HAPPY HALLOWEEN from us at the Disneynut blog page!

We wish you a Happy and SAFE Halloween!  Remember, be kind to the kiddies!




FOODIE FRIDAY!

We are off on our cruise adventure, so I thought I would share some "cruise food" with you today.

Here are a couple photos of our dessert from PALO on the Disney Dream. This is the chocolate souffle' which they are famous for.  I can't wait to experience this again at our PALO dinner aboard the Wonder on November 1st.




Mouth watering yet?  ;-)

Throwback Thursday

   This week on TBT, we take a trip back two years ago, when we left for our last cruise.  Today we fly off to Miami, and are spending the night at the Conrad Miami on Brickell Ave. and having a nice dinner with a Disney collector friend from Miami.  We will dine at Juvia, a lovely place that I am looking forward to experiencing myself.  

   The picture below is from the CDL bus when we arrived at Port Canaveral, and saw our floating home for the next 4 nights.  



What a beauty!







We are super excited about this next cruise, and can't wait to experience the Disney Wonder is all its glory!

Catch you all when we get back!




I will have a review of Juvia in an upcoming post here on the blog page.  However, my friend dines here quite often, so I know it has to be good.  If you are in the Miami area for business or pleasure, be sure to check it out.  The link for the restaurant is below:

Tortuga Tavern in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom is 
a frequently overlooked and under-rated location.

As it sits right across from Pirates of the Caribbean, it is in one of my favorite areas.  They feature Mexican fare, and my favorite there is the taco salad.  

If you have never stopped to dine here, please do so on your next visit!

My Disney Pin Collection Monday

Here we have one of my favorite pins.  It contains in 3D effect, the PARTNERS statue in front of Cinderella Castle, and then on the front level Donald holding his Mickey balloon in one hand, and a Mickey Ice Cream bar in the other, with Goofy taking his picture.
