This dining experience took place on September 5, 2014

Apologies for brevity – we wanted to get this post out because of the special dining event in Orlando in September… MAGICAL DINING MONTH…

This is bluezoo’s featured entree for the month and it is fantastic!

Octopus sous vide in buttermilk and then charred –

We have reservations for Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014!

We were able to get all of the reservations that we wanted, except two…

Dining Through the Decades: A Tribute to Walt Disney – we wanted reserved seating (the only way that doing events in the World Showplace is enjoyable for us), all sold out by the time I got to speak to a live

thoughts and plans for Food & Wine 2014

Planning for Food & Wine is always exciting and at the same time a bit daunting…

How many special events do we want to do? How many special events fit into our schedule (we always seem to have lots of visitors during Food & Wine, and isn’t a given that they want to go to

Quick Take – Mandara Spa

I recently went back to the Mandara Spa at the Dolphin Resort for a hair cut. I had a different stylist this time and for probably the second time in my life, I walked out feeling great about a hair cut (I’ll definitely be going back to see her again!).

Anyway, there are two waiting

Kill Refurb Marry – Epcot Pre-Shows

Well, this is my first round of “Kill Refurb Marry” – the topic today is Epcot Pre-Shows. This should be interesting because since we moved to Lake Buena Vista, we don’t really do the attractions at Walt Disney World.

So I asked Nick the question and we agreed on two categories: Refurb and

Alan Parsons Flower Power Concert

This experience took place on Sunday, May 18, 2014 (the last event of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014)

The concert was a bit disappointing compared to some of the others we’ve seen at Epcot in the last year or so. It’s not that anything was really horrible, just that most everything wasn’t

Il Mulino – Tuna Carpaccio, Rigatoni con Funghi, and Cerni

This dining experience took place on Friday, March 28, 2014

We put Il Mulino to a real test on the last Friday night in March – we didn’t contact Angela (manager) ahead of time to let her know we were coming in for dinner, we just showed up and got a table. We

Oft repeated fact isn’t true

At dinner last night, we told a friend from Rhode Island that Walt Disney World was bigger than the state of Rhode Island. I can’t remember where or when we heard that, I’m pretty sure that this little “fact” made its way into our brains from more than one conduit… So, this morning, I thought

Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian – Swedish Massage

It’s a bit difficult to write about spa experiences. I can tell you how my particular massage or whatever went with the particular therapist I had… Until I go back a couple of times to the same therapist at a few different spas, I can’t really say whether they’re any good compared to anyone else.

Repost – Two Segway Tours that are no-more

There are two Segway Tours that used to take place in Epcot theme-park. The first is the “Nature Inspired Design Tour” (circa 2010) and the second is the “Keep Moving Forward Tour” (circa 2013) – interestingly, we had the same tour guide on each of these. The “Keep Moving Forward Tour” was very short-lived –
