Dining in the Disney Parks is a memorable experience, to say the least. With quick-service restaurants, snack kiosks, table-service restaurants, character dining, dessert packages, fine dining, and everything in between – making a decision on where to dine can be overwhelming. Alas, someone has developed the solution that takes dining in the Disney Parks to a whole new level.

Have you ever found yourself eating/drinking around the World Showcase at EPCOT with nowhere to put drinks and food down? Or how about needing a place to put down all those tasty goodies at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Magic Kingdom restaurants are almost always full to capacity. Plus, we tend to find ourselves eating on the move at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Well, now, the restaurant goes right along with you! All you need is one of Disney’s beloved trash cans. Behold… the trash can tablecloth!
