Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the hungriest of them all? If you’re looking to partake in a fanciful meal set in an immersive enchanted forest, then you might want to make a visit to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge this winter.

Comments

  • Enough with the Character Dining. Sometime you just want a great meal in a beautiful setting. We loved Artist Point and will miss it. This hotel needs a fine dining restaurant.

  • Sorry to see Artist Point go. It had been one of our favorites. I realize character dining is attractive to families but for those with older kids it has little appeal. The new menu also has very limited and not terribly appealing. The change leaves the expanding Wilderness Lodge area we very poor dining options.

  • To anyone hoping for a reservation during Christmas week, check again. I just found my pick of dates and times for four between 12/24-1/1!

  • I think this is my favorite character ensemble for dinner! I seriously hope we can snag a reservation for our Nov 2019 trip!

  • I’m so sad. My husband and I had our wedding dinner 20 years ago at Artist Point and it has become a tradition to return every year and every time we visit. We’ve even brought many family and friends with us over the years. It’ll be sad to end such a meaningful family tradition. But also it leaves nowhere else to have a nice quiet dinner at Wilderness Lodge.

  • So in the end I was able to get a reservation for 4 people on Feb 2nd
    No openings for 6 at all…

  • I’ve been on the phone for about 25 minutes… the reservationist cannot find a table for us.
    IN ONLY 3 DAYS — IT IS BOOKED SOLID THROUGH APRIL 5TH.
    The reservation clerk was very helpful and patient while we tried to find a date.
    SHE SAID TO TRY BACK LATER…extremely disappointed that we can’t get a table.

  • Ever since I read about this new dining experience I have been waiting patiently for the reservations to open up. I could not get in until January 11th but that’s ok. If you want to go you need to book soon. It’s filing up fast!!

  • My wife and I are going to miss the old Artist Point.

  • Oh wow!
    This is just beautiful and delicious looking cuisine! You instantly had me with the prime rib and popover but as I scrolled down, my goodness those little cauldrons are just adorable! Too many incredible items to choose from, MUST reserve our families dining to include Storybook Dining at Artist Point!
    Thank-you!

  • Can’t wait! Do you know how many credits this will be on the Disney Dining Plan?

  • It sounds like such a wonderful dining experience, I was very eager to go and take my kids for this experience. However I am very sad as it is only opening on the 16th of December which will be days after our very first and probably only visit to Disney! December is such a special time and it would be so wonderful if they opened it at the beginning of December that more people could experience it.
