Jake's American Bar at Loews Royal Pacific Resort

If you're looking for a casual dining experience after a long day touring the parks, Jake's American Bar is a great choice! Located at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Jake's American Bar is available for lunch or dinner and serves a variety of bar favorites. 

This full-service bar pays homage to the fabled South Seas explorer, Jake McNally, whose seaplane you can see floating in the resort's lagoon. They serve appetizers, entrees and island cocktails like Jake's Margarita or the Island Man Tai. If you prefer beer, they also have Craft Beers, Local Brews and Draft Beers available. 
On our recent visit, we opted to order a few items to share. We ordered the Homemade Pretzel Rods, Jake's Hot Wings and a Cheese Pizza. Jake's Hot Wings were our absolute favorite! They're served with carrots, celery and blue cheese, and the sauce on the wings was great. Just the right amount of spice for us. We're big fans of wings so we're a little picky but these did not disappoint.

We also really enjoyed the Homemade Pretzel Rods. They came with tangy mustard and four cheese porter fondue. You can't go wrong with dipping a pretzel in mustard or cheese! I actually liked the tangy mustard more than the cheese fondue which I found surprising. Both were enjoyable and I found myself alternating dips between the two options.

The Cheese Pizza was just okay. Out of the three items, it was our least favorite. It's hard to go wrong with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce but this pizza was nothing to write home about. It was good but not great.

You can make reservations at Jake's American Bar through OpenTable by accessing the link on the Universal Orlando website or through the OpenTable app. When we visited, we walked up and were able to get a table right away so don't feel like you need to make an advance reservation. If you have a large party or really want/need to dine here, go ahead and make a reservation to be safe. Universal Dining Plans are not accepted at this restaurant so plan accordingly. 

Don't want to dine in the restaurant? Jake's has got you covered! You can place a pickup order and bring the food back to your room or dine al fresco by the pool. Food service is available until 1 hour before close so double check the hours of operations before you place your order. Jake's is currently open Monday through Sunday 11:00AM - 12:00AM but times vary so check before you visit.

We really enjoyed our visit to Jake's American Bar and would definitely visit again if we stay at Loews Royal Pacific Resort. Have you dined at Jake's? Let us know your favorite menu item in the comments.

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.

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

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,
