Cinderella's Royal Table


When it is a little prince or princess’s first time dining at Cinderella’s Castle, you know it is going to be a special day! 
 
Upon entering Cinderella Castle, you are in awe of its grandness. Every time I come here, I am still taken with the breathtaking details and beauty of this castle. And of course, I am most thrilled to see my two favorite characters, Jaq and Gus-Gus, hanging out in the castle, keeping a watchful eye over Cinderella. 
Do you see Jaq and Gus-Gus?
Those who dine here will begin their experience with a photo and an opportunity to meet with Cinderella*. Once formally introduced to our host, you will be escorted up the grand staircase to your dining area. (Character dining is currently not available at this restaurant due to COVID-19 guidelines.)

After receiving wishing stars, wands, and swords, dinner will begin.

Cinderella, of course, did not invite you here to dine alone. On this particular evening, we had the honor of meeting Rapunzel, Aurora, Snow White and Ariel*! Cinderella’s friends may change from time to time. They are busy princesses after all!

We started our meal with an assortment of charcuterie and the Castle Salad. I highly recommend everyone ordering something different so you can try a bit of everything!

Dinner for the grown-ups was the beef and the kids had it too! Remember what I said about trying a bit of everything? We couldn’t help it! 

For dessert, the grown-ups enjoyed the Jaq and Gus. I cannot resist the words cheesecake, and it was named after my favorite two mice. Sorry Mickey! At first glance, I was expecting a dense traditional cheesecake. This had all the flavor and decadence but without the feeling of leaving uncomfortable and stuffed! The kiddo’s had the most fun though. At Cinderella’s, you can play with your dessert! The build your own cupcake dessert, the littlest guests are able to fully customize their own cupcake. And the best part, eating the sprinkles and frosting that is left over! 
The menu items we ordered were:

Castle Salad
Hearty Mixed Greens, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Riesling-marinated Golden Raisins, Pink Lady Apples, and Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette (Plant-based)

Charcuterie
A Chef's selection of Cured Meats, Castle Pickles, and Accompaniments

Tenderloin of Beef
Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Celery Root Mash, Seasonal Vegetables, and Sauce Bordelaise

Jaq & Gus
Whipped Cheesecake with Seasonal Flavors and Garnishes

Beef Tenderloin (Kids' Menu)
Served with choice of two (2) Selections and choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Minute Maid® Apple Juice

Build-Your-Own-Cupcake (Kids' Menu)
Vanilla Cupcake with Cinderella’s Blue Icing and decorations to garnish your Royal Dessert

*Character Dining is currently not available at this location. 
**Photos and personal experience at Cinderella's Royal Table were taken prior to COVID-19 safety protocols

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.

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house
