Disneyland Hotel opened back on July 2nd, and with it came a few of its restaurants! One of them, in particular, was at the TOP of our “must revisit” list for good reason — it’s basically one of the coolest bars on earth. We’re heading over to Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar to try out the food and get you a full review!
It’s hard to go wrong with a combination like wine and chocolate.
For New Year’s, Disney World offered a special celebration package that included sparkling wine and chocolate at a few resort restaurants. It looks like this package will continue in 2021, because a Valentine’s Day version has just popped up on select menus!
Just moments ago we reported that Amorette’s Patisserie had officially reopened in Disney Springs!
And while they only have a limited menu right now (they hope to be fully operational by Sunday), we noticed they’ve made few price increases on some of their alcoholic beverages!
We have been waiting patiently since we first heard the announcement, and the day has finally arrived. The doors to Amorette’s Patisserie have officially opened!
The brand new, upscale bakery joins other boutique sweets spots, like Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC, The Ganachery, and Vivoli Gelateria, at Disney Springs this week. The work on the newly re-imagined shopping and dining district is just about complete, and it’s pretty amazing.
But along with other carts and shops, Amorette’s Patisserie has been on our short list of places to anticipate! Let’s head in and take a look around.
Step into the newly opened Town Center at Disney Springs and you’ll soon locate Amorette’s Patisserie. The Disney-created back story is charming: artistic sisters Kara and Sara are the current owners of the shop, which has been passed down through many generations of their family. The shop dates back to the earliest days of Disney Springs, around 1900.
But the sisters are as interested in artistic expression via beautiful and delicious pastries as they are in other forms of art. And so you see evidence of their handiwork throughout the shop. We’ll get to some sweet examples in a minute, but first, let’s look around a bit. [Read more…]
Set sail on the Seven Seas Lagoon with us today as we take a first look and review a brand new premium offering at Walt Disney World — Ferrytale Wishes, A Fireworks Dessert Cruise.
The special event is still undergoing testing as Disney works to get all of the bugs out before the event’s official debut on Monday, October 5.
I had the opportunity to experience the cruise for myself last week while I was at Walt Disney World for the kickoff of the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Of course, I was anxious to check it out ahead of the opening. I know some of you have already booked the experience, so I’ve been excited to share with you a first look. Let’s head to the boat!
Ferrytale Wishes, A Fireworks Dessert Cruise
The Cruise departs from the Transportation and Ticket Center, so I was instructed to park in the Magic Kingdom parking lot.
I checked in at a location near the entrance to the Ferry Boats Dock. Don’t worry; Cast Members are there to help you find your way. 🙂 As you approach the TTC, just head left as though you plan to board a ferry to Magic Kingdom, and you’ll be in the right place.
Boarding began at 7:45 PM, and we were scheduled to sail at 8:00 PM promptly. Sailing time will change, of course, as it depends on when Wishes will be scheduled each night. Be sure to pay attention to the information for your particular booking. [Read more…]
If you spend any time checking out the menus of Disney restaurants, you’ll notice that St. Germain Liqueur is popping up a lot these days!
And with good reason! St. Germain is a French liqueur that’s made from elderflowers. The delicate, sweet taste is very unique and seems to be taking Disney World by storm.
With flavors that remind me of grapefruit and honey, this liqueur makes for a lovely warm weather cocktail. So for a recent family gathering, we decided to give it a try!
St. Germain Cocktail, Three Ways
We opted for the small, 50 ml bottles of liqueur. Actually, the store was out of the larger bottles, or that’s the way that we would have gone! A little pricey, but sooo worth it.
The bottles [Read more…]
