Disney Parks Best Bites – July 2016

There was a lot to celebrate in July – from patriotic cupcakes for Independence Day, to fabulous new eateries such as Art Smith’s Homecoming and Frontera Cocina opening at Disney Springs. Here’s a taste of some of our favorite new eats (and dining tips) from Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts for the month of July!

Making dining reservations at a Disneyland Resort table-service restaurant is easier than ever with the Disneyland App! Guests with a Disneyland App account can now view availability, book or cancel dining reservations via a new section – My Plans – on the Dashboard. With this enhancement to the app, guests are no longer required to go to their internet browser to make, view or cancel dining reservations.
