Just recently, Disney has shared with us which Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom restaurants will be reopening on July 11th as well as which dining locations will be available when Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot resume on July 15th. Disney is offering limited menus at many of the resorts and Disney Springs restaurants for the time being. And, now it looks like the parks are following suit.
Hello again from Disney Springs!! Earlier this week we sampled the Bacon Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese which we believe to be one of the items coming to the recently announced Mac and Cheese Truck which will soon join the other Disney Food Trucks.
And speaking other the other Food Trucks… they include the Fantasy Fare Food Truck which is where we’ve just tried ANOTHER new twist on mac and cheese. Introducing the Lobster and Shrimp Mac & Cheese!!
It’s time to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and what better way to do that than with some Italian comfort food and good drinks? At Disney Springs, Maria and Enzo have your back with special menu items this week.
There were a few announcements from Disney today about new menus, additions, and more at popular locations in both Disneyland and Disney World. We’ve already tried some of these items, and the rest are on our to-try list, so stay tuned for reviews and updates! We’ll start out in Disneyland with the brand new menu we reviewed earlier for you.
Disneyland’s Hungry Bear has a brand new menu that includes this Cherry Coca-Cola Funnel Cake plus new sandwiches and burgers.
In Disney World, at Epcot’s Coral Reef Restaurant, you’ll now find a whole stuffed Maine lobster that comes with crispy baby potatoes, asparagus, béarnaise sauce, lemon, and butter. Read our latest review of Coral Reef Restaurant and see if we thought it could rise to the surface or not.
How many times have you said to yourself, “I wish I could eat CHOCOLATE for dinner!!!!” I know. TONS, right? Well the dream has finally come true! And it happened at the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
This year, a brand new signature dining experience kicked off the festival during opening weekend. The Chocolate Dinner, hosted by Ghirardelli Chocolate, promised to be a sumptuous experience for the discriminating chocolate lover.
The dinner consisted of a reception, followed by six plated courses, presented by the Disney chefs who created them.
Let’s head over to Epcot’s World Showplace Event Pavilion for a look at this decadent event!
Ever wonder what’s behind those enormous brown doors between the Canada and UK Pavilions within Epcot’s World Showcase? You might, if you’ve never attended an event at the World Showplace Pavilion. But if you look closely at your Epcot map, you’ll see it there.
That was the setting for the evening’s event, and the sign above the beautiful awning announced it in style.
Pan back a bit, and you can see the main entrance to the building. A reception preceding the plated dinner took place in the World Showplace courtyard, to the left of the main entrance.
As we entered through the massive brown wooden doors, a team of servers greeted us with beverages. Guests could choose from Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, Chocolate Martinis, or Sparkling Wine. The drinks disappeared quickly every time the staff came out with another tray of them!
While guests sipped on their cocktails, beer, and wine, teams of cast members passed trays of [Read more…]

We’re so excited to have a review of Disney’s Aulani Resort’s premier restaurant just a few days after its opening! Mark Hickson is a Disney fan, a former Disney Imagineer, and a Hawai’i resident and food blogger (among many other things). We’re honored to share this article with our readers. Thanks, Mark!
So the resort has been open for five days now and I thought it would be the perfect time to dine in the resort’s signature restaurant, ‘AMA ‘AMA. The restaurant is named after the tasty mullet fish ʻamaʻama that us locals enjoy.
The setting is an open air thatched roof fishing shack and a minimalist fishing factory with concrete pillars and a large fish holding tanks complete with pipeline and spigot. Of all the beautiful facilities at Aulani Resort this place’s theme is the only one that doesn’t work.
Our reservations were for 5:30pm and my wife and I were seated directly. Unfortunately since it is an open air dining area (no walls), the sun was low enough to shine in so it was very bright and hot at our table. In retrospect I would wait until sunset to be seated.
Take a look at the official ‘AMA ‘AMA menus below:
For drinks I ordered a Pineapple Papaya Cosmo. It was fun, tropical and fresh with a light foam on top. Good enough to order a second, which I did! My wife’s coffee was [Read more…]
