Top 3 Reasons to Dine at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop


Ice cream on a hot Disney day is a special kind of magic! As much as I love a good ol Mickey Bar or sundae from The Plaza, if I want to be extra about my ice cream experience, I head over to Beaches & Cream. (Non-dairy frozen dessert options are also offered at this restaurant.) Recently renovated and expanded, this adorable restaurant is located at Disney's Beach Club Resort. Listed below are three reasons you might want a reservation at this "soda shop vibe" restaurant. 

You want to experience the kitchen sink:
Ordering the Kitchen Sink really is an event. Check out the video below for what you can expect:

I personally recommend the chocolate kitchen sink. As fun as the original is, I once had a fruit bite mixed with mint chocolate chip that was not quite a delight. Whatever combo you get with the chocolate, it should blend well.

You want an insta worthy shake:
There are several restaurants on WDW property that offer milkshakes topped with extra goodies, but none are located in such a cute environment. If you’re looking for a precious Disney date, go split one of their milkshakes!
 

You want some casual comfort food:
I usually order the grilled cheese and tomato soup, or the chili & cheese tots if I’m in the mood for something savory. There is a selection of burgers (plant and meat based) and sandwiches as well. This is a must do on my personal Disney trips if I’m staying at any of the BoardWalk area resorts. If I’m staying elsewhere, I usually just stop by for a chilly treat. 

That’s the scoop on Beaches & Cream! I enjoyed writing this a whole waffle lot.

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,
