir fry, salads, shrimp, beef, pork, vegetables, potatoes, and more. Kids will especially love the kid station with macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, chicken tenders, and several other offerings – but no worries adults, you are welcome to enjoy this kid station as well! Of course, we recommend checking out the tasty dessert portion of the buffet before ending your magical dining experience.
5 – In the Know
In the past, 1900 Park Fare has offered a brunch option between the normal breakfast and dinner hours (around 12:45pm – 3:00pm) during the busy holiday season. The menu items are a great blend of breakfast favorites with light lunch options such as salads and a burrito bar. Keep in mind that last year’s characters were not available for this brunch offering. For all current dining experiences (breakfast, tea, or dinner), we highly recommend you make dining reservations early – 180-days in advance, if possible. While reservations at not required but recommended for both breakfast and dinner, they are required for the Wonderland Tea Party for kids. Securing a reservation will keep you from the chance of being turned away or having to wait a long period of time for breakfast or dinner. Most importantly, get ready to have a “grand” dining experience that will likely become a family favorite!
