Signature resort restaurants – Final round

resort-restaurants-part-2-round-4

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?

June 2014 monthly round up

Sorry this round up is a little late – there were lots of other exciting posts I wanted to make sure I got out this week, like a Maleficent tutu and my review of the Maleficent movie!  Lots of love going around for the evil fairy this week.  It’s June, which means summer is starting soon!  And it also means that very soon, Disney in your Day will be a year old!  I’m sure we’ll try to have some fun posts and giveaways for that 🙂

It seems to me like there’s been a ton of news and interesting blog posts lately, so let’s get down to it!

Disney in your Day news

I know that last month I mentioned bringing back the restaurant tournament for resort restaurants – but there were so many great items in the running gear guide and other things happening that I didn’t get around to it.  Hopefully for June!  The running gear guide will still be posting items all this month and maybe into July, so make sure you check out our giveaways!  I also start training for the Tower of Terror 10 miler run this week, so I’m going to post periodic updates about that for others who may be curious about the process of training for a Disney run.

Recipe: Lapu Lapu from the Polynesian

lapu lapu

This is one of those “infamous Disney drinks” that you simply must get when you eat or drink at the Poly!  During my February visit to Disney World I was lucky enough to have dinner at Ohana for the first time.  That was an experience in and of itself, but one of the many highlights was finally being able to try this great pineapple drink!  I recreated my own version at home (unfortunately I didn’t have a pineapple to serve it in, but it still tasted good!).  I also changed the recipe very slightly.  It calls for the drink to be topped off with Bacardi 151, but the Lapu Lapu is a pretty alcoholic drink to begin with, so I left that out of mine.  If you want to be as authentic as possible you would probably want to add it, but if you’re looking for something not quite as strong it’s still just as good without the 151.
