DFB Guides

The first DFB Guide was created because I wanted to help other Disney guests make sure they visit the restaurants that are going to be the best fit for their families.

Disney Holiday Preview: Celebrating Christmas Throughout the World at Epcot

I love the riches of tradition that take place throughout Epcot during Holidays Around the World.

Christmas Comes to World Showcase

Christmas Comes to World Showcase

And one of my favorite holiday rituals is learning about how others celebrate this important time of the year.

We all know about Santa in the United States and other countries, Père Noël  in France, and Father Christmas in the UK. Today, I thought we could take a look at some of the other Christmas traditions celebrated in the lands of World Showcase. And of course, we’ll be snacking along the way as well. :-)

Review: Black Forest Milkshake at Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner

Min and Bill’s has done it again!

We are back at Hollywood Studios’ very own Dockside Diner for this season’s specialty milkshake. You may recall a few of the milkshake gems that have made the rounds at this unassuming spot, like the scrumptious Caramel Apple, the creative Cinnamon Sweet Churro, and the festive Red Velvet Peppermint Shake in honor of the holidays.

Nowadays we can’t walk into Hollywood Studios without stopping by Min and Bill’s to check out the latest concoction, because they’ve made the hunt pretty fun by changing the seasonal shake offering on a fairly frequent basis.

Things had changed up yet again on our most recent trip with the Black Forest Milkshake.

So, who’s ready to do some seasonal shake sipping with me?


Min and Bill’s Diner is located inside the “S.S. Down the Hatch” on Echo Lake in Hollywood Studios.

All seating is outdoors, but they do have a nice amount of tables and umbrellas set up right in front.

Review: Fried Green Tomato Sandwich at Fairfax Fare in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Welcome back to Fairfax Fare in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Fairfax Fare is part of Sunset Ranch Market: a string of Counter Service spots on Sunset Boulevard, which also includes Anaheim Produce, Hollywood Scoops, Catalina Eddie’s, and Rosie’s All-American Cafe.

Altogether, they serve just about the full array of typical Counter Service favorites, from pizza and burgers to ice cream and grab-and-go snacks.

Fairfax Fare in particular is known for “Smoked Specialties” such as spareribs and chicken dishes. In fact, it’s quite the carnivore’s destination, when you think about it. So it was with definite curiosity that we tried a more recent addition to the menu, which just so happens to be a vegetarian entree: the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich.


Fairfax Fare, with its simple setting and ordering windows blends right in with the other Sunset Ranch Market eateries along Sunset Boulevard.

Of course, even though it blends in with the typical scene, it does stand out a bit more at the moment due to its next door neighbors — Catalina Eddie’s and Rosie’s All-American Cafe — currently undergoing refurbishments. (They’re anticipated to reopen on November 20th). [Read more…]

The resort is currently celebrating all things Star Wars, and along with that celebration comes the grand opening of the Galactic Grill.  Last week I was invited to the restaurant’s first service to try out some of the new offerings.
