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.

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
