Overhaul! Just How Different IS This Year’s “Food” & Garden Menu?

Check it out!

It's "All in WDW"

Overhaul.  Upon deeper analysis, that’s the best word I can use to describe this year’s “Food” & Garden menu.  From my perspective, it has undergone a complete … overhaul!

Why do I feel this?  Well, of my 2014 Final Top 15 items, only seven survived!  Seven!  With last year’s ranking in parentheses, here are the dishes that get an encore in 2015 …

  • Pulled Pig Slider – The Smokehouse (1)
  • Ghost Pepper-dusted Tilapia – Urban Farm Eats (4)
  • Shrimp and Stone-ground Grits – Florida Fresh (5)
  • Harissa Chicken Kebab – Taste of Marrakesh (6)
  • Achiote-marinated Pork Corn Tortilla – Jardin de Fiestas (8)
  • Watermelon Salad – Florida Fresh (12)
  • Parisian-style Dumplings – Fleur de Lys (13)

Most concerning – to me, at least – is that All in WDW’s #2 and #3 items from 2014 got tossed “outa the game”!

The Smokehouse’s Smoked Beef Brisket (which was #2 in 2013 as well)…

Want to know all about the restaurants and food served at Walt Disney World ?

Then look no further!
One of my favorite sites, The Disney Food Blog, has an extensive listing of all the restaurants found at Walt Disney World, including the parks, resorts and DTD and their menus.

It is mind boggling when you look at all the choices WDW has to offer! No one should ever leave WDW hungry, that’s for sure!

Check out their guide here!

Here are a few pics. of some of the tasty things we’ve eaten at WDW.

So as I was looking through my pictures, I realized that I have tons of pictures of the sweet things we would eat and not much of the real food!

Guess we all have a sweet tooth…and when we would sit down to eat our meals we were so hungry I forgot to take pics!

A big thank you to Kenny the Pirate for keeping us updated on all of the Walt Disney World Attraction Refurbishments 😉

Think your child is too young for Walt Disney World???

….you are so wrong!

I have been asked many times…”Is my child too young to enjoy WDW?” , “Will they even remember it?”, “Will it be a waste of time and money?”

When they are very young, it is not about what they will remember about your magical vacation to WDW, it is about what you will remember! The memories we created when our youngest was only 5 months old and we took him to WDW are simply magical. I never thought we’d take an infant to Disney and boy am I so happy we did 😉 Plus under 3 is FREE!


Here are some of my favorite pics. from our vacations to WDW when he was young! My little guy is only 7 and has been fortunate enough to have been to WDW 7 times and has been on 2 Disney cruises.

Sorry I’ve been MIA!

I apologize for not getting many updates put up! Life has been crazy! Between summer activities and putting our house up for sale it has been insane at my house. Couple that along with updating my travel agent training and time has certainly slipped away from me.
Even though I specialize in travel to Disney Destinations I can book any type of travel, from cruises to all-inclusives. I am excited to say that I will be cruising on Carnival for the 1st time this Nov. on-board the Breeze!
Meanwhile please feel free to contact me for a quote for whatever type of vacation you desire! Also, remember that Disney only requires $200 to hold your booking!
