Is Storybook Dining at Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World worth the hype? Worth the price for dinner without the kids? Let’s take a look and see!
Walt Disney World offers a ton of character dining options in and around the theme parks and resorts but we wanted to check out their newest option at the Wilderness Lodge without our kids! We had heard some really good reviews from our friends about the food and theme so we decided to check it out and wanted to pass along what we thought of the food and if it was worth it!
First off, the dining area is absolutely beautiful and themed nicely without overdoing it. Some character dining locations cannot be used if you took the characters out of the area but this was not one of them! There were some hints of the characters but the normal eye would look right past them (except the photopass area where you meet the evil queen)
The food was the star of the show here folks! The meal comes with an appetizer plate, entree, and dessert plate to share as well.
The appetizer plate included winter squash bisque with a marshmallow lollipop, hunters pie, and the Wicked Shrimp Cocktail. All three appetizers were full of flavor and great portions to not overshadow the rest of the meal.
As for entrees, there are six different choices to choose from but we picked the Royal Prime Rib and Bashful’s Butter Poached Snapper. The prime rib lived up to its name as it was one of the best prime rib dishes I have had not only at Disney but in general in Orlando! Mandee had the snapper which was full of flavor and was portioned beautifully!
As for the desserts, the dinner came with 4 different desserts which includes the Miner’s Treasure which is a sponge cake with buttercream icing, the Fairy Tale Gooseberry Pie, a white chocolate Poison Apple, and the Hunters Gift to the Queen which is maple popcorn with a white chocolate heart and presented in the most amazing way!
Lastly, the characters at Storybook Dining were Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen. The first 3 characters roam around the dining room and come to your table once for photos you can take with your own camera. The Evil Queen is posted at a specific area and there is a photopass photographer there to take your pictures! The characters are not overwhelming and do not do autographs however you are presented with an autograph card in the shape of an apple when you arrive!
Honestly, this swiftly became our favorite character meal. The food alone stood up itself and is worth adults, regardless if they have kids or not, going to Artist Point to eat!
