Incredible Themed Rooms Coming to the Contemporary Resort!

It’s called the “Contemporary” but in many ways, it still looks more like what the style was back in the early 1970s when it was built.  To tweak this retro look a bit, Walt Disney Imagineering is reimagining the Contemporary Resort to include theming from The Incredibles! Currently, the guest rooms on all nine floors in the tower are being completely refurbished in preparation for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary this October. New custom artwork in guest rooms and along corridors will complement the resort’s architecture while putting the Supers’ powers of The Incredibles on display! Also, the lobby will … Continue reading Incredible Themed Rooms Coming to the Contemporary Resort!

Regal Eagle Smokehouse – “Life Changing” Food? . . . at least the burgers were

The American Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase has a counter service restaurant that serves up some incredible BBQ! 😋 The Regal Eagle Smokehouse opened in early 2020 (before the pandemic) and is located to the left of the American Adventure building. We visited it around lunchtime last week and wanted to give you our thoughts on this “quick-service” restaurant. First of all, when you get anywhere close to the American Pavilion, you can smell the custom smoker doing its thing out in front of the restaurant (a very smart ploy to get people to drop money on food) . . … Continue reading Regal Eagle Smokehouse – “Life Changing” Food? . . . at least the burgers were

Jungle Cruise Refurbishment Coming Soon

Disneyland & Walt Disney World will be changing the Jungle Cruise.  Floating around through the jungle and listening to your skipper crack jokes has always been fun, but many feel that something new is much needed for this opening day attraction. Disney Parks Blog says that they want this attraction to be able to “better reflect the value and diversity of the world around us.”  (Basically meaning that they want to change any of the negative depictions of native people). Besides getting rid of the negative aspects of the ride, Disney will be incorporating a whole new storyline that ties the … Continue reading Jungle Cruise Refurbishment Coming Soon

What Makes the Gran Fiesta Tour Special? (when it’s not so special)

When our family’s at Epcot, we probably ride the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros at least twice during every vacation.  While this classic World Showcase boat ride in the Mexican Pavillian could be considered “lame” by many people, there is just something about this ride experience that makes it very special.   Maybe it’s the pyramid-shaped Mexico Pavilion building.  Maybe it’s the feeling of walking into a nighttime scene in an old Mexican village (the fountain, the shops, or the cast members).  Maybe it’s the smell of the food from the San Angel Inn Restaurante.  Maybe it’s the archway … Continue reading What Makes the Gran Fiesta Tour Special?
