Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal CityWalk


OH MY GOSH!!!! I got to dine at the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal CityWalk and I am so excited to talk about this restaurant! Once you sit down take a few minutes to enjoy the story about the creation of the restaurant it adds wonder and excitement to your dining experience.

Professor Doctor Penelope Tibeaux-Tinker Toothsome and Jacques are wonderfully interactive. They walk around the restaurant and greet the guests and love to take pictures together. The atmosphere is steam punk inspired, with many items from Doctor Penelope’s home and maps from her family located all around. It's definitely worth exploring!

There is a gift shop that offers candy, chocolate, and macaroons. There are also some unique non-food items that you can purchase to bring home. You can also have some items shipped home but any food items must be pre-packaged in order to be shipped.


Remember, the name of the restaurant is "Chocolate Emporium" so it's no surprise that Doctor Penelope’s favorite flavor is chocolate, but she also knows that not everyone shares that love. (Hard to understand why but that's ok.) So, there are non-chocolate items to choose from as well. If you want to try more than one item I suggest you plan on more than one visit because the portion sizes are huge!


The menu is very large so plan on taking a few minutes to look it over. There are a couple of pages for appetizers, soups and salads, flatbreads, sandwiches, hamburgers, pasta, entrees, and even brunch which is offered all day long.

For our meals we ordered the Southern Fried Chicken BLT sandwich which comes with a side of fries. Mom ordered the Broccoli Cheddar Quiche which came with a side of Glazed Fruit and your choice of soup or salad. I wanted to try something that was different, so I ordered the Gnocchi with Chicken Sweet Peppers Rappini and a Mole cream sauce. It was just unique enough for me and it tasted great.


Then comes the best part of the meal; the milkshakes and desserts! There are 11 different kinds of milkshakes. My family all ordered different kinds, so we could try more flavors. We had Strawberry Cheesecake which tasted like a liquid cheesecake. It had strawberry toppings, then a layer of whipped cream with sprinkles topped with a small slice of cheesecake and a strawberry. Oh, it was good! My daughter chose the Red Velvet Milkshake which tasted like a red velvet cake. It has pieces of red velvet cupcake in the shake with whipped cream, and it was topped off with a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. My son chose the Espresso Buzzz Milkshake. This was a delicious coffee flavored shake with chocolate covered espresso beans in it and topped with biscotti and a cherry. My mother picked the best of all the shakes (at least for chocolate lovers) and that was the Chocolate X5 Milkshake. This was a chocolate shake with chocolate chunks, chocolate covered strawberries, whipped cream and chocolate shavings and a chocolate drizzle on the top. Oh, my it was delicious! You even get to keep the cups they are served in which is great because we had to take our shakes home with us. We were too full to finish them!

There is a full bar stocked with many adult favorites as well as a chocolate stout. You can get a variety of Beer and Bourbons, Gin Scotch, Rum Rye Moonshine, Cognac, Tequila and Cordials. There is also a variety of Red and White wines available. In my opinion this restaurant is WONDERFUL! I went twice, once early lunch time and once mid-afternoon. Both times the wait wasn't too long but when I walked by at Dinner time the line was out the door. I would recommend on visiting at off peak times to have enough time to enjoy the dining experience.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
