Now we’re back to give you a full review of the breakfast and our experience! What are you waiting for? Let’s get going!
In case you missed it, it’s almost Oscars night! And get this — the Walt Disney Company has received a total of 15 nominations! Woo-hoo!
Some of our favorite movies from the last year have been nominated, including Soul, Mulan, Onward, Burrow, The One and Only Ivan, and more! So which movies will take home Academy Awards — we don’t know, but we can’t wait to watch and find out! It’s Oscars Party time!
Hello, from Disney’s Yacht Club Resort!
We decided to try breakfast at the table-service location Ale & Compass on our recent trip to Disney World. This restaurant is known for coastal, New-England style cuisine. We haven’t been blown away by this location in the past so we wanted to see how breakfast was holding up.
Whispering Canyon Cafe is a casual table service restaurant located just off the lobby at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge, and it’s known for its antics that are decidedly not whispering. But you might recall that a couple of years ago the Canyon reportedly grew quieter — check out the changes here!
I revisited after the changes were made and found the restaurant’s energy to be a shadow of its former self (click here to find out why!) But since then, Whispering Canyon Cafe introduced new skillets, so we’re back again! [Read more…]
Disney has reached out in our time of need by giving the people what they truly NEED: food recipes. It’s like they know all we’re doing these days is baking bread! 😉
And while we are SO appreciative that they’re thinking of us, we couldn’t help but notice they’ve missed the mark JUST A TOUCH in the recipes they’ve been sharing.
We recently shared Disney’s recipe for a “frozen pineapple treat,” and while we love a good “frozen pineapple treat” as much as the next person, Dole Whip, this wasn’t. That got us thinking…what other iconic Disney recipes can we share with our readers? We have a few we think you’re REALLY gonna love.
Hi, All! If you're looking for information related to the current closures and their effect on the Disney Parks, click here for all the up-to-date details and click here for answers to dozens of reader FAQs. Here at DFB our thoughts are with all who have been affected. While the parks are closed, we will continue reporting and writing articles our readers will need and use once the parks reopen. Thank you for your support.
You know that feeling when you put on your outfit for the day, smell the fresh morning air, and grab one of your favorite Disney breakfasts?? (We’re talking about bliss, people!)
Well, even if you can’t be in the parks right now, you can still bring a little bit of that Disney magic into your kitchen back home with the BEST breakfast recipes to make your morning brighter!
With that California sunshine beaming down and LOTS of things to do and see in the parks, a good breakfast is a must-have in Disneyland!
And, you can start your morning off the right way whether you’re staying at the resorts or you’re back home with this hearty recipe!
Surf’s up at Disney’s PCH Grill, where we recently enjoyed Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast! This character meal is at Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel and offers the chance to fill up on breakfast eats and character interactions.
As you might’ve guessed, Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast features characters in their beach finest (you’ll see them in a bit!). [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.
I know I’m not alone in considering the Grand Floridian Cafe to be a hidden gem among resort restaurants.
Located in one of Walt Disney World’s most beautiful hotels, the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, this moderately-priced table service restaurant is rarely so busy that you can’t score a walk-up table. That has held true for me at even the busiest times, such as spring break.
A while back we experienced a delightful dinner at Grand Floridian Cafe, and I had been anxious ever since that time to get back for breakfast.
On a recent trip, we finally had an opportunity to take in our morning meal there.
The atmosphere at the Grand Floridian Cafe is a little on the nondescript side. It’s not that it’s uncomfortable or unattractive; it’s just that bumped up against all the over-the-top themeing in many Disney spots, this one pales by comparison.
What you will find is a really beautiful, bright, cheerful spot that melds the Victorian with the Floridian perfectly.
At breakfast, you’ll find plenty of guests sitting back, sipping coffee, and reading the paper. It’s just screams “relaxed,” which may be exactly what you need during a busy Disney vacation.
It does feel a little on the dated side…but that kinda makes sense, since you’re supposed to feel like you’re surrounded by the 19th, not the 21st, century.
Mirrors give the space a larger feel, and the heavy marble and iron tables remind me a bit of the sunroom seating at Tony’s Town Square in Magic Kingdom. It’s a nice tie-in to the Main Street U.S.A. vintage feel.
There’s also mixed banquette and chair seating here, so everyone can have the seat they prefer.
The view through the windows onto the [Read more…]
