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…

An evening at Trader Sam’s

Aloha! I recently had a short trip to Walt Disney World to catch up on some of the new things. As you know, I loved Harambe Market and thought this would be the pinnacle of my trip – but it wasn’t. After visiting Trader Sam’s to check out the much-hyped tiki bar, I realized that…

Harambe Market at Animal Kingdom

Jambo! This extensive photo post is of one of the latest areas to open at Animal Kingdom: Harambe Market! While – at its core – this is nothing but a food court, it’s done with a level of style and detail that is just wonderful to experience. I won’t try to write flowery prose about…

A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas

Avast! Over the past year or so, you may have noticed new flourishes and thematic details appearing around Adventureland. These touches weren’t added without reason; there is a new game responsible for all of them: A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas. This is a super fun way to spend a little time in…

Last Christmas at Camp Minnie-Mickey

Welcome back, As most of you know, Camp Minnie-Mickey at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is now closed to make way for construction of the new AVATAR-themed area of the park.
