Disney Dining Plan - With a Video!

There are many benefits to staying on Disney Property. One of these benefits includes the option to add one of Disney’s Dining Plans to your package! Purchasing a dining package can save your family up to 30% on dining!

When sitting down for dinner, my concern usually turns to how much the meal will cost. When purchasing the Disney Dining Plan, I can go into a restaurant without looking at the cost and just order according to what we love. If my husband wants the large steak meal for $30.00, I don’t need to think, “We only have $40.00 for dinner, what can I order to make this work.”  Other than paying for gratuities and alcohol, I would never need to reach into my wallet for food.

Disney has 3 Dining Plans – Disney’s Quick-Service Dining Plan, Disney’s Dining Plan and Disney’s Deluxe Dining Plan. It really depends on your eating habits and how you conquer the parks as to which plan is perfect for your family!

Does your family wake up at dawn to be at rope drop? Do your "rests" involve sitting during an attraction and your days end at park close? If this is your style, I would recommend Disney's Quick-Service Dining Plan. Each person age 3 and older will receive 2 Quick-Service Meals and 1 Snack per night of your stay.

If your family enjoys the hustle and bustle of the parks, but also looks forward to sit-down meals, your best bet would be the Disney Dining Plan. Some call this the "Regular" Dining Plan. This is the most popular dining plan as it offers 1 Table-Service Meal, 1 Quick-Service Meal and 1 Snack per person, per night of your stay.

Want to enjoy a slow leisurely pace during your vacation, and enjoy some of the most fabulous cuisine that Disney has to offer? Do you like to eat your way through "The World"? Then Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan is for you! This plan includes 3 meals either Quick-Service or Table-Service and 2 Snacks per person, per night of your stay. Talk about a LOT of food!

With each of these dining plans, each person age 3 and older on your reservation will receive 1 refillable resort mug that is valid for the length of your stay. This mug can be picked up at your resort food court.  You may refill your mug for FREE as many times as you wish throughout your stay only at your resort food court. It's also a great souvenir! My family drinks out of ours daily at home!

To check out more information on each of these Dining Plans, click HERE to see a great informative video! This video will show the ins and outs of how the plans work, as well as some great tips!
My family usually purchases the Disney Dining Plan, and recently enjoyed the Quick Service Dining Plan for FREE. That's right! Disney occasionally offers the Dining Plan as a promotion, for free! What better way to see if you would enjoy this benefit then getting it at no cost! Talk with your favorite Kingdom Konsultant Agent between now and September 29, 2012, and see if you would be eligible to receive this promotion!
Which Dining Plan seems best for your family? Do you purchase the Disney Dining Plan? What is the biggest benefit for you?

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
