• Beef Sukiyaki from EPCOT

    May 22, 2018cookwcharacter

    I came across the recipe for this really awesome Sukiyaki on the Disboards from the Yakitori House in Japan. The recipe sounded delicious, but I didn’t want to use noodles. Mostly because I already had rice (I buy it in 25 lb bags, since its cheaper that way and we eat it frequently.) With that in…

    While we were in Disney World at the beginning of August, we took some time to stop at the Boulangerie Patisserie in France. While I was there, I got a Hazelnut Chocolate Beignet. I’d show you a picture… but I ate it too fast. If I hadn’t been so hot, I might have gone back…

    I’m going to take a brief moment today to remind you of one of the most important Cast Members at Disney – and one of the ones you don’t often actually see or think hard about – Mousekeeping! Without Mousekeepers, the resorts would be a mess. Think about it – they come in, clean up…

    April 8, 2017cookwcharacter

    There’s a flavored popcorn stand in EPCOT that I’ve heard many people rave about. And apparently flavored popcorn is a big thing in Disneyland and some of the other parks across the world. What a perfect snack! I mean, who doesn’t love the smell of popcorn? (Unless its burnt. No one, except a friend from…

  • 10 Ways to Deal with the Heat at Disney World

    March 28, 2017cookwcharacter

    I am a teacher. My parents are teachers. As such, we have always had to schedule any trips to Disney around school vacations. Because of this, we’ve always gone in August. Now, I’m sure you know that Orlando in August is a sauna, to put it mildly. I have always had issues with the heat,…
