A holiday to Walt Disney World isn’t just all about the Mouse and the rides, oh no, there is the food! Some say it’s a theme park all in itself when it comes to Disney Dining, and I’ll be inclined to agree. When it comes to planning our holidays to Orlando, we spend a fair amount of time deciding which restaurants we want to eat at, and which snacks we want to buy! I mean, come on, I named our last visit Dine Around Disney! So here are 12 fun Disney dining facts… in numbers, because, numbers are impressive, and you won’t believe some of them!
