Running(?) All Over Walt Disney World!

Wow!  Between Disney Springs and Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, I certainly have been running us all over Walt Disney World the last few weeks!  I need a rest!

Actually, let’s stop to breathe for a few minutes and review this week’s poll results, OK?  On Monday, we tackled pizza.  Yum.  Are you as big of a pizza fan as me?

Well, we visited the BoardWalk Pizza Window.  About 56% of you have tasted their cuisine, and the vast majority rank it as a 3 or 4 on a scale from 1 to 5.  That’s above average, at least!

When pressed, you’d prefer to sample either their Pepperoni or Signature pizza!  It was too close to call, really.  The poll is still open, my friends.  Click back to this link to register your opinions!

Yesterday, we bounced over to Disney Springs to enjoy Walt Disney World’s newest creperie – AristoCrêpes!  After perusing a menu that provides both savory and sweet options, we made our selections!

Talk about split decisions!  On the savory side, the results were, more or less, dead even!  I hear good things about their Beef Crepe.  The voters slightly preferred the Turkey Crepe.

For our sweet tooth, the results were spread across the board, as well.  Everything but strawberry seems to catch your fancy.  This poll is still open, too, folks.  Access it here!

As much as you see me cover the best of Disney’s food and drink, Mrs. All in WDW and I also focus a good portion of our visits on exercise.

Daily walks about property are our preferred physical activity, and, whether it be through the parks or around the resorts, options for enjoyable, relaxing, scenic strolls are plentiful.

I have begun to compile my own favorite “courses” through property, and I thought I’d share the detail.  Behold, the beginning of my collection of “maps”!  Not exhaustive, but quite useful.  Enjoy … and get walking!

Menu “Recon”: AristoCrêpes at Disney Springs

Good morning, my friends!  Let me ask you a question … have you ever enjoyed a crêpe from Epcot’s Crêpes des Chefs de France?

Yes?  We’ve only stopped once, I’m afraid.  Their Sugar Crêpe was warm and delicious.  It wasn’t too filling and tasted great!  Take a look back here for the full picture review!

Why do I bring up this pavilion’s crêpes?  Well, it’s because France is no longer the only “game” in town.  Thanks to the on-going transformation at Disney Springs, we, now, have AristoCrêpes!


Loaded with a “… a swoon-worthy selection of sweet and savory crepes.”, Disney wants you to “[s]urprise your taste buds with … [d]elicious picks [that] range from s’mores and key lime cheesecake to beef with horseradish cream and turkey with brie”.


So.  You know you’re going to visit AristoCrêpes sooner or later.  I know that we will.  When you saunter up to their counter, what will you order?  Let us know … in the poll below!  Bon appetit, folks!

Dining Recon: Breakfast at Olivia’s

I’m on my way back to Disney Springs, folks.  I really am.  Having said that, welcome to Disney’s Old Key West Resort!

A great place, it’s home to one of our favorite spots – the Gurgling Suitcase!  The suitcase is a great indoor (while you feel like you’re outdoors) watering hole.  Take a look here!

But, today isn’t about Disney bars.  It’s about delicious breakfasts!  It’s also about a little-known and under-appreciated restaurant.  My friends, meet Olivia’s!

After a morning walk through Disney Springs, Mrs. All in WDW and I found ourselves hungry for breakfast.  Desiring a relaxing sit-down experience, we found ourselves visiting Olivia.




Olivia’s is a very welcoming locale with great nautical decor!




Headlined by a phenomenal Loaded Key West Bloody Mary, their menu is loaded with options!



Wow! That really IS loaded!

Mrs. All in WDW enjoyed her choice.  One of Olivia’s delicious omelets.  Basically, it was the Monroe Egg White Omelet but with whole eggs and without cheese.


I was enticed by, what I felt was, a much more unique dish … Crab Cake Eggs Benedict.  Mmmm.  Did someone say “crab cake”?


I don’t think it was the best breakfast I’ve ever had – Trattoria al Forno still owns that honor – but it was very good.  Definitely not your ‘run of the mill’ preparation, it’s worth having at least once.

My friends, Olivia’s is, pretty much, a well-kept secret.  But, then, Disney’s Old Key West Resort is under-appreciated as well.

If you find yourself out and about and in need of a meal, pay a visit to Olivia.  She does a great job!  We should keep her in mind!

Menu “Recon”: BoardWalk Pizza Window

Good morning, my friends!  Before we jump into today’s delectable topic, one last time, let’s review the polls we ran last week.

Last Monday, we peered into the menu at Disney Springs’ B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. and chose what we wanted to order for lunch … or, dinner!

The result?  Their 3 Little Pigs Trio led the way!  Hey!  Why not have a little bit of “everything”?  It surely does look like a phenomenal bite!

On Thursday, we admitted Off Kilter into All in WDW’s Hall of Fame.  Congratulations, Off Kilter!  Did you agree with that selection?

Well, the voting is closed now, and your voice was loud and clear.  Over 76% of you say, ‘Yes!  They most certainly deserve to be honored’!  And, so they have been!

Finally, in that very same post, we scratched the surface of the debate that will never go away.  Maelstrom vs. Frozen!  Where do you stand?

Much to my personal pleasure, the original Norwegian adventure is also your choice.  Over 62% of you prefer it to Disney’s attempt to capitalize on all that is Frozen.

Today, folks, we’re back to food.  Big surprise, eh?  Before I launch us back to Disney Springs, I want to take a quick look at yet another BoardWalk favorite.  Pizza!

Let’s quote Disney … “Stroll down Disney’s BoardWalk with a hot slice in hand or order a whole pie to feed the entire family.

Take your pick from [among the] Cheese, Pepperoni or the Signature (Italian sausage, onions, peppers, and balsamic glaze) pizza[s]”!




Let’s see a show of hands … who, here, has had one of the ‘slices’ served by the BoardWalk’s “famous” pizza window?

Wait!  I can’t “see” you.  Answer these polls, instead!  Let’s see if you think that this BoardWalk Quick Service is worth filling your belly and putting a dent in your wallet!

Love Pours Out For All in WDW’s Hall of Famers!

Stunning response, my friends!  Simply phenomenal.  What an outpouring of love you displayed yesterday!  Both of All in WDW’s “Hall of Fame” members have your undeniable support.

Going back to yesterday’s polls – they’re still open if you want to weigh in, folks – I, first, asked you … Frozen Ever After or Maelstrom?  Which do you prefer?


The verdict, as of this morning?  Well, about 61% of you threw your support to the original Norwegian adventure!  Vikings, trolls, and polar bears rejoice!

Next, we welcomed the Celtic rock band – Off Kilter – into All in WDW’s annals of renown.  Do you think they belong in our “Hall of Fame”?

Landslide!  To date, over 76% of you believe that this much-missed Epcot entertainment option deserves their place of honor!  Congratulations, Off Kilter!  Bring them back, Disney!

Thanks, again, for your participation, everyone.  We’ll be back – with more food! – really soon!
