DFB Video Review: The NEW Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Today, we’re visiting Disney’s newest restaurant in our latest DFB Video!

Geyser Point Bar and Grill opened Monday at Wilderness Lodge in Walt Disney World, and we were there on opening day to give you a first look!

Wilderness Lodge Geyser Point Bar and Grill 2

Geyser Point opened with a relatively new hybrid concept: half bar and lounge, half counter service restaurant. This is a style Disney has been playing with for a while, and we kind of like it? We think? We’ll let you know in a year or so!

News: Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk Opening Soon in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland

You can spot a Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk just about anywhere in Disney World these days… which is VERY good news for coffee and tea lovers!

From Animal Kingdom’s Royal Anandapur Tea Company to spots at Epcot featuring Specialty Beverages for the park’s many and varying Festivals and beyond, it seems you’re never too far from a cup of Joffrey’s coffee, tea, or Seasonal Espresso Drink.

In fact, just about the only place without a Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk is Magic Kingdom. Sure, you can find kiosks nearby at both the Ticket and Transportation Center and the Contemporary Resort, but not at Disney World’s original park. [Read more…]

Review: Great (And Not So Great) Treats At Epcot’s Karamell-Küche!

Lately there has been no shortage of incredible food at Walt Disney World’s Epcot.

But even with all the stellar food at the International Festival of the Arts, I still craved some of my old favorites from everyone’s go-to caramel spot: Karamell-Küche.

Karamell-Küche has become a perennial favorite since its debut in 2010. And why not? It’s a charming stop in World Showcase’s Germany pavilion, and it serves some of the most crave-able sweets in the World. We love the Caramel Corn (and we love watching it be made), but who can resist their unassuming-but-oh-so-amazing Caramel Apple Cookie? We can’t!

And the Caramel Bacon Square is just crazy enough to work! Plus I can always rely on the Sea Salt Chocolate-Covered Caramel to satisfy my sweet/salty tooth (it’s been my on my must-eat list for, like, seven years, y’all!). Just about anything in their shiny glass display cases is delicious. (Well…maybe not the Caramel-Topped Chocolate Brownie. Too dry. Too boring. Too much else to capture my taste buds and attention.)

The menu is pretty self-explanatory, and since the goodies are all on display, you can study your options before making a selection.

And there are so, so many things from which to choose! You will have trouble making a decision, we promise. [Read more…]

DFB Video: How to Score a Seat at the NEW “Rivers of Light” Show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

This past weekend, we had our very first chance to view the newest Disney nighttime spectacular — Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

And lemme tell ya — it’s spectacular, and it’s totally worth the wait! We loved it SO much that we just had to make it the subject of our latest DFB Video!

Because we had the chance to see the show first hand, we want to share some images with you. But we also want to share how you can see the show yourself without standing in the anticipated long lines that are sure to greet its opening this weekend!

Rivers of Light Has Finally Arrived at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

The new show was supposed to debut in 2016, but Disney pushed its launch back nearly a full year. That means that it will debut just months — really just weeks — before we see the opening of Pandora — The World of Avatar on May 27. [Read more…]
