DCL - Rotational Dining Basics on the Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line sets itself apart from the competition with their unique "rotational dining" set up. What exactly is rotational dining? I'm glad you asked! Rotational dining is DCL's way to make sure that all guests get to enjoy each of the three themed dining venues on board. Each night of your cruise itinerary your party, tablemates and service team will rotate to one of the three main dining rooms. This gives guests a chance to try multiple restaurants on board while having the same wait staff. Guests will receive their restaurant schedule and table number upon arrival at the cruise terminal through the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App. Each evening, you'll be assigned one of the three restaurants but you'll stay at the same table number each night which makes it easy to remember where you're sitting! You'll also have the same tablemates and servers so you'll start to get familiar with everyone. It's not unheard for guests to build some r

Sanaa Lunch and Dinner Review

Spoiler Alert! Sanaa is one of my favorite hidden gem Walt Disney World dining options. Located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village, it's a table service restaurant with an a la carte menu and a view of roaming animals through the windows. The cuisine is East Africa inspired and the environment is made to feel like diners are sitting under acacia trees. I've dined at Sanaa many times throughout the years and think it's perfect for a mid day meal to escape the heat, or a late night date, if you don't mind missing the animals. There is one can't miss item on the menu that draws diners just as much as the views, and it's the bread service. Served as an appetizer, this options comes with 5 types of naan and and 9 dips. It either comes on one large or two smaller wooden boards. The dipping sauces offer a wide range of things to try and the portion is surprisingly large. That being said, I often like to order the seasonal soup because one just can

1923 on the Disney Wish

Named for the year The Walt Disney Company was founded, 1923 celebrates the legendary animation studio that was founded in Southern California. 1923 is a vintage Disney fan's dream as its filled with over one thousand drawings and props from classic Disney animated films. The restaurant is split into two dining rooms, fittingly named Walt and Roy, after the two brothers behind the world's oldest-running animation studio.  Since the Walt Disney Company was founded in California, the menu at 1923 is inspired by the best cuisine found throughout the Golden State. 1923 features a diverse menu showcasing the region's unique blend of Asian, European and South American influences.  For our cruise on the Disney Wish, we were seated in the Walt Disney side of the restaurant.  The meal started with bread service of fig and olive bread with honey butter dip. I love a good honey butter! Bread Service Fig and Olive Bread with Honey Butter Dip For appetizers, we ordered the Burrata Mozza

Must-Have Cruise Items to Add to Your Packing List

Whether you have cruised before, or this is your first time, check out our must-haves list for some new ideas!  Disney Wish and Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas in Nassau, Bahamas Everyone's cruise needs are different, but this is a general, all-itinerary list of hacks to make your cruise more comfortable. I will follow up with a must-haves list for kids too, so check the blog again before you sail!  I surveyed the other Kingdom Konsultant Agents who are avid cruisers like myself, and these are our must-haves.  1. Collapsible laundry hamper and a trash bag - Keep your dirty clothes separate from your clean clothes, and off the floor. I love the pop up kind because they are cheap, and easy to pack flat in your suitcase. I empty all my dirty or wet clothes into a trash bag before repacking my suitcase to debark the cruise. Then, when I arrive at home, I take that right to the laundry room. It also keeps the rest of my stuff smelling good. You can have your laundry done on the shi

Private Events at Disney Springs - Splitsville

Did you know you can have private events for your celebrations at Walt Disney World? After much research, we narrowed our options down to several Disney Springs locations and ultimately ended up with an event at Splitsville Luxury Lanes.  We chose this option because we know the food is great there and bowling gave our guests something fun to do besides just mix and mingle with one another. Our private event included reserved lanes together and and area with tables for our party, shoe rentals for our guests and a buffet of pizza and sushi (our choices!) We also did the first round of drinks on us but guests were welcome to go to the bar for more if they wanted and we had servers walking around taking care of us as well. While prices do vary based on time of day, type of event etc, we found the value for what we received here was fantastic and our guests raved about the event!  Having the activity really allowed people to have something to talk about to get to know one another and kept
