Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Photo Blog

August 13, 2009

I was very fortunate to visit Disney World this year during Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival.  I think Disney World does a phenomenal job with landscaping all the time, but for this Festival, they really outdid themselves.  Here are some of my favorite photos from my trip:

Horseback Riding at Disney World

August 10, 2009

What ride at Disney World isn’t in one of the theme parks, doesn’t involve animatronics or rollercoasters, technology, complex engineering, piped-in music or air conditioning, is about as low-tech as you can possibly get, and is one of the oldest forms of transportation known to humankind that doesn’t involve water or flight?  If you can’t […]

Restaurant Review: Disney’s Liberty Tree Tavern

August 3, 2009

You know how sometimes, you just get a craving for a good burger and nothing else will satisfy?  That happened to me at Disney World in May.  I was there for a week, and I had amazing, tastebud-tantalizing, flavor-explosion meals every day, but by the end of the week, I craved nothing more than I […]

Restaurant Review: Disney’s Tangierine Cafe

July 31, 2009

I’ve always loved the Morocco pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.  It is easily (for me) the most attractive and photogenic “country” in Epcot. The exotic architecture is stunning, the courtyard fountains lovely, and no matter how long I spend poking around the alleyways and nooks and crannies, I always find the most amazing attention to […]

Restaurant Review: Planet Hollywood Downtown Disney

July 28, 2009

There is a Planet Hollywood restaurant in many major cities around the world, so naturally, there has to be one in Orlando, and that one is located in Downtown Disney.  Since the first time I ate at a Planet Hollywood (I believe I had a burger), this restaurant has not been high on my list […]

Restaurant Review: Wolfgang Puck Cafe Downtown Disney

July 22, 2009

Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World boasts a number of terrific dining choices, including some rather well-known names like Planet Hollywood, House of Blues, and Wolfgang Puck.  This, rather than the shopping available here, makes Downtown Disney a destination for me on every trip to the World.  I have eaten at Wolfgang Puck Cafe (located […]

Restaurant Review: The Hollywood Brown Derby

July 18, 2009

The Hollywood Brown Derby, located in the Hollywood Studios park at Walt Disney World, is one of Disney’s signature restaurants.  It is a replica of the real Hollywood’s legendary Brown Derby restaurant, where celebrities would “see and be seen”.  I imagine the dress code at the original was quite strict and it probably attracted a […]
