Be Our Guest

Put our service to the test. Tie your napkin around your neck and we provide the rest.

Be Our Guest 

On Monday, I got to experience the most magical night of my Disney career to date. That was the night I had a chance to experience the power of fairytales as I dined with the Beast in Be Our Guest. This restaurant is a magical story come to life. I think I may have broken a Disney history record by making it to Be Our Guest twice in 48 hours, once for dessert during lunch hours and once for dinner. After doing it both ways, quick service lunch and full service dinner, I can recommend that you go for your first time at dinner. The magic is more real, you can almost feel hear Lumiere and Cogsworth dancing in the background, and the Beast actually wanders the room.

The Grand Floridian Cafe

I am seriously behind on my dining reviews. We have been to so many amazing restaurants lately, its about time I get updating! :) This review is for a lovely little spot called the Grand Floridian Cafe. One of the best things about living at Disney is the wonderful food options. After church last week, we needed somewhere to go for lunch, so I suggested the Grand Floridian cafe. It was wonderful!

Tuesday's Tips: Club Cool

The days are longer, the pavement is beginning to simmer, the crowds expand, and heat bares down. Welcome to summer days at Walt Disney World. The summer sun beats down on tired families, wandering aimlessly through the streets of Disney. Don't let this be you this summer! Look for ingenious ways to cool down, enjoy the long summer days, the hours of entertainment, and the joy that a summer at Disney brings. One of the ways to do this is Club Cool!

Magical Mondays: Undercover Mickey Mouse

Sometimes, I don't feel like I am making any difference in my job. I get parents who are tired with screaming children trying to buy useless things. I just don't see how I am helping make anyone's vacation better or more magical. And then I have moments like these next three that make my job more worth it, and reminds me that every Cast Member has the opportunity to create magic for every person they encounter. And what better job could exist!

Cinderella's Carousal 

Sunday, June 16, 2013


Welcome home! That is the greeting you will receive the moment you step into the warm, rich lobby of the Animal Kingdom Lodge's Sanaa restaurant. This beautifully themed restaurant has incredible food, wonderful service, and giraffes walking outside the window. What could be better?

Tuesday's Tips: WDW Transportation

I am so sorry it has taken me forever to update with another Tuesday's Tips. I have been so busy with work I haven't even had a chance to work on these posts. Tuesdays are usually my busiest days, and I do have to leave for work soon. But I will get this done first! I have two tips for you today: transportation and Wi Fi.
These tips will help your vacation go smoother and make this a little more magical.  :) 

Magical Monday's: Princesses and Pin-Trading

There are so many things that make my job different from any other job in the world. No, it isn't that I can turn my costume in every day and have someone wash, dry, and iron it ;) Although that is pretty awesome. It isn't that I get to wear super bright colors, dance to Disney music, wear Mickey gloves and high-four space rangers. It isn't that I work for Scrooge McDuck in his factory, take the orders from his office and deliver the products to our guests. All these things are really awesome, but the best part is that I get to create magic. Yes, as I learned in my training on Saturday, making magic is a part of my job description. And there are so many magic moments this week that I want to share with you. This post is all about the little princesses that entered my life this week. I love the little space rangers and pirates, don't get me wrong, but it is the princesses that make the magic for me.

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Warning: this post will make you run to your freezer for the nearest gallon of ice cream. You have been warned. Proceed at your own risk. 

Wednesdays are my days off now, which means lunch! Yesterday, our restaurant of choice was Whispering Canyon Cafe. This delightful restaurant is located in the Wilderness Lodge. While the decor was fun and the service wonderful, the thing that really drew me here was the bottomless milkshakes. Yes. Bottomless milkshakes. My world was changed in that moment. They were amazing! More on that in a bit.
The entrance. Look at the Indian headdresses gracing the stairs.

Magical Mondays: Magical Moments

There are so many magical things to talk about today, and its not because I am sitting at the Pop Century resort eating tie dye cheesecake, although that might have something to do with it. :) let me tell you, that cheesecake is magical, but it deserves a post all to itself. No, today I want to talk about the magical moments I had a chance to be a part of.

L'Artisan Des Glaces

Why are so many things better when they are French? ;) Like castles, cities(Paris!) and boys, things are just better when they are French, and ice cream is no exception. In Epcot, the normal American can now experience the deliciousness of French Ice Cream at the brand new L'Artisan Des Glaces.


Pizza is always an adventure. That gooey cheese atop light brown crust with toppings that set your mouth to party. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, pizza literally is an adventure at Pizzafari!
