Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Red. Enjoy the ride as we share with you our favorite Disney dining experiences!
In today’s loop, we are going to share with you our favorite Disney dining experiences! This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart (or stomach, as the case may be), so hop aboard and enjoy the ride!
For me, there isn’t any one experience that I can claim is my beat-all, end-all experience. We have had so many awesome dining experiences at Walt Disney World that I think it is nearly impossible to come up with just one experience to talk about. As a result, I’m going to go off track just a little to talk about some of the memorable experiences we have had that make Disney truly a memorable place to eat at.
One of my really nice memories was at the Main Street Bakery. We stopped in there one morning to get some breakfast, and one of the Cast Members stopped by our table. She started up a conversation with Sophie, and asked her who her favorite Princess was. Of course, Sophie said “Cinderella!” At that point, the Cast Member presented to Sophie a huge chocolate chip cookie, which she explained had been sent to Sophie from Cinderella, who knew that Sophie was at the Main Street Bakery at that very moment. It was so cool! This was during the Year of a Million Dreams.
Another great dining memory that I have was when we had breakfast at ‘Ohana. There we were, enjoying our wonderful breakfast, when all of a sudden Stitch appeared over Sophie! The food at ‘Ohana is awesome, the service was killer, the character interactions are incredible, and the look on Sophie’s face — well, that was priceless! Sophie loved seeing Lilo and Stitch at ‘Ohana, it was the first time we had ever seen them in the parks!
Another incredible dining experience happens every time we eat at The Crystal Palace. Sophie loves interacting with Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore, and she really loves taking part in the parade around the restaurant! I love how Tigger is always taking advantage of a photo taking session to stick his snout as far into the picture as he can!
Still other favorite Dining locations where we have had great experiences include Askerhus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway, the Garden Grill Restaurant over at the Land (both places in Epcot), and the fun getaway over at the Cape May Cafe over at the Beach Club resort! I guess what I am trying to say is this: When it comes to memorable Dining experiences, we have really enjoyed all of them, and look forward to some more memorable experiences in the days ahead!
Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is A World View.
Welcome to those of you joining me from Makin’ Memories. I am the 5th stop on our Magical Blogorail!
This past June, my wife Cindy, my daughter Sophie, and I took a trip to Port Orleans French Quarter for our annual trip to Disney World. This time, though, we were able to bring my niece Stephanie with us. Sophie knew we were going to Disney, but she had no idea that her cousin was coming with her, and when Steph showed up on our doorstep, Sophie was floored!
Our trip was one that we had been hoping to have for a long time. Sophie and Stephanie were inseparable, it was like Sophie had a big sister for the week we were there. Some incredible memories were made, and while I took a lot of pictures (712 to be exact), I felt like the memories would fade over time, despite the pictures.
The more I thought about it, the more I decided that it was time to take my passion for Walt Disney World, combine it with my love for writing and technology, and start a blog. After I had decided on that, the next question became, what should I call it? After a little bit of thought, and a few other names, I decided on My Dreams of Disney.
Since I have been to Disney quite a few times over the years, the first project I decided to tackle was to pull up the memories of the previous trips to Disney I had made throughout the years. The progression of the blog was such that it became my online repository of memories; in writing each post I was taken back to the sites, smells, and emotions of each of the trips we have made to Disney.
As I have finished all of the early memories I have of Disney World, I have expanded the blog to include my reviews of each of the lands of the Magic Kingdom, each of the countries of the World Showcase, and different thoughts and ideas that we have talked about at home. For a lot of people, writing is a job, something they do because they have to; for me, and I expect, for all of us on the Magical Blogorail, writing about Disney is something we do because we all have a love and appreciation for the things that Disney has done to enhance our lives.
Now that I feel comfortable writing my blog, I have been blessed to be included in some really great Disney sites. I was added to the writers listing for Chip & Company right around Thanksgiving, and let me tell you, the other writers for Chip & Company are really nice and readily available for advise or suggestions. Couple that with this new challenge of writing for the Magical Blogorail Red, and I have been blessed, indeed.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading about why I started my blog. If you have enjoyed it, and want to see more, I invite you to take a look at my Facebook fan page! If you “Like” my page by February 20th, you will be entered into a contest to win a Disney Tote Bag! Thanks for reading!
Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Magical Days with the Mouse.
Mickey is a Disney fan, and loves taking his family to Disney! When he isn’t writing on his own blog, you can also read his exploits over at Chip & Company, and now on the Magical Blogorail Red loop! In addition to the Red loop, there is also the Blue loop, the Green loop, and soon the Yellow loop!
