Curry dishes, meat,. fish, bread, you name it. Tusker House features a multitude of food options.

Tusker House Review

One of the great aspects of dining at Disney World is the ability to eat foods and experience flavors that you wouldn’t normally find where you live and eat day to day. I’m not sure about you, but we certainly get into food ruts in our daily lives and find Disney to be a place where we can branch out. Here in our Tusker House review, we’ll talk about a meal that fits that bill nicely.

Tusker House is a character buffet within Animal Kingdom. In addition to the food, here in our Tusker House review we’ll cover the atmosphere, décor and character interactions. We’ll provide plenty of photos of the food from the buffet line and of course, the characters.

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.

Best of the Disney World Internet – January 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 January 2019 recap.

Each month, as part of this post we’ll give you what we see as some of the top blog posts, YouTube videos, message board discussions, etc. that we thought were fun, informative or helpful – or all of the above!! We’ll also give you our take on what is reviewed, discussed or otherwise mentioned in the video.

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 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.

Wilderness Lodge Bunk Bed Room Review

During a stay at Wilderness Lodge, we were able to sleep in one of the bunk bed rooms. It was our first time staying in any room that features a bunk bed at Disney World. We thought it would be helpful to summarize our time in the Wilderness Lodge bunk bed room as there were some definite pros to it that we didn’t anticipate. There are also some things you should consider before booking that may be negatives depending on your family.

Animal Kingdom FastPass Guide

The Animal Kingdom FastPass system functions much like that of Epcot. It features a tiered FastPass system where the top two attractions are both in the Pandora – World of AVATAR land. Getting your FastPass selections right here can be the difference between spending half your day waiting in line and something more pleasant. Flight of Passage is the headliner attraction here, but you can’t forget about some of the popular FastPass tier 2 attraction too.
