We love Dole Whip for so many reasons — it’s tart-sweet tanginess…the refreshing way it says, “Hey! You’re on vacay!”…and the fact that you can get it on BOTH coasts! [Read more…]
OK, I usually really enjoy my meals at Yak and Yeti Restaurant. But this time? I had a blast! No joke; everything was so, so good. Can’t wait to tell you about it!
Yak and Yeti Restaurant
The colorful and beautifully themed restaurant, located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is a super hidden gem. This one just doesn’t seem to on the radar of many guests, and that’s a shame. Every time I’ve visited the exotic spot, I’ve had great food and service in beautiful surroundings.
But you know the DFB philosophy. We never rely on a place to stay the same, so we’re always revisiting even the best spots to confirm the quality is still there.
Since it had been a while since my last check-in, I decided it was time to pay a visit once more to Arjun and the good people of Anandapur for some of their warm hospitality.
If you’re on a pilgrimage en route from Africa to Mount Everest to conquer the mountain and the dreaded Yeti, you’ll surely see Yak and Yeti Restaurant. While its flat facade tends to blend in, the vibrant purple/periwinkle paint ensures that you’ll notice it.
And just in case you’re wondering who the heck Arjun is, he owns this house-turned-restaurant. At least according to Disney’s backstory. Once a wealthy merchant, Arjun has fallen on hard times, and now opens his home to travelers in hopes of making ends meet. The restaurant is filled with treasures that Arjun has gathered along his journeys. [Read more…]
HAPPY OCTOBER!!! Milder temps have returned to Walt Disney World where we’re checking out What’s New in all four parks, Disney Springs, and a few of our favorite Resorts. AND it’s still high time for Pumpkin Spice, Candy Corn, and All Things Autumn.
Sooo… what are YOU going to be for Halloween? [Read more…]
Happy 45th Anniversary, Walt Disney World!
And Happy Anniversary to Disney World Annual Passholders, who can take part in the celebration by enjoying some brand new discounts at select dining and merchandise locations around Disney World for the anniversary year! [Read more…]
But on Thursday, September 29th, we won’t be the only ones celebrating National Coffee Day. Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosks will be helping guests throughout Walt Disney World celebrate, too… with one dollar cups of coffee!!
That’s right! Grab a 16 ounce cup of hot coffee or a 24 ounce cup of iced coffee for a buck at any Joffrey’s Coffee location in Walt Disney World.
Here’s a look at just a few of the several Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosks around Disney World so you can know where to be on the lookout.
Find this one at the Transportation and Ticket Center while on your way to Magic Kingdom or Epcot.
The Joffrey’s kiosks at Hollywood Studios have some of the best theming, like this one located outside of the Tower of Terror.
Did you know that Royal Anandapur Tea Company in Animal Kingdom is a Joffrey’s spot?
And Epcot has several locations in the park in both Future World and World Showcase like the American Adventure kiosk.
(Not for a buck, though. )
So whether you’re sampling one of Joffrey’s specialty beverages for the Festival in Epcot, or looking for a dollar cup of Joe in or around the parks, September 29th is looking like the perfect day to stop by a Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk in Disney World!

We’re poppin’ in with a couple of updates for you regarding this summer’s Refillable Popcorn Bucket program in Disney World!
In case you missed the original buzz, Refillable Popcorn Buckets hit the scene in late June. Guests could purchase a souvenir Popcorn Bucket at select Popcorn Carts around Disney World for $10.00 and have it refilled at any Popcorn Cart on property (no matter where the original Bucket was purchased) for $1.50 for the remainder of the day.
The program was originally scheduled to run through September 1st. However, September 1st has come and gone… and the Refillable Popcorn Buckets are still up for grabs! At Magic Kingdom, they’ve even received a spooky little makeover in honor of the arrival of Halloween. [Read more…]
Sometimes, nothing but a nice cuppa will do.
And even when you’re on vacation (which is, of course, supposed to be all about relaxing), an escape into a soothing cup of tea can be a welcome change of pace.
And that’s true regardless of weather, don’t you think? After all, serious tea drinkers don’t mind raising a cup, even in Florida heat and humidity.
Are you looking to try something new or to celebrate the ritual of something familiar and comforting? Either way, we have suggestions for finding a really good cup of tea throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
Come with us as we share some of our favorites.
Joffrey’s Tea Traders Cafe
Just like coffee, tea is finding a larger and more sophisticated fan base everyday. But whether you’re a lifelong lover of tea, or you’re just learning your way around it, Joffrey’s Tea Traders Cafe at Disney Springs is a welcome stop on your list of places to explore this storied beverage.

We’re traveling to Animal Kingdom’s Asia to show off a couple new items on the Yak & Yeti (Anandapur) Local Food Cafes menu!
Yak and Yeti Counter Service
Not to be confused with the Yak & Yeti Table Service restaurant next door, Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes is a Quick Service option for adventurers on the go! Some items — though not the ones we’re checking out today — are even served in the most adorable Chinese food carry-out boxes.
As expected with Animal Kingdom, the restaurant is beautifully themed. This Indian market blends in perfectly next to the Maharajah Jungle Trek with advertisements for “local” companies, fruit stands, and a cool assortment of seating options.
The first thing you’ll likely see are the long lines, but as the arrow on the sign suggests, there’s plenty of room around the corner!
So don’t let this deter you… [Read more…]
We know, we know… Back-to-School time is fast approaching (and in some spots, it’s already arrived!). But the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer aren’t quite over just yet, so we’ve still got some summer celebrating to do!
And, hey, the coming of Fall isn’t so bad, anyway. Not when we’ve got our very favorite autumnal event coming to the first stop on our tour in a matter of weeks. That’s why we’re kicking things off at Epcot to see What’s New!
Food & Wine Festival Coming Soon!
The 2016 Epcot Food & Wine Festival will be here before we know it! Sure signs of its return are starting to appear around the park…
… as in, like, literal signs . Even the Miniature Train display in the Germany Pavilion has received its annual decorations!
