Tony’s Town Square Restaurant

Tony’s Town Square Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom is one of our favorite sit down dining choices. It’s not one of the “hot” dining reservations but I believe it’s a great option, especially for families.  It’s located right at the park entrance, on Main Street USA, just to the right as you come through the gates.  Here are the seven reasons I love eating at Tony’s: The theme.  Lady and the Tramp is one of … Continue reading

Beaches & Cream Soda Shop

One of our favorite restaurants at a Walt Disney World resort (outside of the parks) is Beaches & Cream Soda Shop.  It’s located right by Stormalong Bay at the Beach & Yacht Club and while it’s casual and not very expensive, advance dining reservations are definitely a good idea if you don’t want to wait several hours for a table. One reason that it’s hard to get a table without a dining reservation is that … Continue reading

Dinner at ‘Ohana

Every now and then you have to splurge on a really special experience and a dinner at ‘Ohana is definitely worth the trip.  The first challenge is to get a reservation!  If you haven’t booked six months in advance it can be tough to get one of these coveted spots.  My most successful technique has been to check for reservations the week before, especially 24-48 hours in advance.  I’ve gotten a great last-minute reservation with … Continue reading

Harambe Market at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We discovered the new Harambe Market at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on our last visit and I just fell in love with the atmosphere and all the details that the Imagineers worked into the area. We were enjoying the morning Extra Magic Hours a couple of weeks ago and stumbled onto this area when we were leaving Kilimanjaro Safaris.  It’s located in Africa and definitely meets a need for more “themed” quick service dining at Animal … Continue reading

Be Our Guest Breakfast Pre-Park Opening

I absolutely adore the way that Be Our Guest brings you right into the movie, surrounding you with spectacular scenes from Beauty and the Beast.  I’ve shared my experiences with lunch (good), lunch (not so good) and dinner in previous posts.  I was really excited to learn that they were opening the restaurant for breakfast, including the opportunity to make advanced dining reservations (ADRs).  A couple of weeks ago, Eli and I took a mommy … Continue reading

Eating Healthy at Walt Disney World Resort

When you think of eating at Walt Disney World Resort, the first things that come to mind are probably Mickey Ice Cream Bars, Mickey Pancakes, eight inch tall cupcakes and lots of fried treats. But there are a lot of healthy choices too, if you know where to look.  Over the last year, I’ve been trying to find healthier options and I wanted to share my favorites with you. One of my quick service favorites … Continue reading

Be Our Guest – Quick Service Lunch

You may remember my review of dinner at Be Our Guest (if not, check it out here) from our Thanksgiving trip.  On our last visit to Disney for the Princess Half Weekend, we snagged a fast pass plus reservation for lunch at Be Our Guest.  I thought it would be fun to compare lunch (when BoG is quick service) to dinner (when it is a table service restaurant). We were able to check in at … Continue reading

EatTheGreatWideSomewhere: Be Our Guest Restaurant

Be Our Guest Restaurant Review! Most of my posts have revolved around races, running, weight and food.  I thought I might to start sprinkling in a few that are Disney focused without the runDisney twist.  Let me know if you like the addition! Today, I want to highlight my two (yes two) back to back nights at Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom.  We went to Disney for a whole week at Thanksgiving … Continue reading
