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.

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.

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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
