Roaring Fork has been a longtime favorite for guests staying at Wilderness Lodge — or even folks who stay elsewhere and trek over to take advantage of the counter service spot’s specialties.

Unfortunately, favorites like Mickey Waffles with Specialty Toppings are no longer available. Still, we found plenty to love on the menu reboot, both for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. [Read more…]

First Look and Review! The New Roaring Fork at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

It’s good to see you again, Roaring Fork!

Roaring Fork is the primary Counter Service restaurant at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Over the past several months, the entire resort has been undergoing several refurbishments, and these changes have certainly included some of the dining options at the Lodge.

For instance, this past February brought the addition of Geyser Point Bar & Grill — a hybrid outdoor lounge and Counter Service location. The opening of Geyser Point coincided with the temporary closure of Roaring Fork for a renovation of its own.

And even though Geyser Point has been a terrific addition to Wilderness Lodge, we have missed Roaring Fork. As home to everything from Specialty Waffles in the morning to some of our favorite cupcakes anywhere — all served up in the Lodge’s uniquely beautiful rustic setting —  Roaring Fork has long held a special place in our hearts. And we know we’re not the only ones who feel that way.

So, I’m sure some of you are as anxious as I am to see what’s new and what’s remained the same (did the Waffles make the cut?!?) at Roaring Fork. Let’s not waste any more time checking it out!

Atmosphere

Before the refurbishment, there were a few words you could always use to describe Roaring Fork. Among them were “rustic” and even “cozy.” [Read more…]

DFB Video Review: The NEW Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Today, we’re visiting Disney’s newest restaurant in our latest DFB Video!

Geyser Point Bar and Grill opened Monday at Wilderness Lodge in Walt Disney World, and we were there on opening day to give you a first look!

Geyser Point opened with a relatively new hybrid concept: half bar and lounge, half counter service restaurant. This is a style Disney has been playing with for a while, and we kind of like it? We think? We’ll let you know in a year or so!

First Look and Review: Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

HELLOOOOO from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

We’re here to check out all the eats and drinks at the BRAND NEW Geyser Point Bar & Grill located near Silver Creek Springs Pool (the Resort’s main pool). This new spot blends right in with the Pacific Northwest feel of this beautiful Resort, and we’re happy to show you around!

By the way, this opening coincides with the temporary closure of Roaring Fork, a Counter Service option, and the permanent closure of Trout Pass Pool Bar. Roaring Fork will reopen later this year once their refurbishments are complete, but Trout Pass will be repurposed, with Geyser Point serving as the main pool bar for both pools.

Therefore, in its opening months, Geyser Point will be THE place for Counter Service breakfast, lunch, AND dinner at Wilderness Lodge (and Territory Lounge will serve continental breakfast options and coffee until 2 pm daily). But there’s more to it than that, as you’re about to see…

There’s only one little problem, though: you’re in Walt Disney World.

Um, here’s the bad news. Don’t bother.

Seating at this ultimate sports bar (yep, there are even TVs in the bathroom) is at such a premium that they aren’t even accepting walk ups. For the Super Bowl, it’s all premium reserved seating, which comes with a cover of $100 per person. [Read more…]
