Like its namesake, the Floridian Brown Derby has a Spanish mission façade and is filled with caricatures of famous stars. One of the signature dishes is the Cobb Salad, which mimics the recipe…

Welcome Home Dinner at Olivia’s Cafe

Welcome Home Dinner at Olivia’s Cafe

Our house has been fairly lonely this past week as my husband has been away on a business trip. We were overjoyed to pick him up at the airport, even though the Orlando airport is a mad house on Friday night. Driving home, we decided to stop by for dinner at Olivia’s Cafe in Walt Disney World’s Old Key West. Despite being a Friday night, the restaurant was sparsely populated and we were seated quite quickly. The nautical themed dinner…

A Supercalifragilistic Breakfast

A Supercalifragilistic Breakfast

Enchanting is the word I would use to describe the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare located in Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort. Dining guests meet five characters including: Alice, The Mad Hatter, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and Mary Poppins. Our whole family enjoyed meeting the characters and listening to their spot on impressions, especially Mary Poppins, who was “practically perfect in every way.” The customer service and all you care to enjoy buffet were wonderful. The buffet features…

Chef Mickey’s

Chef Mickey’s

We were finally able to catch an open brunch reservation at Chef Mickey’s, Walt Disney World’s popular restaurant located at the Contemporary Resort. Even though my oldest has wanted to go to this restaurant for some time, the scarcity of open reservations and his fear of high ceilings have held him back from enjoying this experience. I was proud that he was able to work through his fear, so we could enjoy the restaurant together as a family.    When…

Trail’s End Restaurant 

Trail’s End Restaurant 

Located at one of our favorite Disney resorts, Fort Wilderness, Trail’s End Restaurant provides a tasty buffet for breakfast, dinner and brunch on certain dates. Trail’s End is reminiscent of a pioneer chow hall with mounted animals, pot-bellied stove, split-log walls, and beamed ceilings. If you’re lucky you might hear the dinner triangle round up some birthday and anniversary wishes. We visited Trails End for dinner and enjoyed the all you care to eat buffet with peel and eat shrimp,…

Grand Floridian Cafe

Grand Floridian Cafe

The Grand Floridian Cafe is located at the luxurious Grand Floridian Resort in the Magic Kingdom area of Walt Disney World. With our 20% pass holder discount, I thought the prices were fairly reasonable. The adult entrees are between $15-$35, with kids meals on average $8-$10. The restaurant provides a full allergy menu which offers dozens of selections. Of course, if you have questions or concerns you can speak to the chef. My son, who is gluten free, was quite…

Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival 

Spring comes early to central Florida when Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival is in town. This year the Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 1 to May 29. A visit to the Flower and Garden festival is a great accompaniment to a unit on botany and butterflies. Last year we brought our nature journals and sketched some of the many plants that Disney showcases during their festival. However, this year we opted to stroll around and enjoy the…

Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show 

Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show 

Hidden in the palm trees and lush foliage of Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Resort lies the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. As our family waited in line for the show, we felt like we had been transported to the Polynesian Islands. We enjoyed the mild Florida March weather and the view of the Seven Seas Lagoon.  We were given leis and then the hostess showed us to our table which was already set with tropical mixed greens in mango poppyseed…
