Story Book Dining at Artist Point - Disney World Character Dining

Story Book Dining at Artist Point – Reopening December 16 at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has long been a Disney World fan favorite for resort dining. Story Book Dining at Artist Point is a new Character Dining experience inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

From Disney Parks Blog:

“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 Nature are both returning as well as the decadent “Poison” Apple dessert with dark chocolate-apple mousse. Delish!”
