Coral Reef Restaurant Review

Enjoy great views of the aquarium while you dine Coral Reef Restaurant is a tucked-away gem of a dining experience in Epcot’s Future World. Its entrance is just around the corner from the entrance to The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion, but you might miss it if you are not looking for it! Once inside, guests are greeted by a hostess in the reception area decorated in ocean blues, but the real feature of Coral Reef Restaurant – the massive aquarium – is hidden further inside the restaurant, allowing for lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” when being seated. The seating at Coral Reef is auditorium-style, meaning the tables and chairs are arranged on different levels from the lowest near the tank glass to higher up the further back you go in the restaurant, so that all guests have an opportunity to see the “show.” That show includes many species of fish and marine life, including large sea turtles, stingrays, sharks – and even the occasional scuba diver – swimming by throughout dinner.

5 Reasons to STILL Visit The Studios!

Hey there, Disney Guys and Gals!      Hope everyone is having a good day! So, I overheard some young Guests in Animal Kingdom last week commenting on The Studios to a family that was dining next to them. It sounded to me like the family was here for the first time, and the younger Guests were locals. They were telling the family that it wasn't "even worth going to The Studios at this point", and discouraging them from using their park tickets on a Studios visit. They referenced the fact that several attractions have closed and said that there is "nothing there now."  If you know me, you know it took a LOT for me to not interject here. I can't stand to hear my fellow Guests, or Cast Members, or ANYONE really giving bad advice or misinformation about Disney to other Guests... especially  first time  Guests! These people had never been to Disney before and they were being advised to  skip  The Studios all together? Is it  really  not worth going there ri

Meet Kingdom Konsultant's Newest Blog Contributor!

Hi everyone!! My name is Lori, I am a Disney-holic and I have the honor of being the new guest blog contributor here at Kingdom Konsultant Travel. I am thrilled beyond measure to have this amazing opportunity. What better activity for a self-proclaimed Disney addict than to expound on my favorite subject and hopefully share a little Disney magic in the process?! In the "real world" I am a remediation educator in a small community elementary school in rural NC. I have "been happily ever after" married to my best friend and other (better??!) half, Shawn, for almost 23 years. Cinderella isn't the only one who got her prince! We have been greatly blessed with 2 sons, ages 18 and 16, and one sweet princess age 13. Yes, I am living in a house full of teenagers. (Prayers are welcome!!) I admit I may be a bit biased but I think they are some of the most amazing young people around. Two obedience challenged dogs add to the general chaos that is my life. My days a

GRAND OPENING! Welcome to the 2017 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival!

Happy March, Disney Guys and Gals!!!      It's Flower and Garden time!!!! Yes, Epcot's newest festival, Festival of the Arts, just closed a few days ago, but back to back, we have another fantabulously awesome festival to enjoy! Welcome to the 2017 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival!!! Hooray! (That's a lot of exclamation points. I apologize. I'll try and reel myself in.)      I LOVE Flower and Garden! (Dang it! There's another one!) It's an amazingly colorful, vibrant and fragrant festival, the engulfs ALL of Epcot, and gives Guests two months of gorgeous flowers and topiaries, incredible rock concerts, exciting opportunities to learn about how to grow and maintain their own gardens, AND delish food and drinks from the Outdoor Kitchens! (Ok, I am really excited about Flower and Garden, so there are going to be lots of exclamation points in the post. We will just have to deal!)      This year's festival is bigger and better than ever
