It’s no secret that Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are two of my very favorite places to vacation to. I was over the moon excited to have a Food Blogger #DeliciousDisney adventure at the Walt Disney World Resort this month. Disney is just one of those magical places, no matter how old you are, you can have the time of your life. I felt so fortunate to spend the weekend with 7 of my food blogging sisters. We stayed at the lovely Boardwalk Inn, just walking distance away from Epcot. We had a whirlwind of a weekend that I can’t wait to share with you. Huge thanks to American Tourister for our new luggage. Love my Tangerine iLite Max!
Most of us flew in a day early for our event, so that first thing Thursday morning we could spend the day at Magic Kingdom. Is there anywhere else more magical? Love it here so much.
Walt Disney World Trip With Friends
Dying over this one. Hey Tinkerbell!
Fall/Halloween Time at Magic Kingdom is absolutely beautiful. The decorations are warm and the sweet little pumpkin Mickey wreaths are the cutest.
Every angle of the Cinderella Castle is just perfect. Love strolling by and of course snapping pictures 🙂
Amazing Food at Magic Kingdom
As food bloggers do, it was off to find some of our favorite Disney food!! First up was the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread from Sleepy Hollow. Yah, it was amazing.
After we rode Pirates of the Caribbean we made our way to the Dole Whips! The Dole Whip Float is my absolute favorite. When it’s hot at the parks, there’s nothing better.
A few more rides like Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan’s Flight and “it’s a small world” then it was time for some treats at Gaston’s Tavern. Giant cinnamon rolls, chocolate croissants and Gaston’s Brew were some of the things we shared. All fantastic 🙂 Right around lunchtime we made our way to Epcot!
Walt Disney World’s Epcot
Half of us were headed to Mission Space and half on our way to Italy!
We grabbed a reservation at Via Napoli for lunch. Their pizza is some of my favorite pizza ever. This Classic Margherita is AMAZING.
We shared this gorgeous White Pizza too.

After we explored Epcot for a few hours, we made our way back to our rooms at the Boardwalk Inn and got ready for one of the most beautiful dinner experiences. We enjoyed the newly renovated Flying Fish located on Disney’s Boardwalk. Every single dish that was brought out, was so carefully prepared and unmistakably delicious. I ordered the Wagyu Filet Mignon and let me tell you, it was one of the best I’ve had. The appetizers blew me away as well. Don’t miss the Blue Crab Bisque , Yellowfin Tuna, Wild Gulf Shrimp and Kurobuta Pork Belly. Be sure to get your reservations when visiting the parks. Flying Fish is a must.
Be Our Guest Restaurant, Magic Kingdom
Friday morning, we had the pleasure of having breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant located in Magic Kingdom. I had lunch reservations a couple years ago (this photo from last trip) and was so excited to enjoy breakfast in this magical Beauty and The Beast themed restaurant. You really feel like you are walking into Beast’s enchanted castle. The detail is simply a must-see. Breakfast and lunch are served quick service style and dinner is an unforgettable sit down style.
As you walk in, you are greeted by friendly Cast Members who guide you in the right direction. Beast’s Castle details are so GRAND and remarkably stunning. Take a good look around during your visit.
For breakfast and lunch you walk up to a computer like touch screen and select your meal choices. You go find your own table and your server magically finds you!
There are three different dining rooms to choose from. Each absolutely beautiful. I really love The Castle Gallery, with Belle and Beast dancing in the center of the room with the most beautiful art work on the walls to enjoy. Each room has a different theme such as Beast’s West Wing, which is a dark dining room with dramatic ripped curtains and be sure to watch the painting on the wall and the rose. The Grand Ballroom has dramatic high, domed ceiling, chandeliers and beautiful murals on the ceiling.
I ordered the Croque Madame and a Croissant Donut on the side…no calories at Disney right? Ha! We also shared pastries and of course the Master’s Cupcake with the ever so delicious “Grey Stuff” topping. What a breakfast! It really was all amazing.
Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train
Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train is a favorite. Love this!
Later in the afternoon we made our way to Hollywood Studios. We went straight to Hollywood’s Tower of Terror. Complete terror, but I love it!
More fun treats! This is the Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie from Beverly Sunset that knocked my socks off. That cream cheese filling, so good.
