We’re suckers for original Disneyland locales, and The Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland is one of those that totally steals our hearts. A mainstay of the park since day one, there’s plenty of lore about this now-quick service spot, including the presence of Walt’s personal box — at the right-most corner of the restaurant’s balcony — which is now open to the public.
Nomad Lounge has called Animal Kingdom home for just over two years now. It shares a structure and opening date with Tiffins. Their menu is always changing, and on this visit I tried some favorites as well as new items.
Nomad Lounge’s focus is on hand-crafted cocktails, non-alcoholic specialty drinks, and small plates. You’ll also find a broad selection of wines and beers, specifically from the African, Asian, and South American continents. The flavors from these three regions also define much of their menu.

For those of you scratching your head wondering “um…what’s the big deal…it’s a sandwich…”, let us…ahem…shine a light on things!
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re sharing one by popular request: we’re talking about the BEST Disney World Restaurants for vegan and vegetarian fare!
We are always thankful to our DFB Readers who send great tips and info from their own Disney dining experiences. But today’s video is especially a group effort, as our vegan and vegetarian friends have shared some of their favorite restaurants and dishes with us. And we, in turn, are sharing them with you in case you (or anyone in your traveling group) follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. There are plenty of options in the parks, but places on our list can be found in the Resorts or Disney Springs, too, ranging from Counter Service to Table Service. And, as a bonus, we’ll talk about some favorite snacks, too! [Read more…]
The event runs a record 75 days this year, and for the first time ever, will begin in August! Mark your calendars for August 31-November 13!
While we can’t wait to see all of the new dishes that will debut at this year’s Marketplace Booths, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite dishes from last year, like The Chew’s Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce.
The fresh flavors of this vegetarian dish wowed us, and we love that we can recreate it at home with this handy recipe!
Today, we’re heading into Disney’s Animal Kingdom to do what we always do…
A little exploring, accompanied by a little snacking!
And once again, we’re going vegetarian, because that’s a particularly easy thing to do when it comes to snacking at Animal Kingdom. We’ve already learned, in fact , that the focus on providing above par vegetarian options will continue in Animal Kingdom’s upcoming land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR, thanks to a look at the full menu for Satu’li Canteen (the land’s primary dining establishment).
But today we’re winding down a well-traveled path heading from the Africa section of Animal Kingdom into Asia, with a visit to Mr. Kamal’s, which remains one of our favorite kiosks in the park.
Mr. Kamal’s kiosk has proven itself time and time again as a great (and convenient) spot to grab something quick, portable, and vegetarian. The current menu features Hummus served with mini pitas and veggies, Samosa, and falafel, to give you an idea of what to expect. [Read more…]
Today, we have a brand new DFB Video coming your way — straight from Disneyland!
Earlier this week, we brought you a first look at Red Rose Taverne, a new pop-up restaurant that you’ll currently find in Disneyland Park.
It’s happened! Our very first visit to Red Rose Taverne is in the books!!
“What’s Red Rose Taverne?” you ask? It’s a pop-up restaurant — Disney style! An homage to all things Beauty and the Beast — just in time for the feature film to hit theaters in less than a month.
And instead of going to the trouble and expense of building Belle/Beast/Gaston their own place, those clever Imagineers decided to borrow Pinocchio’s digs for a bit. Yep — if you’re looking for Red Rose Taverne in Disneyland, head to the spot where Village Haus is in Fantasyland and you’ll find it!
As you can guess, this is a temporary situation. So intrepid Dining in Disneyland expert Heather Sievers didn’t waste any time getting there to try — well, pretty much everything on the menu.
See? It works. It’s not much of a stretch to think you’d find this medieval-esque building in a small, provincial town in France, mais oui? Clever types will note the sides of the Village Haus Sign peek out from beneath the Red Rose Taverne banner. And note that even though, Miss, this is France, Minute Maid is still the sponsor. 😉
And now, we get to play a fun little game that I like to call Who Is Paying Attention to the Deets? In this archway at the entrance, you usually find Pinocchio being escorted right into trouble by Gideon and Honest John. A red curtain conveniently transforms the space. [Read more…]
Today, we’re heading back to Disney Springs for a lunch break at D-Luxe Burger!
With so many options newly opened at Disney Springs, sometimes it can be hard to make a decision. But we LOVE LOVE LOVED D-Luxe for their delicious Burgers, Hand-Cut Fries, interesting array of Dipping Sauces, and Gelato Shakes from our very first visit opening day.
Pricey? Yes, a bit. But we thought the uptick in quality made it WAY worth the pricetag.
The quick service spot has been open for a few months now, and you might not be surprised to know we’ve been back a few more times 😉
Join us as we share photos and impressions of our follow up visits!
If you’re looking for D-Luxe, you’ll find it centrally located in Town Center, Disney Springs’ newest neighborhood. Park in the Orange or Lime Garage; the walk is about the same distance from both.
As you’re looking at Guest Services in the heart of Town Center, D-Luxe is just to the left.
Step inside and you’ll see rustic finishes and lots of “evidence” to support D-Luxe’s backstory as the former site of a Florida cattle ranch. You can read more details and see a full tour here. [Read more…]
