Review: Two Grab-and-Go (or Grab-and-STAY) Options at Sanaa Kuamsha Breakfast

Good Morning from Sanaa!

And I don’t say that lightly. I think any morning is a good one when you’re starting it at Animal Kingdom Lodge. And last fall, Sanaa — located in the Resort’s Kidani Village — started offering guests one more way to do that with the arrival of the Kuamsha Breakfast.

Sanaa operates as a Table Service restaurant for lunch and dinner. Breakfast, though, is a different story. Featuring Quick Service entrees as well as Grab-and-Go options (hot and cold items), breakfast is a pretty casual affair.

But that doesn’t mean it’s not a unique experience.

NEW!!: Shhh… All Star Movies Resort SECRET MENU in Walt Disney World!!!

Wanna know a secret? Then come with me to World Premiere Food Court at All Star Movies Resort for an AMAZING one!!

The Food Courts at the All Star Resorts — Sports, Music, and Movies (which is the Resort we’re visiting today) — are pretty fun places. Since the All Stars land in the category of Value Resorts, they don’t offer a Table Service restaurant. So that means the Resort Food Courts are extra big and packed with options to feed the huge numbers of guests in these sprawling Resorts.

That said, the menus tend to cater to the masses primarily with safe bets like pizza, hot dogs, and the like. While the All Stars Food Court counterparts — Pop Century’s Everything Pop and the Art of Animation Resort’s Landscape of Flavors — raised the bar in providing some more unique options, the All Star Resort Food Courts… well, let’s just say they’ve never exactly been what you might call a place of intrigue.

Until now… thanks to the arrival of a few SECRET MENU ITEMS at World Premiere Food Court! And seriously, this is pretty darn cool!

Review: Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

Nearly a year ago, Flying Fish reopened after a lengthy refurbishment closure. Disney Food Blog visited on the very first day that it reopened (here’s that review for reference).

While we gave full marks to the beautiful interior and excellent service, and we found some bright spots to celebrate on the revamped menu, we were frankly underwhelmed. The restaurant had abandoned long time cult favorites like their Potato Wrapped Snapper and the Char-crusted Certified Black Angus New York Strip Steak, purportedly in the name of those hot, buzzy themes of sustainability and seasonality. Fine.

But while everything was indeed fine, it was no longer special. It was no longer my favorite spot to get a last minute signature restaurant advance dining reservation and KNOW that it was going to be fabulous.

Well, we’re a year in now. And I was anxious to see what, if anything, had changed. Had they returned those amazing signature dishes to the menu? Was the menu completely different from a year ago, owing to the use of seasonal ingredients and sustainable seafood choices? Were they celebrating local?

Review: Loaded Potato Puffs at The River Roost in Port Orleans Riverside Resort

Who’s up for a bit of pub grub at The River Roost?

I seriously love River Roost lounge. It’s located in one of my favorite Disney World Resorts: Port Orleans — Riverside. Better yet, it’s home to Yeeha Bob, an honest-to-goodness Disney World treasure. Bob Jackson is a recipient of the Walt Disney Legacy Award who shares his humor, fun, energy, and music with audiences at the River Roost four nights a week.

Oh! And I’ve enjoyed some pretty tasty food here, too. I loved the trio of Prime Rib Sliders that used to be on the menu here. But those were taken off the list some time back, and I’ve been looking for a River Roost replacement.

So if you, too, find yourself at Port Orleans in search of some Potables, Victuals…
