Of all of our favorite things to do in Orlando this section will cover eating out and our favorite is eating out restaurant is at Disney's Artist Point Restaurant at Disney Wilderness Lodge.
The Pacific Northwest is my heritage (and Alaska) and Artist Point serves specialties from the Pacific Northwest where the focus is on seafood, sirloins and game.
Inspiration is drawn from the sprawling dining rooms found in the national park lodges across the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, Washington State, and Oregon.
The award winning wine list at Artist Point contains selections from Washington State, Oregon, and the Greater Pacific Northwest wineries. Available by the glass or bottle.
Elegant Artist Point offers a warm, relaxed atmosphere where the beautiful murals and paintings capture the spirit and romance of the American frontier.
Ornate iron lanterns are suspended from tremendous timber columns.
Disney's web site says that the average bill per person is $36.00 to $59.99, however the last time my daughter and I was there the bill for the two of us was over $130.00, and in my opinion, well worth it!
I got the kitchen's signature dish, cedar plank-roasted salmon. The salmon melts in my mouth!

April and early May is the time to make your reservations for this "fresh" salmon! When your are looking for things to do in Orlando... ...Be sure to ask at the time that you make reservations!
