Yakitori House – Epcot’s Japan

Posted on
I’m currently remodeling my kitchen (among other projects). Anyone who has ever undertaken a home improvement project knows there are good days and bad days. Today was a bad day. First, the tile man called and cancelled. He had a legitimate excuse, but I was disappointed, none the less. Since I now had the day … Continue reading "Yakitori House – Epcot’s Japan"

How the Flying Fish Cafe Got Its Name

Posted on
Recently, I wrote an article for the Allears.net newsletter about the Flying Fish Café. In it, I mentioned that I wasn’t exactly sure how the restaurant got its name. Two of my readers (Debbie and Mehran), did a much better job of research than I did and were able to find the answer. My thanks … Continue reading "How the Flying Fish Cafe Got Its Name"

Wolfgang Puck Express — Marketplace

Posted on
When Wolfgang Puck’s first opened at the Marketplace in Downtown Disney, they had no indoor seating. This simply wouldn’t do in hot, humid, and rainy Florida. Eventually, they rearranged what little indoor space they had and added a few tables. This helped, but it wasn’t the solution they needed. So a couple of months ago … Continue reading "Wolfgang Puck Express — Marketplace"

Liberty Tree Tavern Pagers

Posted on
A very old tradition has died at the Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom. In the past, when guests checked in at the podium, they were asked what state they were from. Then, when it was time to be seated, the host or hostess would call out in town-crier fashion, “Hear ye! Hear ye! … Continue reading "Liberty Tree Tavern Pagers"

Last week, I had lunch at the Yak & Yeti table-service restaurant for the second time. I’m happy to report that every thing is still top notch. The food was tasty and beautifully presented and the service was attentive and friendly. My only comment is that the prices are a little high for lunch. It’s … Continue reading "Yak & Yeti Update"

Pizzafari

Posted on
I ate at the Pizzafari restaurant in the Animal Kingdom January 10th. When I got to my table I noticed a small plastic card on the tray along with my order. The card featured Timon and Pumba with the inscription, “Do not feed the animals. Your yummies are not good for our tummies.” I thought … Continue reading "Pizzafari"

Epcot Changes

Posted on
Over the last several years, Disney has tried several concepts at Epcot to best implement baggage check as you enter the park. It appears that they have finally hit upon a design that works. Temporary stanchions have been replaced with stainless steel fences. Even the flowerbeds now have security fences running through them. This looks … Continue reading "Epcot Changes"
