We were all looking forward to our stay at the new Riviera Resort and of course, to check out Topolino‘s Terrace. The “Breakfast a la Art” sounded like so much fun, especially with Mickey and friends wearing outfits unique to this meal. I went in with high expectations, but those expectations were more than surpassed with the fantastic character interactions and the delicious food offerings. If you want to read more about the restaurant and our overall experience (including a Magical Moment that brought three of the four of us to tears), please read Mike’s full Topolino’s Terrace Character Breakfast review.

Throughout the year, Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios hosts special character meals for lunch and dinner. The theme of the meal changes depending on the time of year. At Christmas, the character meal is known as Minnie’s Holiday Dine. As you might guess, it is a Christmas themed meal. Here in our Minnie’s Holiday Dine review, we’ll tell you what you can expect at this special character meal, including our thoughts on the quality of the experience, character interactions, and of course, the food. We’ll include pictures of it all along the way.
It feels like once or twice during each trip we make to Disney World, we experience what many call a “magical moment.” While that is an excellent description in many instances, there are a few select times when it doesn’t feel like that description truly captures the magic of an experience. This is one of those times, and hopefully, my words in our Topolino’s Terrace Character Breakfast review can convey why. Formally known as Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends, this character breakfast review will cover our thoughts on the meal and character interactions, complete with pictures of it all.
When Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa opened in 1988, it immediately became the “it” resort at Disney World. The Grand Floridian is a deluxe level resort and considered the flagship among the Disney-owned resort properties. Here in our Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa review, we’ll look at this resort, giving you our thoughts dining, transportation, rooms, pools, and more. As usual, we’ll have tons of photos and some video of the resort.
When the Christmas season approaches, Magic Kingdom becomes a joyous holiday-themed park. In conjunction with this festive transformation, Magic Kingdom also hosts Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a hard ticket event that you have to pay for above and beyond your regular park admission. But guess what, even paying for the party doesn’t get you into everything. Oh no, there is another hard ticket event known as Tony’s Most Merriest Town Square Party.
As the temperatures at Disney World drop and the holidays approach, Magic Kingdom enters the best time of year. At least in our opinion. The Christmas décor, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and pleasant temperatures are just a few of the things that make this time of year special. One of the other things we love are the holiday treats and snacks at Magic Kingdom. While these have a more Christmas treat feel to them, they are actually available in early November all the way through early January.
After you take a spin on Expedition Everest, you may be interested in grabbing a bite to eat, or maybe you’ll need a drink! Or perhaps you are soaked after getting off of Kali River Rapids, and you want to sit a minute and dry off? You can accomplish either of these if you grab a bite at Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés while touring Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s situated right next to the entrance of Kali River Rapids in the Asia section of the park. Here in our Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés review, we’ll tell you about our dining experience at this counter service restaurant.
Frontera Cocina is a Mexican inspired restaurant that you will find in the Town Center section of Disney Springs. Beyond the food, the most notable thing about Frontera Cocina is that the restaurant is the vision of celebrity chef Rick Bayless. Here in our Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs review, we’ll cover our experience dining here, including thoughts on the food, atmosphere. We’ll pepper in several pictures along the way too!
Disney’s Beach Club Resort opened in 1990 as one of the original four Disney World Epcot area resorts. The design of the Beach Club was inspired by then Disney CEO Michael Eisner’s childhood visits to various Northeast beach towns. Here in our Disney’s Beach Club Resort review, we’ll cover our thoughts on the theming of the resort, room types, pricing, amenities, dining, and more. As usual, this review will feature plenty of photos of the resort.
Disney’s Beach Club Resort is a deluxe level Disney World resort that sits on Crescent Lake. It has a sister resort known as Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Many people actually consider them one resort, but they are technically two. Beach Club is the fun-loving and chill sister in the resort relationship, while Yacht Club is the more formal resort of the two. Being right next to each other comes with benefits, like the dining options of Yacht Club give Beach Club more options than your typical Disney World resort. They also share more amenities, but we’ll cover that later in our Beach Club Resort review.
