Be Our Guest at Magic Kingdom: A Review

Be Our Guest is the newest restaurant in Magic Kingdom and needless to say it’s popular. Reservations aren’t quite as hard to get as Cinderella’s Royal Table, but it’s close. Demand is huge, and having finally gotten to eat there, I can see why. We actually ate here for both lunch and dinner, which is quick service and table service, respectively. So I’ll merge the experiences into this one review…

Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World: A Review

One day I hope to have written a review for every single resort at Walt Disney World. Each one has their own charm and theme, and I can’t wait to try them all. For our recent trip to Disney World, we decided to try out the Caribbean Beach Resort. Without further ado, here’s what we thought…

Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom: A Review

Cinderella’s Royal Table is the restaurant that resides within Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. I tried to get reservations here during my 2013 trip to no avail, but was able to score some coveted ADRs for my 2015 trip. Without further ado, I’d love to tell you all about it…

Disneyland Trip Report – December 2014

I was down in Disneyland this past weekend with my girlfriend and two of our bff’s, Ken and Abbi. I have not braved Disneyland during the holiday season in quite some time because I am more of an “off-peak” kind of guy, but Ken and Abbi really wanted to go see the decorations so we decided to brave the crowds, too! All in all, it was a very successful trip even if my feet practically fell off by the end of the third day (must be that winter weight…).

We arrived on Friday morning, flying into John Wayne, and when we arrived the airport was getting pounded with what I can only describe as Noah’s Ark level rain. It was tremendous! We were a bit worried that Disneyland was going to be flooded but some how, some way, Disneyland itself was dry as a whistle when we arrived around 11 AM. This was actually quite a good thing, because the rain earlier scared off a lot of the annual pass holders, so crowds were not as bad as they might have been otherwise. We were in the park Friday, Saturday, and Sunday… but enough about logistics, let’s get to the details (behind the fold)!

Biergarten at EPCOT: A Review

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: EPCOT is one of my favorite places to dine when I visit Walt Disney World. I mean, the options are all so much fun and so delicious that it’s often hard to narrow it down to a few during a trip. Today I’ll talk about what is probably one of my top three restaurants in EPCOT: Biergarten!┬áIf you can’t make it to the Hobrauhaus in Munich any time soon, then Biergarten is gonna be a great alternative.

Note: if you’re looking for an overview of all the Disney reviews I’ve done (which can help provide context for scoring) give my review index a quick glimpse.