This chocolate filled Butterfinger Cupcake from Starring Rolls Cafe was my favorite. Talk about a treat!
How adorable are all of our cupcakes?! Hollywood Studios has some fun treats.
Dinner at Tiffins, Animal Kingdom
It was off to dinner at Animal Kingdom’s newest restaurant called Tiffins. This experience blew me away! We started with drinks and gorgeous appetizers at The Nomad Lounge.
One of my favorite stories from Tiffins are the little tags that hang from the ceiling at the bar. Travelers get to write stories about their favorite travel stories and hang them for all to read.
There are three beautiful dining rooms to enjoy with so many beautiful things to look at on the walls.
This dining room has the most beautifully detailed tiki’s in the center of the room.
Ordered a lovely curry soup to start, the halibut for dinner and gorgeous dessert. The entire experience was so memorable. I look forward to taking my family in the future.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
After dinner, we went over Magic Kingdom for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This is a special event during Halloween Time that requires a separate ticket. What a night. Having only done Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland, this was such a memorable night taking in all of the excitement. So many things to do and see. The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular Show was too fun!
Loved Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade. This was truly a magical night!
During Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you can find special Halloween Time treats only available during the party. Of course we hunted down about every one. Great night!
Trattoria al Forno
The next morning it was off to breakfast at Trattoria al Forno located on Disney’s Boardwalk. I ordered the Pouched Eggs which is served over top soft polenta and topped with a red sauce. This might be one of my favorite breakfast dishes to date. We shared quite a few dishes and I’m telling you everything was beautiful and delicious. Yes, we had to try the French fries at breakfast, lol! They were so crunchy yet tender, I’m still dreaming about them. Loved this dining experience.
Ample Hills Creamery, Disney’s Boardwalk
While at Disney, you get matching shirts with your friends right? Ha! Couldn’t resist getting a group shot of our cute matching Mickey Mouse tees.
Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival
With very full bellies, we made our way to Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival.
We were invited into the media area where the chef’s were preparing different dishes representing different countries. Everything was gorgeous and from the bites I sampled, absolutely delicious. You could really spend a whole day at Epcot sampling your way through each country. Share with a friend for sure. Lots of great food to try! The festival runs from September 14-November 14th 2016. What a great time to visit the parks. For a full list of menu items from each Marketplace click HERE.
Chef Morimoto, talked to us in the Media room. He even sang a little song. My husband and I watched Iron Chef faithfully for years. Too fun, seeing him in person.
Dinner at Morimoto Asia
Our last dinner together was spent at Disney Springs, Morimoto Asia. Can you even believe Chef Morimoto was hanging out at his restaurant?! He came over for a picture with us. We were dying, ha! He really is the sweetest. The giant appetizer tower, sushi rolls, the ramen and our gorgeous private dining room made for an unforgettable evening. This is a really gorgeous restaurant to visit. Loved our last dinner together.
Breakfast at Cape May Cafe
On our last morning, we walked over to Disney’s Beach Club Resort for breakfast. We were treated to Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe. What a fun Character breakfast! We got pictures with each Disney Character dressed in the cutest beach wear. They were dancing and having a great time with the guests. Would absolutely take my family back here!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
After breakfast, we checked out of our rooms, got our luggage squared away and made our way to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This park is so gorgeous with it’s lush green trees all around the walkways. I really love it here.
As you walk through Animal Kingdom’s entrance and head towards Kilimanjaro Safari, you’ll see this very grand Tree of Life in the center of the park. It really is a sight to see. The details on the trunk are spectacular.
Mickey Pretzel, one last Dole Whip, a ride on Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safari, then it was on our way back home! This was a weekend I will never forget. So many adventures with the best of memories. Nothing like a Disney vacation, can’t wait to plan my next visit! Be sure to follow our adventure on Instagram under #DeliciousDisney.

Sharing my latest trip, Walt Disney World With Girlfriends!
It’s no secret that EVERYTHING Disney is my absolute favorite. Generally, I’m at Disneyland Resort on a regular basis, so getting to spend time at Walt Disney World with my girlfriends was the ultimate treat. Disney hosted our group to a week of pure magic. Amazing food, sneak peeks into what’s coming for the Holidays and fun times exploring the Parks.
We enjoyed our stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. This was on my bucket list so I was over the moon excited!
