It’s hot in central Florida, and it isn’t cooling off any time soon. So you’ll want to keep your cool by sipping on a Strawberry Lemonade with an optional shot of Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum. We found this at the popcorn cart to the left of the Chinese Theater.

Review: Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort at Walt Disney World

When it comes to getting a great steak at Walt Disney World, there’s no shortage of intriguing options, including our current favorite steak on property: the Wagyu Beef at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs.

And when you visit a steakhouse in the World, you enter with certain expectations for mind-blowing excellence. Today we visit Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort. Will it live up to expectations?

Yachtsman Steakhouse has a solid reputation as a place to get a reliable steak with tasty sides (and awesome pull-apart onion bread…). Located in the subtly elegant Yacht Club, with its nostalgic lobby smell and clean, nautical lines, Yachtsman is a convenient out-of-park place to grab a meal, being proximal to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

We’ve enjoyed our visits here in the past, including the Porterhouse for Two and a delightful Boneless Ribeye. Would this visit be as successful as those in the past?

21 Myths About Walt Disney World Food DEBUNKED

The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. ;) Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!

Ready to Head to Disney World?

Ready to Head to Disney World?

1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

Whether you’re looking to save stomach space, hate wasting food, or want to save a little money, don’t neglect the kids’ menu!

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.

DFB Video: Best Disney World Snack Breakfasts!

It’s a brand new week! And we’re kicking it off with another DFB Video, where we’re talking about the best snacks for breakfast in Disney World!

Beignets for Breakfast!!!

Beignets for Breakfast!!!

Now, even though breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, the truth is that — in Disney World — the breakfast options don’t always provide the most bang for your buck, especially if you’re considering using a Counter Service meal credit from the Disney Dining Plan. But there are some brilliant ways to use your snack credits for breakfast at Disney World! And even if you aren’t using the Disney Dining Plan, lots of these make terrific options even if you’re paying out of pocket. So join us for breakfast… in Disney World! [Read more…]

Review: Breakfast at Ale & Compass Restaurant in Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort

We’re starting our day in Disney World’s Yacht Club at Ale & Compass Restaurant!

Ale & Compass Restaurant opened just last November, replacing the long-standing Captain’s Grille as the casual Table Service location for the Yacht Club. (The other Table Service option here — Yachtsman Steakhouse — is a Signature restaurant.)

We’ve already visited for lunch and dinner, but I was particularly curious about breakfast, since this meal in particular had — in my opinion — more to live up to. I (and many others) always thought Captain’s Grille was a hidden gem in regards to breakfast. It offered both a buffet option along with some unique (and even memorable) a la carte items such as Dark Chocolate Waffles and the Lobster Omelet.

While many were ready for a change from Captain’s Grille lunch and dinner options, it left some rather big breakfast shoes to fill.

Magic Kingdom’s Happily Ever After Fireworks Spectacular

Many Disney World guests don’t feel as though a Disney day is complete without capping it off with one of the famous Disney World fireworks spectaculars! But did you know that you can watch the fireworks in spots other than Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A. or surrounding Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon? In fact, several restaurants (some even located outside the parks in select Disney World Resorts) around Disney World offer views of the fireworks, so you can relax and enjoy a meal while taking in one of the shows! We’re sharing those spots with you today — along with some helpful tips for scoring a reservation — in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]
