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…]

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

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!

Review: The Sausage and Peppers Hoagie at Epcot’s Electric Umbrella Might Surprise You

It’s pretty well established that Epcot is an exemplary place to get a meal.

Whether you’re queuing up at Sunshine Seasons for fresh and tasty quick service, making an ADR at Via Napoli, or using up some table service credits at Le Cellier, there are lots of quality eats to be found.

But a poll of Epcot visitors would likely, pretty much never find a lot of love for the Electric Umbrella. This mainstay of Epcot has a decidedly retro vibe, with tons of neon and bright colors (which we think is awesome, but others…not so much).

But while the hate for Electric Umbrella is there for some, I don’t really get it. It’s pretty good — and I’ve had awesome experiences here more than I haven’t in the past few years. But you DO need to know what to order… .
