When the Disney Dining Plan Makes Sense


When you’re planning a Walt Disney World vacation there are four major areas of cost that you always have to consider: Travel, Resort, Park Tickets and Food. While there are many opinions on what resorts are the best, when and how to get to Orlando and how many days of park tickets are best for […]


Dining at Disney World: How Do You Know What to Book, 6 Months Out?


So, have you booked your vacation well ahead of time, or have you just booked at short notice?  How on earth do you decide what restaurants to book, and at what time? Quick service or table service?  Dining plan or pay as you go? Do I need to decide 6 months out (if I can)? […]


Is La Hacienda de San Angel Worth It for IllumiNations?


When visiting Epcot one thing to surely not miss is IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, the nighttime show. It’s absolutely spectacular; fireworks, an illuminated globe and even the World Showcase itself are all part of it. And as with all nighttime shows, there are options to enjoy a meal while watching it in Epcot too. I’ve […]


Dining Review: ‘Ohana – Is This the Best 1-Credit Dining Experience at Disney World?


My expectations were very high for my first visit to ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. It was a brief journey from the Magic Kingdom on the monorail. It was Day 2 of our vacation; we were staying offsite, and this was a special celebration evening meal. Some of our party were celebrating 25 years since they […]


Five Non-Character Dining Options in Disney World That Will Still Entertain Your Kids!

How Far Can Your ‘Snack Credit’ Go?


FacebookTwitterGoogle+ When you plan to use the Disney Dining Plan do you really value your snack credits? Typically I feel that more emphasise (naturally so) will always go on the meal credits as they are going to be worth more. Do not be fooled into seeing your snack credit as an insignificant extra however, as they can […]


When your favorite Disney dining disappoints: A Review


A few weeks ago, I found myself strolling through Disney Springs with some friends and that all too familiar stomach grumble began to kick in. It was around lunchtime, and it was time for a game time decision: where to eat? To give you some background, I love me some Morimoto Asia. Not only do […]


A Couple’s Guide to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort


All Aboard! If you’re like us and have never stayed on a cruise ship before, staying at the Yacht Club has a real ‘Grand Ship’ feel about it. The long, wide corridors that lead away from the lobby remind me of what I would expect a big ship to feel like. The wood floors and […]


If I could visit only one pavilion in EPCOT…


Where would you choose if you could only visit one pavilion at Epcot? For me, it would be the Land Pavilion. The land pavilion has everything; three attractions, a tour, a large food court for counter service, and for table service, a family style buffet with characters.  There is one thing that this pavilion does NOT have that […]
