When we arrived at our reservation time we had to wait maybe 20-30 minutes. There were very few benches in the front for people waiting, and there were lots of groups waiting, all down the entry hallway. This was the most negative aspect of the...More

As soon as you walk in you can not take your eyes off the tank. The staff follows up the beauty of the tank with their knowledge of the fish, feeding, Disney's conservation contributions, etc. One waiter (maybe Josh) was a fish genius. He was...More

We've only eaten here twice because it's very expensive and quite difficult to get reservations for, but it's well worth it to experience it at least once. Maybe for a special occasion. The second time we were there, my husband and I went for our...More

So please know we're not foodies. My kids try all their new food when we go to Disney because I've already paid for it with the meal plan and that's somehow easier then shelling out money to have them not eat it. For some reason...More

We were able to snag a last minute reservation here for NYE. We've eaten here before, but it was about 10 years ago. Love the atmosphere, but we were seated at the farthest tables from the aquarium, so didn't get to see many fish. The...More
