Rainforest Cafe at Disney - Review

The Rainforest Cafe has two Disney World locations, one at Downtown Disney and the other just outside the entrance gates to Animal Kingdom. With all of the restaurant choices on Disney World property, how does Rainforest Cafe stack up as an eating experience? A Little History The themed restaurant chain opened its first location in 1994 at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. At one point there were high hopes for Rainforest Cafe spreading nationally. The company went public in 1995, but disappointing results pushed the stock price down through 2000 until the company was finally acquired by Landry’s Seafood Restaurants. As of February 2014, there were 32 total restaurants in existence. The Rainforest Cafe Experience Step into the Rainforest Cafe and you will

The China Pavilion at Epcot Center

The China Pavilion is one of the original country pavilions which opened with Epcot Center at Disney World on October 1, 1982. One of eleven existing countries, the China pavilion is rich in history, shopping, and good food. The pavilion greets guests with a replica of Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, inside which is a museum of Chinese artifacts and history. This is also where guests find Reflections of China, a 360 degree Circle Vision movie about the history of China. The Temple of Heaven building is the iconic symbol of the China pavilion, and one of Epcot’s most photogenic buildings.

Kringla Bakeri og Kafe Review

We enjoy bringing you reviews of restaurants and eateries around Walt Disney World resort, but today’s review is a true pleasure. The Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase is one of our favorite eateries in all of Walt Disney World. The cobblestone faced Kringla sits inviting, yet nondescript near the Norway Viking Ship and Maelstrom ride. But all who find their way in to the Kringla Bakeri seem to leave with a big smile on their faces. The treats inside Kringla are some of the best in Disney World, and many are very affordable. The Kringla Bakeri is included on the Disney Dining Plan as a daily snack. However you will get the best bang for your buck by
