Jungle Skipper Canteen

Review | Jungle Skipper Canteen Restaurant

The Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen is a table service restaurant located in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. The restaurant is themed after the popular and classic Disney attraction, The Jungle Cruise. Located in Adventureland it’s one of Disney World newest restaurants, but is it any good?

Photo Pass

Review | Memory Maker & PhotoPass

Walt Disney World is a place where lifetime memories can be made. Disney’s Memory Maker & PhotoPass can help get everyone in photos so you don’t have to rely upon selfies or one family member being absent from every photo. Memory Maker is a $150 add on (or $170 if purchased while you’re at Disney World) that give you unlimited photos in the park, attraction photos, character dining and of course downloads of these photos. Is that steep price worth it? I purchased Memory Maker to test out the service and see if it’s something that you should get for your next Walt Disney World Trip.

Caribbean Beach Resort

Review | Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is the oldest moderate resort at Walt Disney World in Florida. It’s also the largest resort on property at over two hundred acres and 2109 rooms. I stayed here for the first time during October of 2016. The resort has just undergone a major renovation and every room is newly remodeled so I wasn’t worried that it was the oldest moderate. What is it like to stay at the largest Walt Disney World resort hit the jump for my review of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

Review | Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort

After reviewing Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (which is a deluxe villa resort) & thought it’d be good to do a review of a resort on the other end of the spectrum. I’d say that this review will apply to far more people than the Bay Lake review. Disney’s All-Star Movies is a value level resort in the Animal Kingdom resort area in Walt Disney World. The value resorts are perfect for those with large groups or those who want to maximize their time in the parks and use the hotel only for sleeping and showering. What did I think of the All-Star Movies? Hit the jump for details on the resort and my thoughts about whether you should stay there as well.

Review | Tony’s Town Square Restaurant

Tony’s Town Square Restaurant should seem familiar to fans of Lady & The Tramp. It’s where the duo had their iconic spaghetti kiss! The real restaurant is located in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. It’s in Town Square which is the first part of the park you enter. Even though it’s a big restaurant it can be somewhat hidden. I didn’t even know where it was until I had booked the reservation! I guess that’s the beauty of the theming at Disney World. My full review of Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is after the jump.

Bay Lake Tower

Review | Bay Lake Tower At Disney’s Contemporary Resort

When it comes to guests resort preferences at Disney World there are really only two types of people. There are those who’s main goal is to spend as much time in the parks as possible. This leaves them free to book the cheapest hotel possible since it’ll be used as a “crash pad” just for sleeping and showering. Then, there are those who plan to spend time at the resort and use the available amenities. I seem to drift in and out of those two categories depending on the trip. During my Fall 2015 trip I had the privilege of taking my three younger siblings to Disney World for their first time and I wanted the trip to be memorable. What better way to help add to the memories than stay at a Deluxe Villa resort for their first trip! So I booked a lake view studio at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (that full name really is a mouthful!). Hit the jump for details on the resort, it’s amenities and our time spent enjoying the resort.

Review: Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Coronado Springs is a great resort which felt like home in many ways. Coronado Springs is located in the “Animal Kingdom Resort Area”, however I think it’s closer to Hollywood Studios. It is a moderate level resort with a Latin and Mexican theme. The Three Caballeros above sums up the theming perfectly There are plenty of amenities for guests of all ages and the rooms are surprisingly large and comfortable. There are multiple pools around the property, with some being much better than others. Check out the full review of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort after the jump.
