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

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
