Royal Palace Redux

Ahoy! While I have already posted about Royal Palace once before, I feel this beautiful space is worth photos from my second cruise. Beautiful light fixtures, lovely portraits of royalty, and service on par with queens and kings of yore make this restaurant a wonderful experience. Melissa wrote a review over on her site, and…

Run(a)way to Relaxation: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Kungaloosh! I don’t have too much to say about Jock Lindsey’s other than: I LOVE THIS PLACE. The food is great, the atmosphere is better, and the service is absolutely (flying) aces! Melissa wrote up a whole bunch more on her post over here, while I just shared a ton of photos from our two…

Star Wars Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios

Welcome back, friends! This post will be short on the words, because it’s incredibly self-explanatory: These photos are what you will see when you visit Star Wars Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios. That’s it. Let me know if you buy a $10,000 statue, I’d like to rent it for parties. Click to enlarge and please…

Skipper Canteen – An Instant Classic

Ahoy, fellow travelers! Recently, Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland welcomed a much-needed table-service restaurant: Skipper Canteen. I loved my visit here with a couple of friends and am hopeful my next trip to Skipper Canteen won’t see watered-down Magic Kingdom cuisine like burgers and hot dogs. There are over 100 pictures in the galleries below, and I’ve…

Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular

I mean, seriously love taking pictures of fireworks — clicking here will prove that. In recent years, Walt Disney World has brought back the fireworks of my childhood…

Adults Only: Serenity Bay on Castaway Cay

Welcome ashore, One of my favorite places on earth is Castaway Cay – the private island Disney owns and uses solely for Disney Cruise Guests. My favorite spot on this favorite island is Serenity Bay: the adults-only stretch of amazing beach, snorkeling area, bar, and restaurant. As per usual, Melissa wrote a more-extensive post on…

Cretaceous Christmas

Merry Christmas! One of the oft-maligned lands at Walt Disney World is Dinoland, U.S.A. I love it – without apology – for what it is: a perfectly-themed roadside attraction and carnival that sprung up in the middle of the 20th Century around the site of an archaeological dig. Melissa has written much more about this…

Dance on the Disney Dream

Ahoy hoy! Nothing says “drop it down to the flo’ and bring it up slow” like Disney’s five most famous characters: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy. Throw in a couple of chipmunks and Mickey’s dog Pluto for good measure and you’ve got the hottest party on the seven seas – my personal favorite is…

Osborne Lights… Out.

Welcome back! This is the last year for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. Much like my Last Christmas at Camp Minnie-Mickey post, this article may sadden many of you. I hope, rather than making you sad, you’ll bookmark this post and pay it a visit any time you miss the most amazing Spectacle…

Harambe Holidays

Jambo! I visited Animal Kingdom twice last week. It’s no secret that I love Harambe, New Harambe, and Harambe Marketplace, which is why I was so excited to see the Imagineers have been busy decorating my favorite African destination for the holidays! I couldn’t stop taking photos of the creative decorations – some old and…
