Sci-Fi New Menu Review, Pixar LIVE with FastPass+, Disney Movie Magic Show Tips – 6/2/17

No thanks.

As mentioned in the last general Hollywood Studios update, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant saw some recent menu changes, so I thought it would be prudent to stop in and give a couple new items a try.

Animal Kingdom Pandora Rope Drop Touring Strategy Round Two – 6/11/17

After what was a poor outing during our last Animal Kingdom rope drop (with Part Two here), we return with a vengeance. Because, after all, there’s nothing that we can’t achieve together, so long as we have 15 MagicBands to split between the two of us. Here at 6:35am, bag check hasn’t even begun. It’s too early for them. It’s too early for me.

No rest for the weary, overworked theme park blogger – ten minutes later I was on my way.

Rainforest Cafe Lunch Review at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Non-Pandora Happenings

Trivia at Martha’s Vineyard at Disney’s Beach Club

As we were leaving The Market at Ale & Compass over at the Yacht Club, Corless and I happened upon Trivia Night at the Beach Club. It started last month and is currently scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights at 5pm for an indeterminate amount of time.

From my review back in April, you might remember that Martha’s Vineyard is un-ironically one of my favorite lounges on property with what is one of Disney’s best draft beer programs, in addition to a surprisingly diverse food menu. Service has always been friendly and efficient, though you’ll likely need to visit the bar itself to order food and drink.

Review: The Market at Ale & Compass at Disney’s Yacht Club

If you were to ask me, “Josh, what does the Crescent Lake area need more than anything?” “Sandwiches” would probably not be near the top of my list. Yet here we are.

The Market is located just off of the lobby on the opposite side of Captain’s Grille, Crew’s Cup, and Yachtsman Steakhouse.
