Have you ever wanted to take part in a progressive dinner at the Walt Disney World monorail resort restaurants? With the brand new dining adventure called Highway in the Sky Dine Around, you’ll be able to do just that.

Guests will be able to enjoy a five-course meal that will include cocktails, appetizers, dinner and dessert and will feature stops at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Plus Guests will receive a VIP guide and a private viewing of Wishes.

The event begins at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where you’ll check in at The Wave… of American Flavors where you’ll enjoy a specialty cocktail. From there, you’ll head to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort where you’ll enjoy a variety of island-inspired beverages and appetizers.

Your second stop will be at Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Here, you’ll enjoy the Chef’s main course selection. After dinner, the group will gather in the lobby to sip champagne and savor a selection of artisanal cheeses.

Finally, you’ll board the monorail to return to Disney’s Contemporary Resort where you will head to a private patio to enjoy an assortment of desserts, cordials and coffee. From this location, you’ll be able to watch Wishes to end the enchanting evening.

  • Most of the stuff they have introduced lately doesn’t interest me. This however is very interesting and I’d like to try it out sometime. It sounds like an expensive but fantastic date night experience.

  • Some guests have enjoyed personal variations of this dine-around for years, sans the special fireworks viewing area, of corrse. I prefer the relaxed pace of such a moveable feast with a small group of friends.

  • Very clever of them to take something that loads of people already do on their own (with varying levels of success), and package it into a polished, purchasable experience. $150 is a big number, but not unreasonable compared to what it would cost you to visit and buy all of these items a la carte.

    • So, do they dare package Drink Around the World as the Around the World Showcase Cele-Bever-ation? Will corporate image stretch that far? 😉

      • That was actually my first thought too. I could absolutely see them offering a World Showcase boozy tasting tour, hopping between reserved spots/seating in the lounges (Tutto Gusto, Cava del Tequila, etc) around the world.

  • The price tag isn’t too bad; I would consider springing for this, but only if they complete a thorough refurb of the monorail first. The way those trains are smelling these days, I don’t want to get on them between meal courses.

  • Yay! Another alcohol-laden gastronomical adventure that we can’t enjoy. Although we tour and eat at the monorail resorts most trips anyway, just drinking water, and I provide the Disney trivia to my wife and son, ignoring their eye rolls. 🙂

  • Now, if they had a ‘ride up front’ and eat a meal thing, sign me up.
    Or even just drinks and appetizers on the trains between courses before you go to the sit down place.

  • Any one know how to get tickets? Need them for December 17 or 20. Table of 4 and a table for 2
