One of the newest, most exciting experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort has nothing to do with a ride, a new attraction or an impressive new show. Disney’s Highway in the Sky Dine Around is a new dining experience available to Guests of the Disney World Resort, and it’s a blast! Take off on a journey around the monorail loop, stopping here and there to enjoy courses as part of a fun progressive dinner. Sounds fun, right? Here are eight things you’ll want to know if you’re planning to enjoy this new experience.

8. It’s new, and it’s popular!

Disney World’s Highway in the Sky Dine Around is one of the newer experiences available to Guests in the parks—and so far, it’s a hit! Guests enjoy the thrill of a progressive dinner of sorts—Disney style. The dine around is intended for Guests ages 12 and up. The cost is $170 per person, and Disney’s Dining Plan credits cannot be used for this experience. Space is limited, so it’s important to reserve your spots in advance. Call (407) WDW-DINE for more information or to book your reservation.

7. Five courses, three resorts

The Dine Around welcomes Guests to enjoy five different courses throughout the evening. The experience takes place at three of Disney’s most beautiful resorts. Check-in is at The Wave of American Flavors at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where you’ll enjoy cocktails and appetizers. Then it’s off to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and back to the Contemporary.

6. First stop, the Polynesian!

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has a tropical vibe to it that takes Guests away to the South Pacific. Enjoy drinks and appetizers inspired by the islands of the tropics. Savor the flavors and the opportunity to spend time with that special someone as you begin your culinary journey.

5. Next stop, the Grand Floridian!

After drinks and appetizers, board the monorail and be whisked away to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort—one teeming with Victorian elegance and charm. While at the Grand Floridian, you’ll first enjoy champagne, cheeses and charcuterie. Then you’ll be welcomed at the award-winning Citricos restaurant where you’ll enjoy the Chef’s main course.

4. Third stop, back to the Contemporary!

After the main course, it’s time to board the monorail again and head back to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This is perhaps the sweetest part of the evening. Enjoy an assortment of desserts, along with cordials and coffee as you sit out on a private patio reserved exclusively for Guests on the Highway in the Sky Dine Around.

3. Enjoy your happily ever after.

From the private patio at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, not only will you relax and enjoy sweet treats and coffee. You’ll also have a prime location and opportunity for viewing the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular over Cinderella Castle. What a way to end the journey around the highway in the sky!

2. Mingling is encouraged.

Whether you’re enjoying this experience by yourself or with a large group of friends and family, you’ll be afforded the opportunity to mingle with, and get to know, other Guests who are also enjoying the experience alongside you. Share a story, have some laughs—maybe even make a new friend along the way! Don’t be shy—some of the best friendships are born at Disney World.

1. Dine around, rain or shine.

It’s important to know that the Highway in the Sky Dine Around takes place, regardless of the weather. The experience will take place as planned, even if it’s raining or cold outside. Be sure to dress for the weather, keeping in mind that you’ll be outside briefly as you board and disembark from the monorail.
