My Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast review

My Review of the Star Wars Dine-in Galactic Breakfast at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Hollywood Studios

Update 5/10/14  Added examples of the bonus content photos you receive to the bottom of the post.

Our day began by arriving at Hollywood Studios about 7:30 am.  We saw that there were two signs in the character meal area on the far left of the entrance points.  We headed for the right line for the Star Wars meals.  A few other people lined up behind us and a couple were in front.  A guy in front said one lady told him to get in the back of the single line on the left and another lady told him to get in the Star Wars line on the right.  Star Wars Galactic Dine-in Character Breakfast at Hollywood Studios

 

I told him that someone will come tell us to get back into the long line and a few minutes later a lady will come tell us to go back to the line on the right.  I’m such a prophet 🙂 Continue reading My Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast review

RUMOR: Doc McStuffins to begin appearing in “early 2014”

As far as I’m aware, Drew81 broke the news last week on a web forum that Doc McStuffins will be coming to Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in early 2014.  He didn’t provide an actual date and the thread failed to mention that Doc McStuffins will be an exclusive character for Hollywood and Vine character breakfast and lunch.  She will take the place of one of the other characters in the rotation, likely Agent OSO (sorry) or June.  I’ll let you know when I hear the proposed date that she will begin and other details.  I wouldn’t want anyone to book an expensive meal just with the hope that she might appear.  Of course, you could always cancel by midnight the night before your reservation with no penalty.

I’ve also heard that we should expect Doc to appear in the Walt Disney World Christmas parade, the segment is supposed to be filmed this Saturday.

Limited Time Magic – Cinco de Mayo and Three Caballeros confirmed

May 5, 2013 to May 11, 2013This May, Walt Disney World Resort is throwing one festive party… and it’s all set to go down at the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo and Día de los Niños, Epcot will be hosting “¡Fiesta!”—a week-long celebration honoring the pride of Mexico, the personality of its people and the color of its culture.

From meeting classic characters to eating authentic Mexican foods and collecting magic merchandise, this is sure to be one fiesta you won’t soon forget!

Entertainment and character experiences are subject to change.

Meet The Three Caballeros
Don’t miss a rare opportunity to say “¡Saludos Amigos!” to three of the most famous Latin American lovebirds in history, The Three Caballeros!

Panchito, Jose Carioca and, of course, el Pato Donald are getting the band back together and they’re ready to pose for a picture or two—stop by and meet these classic Characters while you have the chance!

Move Your Feet to the Music
Once you’ve had your fill of The Three Caballeros, get ready to groove to music from south of the border, and maybe even move your feet a little!

First, soak up the spirit of the occasion with an energetic set by delightful marionettes. Then, float through the romanticized beauty of Mexico’s history with some folkloric dancing. Finally, work up an appetite with a little dancing of your own, set to the tunes of the world-renowned band, Mariachi Cobre!

Feast on Festive Mexican Eats
Ready for an authentic Mexican food experience? San Angel Inn Restaurante and La Hacienda de San Angel will both be a huge part of the occasion and they’re preparing a selection of fiesta-themed offerings to celebrate!

Check out the listings below for the Cinco de Mayo-specific menu, complete with appetizers, entrees and even a dessert!

Appetizers

  • Cream of Chile Poblano: Chile poblano, cilantro, onion, garlic and Mexican cream, garnished with tortilla strips, poblano peppers and cream ($7.50)
  • Chalupas de Chicharron: Corn dough topped with roasted chipotle sauce, shredded chicken, pork rind in green tomatillo sauce, fresh cheese, sour cream and avocado ($11.50)

Entrees

  • Chile en Nogada: Egg-battered stuffed poblano pepper with pork, almonds, raisins, apple, pineapple, cinnamon, roasted tomato and garlic, topped with a walnut cream sauce ($24.50)
  • Enchiladas de Mole Poblano: Corn tortillas filled with marinated chicken, topped with mole poblano sauce, sesame seeds and Mexican cream ($23.50)
  • Pollo Rostizado en Salsa de Mercado: Slow roasted French-chicken breast, topped with a roasted green tomato, pine nuts, garlic, onion and saffron sauce ($23.50)

Dessert

  • Camotes en Leche Condensada: Sweet potato dessert topped condensed milk, garnished with almond brittle ($7.00)

And for something fun to wash it all down with, stop by La Cava where you can sample an assortment of different drinks, including margarita-flavored Horchata and zesty Micheladas.

You can even try the famous “Banderita”—three separate shots that together form the colors of the Mexican flag!

Cinco de Mayo Ear Hats
Before this fiesta has you ready for a siesta, pop into a shop at the Mexico Pavilion and purchase a Cinco de Mayo ear hat!

Capturing the essence, color and iconic symbols of Mexico, there’s quite simply no more festive way to commemorate the year of the ear!
