Celebrate Oktoberfest All Year at Biergarten Restaurant

Biergarten Restaurant is one of the most overlooked and authentic restaurants in Epcot in my opinion! Situated in the back of the Germany pavilion in Epcot, it's hidden away. It's one of my favorites spots because of the great food, beer, and entertainment. You're surrounded with German heritage and culture. I really felt like I was celebrating Oktoberfest in a quaint, Bavarian village (which is on my bucketlist!) German food is comfort food! It's filling, hearty, and savory. Look at that huge potato dumpling! When you enter Biergarten, you are magically transported to an outdoor Oktoberfest gathering at night. The "village" has gathered to enjoy food and bier, and dance to polka music. With the leaves on the trees turning orange, and the harvest moon, it makes it feel like it really is October. In the distance, you can see the rooftops of the little cottages around town. Thick, wooden tables are situated around a stage so you can watch the house band f

La Cava del Tequila

TEQUILA! Anyone else have that song go through your head when you go to La Cava del Tequila or just me? Oh La Cava, how I love your Margaritas! If you haven't been and you love a good Margarita, make this a part of your next trip to EPCOT. It's located inside the Mexico Pavilion to the right when you enter the marketplace.  When you first enter La Cava, it definitely has that party vibe going! It has the feel of stepping into a little hole in the wall or a Cave as the name depicts, with over 200 different brands of Tequila, let the party begin! With it's warm décor and original artifacts celebrating the Mexican heritage, they truly make you feel right at home. It is small, with seating for up to 30.  And the way that it is situated, you don't see what is going on out in the Marketplace. It's an easy way to lose track of time, which doesn't bother me one bit!  I usually go in with a few friends and we will grab a table and order some appetizers.  Guacamole and/o

Resort Highlight: Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney’s Riviera Resort opened in December 2019, so it’s just been open for over a year. The beautiful resort is themed to Walt Disney’s travels through Europe and his love of the French and Italian Riviera. The special touches like a library, bistro, terraces, and manicured grounds at this resort invoke a feeling of being in such a place. The Riviera is considered a Disney Vacation Club property, and as such it offers only villa accommodations, including a Tower Studio that sleeps two, a Deluxe Studio that sleeps five, a One-Bedroom Villa that sleeps five, a Two-Bedroom Villa that sleeps nine, and a Three-Bedroom Villa that sleeps 12. One of my favorite things about the Villas are how the smaller rooms – particularly the Deluxe Studio – can comfortably accommodate a family of five. In addition to a queen bed, there is also a queen pull-down murphy-style bed as well as a twin pull-down bed. There is plenty of sitting room for the daytime once these beds are folded in, including a table

Top 10 Ways to Save Money on your Disney Cruise

Who doesn’t like saving money? Going on vacation doesn't have to break the bank. Here are my top 10 ways you can save money on your next (or first!) Disney Cruise: Welcome Aboard, Captain Mickey! 1. Book Early – The best advice I can give for saving money on a Disney Cruise is to book early. Over time, Disney Cruise prices go up because as a specific category fills up, the prices go up. When Disney releases new itineraries, the more popular ones can go up in price even on that first day! Disney Dream at Castaway Cay 2. Book a mystery room  – If you can’t book early, you may get some discounts by booking last-minute. Disney has a special fare for late planners. The highly restricted fares called IGT (inside guaranteed room), OGT (ocean view guaranteed room) and VGT (verandah guaranteed room) can save you hundreds! They're non-refundable , but can get you a great deal on that cruise you have had your eye on all year! You won't get to choose your stateroom #, but

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
