We’ve been missing several of our favorite table service restaurants at Disney World since it re-opened. Well, now we have exciting news! Check out which restaurant is opening here…

Which is your favorite EPCOT restaurant? We have several, but one of the absolute best table service restaurants shows a re-opening date this weekend on My Disney Experience.

Increased EPCOT Park Hours

We visited Disney World opening week and the theme parks were virtually empty. While we enjoyed the low crowds, it was also an eerie feeling knowing COVID-19 was the reason. However, when I visited on Labor Day weekend, crowds had increased significantly.

To address this increase in crowds, Disney is adding park hours. We recently reported increased hours in November and December.

My favorite time to casually stroll “around the world” is after dark. EPCOT has such a different feel with the pavilions lit up. Current EPCOT hours are 11:00am to 7:00pm which takes away walking around after sunset.

However, from September 25 to 27, guests can again stroll around after dark with park hours extended from 11:00am to 9:00pm. To see how other park hours have been extended this weekend, check our recent article here.

We love eating at the Food and Wine booths in EPCOT’s World Showcase. Check out the latest Food and Wine menus here.

According to Disney’s website, the following EPCOT table service restaurants are currently open:

New Restaurant Opening

If you take a look at the cuisines above, their is one distinct cuisine missing, French. We recently reported that the Executive Check at EPCOT’s France was retiring after many years of Disney service.

This left a gaping hole in EPCOT dining…until now!

We’re pleased to announce My Disney Experience shows Chefs de France is re-opening on September 25th! Reservations are not showing up yet on My Disney Experience, but check back often! They will reappear soon.
