Is Animal Kingdom Walt Disney World’s Best Theme Park?

In this post, I’m gonna take a bold leap and attempt to make a case that Animal Kingdom could be Walt Disney World’s best overall park at the moment. I’m sure I’ve lost a great deal of you already, but I really think it at least merits consideration. I’ll start right out by saying, Magic Kingdom is still my favorite of the Florida Parks. That however, is … Continue reading Is Animal Kingdom Walt Disney World’s Best Theme Park?

Dining Review: The Wave

The Wave (… of American Flavors) is a table service restaurant located on the bottom floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. The restaurant specialized in “new American cuisine inspired by a passion for locally and regionally sourced ingredients.” The Wave is one of the easiest reservations to score in all of WDW and we feel its a bit underrated. Of course, most of … Continue reading Dining Review: The Wave

Formally known as Downtown Disney, the company announced a huge overhaul of the area which began back in 2013.

Let’s Take a Ride on Peter Pan’s Flight

Today, we take a look at one of Walt Disney World’s most classic attractions. The original Peter Pan’s Flight was an opening day attraction at Disneyland.

Satu’li Canteen Review

Today, we are going to take a look at one of the best quick service restaurants in all of Walt Disney World. Satu’li Canteen, located within Pandora, opened along with the rest of the land back in 2017. The restaurant features a menu that is quite unique and uses fresh quality ingredients.
