Never Settle for Mediocre Fare at Disney


I don’t know what’s more fun about Walt Disney World, the park-hopping or the eating. Attractions are great, but new ones take years to build. Menus, restaurants, and food booths change quickly, and it’s a big reason to come back again and again. While there are lots of food staples that should be great but […]

We had a chance to preview the food of the upcoming Lamplight Lounge that will be opening on June 23rd along with Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure, and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed!

A Quick Review of the New Disneyland Food and Beverage Mobile Order Option


Disneyland has finally started to make a mobile food and beverage ordering service like the one at Walt Disney World available for Annual Passholders. I had the chance to try out the new feature on its second day of availability, and here are my thoughts: I arrived at the Disneyland Park entrance at 1:45 PM on […]


A First-Timer’s Experience at Disney Cruise Line’s Palo Brunch


If you hang around the DISboards long enough, you will eventually hear of the restaurant Palo, which has a residence on each ship currently in the Disney Cruise Line fleet.  Palo’s brunch offerings are the stuff of legend. They’re made even more legendary by the fact that brunch seatings are traditionally only offered on itineraries […]

Review: Farewell Lunch at ESPN Zone


Downtown Disney (located in the Disneyland Resort) has numerous lunch options. Today, we decided to say goodbye to ESPN Zone, which will be closing its doors this summer along with other dining options to make way for Disney’s new Four-Diamond Hotel, which is set to open in 2021. Saying goodbye is such sweet sorrow. I remember […]


2018 ‘Ohana Dinner Review


On May 2, 2018, myself, Charles Boda, Pete Werner, and two Dis Unplugged podcast listeners had the opportunity to have dinner at ‘Ohana, the all-you-care-to-eat feast at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. This restaurant is beloved by many, but recently it has had several bad reviews on the disboards, so our purpose of visiting was to go […]


Can You Dine Alone at ‘Ohana and Other Walt Disney World Buffet Restaurants?


Dining alone is a weird taboo that honestly we should all get over. It’s especially great in Walt Disney World, whether your group has split up to do different things, or you’re an Orlando resident peckish for your fave Disney dish. The servers are always friendly, and happy to recommend excellent dishes. Not many restaurants […]


Disney Fantasy Sit-Down Dining: A Beginner’s Tale


As a first-time cruiser this past spring break, I was a little nervous about the dining aspect. For one, I did not want to be assigned a table with another family; I was worried I’d spend my evenings engaged in small talk with strangers rather than relaxing with my family. Second, I didn’t want to […]


The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom: A First-Timer’s Review


I’ve been to Magic Kingdom many times — more times than I can count — and yet, I’ve always passed over The Plaza Restaurant, which is tucked into a quiet corner on Main Street, U.S.A. Even after I had learned of its existence, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago, on an unusually busy night in February, […]
