Extra Eateries During Free Dining
Beginning on August 15, a few restaurants will be temporarily open in the Magic Kingdom to help absorb some of the Free Dining crowds.
From August 15 – August 28, and then again from September 19 – October 2, The Diamond Horseshoe in Frontierland will open for table service meals, serving family-style turkey dinners from 5 – 9pm. It will also offer a Counter Service lunch from 11am – 3pm, with hot and cold sandwiches on the menu.
Also, over in Adventureland, El Pirate Y el Perico (The Pirate and the Parrot) will serve Mexican food in a Counter Service format from August 15 – September 4.
These locations are only open during the busiest times of the year, which the first month or two of Free Dining will be.
