Sassagoula Floatworks has recently been "refurbished". I should remember the date (or at least the month) because I remember attending the grand reopening ceremony. It was really early in the morning. Too early for me to remember anything. I distinctly remember being completely underwhelmed by how bland the new interior was, and how much powdered sugar there was everywhere. (Because you see, everyone gets Beignets in the morning, and the place was packed.)So it's been a few months now, and I figured right in-between lunch and ... ( read more ... )

I stopped by Pinocchio's Village Haus in Fantasyland to check out their Chicken Parmesan Pasta the other day, and you know what? It's actually quite good! Now it's not going to replace your Aunt Rossa's made from scratch Chicken Parmesan, but this is counter service, so with that in mind… I was pleasantly surprised. The breaded chicken they are using seemed to be a decent sized, all-white meat cutlet. The pasta is a Penne variety that was cooked correctly (at least on this visit), and the lightly seasoned tomato sauce was ... ( read more ... )

Way far back in the oddly defined "Muppet Courtyard" area at Hollywood Studios you will find PizzeRizzo… a quick service / counter service dining location that serves… pizza (although that was probably obvious from the name of the place). I'm sure once the new areas of Hollywood Studios open up, this area will make more sense and more importantly, pick up a ton more foot traffic. It will probably serve as a transitional area between what will be the StarWars area and ToyStory areas of the park. Getting back to ... ( read more ... )

Yak and Yeti is an important restaurant in Disney's ever-growing Animal Kingdom. There are currently only three and a half table-service restaurants to choose from in-park. Tiffins, while being amazingly good, is also an equally expensive "signature" dining location. Tusker House is a character dining buffet experience and no matter what you think about the food… you're not always in the mood for the craziness that comes with character dining, or the constant up and down of buffet dining. Rainforest Café is my ... ( read more ... )

Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom was originally designed as a quick counter service type spot in this "African" area of Animal Kingdom. Now that the larger "Harambe Market" is just around the corner, it seems Tamu Tamu has been turned into a dessert and Dole Whip® stand. As such, it's one of the most elaborate looking quick snack stands out there. Occupying prime real estate on the corner of Dawa Street and Mahindi Avenue (yes, I just made that up) gives the location a tremendous amount of foot traffic... and so it ... ( read more ... )

The Garden Grill Restaurant is located on the upper level of The Land pavilion in Future World. The "upper" level in this case, is actually the level that you enter the Land pavilion on… you would have to go down one floor to find the cue for Soarin' and the "Living with the Land" boat ride. The Garden Grill did have a lunch period, and then it didn't, and now it does again! I for one, couldn't be happier about that because lunch seems to strike a nice balance cost and experience. About the only thing different between ... ( read more ... )

The Smiling Crocodile is one of the small "quick snack" kiosks that you'll find when walking around Animal Kingdom. There's quite a few of them actually, and I for one… wish they were a bit more identifiable. It's a cool idea… having what amounts to little food and wine type booths up year-round, for an Animal Kingdom style food stroll. The kiosk I stopped by yesterday (The Smiling Crocodile) just changed up it's menu about a week ago, and I wanted to try out a couple of the new items. On the menu now, are three ...

One of these days I'm going to get back around to trying some seafood dishes at Columbia Harbor House! Today though, we're taking a look at the Broccoli Peppercorn Salad. Why? Because maybe everyone in your group doesn't want fast food seafood... all at the same time. Answering the question… so what else do they have at Columbia Harbor House? Well, they have a Broccoli Peppercorn Salad, and you know what? It's not bad. It's easily on-par with any fast food style designer salad we've found outside the gates. Is it up there ...

Celebration at the Top - Savor, Sip and Sparkle is a new event that takes place on Sunday Evenings only in the private Sonoma and Napa Rooms of the California Grill. It's not clear just how many of these events are going to take place. There are six more Sundays on the schedule for now… the event may be extended, or it may not, it's hard to tell at this point. This is for all intent and purpose, a firework watching party... but with some really good food and beverage offerings being supplied by the California Grill ... ( read more ... )

Jakes Beer Dinner is a great little event that takes place a couple times a year at Jake's American Bar, which is in the Loews Royal Pacific Resort. The popular restaurant has a private event space called the "Clipper Room" which can seat (by my best guess) between 60 and 80 guests. The format is solid... an invited brewery presents four or five beers and the chef's at Jake's create dishes that pair with, compliment, and/or highlight the charter of the beer. Ladies, if you've tried getting your guys to vertical wine pairings ... ( read more ... )
