Family-Style Dining Coming to Animal Kingdom’s Pizzafari

You can’t miss Pizzafari when you’re trekking through Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom. This brightly colored restaurant serves up Counter Service pizza, and it’s in what’s become a very popular area in the park, as it’s by the pathway that ends up bringing guests into Pandora — The World of AVATAR.

Review: Catching the Game and Some Eats at ESPN Club on Walt Disney World’s BoardWalk!

Walt Disney World has something for everyone — from rides and attractions to resorts and dining. Today we’re visiting a sports fan’s go-to table service spot in Disney World: ESPN Club!

ESPN Club is an active, energetic restaurant located at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and Villas. And as you might expect, it’s not only sports-themed from the walls to the menu, it’s also a fantastic place to watch the big game.

And since the World Cup is still lighting up screens around the globe, it’s important to know that there are TVs EVERYWHERE. Even in the bathrooms. Yup, you don’t have to miss a second of the game. (Priorities.)

The food, which might very well be secondary for a lot of diners, is OK. It’s no Flying Fish or Abracadabar — both located just a stone’s throw away. But you’re not really at ESPN Club for the eats; you’re there for the game! And the good news is: the food will fuel you long after the final whistle blows!

Atmosphere

The name of the game at ESPN Club is televised sports. And so the atmosphere really revolves around large screens sharing the latest must-watch games and events.

2018 Disney Holiday Merchandise Is Here…And It’s Kind Of Surprising…

With Christmas just around the corner (well, in terms of Walt Disney World, anyway), we’ll be ringing in holiday cheer in the parks before you know it! The 2018 Holiday merchandise is starting to hit the shelves in Disney Parks so you can remember your summer vacation in Disney World as you’re decking the halls this December.

And while we love many of the new designs, there’s one that we think might cause a little stir… ;-D

Here’s a peek at some of the festive decorations and home decor we’ve found already!

Good Tidings Ornament

The Good Tidings ornament shows the changing tide from the mod Holiday merchandise of the past couple of years back to a classic Victorian Christmas feel.  We love the lettering on this, and the colors really are a gorgeous contrast. [Read more…]
