Disney: Revisiting Liberty Tree Tavern


My son is a HUGE history buff. He especially loves American history and I knew he would love the theming of this restaurant. He hopes one day to be a Constitutional Lawyer.  He hadn’t been to Liberty Tree Tavern since he was three years-old. My daughter and I had been in 2015 and knew he…

Via Napoli


Hope you enjoy this post about Disney World while we are at the State Science Olympiad Competition this weekend. My son is competing in Fast Facts, Crime Busters, and Rocks and Minerals. GO SCIENCE! For some reason this is the first time we have really explored the Italy area in Walt Disney World. I don’t…

Raglan Road


This is one of our favorite stops. We try to make it here at least once every trip because my family loves it so much. The Irish dancers, the music, beer, and food are all perfect for this restaurant. We checked in a bit early and asked to be seated in the main dining room….

Teppan Edo


    Teppan Edo is the Japanese Hibachi restaurant in the World Showcase in Epcot. My daughter and I had dinner at this restaurant two years ago on our mother/daughter trip to Walt Disney World. We loved it so much and thought the rest of the family would love it too. One thing that is great…

Garden Grill (Breakfast)


If you are planning a meal while visiting Disney World and looking for great character interaction this was one of our favorites on this trip. Though we are NOT breakfast eaters and generally do not enjoy breakfast foods I decided to book us a breakfast at the Garden Grill to get us up and moving…

Another Disney Trip??!!


So, I have been planning another Walt Disney World trip in secret. We wanted to surprise the kids on Christmas Day with a trip for this year. They didn’t get to go last year and we had them convinced that we were going to wait until 2018 to go again. We actually booked the trip…

Cape May Cafe – Seafood Buffet – Dinner Day 2


Plate from lower left (clockwise): red potatoes, peel-and-eat shrimp, paella, roasted root vegetables, and clams. We arrived for our reservation 15 minutes early at the Beach Club.  We sat in the lobby for only about 5 minutes before our buzzer went off and we were seated for dinner.  We had a later reservation of 8:00…

Liberty Tree Tavern


Liberty Tree Tavern is closed right now for some much-needed renovations. On our last trip my daughter and I went there for dinner. It had been at least 6-7 years since we were last at this restaurant. It is amazing how a few years and a much different perspective can make you see something in…

Teppan Edo – Japanese Habachi Grill


We have never eaten in Japan other than at the counter service restaurant, Katsura Grill, which we try to stop during every trip for a combination platter. We have made reservations in the past at Teppan Edo and ended up canceling because they never fit into our plans. I thought my children would love it…

Raglan Road – Disney Springs


We arrived two nights prior to the start of the Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2015 and wanted to spend a few days getting to different places that we might not otherwise get a chance to go to. The one place my daughter really wanted to go to was Raglan Road. She wanted to see…

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano – Disney Hollywood Studios


This was our second visit to Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano, but a first for my parents.  This restaurant is tucked behind Muppet Vision 4-D and next to the Frozen stage show so if you are not looking for it you may just walk right on by.  The waiting area inside the restaurant is tiny and…

Biergarten – A 50th Anniversary Dinner


What I love, and sometimes hate, about Walt Disney World restaurants is that no matter when you go if you have been to it before you pretty much know what you are going to get.  They may tweak dishes from time to time or slightly change the menus with the seasons but especially in the…
