Starting today, Disney is taking reservations for all three meals at the Garden Grill, with the breakfast and lunch seatings beginning November 8. Reservations will be available via +1-407-WDW-DINE or Disney's website. From today's press release:
The new Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Breakfast Harvest Feast will have all the fixin’s served in an all-you-care-to-enjoy family style. What’s on the menu? Look for breakfast favorites like biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, Mickey waffles, and their signature item, Chip’s Sticky Bun Bake.At lunch, look for your all-you-care-to-enjoy favorites from the dinner menu, like “Living with the Land” Harvest-inspired Farmer’s Salad (which utilizes greens from the attraction), char-grilled sliced filet of beef, roasted all-natural sliced turkey breast with freshly-harvested vegetables and scrumptious side dishes.
The change at the Garden Grill represents Disney World's latest move to extend dining hours at more of its popular restaurants. When you think about it, the move is consistent with the recent MyMagic+-inspired changes at the resort. If Disney's original Fastpass was about moving guests out of the queues, Fastpass+ was about moving them back in. Disney recognized that it had significant unused capacity at its Florida parks, and devised MyMagic+ in part as a way to better distribute guests throughout the park, leading them to book reservations at a wider range of attractions and restaurants, while limiting the number of daily reservations in attempt to move "power users" of the old Fastpass system into more standby queues.
Disney defeats this purpose, however, if it leaves dining rooms empty while it tries to fill attraction queues. That's why Be Our Guest has gone to three-meal operation and now Garden Grill has followed. Eventually, one should expect more popular Walt Disney World restaurants to do the same.
