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…]

Review: Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

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.

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!
