When it comes to Disney, one of my favorite things is food. Whether it’s a quick snack or a fancy sit down meal, I love all that the parks have to offer. I religiously read the Disney Food Blog, and pin items I want to try on future visits. But I thought it might be easiest to have a place where I can compile all of the things I want to try! On these lists I’ve included items I have tried that I feel are “must try” for others, as well as ones that I haven’t tasted yet that I’m drooling just thinking about it! So without further ado, here are the items on my Disney “must eat” list:
It was down to Jiko and Ohana. Both are great restaurants with a lot to offer, and both are extremely popular. But only one could be crowned the winner. After an extremely close vote, the closest we’ve ever had, the winner is…
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?
It’s down to only 4 restaurants left – and they’re all pretty outstanding in my opinion! Hard to choose a favorite, but that’s what this is all about. So tell me, out of these match-ups, which are your favorites? Jiko or California Grill? Ohana or Victoria and Alberts? (Two totally different places, for sure!)
Let me know your votes by either commenting here on the blog or posting on our facebook page!
I feel like a lot has been happening lately in the world of Disney! Some interesting and exciting announcements have come out about both the parks and films. And as the holidays approach, there are always fun things happening!
Disney in your Day News
We are right in the middle of another restaurant tournament – this time for signature and character dining! If you haven’t placed your votes for Round 2 yet, be sure to check that out now. I’m also in the middle of Glass Slipper Challenge training, and though it’s a little rougher than last time I’m still getting through it. I have two more running related reviews to put up, both of which I’m super excited about. And there will certainly be some holiday themed posts coming this month!
It’s finally time for another restaurant tournament! This time it’s the signature restaurants at the resorts. I have a feeling this one is going to be really tough, because there are just so many good ones! This tournament will actually include both signature and character dining at the resorts. We’ve taken care of most of the other restaurants at Disney in various tournaments: We’ve already done Epcot (Le Cellier won), the three other parks (Be Our Guest was victorious), Downtown Disney (Raglan Road), and non-signature resort restaurants (Sanaa).
All you have to do to cast your vote is to comment on this blog post, or comment on the facebook page. Please try to place a vote for each match up, even if you haven’t eaten there – it’s just for fun, so take a guess at which one you would like more, or choose which one sounds more appealing to you! For this first round, you should have 7 restaurants listed (Victoria and Albert’s gets a free pass into the second round).
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and any comments you might have on the restaurants!
I will first up admit that this review will be a little difficult to write – the food we had was all very good, but the portion sizes were super small and just didn’t seem worth the price to us. But it was new and we wanted to try it out, so we headed here for lunch last February.
The seating area, out on the patio, is very nice. I love the look of it – it’s well decorated and you do of course have a great view out over the lagoon. We got lunch around 11:30 and it was almost completely empty at that point. I imagine a table right on the water would be really nice, as you get an awesome view of the Lagoon.
I decided to try the white wine flight, which has three different types of wine that you can see below. These glasses were pretty tiny. I enjoyed them and found them all to be pretty light and pleasant. I don’t think one really stood out to me as a big favorite, but they were nice. My husband had a red wine that was described as very sweet, called the “King of Hearts”. He liked it, it was very smooth, but not as sweet as he was hoping. He enjoys a really good sweet red wine. JamJar sweet shiraz that we had at Jiko is his favorite wine of all time.
