The Hottest Restaurant at Disney Springs – Bring Your Eating Pants to The Polite Pig

After an eight hour drive to Disney World (seriously, whose genius idea was that?) we finally arrived at Disney Springs, tired, haggard, weary and absolutely ravenous. After parking in the lime garage at Disney Springs, no easy feat on a Friday night, we made our way to The Polite Pig.  The fourth Orlando-area restaurant of […]

My Breakfast on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland

Located right on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, sits one of the best restaurants on property – the Carnation Café. Nowhere else can you sit under an umbrella at a carnation-adorned table and enjoy the sights and sounds of Main Street. I have eaten lunch at the restaurant before, but a recent vlog by […]

Dining Review: Napa Rose at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

Arguably the premiere dining destination of the Disneyland Resort, Napa Rose was a must-do meal for my boyfriend Chris and I on our first trip out to the west coast parks together. Echoing the elegant arts and crafts style of the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at which it’s located, this upscale eatery features fare […]

Review: Roaring Fork Quick Service at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

With the exception of Capt. Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, it seems like Disney has never been able to perfect quick service dining at their deluxe resorts. I had high hopes that Roaring Fork, the main quick service location at Wilderness Lodge, would be greatly improved after being closed for months for a refurb, […]

Club 33 – An Overview and a Few Tips

It’s fair to say (and perhaps an understatement) that for many Disney fans, a visit to Club 33 is a highly sought after experience. Some people may dream of one day getting tickets to attend the Super Bowl to watch their team play, but not us. But for us deep-rooted Disneyphiles, dining in the exclusive […]

A Texan’s Take on Le Chefs de France

Growing up in Central Texas, I had very little exposure to French Cuisine.  Aside from French Onion soup, (a seemingly mandatory menu item at most restaurants), my knowledge of French food was limited to what I had seen on TV. Hollywood’s portrayal of French restaurants left me with a mental picture of highbrow eateries filled with over-the-top culinary concoctions, and […]

Review: Shake Shack on International Drive

The B52s didn’t sing about this shack, but there is a place on International Drive that is just as worthy of attention. Featuring a menu of gourmet burgers, hot dogs, fries, and frozen custard, Shake Shack opened up just this past August in the I-Drive 360 complex. There was much rejoicing when it did. I […]

Review: Chuy’s on International Drive

Fighting for attention along the bustle of International Drive is Chuy’s, a restaurant of vibrant colors, lights, and campy pieces. It’s been hailed by some as the Tex-Mex destination of Orlando, bringing these legendary flavors of Texan culture to Mickey Mouse’s doorstep. However, with oddities like welded foliage and a 12 ft. tall bust of Elvis […]
