My suspicions were correct! I hope you got your chance to say goodbye to Portobello at Disney Springs because it has been confirmed to not be returning at the end of its originally announced refurbishment. Just like Fulton’s Crab House, the restaurant will be undergoing a full make-over and be coming back with a brand new name, menu, and from the looks of it, will look a bit different as well.
The Portobello restaurant at Disney Springs closed last week for what was originally announced to be a half year’s refurbishment. It was to be coming back with a newly redesigned menu featuring family-style offerings and new Italian craft beers and wines. Read the rest of this entry
Dates for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party have officially been announced!
On Wednesday, I had the opportunity and pleasure to be among the first to sample the offerings at the Satu’li Canteen thanks to a Cast Member preview. As you may know, the Satu’li Canteen is located in the new land, Pandora – The World of Avatar. The new restaurant is a fast-casual style offering and, from what we could tell, is located on the right side of the land. So here is our brief experience and early review! We weren’t allowed to take pictures during the preview, so all food pictures are official photos Read the rest of this entry
Well, it finally came true. DisneyQuest is officially closing forever on July 3rd to ~ eventually ~ make way for The NBA Experience! Originially announced in 2015 to much shock and confusion, the project went silent only months later and was thought to have died. And yet, here we are a year later, again surprised to find out the project is alive and well. Read the rest of this entry

Well 2016 has come and gone and what a year it was for Florida theme parks. Both Busch Gardens and SeaWorld premiered outstanding coasters for their parks. Universal Orlando managed to bring Kong back home, but to incredibly mixed reviews. And Disney was all over the place with new shows at almost every park (some good, some awful), a new and revamped E-Ticket attraction for Epcot, an attempt to make Animal Kingdom a night time park, and new Star Wars offerings at Hollywood Studios including an incredibly impressive fireworks spectacular!
Now, with 2017 here, we have a number of things to anticipate at locations across Florida! Ranging from VR roller coasters to new attractions and technologically advanced lands to an entire water park, this coming year should be quite exciting. So here is our count down of what we’re most looking forward to seeing in 2017! Read the rest of this entry
Are you a fan of the Magic Kingdom Train Station Welcome show? Well I’d catch it soon before it’s gone forever! That’s right, Walt Disney World has decided to retire the show this coming January!
Starting January 9th, Guests will now be able to enter the Magic Kingdom park and stroll down Main Street U.S.A. early, before the actual scheduled opening time of the park. This will allow Guests the opportunity for photo ops, breakfast offerings and even some light shopping before gathering in front of Cinderella’s Castle for a brand new Welcome Show located on the Castle Forecourt Stage.

Have you ever resort hopped around the Seven Seas Lagoon using the WDW monorail as your transportation? Perhaps to enjoy some bar hopping and maybe sample a few bites to eat at different locations? Did you ever want to have someone take care of all of the details for you? Well, now you can with the Highway in the Sky Dine Around!
Just in case you thought Disney wasn’t offering enough up-charge or gimmicky food offerings, or doing everything they can to squeeze every penny from its Guests, now you can pay $150 for a five course meal (including alcohol) around all three Seven Seas Lagoon resorts and then finish the night off with Wishes fireworks. Check out the official description below! Read the rest of this entry
Disney is trying really hard to turn Disney Springs into a full out destination for Guests and I have to admit, they’re doing a pretty good job. Filled with shops and restaurants of all kinds, live entertainment, and two brand new addition for this Christmas season – The Christmas Tree Trail and now this amazing drone show called Starbright Holidays.
The show features 300 flying drones displaying LED lights as they soar over the lake next to Disney Springs. Throughout the show, the drones form different shapes in the sky, such as a Christmas tree and an angel, all while flying to an original Disney arrangement of classic holiday songs, which were recorded by a full orchestra. It should be noted this is the first time a drone show of this caliber has ever been performed in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry
This year, Disney Springs added a brand new attraction to its area for this holiday season. Located at the very east end of the Marketplace where the bus stops used to be is the Christmas Tree Trail. This is a simple walk through attraction featuring multiple Christmas trees each decorated to represent a specific Disney character or film. It is completely free and a perfect attraction for the entire family. When you walk through, they play a wide variety of Christmas songs and even make it snow from above!
Last night, we got to experience this great Christmas attraction and take photos of everything. While I’m not sure how popular this will prove to be as I haven’t seen it heavily advertised and it wasn’t very crowded when we walked through, I’m hoping all of that changes and this attraction returns for next year!
