Get ready music and food-lovers, because there’s an updated menu at House of Blues in Disney Springs now!
While a few items have rock and rolled off the menu, plenty of new options have made their debut.
Bar Riva at the Riviera Resort has quickly become one of our favorite pool bars in Disney World! We enjoy coming in here for a little toast of sangria or two, and their Baked Brie totally stole a piece of our hearts!
But if you were nervous about taking your kids with you because they wouldn’t enjoy it, don’t worry. They recently added some new menu items for the kiddos to snack on.
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!
It’s time to mix things that shouldn’t be mixed: electricity and umbrellas. We’re back at Epcot’s Electric Umbrella to share the new Brisket Sandwich, a kids’ flatbread option, and a cup of beer cheese. (J/K, we don’t share beer cheese.)
Electric Umbrella is a classic Disney Parks quick service restaurant in Epcot’s Future World. It gets a bad rap, but I honestly am usually pretty happy with my meals there. [Read more…]
In-Room Dining at Walt Disney World
is a bit of a gamble. In the past when I’ve tried it, the food has been lukewarm at best, cold/old at worst, and not prepared very well. (Or rather, it may have been prepared well but didn’t survive its journey to my room!) So when I ordered In-Room Dining for breakfast at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge, I managed my expectations.
I was traveling with my son, so the Kids’ Menu Mickey Waffles were a must. [Read more…]
We often hear from readers who want to know if DFB’s favorites of yore have still got IT.
You know what we mean: do they still have the mojo that keeps guests coming back year after year. For some restaurants at Walt Disney World, it’s killer food and a seasonal, ever-changing menu that draws in a crowd. For others, it’s an atmosphere that can’t be beat — like ‘Ohana‘s warm family feel or Sanaa‘s animal friends right outside the window.
For Beaches & Cream, it’s a sense of nostalgia paired with comforting eats that have been consistently good since the soda shop opened its doors almost thirty years ago. (Let’s just table that thirty years ago bit because there’s no way we’re that old…)
Beaches & Cream is tucked in between the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts on an outdoor walkway adjacent to Stormalong Bay — the fabulous pool shared by the resorts. That means Beaches and Cream is in the Epcot Resort Area (and just a stone’s throw from the International Gateway that serves as an entrance to Epcot’s World Showcase). This convenient location means that even guests not staying at the Resorts will make the short trip to this casual table service location for a bite to eat.
But you (and I!) wanted to know: does Beaches & Cream still have IT?
We love the epically-themed world that is Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park. From the street lights to the vistas of Radiator Springs to the neon, it’s totally immersive and totally fun.
Here at the DFB, we love a good Disney food mash-up, but truth be told, even in our wildest dreams we never conjured up this one: Donut Nuggets.
We know, we know: they sound intriguing and delicious. (And maybe just a smidgen odd…)
The masters of American casual comfort food at D-Luxe Burger are the brainiacs behind this new creation, and since we are masters of, you know, eating donuts and nuggs, we had to get in on the action.
D-Luxe has quickly gone to the top of our favorite counter service burgers because — for once! — the burgers themselves aren’t overdone hockey pucks! We also enjoy the clever combinations of ingredients, like the Southern Burger with fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese (the caviar of the south, y’all!). Plus they have several dipping sauces, and that’s never a bad thing.
Hold your horses, cowpokes!
Because we’ve got a tasty new combo to show you courtesy of Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.
Here’s the deal: you may already know (and love!) the Corn Dog Nuggets made famous in the Magic Kingdom thanks to Casey’s Corner. And now that PLASTIC CHEESE has returned to the beloved hot dog haven, you can dip those Nuggets right on into what I consider the World’s Best Condiment.
Plastic Cheese used to be available at Pecos Bill’s, too, when it was the Magic Kingdom’s most popular burger joint. But a few years ago this Counter Service spot switched to Mexican and Southwest-style fare, and the Pecos Bill’s Fixin’s Bar followed suit. (Plus Plastic Cheese had likewise been removed from Counter Service restaurants all over Disney World, anyhoo.)
But things are looking up with regard to CHEESE at Pecos Bill’s, because Queso Blanco has hit the scene! And we couldn’t help but immediately pair it up with a certain item on the Kids’ Menu, so we can now proudly present to you: Corn Dog Nuggets and Queso Blanco!
I’m a huge fan of queso blanco, and when it originally showed up on the menu at Pecos Bill’s, I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, it was lackluster, to say the least. Prepackaged. Lukewarm. Just… blah. [Read more…]
