Epcot Tuesday – France

Tuesday’s are now Epcot Tuesday’s! This picture was taken in 2008 of the view of the France Pavilion.  As always, I’m struck by the amount of theming that the Walt Disney Imagineers incorporate to even something as simple as this picture.  What is your favorite pavilion in the World Showcase?

Disney Dining Review: Garden Grill Restaurant

When it comes to character dining at Walt Disney World, or even just dining in general, one place that should be at the top of everyone’s list in my opinion is The Garden Grill Restaurant.

Located at the Land Pavilion at Epcot’s Future World, the Garden Grill Restaurant is a great restaurant!  The restaurant itself is circular, and slowly revolves as you eat to show you all of the different “seasons” of the attraction “Living with the Land”, which is located below the restaurant.

The food at The Garden Grill Restaurant is wonderful comfort food.  There are beef, turkey, and fish dishes, and with each selection there are specific side dishes that accompany the meat.  Served family style, you can eat what you want and then get more of some of what you liked!  It is a wonderful meal, and many of the fruits and vegetables are grown below in the greenhouses that are located at the pavilion!  Here are links to the sample menus for the Garden Grill (all day) and the Kid’s menu as well!

But The Garden Grill Restaurant is not just for eating, this is a character restaurant also!  Enjoy visits with Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Chip, and Dale while you eat!  They come around to all of the tables and are available for pictures and autographs!  We have had some great pictures with them over the years!

This is one of my family’s favorite restaurants to eat at, and one that I think we will introduce our friends to when we travel to Disney World in June!  If you haven’t eaten there before, you are missing out, I highly recommend that you try it one time!  You’ll be hooked!

Animal Kingdom Monday’s — Face Painting

If you are at Animal Kingdom, and your child is interested in getting their face painted, you are in luck!  Sophie had her face painted a few years back, and my understanding is that face painting is still alive and well at Dinoland, U.S.A.  They did a great job on Sophie’s face, and the price wasn’t bad either!

The Week That Was, November 27, 2011

This is a little late today everyone, so I’m sorry for that, but welcome to another Week that Was at My Dreams of Disney!  With Thanksgiving, I’ve had some small posts, but nothing huge, so as a result, no Disney Dining Reviews (I’ll pick those back up next week), but we still got some interesting pictures posted — at least I hope you found them interesting!

  • On Animal Kingdom Monday we shared one of our pictures of the Swinging Monkeys!
  • For Epcot Tuesday we shared a picture of Sophie with her pal Donald Duck at the Mexico Pavilion!
  • Wednesday was Wordless Wednesday, and for that day, I thought it appropriate to share a picture of my sister-in-law Nancy with her Mom Sherri — with Expedition Everest in the background!
  • Thursday was Hollywood Studios Thursday, and for that day, I shared one of my shots from the Beauty and the Beast show!
  • Friday was Magic Kingdom Friday, and with it came a picture of the plane fuselage from the Jungle Cruise!  I followed that up with the information that the other side of the plane can be found on the Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios!
  • Over at Chip and Company I had a few posts to share with you:
    • Monday was my post of the Week in Review for November 21st, 2011.
    • I also wrote about what I’m thankful for.  One of the things I’m thankful for is for all of you that read on the blogs I write for.  Thank you!
    • Lastly, I shared with your our experience with touring the Disney Vacation Club.
  • Over at the Magical Blogorail, I helped out on the Teal line on Tuesday, and participated in the Disney Pet Peeves topic they had going! Do you have any pet peeves about Disney?
  • Lastly, on the 22nd I shared a post over at The Disney Moms!  This is a new site I’m writing for monthly, and for this post, I talked about Sophie’s favorite Character Dining restaurants!  If you haven’t seen the Disney Moms page yet, please go check it out — there are a ton of great writers there!

Thanks for always taking time out of your day to read our writing!

The answer is…

In today’s Magic Kingdom Friday post, I posted a couple of trivia questions to go with the picture:

Gaylin was correct in knowing that this is part of the scenery of the Jungle Cruise, but she was just a little off when I asked where the other half of this plane is.  The correct answer is that this is the back half of the Lockheed Model 12 Electra Junior found at The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the Casablanca scene.

Thanks everyone!  Next time you ride the Great Movie Ride, look for the plane!
