As you can see, there are plenty of options for outdoor dining at Disney World in the theme parks and at Disney Springs! One way that we liked to enjoy outdoor dining at Disney World on our recent trip was just make dining reservations at Disney Springs for the evenings to end the day and this worked well to align with our comfort level and the reduced park hours we experienced. You can keep track of current park hours for your visit on the Disney World website.
