Dining at Disney For Christmas

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Christmas is my most favorite time of year, combine that with Walt Disney World and something really magical happens!  Whenever I talk about Christmas with someone food always seems to come up in the conversation.  I think most people have some sort of meal tradition around the holidays!  So if you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World over the Christmas holiday, you may be wondering where you will dine for the holidays.

My family happens to be going to Walt Disney World over Christmas this year and I had so much fun planning where we would be eating.  When I was choosing our meals I took into consideration things we loved to eat at Christmas but also what we love to eat at Walt Disney World.  A Christmas breakfast is always fun so we looked at the park schedule we created and decided a Christmas Eve breakfast at Kona Cafe would be perfect!  My family loves the Tonga Toast and juice at Kona so it is a great way to start our day.  The rest of Christmas Eve we are at Hollywood Studios so we plan to enjoy a carrot cake cookie and eat at a counter service location for dinner.   One of my favorite Christmas traditions is eating hotdogs in the car while we drive around and look at Christmas lights.  So I plan to enjoy a Mac and Cheese and Truffle Oil Hot Dog from Fairfax Fare before heading over to check out the Osbourne Lights!

Christmas morning we are waking up early and heading straight to Magic Kingdom.  Normally, our Christmas morning tradition includes waking up super early and eating cinnamon rolls.  To honor this long standing tradition we are planning on making our way to Gastons Tavern Christmas morning and enjoying cinnamon rolls together as a family.  For dinner on Christmas evening we have reservations at ‘Ohana.   We talk about dinner at ‘Ohana at least once a week, it is our absolute favorite meal on Walt Disney World property!  I can’t think of a better Christmas Dinner for my family to enjoy then all you can eat steak, pork, chicken, shrimp, sides, bread and bread pudding!  Include coconut races and the hula and that is my perfect recipe for a wonderful Christmas meal!
