The Popsicles come in three flavors. Limoncello, Sparkling Strawberry, and Berry Sangria. We opted to try the Limoncello and Berry Sangria. Continue Reading

Raglan Road Review #disneysprings

Raglan Road Review #disneysprings 5 On our last visit to Disney, we had the pleasure of dining at one of our all-time favorite restaurants at Disney Springs, Raglan Road. If you’ve never been before, let me fill you in. Raglan Road is Orlando’s only authentic Irish pub. It was built entirely in Ireland, disassembled, shipped to Orlando, and rebuilt in Disney Springs. The bars are 130 years old! This family-friendly establishment serves up classic Continue Reading

The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour

The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour 13 While the Walt Disney World Railroad might be down at the Magic Kingdom due to construction of the Tron attraction, there is still a way to get up close to the trains, and sneak in a little ride, and I don’t mean the train that’s currently parked in Main Street Station. I’m talking about The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour at Magic Kingdom. My son is a train fanatic and we got this tour as a surprise to hi Continue Reading

Tasting Around the World: Epcot International Festival of the Arts Food #ArtfulEpcot 24 One of my favorite festivals has hit Epcot and it’s the International Festival of the Arts.  I love walking around and checking out all the artwork, exhibits, performances, and most of all the food.  Now I will confess, my New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier so I was worried about how I was going to taste all these yummy foods and share it with you.  Well luckily, I have a family of five ready Continue Reading

Dining at Trails End

Dining at Trails End 34   If you are a fan of The Main Street Mouse then you have probably heard Michele or Scott talk about Trail’s End a few times.  I honestly did not know about this place until they told me about it and now my family is hooked.  Breakfast, Brunch, or Dinner, this place is delicious. Trail’s End is just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom.  Just steps from the dock, nestled in the trees of Fort Continue Reading

A New Place To Catch the Game

A New Place To Catch the Game 53 When you’re looking for a place to watch the big game (or any game for that matter), the default is always the ESPN Club at Boardwalk. Because of the popularity of ESPN, it can sometimes be difficult to get in and sat without a long wait. Don’t fret! There is another option to catch all of your favorite teams, but you may not have heard of it before. Rix Sports Bar & Grill, located at Disney’s Coronado S Continue Reading

An Open (Love) Letter to an Icon: A Review of “Mary Poppins Returns”

An Open (Love) Letter to an Icon: A Review of “Mary Poppins Returns” 57 A few weeks ago, my wife and I, along with a few thousand other Disney die-hards, attended Destination D.  Among the highlights of the event was a panel discussion with Mark Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the composer and lyricist who tackled the daunting task of penning the music for “Mary Poppins Returns”.  Both told a variety of stories, both from their experiences working on the new film and their personal re Continue Reading

The New Con on the Block: Gamer Comic Expo by Jarett

The New Con on the Block: Gamer Comic Expo by Jarett 61 Gamer Comic Con Review by Jarett Rutsky ~   Miami has been home to several comic style cons throughout the years. From November 9-12, 2018, the inaugural Gamer Comic Expo took over the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC). This brand-new con was slightly different than your typical convention. Over half of the main convention floor was dedicated to gaming. They even had professional gamers brought in to meet Continue Reading

The Halloween. The Horror. The Nights – Part 1

The Halloween. The Horror. The Nights – Part 1 70 In a rare OFF TMSM moment, I braved a night on the “dark side” of theme parks and decided to check out Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights 28 (HHN 28). This year HHN 28 was an 80s-dream come true, mostly because of the Netflix breakout hit, Stranger Things, which takes place in the 80s. No spoilers here, but if you have Netflix and haven’t had a chance to watch Stranger Things, I highly recommend the Continue Reading
