Disney Dine & Show
A great way to get more from a day at the Walt Disney World Resort is to book a show dining package – with reserved seating – without having to make a Fastpass+ reservation for it. If this works for your family, it’s a two-for-one show and dining deal that can make sense.
Disney World’s latest offering is a Festival of the Lion King dining package at Tiffins, the two-time winner of our Theme Park Insider Award for the world’s best theme park restaurant. Festival of the Lion King also is a former Theme Park Insider Award winner.
Disney is also offering an option to add a safari tour with the reserved show seating and the Tiffins meal.
The Festival of the Lion King dining package is $74/$99 for adults and $29/$49 for kids ages 3-9 (higher price including the safari). Both packages include priority reserved seating at a showing of Festival of the Lion King in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The meals are a three-course lunch or dinner at Tiffins and include a choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert, as well as wine, beer, or non-alcoholic beverage.
The safari tour is through the park’s African outback escorted by a special guide through rugged terrain to see some of the world’s most exotic animals in their unique habitats.
Reservations now accepted by calling 1-407-939-3463 for dining times from August 13 through November 21.
Other show dining packages at Walt Disney World include a Rivers of Light dining package, also at Tiffins as well as at Tusker House Restaurant, a Fantasmic! dining package at The Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood & Vine, and Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Festival of Fantasy parade dining package at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom.
