1) This is one of the largest hotel self serve eating areas - the fountain soda cup is a good idea 2) very large dining area - 3) reasonable food quality, considering the buffet style Enjoy !!

We visited Boatwright's during our Disney vacation for the Christmas holidays. We were staying at Port Orleans - Riverside, so it was conveniently located to our room. Like many places at Disney, you'll want to consider making a reservation to ensure availability. Also, like many...More
