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!
And we’re so happy because we’re starting to see many of our favorite restaurants at Disney World reopen, including ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, and Tusker House Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Baby Yoda is everywhere these days! Even in food. As it turns out, a deviled with a bit of food coloring manages to perfectly capture his adorableness.
We can’t get over how cute they are. They aren’t too challenging to make and will impress any Star Wars fan! We’ll walk you through how to create these little guys yourself. Cressie on Instagram created the most adorable recipe that we just had to share with you.
EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival is coming soon and we’re starting to get LOTS of details about all of the food and fun we’ll be able to experience!
The festival is set to take place at EPCOT from March 3rd through July 5th, 2021. We already know what booths will be coming to Flower & Garden, and some of the entertainment that we’ll be able to enjoy. We’ve also already heard that the Spike the Bee scavenger hunt will be coming back, but now we know that ANOTHER scavenger hunt will be returning to the Festival!
We were VERY curious when we found out Chef Mickey’s would be reopening at Disney’s Contemporary Resort during Disney World’s phased reopening. As soon as they began accepting reservations, we promptly booked ourselves a table at this iconic spot!
But like so many newly reopened restaurants at Disney World, Chef Mickey’s has had to make several modifications. They’re no longer offering character dining or buffet-style dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the time being. In fact, dining is just limited to breakfast for now. We’ve already shown you some of the BIGGEST changes Chef Mickey’s has made since it reopened, but now we want to share with you all the details of what our FULL experience was like!
Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World
is nearly finished its years-long renovation, and in October, visitors were finally able to enjoy one of the centerpieces of the resort’s re-imagining: Centertown Market!
We had dinner here shortly after the quick service and grab-and-go spot opened, and to be honest, it was a little hit or miss.
We recently gave you a heads up that Disneyland Resort icon River Belle Terrace is now serving table service breakfast, and if you thought we’d miss a chance to review this offering, you were sorely mistaken. 😉
Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (@DiningInDisney) headed in and ordered everything on the menu — all for you!
River Belle Terrace is a Disneyland icon for a reason: the dining location has been a fixture since the park’s opening, although its name has changed over the years. The current moniker has been in place since 1971, and the style and decor? Oh, just you wait!
Just last week, we gave you a little sneak peek…
We’ll be able to visit Andy’s lunch box, which has been turned on its side, propped with a thermos, and transformed into Woody’s Lunch Box soon! This spot — which will be appropriately sized to all of us “toys” visiting Toy Story Land — will serve hot sandwiches, sides, and desserts and specialty drinks. The focus is on classic comfort flavor combos, with a definite twist for more than a few of the items!
Let’s have a look! [Read more…]
It’s one of the buzziest trends taking place today: food titans across the country are making pledges to switch to cage-free eggs. And today, you can add Disney to the growing list.
Disney has announced its pledge to make the transition to cage-free eggs by the end of 2016. The switchover will be effective for the company’s US-based theme parks as well as Disney Cruise Lines. [Read more…]
Let’s head to one of my highly recommended breakfast spots — Kouzzina, at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn!
This casual, but classy restaurant is carries the name of celebrity chef Cat Cora, and features a menu with a Mediterranean influence that celebrates Cora’s Greek heritage.
Kouzzina has won critical acclaim, and has long been one of our favorite stops for breakfast in all of Walt Disney World. So on a recent trip there, we decided to drop by and see what was new…and there was one thing that I’m STILL dreaming about today! I can’t wait to tell you about it!
Entering Kouzzina from the almost carnival-like atmosphere of Disney’s BoardWalk, you immediately sense a shift in mood. Kouzzina has a decidedly refined atmosphere, but with many rustic touches. It’s almost like urban-meets-farmhouse.
In the entryway, there are shelves with mementos and cooking vessels. We spied this Hidden Mickey, which is a nice reminder that although Cat Cora is the chef, you’re still at Disney.
Since a renovation last year, you can find lots of Cora-rific goodies for sale in the lobby of the restaurant.
Once your name is called and you head into the restaurant, you’ll see another result of the recent renovation. Olive Oil — Greek Olive Oil, to be precise — is used as a hip decor element. Personally, I think this is a little too contemporary for the more “farmhouse-y” feel of the restaurant, but that’s why I’m not an interior designer I guess.
While the art wall of olive oil bottles provides the urban touch, lots of dark wood in the dining room brings the rustic feel to the party. Walls with dark wood wainscoting match booths, tables, and beamed ceilings. Lighter wood planks cover the floor. All in all, the hard surfaces and high ceilings can make for a loud space, but the overall feeling is comfortable.
Bright light is filtered at the windows through white curtains. It really is a very relaxing spot for breakfast in WDW! A good contrast to what you’re about to experience in the parks! 😉
Be sure to look up, too. The light fixtures are really beautiful, with an almost Middle Eastern look.
And the painted tin ceiling carries the feeling of antiquity through the space.
The open kitchen draws the eye, however. It’s always entertaining to watch [Read more…]
