DFB Video: What I Wish I’d Known BEFORE I Went to Disney World

Happy Weekend! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking on a huge (and helpful) subject: What I Wish I’d Known BEFORE I Went to Disney World!

I'm Going to Disney World!

You’re Going to Disney World!

No matter whether you’re planning your first trip to Disney World or your twentieth, there are always a TON of factors to consider when it comes to planning your vacation. In fact, Disney World vacation planning practically has its own language. (Do the terms “ADR” or “FastPass+” mean anything to you?). While a lot of these tips will be especially helpful for first-time visitors, even repeat guests can always gather more information when it comes to Disney vacation planning to make your next experience even more magical. So please join us while we discuss all sorts of helpful hints for your next trip to Disney World! [Read more…]

News! New Steak (With NO Mac and Cheese) Debuts at Mama Melrose in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Update: As of January 2018, mac and cheese has returned! See our note at the end of this post! 

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been a guest go-to for years, and the Strip Steak with Mac and Cheese has — by far — the most fans (yours truly included).

Which is why it pains us to report that the steak has changed. And the Mac and Cheese? It’s disappeared, and has been replaced with… a bed of potatoes. (Whaaaat?!) The new dish is a Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Fingerling Potatoes. [Read more…]

DFB Video: All the Mac and Cheese in Walt Disney World!

Happy Monday! We’re back this week with another DFB Video, and today we’re digging into one of my favorite dishes: Macaroni and Cheese!

Mac and Cheese at The Boathouse

Wait… did I say “one”? Scratch that. Because not only are we checking out several of our favorite versions of Disney Mac and Cheese… we’ll also tell you how you can get a list of EACH and EVERY  Mac and Cheese in Disney World! Basically, if I see Mac and Cheese on any Disney World menu, I order it so I can let you know where you can find your ideal dish. Does Mac and Cheese topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, AND onion rings appeal to you? How about shrimp-topped mac and cheese? Or are you more of a purist? No matter what, you’re bound to find at least one version (and probably more) that you’ll need to try on your next Disney World trip!
