La Creperie de Paris


October 1st was a special day at Walt Disney World Resort as it kicked off the Most Magical Celebration for the 50th anniversary of the parks in Florida.  While many people flocked to the Magic Kingdom, we made our way over to Epcot as it was also the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and La Creperie de Paris in the France Pavilion in World Showcase.

This new area is a stunning addition to the already beautiful pavilion, and since it is new, the area is definitely seeing its fair share of traffic right now.  La Creperie has a quick service window for crepes to go, but we opted for the full table service experience for our first time here.  We arrived at park opening and after about a 20 minute wait we were escorted to our table and greeted by our server who was absolutely fantastic.  Honestly, all of the Cast Members we were to encounter on this day were going to be wonderful, but he definitely got us off on the right foot.  

We decided to go all in and did the Prix Fixe Menu each, for $33 for three courses and a beverage, it seemed like a great deal to us! Our sparkling ciders came in no time, but we also saw plenty of people kicking off their day with mimosas as well which would be a great pairing to this meal too.  We chose a demi sec and a rose, and both were delightful.  We went with a soup and a salad to start, and then let our server guide us to the best crepe options to order and were on our way to a three course breakfast.
Salade Maison: mixed greens, tomatoes (no tomatoes) onions & vinaigrette
Soupe du Jour: it was potato and leek today

The salad was crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of dressing.  Nothing too fancy at all, which was really just lovely.  The soup was comforting yet surprisingly light on flavor, setting you up for the meal ahead.  Also, I really just loved the bowl it was served in.

In no time it was time for another round of drinks and our savory crepes, otherwise known as galettes.  These are made with a buckwheat flour which I enjoyed, but if you prefer a lighter crepe you can request they be made with the dessert crepe batter.  We ordered the Chevre and the Savoyarde but the Classique was also recommended and seemed to be very popular and well liked as well from tables around us.  

Savoyarde: raclette cheese, onion, imported Bayonne ham
Chevre: goat cheese, spinach, walnuts

Both of these crepes were honestly so good, but for me the star was the savoyarde.  That imported ham was just something special and really elevated the whole dish.  The crepes weren't overly filled so there was a great balance between filling and crepe with every bite with familiar yet unique flavors.  The walnuts on the chevre dish added a great bit of crunch and texture as well.

While we were already starting to get full, it was time for our sweet crepes to come.  We once again went with our server's recommendations and went with the Gourmande and the Melba, adding a shot of Grand Marnier to the Melba for a little extra kick.  You can also add whipped cream or ice cream to any crepe for an additional charge as well. 

Melba: peach, red berries sauce, almonds
Gourmande: hazelnut chocolate spread, whipped cream
Once again both choices were really wonderful, and overall we were so impressed with our meal here.  For me, the Gourmande edged out the Melba because I like chocolate and the little crispies on top really did it for me.  The grand marnier added a great depth of flavor to the Melba though and they were certainly not stingy with that extra shot at all! 

The atmosphere is casual and relaxed yet nice, the service was spectacular, and the food was wonderful and at a great price point.  We left feeling stuffed and ready to tackle the day at Epcot.  I would highly recommend this restaurant based on this experience and will definitely be making a trip back in the future!

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.

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

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,
