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!).
Aloha from Okalani’s Shave Ice!
This cute little kiosk at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort takes a keen eye to find, but it’s worth the tiny trek.
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…]
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a tiki bar full of enchantment, adventure… and crazy popular souvenir glasses!
While many of the specialty cocktails on the menu such as Krakatoa Punch, the Uh-Oa!, and the Polynesian Pearl come in souvenir glasses, the granddaddy of them all is: The Nautilus. And the “glass” is now available in its 2nd edition, according to the @WDWToday Twitter account. [Read more…]
You may recall the debut of the 2016 Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, causing lines for daaaayz of guests hoping to grab the limited edition piece (and causing more of the same when it arrived at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney World shortly thereafter). Well, get ready to face those lines again, my friends… because the 1st Edition Holiday Elephant Tiki Mug will arrive at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland Hotel on November 30th!
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!
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re checking out the BEST Disney World Resorts!
There is a LOT to consider when you’re planning your Disney World vacation… and at the top of the list is where to stay! Disney World has no shortage of beautifully themed Resorts to choose from. And while they all have their own style of Disney magic, we’d like to share our favorites with you today! [Read more…]
Okay, so YES, we are checking out something called the “Big Kahuna” at the Polynesian Village Resort.
Still, taken on its own, the Big Kahuna Sandwich deserves a look in its own right. I mean, anything called the Big Kahuna Sandwich should be able to measure up to its name, right?
That’s what we’re here to find out!
The Big Kahuna Sandwich consists of turkey, ham, salami, roast beef, Swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato with a red pepper spread, all tucked into focaccia bread. The $11.29 entree comes with a pile of French Fries.
Looking at it from the top, it does indeed take up a lot of the box. (These takeaway styles have been in use for some time now at Captain Cook’s, replacing the standard Disney Parks plates for many dishes, and they are obviously terrific for transporting your meal.)
We wait all year for the start of it. Yep — the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is underway!
If you haven’t been, be sure to put the event on your Disney Bucket List. At this time of year, Epcot is transformed into a food lover’s paradise. With Festival Marketplace Booths throughout both Future World and World Showcase, the opportunity to Eat Your Way Around the World(s) is even more exciting!
But there are also some choices if you’d like to splurge a little. Party for the Senses draws big crowds every year, as do pairing events and signature dining options at restaurants throughout the resort.
It’s a lot to plan for! So we’d love to offer you advice on a few Dos and Don’ts for navigating the Epcot Food and Wine Festival like a pro. Consider these pointers as you make plans to attend this year’s event. [Read more…]
