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!

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 décor 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
