Whether you’re having your wedding in the parks, or are simply getting married in Orlando, there’s a lot of Disney love to go around! You’ll have tons to plan for – including the location of your rehearsal dinner. Check out these unique options that will create a night everyone will remember for years to come.
1. Dinner within the Disney theme parks
There are literally hundreds of restaurants within the Disney theme parks. You’ll have so many options here, from affordable counter service restaurants to sit-down dinners that will cost hundreds of dollars per person – and everything in between! If you are going to do a sit-down dinner, make sure you make your reservations as far in advance as possible and make Disney know of any allergy issues. You’ll also have to make sure that everyone has valid park admission on the day you’re dining, as it is required to get into the parks.
2. Dinner at a Walt Disney World Resort restaurant
If everyone in your party doesn’t plan to have park admission on the day of your rehearsal dinner, but you really want a very Disneyfied experience, you’re not out of luck! You can still choose to have dinner at one of the Disney World resorts. Once again, you have tons of options with different cuisines, price points, and popularity. A common misconception is that you have to be a guest at the resorts to eat there. This is simply not the case! You can save by renting Orlando vacation homes and then head to a resort for dinner.
3. Sample tastes from around the world
There’s no question that Orlando is a foodie’s paradise! There are so many delicious cuisines to try. One popular place that manages to tow the line between casual and upscale is Café Tu Tu Tango. There you can sample dishes prepared with an international flavor in mind. What’s more, this restaurant is built to mimic an upscale artist’s loft. Browse the colorful, unique, local artwork – and then buy a favorite piece to take home with you!
4. Get trendy in Thornton Park
For younger wedding parties – or those that are just young at heart – Mucho Tequila is a great spot. Located in the trendy Thornton Park neighborhood, there you can not only eat some of the most delicious food in Orlando, but you can sample 130 different types of tequila! Be sure to check out the unique apparel they have for sale, too! Your rehearsal dinner will be more than just a dinner – it’ll be an opportunity to shop for unique goods from around the world.
