Disney Destinations: Chicken Guy!

Disney Destinations: Chicken Guy! 1 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 3 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

Disney Destination ~ Spice Road Table

Disney Destination ~ Spice Road Table 6 Recently, my wife and I enjoyed lunch at the Spice Road Table as part of our Candlelight Processional dining package. This was a new restaurant that we wanted to experience and we were not disappointed. Located right outside of the Morroco pavilion it sits alongside the World Showcase lagoon. The restaurant is based on the legendary spice routes that were conducted between Asia, northeast Africa, and Europe.  They Continue Reading

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 11 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 Circle of Cash Flow: A Review of Disney’s “The Lion King” (2019)

The Circle of Cash Flow: A Review of Disney’s “The Lion King” (2019) 18 *Last week we published a blog from Chuck Guth about how much he enjoyed The Lion King remake. Here is a counter point of the new film from staff writer Dan Fisher! Two varying opinions, but we cover all sides! Enjoy! -M   I’ve been on board with most of the recent run of Disney remakes.  I’ve even reviewed a few of them for this site.  Here’s a brief synopsis of my thoughts on the remakes so far, in n 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 22 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

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

From Behind the Pass, Aloha Edition Volume 1: Monkeypod Kitchen 24 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

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” 34 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

From Behind the Pass: Brunch at Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Kitchen

From Behind the Pass: Brunch at Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Kitchen 38 Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Kitchen is just one of the dizzying food options at Disney Springs (I still refer to it as Downtown privately). It’s become Disney World’s hub for foodies seeking something more refined than theme park pizza and french fries. Being a chef, I’m always on the lookout for eats of all kinds, especially anything “southern”. Southern cuisine is comfort food, and comfort fo Continue Reading
