However with a new Land comes crowds, so master the Hollywood Studios FastPass tiers and formulate an awesome FastPass strategy to … [Read more...]

Minnie Mouse is one of the most loved Disney characters, but she can be difficult to find at Disney World character meals. Minnie's Seasonal Dine at Hollywood and Vine Disney World is one of only two star-studded meals where she is included with other big names like Mickey and Donald (the other being Chef Mickey's at Contemporary). So if you're heading to Hollywood Studios, … [Read more...]
You will love the fun-filled 'Ohana breakfast - the only Disney World character meal with Lilo & Stitch. The fabulous location at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort (no park ticket required!) and these cheeky characters mean it is now one of our Disney World must-dos. Walt Disney World character dining at 'Ohana cafe Sitting in the elevated 'Ohana cafe, looking … [Read more...]
The Crystal Palace is one of three Magic Kingdom character dining options and definitely the cutest! This is where you'll find the cuddly and adorable characters from Winnie-the-Pooh. We are big fans of Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Winnie-the-Pooh, especially after seeing the wonderful Christopher Robin movie, and were keen to revisit this fun character meal on our most recent … [Read more...]
Cinderella's Royal Table is a Disney World must do, because it allows you to do the impossible - to go inside Cinderella's Castle. Anyone can walk through the arches at ground level, past some beautiful mosaics and come out on the other side. Other Disney parks have paths to follow deeper into their castles, displaying dioramas telling Sleeping Beauty's story. At Disneyland … [Read more...]
Epcot is a brilliant theme park and unlike any other around the world, with its mixture of epic rides in Future World and culture-packed World Showcase. The best Epcot attractions like Soarin', Test Track and Frozen Ever After meant that we spent a day and half here this trip and left wanting more. Epcot is also huge (more than twice the size of Magic Kingdom!), so you … [Read more...]
The kids adored meeting Chip 'n' Dale at an Epcot meet and greet last time we visited, so a Garden Grill Epcot character meal with these cheerful chipmunks was high on their wish list this time around. This is one of the few places you can meet Chip 'n' Dale in the whole of Disney World and they’re always a lot of fun. Cheeky and full of cuddles. Walt … [Read more...]
With only about 18 attractions versus the 33 at Magic Kingdom and 26 at Epcot, it's not actually super hard to do Animal Kingdom in one day. You may in fact only be able to fit half a day into your Disney World schedule like our last visit. But if you want to see and do everything in one day (and you definitely can!), then you need a plan. 8am Quiet walk through Asia … [Read more...]
The African-themed Tusker House is where you can meet many of the most popular Disney characters while enjoying excellent food in a relaxed setting. This character meal is a Disney World must do for us. We love that the Tusker House characters don't seem rushed. There is a laid back vibe for both the characters and the diners. The characters will stay at your table for … [Read more...]
When it is a 16 hour flight from Sydney to Dallas, plus another couple of hours from Dallas to Orlando, you need to spend a reasonable amount of time on the ground to make those killer flights worthwhile. For us that meant this 10 days in Orlando itinerary, followed by an amazing 7 night Disney cruise. We had an absolute ball in the theme park capital of the world, hitting … [Read more...]
