Animal Kingdom is one of our favorite parks at Walt Disney World in Florida. We love the variety of activities there including the animal exhibits, excellent musical production shows and the Mount Everest roller coaster. One of our favorite things to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park is to catch a meal at the awesome Tusker House buffet located in the Africa neighborhood.
Hubby and I loved to spend time in the adults-only Solarium area aboard the Oasis of the Seas. There is a restaurant there which serves meals three times a day. Breakfast and lunch buffet are complimentary but dinner is truly special occasion that often requires reservations and carries a $20 per person charge. Our experience was absolutely delightful and we found the fee perfectly reasonable for the quality and amount of food we received.
Giovanni’s Table is a family style Italian restaurant located in the Central Park neighborhood on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. We had originally made reservations just for Hubby and myself to have a quiet dinner there but we were not aware of the limited hours at Adventure Ocean on Embarkation day. Fortunately we were able to adjust our reservation immediately when we boarded and were able to add the girls. Giovanni’s table is one of the few child friendly specialty restaurants aboard the Oasis of the Seas.
I’ll be honest: I usually avoid the Downtown Disney area like the plague. Since we moved to Florida two years ago we have been deeply immersed in everything Disney. As annual passholders we frequented Walt Disney World often during our first year here, taking quick family dates to the parks on random weekday afternoons and and relaxing afternoons at the Downtown Disney shops. In the last year though we’ve avoided the area in general due to the headache inducing traffic surrounding the area.
Now I finally understand why: Downtown Disney is being reborn as Disney Springs with new areas to shop and dine and a transformed look. My husband and I are real foodies and the first thing I researched when I heard about the construction and renovations was the new dining options that were planned. Morimoto Asia has been on my radar for months now.
