Ale & Compass Restaurant and Lounge

Ale and Compass is located at Disney's Yacht Club Resort and serves up New England comfort food and seafood classics while making you feel like you are dining in a cozy lighthouse. Next door, you'll find the Ale and Compass Lounge which is even cozier with comfy chairs around small tables and a fireplace and serves up delicious cocktails to wet your appetite. 

I started my evening in the Ale and Compass Lounge with a cocktail while I waited for my table to be ready.  I had used the "walk up" feature and was able to secure a late table for the evening.

It wasn't long before my phone informed me that my table was ready and I made my way over to the host stand.  I was dining solo this evening and the service was just lovely, not making me feel awkward or rushed, just welcomed to a wonderful meal. 


I couldn't resist starting my meal with some Parker House Rolls from the appetizer menu which were elevated by a variety of spreads.  The bread was warm and soft, a great start to the meal.

I decided to have some fish for my entrée as it just seemed to fit with the vibes of the restaurant.  The fish was cooked beautifully and the pan-fried risotto cake was such an interesting side dish, I loved it! The sauce wasn't my favorite and my server was quick to bring me another option which was wonderful.

As one of the last diners of the evening, the restaurant started to clear out as I was eating my entrée.  It made for such a nice, peaceful meal.  I wouldn't hesitate to return back here again!

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
