Lumiere's on the Disney Magic

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic is the upscale and elegant of the bunch when it comes to Main Dining Rooms.  As you'd expect being themed off a movie based in France, the menu is French inspired and this is where you will find some of the "fancier" food to give a try!  Lumiere's is located midship on Deck Three off the main atrium.  There are two entrances, the main entrance is off the atrium and the one from the hallway around the side is accessible and often used when there is an event or activity in the atrium.  Lumiere's is often also open for other meals throughout the day, and has a more standard menu when this is the case.

While French food can be intimidating, Disney does a great job making the menu approachable and still a bit familiar while working in some French influence and flavors.  If you are still a little weary of escargot, one of the best things about a Disney Cruise is that if you don't like something, they will gladly bring you something else!   That makes for a great opportunity to go outside your comfort zone and try something new.


On our voyage on the Disney Magic, Lumiere's was our first night dinner rotation so we got to start off with a bang.  (If you're on a longer cruise, you will only see this menu once even if you are in this restaurant multiple times.  Throughout the cruise there will be other specialty menus throughout all of the restaurants.)

All meals start with a bread course, and ours was no different.  We started with Warm French Country Bread with an Olive Spread.  They also have good old butter if you aren't feeling an olive spread.

Then we moved into the first course, trying not to fill up too much on bread!  This is where you could try escargot if you are interested, but we had tried it before and just weren't in the mood tonight.

Iced Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp – With Green Asparagus, Horseradish Cream and Dill Dressing
Breaded and Deep Fried Brie – With an Orange and Cranberry Chutney
Both appetizers were lovely, I'm especially a fan of deep fried brie and it's still one of my favorites after the cruise!  Such a nice twist on a classic fried cheese.  Next up was the Soup & Salad course, and on this night the soups spoke to us, so that's what we both chose for this round.

Potage Parmentier – Leek and Potato Soup
Onion Soup Gratinee – With Baguette and Gruyere Cheese
After we'd had our fill of warm yummy soup, we moved into the main course for the evening.

Crispy Roasted Duck Breast – With Cabbage, Bacon, Shallots, Honey Parsnip Puree, and a Duck Red Wine Jus
Chateaubriand-Roasted Filet Steak – Roasted Filet Steak, Crushed New Potatoes with Shallots, Buttered Green Beans, Red Wine Jus, and a Bearnaise Sauce on the Side
Both our main courses were good, and a sign of good things for the cruise ahead! After all that, it was a challenge but we did save room for dessert.  The souffle here is absolutely a highlight and we enjoyed ours immensely.  However, sometimes you just can't say no to an ice cream sundae and their version was delicious as well!
Grand Marnier Souffle – Infused with fresh Orange Zest and served with Grand Marnier Creme Anglaise
Strawberry Shortcake Sundae – Strawberries, Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Shortcake

Overall it was a wonderful meal and we left there feeling stuffed and satisfied!

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

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
