Disney’s Hollywood Studios Menus and Eats

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! NEW Menu at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Disney California Adventure!

Flo’s V8 Cafe is a quick service location in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park, and we’ve visited many times to enjoy the American style, homey offerings. We loved the Roast Beef Sandwich Flo was serving up on her lunch and dinner menu, and we were pretty stoked when Flo started serving breakfast again!

But that menu of comfort foods changed recently, and we had to dig in to see if it would remain as satisfying as ever. The new menu features lots of cleverly named dishes, including the Fin-tastic Tuna Sandwich and the Ka-Cheeseburger (you know — like “Ka-chow”!).

Review: The Boathouse in Disney Springs: Still Smooth Sailing or Adrift at Sea?

When we first visited The BOATHOUSE (caps official!) in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs back in early 2015, it wowed us with its quality seaside eats and charming decor.

We enjoyed it so much in April of that year that we returned in November to see if The Boathouse was staying afloat in the ever-changing landscape of Disney Springs. And it really was!

Truth be told, we still got a little sticker shock when we perused that mostly-seafood-and-steak menu, but with the food being as good as it was, we sort of got over it. So much so that in 2017, we headed back for dinner!

Yeah, you could say we’re fans. But even when a restaurant proves itself to be consistently good (with the exception, maybe, of that crazily overpriced, not very good S’mores Baked Alaska!), it’s our duty to keep checking on things to, you know, make sure it’s still awesome. So put on your life jacket and hoist the sails because we’re hitting the high seas at The BOATHOUSE.

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?
