Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure


Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try.

When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park.

The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake. 

On our recent visit, we decided to split the Shrimp Sushi Katsu Roll appetizer. We were very pleased with our choice! The flash fried panko crust gave it the perfect amount of crunch and the sweet soy, wasabi aioli was delicious. I would absolutely order this starter again.

For my entree, I went with the wedge salad. After a few days eating not-so-healthy theme park favorites, I was in dire need of a salad. You really can't go wrong with a wedge salad. (Anyone else think of Phil Dunphy from Modern Family when they order a wedge salad?) I'll probably order something different the next time I visit but that's not because of anything negative with the salad. I also had my eye on their Pan Roasted Wild Salmon so I may give that a try next time.

Crisp iceberg lettuce, blue cheese vinaigrette, cherry tomatoes, red onion, bacon crumbles, croutons 
My husband ordered the Gnocchi Bolognese and he really liked it. He said he'd order it again so I'd count that as a win. I tried a bite and also really enjoyed it. It had me doubting my choice of the wedge salad but I needed something light and a little healthier.

Slow simmered beef and tomato sauce, cream, crispy Parmesan wafers 
Dining reservations are suggested, for lunch or dinner, and can be made online through the restaurant's page on the Universal Orlando Resort website or by calling 407-224-3663. (Don't forget, your Kingdom Konsultant agent can also help you with making reservations.) We did not have advance dining reservations on our most recent visit but we were able to get a table after a short wait. The Universal Dining Plan is accepted at this restaurant and requires the use of 1 Full-Service Meal which includes 1 entree, 1 non-alcoholic beverage and 1 dining plan dessert. 

We really enjoyed our first visit to Mythos and I can definitely see myself visiting this restaurant again. It's a great option if you're looking for a full service meal within the theme parks.

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

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. Now,
