I was really excited to see Mickey's Toontown in Disneyland. It reminded me of the old section that was replaced by Storybook Circus in Disney World with Mickey and Minnie's houses. The area is tucked at the back of Disneyland near Small World and has this awesome moving sign above the entrance.
Cars Land is most likely the most photographed part of California Adventure. Cars Land had three attractions, multiple eating locations and a mountain ton of photo opportunities. It was by far my favourite land in both parks. Beware, I have a lot of photos!
Pixar Pier is the reimagining of Paradise Pier at Disney's California Adventure park. It is home to multiple attractions, including World of Colour on the lake during the evenings.
The Rose and Crown Dining Room is a Table Service restaurant in the UK Pavilion in Epcot. The restaurant is themed to a traditional British pub and has both indoor and outdoor seating and fantastic viewing locations for the fireworks. Rose and Crown serves traditional British food and also has a separate bar area.
Walt Disney World has two Rainforest Cafe locations; one at Animal Kingdom and one at Disney Springs. My favourite location is by far the Animal Kingdom location. It fits in perfectly with the theming of Animal Kingdom, and it also has its own secret entrance into the park!
Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort is an Epcot area Disney moderate resort. The resort is themed to be a Southern town along the Mississippi river, with mansion houses and the bayou. Riverside also boasts Princess themed rooms with Disney easter eggs throughout from the genie lamp taps to the footstool from Beauty and the Beast.
Ohana is a character dining location during breakfast and a table service location for dinner at Disney's Polynesian Resort. For breakfast you can meet Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto in their Hawaiian outfits whilst you enjoy a family style buffet breakfast.
Ohana serves only breakfast and dinner and prices range from $35-$60 per person plus sales tax. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, Ohana is one Table Service credit. Both breakfast and dinner are all you can eat family style buffets with a Hawaiian twist.
Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano is, you guessed it, an Italian restaurant in Hollywood Studios. It is located in the Grand Avenue section of the park around the back of Muppet Vision 3D. It serves lunch and dinner and prices range from $15-$34 per person plus sales tax. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, Mama Melrose is one table service credit.
In September 2017 I visited Walt Disney World and stayed at Caribbean Beach. The day I flew out I got the update that Hurricane Irma was looking to pass directly over Walt Disney World.
I have been in multiple hurricanes in Orlando, so brushed it off as nothing to worry about. I knew what precautions I needed to take in the instance that we would be on lockdown and I knew what would be the limit.
Flying out was a little bumpy, but wasn't anything to worry about. When I arrived for check in, they did inform us again that the hurricane path was still directed towards Disney World. I was told that currently there were no precautions to take and everything was still operating as normal.
It is worth noting that as this point, Caribbean Beach was undergoing severe refurbishments and the quick service dining location was currently in a marquee.
When I got to the room, there was a package on the table.
