What Alcoholic Drinks are Included on the Disney Dining Plan?

Last month, we told you about the non-alcoholic specialty drinks that are available with the 2018 Disney Dining Plan — a post that will keep evolving as we learn more about what does and does not count as a beverage on the DDP. Specialty drinks include such tasty gems as Artisanal Milkshakes and Fresh Smoothies!

Happily Ever After Spectacular

Happily Ever After Spectacular

I mean, it’s Monday… so let’s commiserate with each other, why don’t we ;) ? Disney World is a truly special place, and even though it’s always fun to look forward to that next trip, there are some things I always wish I had access to, like, RIGHT NOW. Things like awesome fireworks, the Flight of Passage attraction, Mousekeeping… the list goes on — to include eleven things, in fact! So join me in thinking about the things we miss the most when we’re not in Disney World in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]

Liberty Square is home to, of course, the Haunted Mansion. But it’s not just the place where Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize… it’s also home to some seriously awesome eats. From Sleepy Hollow to Columbia Harbour House to Liberty Tree Tavern… we’re taking you to ALL of them — and more! — in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]

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…]

New Dessert for Prix Fixe Be Our Guest Restaurant Dinner! Grey Stuff Included??

News came out last month about big changes coming to Dinner at Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest Restaurant, beginning July 27, 2018. We learned about dinner becoming a new prix fixe meal, and that the experience will require 2 Table Service credits on the Disney Dining Plan. We also received all sorts of menu details, which you can read about in full and see pictures of by clicking here.

One thing we didn’t learn, however, is what the Beast will be serving for dessert after dinner in his Castle. While guests will order their choice from the appetizer and entree selections, the final course remained a mystery… until now!!

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

If you’re taking on two of Magic Kingdom’s Mountains in Frontierland — Big Thunder and Splash! — at some point you’re going to end up mighty hungry… and that’s why we’re moseying into Frontierland today. We’re showing you every stop where you can grab some vittles! And while you may be well familiar with the ever-popular Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, there are actually several other locations where you can grab some grub that you may not have tried in the past. So join us for a Frontierland Food Tour in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]

The Newest Must-Get Cupcake in Disney World

Well, it’s just one Instagram-able cupcake after the other coming out of Main Street Bakery these days, isn’t it?

I’m about to introduce you to the new Flower Crown Cupcake!!

This trendy cupcake has taken the spot of the Rose Gold Minnie Ears Cupcake in the Main Street Bakery case. Don’t worry, though — if you need a Rose Gold Cupcake to match your Rose Gold Minnie Ears or Rose Gold Spirit Jersey, you can still find one at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons and a few of the Disney resort hotels — at least for the time-being. We saw it safe inside the bakery case in Epcot this very morning!

Anyway, just like the Rose Gold Ears Cupcake, you can also find Minnie Ears in the parks to go with this one for some match-y photo ops :) ! Here are the Flower Crown Minnie Ears

Gaston’s Tavern Now Serving Sandwiches “Roughly the Size of a Barge”

In yet another twist to the menu at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland, Gaston has added some mammoth, meaty sandwiches to the offerings.

You may know that we have long bemoaned the loss of the Pork Shank, which was the Tavern’s signature item when New Fantasyland opened in 2012. Ever since that was removed from the menu, it’s felt like Gaston’s Tavern has lost its footing somewhat in figuring out what to serve (awesome Cinnamon Rollwith extra icing, please! — notwithstanding). Though they did have a decent Tavern Beef Stew for a spell, entree-style items have been largely absent from the menu here.

But for a place with such terrific atmosphere, we wanted more of a reason to linger in the setting in addition to the sweet snacks primarily featured on the menu. Yep, I call the atmosphere “terrific.” Because you know Gaston… he loves his compliments!
