Whipping it Up in Adventureland!

Everyone has a favorite snack when they go on a Disney vacation and mine is the Dole Whip.  Well, that’s probably me and a million other people, too!  In Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland at Walt Disney World, you’ll find a small store front called Aloha Isle.  Chances are, you may have passed by here and wondered why so many people were standing in line knowing there is no ride there.  This is so much better than a ride!  It’s one of several locations that you can get this soft serve frozen pineapple dessert along with Captain Cook’s at the Polynesian Resort, the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland in Disneyland and the Dole Plantation in Hawaii.



If you find yourself in Adventureland, I’d highly recommend treating yourself to one,  whether it’s in a cup by itself or as a float in pineapple juice.  Either way, it is absolutely delicious!  They also have vanilla if you don’t care for pineapple.  After you try this wonderful confection, you’ll be asking yourself "How did I miss this place? Are you sure this is non-dairy and not ice cream?"  Dole Whips are considered a snack item on the Disney Dining Plan.
 
What is your favorite way to enjoy a Dole Whip?

 
Happy Snacking!

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

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
