Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace

This review reflects our experience in September 2015.

Some evenings in Disney World you may just need to take a break after a long day. One of the best ways to do so is to head to a resort lounge for some live music, snacks and maybe even some drinks. One of our favorite places to hangout is Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace. This part of Trader Sam’s is located outside at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Many people use this as a waiting area for Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, which is much smaller and has more unique theming. Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace is very easy to find, it sits just around the corner from Captain Cook’s and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.

While at Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace you can enjoy live music, watch Wishes and enjoy a few drinks that aren’t offered inside at the Grog Grotto. This outdoor lounge is much more laid back and is a great place to hangout after a long day with a beautiful view. Continue reading

Cruising over to Skipper Canteen

This review reflects our experience from January 2016.

One of the classic Disney attractions just got a restaurant themed after it! Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, which is quite the mouthful, has officially opened in Adventureland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Here you will meet jungle skippers and have a meal at their headquarters. Typical to the attraction the Jungle Cruise you will find that your servers and hosts will be full of witty jokes and keep you on your toes while on your journey.

Custom Wrap at Port Orleans French Quarter

This review reflects our experience in October 2015.

During our last visit we stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter for the first time. We had frequented the resort’s sister property, Port Orleans Riverside, but avoided French Quarter because it does not have a table service restaurant, and because we thought the Mardi Gras theming would be over-done. To our surprise, the property was beautifully appointed throughout, and we had a very pleasant at the one quick service dining location, Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory.

‘Ohana – Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch

Friend of the blog, Sara, recently went to Disney World, here is her review about ‘Ohana breakfast!

Our review of our visit in December 2015:

‘Ohana is located at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. We took the bus from our resort to the Magic Kingdom and then rode a boat to the Polynesian. It was a beautiful day and the boat ride was fast and fun! 

We were a bit worried about what we could eat since the menu advertised consists of: scrambled eggs, Island-style fried potatoes, Hawaiian pork sausages, smoked bacon and a variety of fresh fruits and breads – pretty much nothing we can eat. But we were hopeful and on a mission to meet Stitch!
