One of several fine dining meal options, California Grill is a fabulous restraunt, made better by it's view of Magic Kingdom.

California Grill Dinner Review

Early in our marriage, I convinced Mike to spend a few nights at Disney World so I could share my love of the World and show him that Disney World can be a grown-up experience too. Along with two rounds of golf and a visit to the spa, I sought out some of the more refined dining experiences that Disney World has to offer. One of the meals we chose was California Grill, and after our first truly exceptional experience, it became almost a tradition to visit it on each trip.

Best of the Disney World Internet – February 2019

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 February 2019 recap.

A view of the Polynesian Village resort rooms.

Polynesian Village Resort Room Review

Within the confines of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort there are a handful of different rooms available. While the rooms may be slightly different, they all have two important common traits. First, they are at one of the best themed resorts in all of Disney World. Second, they all come with a hefty price tag. Given that, we think you have an easy choice of which room you should book if you stay at this resort. But everything is in the eye of the beholder, so we’ll do a more detailed Polynesian Village Resort room review in this post.

Epcot Characters

Epcot comes with a significant number of character meet and greets. There are several Epcot characters that are unique to the park, but there are still plenty that can be found in other parks. So, don’t feel like you need to get your meet and greet groove on when you are here. You can afford to be choosy if needed. Here in our guide to Epcot characters, we’ll tell you who’s where in the park and roughly when they meet!

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Review

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Disney World is a deluxe level resort that is themed in a Polynesian style. At least a 1970s era style. That’s not to suggest the resort is dated, far from it actually. As we’ll discuss more here in our Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Review, the theming around the resort is some of the best we have experienced at Disney World.

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.
