Ears the News with Richard



The Flying Fish Cafe at Disney's BoardWalk Resort will be offering breakfast for a limited period in the fall of 2014. Reservations are open now for breakfast between October 1 and December 7, with seating from 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM.

Menu items include dishes such as waffle with tiramisu mascarpone, soft polenta with fennel sausage, and frittata with roasted red pepper and prosciutto.

As I am sure most of you know, Disney can put on some rather impressive fireworks displays. It should only follow that the ones they put on for the 4th of July are impressive turned up to 11. WDWMagic was kind enough to post a video of them for all of us to enjoy- click here to view it!


Frozen Summer Fun LIVE at Disney's Hollywood Studios is officially underway. WDWMagic has posted some video of the park decor and a look inside the skating rink at Soundstage 1 along with

Anna’s & Elsa’s Royal Welcome which takes place each day at 11:00 AM and the fireworks that take place in the evening.

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
