Fall is just around the corner and recently we’ve shared some pretty exciting updates about Halloween fun planned for Magic Kingdom Park and tasty treats that will be available at all our parks. As part of our phased approach to reopening, we’re adding more Guest-favorite dining choices this fall at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios – which you’ll definitely want to add to your fall dining must-do list.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there’s some Halloween fun in store at Hollywood & Vine where Minnie’s Seasonal Dining is set to return Sept. 25. While it may look a little different than the last time you visited, you can get in the spooky spirit during Minnie’s Halloween Dine with a monster feast served to your table where you will be able to wave and snap photos of your favorite characters such as Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse and their friends. It’s a boo-tastic time filled with Halloween décor and music, scary good food, and more! 

Beginning Sept. 24, Guests can enjoy dining in the enchanted, fairytale setting of Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park. Enjoy a delicious regal banquet with unforgettable main courses ranging from roasted chicken breast and tenderloin of beef to chef’s fish of the day. The princesses will be taking a break from their royal duties greeting Guests, but there will be plenty of delicious fare and fun to be enjoyed in this beautiful, one-of-a-kind restaurant.

Both of these immersive dining experiences will be available for reservations on and in the My Disney Experience app beginning Sept. 11.

Additionally, some more snack and quick-service options are reopening soon! Gaston’s Tavern at Magic Kingdom Park will return Sept. 4 and the ABC Commissary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopens for walk-in quick service for lunch beginning Oct. 8. If you need any advice on which dining options might work best for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, be sure to ask the Disney vacation planning experts at planDisney. With so many delicious delights to try this fall, I’ll certainly be coming to the parks hungry and ready to dig in!


  • Will there be any Halloween festivities for children? My daughter is 5 and I would like for her to be able to trick or treat on Halloween! We’re definitely going to try to get a reservation for Hollywood and Vine for the day we’re going to Hollywood Studios, but I want her to be able to trick or treat on Halloween 🙂

  • I looked up both restaurants for the dates after they are reopening and they are only offering lunch and dinner options. Pricing hasn’t been updated to reflect the princesses not visiting during meals at Cinderella’s Royal Table from what I could see.

  • It’s nice to see another step in the phased reopening. This has been one strange year, and while it’s still important to take proper precautions (which Disney seems to be VERY good at), another step in the direction of normalcy is welcome.

    Also, I like Elizabeth’s mention above of starting their family’s vacation with breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table. That’s a fantastic tradition, and beats my own tradition of “have Disney popcorn at least once over the course of the trip, and otherwise hoard my snack options on the Disney Dining Plan so I can take home a BUNCH of Goofy’s Candy Co. jelly beans.” Ellizabeth’s tradition is definitely better, but every time I open another bag of jelly beans, it’s like I’m living just a small part of the Walt Disney World life for a few minutes.

  • Will Hollywood & Vine have Minnie and friends for breakfast or will it be the Disney Jr. characters? So excited this will be open for our trip!!!

  • Will Cinderella’s Royal Table be open for breakfast? This notice doesn’t include which meal times will be available. We always start our vacation with breakfast at the Castle.

  • Will breakfast be available at Cinderella’s Royal Table, and what will the new pricing be without the character interaction?

  • Will Cinderella’s Royal Table have a new pricing structure?
