Walk-Up Availability at Disney World Restaurants Available 'Now' in My Disney Experience

by Mommy Frog on August 21, 2020

Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks.

Here Are This Week’s Theme Park Highlights:

Walk-Up Availability Now Available for Disney World Restaurants in My Disney Experience

  • With more limited capacity in the parks, we've been thrilled to find that formerly hard-to-get Disney World dining reservations have more availability now! In fact, some restaurants have even had walk-up availability — and the My Disney Experience app is rolling out or testing a feature that can show you which restaurants are accepting walk-ups "now!" Once on property, guests can select "Check Dining Availability" (formerly "Make a Dining Reservation") in the app, and opt for "now" as the timeframe. The app will then show you restaurants with walk-up availability, starting with those closest to your current location. Cool!
  • Central Park Crepes is now open at Universal Studios Florida! The brand-new counter-service restaurant offers a mix of sweet and savory crepes, including a vegetarian option, all under $10. (At the top of the Frog Fam's must-try list is the Cookies & Cream crepe, which is filled with Oreos, Oreo mascarpone, whipped cream, chocolate ganache, and powdered sugar. Drool.)

Fireworks on Demand in Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

  • In an effort to maintain social distancing efforts, upon reopening, Disney World has temporarily pressed pause on its nighttime spectaculars. But there's hoppy news! Disney World Resort hotels are now streaming virtual fireworks on demand so that guests can catch "Happily Ever After" from the comfort of their rooms at the end of their Disney day. The story comes alive ...
  • In the cutest thing we've seen this week, SeaWorld San Diego hosted a puppy sleepover ... and since the pups headed to Shark Encounter, they donned their very own shark fins! All of the puppies on the field trip were up for adoption through Misson Bay Puppy Rescue and Pups N Boots. Both organizations are dedicated to helping pets find their forever homes. 

That’s it for the theme park news this week! Have a great weekend. 

Hoppy planning!

Keep hopping, Mommy Frog!
