DFB Video: Pros and Cons of Disney World Transportation

Happy Thursday! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re discussing the pros and cons of Disney World transportation.

Catch that Monorail!

Catch that Monorail!

There is much more to Disney World than four theme parks. It’s a huge property with several Resorts, a shopping and dining district (that’s Disney Springs), two water parks, and more. So something every guest needs to consider is how to get around all of it! And this is an especially big topic these days in light of the recent addition of parking fees for guests staying at Disney World resorts. We’re discussing that topic and also how to get around if you choose to rely on Disney transportation at some point (or for all) of your vacation. [Read more…]

Guess Which Classic Disney Drink Is Now Available SPIKED?!?

You’ll be getting JUNGLE JUICE, spiked with Meyer’s Dark Rum: it’s the new Ngumu Jungle Juice!

Now, you may know Jungle Juice — served around Animal Kingdom and also Animal Kingdom Lodge in spots like Boma — by one or more of its other names. It’s know as Moonshine for breakfast at Trail’s End, and Liliko’i Juice at ‘Ohana’s Best Friend’s Breakfast and Kona Cafe. Of course, it’s also known as POG Juice at those locations, which stand for the ingredients used in the drink no matter the name: Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava juices! [Read more…]

What Specialty Drinks are Included on the Disney Dining Plan?

Editor’s Note: We’ll be updating this post regularly as we learn more about how specialty, non-alcoholic drinks are being classified at Walt Disney World. If you’ve had experience with the plan, please comment below so we can add it to the post! Thanks, Disney food friends! 

When the 2018 Disney Dining Plan details were released last June, many guests were excited to discover that alcoholic drinks would be included. For those who like to try adult beverages at Walt Disney World, this was an immediate way to bump up the value of the Disney Dining Plan!

But what about those guests who choose not to drink alcohol or who are under 21 years old (but still required to pay the adult price)? How can they maximize the 2018 Disney Dining Plan by imbibing in “specialty beverages” promised by the new DDP?

Disney World’s Poutine Obsession: 15 Ways To Get Your French Fry Fix

So…a poutine cloud apparently burst over Orlando and now you can get varieties of this relatively obscure French Canadian pub grub delicacy pretty much everywhere in Disney World. There’s even a dining spot completely dedicated to poutine.

The dish traditionally consists of French fries covered in cheese curds and brown gravy, and Canadians will cheerfully tell you that NONE of the dishes below qualify. Yet they’re called Poutine on the menu, and since we love french fries with stuff piled on top of them, we’re happy to tally them up for you!

Oh, and here’s some real Canadian poutine for reference.
