Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano Gluten Free Review

While going gluten free was relatively easy for me (it is amazing the motivation you can find after realizing how much better you feel when not eating certain foods!), one of the foods I miss the most is “true” Italian food. Pastas, breads, pizzas…without question, Italian food is my favorite type of cuisine to not only eat but also to cook. The gluten free substitutes satisfy the cravings but it just isn’t quite the same.

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano Review

Nestled back in the Grand Avenue area of Hollywood Studios, you’ll find an Italian restaurant that blends old Italy and California. At least that’s its claim. Here in our Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano review we’ll walk you through this hidden away culinary experience.

Our review will include our thoughts on the atmosphere of the restaurant, the food, and its theme. As usual, it will also include lots of pictures.

Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine at Hollywood & Vine Review

This meal is thoroughly and completed designed for the toddler through early elementary-aged set that the Disney Junior shows are created for. The giant photo backdrop at the entrance features the characters that the diners will be meeting, plus there is Disney Junior themed décor throughout. The music loop features all Disney Junior music of current and “old”. So be forewarned that some of those songs could get stuck in your head for quite a while after breakfast.

Hollywood & Vine Gluten Free Breakfast Review

This is the next installment reviewing my experiences eating gluten free around Disney World. Here in our Hollywood & Vine gluten free breakfast review, I’ll cover the food but other topics related to the restaurant as well. This will include my experience, service, options and anything else I think others trying to eat gluten free may care about.

Disney World Restaurant Reviews

Did you know there are over 300 restaurants in all of Disney World? And if you split some of the different meals in the restaurants, there are lots of variations!

This is essentially a catalog of all our Disney World restaurant reviews. You won’t find a lot of detail and information on this particular page. The details are in the individual reviews. Our restaurant reviews feature pictures of the restaurants and food, coupled with our thoughts on the food, overall experience, atmosphere and if we think the restaurant is a compelling enough value to make it worth it to eat at.

Hollywood Studios FastPass Guide

Within Hollywood Studios there are 14 attractions that allow you to use the FastPass system. Given the opening of Toy Story Land and the impending opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the FastPass system just got a whole lot more important at Hollywood Studios. We’ve already seen multi hour waits for Toy Story Land attractions. Those wait times will look like child’s play when Galaxy’s Edge opens up in the fall.

Using your FastPass well will can make the difference between a half to three quarters long day or a long and painful day at Hollywood Studios. In this post we’ll tell you all about the FastPass system and how to use it at Hollywood Studios.

Best of the Disney World Internet – December 2018

Welcome to the next installment of a monthly series we post. This is a bit of a recap post. We spend a lot of time reading and watching videos about Disney World to stay up on the latest news and trends. And maybe, just because there’s some fun in it for us! We call this series, the “Best of the Disney World Internet” and this is our December 2018 recap.

The stage of the Disney Junior Dance Party at Disney World.

Disney Junior Dance Party Review

Yesterday, Disney’s Hollywood Studios debuted their new show geared toward younger kids, called the Disney Junior Dance Party. We just happened to be in Hollywood Studios, so we made a point to swing by and check out the show.
In case you weren’t aware, Disney World had a long running show called Disney Junior – Live On Stage! Disney announced that the show was closing in late 2018, however it would be replaced by a new show.
Many of us who had kids that were a perfect demographic for the stage show were sad to hear of its closing. Since they were born, we’ve tried to take Anna and Elsa to the show each time we’ve been to Disney World. Now the girls are starting to age out of the target audience here, so it isn’t the end of the world.

Woody’s Lunch Box Review

With the opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, all Disney fans were interested to see what dining options would come with the new land. Some of that curiosity was due to this being a new area within the park. However, if we’re being honest, some of the curiosity was because the food situation in Hollywood Studios is pretty weak, especially on the counter service side. Woody’s Lunch Box was announced as the new counter service offering located in Toy Story Land, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
