Signature resort restaurants – Final round


We’re down to the last two in this restaurant tournament!  It was insanely close between the last two match ups – both of them were decided by just one or two votes.  While Victoria and Albert’s is probably technically the best restaurant on the list, I’m not surprised it didn’t quite make the cut just because many people haven’t been able to try it due to the price.  So that leaves us with Jiko and Ohana!  Which one do you prefer?

Animal Kingdom Lodge Review

When I found out I would have the chance to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge twice while at Disney this year, I was extremely excited.  The Animal Kingdom Lodge was like my dream resort.  Animal Kingdom is arguably my favorite park, and the safari is my favorite thing to do there.  So the idea of having those animals roaming around right where I was staying was incredible!
