I love chocolate, but gourmet chocolate is even better! Needless to say, I was excited to investigate the new chocolatier at Disney Springs, The Ganachery. This new shop is located just a few steps from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, where we were going for date night, so we decided to stop in and have a look around. Whether you’re purchasing pricey treats to take home or wish to watch them being made, The Ganachery is well worth exploring.
I’ve waited all year to see the Disney resorts completely decked out in full Yuletide splendor. Finally, the time is here! We’ve spent weeks visiting hotels in the evenings to see all the beautiful trees. Resort-hopping has kept us so busy that I honestly haven’t had time to put up a tree at home. I have to wonder if I need my own tree when I can enjoy these amazing displays whenever I want? Especially when visiting the resort trees involves no cleanup on my part whatsoever! Due to working extended hours, BobaChef hasn’t made Christmas cookies either, but Disney handles that as well. Lots of goodies are for sale at all the Deluxe resorts. A few even feature life-sized gingerbread displays, giving us the spicey smells of someone baking! Not able to make the trip this year? Follow along as I experience Christmas at WDW Resorts.
For over a decade, the WDW holiday gingerbread displays have filled the foyers of some of their best resorts with the scent of freshly baked cookies. Being our first Christmas in Orlando, we’ve never been able to view these edible creations up close until now. I am very excited to finally see these life-sized works of pastry art in person. Teams of Disney pastry chefs work for months baking, detailing and assembling these massive gingerbread sculptures. I can’t wait to share with you all the details of our evening exploring these holiday installations.
We recently saw Walking With Dinosaurs LIVE at the Leon County Civic Center. BobaChef loves dinosaurs of any type and we are both fans of the Discovery Channel (now BBC) show, Walking With Dinosaurs, so we jumped at the chance to see the live show. If you have the opportunity to attend a performance yourself, I highly recommend it!
