Review: The I Lava You Float and Fried Potstickers


Hey there, Disney Friends!

Ready for a tasty snack review? This one is a two-for-one since both of the items are at the same location, the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom. We've got a beverage for you, as well as a snack! 

First up, who doesn't LOVE Pixar's animated short "Lava"? We adore it in this house and it's still one of my son's favorite songs to fall asleep to. Of course, we HAD to try the "I Lava You" Float! This colorful float starts with strawberry Fanta soda and is topped with a generous portion of orange-flavored Dole Whip. The swirl is then topped with a drizzle of passion fruit syrup and red popping candy. The whole thing looks like molten lava, (and it's especially clever how Disney even manages to make it hot out so that the lava begins melting as soon as you get it! 😉). 

And it's not just pretty folks, it's pretty tasty too! I wasn't sure how I would feel about it, since I am not wild about passion fruit, but the mix of fruity flavors actually just gave the drink a fruit punchy kind of taste. No one flavor dominated and it was just a refreshing, tropical treat! The portion of orange Dole Whip was huge and easily shareable. In fact, it's probably best to either eat it with a buddy or get a second cup to spoon out some of the Whip into. Otherwise, it's hard to get to the soda before everything is a melty mess. Overall, at $6.99, and a huge, shareable portion, I'd say this one's a winner!

What goes better with a sweet drink than a savory bite or two? The Fried Potstickers are a great accompaniment! The five fried potstickers are filled with pork and veggies and come with a side of orange sesame ginger dipping sauce. They had a nice, crispy exterior, and a crunchy, flavorful filling. Very reminiscent of the 'Ohana potstickers! The dipping sauce really pulled them all together though, so I highly recommend not skimping on the sauce. These were also priced at $6.99 for the serving. In this case, I'd say that's a little high, considering that the dumplings themselves are pretty small, and you only get five of them. There are other snacks that you could get that would be more filling and a better value, but they are good, so if you're craving potstickers, you will NOT be disappointed! 
So, what do you think? Will you be trying one of these out on your next trip to the Magic Kingdom? Keep in mind that all Disney menus are subject to item and pricing changes, so get 'em while you can! Until next time, Friends, have a magical week!

Exciting Disney World Activities Outside of the Parks

Have you ever wondered what there is to do around The Walt Disney World Resort beside visit the Theme Parks or shop at Disney Springs? There are so many great recreational activities right on property.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
