Fast Food Boulevard at Universal Studios Florida

Fast Food Boulevard is located in the Springfield section of Universal Studios Florida at Universal Orlando Resort and is a must-do for any Simpsons fan!  This home to several quick-service dining locations has something for everyone. It is a great stop that will make everyone's belly happy even if you aren't a die-hard fan. The food choices range from the famous Krusty Buger to pizza, from fried fish to salad, and even specialty non-alcoholic beverages and plenty in between.

If the variety of food options wasn't enough to entice you, the theming is on point and you feel like you've walked into an episode of the Simpsons.  I especially love to sit in Moe's Tavern because it just gives me those Homer Simpson vibes and is a little smaller and out of the hustle and bustle of the main area.
One of my favorite details is the mural of all the Simpsons characters on the wall, it's just amazing! And a great backdrop for a beverage or two.
 

At Luigi's you will find a variety of personal pizzas. 
The Frying Dutchman is home to deep-fried seafood.  There are a variety of platters and baskets to choose from. 
Cletus' Chicken Shack has fried chicken, chicken wings, chicken and waffles, and chicken sandwiches.
Krusty Burger of course has the famous Krusty Burger along with hot dogs and some other burger-like sandwich choices (including veggie burgers). 



In addition to those pictured, there is Lisa's Teahouse of Horror serving up salads and other lighter fare and Flaming Moe's serving specialty non-alcoholic beverages.  You can pick up your favorite adult beverages inside Moe's Tavern adjacent to Fast Food Boulevard.  Of course, you can also pick up the iconic Lard Lad donuts here too!
We settled in at Moe's while we waited for our food order.  One of my best tips for a day in the parks is to bring your own coozie! It helps keep drinks cold and is a fun way to show off your style.  (And yes, I did carry my Harry Potter love into the Simpsons land.) 

We opted to try the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich from Cletus' and the Clogger Burger from Krusty Burger. Both were great choices but the Clogger Burger was a clear favorite (and is a great choice if you are on the Universal Dining Plan!) 
Waffle Sandwich (Double battered, extra crispy fried chicken breast between two waffles with maple syrup mayo with a side of fruit instead of tater tots)
Clogger Burger (2/3 lb. burger topped with Applewood smoked bacon, secret sauce, cheddar cheese sauce, a giant tomato slice, and iceberg lettuce, on a specialty bun. Served with Kurly fries.)
Having a burger from Krusty Burger just felt so iconic to us and was a huge meal and very satisfying.  Which fast food spot would you chose on your visit? Let us know in the comments below!

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 -

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

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,
