Paradiso 37 Dining Review

Paradiso 37 is one of the many restaurants in Disney Springs.  It is located in The Landing on the water and has some lovely views of the lake and Aerophile (formerly Characters in Flight).  The restaurant is described as "taste of the Americas" so there's a little bit of everything to please any appetite!  We stopped by for lunch on a weekend and had no problem getting a table for four without a reservation. The area we sat in was light and airy with some fun decor on the walls. Perfect for a lunch break. 

A snapshot of the menu.

We started off with a pitcher of margaritas for the adults to share. These margaritas were very typical, nothing special but the price point was right! Nice and refreshing as well with the fresh squeeze of lime.


 We all ordered something a little different for our entrees.  The food came out nicely paced and everything was good.

Southwest Fajita Salad
Crisp tortilla bowl, mixed greens, sauteed bell peppers, red onions, tomato, shredded cheddar cheese and house vinaigrette with grilled chicken
Quesadilla
Flour tortilla, P37 cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, barbacoa beef
Colombian Bacon Pineapple Burger
8-oz Grilled Angus Steak Burger, Queso Blanco, Pineapple Chutney, Creamy Ketchup, Cilantro Crema, Applewood-smoked Bacon, Sesame-Brioche Bun
Caesar Salad
Crisp romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese crouton and Caesar dressing with grilled chicken
Overall we left feeling full and happy.  This was a great choice for a lunch with a view and no reservations, but with so many other great restaurants popping up at Disney Springs, I wouldn't call this a must-repeat for me.

This restaurant is on the Disney Dining Plan and offers discounts for Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members and Tables in Wonderland. Have you been here?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

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,
