    Quick Question about 1900 Park Fare

    Hello everyone! I'm eating for the first time at 1900 Park Fare on Sunday for the character dinner (which I am super excited about!) and I'm wondering if fancier dress is expected? I know that it is in the Grand Floridian, and last time I visited there, everything was higher class and higher expectations. I am going to the parks on Sunday, and I was originally planning jeans and a nicer sweater...would this be okay?

    Also, any tips on what to eat for sure there? I've seen the menu on allearsnet, but I'd like some input from fellow DWT'ers!

    Thanks everyone!

    I am a picky eater, so I won't give you any food recommendations.
    I will tell you that I had on capris (jean) and a golf shirt and I was fine.
    Walking through the lobby I felt underdressed, but not at all once I was at dinner.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    Okay, good good. We can't all be dressed to the nines in Florida weather (Which, despite it being Dec. it will stilll reach a high of 80 on Sunday, yikes.)

    We always go right from the parks and always are wearing shorts and a tshirts and it isn't a problem at all. The only place on WDW property that you are expected to be dressed is at Victoria & Alberts. We took my SIL and her family for their first visit to 1900 Park Fare for dinner this past June and it ended up being their favorite meal of the entire trip. It's a must do for us each and every trip! Enjoy!

    1900 Park Fare is always served buffet style. Mary, Alice and the Mad Hatter are now there for breakfast. Dinner is Cinderella, Prince Charming, Perla, Suzy and the Fairy Godmother.

    1900 Park Faire has no dress code beyond the standard "No shirt, no shoes, no dice" policy.

    In fact, there's only a handful of restaurants at WDW that have any dress code beyond that (3 of them are at the Grand Floridian).

    Citrico's, Narcoossee's, Jiko, The Flying Fish Cafe, Artist Point, The Yachtsman Steakhouse and the California Grill have the following dress code (enforcement is spotty):

    Dress Attire is Business Casual
    Men: Dress slacks, jeans, trousers, or dress shorts, short or long-sleeved shirt with a collar required. Jackets are optional.
    Ladies: Jeans, skirts, or dress shorts with blouse or sweater, or a dress required.
    Not permitted in dining room: tank tops, swimming suits or swim suit cover ups, t-shirts, hats for gentleman, cut offs, or torn clothing of any kind.
    Victoria & Albert's has the following code:

    Dinner jacket is required for gentlemen (tie optional) and dress or pants ensemble for ladies.
    In addition, Shula's has a "business casual" dress code, though its not posted on the WDW site. Its basically the same code as the first description above, but again, enforcement is spotty. For example, it says no t-shirts, yet I've never been in one of those restaurants when there weren't at least a few people wearing t-shirts. For the most part, they're just trying to keep people from showing up in beachwear or other shabby clothing.

    Bistro de Paris will also usually tell you "no tank tops" when you make your ADR. Not sure if that's enforced.

    I am going to the parks on Sunday, and I was originally planning jeans and a nicer sweater...would this be okay?
    So, yes, this would be perfectly acceptable in any WDW restaurant except V&A.

    I've eaten at Narcoossee's, Artists Point, Yachtsman and Shula's all in basic shorts and tshirt coming straight from the parks with nothing at all ever said. I truly believe that V&A's is the only restaurant on WDW that really has a "dress code".
