To dig into all these goodies, there is a special souvenir you can pick up at the Hideaway… so watch out for SPORKS AHEAD! [Read more…]
Welcome, fellow Explorers and Adventurers, to The Tropical Hideaway in Disneyland’s Adventureland!
This new counter service location will officially open to Disneyland guests on Friday, December 21st. But it’s in soft openings now, which means that if you’re currently in Disneyland you may be able to catch it open beforehand. [Read more…]
“Welcome to The Tropical Hideaway, you lucky people, you!”
The Tropical Hideaway will soon reveal itself to explorers and adventurers in Disneyland’s Adventureland, and we are SO excited to have been able to attend a Media Preview for this brand new location today before its official opening to the public on Friday, December 21st! (Note that they ARE soft opening today and tomorrow, too, so you might be able to get a taste if you’re there at the right time!) [Read more…]
The Spring Roll Cart in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland has delivered an unexpected variety of Spring Rolls this year! First, there was the return of the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls. Next, Reuben Springs Rolls hit the scene. And now?
Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Spring Rolls are in the house!!!
Well, except when they aren’t in the house… as was the case the first time we went to try them. They were all sold out within the noon hour. [Read more…]
The Tropical Hideaway will open in Disneyland later this year! The exotic marketplace will be nestled between two Adventureland attractions: Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and the Jungle Cruise.
Disney has promised that “In addition to experiencing delicious tastes from all corners of the world, you’ll also encounter colorful wildlife.” And part of that wildlife will be none other than Rosita from the mobile chorus “in the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room”! [Read more…]
The walls around Magic Kingdom’s Club 33 location are entirely down, revealing in full the exclusive members-only lounge.
It’s located in Adventureland to your right upon entry into the area.
Though we received a pretty good glimpse of the space just a few weeks ago when much of the surrounding construction tarps were removed, even more has been revealed as of our latest visit to the Magic Kingdom… [Read more…]
In the pantheon of character meals at Walt Disney World, there’s only one where you can dine with big, fluffy friends straight out of the Hundred Acre Wood — and in a classic Magic Kingdom location: Crystal Palace!
Truth be told, we’ve had a bit of a roller coaster relationship with Crystal Palace over the years. Some visits have been good (like this lunch four years ago and like breakfast here back when you could get into the nearly-empty park!), and one was particularly awful (dinner at the end of the night = icky buffet remnants…I didn’t even do a post about it).
But the opportunity to dine with Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger is pretty much a Disney World rite of passage and something that every Disney fan should do at least once. And dining in the Crystal Palace — a gorgeous building that’s been a mainstay since Magic Kingdom opened in 1971 — is a lovely experience.
But what about the food — arguably the most important aspect of any restaurant? It’s standard, but acceptable on most visits, with breakfast having, perhaps, the most interesting options with Pooh’s Breakfast Lasagna and Puffed French Toast being crowd favorites. And so I returned recently, for lunch this time, to see how things are going.
“What’s This?” as our good friend Jack Skellington asks! We asked the same thing at the Egg Roll Cart in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland!
The times — and the sights! — are changing in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! We’re taking you to three locations around Magic Kingdom today to show you how some areas have changed over a matter of days. Let’s start in Adventureland…
…where the walls and tarps that were previously surrounding the park’s Club 33 location have been removed! [Read more…]
AAAAARRR ya ready to go back to Tortuga Tavern?
This seasonally open spot in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland serves grub to hungry pirates. But because it is open sporadically, you never know exactly what you’ll find on the menu.
For a long time, Tortuga Tavern served up Mexican fare, then switched to a BBQ-based menu. These days, it’s relying primarily on park classics to serve the crowds. You’ll find Hot Dogs and Turkey Legs among the fare.
But I was still in for a couple of small surprises on my last visit. And the rule is, if you find Tortuga Tavern open during your visit, you should at least take a quick glance at the menu… and a quick look around, too!
The main reason it’s fun to stop by Tortuga Tavern is because of its all-things-pirate-y theme in keeping with its location directly across from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.
Just enter under the Jolly Roger… [Read more…]
