1900 Park Fare at The Grand Floridian Resort

1900 Park Fare is a character buffet restaurant at The Grand Floridian Resort at Walt Disney World Resort that features a wide variety of dishes. During the dinner service, you can meet Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Drizella and Anastasia.

We had one of the first available dinner reservations for the dinner seating and we had plenty of time to go through the buffet line one time before the characters started making their rounds. We went to the buffet a second time after we met a couple of characters. The characters took a break and Chris went to the dessert bar to get us a plate to share. The only thing we didn't enjoy from the buffet was the lemon tart.

You can take a look at the food here first....

A signature dish, the strawberry bisque!

Catfish, Butternut squash ravioli, mashed potatoes, creamy chicken, cheese tortellini, broccoli salad

Blue Glowtini

Salmon, Jasmine Rice, Prime Rib, Mongolian Beef, Catfish and Mashed Potatoes

Our shared dessert plate-gummy bears, rice crispy treat, brownie, cannoli, and a lemon tart
Rum Swirl
And we got to meet the characters too!

Prince Charming mostly talked about how lovely Cinderella looked
Cinderella wondered if Gus Gus had been nibbling off the buffet
Lady Tremaine was discussing the difficulties of living in the castle
Anastasia wondered if she had the prettiest dress
Drizella asked if I was happy with my prince.
1900 Park Fare is not to be missed if you are staying at The Grand Floridian or if you love Cinderella.

How to Park at Walt Disney World Theme Parks

If you have never driven to one of the Walt Disney World parks, it can be a bit intimidating as you are pulling into the parking lot. There are people EVERYWHERE, lots of moving cars, lots of excitement.

But if you follow these five tips, parking will be a breeze.

1. Follow the parking attendant's instructions.
You will be directed to follow the car in front of you and park next to them.

2. Wait until the car behind you parks next to you to open your car doors.
When you stop your car, another car will be pulling up next to you momentarily. Waiting for the car next to you to park will ensure your safety, the safety of the parking attendant and the safety of others.

3. When you are out of your car, make sure to walk in front the parked cars.
Moving cars will be behind your parked car and by walking in front of the row where you parked, that gives you some distance between yourself and moving cars.

4. Walk!
No one wants to start the day with a scraped knee or busted lip.

5. Take a picture of the sign where you parked your car.
Trams will drop you off at the end of the day and taking a quick picture of your parking lot row will keep you from walking any extra at the end of the day.

And those are my 5 tips for parking at Walt Disney World! Enjoy the parking trams...they are my favorite form of Disney transportation!
