Wilderness Explorers

By: April Sanders May 24, 2018 You know what I love about Disney World? There are always free things to do! One of my favorites, is at Animal Kingdom, called the “Wilderness Explorers”.

Once you enter Animal Kingdom and cross the bridge, look to your right and you’ll catch the first station where...

Let Mama (Melrose’s) Feed You Right!

By: Rebecca Jones May 22, 2018 When you are looking for casual Italian fare, look no further than Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

Rose and Crown: An Epcot Gem

Rose and Crown: An Epcot Gem

By: Audrey Willis May 8, 2018 The restaurants in World Showcase are one reason I enjoy Epcot.

One of my family’s favorite places is Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom pavilion. So of course we headed there first for lunch on our last visit. Rose and Crown is one of two restaurants overlooking the water in World Showcase. If...
