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

Exciting Disney World Activities Outside of the Parks

Have you ever wondered what there is to do around The Walt Disney World Resort beside visit the Theme Parks or shop at Disney Springs? There are so many great recreational activities right on property. If your family is ready to step outside the parks and see what other fun excursions are offered, check out this list of ideas: Golf Tee off at one of Disney’s three award winning, Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole courses - Disney’s Lake Buena Vista, Disney’s Magnolia, or Disney’s Palm Golf Course.

Oak Trail is a walking course. Want to get a quick game in on the back 9 before heading to the Parks? Reserve the "Sunrise 9" option, and breakfast is included! Reservations: 407

Tips for Scoring a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group

Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience. No spoilers here (aside from some pictures), but this attraction is absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, it can also be challenging to actually get to experience. Rise of the Resistance is currently the only Walt Disney World attraction that requires guests to join a virtual queue. There is no standby line, FastPass+ or Single Rider Line available at this time. (This was true even before COVID-19.) So, how do you join this virtual queue and get assigned to a boarding group? We at Kingdom Konsultant Travel have compiled some of the best tips and tricks to improve your chances of joining the virtual queue.  It's important to know that for this post we're focusing on Walt Disney World's version of the attraction, but many of these tips can be used for the Disneyland version of the attraction as well.  TIP #1: Check y
