I felt that it was a good time to give my quick review on it.
We got to Disney Springs on a gorgeous Friday afternoon. We were hungry and wanted to try something new and different. AristoCrepes fit the bill perfectly. It was new, it was different and there was no line…a perfect combo! We looked over the menu and it was diverse enough for just about anyone. Savory to Sweet Crepes ranging from 6.99 to 8.99.
We decided on the savory beef crepe with horseradish creme, pickled onions, baby spinach and cheddar cheese. One word: DELISH!! Our food came out quick and fresh as it was made right in front of us. The crepe was warm and the ingredients paired so well together. The crepe was filling enough but not heavy in any way. This was truly a delight.
Knowing that AristoCrepes is going seasonal, the ‘no line’ piece does make sense. What doesn’t make sense is that people are missing out if they are not trying this place! I cant wait to get there again and try something else off this menu.
To quote my co host Dave “Meh” that was truly how I felt about my first and probably only Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I am going to be the first to say many factors contributed to that feeling, and some were my own fault so I will not put this all on the party. We arrived from the Poly at promptly 4 pm and were moved over to the right to get into the Magic Kingdom. The line moved fast and there were no issues. We went in and followed everyone to the special entrance to the right, but missed the big castle reveal down Main Street. That was a bummer for sure. Magic Kingdom was packed and I didn’t notice much of a difference when the party officially began after 7. It was just crowded. We fought some weather and rain early on and that was fine and expected.
The Parade, The Hocus Pocus Show and Fireworks: The parade….Meh at best, I will admit I am not a parade guy but it was talked about so highly that I think my expectations were tooooooo high. Hocus Pocus Spooktacular we saw as we were walking out (my 6 year old was tired) seemed fun and all, but Main Street was jammed. Fireworks…WOW!!!! Those were amazing, watched them from our balcony at the Poly. I am not sure if we would have had the same feeling about the fireworks from inside the park what an amazing vantage point.
Rides: Lines seemed shorter that is for sure and we walked on a few but not a lot of time to do them (Have to get your spot for the parade after all)
Trick or treating: Fun aspect and all, but when your 6 year old didn’t think it was all that great and he was getting free candy there is something to that. Cast members just put candy in bags many just seemed to go through the motion.
Final Results: I liked the aspect of getting in early and not using a full day park ticket for it. The Decorations were great to see, but only really on Main Street area. Parade was ok, Fireworks were best I may have ever seen. If you are going to MNSSHP I think kids need to be a little older so you can space out the whole party. If I was able to take advantage of the full time I might have thought more than Meh.
It was a warm Friday afternoon as Bruce from Albany, an amazing cast member from Saratoga Springs, dropped us at the back entrance of Disney Springs. We just got in for our long weekend of fun and what a way to start! As we drove through Saratoga Springs (and it is ginormous), Bruce gave us some history of the resort and some info on the weekend festivities. He went ‘above and beyond’ and it was just another example of why cast members make trips to WDW so magical…but back to the story at hand. He drops us off at the back of Disney Springs, we cross the bridge and head in.
I couldn’t wait to Try B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Company. It has been on the to-do list since it opened. No Line in front, PERFECT! I step right up and order my 3 Little Pigs Trio: a Reuben, a Bacon Wrapped with black bean salsa and a Chili and Cheese. I ordered a Goose Island Beer to wash it down and a Pretzel for the little one.
To say these were delicious is an understatement. The 3 Little Pigs came out fast, hot and fresh. All three had a unique flavor. I absolutely love Rueben’s in general and it was 3rd on the list of my favorites. Not to knock it in any way, just the other 2 were better. The Chili and Cheese was a perfect pair, the chili was a tad spicy but not over the top. The winner of the three in my opinion was the Bacon Wrapped Sausage and black bean salsa. It was different and full of flavor. The salsa was refreshing with the heat form the jalapeno. Winner, winner Sausage dinner! The Goose Island paired perfectly with the sampler.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t say something about the pretzel. My son is a pretzel connoisseur (well for a 6 year old anyways) and he was all smiles while eating this. It was chewy, warm and delicious.
Do yourself a favor next time you are at Disney Springs, stop by B.B. Wolf’s and get yourself a 3 Little Pigs Trio. You won’t be sorry!
