2nd Annual Sakura Festival At Morimoto Asia

March is full of festive food events at Disney Springs! We told you before about the Mighty St. Patricks Day Festival, but if the Emerald Isle isn't quite your style, maybe you'd prefer a journey to the Far East and Morimoto Asia's 2nd Annual Sakura Festival. The festival is a month-long celebration of the traditional arrival of Japanese cherry blossoms.

DFB Guide to the 2019 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Readers know that the Grown-ups team has long been fans of the Disney Food Blog Guides. We wouldn't dream of heading off on a Disney vacation without a couple of volumes loaded onto our phones and tablet. I've also mentioned recently that the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has become my favorite annual event. Looks like the folks over at DFB are pretty smitten too because this year they've launched a brand new e-book to celebrate.

“Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” Dessert Party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The ambiance of the night is pure Star Wars when you enjoy an out-of-this-world buffet of selection of Star Wars-themed desserts, specialty drinks and an assortment of charcuterie and cheeses. Then enjoy reserved seating for a nighttime spectacular.

Six Benefits To Sleeping In On Your Walt Disney World Vacation

It's vacation time; you've said good-bye to the daily grind, and hello to some rest and relaxation! Relax at Disney? Is that even possible? Most families I know come home telling me that they need a vacation from their vacation. Walt Disney World is packed with more great adventures than should ever be crammed into one trip. None the less, people try. I like to say that I'm an advocate for a kinder, gentler, Disney vacation. One where magical dreams are aided in part by snuggling into plush beds for a good night's sleep.

The Courtyard Bar At Disney's Grand Floridian

Nestled amongst the dignified buildings and tasteful greenery of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa guests will find the relaxed retreat of the Courtyard Bar. Situated beside the Courtyard Pool, this hideaway sits beneath a pretty lattice roof with turned white pillars and dainty gingerbread details. A ping-pong table and 2 TVs provide added entertainment for guests not looking for a swim.

Rise & Shine Brunch At Homecomin' Florida Kitchen

Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' Florida Kitchen & Shine Bar is one of my favorite spots to eat at Disney Springs these days. It's fair to say I'm pretty in love with the lunch/dinner menu, so on my last trip I made sure to stop by for some elevated country cooking at Chef Art's Rise & Shine Southern Brunch.

Souvenir Sensation: Build Your Own Na’vi Necklace

One of my favorite vacation activities has always been shopping. No matter where I go, I am always looking for trinkets to bring home from my travels. As many times as I have been to Walt Disney World, I still come home with pretty new things to keep my memories bright. With new areas opening all the time, I was excited on my last trip to visit some brand new gift shops. I started out at Windtraders, the main gift shop in Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
