Review: Abracadabar Spiced Fries!!! (seriously. get these.)

What’s a Disney foodie to do when the parks close, but she’s still raring to go? Hit the BoardWalk, baby!

And while you can pretty much always count on seeing me sitting in the back of Jellyrolls Dueling Piano Bar editing photos til 2AM, there’s another bar on the BoardWalk that is so fun and unusual that you’ve got to check it out at least once!

Abracadabar opened just over a year ago, and it’s been enticing guests ever since. The backstory is that this was the gathering place for BoardWalk magicians and entertainers decades ago — and that the magic is still in the air. (I mean, you’re at Disney World so Disney magic is everywhere already! But this is magic magic!)

You can experience the Abracadabar magic nightly (the bar opens at 4PM), and it’s accessible via the BoardWalk and via hallways to both Flying Fish and Trattoria al Forno, so you can start or finish your meal here easily!

Atmosphere

The exterior of Abracadabar fits with the BoardWalk theming while also giving a hint to the vintage magic you’ll find inside.

Review: Mr. Kamal’s Fries at Mr. Kamal’s in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We have treat for you today, as we stop by one of our favorite kiosks in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Mr. Kamal’s!

This little cart, located on the path that meanders between Africa and Asia behind the Tree of Life, has been home to some of our favorite vegetarian snacks for ages.

Recently, we enjoyed the falafel here, and it’s pretty decent.

In the past, it’s been my go-to spot for vegetarian snacks. They’ve included the aforementioned falafel, hummus, edamame, Asian noodle salad, and samosas.

Sadly, the samosas are off the menu for now. But in their place, Mr. Kamal has debuted another snack. Let’s check it out.

Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries

So, I know that when I think of delicious Pan Asian or African food, I immediately think of french fries. Don’t you?

I dunno. Maybe Mr. Kamal’s been vacationing. In Belgium maybe? With a little side trip to Greece? (Hey, if Disney isn’t gonna give us the backstory, we’re just gonna have to make it up ourselves.) [Read more…]
