  • So many good choices and only 24 hours to eat them!

  • As yummy as it all sounds that is one time I stay as far away as possible :/ Maybe one of these days we will brave a 24 hour party but not this time..

  • Is this the only 24 hour event this summer? Will there be others?

  • Sounds like an awesome 24 hour gluttony fest!! Wish I was going =(

  • It all looks heavenly! I hope some of the “limited time” treats make it to the daily menus!

  • Ah, these sound amazing! Any word on the opening times for the parking lots to get into the park?

  • No vegetarian options apart from one soup and one appetizer. A bit short on magic for those of us who don’t eat meat or fish.

  • I want sneak peaks for the WDW 24 hour!!

  • Where are all the Vegetarian options…there is nothing on here for those folks…hope there are options out there…

  • why aren’t these always options?

  • Any special treats planned for Magic Kingdom?

  • Any word on how park-hopping is going to work? At the last 24-hour event, the park was at capacity and there was a several-hour-long line to get in. If the parks are that busy, I am imagining park-hopping will not really be a thing?

  • Thanks for posting this! One of my favorite parts about last year’s event was the bananas foster french toast at 2 in the morning. I’m glad to see it’ll be back!

  • Woo hoo, got my reservation for Blue Bayou!

  • Ugh! This post is torture! Bring all these wonderful foods to WDW 24 hour event! I’m excited because I just found out yesterday that I can go!

  • So many decisions and only 24 hours to get them all.
