If you need a little refresher, The Nomad Lounge is conveniently located on the pathway towards Pandora. You’ll find it attached to Animal Kingdom’s Signature Restaurant Tiffins. It’s easily accessible from Discovery Island, Africa, and Pandora — but we enjoy it so we’d even make the trek across the park!
On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me…. Beer?
We had a wonderful time last year attending the “12 Beers of Christmas Event” hosted by Iron Chef Morimoto himself and held at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs. The adults-only event featured unlimited tastes of local craft breweries and Chef Morimoto’s signature Pan-Asian cuisine.
Disney doesn’t get much weirder than this! On November 1st, Le Creuset will be releasing a special high-end line of Star Wars-themed cookware!
And we’re giving you a sneak peek of a few of the new items — as well as a way to pre-order a few of ’em!
Jambo! Recently, we were at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and had a hankering for a nice and unique lunch. Having not been to Tiffins in a while, it seemed like the perfect choice.
Tiffins is the only signature restaurant in the park and features African and Indian inspired dishes. In the past, we have really enjoyed our meals here, but they have updated the menu since our previous reviewed visit and we were excited to check out both some old favorites and new choices.
If you’ve ever daydreamed about a Disney wedding designed by Fairy Tale Weddings (or if you just like to gawk at the gorgeousness and cringe at the costs…), our Disneyland correspondent Heather (hi, @DiningInDisney!!) is bringing you some serious eye candy (or should we say eye bling?) from her visit to the Disney Weddings Showcase! So let’s link arms and make our way down the aisle, shall we?
Sigh. Those are flower petals in stunning ombre filigree on the Magic Kingdom Lawn at Disneyland Hotel. [Read more…]

Trattoria al Forno
opened on Walt Disney World’s BoardWalk in 2014, and from its inception, the Italian eatery has been a warm and welcoming place for guests to enjoy a meal.
Trattoria al Forno
In 2017, Trattoria al Forno expanded its dining options by adding a unique character breakfast called the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast. This character meal allows guests to meet Rapunzel, Flynn Ryder, Ariel, and Prince Eric while dining on entrees and pastries inspired by Tangled and The Little Mermaid.
The Bon Voyage Adventure is a playful meal full of references to the animated films, but dinner at Trattoria al Forno remains a sophisticated affair (as far as theme park dining goes). There’s no dress code here, which makes it a convenient spot to grab dinner after a day at nearby Hollywood Studios or Epcot. The restaurant is also just a quick walk from the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, making it relatively simple to get to even if you’re not staying at BoardWalk Inn and Villas.
We thoroughly enjoyed our initial dinner here when Trattoria opened, and I was excited to dig into more of the slightly eclectic menu and to savor a little more of the cozy ambiance.
Trattoria al Forno commands quite a bit of real estate on the BoardWalk, owing to its spacious interior. The black awnings and the gold text on the signs are classy and let you know that you’re about to dine in style. You’ll also find the BoardWalk’s walk-up pizza window tucked beneath one of the awnings.
