Valentine’s Day Menu at Orlando’s La Luce by Donna Scala

Woo!! As you know, Mr. Wolfe and I absolutely love, love, love this restaurant — take a look around via my La Luce review… .

It’s located right in the middle of Disney World property (at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort) and offers (in our humble opinion) the best Italian meal around. So I was pretty excited to find out that La Luce by Donna Scala will offer a yummo specialty menu from [Read more…]

Review: La Luce by Donna Scala

I’ve been SO excited to write this review; I can’t wait to introduce you guys to what has become one of my favorite Italian restaurants of all time. (Yep, this is the place that has that amazing butterscotch pudding.)


La Luce by (California celeb chef) Donna Scala is located in the middle of Disney World property at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort. The restaurant is a great juxtaposition of sleek lines and cool tile coupled with warm leather, soft pillows, and bright chalk artwork…on actual chalkboards. No kidding — the artists work [Read more…]

The Big Deal About Butterscotch Pudding

“Holy delicious!!” “Not to miss.” “Crazy good.” These are the kinds of reviews I’d been hearing about the butterscotch pudding at the new La Luce by Donna Scala at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort. That’s right; butterscotch pudding. Like, the stuff you remember from when you were a kid that came out of a box or a plastic cup and was pretty much what was left over after everyone else ate the chocolate pudding. I was skeptical to say the least. I’ve clearly never been a butterscotch pudding fan.

But my favorite review — and the one that made me finally want to close the book on this dessert — was from’s food critic, Jim Webster: “There are other options beside the butterscotch pudding. They may even be good. Ignore them.”

It turns out this stuff even has its own facebook fan page.

Fast forward to my recent Orlando trip where we got the chance to head over to La Luce (the Hilton Bonnet Creek is located between Downtown Disney and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, inside the WDW gates) and finally try it.

And, yeah. This is not the pudding you remember from your lunch box — or even from your grandma’s homemade recipe. Made with 12-year Macallan Scotch, the pudding is velvety rich, and creamy. There’s no hint of [Read more…]

Five New Disney World Drinks You’ve Gotta Try

You guys know I’m always looking for new, fun drinks to try, and I had a field day on my recent trip to Orlando! Here are just a few of my new favorites:

Yak and Yeti: Shaved Ice Martini
A.K.A. — the snow cone. This fun drink comes in three flavors — Grape, Cherry, and Citrus/Melon. I chose the shockingly bright green version, which included vodka, midori, and pineapple juice along with my (beloved) sweet and sour. The presentation is the best part, but who WOULDN’T want to try an alcoholic snow cone?! Find it at Yak and Yeti Restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

La Luce by Donna Scala: Limonata
A straight-up pucker-fest, the Limonata is a classy drink served in a classy atmosphere. It’s light, refreshing, and sour — just how I like it! Pair it with the fritto misto or the (incredible) four cheese pizza appetizer. Find it at La Luce by Donna Scala, a new restaurant at [Read more…]
