Breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park

posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


It is a little-known fact that my first role with Disney Parks was as a hostess at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park. Last week, I had a chance to put their service to the test by going to breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant with some of my fellow cast members and friends. Originally introduced as a test, breakfast is now a permanent offering. Reservations can be made starting on August 5 for dates October 4 and beyond.

We shared a selection of delicious pastries as we ate our entrees. My friend Nancy ordered the newest addition to the menu, the Croque Madame. This open-faced ham sandwich is topped with a fried egg, Gruyere cheese and creamy béchamel, served with fresh fruit. Vivi loved the Eggs Florentine, a puff pastry shell filled with scrambled eggs, cheese and fresh spinach served with country ham and roasted plum tomatoes. And me? I couldn’t resist the Open-Faced Bacon and Egg Sandwich, with poached eggs, thick-cut applewood bacon, Brie cheese, arugula and tomatoes on a toasted baguette.

While dining there, I received exciting news that the testing phase is over, and breakfast is now a permanent offering. I also got a sneak peek of the artwork that will be on new kid’s souvenir cups, debuting in October. The cups will be available for an additional cost. Check out the artwork below!

posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Amanda Adler, Public Relations Manager


What sort of view do you want on your dream vacation? Rolling hills, epic mountains, serene lakes, lush vegetation, bustling cityscapes; whichever you prefer you can find it with Adventures by Disney. While I have a hard time picking my favorite, I can’t help but be intrigued by this volcano view, found on the Adventures by Disney Costa Rica trip.

This view of Arenal volcano is visible just outside your window at the Hotel Arenal Fortuna, which serves as the home base for two nights of this Costa Rican adventure. Not only will you enjoy this spectacular sight, you’ll also take flight on a zip line excursion through the rainforest, soak in relaxing hot springs, set off on a white water rafting adventure and more.

And if you’re the type who enjoys basking in a relaxing ocean view the Adventures by Disney Costa Rica vacation offers that too. You can soak in some sea breezes in Guanacaste, on the western coast of the country, and enjoy beach time, a private catamaran excursion, mojito making and other activities perfect for simply unwinding.

What is your dreamiest vacation view?

VIDEO – Visiting Ice Palace Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Frozen Summer Fun

A few weeks ago I shared details about the recently opened Ice Palace Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a wintry salon where guests ages 3-12 can undergo a magical transformation, as they prepare for Coronation day during Frozen Summer Fun. In honor of National Sister’s Day yesterday, August 2, I thought it would be a perfect time to check out the “Frozen” fun with fellow teammate Katie Thompson.

Here are a few additional images I captured during our visit. The cupcakes in the Ice Palace Café were delicious!

The Ice Palace Boutique will only be offered during Frozen Summer Fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which continues through September 7, 2015.

Reservations can be made in advance and are highly recommended. To book your appointment, please call 407-827-7400. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call. The location may be able to accommodate guests without reservations on a limited, first-come, first-serve basis each day.
