Check out all of the conveniently located places you can get dinner or a quick bite. Just within the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort if you want some Italian for dinner, try Il Mulino, located in the Swan, or if you want something else, try Shula’s Steak House (in the Dolphin), Kimonos (Japanese cuisine; in the Swan), or Todd English’s Bluezoo (seafood; in the Dolphin), but be sure to make your reservations now to avoid a long wait as they can all be very popular. There are also 7 more options for more casual or quicker bites so you never have to go very far to find something, and you will be able to purchase lunch on the Exhibit Hall floor.
Registered attendees can buy discounted tickets to Walt Disney World Theme Parks. But hurry: the discount ends Friday, March 24, 2017, at 9 pm.
