Walt Disney World has been open for more than a year after a months-long pandemic closure, but the Resort is still not operating at the same capacity it was before the closure. Many hotels do not have all of their rooms available, Park capacity is not at one hundred percent (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), and there are a handful of restaurants that have yet to open their doors to Guests.
In some exciting news, Disney has announced that a popular character dining location will be reopening in just a couple of weeks! Storybook Dining at Artist Point With Snow White will be returning to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge beginning December 16, with reservations opening on December 2.
Disney Parks Blog shared more information on the highly-anticipated opening:
Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho – it’s off to dinner we go! Yes, Story Book Dining at Artist Point, inspired by the Disney film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” will reopen Dec. 16 at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Reservations can be made beginning Dec. 2.
As part of our new Character Dining experience, all guests will see Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and The Queen stroll through the Enchanted Forest while enjoying a bountiful prix fixe dinner with the choice of individually plated entrées and shared starters and desserts. Start your storybook adventure with a wickedly refreshing cocktail like the Enchanted Apple with a hint of sour apple. I am happy to report the Royal Prime Rib Roast and the vegetarian A Stroll Through Natureare both returning as well as the decadent “Poison” Apple dessert with dark chocolate-apple mousse. Delish!

Quench your thirst with creative and fun cocktails (and mocktails) and a variety of beers in bottles and on draft. A wine list with a focus on the most highly rated wines from Oregon and Washington State rounds out the beverage menu.

It is important to note that character dining is still modified at this point. Characters will not be coming up to Guests and interacting with them as they have done in the past. Character interactions will be done from a socially safe distance, but that doesn’t mean that it will be any less magical!
