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.

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

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend. Charcuterie: Ordering a charcuterie board for your family or party is a great way to enhance an arrival day when you might be a bit snacky or maybe for a pool day at the resort.  It's the perfect snack to munch on throughout the day and makes you feel just a little bit fancy.   Journey Across the Board This is the charcuterie you order to feel bougie and pampered and really elevate your trip.  Their boards are premium and they can be designed and personalized in so many ways. You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
