Ears the News with Richard

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 cupcakes. Reservations can be made beginning today by visiting DisneyWorld.com/dine, or calling 407-WDW-DINE.  The event begins on July 5 2015. Until then, the existing Tomorrowland Terrace dessert party continues to be available.

Grand Floridian Cafe Review

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 gem.

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 guaranteed.
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 us.


We started our breakfast off wi…

As of today (March 20, 2015), Disney offers breakfast service at Be Our Guest restaurant. 


It will be offered in a test capacity through to June 18 2015.

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.

Agent Spotlight - Kathy

Where do you call home?  Knoxville, Tennessee (close to the Great Smoky Mountains)

Are you married? 
Yes, for 3 years now!

Any children?  I have three amazing children: Christopher (31), Casey (27) and Caitlin (24) plus one grandchild (Carter—2) and another on the way!

Favorite vacation destination?  Walt Disney World, of course! I do love England and Ireland though.  I was born in England and half of my family is still there.  I love going home to visit.

Favorite Walt Disney World Resort?  The Wilderness Lodge.  I love the northwest lodge feel.  I didn’t believe Disney could pull off that lodge look until I stayed there.  It’s like being in Florida at your favorite place in the whole world and then escaping to a northern lakeside lodge at night.  It is so peaceful and relaxing.

Favorite Walt Disney World attraction?
  It’s a Small World.  I force my kids to ride it every time and, of course, halfway through they are singing too! Oh, and then The Haunted Mansion and Peter Pan’s Flight and S…

Nine Dragons Review

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. Th…
