Here’s our CP Dining tip:  Ask every time about getting a discount!  There are too many restaurants and blackout dates and restrictions to keep track of!  We always ask (nicely of course!) at every place we eat at, including the QSFB ones!  You just never know!

Dining reservations can be booked directly online at: www.disneyworld.com/dining or by calling 407-WDW-CAST.

The fine print.

Dining Recommendation:  Our very favorite restaurant at WDW is Trail’s End at Fort Wilderness.  It serves the best breakfast ever! Using your CM dining discount, the breakfast buffet with tax and gratuity is under $15!!!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
