Participating restaurants include the Biergarten (Germany Pavilion); Coral Reef Restaurant (Living Seas); Garden Grill (Land Pavilion); and Le Cellier (Canada Pavilion).

Same day dining packages will be available at Regal Eagle Smokehouse ($34.00, American Adventure) and Spice Road Table ($44.00, Morocco Pavilion) for a limited number of concert passes.
