I am a huge fan of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The theming is incredible, right down to the cracked pavement and crumbling walls that you find throughout each land. And there’s so much happening here right now. Pandora — The World of Avatar is set to open in just a few short weeks, and there’s always the Rivers of Light show.

Tips from the DFB Guide: Disney Character Meal Pros and Cons

We are back with some of our very best kept Disney Dining Secrets. And we want to share them with you!

2017 DFB Guide to WDW Dining Cover March 6 Planning what you’re going to eat and drink at Walt Disney World is no small undertaking. To begin, there are tons of choices. But what if you could make your meal a real multitasker? Say, you could enjoy some terrific eats, and get that shiny new autograph book filled with the names of all of your Disney favorites? Yep, we’re talking Character Meals.

You may think that the character meal experience isn’t for you. But we invite you to take a closer look at these special meals and see for yourself if a Character meal could be right for you.

And if you like what you see here, be sure to check out the brand new, just released 2017 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, Second Edition, where we talk character meals and LOTS more! And for a limited time, you can get it for 20% off with code SAVE2017 at checkout! Here we go!

Are Character Meals One-Size-Fits-All? Why Should I Book One?

You may think that if you’re an adult, single, or have older kids, there’s really no reason to engage in that Disney Rite of Passage, the Character Meal. But we think there’s a place for everyone at the character table, and here’s why.

Eating a big breakfast will fill you up -- and cost less than dining big later in the day!

It’s Cool In There, People. I’m not talking, like, rad. I mean literally, it’s cool. Like, air-conditioned. And in our opinion, waiting for characters with the a/c cranked up while noshing on delicious food WAY beats standing out in the hot sun any day. [Read more…]

Guest Review: “Eat This, Not That” in Disney World’s Pandora — The World of Avatar

For the past weeks we’ve been getting some amazing reports, reviews, and photos from dozens of DFB readers who have been to Pandora during cast previews, eaten multiple menu items, and sent us their thoughts!

While we here at DFB haven’t been to Pandora, yet, we’ve compiled the reviews of our readers into an Eat This Not That guide for the World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom that I hope will help out those of us who are headed to Pandora later this month! We always love when the DFB community can help each other out, and we think this is a great example of one of those times!

For those who aren’t sure what we’re talking about, Pandora — The World of Avatar, is a new land opening later this month in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Floating mountains in Pandora!

Let’s take a look! And stay tuned at the bottom of this post for our Eat This, Not That Recommendation List!
