Is Disney World’s Artist Point Worth The Money?

So, Artist Point… we meet again.

Okay, I know… “Melodramatic much?” Maybe. But here’s the thing: this Signature Restaurant in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and I have met several times now. And years ago, I would commonly say that I never knew what to expect. Some visits were terrific, while others… well, just weren’t.

But over my past few visits, I have come to a more regular expectation: that I simply won’t be wowed by the experience.

And — believe it or not — that’s exactly why I keep going back. Because if you’ve been with me here on DFB for any length of time, you know that the only consistent thing about Disney restaurants is that they can be really inconsistent. So I always want to give places a chance to up their game.

Well, that and I just straight up love Wilderness Lodge. :)

So, how did this last visit treat me? Let’s step inside the Lodge…

When you set foot inside Artist Point (and, really, anywhere in Wilderness Lodge), you’re no longer meant to feel as though you’re in the Sunshine State.

Review: Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge

Welcome back to Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

Open for just over a year now, Geyser Point is a lounge-meets-counter-service restaurant (we’ll explain how that works shortly) set outside the beautiful Lodge, making the most of some truly terrific lakeside views.

It used to be that guests could grab a cocktail directly poolside at the casual Trout Pass Pool Bar. But the former Trout Pass has since been transformed into the Salon by the Springs, so Geyser Point is THE place to grab a drink near the Copper Creek Springs Pool.

But there’s much more than drinks in store these days. So let’s pay a one-year-old birthday visit to Geyser Point Bar and Grill! Because even in this very first year, there are already some changes to report. And while there’s still plenty to enjoy here, I can’t say I’m a fan of some of the changes.

Geyser Point welcomes guests by presenting a rustic setting in perfect keeping with Wilderness Lodge.

Don’t Forget to Order Ketchup at Whispering Canyon Cafe Breakfast in Disney World!

Whispering Canyon Cafe is a crazy, raucous restaurant full of fun and hijinks! And we love it for that!

And while we do love the food, which is consistently comforting and tasty, we also love the goofy energy of servers who deliver massive cups of soda and tables covered in ketchup bottles. It’s pretty unique.

Challenge Accepted: How One Family Completed the 2018 DFB Cupcake Crawl!

Y’all, when we issued the 2018 Walt Disney World Cupcake Crawl Challenge a couple weeks ago, we knew it had the potential to be a deliciously fun activity for our amazing DFB readers — but we didn’t know just how adorable it could be!

You’ll recall that the challenge included fourteen of our favorite Walt Disney World cupcakes — plus a few bonus items that we just couldn’t help adding. The Rose Gold Cupcake sold at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot has been a particular fan favorite — even with a whole bunch of rose gold treats popping up every. where.
