Why You'll Love Planet Hollywood at Disney Springs

Planet Hollywood is located in Disney Springs, and you can't miss it - it looks like an observatory with it's huge domed roof. If you're looking for a memorable and lively restaurant, check this place out! Movie lovers and TV show buffs will love seeing all the authentic Hollywood props. There are so many dining choices at Disney Springs, but if you have kids or teens, I suggest Planet Hollywood!
High School Musical Props - Go Wildcats!
Reasons why you will love dining here:

1. There wasn't a wait time. We were a few minutes early for our reservation, and they sat us right away. We were having a good time before we even got to the table. A Frozen song was blasting, the bass was pumping, and we got to browse some props from famous movies on our way up the stairs such as Dorothy's dress from The Wizard of Oz



2. The props, memorabilia, and artifacts from our favorite movies and shows were all around us, and our table had pieces from Pirates of the Caribbean inside it. We were seated next to Marvel's Jessica Jones' outfit and leather jacket. Not far away I could see Leonardo DiCaprio's costume from Titanic! There are over 500 items currently on display; but they’re changed out on a regular basis, so you may see something different every time you visit! My favorite one was the Chewbacca suit. So many cool photo-ops here!
3. The music - Warning: This is not a quiet and relaxing meal! There is a 3-story-tall, curved movie screen that plays movie soundtracks, and popular hits as music videos. We got to jam out to some songs from High School Musical, Avatar, The Lion King, Frozen, and Sweet Caroline (yes, everyone sang along!) among others. They have a state-of-the-art sound system too, so it's pretty loud, like a movie theater. A DJ is there at night to spin the Top 40 hits. 
I'll never let go, Jack.


4.  The great food! Chef Guy Fieri from the Food Network has the best burgers at sea, on Carnival Cruise Line, which my family loves! When they saw his food on the menu here, it was a deciding factor on booking the reservation. My husband got the Original Ringer Burger, with a crispy onion ring and super melty cheese.  I had the superb Morgan’s Veggie burger, both of which come with huge portions of his spicy fries. The kids loved their meals too! The kids meals were all $9.99 while the burgers were around $18. 

Plain Jane burger wasn't so plain!
Their Menu has many other options too, like salads, sandwiches, pasta and amazing starters like Nachos Grande. They offer great entrees like Sirloin, BBQ Ribs, Slow Roasted Chicken Breast, and Sesame Ginger Salmon. These range from $26-30.

They have a decent wine and beer selection too.  You can sit outdoors on the covered terrace where you’ll enjoy views of Disney Springs. There’s even live music every night! 

Have a sweet tooth?? Try a classic milkshake, or the Brownie Cheesecake Star Jar! This is a Double chocolate brownie layered with chocolate pudding and cheesecake, topped with vanilla ice cream plus caramel and chocolate sauce drizzle!
5. The atmosphere - Everyone was having a great time, it was like a big party! People were singing along to their favorite songs, cheering, walking around taking photos of the props, and the staff were so upbeat and fun! If it's your birthday they'll come sing and embarrass you, but you do get an awesome looking dessert out of it. 
As you exit, you'll go through a gift shop, so pick up a shirt, mug, or shot glass to remember the fun you had there! We will definitely be back, it's our new favorite Disney Springs restaurant!

Lunch: 11:30 AM - 3:55 PM
Dinner: 4:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Happy Stargazing!

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 -

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house

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,
