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!

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
