Wine Bar George, a Review

Hello all!  Agent Maci here with a review of dinner at Wine Bar George at Disney Springs.

With so many new restaurants opening in Disney Springs lately, it can be hard to choose a place to have dinner for a Disney Springs night out.  However, for us it was easy for our date night amidst a family vacation.  We love a good wine bar and Wine Bar George opened to rave reviews so we had to give it a try!


The atmosphere inside the restaurant is pretty casual with a nice bar in the entrance and a few rooms of tables covering two stories.  There are also tables outside on the balcony which can have great views of Disney Springs on a nice day or night.  We had made a reservation and were taken upstairs and sat at a lovely two top on the balcony for our dinner.  I will make note that both the inside and outside areas were quite loud, so not exactly a romantic atmosphere but a fun one for sure.

How to “Eat Keto” at Disney World

Our most recent visit took place over seven nights at the Yacht and Beach Club resorts (two nights at Yacht Club, and five nights in a one-bedroom villa at the Beach Club Villas). While there may be an exhaustive list that details every keto-friendly option available on property, here are my overall five tips for “eating keto” or following a similarly low-carb diet at Disney World:

Substitute carbs for veggies 
Most menu items, whether quick- or table-service, come with a starchy side-item like French fries, chips or potatoes. In our experience, requesting to change that item to a vegetable was almost always accommodated. Some of the substitutions were broccolini, coleslaw, asparagus, and side salad.

The Tomorrowland Speedway at the Magic Kingdom has reopened following a closure for the re-routing of track to make way for the addition of the Tron coaster.

Changes to the ride are minor, with new paint and refreshed landscaping, along with a slight re-routing of the track.
Disney has given us a few more details on how your smart phone will become your Star Wars Datapad when you are in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

From Scott Trowbridge:

Use the “hacking” feature to interact with certain door panels or droids to see their memories, or open your “scanning” tool to peek inside of cargo crates you may spot while walking around. The handy “translation” tool will help you understand Aurebesh (the written language of the Star Wars galaxy) signs throughout Black Spire Outpost, and you can even tap into and decrypt signals from antennas or communications devices and listen to secret messages with the “tuning…
