“Dining Recon”: Trattoria al Forno

It’s coming, my friends!  It really is!


Per Disney, “Take your taste buds on a tour of Italy with a tempting array of regional specialties and crowd-pleasing classics. Signature standouts [will] include wood-fired pizzas and pastas prepared al forno, Italian for ‘baked in an oven’.”

Disney’s BoardWalk’s Trattoria al Forno cannot be far away!

Breakfast and Dinner menus are posted on Disney’s web site.  Advance Dining Reservations are available to be scheduled.

And, the restaurant, itself, is taking shape!



Opening day is currently set for December 18th, fans.  Handcrafted mozzarella.  Fresh cavatelli pasta.  Giant meatballs.

Tell us, how anxious are you to try this new WDW dining gem?

Holiday Flash Report: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Holiday resort-hopping isn’t complete until you acquire a gingerbread shingle.  Is it?  The Grand Floridian, as usual, is incredibly “decked out” and looks absolutely beautiful!

Of course, the object of our desire will come as no surprise – the famed Gingerbread House!

I don’t know why we weren’t aware of this already, but this annual “Floridian” tradition began back in 1999.  That was the very year that we made our first pilgrimage to The World!

We had to stand in line for quite a while.  A very popular place!

But, plenty to read while we waited.

And, of course … the Gingerbread House has been FROZEN as well.

For us, it came down to one item.  We couldn’t escape without one (or more!) of those gingerbread shingles. Let me tell you … they are delicious!
