T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rainforest Café – Yay Or Nay?

In preparation for our Disney World trip (coming up in a mere 58 days!!!), I have been doing a little “light” reading – The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2018 – and when I say light I really mean anything but – it’s a thick book full of mostly text, 864 pages jam packed full of anything and everything you need to know before heading to WDW (and some things you didn’t know you needed to know, too!)

Knowledge wise – a lot of what’s in the book is stuff I already know, but it’s great to brush up on the things that are new since the last time I went (almost 5 years ago eek!). One thing I came across in my reading that I am hoping to check out in person for the first time is the Rainforest Café

Ok – I know – it’s not exactly a “Disney original” restaurant, and the food is probably nothing special, etc etc – believe me, I have heard it all (mostly from my husband who has thus far refused to go, since there are so many more Disney unique places to dine), BUT – bottom line is, I think our son would LOVE IT:

Even the entrance is fun – all the trees and you can see the Elephant check in desk from outside

The bar is my favorite – I see many photo ops in my future involving these stools

A bar with animal seats, giant trees, animals everywhere – what’s not to love? Oh – and the kid’s menu items go along with the theme too – “Jusassic chicken tidbits”, “Gorilla grilled cheese delight”, “Lava Mud” dessert, and the list goes on

Ok so – maybe it’s a bit tacky, and unoriginal (since it is a chain restaurant), but – who cares? It looks fun, and I figure – we will go by it as we leave Animal Kingdom around lunch time, and if there’s not much of a wait, why not give it a go? It will be fun for the kid, and hey, they serve alcohol, so it will be fun for us adults too (kidding!)

What about you – have you tried either of the Disney World Rainforest Café locations? What did you think?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Land Means New FOOD!

I recently wrote about the newest expansion opening this week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Pandora: The World Of Avatar – an immersive land that includes new rides and attractions, and it of course also includes new FOOD (which, if I’m being honest, is about 75% the reason I would even go anywhere ever – is for the food)

Check out what Pandora has to offer for your palette:

PandoraFood1

“Pods” – Steamed buns filled with either a cheeseburger mixture or vegetable curry, and served with root veggie chips and a veggie slaw. At breakfast time you can get them filled with eggs, bacon and spinach!

Pandorafood4

“Build Your Own” Bowls start with a base of quinoa, potato hash, rice, or kale salad, and then topped with a protein – beef, chicken, fish, or tofu, and the sauce of your choice – onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette, or herb dressing

Pandorafood2

This amazingly beautiful dessert is a blueberry cream cheese mousse topped with passionfruit curd

PandoraFood3

I am a big fan of boba – the little gelatin like balls found in bubble tea – so I will definitely want to try one of these new frozen drinks!

I can’t wait to see and do everything that Pandora has to offer – and I am especially looking forward to all the TASTES it will have to share, too!

TGIF!
