Easter is almost here which means it is time for the sixth annual Easter egg display at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. These marvelous eggs are decorated by Disney pastry chefs from each resort and will be on display until April 29th. They are always a fun tradition for us to see each year. It is always amazing to see how beautifully crafted each egg is.
We really enjoy seeing all the creative eggs and love this Easter tradition. If you are at Disney during Easter they are definitely worth checking out!
Today was the grand opening of the Polite Pig at Disney Springs. We've been looking forward to this opening since owners/Chefs James and Julie Petrakis also own/operate the very popular Orlando restaurants The Ravenous Pig and Swine & Sons. The Polite Pig is a quick-casual eatery. You order, pay, are given a pager and select your seat. Your food is brought out shortly and servers refill your drinks, clear your table and get you anything you may need, even that is to order a dessert you might have left room for. Our server Sara was very friendly, offered lots of fun information about the restaurant and answered any questions we had. She was great!
They had an impressive sauce bar. Our favorite was the Lil John's Black Pepper BBQ. I also really enjoyed the Alabama white sauce. It was a BBQ flavor I have never had before and the creamy, vinegar taste really appealed to my taste buds.
Without further ado... the food!
Over all we loved the Polite Pig and welcome it to Disney Springs with open arms and satisfied tummies. We can not wait to bring our friends and family back to try even more off the menu!
Today is opening day of baseball so I thought it would be an appropriate time to share our pictures from spring training at ESPN Wide World of Sports. Where else can you eat a Mickey ice cream bar while watching baseball? Growing up in Southern California my grandpa had season tickets to the Dodger games. It was the best day ever when I got to go to a baseball game with him. Little did I know those many years ago that those memories would mean so much. Now when I go to a baseball game all those wonderful memories come flooding back.
A few years ago we started attending spring training games at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports where for 20 years it has been the home for the Atlanta Braves training. Now I have to admit I am not a Braves fan but an avid Cardinals fan (I hope you don't judge me to harshly for that!) There is something fun, may I say almost more personal about attending a spring training game. You feel closer to the players and action. If you combine Baseball and Disney then I am pretty happy girl.
Sadly Atlanta Braves won't be doing their spring training at Disney much longer. Their contract has run out and they will be moving further south. Their new stadium won't be ready by next spring and there is a rumor (I stress the rumor part since nothing has been confirmed at this time) they may do 1 or 2 more years at Disney if so I'll be there for sure to cheer on my favorite baseball team. The stadium is beautiful and I enjoy Mickey shaped food with my games.
