Finding Future World – An Introduction

As a child, I had the benefit of growing up near Walt Disney World. Cinderella’s Castle and Spaceship Earth became common sights as I was lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of being a seasonal passholder. The bright colors and catchy songs of Fantasyland amazed my young self and then, in later years, I became fascinated by the world brought to life by EPCOT Center’s Future World.

Finding Future World

By the time I had reached high school, I had fallen out of the Disney bubble. I stopped connecting with the material like I had before. It wasn’t cool to be super into the cartoons and songs associated with the Disney brand and I admit to falling into that misguided thinking. Once an adult, I stopped caring about “cool” but it didn’t become financially reasonable to return to the place I had so enjoyed as a kid.

Yak & Yeti – Disney Dining Review

Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom spans the most acres of any Disney park in the world. Despite this, it contains very few table service dining options. Recently, I visited one of these limited restaurants. Just past the Tree of Life and under the shadow of Expedition Everest is the two story Yak & Yeti restaurant where I discovered one of the most diverse menus on property.

Yak & Yeti Lunch Review

With rain pouring down on Animal Kingdom, I pushed in to the tight lobby of the Yak & Yeti. The little room was packed with people trying to avoid the downpour, preventing me from getting much of a first impression and even nearly missing our table call amongst all the noise. Once inside, I was treated to the eclectic theming of the restaurant.

Like so much of Animal Kingdom, you feel transported across the world as you dine at Yak & Yeti. The variety of knick knacks displayed throughout the restaurant mixed with the splashes of clashing colors take you south of the replicated mountain into an Indian residence. If it weren’t for the loyalty program advertisement on the table, you could feel entirely swept away in the theming.

Be Our Guest – Disney Dining (Almost) Review

Amongst all of the dining options available inside Walt Disney World’s four parks, one of the most coveted reservations is dinner at Be Our Guest. While some exceptional planners try to jump on the 180 day window as soon as it opens, they can still find themselves missing out. But if you’re flexible and willing to wait until the last minute, you can scoop up some cancellations within a day or two of your dining plans. That is how we ended up sitting in the Beast’s ballroom for the restaurant’s only table service meal.

Dinner at Be Our Guest

As you walk through Fantasyland, you’ll begin to see Beast’s castle in the distance a little past the Mine Train. As you attempt to walk towards this, you’ll find the kiosk near the bridge that leads to Be Our Guest. Once your table is ready, you’ll cross the bridge and wait for a host to seat you. The massive double doors will magically open and you will find yourself in entering into memorable chambers from the film as they present your dinner.

Haunted Mansion – Issue 1

Earlier this month, Marvel Comics released the first issue of the new Haunted Mansion mini-series. This will be the latest installment in the Disney Kingdoms line which tells stories inspired by a variety of Disney Parks, even drawing from concepts that never made it to the public. Over five issues, author Joshua Williamson and artist Jorge Coelho will take us inside the doors of one of Disney’s most beloved attractions.

Haunted Mansion #1 Review

Haunted Mansion Issue #1 Cover

As you can tell by the cover, the Disneyland version is used for the exterior. With the two rides being nearly identical in content, this should not affect the enjoyment by anyone only familiar with the Walt Disney World version.
