Review: Las Posadas Mexico Kitchen at Epcot Festival of the Holidays 2017

Las Posadas, which is a reference to the Inn in the story of the birth of Jesus, is the first Festival of the Holidays Kitchen on the walk into Mexico. It takes up residency in the usual spot before arriving at the pyramid on the lagoon side.

The menu features three food items that are similar to what we’ve seen in the past, though each is a new take. Three margaritas accompany along with the beer with coffee liqueur floater.

Review: Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Narcoossee’s is the Grand Floridian Resort’s standalone, waterfront signature restaurant that “serves a spectacular, innovative selection of fresh seafood from both local waters and around the globe.” At least according to Narcoossee’s.

Like you, probably, it’s not a restaurant that I typically consider when I’m making dinner plans somewhere around the resort. I’ve always thought the food and drinks at Citricos tasted better and offered more innovative flavors.

And I’m not typically a fan of marrying sky-high prices with an overtly casual, easy-breezy restaurant atmosphere.

Review: Atrium Club Level at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

We’ll take a moment to visit the Atrium Club Level Lounge on the 12th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Our last Club Level stay was in July at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, which I review here. Next month, Erin and I are off to the Polynesian to give that a go.

Club Level at the Contemporary has one striking benefit that isn’t shared with any of the other Deluxe Resorts.

The view.

Review: Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

We return to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground to check out Mickey’s Backyard BBQ. I recently reviewed Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue in this post. I also have a look inside a refurbished Cabin here and a recent review of Trail’s End brunch, along with a look around the Settlement, here.

Unlike most offerings, Mickey’s Backyard Barbecue is not offered every night. You can pull up seasonal availability, along with Disney’s official word, here.

Magic Kingdom Morning Touring After Early Morning Magic

We pick things up on the morning of October 31st at 9:45am after enjoying the breakfast buffet that accompanies the Early Morning Magic event. I review that experience in-depth here. While the Park has officially been open for just 45 minutes, I’ve already ridden Seven Dwarfs Mine Train six times along with The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh twice and one run through Peter Pan’s Flight.

In addition to nonexistent waits during Early Morning Magic itself, the event puts you in excellent position to stay ahead of the crowds. I’ve already been through three of the highest priority attractions in the entire Park and can now visit other priorities like Space Mountain before others are done with their first ride through the Mine.
