Storybook Dining At Artist Point Restaurant Review

Storybook Dining At Artist Point is a unique place to enjoy dinner and meet Snow White and two of the Seven Dwarfs just a few minutes outside the Magic Kingdom at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

Disney’s Storybook Dining with Snow White

With a prix fixe menu which is a meal with several courses but a fixed price, this is one of our favorite restaurant experiences at Walt Disney World. The food is great and the higher price is justifiable because you can meet four characters for pictures and autographs.

Snow White, Grumpy, and Dopey visit guests at their tables while they dine. The Evil Queen or Wicked Queen has a station with her spell book as the back drop where she will pose for photographs with guests as they leave.

The highlight of my dinner was making a couple wise cracks to the Queen about her stare and the price mixed with the word “mother-in-law”. She was SO GOOD! Her remarks were always true to her character and oh so funny!

There are announcements and the “Silly Song” where Snow White and the dwarves come out and dance along to a song. Guests clap along to the dance party and get even more swept away in the fun.

We ate at Disney’s Storybook Dining with Snow White in the Wilderness Lodge on the day we arrived, but did not go to a park. Be sure to have your Photopass activated 3 days ahead of time so that the Disney photographs with the Queen will be included in your app.

For some reasons I thought all seven dwarfs would be visiting guests, but Grumpy and Dopey are the only two there.

Is Storybook Dining Worth It?

Our total bill was $210 for two adults and one kid with a tip. Storybook Dining at Artist Point is expensive, but you pay for the experience and character interaction as well as the dinner.

The food is not worth it alone, but the singing, dancing, chance to personally interact with characters creates a very special experience.

If you are on a strict budget I would recommend skipping this meal. Our family looks at this as an extra to save up for or give as a special gift. This is how I personally justify the expense and work it into our family budget.

Does Storybook Dining Include A Drink?

A fountain drink is included in the prix fixe menu, or multiple courses for one price.

Special drinks like a 50th anniversary lemonade, alcohol, mixed drinks and souvenir cups are always extra whether you dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table or Be Our Guest Restaurant.

Is The Food Good?

We are fairly conservative eaters that live in the midwest, but are open to trying new menu items and we love the meal at storybook dining!

We’ve seen a lot of complaints on Facebook about the food being weird, but that is not an experience that we had. The kids meals are typical food that is very good.

There are recognizable main dishes like Prime Rib served on mashed potatoes that have a little more kick than our classic potatoes. We enjoyed everything that we tasted, including the unique appetizers!

The character interaction is great and a big part of the price spent of this meal experience.

What Park is Closest to Storybook Dining?

Storybook Dining is in the Wilderness Lodge which is closest to the Magic Kingdom theme park and just a ferry ride across the Seven Seas Lagoon.

From Disney Springs take a bus to the Wilderness Lodge.

If on other Disney property take a bus or the monorail to the Magic Kingdom and then switch buses or grab the boat to the Wilderness Lodge.

We did take an Uber from Port Orleans Riverside this trip because it takes about ten minutes from most places at Disney when you go directly. The busing system include waiting, transferring and walking take more precious time that you can spend in the pool or at a park!

After our meal we called and Uber and went to the Winter Summerland Putt-Putt which was another fun experience!

Can Girls Dress Up Like Snow White?

Yes! Lots of little girls were dressed in Snow White costumes. Our daughter had one from trick or treat a few years back that still fit so she wore it.

I would not recommend purchasing a dress just for the sake of this meal, but that is a personal decision.

Not everyone is dressed up. How you dress does not affect how Snow White and the cast interact with and speak to you.

Are Reservations Hard to Get?

Guests staying on-site at a Disney resort may make reservations at 7 a.m. 60 days prior to your first day at the WDW resorts.

Reservations are easiest to make in the My Disney app or on the website.

This restaurant only has characters for dinner and a park ticket is not required so reservations can be difficult to get.

If you can’t find availability don’t give up! Keep checking weekly or daily. Also be sure to check several times the week of your trip, especially the last few days before you want to dine as people often cancel reservations last minute.

Walking up to get a reservation is very risky and is unlikely to work during busy times. But there is a chance you will be seated.

Does The Disney Credit Card Discount Work?

No – the 10% off your restaurant bill discount with a Disney credit card does not work at Storybook Dining at Artist Point.

Snow White is the first Disney princess movie and the Disneyland Hotel was the first Disney lodging in Anaheim.

Going on a 3-Day Disney Cruise after a quick stop at WDW and doing the Castaway Cay 5K is so much fun!

An enjoyable Disney experience that is outside of a recognizable movie is our Review of the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue.

We enjoy trying out the different hotels like Pop Century compared to the All-Stars and the Caribbean Beach Resort.
