The Edison at Disney Springs.

Posted in DISNEY DINING, EVERYTHING DISNEY with tags , on December 2, 2018 by disneychronicles

We dropped into The Edison for lunch on our visit to Disney Springs.

9C8A14C2-9601-4769-9B68-78CBA72B0E2D

The Edison is set in an abandoned power plant and has an industrial, gothic steampunk theme.  The multilevel restaurant is big and yet still has a cozy feel, with three bars, entertainment area, and various seating configurations. The hostesses are dressed in flapper dresses and the male servers are dressed in 1920’s style attire with suspenders and bow ties.

At lunch time the vibe is mellow, providing a great family dining experience, but after 10 pm it transforms into an Adult-only venue focused on craft cocktails and Cabernet entertainment. 

The menu consists of contemporary American fare, with a selection of sandwiches, salads and entrees; plus a focus on artfully crafted cocktails.  

 

 

We chose the Edison Burger -Signature Beef Blend of Sirloin, Short Rib, and Brisket topped with Cabot Cloth Bound Cheddar, crispy Onions, Smoked Bacon, House-made Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato, and Special Sauce served with Fries. It was AWESOME!

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich-Spicy-fried Buffalo-style Chicken Breast Sandwich topped with Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, and Pickles, with French Fries. Great also but VERY spicy.

Chop Salad-Napa Cabbage, Greens, Grilled Chicken, Apple, Jicama, Pineapple, Pepper, Carrot, Spicy Cashews, and Sesame-Ginger. Good and especially enjoyed the sesame ginger.

Overall a fun restaurant with very detailed theming! 

Would love to return for a date night.

The NEW Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

Posted in DISNEY DINING, EVERYTHING DISNEY with tags , on December 15, 2015 by disneychronicles

Beginning Dec. 16, 2015, you can set off on a culinary adventure featuring “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” at the new Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom® Park at Walt Disney World® Resort.

Located steps from the legendary Jungle Cruise attraction, this new 222-seat table-service restaurant is staffed by the wisecracking crew of the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Diners are seated in one of three dining destinations inside the company’s headquarters-turned-restaurant: the mess hall; the jungle-inspired parlor once used by the company’s founder, Dr. Albert Falls and his family; or the former meeting room of the mysterious Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

The adventurous menu features bold and flavorful tastes inspired by the exotic flavors of the rivers traveled on the Jungle Cruise. You can try Trader Sam’s head-on shrimp, Dr. Falls’ signature grilled steak or the house-made arepas with slow-cooked beef, black beans, tostones and queso fresco. Little ones can enjoy items such as Junior Skip’s special mac and cheese. And for dessert, there is a Kungaloosh! – an African-inspired chocolate cake served with caramelized bananas and cashew-caramel ice cream. Refreshing non-alcoholic specialty beverages, Punch Line punch and Schweitzer Slush, will also be offered.

The Disney Dining Plan will be accepted at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen. Reservations are not currently being offered.

Ok, so I have never done this before but I have to say we had a rootin’ tootin good time!
This fun western themed dinner show is located in Fort Wilderness, so give yourself extra time to get there.

Dinner is served family style and includes a dinner salad, buckets of BBQ spare ribs and fried chicken, corn, baked beans with a finale of some amazing strawberry shortcake. This all comes out during a pretty funny musical show.
You also receive unlimited soft drinks, tea, coffee, milk, beer, wine and sangria.

The setting is in a barn and it really feels like an all you can eat down home BBQ.
I recommend it! Do it!

My Fantasyland Preview….YOU are going to LOVE it!

Posted in DISNEY ATTRACTIONS, DISNEY DINING, DISNEY'S MAGIC KINGDOM with tags , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by disneychronicles


We had a chance to preview a new section of Fantasyland!

Disney’s Enchanted Forest and …………..I LOVE it!
The official opening is scheduled for December 6th (hmmmm 2 days before my birthday, guess where I will be then?!)

The Enchanted Forest is inspired by The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

Now Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney Movie so you can imagine how excited I was to see this! And not to give too much away but my youngest son was chosen to be “beast” in the storybook adventure “Enchanted Tales with Belle” and I must add he was Fantastic!!!

Upon entering this area you will see “Enchanted Tales with Belle” to your left. The theming as always is magnificent very much like the movie.  You began by walking into Maurice’s workshop. I don’t want to give it all away here but you are transported to Beast’s library. 🙂
In my opinion this is good for girls and boys. It is a good storyline that includes parts for both.

The video only shows a small part it is a very audience participation oriented attraction so for obvious reasons I only posted the beginning….

Directly below beasts castle is the “Be Our Guest” restaurant.  Dinner here is a traditional table service inspired by French cuisine. The ballroom (once again just like the movie) is beautifully decorated, it features a domed ceiling, twinkling chandeliers and views of falling snow! (Need a cool off from the hot Florida sun? This is the place to be!)
Book reservations EARLY!

Also stop in at Gaston’s Tavern for snacks and the signature drink LeFou’s Brew which I was not able to try.

I did stop in at Bonjour! Village Gifts which has themed souvenirs mainly focusing on Beauty and the Beast.

Under the Sea was our next stop. I do wish that I was there during the daytime but it did look great even at night! You will enter Prince Eric’s castle. Walking through the queue there are many interactive spots to keep you occupied! You will then board a clamshell to start your journey. This is a great ride very musical and the effects are fabulous!

This video shows the entire ride so skip it if you would rather experience it on your own!

From what I saw I was not disappointed! This will be a great addition to the Magic Kingdom!

Check out all my photos!

A Hidden Gem at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Posted in DISNEY DINING, DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS with tags , on August 5, 2012 by disneychronicles

ok, I’ll tell you about it only if you can keep a secret….

It is located right next door to the Sci Fi Dine In.  It is actually pretty unobtrusive, which is part of the charm…and it’s pretty easy to walk right on by and not realize what’s inside.

If you MUST have a coffee (like I usually do!) or you just need some time away from the crowds and hustle! this is the place to go!

What is it? you ask….

Stop into Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Writer’s Stop.  It is a hidden gem that is rarely crowded. Enjoy a good cup of coffee and a snack from the variety of bakery items available there.

It’s by no means a place to have a meal. If you need an afternoon pick-me-up or a morning wake-me-up, then its perfect! The Writer’s Stop offers both hot and cold beverages such as a variety of coffees, teas and soft drinks.

So take a stroll around, there’s plenty to look at or just pull up a chair and relax!   ENJOY!

…..but shhhhhhh don’t tell anyone about it! 😀

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Posted in DISNEY DINING with tags , on May 28, 2012 by disneychronicles

In this rowdy, family-style restaurant right out of the Old West, start your morning with a bang-up breakfast of favorites such as buttermilk pancakes, omelets or an all-you-care-to-enjoy Canyon Skillet.

Had breakfast here and as always it was loads of laughs! and we really enjoyed it! Now I am pretty easy when it comes to breakfast so I had the oatmeal fruit & nutella bagel plate! Pretty basic but it was DELISH! We all agreed that the food was better than the usually Disney breakfasts. (well at least the buffets for sure)

the kids had scrambled eggs, biscuit and potatoes…

the hubby had the raisin french toast….

 

The atmosphere is relaxed, laid-back with a dash of silly! (I don’t want to give away any of the fun stuff) so for that you will just have to go!

It is also accessible by boat if you’re at the Magic Kingdom and want to sneak away for a meal. Breakfast hours are 7:30 am to 11:30 am.  Lunch is served from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm…and dinner is from 5 to 10 pm daily.

Go ahead!  It is LOUD!! and loads of FUN! Don’t miss it!
