One of our favorite things about staying in a Disney Vacation Club villa is the inclusion of a kitchen where we can whip up a quick meal any time of the day.
And while the DVC resorts do sell a variety of groceries in the resort’s gift shop, many guests choose to order groceries from off-site stores including Garden Grocer.com or have non-perishable items shipped to the hotel.
But did you know that you can order groceries from the DVC resort hotels and have them delivered to your villa? [Read more…]
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re sharing one by popular request: we’re talking about the BEST Disney World Restaurants for vegan and vegetarian fare!
We are always thankful to our DFB Readers who send great tips and info from their own Disney dining experiences. But today’s video is especially a group effort, as our vegan and vegetarian friends have shared some of their favorite restaurants and dishes with us. And we, in turn, are sharing them with you in case you (or anyone in your traveling group) follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. There are plenty of options in the parks, but places on our list can be found in the Resorts or Disney Springs, too, ranging from Counter Service to Table Service. And, as a bonus, we’ll talk about some favorite snacks, too! [Read more…]
Hey, you all! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re discussing the Top 5 Disney World Resorts in terms of our favorite topic: FOOD!
When you think of food at Disney World, perhaps your mind goes to the parks first. Maybe iconic snacks like the Magic Kingdom’s Citrus Swirl come to mind, or fun and unique in-park dining experiences like Sci-Fi Dine In at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But I’m telling you, there is a LOT of terrific eating to do outside the parks in the Disney World Resorts, and we’re talking today about our top five Resorts in regards to dining experiences. And remember, thanks to Disney Transportation, you don’t need to be staying at a Resort to check out the restaurants or snacks at any given spot. So settle in, and enjoy our latest DFB Video to learn more! [Read more…]
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!
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!
Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse! Mickey’s birthday is November 18th, and if you’re in Disney World this weekend (November 17th – November 19th), YOU can celebrate everyone’s favorite Mouse with special treats all over the Resort!

Jambo from The Mara in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!
It wasn’t all that long ago that we were here, pointing out three Must-Eat Snacks at the Lodge’s Counter Service option and sipping on some new-to-The-Mara Frozen Jungle Juice. But the Jungle Juice wasn’t the only new thing we found on that visit, which is what we’re excited to share with you today.
Longtime standouts at The Mara for lunch and dinner include unique items such as African Potjie Stew and tasty Soups of the Day alongside classic Burgers, Flatbreads, and Chicken Breast Nuggets.
That said, they aren’t afraid to switch things up every once in a while — and that’s a VERY good thing! Every so often, your basic Hot Dog or sandwich gets a bit of an African-inspired twist, as is the case with two of the three new items we’re trying today.
So, come right back into The Mara with us!
The Mara gets its name from the Masai Mara National Reserve, located in southwestern Kenya on the border of Tanzania. The small food court is only accessible from outside the resort, on the lower level and near the pool. Once inside, you’ll immediately notice the ceiling artfully mimicking the tree tops and some soft ambient lighting that creates interesting shadows. [Read more…]
