Disney World Travel Updates & Our Universal Orlando Resort trip.

Disney Grand Floridian DVC Resort

Walt Disney World Updates for April

We have put together the latest Disney World news to help you with your up-coming trip.

 

We start with the new Walt Disney World security check points so you can quickly get into the Magic Kingdom.  If you are staying at a Disney World monirail resort the security check point for you is at your resort so you can quickly get into the Magic Kingdom.

Chris stayed at Disney’s Grand Floridian Villas in a one bedroom villa.  These rooms are the most luxurious rooms on Disney World property.  For the full Grand Floridian Villa Resort review please listen to our Mouse Chat Disney podcast here or on iTunes.

There is a character breakfast at the Disney Boardwalk – Trattoria al Forno.  The characters from the Little Mermaid and Tangled are there and the interaction was fantastic.  The food at Trattoria al Forno was very good.  This is not a traditional American breakfast, except for the pancakes.  The food is amazing and we give it two thumbs up.  We are excited to see the more adventurous dining at Walt Disney World and this character breakfast is one of our Disney hidden gems.

The Polite Pig is open at Disney Springs.  It’s a modern BBQ style restraunt that is really reasonably priced for a tourist location.  I love BBQ and would love to give the Polite Pig a try for lunch at Disney Springs.  It is very nice to see new restaurant opening up at Disney Springs that allow you to order at the register and sit and relax without having to do a full sit down dining experience.  I like to shop and explore Disney Springs and a full service dining experience is great for dinner but sometimes I want something a little quicker for lunch.  The Polite Pig looks like a great option.  Hopefully we will try this and do a review on one of our next trips to Walt Disney World.

Disneyland Paris turns 25 this year and we cover what’s new for the anniversary.  Please listen to Mouse Chat for the list of 25th anniversary events.

We are back from Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.  We stayed at Loews Portofino Bay Resort and it was a perfect resort for a boat ride or tropical walk to Universal Studios.  We got a call from The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and they asked to use our Wagon Queen Family Truckster to open The Tonight Show and their ride at Universal Studios Orlando.  You can see the Cold Open from The Tonight Show here with our car.   We also got to attend The Tonight Show one night in Orlando at Universal.
