STK Disney Springs Weekend Lunch Review (Brunch Coming in April)

Hi everyone!

We've posted a number of dining reviews at Disney Springs recently - mostly media events this year, but there are a few newer restaurants we've not yet tried. STK was one of them (except for an opening event with appetizers and drinks, which our group left early from). There was a great STK promo over the holidays that included an extra $50.00 with a $50.00 gift card. That offer was too good to pass up, and we went last weekend for lunch. Lunch is now only on weekends, although there is a brunch coming and the server said it'd be served every day (I know that would be unusual, so we'll see how it pans out). Apparently that will begin around mid-April, though there wasn't an exact date available when I asked. With so many restaurants at Disney Springs, and fantastic steak at The Boathouse within a quick walk, I think brunch would be a very good addition to bring something unique to Disney Springs. At the same time, lunch was excellent and we'd dine here again. Here is a look at our experience!

Dining Review: Planet Hollywood Observatory at Disney Springs

Hi everyone!

We were invited last week to the Planet Hollywood Observatory at Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) to try a variety of items off the menu. I'll start off by saying that I personally prefer the new menu to the old one, I had a good meal and the desserts are certainly showstoppers in their own right. It was fun to look around at the restaurant artifacts as well, and I'll show some of that later in the article.

I'll talk about these desserts later too, but first I'll share the appetizers and entrees.

Geyser Point Bar & Grill Open at Disney's Wilderness Lodge: Photos & Video (Including Food & Drinks)

Hi everyone!

Geyser Point Bar & Grill opened on February 13th at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. We were there on opening day, which also was the day that Roaring Fork closed for refurbishment through maybe sometime this summer. Disney's Wilderness Lodge has been one of my favorite resorts since it opened in 1994. It didn't take long after that for a DVC addition to be added (The Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge), now renamed Boulder Ridge Villas. New additions to the resort will include the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, and Geyser Point Bar & Grill services that area.

Paddlefish Restaurant Adds Solid Seafood Dining with Rooftop Waterfront Views to Disney Springs (Review)

Hi everyone!

We were invited to the Paddlefish grand opening at Disney Springs on Friday night, and then joined blogger friends for brunch on Sunday to get a more complete experience. The iconic boat has gone through several incarnations (as has Downtown Disney/Disney Springs), beginning with the Empress Lilly (I went to a character breakfast there in the late 70's or early 80's), and then as Fulton's Crab House, and now Paddlefish. Levy Restaurants owns Paddlefish, along with the neighboring Portobello as well as Wolfgang Puck Cafe on the Disney Springs West Side. The Disney Springs landscape is now very restaurant heavy, with a lot of terrific dining - both counter service and table service - to choose from. Paddlefish is very much a seafood restaurant, with a handful of items geared toward non-seafood eaters like me. The restaurant started taking reservations a few days after opening.
