I will be arriving in Orlando on new years day, the evening before my travel companion is scheduled to arrive and I would like to eat out some place on Disney property that is not counter service hamburgers, chicken fingers or pizza. I’m looking for a restaurant on disney property that has good food and that I won’t feel awkward dining in alone. Any good recommendations?
What Disney restaurant should I go to for a solo dining experience?

I would not feel awkward dining alone in any of the restaurants at Disney World. You will be surprised how fast you can make Friends and how the caste members will treat you.
So where would I eat if I were alone at Disney? I think I would go for a resort restaurant first, less crowded, often better food than many of the restaurants in the parks. Jiko in the Animal Kingdom lodge might be a good choice. It has a unique menu and a very welcome feel. You may also enjoy Chef Mickey’s, in the Contemporary. The character meals can be really fun, even for adults, and the characters will definitely give you more attention for being alone. Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom is a good second choice for a character dinner. You might also consider a dinner show like the Hoop Dee Doo Review at the Wilderness Camp Grounds or the Luau at the Polynesian Resort.
What ever you do, just have fun. Disney is a great place to be alone, because you never really are.
