La Cava del Tequila


TEQUILA! Anyone else have that song go through your head when you go to La Cava del Tequila or just me? Oh La Cava, how I love your Margaritas! If you haven't been and you love a good Margarita, make this a part of your next trip to EPCOT. It's located inside the Mexico Pavilion to the right when you enter the marketplace. 

When you first enter La Cava, it definitely has that party vibe going! It has the feel of stepping into a little hole in the wall or a Cave as the name depicts, with over 200 different brands of Tequila, let the party begin!

With it's warm décor and original artifacts celebrating the Mexican heritage, they truly make you feel right at home. It is small, with seating for up to 30.  And the way that it is situated, you don't see what is going on out in the Marketplace. It's an easy way to lose track of time, which doesn't bother me one bit! 

I usually go in with a few friends and we will grab a table and order some appetizers.  Guacamole and/or Salsa and Chips are usually what we grab. 

You can get other items such as Shrimp Cocktail (photo below), which they put their own spin on by adding a little heat.

It's a great place to sit, get out of the heat and enjoy a cocktail or 3 with your friends!

The most popular margarita by far is the Avocado Margarita.

My personal favorite is the Blood Orange Margarita! They rim it with a chile-lime powder so you get some heat. 

I also had one called the Maelstrom (photo below) which was also quite tasty! Mango puree and habanero peppers, this drink had quite a kick to it!

Having a “Tequila Ambassador” on hand to educate you on the history of tequila-making is pretty cool too!  Don't want a Margarita? How about a Tequila flight instead?!

Try your hand at making everyone's favorite Margarita!

The hours of operation at La Cava del Tequila are 11am-8pm.  If you haven't tried this little hole in the wall, put it on your list for next time.  Stop in and have a drink, you may just see me there too!  Disfrutar! Enjoy!

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. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Narcoossee’s – A Forgotten Favorite

Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort I’ve been vacationing at Walt Disney World since I was four years old.   Throughout the years, I have eaten at countless restaurants across the parks and resorts.   I have my fair share of favorites that I always make sure to visit on each trip but some restaurants just don’t make the cut on each and every trip.   Sadly, Narcoossee’s was one of those restaurants. I had been to Narcoossee’s once as a child and I remember enjoying the view and the food but I didn’t have a lot of memories of the place.   On a trip in 2009 with my parents, we decided to revisit the restaurant and we all enjoyed our meal but for some reason it just didn’t stand out to me.   Thankfully, we decided to go back to Narcoossee’s in 2012 and it was one of our favorite meals of the trip!   A forgotten favorite had returned as a front-runner for my favorite restaurant and this time, I wasn’t going to forget it! I've visited Narcoossee's on almost all t
