The Magic Kingdom's nightly Wishes Dessert Party has
undergone some modifications, bringing some more upscale food and drink
offerings and a higher price point.
Previously priced at $29, the new Wishes Dessert Party jumps
to $49 for adults, and $29 for ages 3-9.
Along with the price increase comes an
update to the food and drink offerings, along with a more upscale experience
with table cloths and place settings.
Sparkling cider, hot drinking chocolate and signature
lemonades join the beverage line-up in addition to the soft drinks.
Desserts include chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate
mousse, ice cream, seasonal fruit and cheese, and Disney character-themed

Located inside Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and
Spa, Grand Floridian Cafe is definitely one of those restaurants at Disney that
seem to fall off of the radar, but should definitely be considered a hidden
With the vast selections of restaurants serving
breakfast on Disney property, this is one of our favorites!
Tastefully decorated with a Victorian flair, Grand
Floridian Cafe is bright, cheerful and friendly, while offering views of the
Grand Floridian's courtyard, and very serene. Being just a staircase (or elevator ride) away from
the monorail, access to Grand Floridian Cafe, could not be more convenient.
Offering full menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Advanced Dining
Reservations (ADRs) are usually easy to come by. Walk ups are possible, but not
I know, I know.... get on to the food!!
During our last visit in the Fall, we headed to Grand
Floridian Cafe for breakfast. This is a *must dine at* location every year for
As of today (March 20, 2015), Disney offers breakfast service at Be Our Guest
It will be offered in a test capacity through to June 18
Breakfast will begin at 8:00 AM through to 10:00 AM, and
will be quick service prix fixe at $19.99 plus tax for adults, and $11.99 plus
tax for ages 3 - 9. Each breakfast begins with a pastry basket for sharing, and
then a choice of entree and self service beverage.
Breakfast at Be Our Guest will be on the Disney Dining Plan
with 1 quick service credit, and just like lunch, it will require a reservation
even though it is a quick service offering. Walks up will be offered if space
is available, which is very unlikely.
Unlike lunch, pre-ordering of menu items will not be
available, and selections will be made inside the restaurant.
Reservations began on March 17 using My Disney Experience
for dates from March 20 through to June 18 2015.

Located in Epcot's Chinese Pavilion, Nine Dragons is definitely one of
those Disney World restaurants that seems to fall off of the radar. Now,
I'll admit, I must have passed Nine Dragon's a hundred times, and never thought
to dine here. I am betting most of you are thinking the way I did; "I can
get Chinese food at home", or have made ADRs (Advanced Dining Reservations
for you first time visitors) only to cancel and dine elsewhere. A lot of past reviews are mixed regarding this restaurant, which I think contributed to me
not dining here in the past, but I had to give Nine Dragons a fair chance. I
can tell you, I'm glad we did! And....... did you know NO MSG is used in any
dishes at Nine Dragon's? Neither did I! Being a fan, that was great news to me!
Nine Dragons underwent a recent facelift or refurb in
Disney-speak in 2009. It really is a pretty restaurant. The reception area does
tend to get a bit crowded, but we were seated within fifteen minutes.
The Walt Disney World Monorail Express beam will be
operating on a reduced schedule through to the summer of 2015. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 11:30 AM to 6:00 PM, the
Express beam will be closed for maintenance. During that time, the Resort and Epcot
beams will continue to operate as normal. Watercraft and busses will also be
operating throughout the closures. The revised schedule begins on March 10 2015.
The quiet pool at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort will be
closing for a major refurbishment in April. The exact dates are not available, but it is expected that
the pool will close in mid April 2015 through to early January 2016. The resort's main feature pool will open prior to the
closure of the quiet pool, and will bring a new pool deck, hot tub, and kids
play area when it opens in April 2015.
