Disney-Inspired St. Patrick’s Day Dinner

Welcome to those of you joining me from My Dreams of Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail. And thank you to Magical Blogorail Red for letting me join you this month to celebrate one of my favorite holidays – St. Patrick’s Day! Since everyone is a little bit Irish this time of year, I thought I’d share what I’ll be serving my own family: a Disney-inspired St. Patrick’s day dinner. Corned Beef & Cabbage If you happen to be in Epcot, you can sample this classic Irish dish at the Rose & Crown Pub in the UK Pavilion in Epcot. If you’re at home, it couldn’t be easier to prepare!

Romantic Disney Dining: Be Our Guest

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. To celebrate Valentine’s day, we’re sharing our picks for romantic Disney dining. Disneyland was originally designed with families in mind – to be a place where parents and children could have fun together.

Atmosphere Almost every restaurant at the Walt Disney World resort is designed to immerse you in a specific place, time, and circumstance. Be Our Guest is no exception. The atmosphere makes Be Our Guest ideal for a romantic evening – the main...

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the ones I mean…where every day seems like Monday? I won’t bore you with the details, except that I’m pretty sure the Snow Queen is holding Spring hostage until I go see and review Frozen! To celebrate Foodie Friday, I’m linking up with the Favorite Food Friday blog hop hosted by Disney Day by Day, and sharing my perfect Disney-inspired snack: Nothing fancy, but everything warm and wonderful: French Press coffee (in a Disney press, of course!) and a piece of English Toffee I brought home from the Main Street Confectionery at the Magic Kingdom. Does it get any better than this on another “it’s how cold out there??” January afternoon? Thanks for joining me for Foodie Friday – what’s your favorite way to bring Disney comfort food home?

Disney Dining Tips for Special Dietary Needs

“What are we going to eat?” is a major question for any family on vacation, but when you add in food allergies and special diets, it becomes a lot more crucial. It’s no secret that we’re devoted foodies around here, or that there are certain foods that we don’t go anywhere near. With a family of 6, Celiac Disease, nut allergy, mollusk allergy, and “I only eat these 5 foods”-itis, here are my top Disney dining tips for families with special dietary needs. There are three basic levels of Disney dining: Table Service, Quick Service, and Snacks. They’re all delicious (of course!), but they all have their quirks. I’ll show you how to navigate all three. Disney Table Service Dining with Special Diets Table service dining is the most expensive of the dining options at Walt Disney World. It includes any sit-down restaurant where a cast member comes to...
