Are you a Disney Food Addict??

For some it's about the characters and attractions, for others it's the resorts and recreation... for you, it's all about the food!

 Do you have your snacks all picked out for your next trip? Do you starting selecting your dining reservations long before the 180 day window? You're in good company! We know that dining can be a HUGE part of the Disney experience. We've picked out a few traits to help you figure out if you are a true Disney food addict.


  • You use the word “Dole Whip” in every day conversation
  • You vaguely recall riding a few rides in between your favorite snacks
  • You seriously consider adding on a few extra nights to have more dining credits
  •  You know that ‘Ohana has a second, unofficial definition: "delicious food on a stick"
  • You were very excited when Disney released food-scented air fresheners, such as Mickey bars, turkey legs, and popcorn (and you’re pretty sure you had been suggesting this for years!)
  • You consider the four seasons to be “winter, spring, summer, and Food & Wine”   
  • You always pack clothes 1 size bigger for a Disney vacation to allow for "food expansion"
  • Your WDW priority list is: turkey leg, dole whip, churro, Space Mountain. In that order.
  • You have Tonga Toast withdrawals when you get back home
  • The order of the countries around World Showcase Lagoon is: churros, school bread, egg rolls, caramel corn, gelato, funnel cakes, sake, lamb sliders, Napoleans, fish & chips, and pretzel
  • When you go out to dinner back home, you find yourself saying "well it was good, but just not Disney good" 
  • Proximity to good restaurants, bars, snack shacks etc plays a pivitol role in your resort choice
  • You're pretty sure a Lapu Lapu is somewhere in the food pyramid
  • You know all of the names of your "Relatives" at the 50's Prime Time Café in Disney's Hollywood Studios- and you know the Golden Rule after eating dinner there... "No Tower for 1 Hour!"
  • You would be happy spending a week at Disney with the Deluxe Dining Plan, eating at the resorts and never setting foot in a park
  • You have an extensive mental list of all the snacks you want and where to find them. All of your touring plans are based off this list. 
  • You think Disney should rename them "Extra Snack Hours"
  • You make a solid argument that a Mickey Ice Cream bar equals a balanced meal: surely licking the stick can count as fiber and the chocolate coating is a veggie!   
  • You know that there are no calories in a Disney treat if you share it with your best friend or family
How many of these apply to you?? If you answered "all," then congratulations! You are definitely a well-rounded, bona fide, official member of the "Disney Food Addicts" club.

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

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

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
