And although it sounds AWESOME, you’re going to need to think about this Disney experience completely differently from how you think about regular Disney hotels when it comes to planning your Disney World vacation!
You Guys! CHRISTMAS!!
Christmas? Wha?? “But, it’s June and it’s so hot/humid/sunny/rainy/sooooo nooooottt Christmas!”
BUT — it’s also only 187 days until Christmas. Yes. REALLY.
That means that if you’re planning a December Disney trip, it’s time to don your Santa hat and get into the holiday spirit, my friends!
Still wondering WHY we’re talking about Christmas IN JUNE? Ha! Lemme explain.
You can book restaurants at Disney World 180 days in advance. And the most popular restaurants book up to capacity on that first day — especially during the most popular travel week of the year in Disney World!
Restaurants at Disney World start booking for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day NEXT WEEK!!! And, we don’t want you to miss out. So it’s time to start planning. [Read more…]
Walt Disney World offers lots of options for truly unique dining, and at 50s Prime Time Café, diners are in for a one-of-a-kind meal with ‘family’.
That’s because Prime Time Cafe is built around the classic 1950s home, with family recipes coming from the kitchen and kitschy decor everywhere.
Speaking of the classic 1950s home — something to note about this restaurant is that the waitstaff are encouraged to interact with the guests as though they’re family. This means that you can be sent to the corner or be told to sing I’m a Little Teapot in front of the whole restaurant if you put your elbows on the table or don’t finish your vegetables. It’s always fun to see Uncle Bruce singing I’m a Little Teapot, don’t get me wrong — but if that kind of interaction isn’t on the menu for YOU, you can always ask your server to tone down the antics with your table.
New dates have been added for two Tables in Wonderland member-exclusive events! These events take place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Convention Center, and space is limited.
During the three- hour Culinary Adventures with the Chefs of Disney: An Interactive Cooking Experience participants will learn tips and tricks from Disney chefs that include hands-on practice and direction!
Jiko — The Cooking Place in Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House at Walt Disney World offers world-class dining, a beautiful collection of wine, and embracing warmth every day. And now, you can capture the spirit on Valentine’s Day with a special two-course prix fixe menu!
The prix fixe menu includes an entree and a dessert. The entree choices include Cocoa-Rubbed Bison and Signal Hill Bo Kap Shellfish (shellfish in a Malay curry). [Read more…]
If you’re looking for a spot to enjoy a romantic (or, you know, just delicious) dinner at Walt Disney World on Valentine’s Day, Yachtsman Steakhouse has a special three-course menu made just for you.
Diners choosing the three-course option (the full a la carte menu is still available as well!) will select from Caesar Salad or Charred Octopus to start, followed by Chateaubriand for Two, and ending with a White and Dark Chocolate Mousse Sphere.
Not only is it still the Most Wonderful Time of the Year in Walt Disney World… it’s also still the BUSIEST Time of the Year! And this week is the BUSIEST!
Crowds are so think it can be hard to walk in some areas of the park, and wait times get up to over 5 hours!
And if your plans for 2019 include a trip to Walt Disney World during peak crowd seasons such as Spring Break, the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, or even a long holiday weekend such as Memorial Day, then we’ve got some information that can help.
In the pantheon of inspired restaurants at Walt Disney World, Jiko — The Cooking Place has been at the top and at the bottom for me over the past few years. I’ve had excellent meals there, and I’ve had ho-hum meals there. So let’s see how this one turns out!
This Signature table service spot is located on the lower level of Animal Kingdom Lodge, across from Boma, the resort’s popular African- and Indian-inspired buffet. (Incidentally, if you’re looking for AKL’s quick service restaurant, The Mara, you’ll also access that through the lower level, too.)
Jiko has been a guest favorite for years. The menu is a celebration of the many and varied food traditions of the African continent, employing high-end ingredients and traditional African components to create a unique (in Disney World anyway) dining experience for guests.
And while Jiko’s menu features a selection of meat dishes (you’ll see several examples below), vegan and vegetarian diners may be offered a variety of choices on a separate menu, so be sure to ask.
Ever wanted to hang out with two of the hottest chefs in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs, sipping some sake and moonshine? Well, your dream is within reach (for a price) with a unique progressive dinner that celebrates the work of Chef Masaharu Morimoto and Chef Art Smith.
“What are you doing New Year’s… New Year’s Eve?”
If you’re making plans to be at Disney World or Disneyland to ring in 2019, you should know about some of the special dining events, fireworks, and midnight toasts that are planned on both coasts.
Whether you’re looking for dining, family fun, or even dancing into 2019, there’s something for everyone this year! [Read more…]
