I Drink and Know Things – Around the World 1 Oh EPCOT, home of all the awesome Festivals.  From the Food and Wine Festival to Flower and Garden, the Festival of Arts and International Festival of the Holidays… EPCOT is the place for celebrating.

Disney Destinations: Chicken Guy!

Disney Destinations: Chicken Guy! 8 When you think of Disney you don’t really think of fast food. Thinking quick service or restaurants, then yes. With the exception of McDonald’s there really are not any fast-food chains on property. Downtown Disney used to have a McDonalds but that was removed as the transition began to Disney Springs. However, if you wander from the bus depot or even the Orange Garage toward Planet Hollywood you will disco Continue Reading

BOMA flavors of Africa -Breakfast Review

BOMA flavors of Africa -Breakfast Review 10 Anyone who knows me will know that my favorite meal to eat is breakfast.  Usually when I am choosing a table service dining experience at Disney, I will look for a breakfast or brunch option.  This comes with some perks! First, it is cheaper and second you can satisfy more pallets at breakfast time.  One of my favorite restaurants to eat breakfast at the Walt Disney World Resort is Boma, which is in the Animal K Continue Reading

Spoiler Free Review of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Spoiler Free Review of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker 18 May 25, 1977, Star Wars debuts in theaters and becomes a box office hit.  42 1/2 years later, the franchise can still pack the crowds in like no other movie franchise can.  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the ninth installment in the franchise saga.  After Episode VIII, The Last Jedi I honestly walked away from a movie franchise that I grew up loving everything about.  The first one I saw in theaters was Re Continue Reading

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 20 Anyone who’s lived in South Jersey (or the greater Philadelphia for that matter) has heard of Olga’s Diner. It’s a landmark, even though it was closed for many years. An institution, if you will. Oga’s Cantina is nothing like Olga’s Diner, and it’s a very good thing. Oga’s Cantina looks, feels, sounds and smells like it should. Exactly like it should. Stepping inside truly is like walking into the s Continue Reading

THE LION KING ~ A New Version of an Old Story by Chuck Guth

THE LION KING ~ A New Version of an Old Story by Chuck Guth 31 From guest blogger- Chuck Guth This weekend Disney released their live-action remake of the popular animated cartoon “The Lion King”. From the start, there have been those that are naysayers and those that looked eagerly forward to this retelling. I happen to fall into the latter category. Let me get several things straight right from the beginning. This obviously is not a live-action remake. It is computer an Continue Reading

During GalaxyCon, you will see the normal comicon events, but they provide live entertainment like dances, costume contests, and wrestling events. The Continue Reading

From Behind the Pass, Aloha Edition Volume 1: Monkeypod Kitchen

From Behind the Pass, Aloha Edition Volume 1: Monkeypod Kitchen 42 I had been told on several occasions that there isn’t much around Au’lani. Not so, at least not anymore. There are tons of shops, both big chains and small mom-and-pops, as well as restaurants. While getting ready for our trip to Hawaii, my wife came across reviews for a place called Monkeypod Kitchen, right across the street from Au’lani. We went on the first night of our trip, our first real meal on the isl Continue Reading
