1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.

News: Chef Mickey’s Relocating to Contemporary Resort Convention Center in Late November through December

Now the temporary relocation is back on. Chef Mickey’s will be relocating to the Convention Center from late November through December 2017.  [Read more…]

News: Snow White Character Meal Coming to NYC This Holiday Season

Typically, we’re curious to know if your Holiday plans include a trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland. But today I’m asking if your Holiday plans include a trip to NEW YORK CITY?!?

Why?? Because Saks Fifth Avenue will be hosting the Saks Holiday Breakfast CHARACTER MEAL: A Royal Celebration of Disney’s Snow White in honor of the 80th Anniversary of the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Snow White, the Prince, and Dopey will all be there to help guests celebrate the occasion… AND the season! [Read more…]

News: Chef Mickey’s Temporarily Relocating to Convention Center

Editor’s Note on 7/19: The temporary relocation to the Convention Center has been cancelled, and guests with Advanced Dining Reservations should receive an email from Disney stating that they can go to Chef Mickey’s regular location for their meal. 

According to wdwmagic.com, Chef Mickey’s will be relocating to the Contemporary Resort’s Convention Center from July 28th through August 13th for unplanned maintenance. (Sounds ominous!)

So, if you have an Advance Dining Reservation for those dates, you can rest assured that you will still be able to enjoy your Breakfast, Brunch, or Dinner buffet with Chef Mickey himself. And he’ll still be joined by Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto.

Additionally, guests who have already scheduled a reservation should be receiving a communication from Disney regarding the relocation.

In fact, you can still (as of this morning) make Advance Dining Reservations for the experience for the dates mentioned above. Fair warning, though… breakfast with Mickey and the gang still remains a hard ticket to get!

Guest Review: Breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel

Today, we head to the west coast for a guest review of Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel. Let’s take a tour — courtesy of guest author, Liz Jostes.

GoofysKitchen_16-001

For our family’s first trip to Disneyland, I booked breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen. Since we were staying at the Disneyland Hotel and our flight home wasn’t until the afternoon, it was a perfect and convenient stop on our final morning on property.

Goofy’s Kitchen is located next to the pool area in the Disneyland Hotel, and a short, easy walk from the Downtown Disney District (for those not staying at the Disneyland Hotel).

Atmosphere

As you walk through the doors of Goofy’s Kitchen, you enter into a lobby and wait for your turn to check-in and pay for your meal (gratuity is automatically included). Then you are welcome to meet Goofy while waiting for your table. [Read more…]
