The Walt Disney World Resort experience is a highlight in itself! (Even if you are on a business trip) This is my first time away from my family in more than ten years and it is also my first visit to Disney as a business trip. Even though we were there to learn, our instructors not only scheduled us at some fantastic dining locations but they allowed ample time to explore the Walt Disney World Resort area and find a few gems on our own. With sales seminars beginning just after 7am, a buffet breakfast was usually provided in the Yacht Club Convention Center. However, we were fortunate enough to have VIP reservations for breakfast with Minni...Read More

Disney has found yet another way to turn back the clock and take you back to the turn of the century (the 20th century) to a modest coastal setting along the Atlantic seaboard. A time where carefree days meet up with a simple, yet charming atmosphere that is accompanied by great food. Disney’s Cape May Café is located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort in the EPCOT area. Although this Disney Dining Plan location is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner my colleges and I opted to begin our day at Disney by having a buffet breakfast with Minnie Mouse and some of her friends. The entrance to the restaurant is an ...Read More

What a day. It was dark and raining when I woke up just after 3am to catch a 7:45am flight out of Hartford Connecticut. I bought a coffee at the airport and had a bag of Sunchips on my Delta flight to Orlando, and since my room wasn’t ready when I tried checking into DISNEY’S BEACH CLUB RESORT I figured now would be a good time to eat, my only dilemma was where. There are more than one-hundred different restaurants and eateries located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort area and nearly half of them are just a short walk from my resort hotel. With so many different possibilities my choice was simple, I chose the closest one: Beaches and Cream Soda Shop. My family and I tried dining here ...Read More

Some Brits will argue that you can’t find proper fish and chips on this side of the pond. Well I beg to differ. Located in the United Kingdom pavilion of EPCOT, guests can find a taste of authentic English fish and chips right here in America. The Yorkshire County Fish Shop is at the far end of the United Kingdom, just before the International Gateway by Rose and Crown Pub, and is one of the Disney Dining Plan locations. The sign outside the shop says Established in 1928, letting you know this recipe has been used for almost one hundred years. The restaurant features world-renowned ...Read More

What most people have to keep in mind is that Disney is all about attention to detail and keeping accommodations, attractions, and restaurants as authentic to their origins as they can. When you think about authentic Mediterranean cuisine think Spoodles on Disney’s Boardwalk. To be honest with you I was a little apprehensive about dining at Spoodes because of all the negative reviews that I have read. I didn’t share that information with my colleagues because I am a firm believer that most people are more apt to writing about something when they are displeased rather than when they are happy. I suggested Spoodles because I have never dined there before and I was looking forward to forming my own ...Read More

For those of you who have read my other journals you know I have been visiting Walt Disney World® for nearly thirty years, however, every once in a while even the most traveled traveler will come across a hidden treasure that has always been right around the corner. For me, that little gem was the Plaza Restaurant. As we walked around the Magic Kingdom we realized that we had not yet chosen a restaurant for dinner, so we collectively decided to try the Plaza. I knew where to find the restaurant (Take a rig...Read More
