What makes Tusker House our favorite buffet

People often ask about the various buffets in Walt Disney World. There are a ton of different styles of buffets on property from character meals, different food offerings and different meal times. One of our absolute favorite buffets in Disney World is Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Tusker House is a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All three meals are a character meal featuring Donald, Daisy, Mickey and Goofy; all of which are dressed in their safari outfits. We often go for lunch or dinner here for various reasons, which we will share for why we feel that Tusker House is the best buffet in Disney World.  Continue reading

‘Ohana Dinner Guest Post

This review reflects an experience from April 2016.

This week we have a guest post from Erin about her dinner experience at ‘Ohana. ‘Ohana is located at Disney’s Polynesian Resort and features a family style meal. Here’s Erin’s review:

Back in April of this year I enjoyed a fully vegan dinner at the ‘Ohana family style dinner. I understand that a lot of vegans tend to avoid this because of the huge meat focused menu but, I have to say this is a must hit for vegans visiting the parks . The chef was very helpful in explaining what on the menu was vegan and could be modified for me.

Detour: Tokyo Disney Resort

This review reflects our experience from February 2016.

Sometimes we like to take trips that aren’t to Disney World in Florida. Recently we had the opportunity to take a quick trip to Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan! We were really excited about this opportunity and wanted to share our experience with our readers.

Tokyo Disney Resort is located just outside of Tokyo, Japan and features two parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Tokyo Disneyland opened in 1983 and is a pretty close resemblance to Disneyland in California. DisneySea opened in 2001 and features a beautiful waterfront and many more thrill rides than Disneyland. Tokyo Disneyland has a few token attractions that are completely unique to this park. Monsters, Inc. Ride and Go Seek! and Pooh’s Hunny Hunt are only found here.

Dan’s Memorial Weekend Trip

This week we have a guest post from Dan Bodenstein. Dan Bodenstein lives in South Florida, and has been a vegan since 2009 when he published his second children’s picture book, Steven the Vegan. He frequents the Disney parks annually, and is always on the lookout for interesting vegan options in, and out of the resort area.

It seems like things are always changing at the Walt Disney World resort. Those changes are also reflected in the variety of foods that are offered. This past Memorial Day weekend I travelled to Orlando to meet with my friend and illustrator to work on character development for our next book. We’ve known each other since grade school, and when we get together it’s like we are kids again. What better place to act like a kid than Walt Disney World. We visited two of the Disney parks, as well as Disney Springs on this trip. Thursday night we ventured out to see the new areas recently opened at Disney Springs. Continue reading
