Spice Road Table opens officially, with no reservations and no Disney Dining Plan

Published: January 20, 2014 at 11:38 AM

After a few weeks in soft opening, Walt Disney World declared Spice Road Table officially open. Here's the menu, which features "small plates" (i.e. tapas), and a variety of drinks.

But what might be most interesting about this new restaurant is that it isn't accepting reservations, and isn't accepting the Disney Dining Plan. Perhaps this is simply an effort to keep the crowds away from a new restaurant, and Disney will begin accepting DDP and maybe reservations, too, at some point in the future. But for now, Disney World visitors have another opportunity to experience "old school" Disney food service -- first-come, first-served sit-down dining where you pay with cash or credit card, and not plan points.

Have you been to Spice Road Table yet? Does it look interesting to you? What do you think about Disney designating certain restaurants as reservation- DDP-free?

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

The menu certainly looks delicious. I think Disney have made the right decision not including it on the DDP, this way every one gets a fair chance of eating here rather than it being booked out for the duration of your stay. I think Be Our Guest would have contributed to this decision.
