Easter Fun! Chocolate Eggs at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort

Happy Spring, Disney Fans!

     I hope everyone is finally getting a little warmer weather. Here in Orlando, the first day of Spring brought yet another dip into the chilly 60's, but now we are back to our more seasonable 80's. You poor Northerners! I hope you are thawing out! You could always head this way!

     This past weekend was the end of my kiddo's Spring Break, so we hit up Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for our annual visit to see the hand-carved chocolate eggs in the lobby. Every year, the pastry chefs at the Grand Floridian go nuts, making these huge chocolate eggs come to life with scenes from favorite Disney movies and more. They are amazing! Some of the best eggs get saved from year to year, so there are usually some repeats from previous years, but also several newbies. Would you like to check them out? Here you go! (I apologize in advance for the blurry ones. It was hard to see in the lobby because the sun was coming in so brightly, so I didn't see how the pics came out until after we left.)

     Aren't they amazing? They really are a beautiful sight to behold and really incredible when you think about the painstaking work that had to be put into each one. The eggs will be on display until April 10th. If you don't get a chance to see them this year, you can make plans to see them in 2019, when you reach out to my friends at Kingdom Konsultant Travel to help you plan your next Disney vacation! 

     Until next time, have a magical week!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
