'Ohana Review


‘Ohana means family. So when you get to take your first trip as grown-ups with your brother and his family, you have to dine at the place where family is the focus.

Dining at ‘Ohana* changes you. With the food and warmth of the people and the welcoming surroundings of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, it is hard not to fall in love with all it has to offer.
And then you have the food.

When you are brought in by your cousin, you pass the warmth of the Pineapple-Coconut Bread. You immediately start to feel your soul filling, and you haven’t even eaten anything yet!

Once seated, the mixed greens salad is served to you family style! Don’t worry if you finish it...there is more where that came from!

Following the salad is my personal favorite, the pork dumplings. I dream of the pork dumplings and honey coriander chicken wings...but mostly...of the dumplings! The teriyaki noodles and fried vegetables are packed with flavor and another family favorite!!! Again, don’t worry if you run out! Just ask your cousin and they will bring you more of everything you love!
As you are eating the dumplings, and noodles, and dumplings, and vegetables, and dumplings...long skewers of savory beef, chicken and shrimp are brought around to each table. The sweet-n-sour chicken, Szechuan Steak, and Spicy shrimp are out of this world delicious! And don’t worry if you don’t eat one of the offerings! You can pick and choose which you want, and again, you can always ask for more!

To accompany this fabulous family feast, one should consider celebrating with a specialty cocktail. Festive drinks from the Tambu Lounge are offered at ‘Ohana. And of course, you can't forget the wonderful dessert to round out this amazing family meal! Yum!

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
