Hey, guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of discussing the BEST RIDES in every Disney World park!
Wait… you thought all we did was EAT in the parks ? Heck no, we take on the rides, too (in between Advance Dining Reservations, that is)! 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…]
There’s just something completely perfect about eating an ice cream sundae on Main Street, U.S.A., in the shadow of Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle. The simplicity and innocence of that moment is sort of what Walt’s parks are all about: leaving today and entering the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.
What better way to seize that moment than with an All-American Sundae from the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor?
Hello, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re sharing 11 things that Disney World Pros do, and you should, too!
Sure, we’ve got plenty of tips to share about dining in Disney World… things like how to book the most popular restaurants and find some cool under-the-radar places to dine. But we’ll also discuss the best times of year to visit Disney World, how to get around property, what to pack in your park bag, and more! So settle in, because we’ve got lots of info to make your next Disney World trip easier, and even more magical! [Read more…]
We hear it again and again (and we’ve said it ourselves): Cinderella’s Royal Table is a must at least once in your Disney World vacation life.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
And most guests who’ve dined in this hard-to-book restaurant inside Cinderella Castle agree that you’re really not there for the food. But the ambiance! The princesses! The views! The whole dining experience (did we mention it’s inside the castle?!) is the draw, even if the food is… a little hit or miss.
And it’s that experience that keeps Cinderella’s Royal Table hopping — with Advance Dining Reservations (ADR) ideally being made right at the 180 day mark — 180 days before the first day of your vacation. (Learn more about making dining reservations at Disney restaurants here.)
If you do get an ADR, prepare to be dazzled by the decor and wooed by the energy in the restaurant. You definitely get the sense that you’re in a special space, and with princesses swooping in for a chat and wishing stars waving in the air, it’s a one of a kind meal.
You already know that Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is, well, magical. From sunrise to sunset and beyond, it’s beautiful from almost any angle.
And now our icing wishes have come true (naturally!) at Gaston’s Tavern.
The Plaza Restaurant at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is a classic.
San Angel Inn Restaurante
From its prime location at the Cinderella Castle end of Main Street, USA, to its elegant decor and moderately priced menu, The Plaza Restaurant is a truly great value. And the menu is family friendly (including those bottomless milkshakes!), so it’s easy to enjoy a meal with your whole crew.
But flashier dining options have relegated The Plaza to the realm of hidden gems.
And, honestly, we’re kind of okay with that. Because when Be Our Guest is booked solid, The Plaza is often a gettable alternative. And with a few new menu items, my most recent visit was a total home run.
Happy Friday, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re discussing all things Disney Princesses!
To be more specific, we’re talking about three of the most popular Character Meals where Disney Royalty come directly to your table to greet you as you dine. But when you’re trying to determine which one is best for you (and possibly your little princess or prince), how do you narrow it down between Cinderella’s Royal Table, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, and the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast? Well, that’s exactly what today’s video is designed to help you find out! [Read more…]
Hello there, friends!! We’re back with another DFB Video for this new week in the still-new year, and today we’re debunking myths about Disney dining!
Think food in Disney World is all burgers and fries? Think again… and then think about some more stuff! Because we’re taking on not just that topic, but four more myths about dining in Disney! [Read more…]
You know it! You love it! You have to have it! It’s Dole Whip (affectionately called Pineapple Soft Serve a lot of the time), and it’s been a staple of Walt Disney World for years. Of course you know where you can find it in Adventureland at Aloha Isle (Disney World) and the Tiki Juice Bar (Disneyland) in the shadows of the Tiki Room (you can even bring your sweet treat inside to eat during the show!).
