Posted: Tuesday March 5, 2024 6:00am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney has opened reservations for the April 10 reopening of 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort in Walt Disney World.

Reservations are available for breakfast and dinner from 8 am to 12 pm and 4 pm to 9 pm daily.

1900 Park fare is on the Disney Dining Plan and requires 1 credit.

Disney characters appearing at 1900 park Fare will include Aladdin in his Prince Ali attire, Cinderella, Mirabel, and Tiana, showcasing her new look for Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

We still don't have a full menu or pricing, but Disney says that some dishes will be "inspired by Disney wish-makers, like Aladdin and Tiana."

You can start your day with classic breakfast foods, like Eggs Benedict. At dinner, get a taste of New Orleans when you try Tiana's Gumbo. Some flavorful favorites await you at breakfast and dinner alike—including the Grand Floridian Strawberry Soup and a carving station full of savory selections.

The menu also features kid-friendly options—like Mickey waffles at breakfast, as well as chicken, pizza and macaroni-and-cheese at dinner.

Snow White at least makes some sense with their "theme", but it's still very disappointing since she's the most easily meetable character outside of Mickey and friends. She's regularly available at Storybook Dining, Askersus, Cinderella's Royal Table, on Main Street, and in Epcot in Germany (plus is a potential "visiting princess" in Fairytale Hall). Which, I guess, means it makes sense why she's such an easy to grab backup.

This place would fare better without the characters, IMHO.

I saw in another Disney Facebook group that Cinderella was absent one day recently and Snow White took her place. So it seems Snow White is the back up for everyone.

When will they bring back the Perfectly Princess Tea? It was always the highlight of our trips for the granddaughters. We love Rose Petal.

For the prices Disney charges I think it is very reasonable to expect a backup to be in place, especially since we all know we aren't really going for the food in the case of most of these character meals.

Ohh yeah totally! For (any) Prince at a Character Dining is the most unique! Makes me wonder if they don't have a backup in any case means they basically don't take the new* lineup of characters here seriously 🙄 or it doesn't matter really.

I more meant unique as he is currently the only male face character at a character meal. For female face characters, you have CRT, Akershus, and Storybook Dining. Aladdin is the one and only male face character currently available. Back ups should be in place.

No, the DDP started well after 9/11. It's nearly always a money loser for guests and a huge money winner for Disney, but people like it as it allows them to feel like it's an all-inclusive trip. Sometimes Disney would offer "free dining" promotions, which came with a dining plan, but you'd be paying essentially the rack rate for the room, so there was little savings.

Mmm. I don't see Aladdin as unique, you can easily find him or meet him at Magic Kingdom. The only unique thing is him wearing his Prince Ali outfit which that alone is unique here!

Thanks for the reply. We only ever started going to WDW in 2009. My understanding however, is that the dining plan only started after tourism was negatively impacted by the 9/11 terror attacks. Is that accurate?

The number of restaurants has improved overall, with Disney Springs adding quite a few good options. The quality of the food at the Disney-owned restaurants was decimated in the late '00s due to the emergence of the Disney Dining Plan. With it, they forced restaurants to cut down menus, use cheaper ingredients, homogenize the sourcing, etc. If people were paying in advance, they had every incentive to make the food cost as cheap as possible to save money. Famously the head of F&B, who had seen taking WDW from a burgers & fries resort to a world class food destination in the 90s/'00s with places like Citrico's, V&As, Jiko, etc left because he didn't like how they were no longer allowing restaurants to manage their own operations and menus, which was a key part to his effort. https://scottjosephorlando.com/dieter-hannig-leaving-walt-disney-world-co/ If you'd have gone to Chef Mickey's 15-20 years ago, for example, you'd have found that nearly every dish was made from scratch in-house (RIP to the homemade parmesan mashed potatoes). Now most things are either Sysco or prepped off-site.

Exactly. The only male character shouldn’t be absent on day 3. I stand by my 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂😂

The face palm was likely because it was only day 3. You'd think they'd have backups ready. It can't be a surprise that people get sick.
