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.

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┬ástay 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.

Soarin’ To Be Closed For Six Months For Refurbishment

Disney has finally announced when Soarin’ will be closed for refurbishment and conversion to the newly announced Soarin’ Around The World. Soarin’ Will be down from January 4th through sometime in the summer of 2016. During this time the third theater will be finished and the projection and audio system is expected to be updated to fit with the new experience Disney wishes to bring with the “new” ride. Disney fans have complained that the attraction doesn’t live up to the audio & video standards of today and that those issues take away from the immersive experience that Disney is trying to produce. Hopefully this long refurb will help make the attraction great again. I rode Soarin’ last month and did notice that the projection system could use an upgrade but I still loved the experience as much as the first time I rode Soarin’ Over California at DCA.
