8 Things You’ll Love About Storybook Dining at Artist Point in Walt Disney World

Credit: Disney Tips

We Snow White fans can’t get enough of the “fairest of them all” princess so when we found out that we could have dinner with her at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, we just had to learn more! And what we found out is as exciting as it is impressive! We think you’ll be impressed too! Here are 8 things we just know you’re going to love about Storybook Dining at Artist Point!


8. It’s nestled inside Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

Although there aren’t too many things as exciting as enjoying a meal with Snow White deep in the forest, we love that Artist Point is located at Disney’s beautiful, enormous Wilderness Lodge. If you’ve never visited, you’re in for a treat just by arriving for dinner. You’ll love the rustic charm and wooden beauty of this sprawling Disney World Resort hotel! Be sure to have your camera ready and make some time to explore the resort before or after dinner.

7. Get lost in the forest during dinner.

The Storybook Dining experience at Artist Point with Snow White doesn’t stop at just the princess, the Dwarfs and the creative menu—not at all! You’ll love the ambience—think of it as forest ambience. The dining room has been decorated to make Guests feel as if they’ve truly stepped into a world of magic inside the Enchanted Forest!

6. Meet Snow White and the 2 Dwarfs (and the Evil Queen!)

As if it weren’t exciting enough to be hobnobbing with Snow White during dinner, this fantastic character dining experience also allows Guests to meet two of the Seven Dwarfs—Dopey and Grumpy. (Apparently the other five Dwarfs are working doubles in the mines lately.) The characters visit with Guests at their tables during dinner, sign autographs and even pose for photos with adoring fans! Be careful on your way out—the Evil Queen can be seen at Artist Point after dinner. Whatever you do, don’t accept any apples from her—no matter how shiny!


5. Appetizers to share!

Hungry? The appetizer choices are just as magical as the Enchanted Forest! Choose one to share with the table. Choices include a Winter Squash Bisque, Hunter’s Pie or the Wicked Shrimp Cocktail (hold the wicked)! Which one will you have served at your table?

4. Delicious entrees

Enjoying dinner in the Enchanted Forest means an amazing offering of magical “Core of the Story” entrees—each with a “Snow White” twist! Choose from Cottage Beef Stew, the Brothers Grimm Roasted Chicken, Magic Mirror Veal Shank, Bashful’s Butter-poached Kingklip and more.

3. Desserts – enough to share (but you might not want to!)

Shared desserts are served at the table after your meal. Anyone up for Gooseberry Pie or a Poison Apple? (Don’t worry—we’re talking a dark chocolate-apple mousse with a sour center!)

2. A delightfully special menu for the kids

Though the adult menu is phenomenal, Snow White has made sure that the kids feel really special! That’s why there’s a menu just for them! It includes choices like a wicked shrimp cocktail or the Hunter’s Terrine as appetizers. There’s also Royal Prime Rib Roast and Prince and Princess Pasta. For dessert, the kids can choose from the Miner’s Treasure—a sponge cake with chocolate gems and berry panna cotta, Fairy Tale Gooseberry Pie (Snow White’s specialty!), a Poison Apple—hold the poison—and the Hunter’s Gift to the Queen, which is maple popcorn with a ganache heart.

1. It books up quickly!

Well, this is certainly not something to love about Storybook Dining at Artist Point, especially since anyone would jump at the chance to dine with Snow White, Dopey and Grumpy. But we do love the fact that we can book dining reservations 180 days in advance via the My Disney Experience app or by calling (407) WDW-DINE. (Hint, hint.)
