Hours and Events Beefing Up To Meet Demand
With the Free Dining promotion (running today through October 3) drawing more people to the parks that imagined, Walt Disney World is adding shows, dinners and hours across property to accommodate everyone.
For example, Mickey’s Backyard BBQ has added August 18 & 25, and September 1, 11, 15, 22 and 29 to their dinner buffet schedule.
Chef Mickey’s, at the Contemporary, has added a Character Lunch Buffet from 12:30-2:30 pm from August 16-29 and September 20-October 3.
On an unrelated note, Animal Kingdom will be seeing extended operating hours in Africa and Asia today through the end of August. This is because of a computer glitch that allowed guests to book Dining Reservations in some restaurants after closing time. Oops!
