It looks like Disney’s Swan Resort recently lost some of its character!
That’s because a long-time running character meal held at Garden Grove Cafe has suddenly disappeared!
At last, City Works Eatery and Pour House is NOW OPEN in Disney Springs!
We can’t wait to dive into more cheese curds and pretzel bites (helloooo gouda cheese sauce), but we need to head over to the bar to find the perfect ‘pour’ to wash down all that cheesy goodness.
And you’ll wanna read this before you go — we’ve got a great way to save some cash money when you DO head to City Works in Disney World.
Something happened under-the-radar last night while all of us were sleeping!
But luckily for YOU, our Mickey senses were tingling this morning when we woke up (they’re especially sensitive when it comes to price increases!). And you know those already pricey character meals at Disney World? Well, they just got EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE!
That’s right friends, we headed back to Planet Hollywood Observatory for a night of dinner, drinks, and random movie memorabilia!
Some of you might remember that our first trip to the reimagined restaurant was…less than amazing. In fact, pretty underwhelming! You can read the whole review here. But we always enjoy heading back to restaurants time and time again to re-review and see if anything has changed.
Hear ye! Hear ye! Let it be known that the Great Republic of the Disney Food Blog will be reviewing dinner henceforth at Liberty Tree Tavern!
That’s right, friends! With Christmastime in full swing at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, we were craving those comforting flavors of a traditional American-style feast that only Liberty Tree Tavern can satisfy! Join us at the table for our holiday all-you-can-eat meal — we saved you a place!
In the pantheon of Walt Disney World character meals, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has not historically been one of our favorites.
It’s passable, with food that will fill you up even if it’s otherwise lackluster. And the atmosphere is in keeping with the Victorian stylings of the Resort, which many guests really embrace and enjoy.
There are characters at breakfast and dinner that cover a lot of ground. The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast brings Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Tigger together in an inexplicable mash-up of British-y and colorful characters. Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner is a little more thematic, with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, and Drizella.
Afternoons from 2PM to 3PM, 1900 Park Fare transforms for guests age 4-12 into the Wonderland Tea Party. This party is hosted by Alice in Wonderland and a couple of her friends and features apple juice masquerading as tea, the chance to decorate a cupcake, and a few fun games. Click here to read more about it!
Of all the options, the dinner line-up of characters offer the most fun for grown-ups, with Lady Tremaine and the Step-Sisters bringing the funny. But are the characters worth the price…and has the food improved since our last visit?
To get to 1900 Park Fare, you’ll need to find your way to the Grand Floridian Resort, located on the monorail loop and right next door to Magic Kingdom. [Read more…]
When you decide to purchase the Disney Dining Plan (or if you snag it during the yearly Free Dining offer!), you want to make sure you maximize your dining credits at every opportunity. With so many one-credit table service restaurants from which to choose, it can be tough to know where to go in order to get the best value for your credits. That’s where the DFB comes in.
, located at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, recently changed its menu, and now there’s a lunch and dinner item that makes this table service spot the biggest bang for your DDP buck! So if you’re a fan of a 20-oz. Bone-In Black Angus Rib-Eye, prepare to be the master of the DDP! On top of the $55 steak, add a $14 Lapu-Lapu and a dessert selection (up to $9), and you’ve got a $78 value for your table service credit!
It’s time to put on your hula skirt (or at least your stretchy pants!) and surf on into the newly reopened Tangaroa Terrace! This quick service spot located at the Disneyland Hotel has a fresh new look — and lots of tasty eats (including Dole Whip!) on the also refreshed menu!
The lunch and dinner menu here has retained some of our old favorites (like Panko-Crusted Long Beans!) and added some newbies. [Read more…]
The Grand Floridian Cafe in Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is known for its relatively understated decor (free of Disney characters and over-the-top styling) and its relaxing atmosphere. But there’s one thing here that’s not at all understated: the food!
Last fall, I shared the Lobster Thermidor and the Floridian Pancakes, both of which were fantastic, and just a couple of months ago we let you in on a little chicken-and-waffles hack.
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.
