A Visit to Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie!


Just last month, Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie opened at Epcot’s France Pavilion in World Showcase.  I had the pleasure of visiting a couple of weeks ago to check it out and grab a snack while I was there, though I would have liked to have quite a few of the snacks they were serving!  Everything looked (and smelled) delicious!

One of the great things about the bakery is that it now opens at 9:00 am, before World Showcase opens at 11:00 am.  What better way to start your Disney day than with a cappuccino, coffee or latte with a delicious pastry like a chocolate croissant?  Especially if you can grab an outdoor table in the morning Florida sunshine!  Absolutely perfect!  There is also an indoor dining area with tables and chairs, as well as small tables you can stand at and enjoy your snack.

The selection of food is set up in glass cases that form a “U” shape.  Guests form a line in the center.  From there they can choose to go left or right (both sides have the same selections, as well as registers to check out).  There are screens above the waiting area that show the menus.   I didn’t even have to look at the menu, I already knew what I was there for - crème brulee!  Along with the crème brulee and pastries are other delicious sweets such as eclairs filled with custard, chocolate mousse, chocolate chip cookies and coconut macaroons – just for starters! 

If you don't have much of a sweet tooth, there are plenty of other options, too.  With ham and cheese on a croissant or with a baguette or the turkey and brie with a baguette, you can grab a lunch or light dinner here.  There are also lobster bisque and pumpkin soups as well as salads available.  Do you fancy quiche?  Try the Quiche Florentine (spinach and goat cheese) or the Quiche Lorraine (ham and gruyere).  Baguettes fresh from the oven are an option along with the delicious Roule au Fromage (garlic and cheese roll).  And let's not forget that you can top off your French cuisine with a glass of wine, champagne or some beer! 

Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie is Disney Dining Plan participating restaurant.  Even better, all of the food items on the menu are less than ten dollars each!  This is a great option for those who are looking for a quick, inexpensive but delicious bite to eat. 

After enjoying my oh-so-yummy creme brulee, I can say that Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie will be on my must-do list for future Walt Disney World vacations.  Whether it be for a sandwich on a baguette or something sweet, I can see this lovely place quickly becoming one of my favorite quick service stops!

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
