Hey, guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of discussing the BEST RIDES in every Disney World park!
Wait… you thought all we did was EAT in the parks ? Heck no, we take on the rides, too (in between Advance Dining Reservations, that is)! Now, we all have sentimental favorites when it comes to park attractions, but we want to be sure to fill you in on some definite must-rides (including those that are so popular you need to book your FastPass+ for them, like, yesterday). We’ll even chat about some rides that we’re already excited about… even though they haven’t opened yet! [Read more…]
You’re invited to a Party for the Planet at Animal Kingdom starting April 22nd!
This year’s Party will kick off as it has in the past: it will start on April 22nd, which is both Earth Day and Animal Kingdom’s anniversary. But since 2018 marks 20 YEARS of magic at Animal Kingdom, the Party for the Planet will be BIGGER than ever before. First, there will be a special 15-minute welcome celebration in front of the Tree of Life on April 22nd with music, dancing, and Disney pals!
The event will also feature unique PhotoPass opportunities, a special limited-time Wilderness Explorers badge location, backstage experiences at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, 20th Anniversary merchandise, and more… including Party for the Planet Special Edition Dishes! These limited time offerings will include Daily Specials at food and beverage locations around the park, and we can’t wait to share more information with you here once it is released.
Flame Tree Barbecue in the Discovery Island area of Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom has long been a favorite quick service spot for DFB and our readers, viewers, and followers.
Flame Tree Barbecue
The fairly central location — just between Dinoland and the big tree — makes it convenient to most lands in this sprawling park. There’s typically lots of available seating (albeit some of it uncovered). And the food is consistently satisfying and delicious. (Plus the massive portions give us some options with regard to sharing and maximizing Disney Dining Plan credits!)
And there are so many fun details in the decor here, with brightly colored, playful animal carvings providing interest (as well as identifying different seating areas). And there’s always plenty of real wildlife around to entertain the kiddos during the meal — there are some very hungry birds around.
But birds and squirrels aside, let’s see what Flame Tree Barbecue is cooking up!
