Bourbon Lovers, Rejoice! Disney World has created an event JUST for you – a take on the “Drink Around The World” concept that people love over at Epcot. Restaurants at WDW’s Disney Springs are taking part in this with new and creative food and drink pairings starring – you guessed it, BOURBON!

Disney has this to say about the event, which runs May 1-June 17th: “Kick-start your spring by discovering an all-new bourbon-inspired experience at Disney Springs, where guests ages 21 and older can partake in unique beverages and food pairings. Meander through the many shops and restaurants throughout the area and find your favorites!

Each of these drinks has been carefully paired with a delicious dish, and there’s even a map that shows where to find all of them! Whether you’re a bourbon aficionado, or just enjoy sipping and savoring new drinks, this experience is perfect for an afternoon stroll or a night out with friends.”

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 18 Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World In 2018

As a Disney LOVER – I don’t need any excuse/reason to visit Walt Disney World – I would go anytime, anyplace, no questions asked. BUT – in case you need some convincing – check out some of these Top Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World in 2018:

18 reasons1

THE OPENING OF TOY STORY LAND! This is one I am personally pretty pumped about – as my family and I are headed there in September, and my son is a BIG Toy Story fan – he loves his Buzz and Woody, and he will go nuts at seeing them life size at Hollywood Studios!

18 reasons 2

Star Wars Fans will be glad to hear that there will be TONS of new stuff themed after the franchise coming to the Parks in 2018: props from The Last Jedi will be on display at the Star Wars Launch Bay in Hollywood Studios, an immersive virtual reality experience at Disney Springs, and two new destinations have been added to the Star Tours Ride, too!

18 reasons4 18 reasons 3

NEW FOOD – Disney Springs is opening EIGHT new dining locations in 2018 – to include The Edison – a restaurant/bar/lounge created from an old power plant with dazzling “Edison-Era” décor throughout –with a larger than life clock tower greeting you at the entrance

There is SO MUCH to look forward to when you’re planning a Disney World vacation – all the great things you will get to experience, see, eat, do – but in case you needed even more convincing – here’s the full list of the top 18 reasons to head there this year (courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Inside Baseline – WDW’s Newest Beer Spot!

BaseLine Tap House opened last month in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios – and I personally was THRILLED to hear the news – a cool spot to grab a craft beer and awesome pretzel – I’m in!

Check it out:

Baseline8

Baseline5

Baseline6

(You may have noticed I included the pretzels twice – that’s not a mistake – that’s just how good they look – I had to give them double props!)

Ok, truth be told I am not much of a beer fan myself – but my husband is – so much so that I am excited for him – to have a place to go and check out beers that he otherwise might not get to try is the perfect vacation activity! Lucky for me – they serve wine too (score!)

Can’t wait to check this place out when we head to Disney World next year!
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!

My List of Disney Lists

disney-world-vacation-planning

I like to make lists. That is no secret, and I do not apologize for it. Organization is important – and it’s especially important when you’re taking your family on a vacation! Forgetting something (like your cell phone charger or spare camera battery…) can impact your entire trip, so I find its best to plan ahead as much as possible. I like to make SEVERAL different lists when preparing for my Walt Disney World vacations – here’s a rundown of them:

-Souvenir List – having been to WDW many times, I know what kinds of souvenirs they have, and what kinds of things I can actually enjoy/get a lot of use out of. Kitchen items, mugs, playing cards, pens – these are the kinds of things I like to plan to buy, and having a list of what I might want to get helps keep my budget on track. I use the Disney Store website to help ballpark costs of some of the items, which helps too!

-Budget – Ok, this one isn’t really a “list”, but its still a REALLY important part of vacation planning – knowing how much things cost and about how much you will need to save is imperative. Some things I always include in a Disney trip budget are: hotel, park tickets, food costs (don’t forget tips and “adult” drinks too!), souvenirs, transportation, and incidentals (someone loses their hat, or we run out of sunscreen, etc)

-Packing list – You HAVE to make a list of what’s going to go in your suitcase – you don’t want to forget anything important! I like to make the list a few weeks before the trip, and I do it on my phone so that I can add items as I think of them. I also like to check the weather so that I know what I can expect – things like ponchos and sunscreen are always on my list, and I like to make sure I have some snacks for traveling and all my necessary chargers too. Now that I have a son too, packing has become this HUGE undertaking –and I now need a separate list so I can make sure I have everything he needs too – so if you have kids, packing lists are even more important

-Park Items – There are some items you will want to make sure you are toting along on your Park days – sunscreen, assorted sizes of Ziploc baggies, ponchos, snacks, sunglasses, and a lightweight hoodie are some of the things that go into the backpack we bring when we head to one of the WDW theme parks

-“Must-Do’s” – Before you go to Disney World, check out their official list of rides/attractions and go over it with your family. Decide which ones are on your “must do” list and make sure you have that handy while at the Parks. This should be a pretty short list – as you don’t want to try and do too much in a day or you’ll get burnt out!

-“Must-Eat” items – Disney is a food lover’s paradise – they have all kinds of cuisine and restaurants, and it’s a good idea to know what they have and what you might want to try. This is an especially good thing to do if you have any type of special diet or food allergy – it’s good to know which places can accommodate your needs

Hopefully this “list of lists” will be helpful to you– maybe you can use some (or all!) of them to help ensure your WDW vacation goes smoothly!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Cheers” To A Disney Happy Hour!

Walt Disney World is a GREAT place for adults to vacation, and one of the things that only the 21 and over crowd can enjoy there is the huge variety of alcoholic beverages available on menus all around the Disney “World”

Here are a few of our faves:

 HappyHour Rag

 The beer list at Raglan Road Irish Pub is long, and full of delicious options!

HappyHourBig River

Or head over to Big River Brewing Company – where the beer is brewed on site!

HappyHour Boma1

HappyhourBoma2

Boma has a great selection of whiskey drinks – a few of which my family and I have sampled and really enjoyed!

 

So cheers to Disney, Friday, and good times! TGIF!
