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

Fast Food Boulevard at Universal Studios Florida

Fast Food Boulevard is located in the Springfield section of Universal Studios Florida at Universal Orlando Resort and is a must-do for any Simpsons fan!  This home to several quick-service dining locations has something for everyone. It is a great stop that will make everyone's belly happy even if you aren't a die-hard fan. The food choices range from the famous Krusty Buger to pizza, from fried fish to salad, and even specialty non-alcoholic beverages and plenty in between. If the variety of food options wasn't enough to entice you, the theming is on point and you feel like you've walked into an episode of the Simpsons.  I especially love to sit in Moe's Tavern because it just gives me those Homer Simpson vibes and is a little smaller and out of the hustle and bustle of the main area. One of my favorite details is the mural of all the Simpsons characters on the wall, it's just amazing! And a great backdrop for a beverage or two.   At Luigi's you will find
