Walt Disney World has made a number of changes to provide a safer experience for Guests during COVID-19. My family has visited several times since the Parks reopened, and honestly, I’m more comfortable taking my kids to Disney than our local grocery store. Here’s what you can expect.
(Note: This information is based on our experiences and has remained consistent across several visits. Things are constantly changing in general as more is learned about the virus, so there’s a chance different processes or safety measures may be in place during your visit.)
Masks are required at all times for everyone ages 2 and up, except when dining or swimming. You can remove your mask when actively eating and drinking when you are stationary and physically distanced from everyone else. Sitting on a bench away from people enjoying a Dole Whip is okay, but eating or drinking in line is not allowed.
Since Tangierine Cafe in Epcot’s Morocco pavilion in the World Showcase has long been a family favorite counter service stop, I have been wanting to try the country’s table service restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh, for some time.
Tucked at the very back of the pavilion, Restaurant Marrakesh seems to be one of the most overlooked restaurants at Epcot, but I think it’s also one of the best. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s out of sight or because the food may seem too “exotic” (it’s not!), but it truly is a hidden gem.
Sometimes you feel like you are missing out on parts of your vacation when you are pregnant, but that’s not the case at Walt Disney World. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your vacation when visiting Walt Disney World while pregnant.
Enjoy the rides
Unlike many other theme parks, you can still enjoy the majority of rides while pregnant at Walt Disney World. Still, there are some you should avoid.
Nestled in the shadow of Cinderella Castle is one of my all-time favorite Walt Disney World dining stops – Sleepy Hollow. Located in Liberty Square, this quick service restaurant features sweet and savory waffle sandwiches, funnel cakes and pretzel dogs. There’s even a Breakfast Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich available until noon.
While the Sleepy Hollow menu has a number of sweet treats, like Mickey waffles or funnel cakes topped with powdered sugar or strawberries and whipped cream, my family makes a meal out of the tasty waffle sandwiches.
Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park is a fully immersive experience and fun for the whole family.
As you set out to explore this new land, here’s everything you need to know, from kid-focused ride, food and shopping reviews to where to find changing tables, stroller parking and interactive activities.
La Cantina de San Angel is a counter service restaurant located across from the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase that specializes in tacos, nachos, empanadas and other similar eats.
Originally, we were on a quest for some grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup from the ever-elusive Taste Track. It was a cool (for Florida) winter day, and Tater will never say no to a grilled cheese. But when we arrived, it was closed! I have attempted to get food from Taste Track on at least three separate trips, and it has been closed every single time (including 1:30 p.m. on Presidents Day). I have come to the conclusion that I will never get my Canadian Cheddar and Granny Smith apple deliciousness.
Anyway, without an ADR (Advanced Dining Reservation), we needed a quick grilled cheese replacement. Where else in Epcot could we find some cheese melted between carbs?
