Coronado Springs Resort Building Demolition Begins with Las Ventanas Lunch Review

Last week, Disney made a pretty significant announcement that construction was already underway on a new 15-story, 500+ room tower at the Coronado Springs Resort. That tower will contain some number of “regular rooms,” in addition to suites and “concierge level services.” And perhaps most interestingly, a rooftop restaurant that promises “panoramic views of popular nighttime fireworks from nearby Disney theme parks” will be added. New bridges will be constructed to better connect other guest areas with the tower and new “floating gardens” will also be added to brighten up the landscape. You can read the full announcement here in case you haven’t already read 75 different versions slightly reworded.

The construction is immediately noticeable as you approach the gate as the Cabanas building that’s being torn down is just inside the resort’s main entrance on the right.

Epcot Festival of the Arts Review

Back on November 21st, 2016, Disney announced that a new Festival would be arriving at Epcot. Running on Fridays through Mondays from January 13 – February 20, I thought the event fit Epcot’s theme perfectly and added a lot of fun and interesting things to do.

Trilo-Bites Buffalo Chicken Chips Review at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Trilo-Bites (don’t Google trilobite) is a kiosk located just past the entrance to DinoLand USA from Discovery Island sort of across from the entrance to The Boneyard. Basically, after you pass Flame Tree Barbecue, you’ll see it on the right. Or if you’re walking from DinoLand Proper, you’ll see it on the left before crossing the bridge and arriving at Flame Tree.

Trilo has served a variety of items over the years and at one point was the Park’s turkey leg outlet before moving on to some dessert-y type items.
