Even though it’s a pricey vacation, there are still some ways to save money on your Disney World trip. From official discounts to dining hacks, we found several great deals that you can still take advantage of for your 2022 vacation. [Read more…]
2021 has come to a close, and it’s time to take a look back down memory lane (for better or for worse) and some of the food and drink items we tried at Disney World over the past year. We’re in the parks every day trying the latest dining offerings (while also re-visiting restaurants throughout the year!), so we’ve experienced the full range of what the parks and resorts have had to offer.
Today, we’re sharing with you our “hall of fame” when it comes to the best as well as the worst things we tried in Disney World this year! If you’ve followed along with our monthly installments, then you may recognize a few of these selections! Let’s waste no time and dive right into what stood out to our team the most in 2021 (in no particular order!).
Wait, wasn’t it just the start of 2021 like two seconds ago? And didn’t we just celebrate Halloween? How on earth is it almost 2022?!?!
Well, whether you’re prepared for 2022 or not, the new year is a comin’! We’ve already seen 2022 merchandise released online, New Year’s Eve celebrations announced for Disney World, and 2022 discounts shared. If you’re planning a trip to Disney World in 2022 you want to make sure you get the BEST, most tasty snacks while you’re there, right? Well, we’ve got you covered!
Over the years, Disney World has made quite a few BIG decisions!
They’ve introduced new offerings, updated old attractions, and tried a variety of new snack and merchandise options. Some of these decisions have been popular, but others, well…not so much. Today we’re discussing the times that Disney World missed the mark a liiiiittle bit!
The past few years at Disney World have been…different, to say the least.
We’ve seen some of the same supply shortages at Disney World that much of the rest of the U.S. is experiencing. First, there was an issue with ketchup. Then there was a shortage of POG juice. And most recently, there was a noodles shortage — yes, THERE WAS A NOODLES SHORTAGE AT DISNEY WORLD.
Is any Disney World restaurant more iconic than ‘Ohana? And although we gasped when the menu first appeared sans Noodles, we let out a sigh of relief when Disney World confirmed the Noodles would be returning. (Don’t get us started on this whole noods shortage RN! ‘Ohana keepin’ us on our noodle-toes!) SO, what if you can’t get to ‘Ohana anytime soon but you’re craving those Noods or that Bread Pudding or any of the other yummy dishes you can’t get anywhere else? WE. GOT. YO. BACK. You just need to provide some cooking skillz.
There are some foods at Disney World that we just can’t get enough of.
Plastic cheese, cheeseburger pods, dole whip, corn dog nuggets — we could go on and on! And, one of our absolute favorite things to eat in Disney World are the noodles over at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. We’ve had some ups and downs with the dish, like when they weren’t on the menu when the restaurant reopened in July (they were later brought back!). But, we unfortunately have some very sad news again about one of our favorite side dishes.
“ALOHA,” my friends!
Actually, scratch that… I’d like to say “Aloha” to our family of DFB readers.
Why? Because today we’re talking about all things ‘Ohana! And if you’ve dined at this beloved Disney World restaurant– or if you’ve ever seen the movie Lilo & Stitch — you are likely familiar with this phase: “Ohana means FAMILY.”
That said, when we’re talking specifically about ‘Ohana, the popular all-you-care-to-enjoy Table Service restaurant in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, ‘Ohana often means even more to a lot of people… like our readers! They’ve been kind enough to share their stories of ‘Ohana with us through a conversation on Facebook, including their great and not-so-great experiences.
And we, in turn, are sharing their thoughts and stories with you here, so you can know what to expect and perhaps how to prepare for your first — or next! — visit to ‘Ohana.
So pull up a chair, relax, and and get ready to dig in to the feast of information about what ‘Ohana, the restaurant, really means… . [Read more…]
We’re back at ‘Ohana again for the second time this summer (not that we’re complaining)! ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort updated their menu recently to bring back a few old favorites that we know and love.
Of course, we had to head over to try out the updated menu! Let’s head in to see what yummy dishes have returned and which are not available anymore. More importantly — do the changes make it BETTER?
