Review: All-New Limited Run Breakfast at Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Well, here’s a new one for ya… how about starting your day UNDER THE STARS at Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant?

Yep, the perpetual evening setting of Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant is now the latest breakfast stop at Disney’s  Hollywood Studios! This long-time, well-loved lunch and dinner spot is now offering a limited-run meal: guests can give breakfast a try at Sci-Fi Dine-In, currently available for booking from now until January 23, 2016 with seatings from 8:00 – 10:15 am.

Of course, this isn’t Sci-Fi’s first time serving up the most important meal of the day. For the past two years, it has played host to the Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast, a character meal held in conjunction with Star Wars Weekends. But Darth Vader and his Dark Side cronies stayed in a galaxy far, far away this go ‘round. The current breakfast offering is a non-character meal featuring pre-fixe selections.

Are you ready to check it out?

Dining in Disneyland: Fun Halloween Time Candy Bags!

Halloween time is HERE! Themed treats and merchandise have already started to appear at the Disneyland Resort.  On a recent visit I spotted these perfectly packaged Seasonal Candy Bags at Disney California Adventure.

The artwork & packaging on these really caught my eye!  There are four different bag designs, each one containing a different type of candy.  The candies themselves are not new, but the packaging “make over” from previous years is going to have them flying off the shelves.  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I like Donald’s “Terror in Tomorrowland” artwork best.

Review: Teriyaki Beef Slider at Bradley Falls in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I love all of the new menu changes that have been happening lately at Animal Kingdom.

It’s fun to explore the kiosks and counter service spots here especially, because it always seems like there’s something new to discover.

That’s especially true with the introduction of Harambe Market earlier this year. And who can resist popping into Zuri’s Sweets Shop to see what temptations await you?

But today, we’re exploring an old favorite — Bradley Falls Kiosk.

Seriously. Every single time I set foot into Animal Kingdom, it seems like I find new dishes at this cute little cart. And on a visit earlier this year, the same held true.
