Review of Nine Dragons

  I recently had the opportunity to meet some friends from New Orleans in Epcot. We had our original reservation at Le Cellier. My mouth was watering for some of their famous cheese soup. Well, I got confused and made the reservation for one less than our party size, and Le Cellier could not accommodate our extra one. So, we went on the hunt for another restaurant to eat at. With it being Food and Wine, one would think we should be able to score a walk up almost anywhere; right? That was just not the case. They decided to try Nine Dragons. I’ve never eaten here because of...

Cooking Disney

Hi all! Today I’ll be taking you through my experience of trying to recreate a Food and Wine Festival inspired dish for dinner. I say “inspired” because I made a few modifications, but the general idea was the same. I visited Food and Wine the first weekend it was open for a very quick trip. For being only 2 people, we actually managed to sample a lot and each had different “new” favorites as well as our “standby” favorites. We did round 1 of the festival right when World Showcase opened at 11:00 AM and crowds were very light (suggestion if you’re going – don’t start with the first...

A Review of ‘The Complete Walt Disney World 2015′

A Review of ‘The Complete Walt Disney World 2015′

  Throughout the years I have had my share of Walt Disney World guidebooks.  Let’s be honest.  The subject matter is close to my heart.  On a leisurely stroll through the bookstore, invariably the first place I head to is the travel section to check out the Walt Disney World books.  Even in recent years, I have fact checked for The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.  I am well aware of the time and effort that goes into having an up-to-date, thorough and accurate product.  Walt Disney World guidebooks on the market are plentiful and not all of them are quite so successful at delivering. Recently, I was...

Disney WAYBACK Machine – Walt at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair Part 3 – It’s a Small World

Disney WAYBACK Machine – Walt at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair Part 3 – It’s a Small World

The second of the four attractions Walt did for the World’s Fair that we will look at is “It’s a Small World”. If there is one truly iconic Disney attraction that would be recognized almost universally, it would arguably be “It’s a Small World”. Did you know that this attraction came very close to never occurring? Walt and WED were already hard at work on the General Electric, Ford and Illinois Pavilions and were even planning a 9 screen CircleVision 360 wide screen exhibit for Kodak’s Pavilion. Although this would have improved upon the existing Disneyland Circarama eleven screen 4:3 format attraction the Kodak pavilion attraction was never completed...

Halloween on the High Seas Photo’s

I recently returned from a cruise on the Disney Fantasy. We had the good fortune of our trip being a part of “Halloween on the High Seas”. I took some pictures to help show off the Halloween decorations that I thought I’d share with you all today. If you would like to hear about this trip please listen to the latest WDW Fan Zone Blogcast, where Diane Butler and I talk about my trip! Share

New Dessert at Boulangerie Patisserie in France, Epcot!

New Dessert at Boulangerie Patisserie in France, Epcot!

Tucked in the back corner of France in Epcot is the delightful sandwich shop and bakery, Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles.  With it’s new (ish) location inside behind the gift shop, it now is larger with more indoor seating (and bathrooms) but it can still get rather crowded.  If you catch it at an odd hour, you will surely find something delicious. On a recent trip, I went for my favorite, the Jambon Beurre Sandwich ($7.50) and a new dessert, the Chocolate Dipped Meringue. The sandwich is on delicious, fresh-baked, hard bread.  If you love bread that you can really sink your teeth into, this is for you!  It is...

Princess Mission 2014

Hi friends! I hope you are having a fantastic week!   I wanted to share with with you a fun activity we did during our most recent trip to Walt Disney World in August 2014!  We decided to go on a Princess Mission…we wanted to meet all of the Disney Princess, plus a few added favorites! (Check out my previous post-http://www.wdwfanzone.com/2014/07/bucket-list-2014-walt-disney-world/) We LOVE meeting the characters during our trips, and since this was my 35th birthday trip, I wanted to see if we could meet as many Princess as we could! My ultimate dream would to be able to get a picture surrounded by the Disney Princess…but that is a dream that...

Disney with a Baby

Disney with a Baby

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about creating a vintage Disney nursery. Well folks, that’s because this Disney fan is going to have her own little Mouseketeer! You heard it right! I’m so very happy to announce that my husband and I are due with our first baby in April 2015!! We are very excited! So, to get back to all things Disney oriented, here’s how this fits in. We were originally planning to go back down to Disney in December 2015 with my inlaws. And now we are going to be taking an 8 month old with us! I am thrilled! I cannot wait to share...
