Edna Mode from The Incredibles — who, by the way, guests will soon be able to meet in both Disneyland Resort (starting June 15th) and Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (beginning Memorial Day Weekend) — started off a day of Pixar-riffic adventure, offering glimpses into all the fun — and FOOD — that is to come on Pixar Pier!

I was so excited to attend a Media Preview for Pixar Pier yesterday, and I can finally share this sneak peek — and even some sneak tastes — with you!

Review: Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort at Walt Disney World

When it comes to getting a great steak at Walt Disney World, there’s no shortage of intriguing options, including our current favorite steak on property: the Wagyu Beef at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs.

And when you visit a steakhouse in the World, you enter with certain expectations for mind-blowing excellence. Today we visit Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort. Will it live up to expectations?

Yachtsman Steakhouse has a solid reputation as a place to get a reliable steak with tasty sides (and awesome pull-apart onion bread…). Located in the subtly elegant Yacht Club, with its nostalgic lobby smell and clean, nautical lines, Yachtsman is a convenient out-of-park place to grab a meal, being proximal to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

We’ve enjoyed our visits here in the past, including the Porterhouse for Two and a delightful Boneless Ribeye. Would this visit be as successful as those in the past?

21 Myths About Walt Disney World Food DEBUNKED

The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. ;) Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!

Ready to Head to Disney World?

Ready to Head to Disney World?

1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

Whether you’re looking to save stomach space, hate wasting food, or want to save a little money, don’t neglect the kids’ menu!

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.

Mobile Order Locations Announced for Disneyland (PLUS Early Access NOW for Annual Passholders!)

Ordering and picking up your food at a Counter Service restaurant in Disney World has never been easier thanks to the introduction of Mobile Order: a process that allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line. So it was great news when it was revealed that Mobile Order will be coming to Disneyland, too, via the Disneyland app!

Now, even though breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, the truth is that — in Disney World — the breakfast options don’t always provide the most bang for your buck, especially if you’re considering using a Counter Service meal credit from the Disney Dining Plan. But there are some brilliant ways to use your snack credits for breakfast at Disney World! And even if you aren’t using the Disney Dining Plan, lots of these make terrific options even if you’re paying out of pocket. So join us for breakfast… in Disney World! [Read more…]
