DFB Video: The Best Burgers in Walt Disney World!

Happy Saturday! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talkin’ ’bout BURGERS!

Lobster Thermidor Burger at Grand Floridian Cafe

The burger scene in Disney World, believe it or not, has really changed over the past couple of years…. and for the better, at that. So we thought this would be a great time to share what we think are the best burgers in Disney World with nods to some longtime favorites as well as some limited run get-‘em-while-you-can-right-now burgers. Because, thankfully, you’re never far from a great burger in Disney World these days! [Read more…]

Review: Is the NEW Menu at Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom Worth a Visit?

The Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland at Walt Disney World has had a bit of an identity crisis over the years.

Formerly a seasonal counter service spot, the restaurant is now a seasonal table service location. And while Diamond Horseshoe was once home only to an all-you-care-to-enjoy platter (which began as a temporary offering back in 2016), it was announced that beginning May 16, the menu would also include some a la carte options.

And that’s where Diamond Horseshoe stands today: it’s open seasonally and with limited hours (typically 1PM to 7PM), serving table service eats with both an a la carte and all-you-care-to-enjoy menu. And with the advent of the 2018 Disney Dining Plan’s alcohol-included policy, diners can now enjoy a glass of wine or beer with their meals as well.

But with the cycles of Diamond Horseshoe’s menu life seemingly always up in the air, this Magic Kingdom staple has maintained its Old West style and laid back atmosphere. And after my most recent visit, I might say that’s the best thing Diamond Horseshoe has going for it.

Diamond Horseshoe is a rootin’, tootin’ kind of spot, holding fast to its frontier styling in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. And we love it for that.

Preview and Review: Enzo’s Hideaway Sunday Supper in Disney Springs

No matter which day of the week it is when you read this, we’re taking you to Sunday Supper at Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar and Restaurant!

Still somewhat new to the Disney Springs dining scene, Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar opened as one third of a trio of eateries this past January. (The Hideaway’s counterparts are Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Pizza Ponte). Even newer, though, is Enzo’s Sunday Supper — a special menu served from 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm every Sunday. We were able to attend a preview of this event on June 10th, but it is open in full starting this coming Sunday, June 17th.

A note before we begin: you don’t need to make a special reservation for Sunday Supper. In fact, from 4:00 to 10:00 pm every Sunday moving forward, this is the only menu that will be available. So, if you’re interested in Sunday Supper, just be sure to make your Advance Dining Reservation in that window of time.
