Flying Fish Review


Flying Fish is one of my favorite little restaurants on Disney's BoardWalk. It’s my go to for a grown ups night out!


The menu changes occasionally but each time I go back, I'm glad I did. Full disclosure, I am not a big fish person, but I love their nori bread and also enjoy the lobster with squid ink pasta. 

The aesthetic is sleek dark blues and greys, with an impressive hanging glass work of art. It's enjoyable to have a view of my meal being made as well. Comments I’ve heard while introducing friends and family to Flying Fish include “These are the best scallops I’ve ever had” and “I wish this appetizer came in a meal portion. I want to lick the plate.”
It’s environment is snazzy enough to dress up for, and comfortable enough to stop by last minute in your standard, laid back park attire. It is a signature dining experience however, so no swimsuits, tank tops, or flip flops are allowed.
It’s not uncommon for me to notice a last minute reservation available, so if I’m nearby and feel like a relaxing sit down dinner, I snag one.
Here are a few more menu items you can try, the oak grilled romaine and potato crusted snapper came highly recommended by our server, and that snapper was a home run!  Or if you aren't a seafood fan, the filet is also quite wonderful here. 

Oak-grilled Romaine with Buttermilk-Cream FraƮche, Pecorino Romano, Marinated Vegetables

Lobster Bisque with Aged Brandy, Chive Oil
Potato-wrapped Red Snapper with Leek Fondue, Cassis-Red Wine Reduction

Filet Mignon with Herbed Risotto, Honshimeji Mushroom, Broccolini, Soubise Sauce

If you're looking for a new Disney date night spot, or just a new restaurant to try, I highly recommend Flying Fish!

If you enjoy libations, make sure to stop at AbracadaBar before or after your meal. It's the zany and unique bar next door that you’re sure to remember!  Be sure to check out all the details around the lounge, there's quite a bit to see.

House of Blues Brunch

Brunch is probably my favorite meal to go out for, and Disney Springs has some hidden gems in the brunch department. House of Blues offers weekend brunch with one of the best deals on property, bottomless mimosas!  If you’re up for it, House of Blues offers a laid back atmosphere with live music for brunch. It is available Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm, with the full menu available after 12pm. We were sat in the back room where we couldn’t see the stage but could hear it and it was a great vibe!  Bottomless mimosas and coffee were the popular choice for beverages, but they also offer a variety of brunch cocktails and other options. Bottomless mimosa! We were a party of 8 and hungry, so we started with an order of nachos from the lunch menu and they were a HUGE portion, so glad we had a lot of people to share them with.  BBQ Nachos - Four cheese sauce, avocado, roasted corn salsa, pickled red onion, tomato, Memphis BBQ sauce, cilantro crema, cotija cheese. Chicken, Brisket or Pul

Carthay Circle Review

The Kingdom Konsultant team had the pleasure of being invited to the Disneyland Resort for agent training recently, and the first night the whole group was there, we went to Carthay Circle for dinner. The restaurant is a model of the famed Carthay Circle Theater, where Snow White debuted in 1937. The restaurant is elegant and beautiful, but not pretentious. They are used to people in theme park attire. We had trouble securing a reservation for 18, but we were able to get 3 smaller reservations and the restaurant was accommodating to seat us at tables next to each other. We had beautiful tables on the balcony overlooking Disney California Adventure and a dazzling sunset.  Some of us ordered entrees, some ordered appetizers but mostly we ordered a lot of things to share! Every table tried the Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls, which were served with Calabrian Chili-Pine Nut Romesco Butter. These were delicious , and the butter was the real star.  Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls & Calab

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes

Black Tap Burgers & Shakes is located at the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort.  It is a fast-casual restaurant, meaning you order your items at the counter, but then they bring it to the table for you.  They have a selection of burgers, wings, salads and chicken and a fun milkshake menu.  If you just want a shake, there's also a walkup window outside, but some special creations can only be ordered for dine-in. We placed our order at the counter and noticed all the tables inside were full. We found a table outside and hung out while we waited for our food to come. They have a full bar and craft beers on tap, but I was surprised to get wine in a can. Strawberry Shortcake Shake We had hoped to have this Crazy Shake for dessert, but it actually came before any of our food. The Strawberry Shortcake is described as a vanilla frosted rim with crumbled cake topped with a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar, pink & white twisty pop, whipped cream, strawberry drizzle
