It’s been almost one year since Disney World’s water parks closed, but Blizzard Beach is readying to reopen on March 7!
Get ready nacho fans and sports fans alike, we’re bringing you a DFB review!
Rix Sports Bar and Grill is a casual sports-bar-style table-service restaurant located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This spot isn’t a major stand out among Disney restaurants since it’s missing the heavy thematic element for which Disney is known. But it’s certainly serving up some yummy eats and filling a bit of a void when it comes to Disney dining! So how is it NOW?
Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Disney Springs isn’t your typical stinky shoe bowling alley with sticky floors and day-old hot dogs…
…it’s a fancy retro bowling alley with leveled-up menu and a total party vibe. (Oh, and it doesn’t stink either!) Ok, so it doesn’t offer exotic flavors like its neighbor Jaleo. It doesn’t have romantic sweeping views of Disney Springs like Paddlefish either. Instead, it offers a HUGE menu with BIG portions that match the incredibly fun atmosphere. Also, they have sushi. Normally, we wouldn’t dare to try sushi from a bowling alley. Splitsville is very different though! With so much great food in Disney Springs, we often overlook this retro-but-make-it-new bowling joint. In fact, we haven’t had a full meal here in a few years. Take a look at how the restaurant and entertainment venue holds up against other Disney Springs restaurants!
Ahh, cheese: basically one of our favorite food groups here at DFB.
If you’re as obsessed as we are (and we are pretty passionate), you’ll want to know EXACTLY where you can find the best cheese in Disney, from killer mac to cream cheese frosting excellence and more! And, we’ve got the greatest list for you, friends… .
White Water Snacks
is the quick service spot at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It’s designed to reflect the spirit and style of camping, and after a brief refurbishment that began in September, we’re happy to report that White Water Snacks has reopened! Here’s a look at the refreshed space and the grub we can’t wait to try!
Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (follow her adventures @DiningInDisney) took a stroll through White Water Snacks to grab a treat from the Get Your Ears On celebration (we’ll take a second look at that in a bit!). [Read more…]
Just a few weeks ago we told you about the impending arrival of the 4 Rivers (4R) Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs. The excitement over this addition to the Marketplace neighborhood was palpable — especially once we got our hot little hands on the eats!
And now the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck has had its official ribbon cutting!
Disney Springs in Walt Disney World
has a new food truck joining them later this month! And we’re pretty sure there’s going to be some excitement!
Local Orlando residents may be familiar with the latest food truck to call Disney Springs home. The new food truck is the newest concept for 4R Restaurant Group, home of the 4 Rivers Smokehouses. [Read more…]
EDITOR’S UPDATE: The Nachos Rio Grande Challenge will no longer be available after September 30, 2017. However, we’ll be on the lookout for future “Secret Menu” offerings rumored for the Magic Kingdom!
What’s that? You’ve never heard of the Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom?
Yeah, don’t feel bad. ‘Cause I’d never heard of it either until just a couple of weeks ago! ;-D But I was so excited when one of our readers asked about the “giant nachos” at Pecos Bill’s. And I was even more excited when I headed over to check them out! (Luckily, they just started these a couple of months ago, and they weren’t publicized anywhere…so I can sort of forgive myself that I didn’t know about them til now.)
As is the case with other “challenges” around Disney World — like the Kitchen Sink Sundae at Beaches and Cream — this one is pricey…and meant to enjoy with a crowd! And I was so excited to find an awesome family to share them with me on my visit!
There’s a lot of hoopla that accompanies ordering the Nachos Rio Grande, and I wanted you to see it firsthand! Check it out!!
OK, the video shows EVERYTHING (so go watch it! And subscribe to our channel! ;-D), but here’s the gist!
To get the Nachos Rio Grande, you need to arrive between 3 and 6PM at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. Let a cast member know you’d like to order the secret Nachos, and the whole restaurant will start buzzing with excitement! I quickly found out that the Nachos serve 6-8 people — or MORE — and the order brings with it a whole “VIP experience” at Pecos Bill’s.
After you order (and pay the astronomical $90 price tag — yeah, you REALLY have to want some big nachos to pay that much), cast members will don their special cowboy hats and escort you back to a reserved table set with pioneer-style tin plates and checkered napkins. [Read more…]
If you’re not familiar, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is like a magical Chipotle serving fajitas, burritos, and rice bowls with a pretty extensive toppings bar in Frontierland. We also give it high marks for the delicious mini churros with a side of chocolate sauce!
It’s located right at the corner of Adventureland and Frontierland with a ton of indoor seating, so it’s a great place to relax and enjoy lunch — and maybe dry off after a trip through the Briar Patch at Splash Mountain!
