We’ve tried soooo many holiday snacks around Disney World today!
Is there anything better than eating poolside?
Honestly, we’d answer no…not much is better than a poolside lunch! And one of the big perks of staying at a Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, like Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, is the chance to sit back and relax and enjoy a few slower meals during the hustle and bustle of your Disney vacay. With several pools and dining options at many of them, it’s easy to have your poolside cocktail and eat lunch too.
That is precisely what we did at Saratoga Springs one day — specifically at the Paddock Grill. Would this leisurely lunch stack up to our laid-back mealtime fantasy? Keep reading to find out!
Today is the day many of us have been waiting for! The day that the Main Street Electrical Parade officially returns to Disneyland!!
And in celebration of this momentous day, Disney has released a TON of Main Street Electrical Parade treats!
We’re excited to bring you new menu items at an open-every-once-in-a-while favorite — Tomorrowland Terrace at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!
This counter-service restaurant is open seasonally during the busiest times, so you might not have eaten here; but we’re sure you’ve passed by it on your shortcut from Main Street to Tomorrowland!
We love this outdoor restaurant for its ample, covered seating and menu that can please any crowd. The menu has always been a mixture of hard-to-find counter-service dishes (like pasta!) and classic American items that will make even the pickiest eaters happy.
Sadly, the pasta is gone, but we’re happy to report that the new items keep the balance of ordinary and out of this world!
Since we don’t get to talk about Tomorrowland Terrace often, let’s explore the location a little more…

Today we’re visiting a Fantasyland classic… Pinocchio Village Haus Restaurant!
We were here not all that long ago, trying out the recent addition of Pesto Knots to the menu at this joint, which simultaneously features Bavarian architecture and Italian fare. And Pinocchio’s is always a great place to check out — especially in the hot summer months — for their character-inspired frozen Slushes (not to be confused with “Frozen” character slushes… just so we’re clear on that 😉 ).
But it’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a full-on meal here… or three! So, that’s what we’re here to do. Welcome to Pinocchio Village Haus!
Have you ever wondered about the German-style architecture of this restaurant for a story that’s set in Italy?
Pinocchio’s creator, Gepetto, is decidedly Italian, but even the Pinocchio atop of the ordering section reminds me a little of a German oompah figurine.
To learn a little more about this unique style choice, check out this guest review for some insight!
Aside from the architecture, other hallmarks at Pinocchio’s are the gorgeous murals depicting characters and scenes from the film.
True, there are no roses with magically falling petals or indoor thunderstorms a la Be Our Guest Restaurant, but if you really take a look at the artwork (entire rooms and murals are dedicated to specific characters), I think [Read more…]
