Governor DeSantis Says Florida Will Have No New Lockdowns, Mask Mandates, or Other COVID-19 Measures


In a press conference today, Governor Ron DeSantis stated that Florida would have no more anti-COVID-19 measures, including lockdowns or mask mandates, though cases continue to rise in the state and the rest of the U.S.A. He specifically said there would be “no lockdowns, no fines, no school closures. No one’s losing their job because of a government dictate. Nobody’s losing their livelihood or their business. That is totally off the table.” The press conference at Boggy Creek Elementary was […]

REVIEW – Say Welcome Back and Howdy Partner to Woody’s Lunch Box: Now Reopened

Practically every quick service location inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios is now reopened, as Woody’s Lunch Box rides back onto the scene. This popular spot for a quick and fun place to grab a meal inside Toy Story Land has become a favorite among some Disney fans. With casual lunch favorites that go beyond boring burgers, we’re glad to have Woody’s Lunch Box open again. Our team decided to revisit it to make sure we’ve still got a friend in Woody.

Smoked Turkey Sandwich and Totchos at Woody’s Lunch Box

We have listing and ratings for all Walt Disney World restaurants on our site and our Lines app. And our readers give Woody’s Lunch Box an 89% thumbs up rating, and a ranking of number 30 out of 107 quick service options at Walt Disney World. What makes Woody’s Lunch Box a popular spot is the fun theme, and the quality food. Rather than offering burgers and hot dogs, the menu at Woody’s Lunch Box contains a variety of sandwiches as well as loaded potato barrels – known as Totchos – and the delicious lunch box tarts. The prices are also relatively low compared to other quick service spots. There are also two plant-based items available, including the Totchos and a Grilled “Cheese” Sandwich.

Totchos (Loaded Potato Barrels) at Woody’s Lunch Box

Chrissy on our team selected the Smoked Turkey Sandwich as well as the Totchos – because you really didn’t eat at Woody’s Lunch Box if you don’t get the Totchos. The Smoked Turkey Sandwich is made with thick-sliced smoked turkey breast, lettuce, and tomato with Dijonnaise. It is served cold on Sunflower Multigrain bread, and it is one of the lightest items on the menu. At $9.99 it is a great value, considering it also comes with a side.

Totchos (Loaded Potato Barrels) at Woody’s Lunch Box

The Totchos are heavy and satisfying – a crowd favorite. Potato barrels are topped with beef and bean chili, shredded cheese and signature queso with tomatoes and corn chips finished with sour cream and a sprinkle of green onions. For $8.99 it is a great deal. And if you’re ever at Hollywood Studios on a rare chilly day the Totchos are a must. Both the sandwich and the Totchos were as good as we remember, and we’re glad to have this location back open.

This location offers mobile ordering and is a walk-up counter with outdoor seating only. We highly recommend selecting your arrival time and order on the MyDisneyExperience app while in line at a nearby ride. Once you’re done with the ride check-in for the arrival time and pick up your order. The outdoor seating is fun and full of cute detail; after all, you are shrunk down to the size of one of Andy’s toys.

Review! An EXCLUSIVE Gingerbread Recipe Has Been Created for Disney’s Riviera Resort!

We just found one of the PRETTIEST gingerbread cookies in Disney World!

Gingerbread Mickey Cookies

Disney’s Riviera Resort is home to Le Petit Cafe which has brought us some of our favorite holiday desserts and coffee drinks. We’ve got another holiday snack to add to our growing list of favorites. Right now, Le Petit Cafe is baking up some Mickey Gingerbread Cookies that are exclusive only to the Riveria Resort!  

What makes these cookies so special? First of all, the recipe is only being used for the Gingerbread Mickey Cookies sold at this resort. The special ingredients include honey and rye flour. Also, they’re pretty to look at! AND, you get two cookies for $5.99. Compare this to one standard Gingerbread Mickey that costs $3.99.

Gingerbread Mickey Cookies

See how pretty they are?? The backside of the cookie is coated in chocolate with the Riviera Resort lettering printed in a gold pattern. One of the cookies features an indent with the same logo.

Gingerbread Mickey Cookies

Ok, they’re pretty, the ingredients are different, and you get two cookies. Most importantly, do they taste good?? The results are in…yes! They do taste good! The gingerbread spice is fairly prominent and the honey adds a good amount of sweetness to the cookie. They’re fresh, large cookies that are pretty and yummy.

We will say that the honey tones down the gingerbread spice a bit. You might find this cookie a little too sweet if you love the taste of spicy gingerbread. Either way, we suggest lovers of gingerbread cookies give these delightful treats a try!

Review: Two Specialty Coffee Drinks Debut in Disney World!

It is indeed the season to “have a cup of cheer,” but we’re going for one better today.

Frozen Coffee with Tap 357 Whisky at EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays

Because they’re serving TWO new cups of cheerspecialty coffee beverages, to be exact — at Disney’s Riviera Resort. And we picked up the Noel Blanc Glace and the Toasted Praline Cold Brew to bring you this extra-caffeinated review!

You’ll see both beverages listed under the Specialty Iced Coffees on the menu at Le Petit Café.

Le Petit Cafe Menu

The Noel Blanc Glace isn’t your typical cup o’ joe, that’s for sure. This frozen cold brew coffee is blended with white mocha, cinnamon, and milk. (You’ll also spot a Noel Blanc Latte up for grabs — hot or iced, your choice.)

Noel Blanc Glace

It’s topped with blue sugar crystals for a seasonal winter touch. And those sugar crystals also serve as a pretty good indicator of the flavor profile for this very, VERY sweet drink.

Noel Blanc Glace

It’s so sweet, that it doesn’t taste much like coffee — it’s really much more of a dessert, in that sense. But the white mocha and cinnamon together are a totally winning combo, making this like a Christmas dessert in a cup!

Noel Blanc Glace

The Noel Blanc Glace is $5.99, and while it might not be ideal for your morning sip, it is a really enjoyable treat nonetheless.

The Toasted Praline Cold Brew doesn’t sport an especially unique appearance, comparatively. It features the Resort’s specialty blend cold brew served together with house-made praline marshmallow cream.

Toasted Praline Cold Brew

The cream blends in wonderfully with the cold brew, boasting a very lovely praline flavor. The drink is sweeter than most cold brews due to the cream, which is almost similar to a syrup in regards to how much it affects the color of the beverage.

Toasted Praline Cold Brew

The marshmallow presents itself primarily in the aftertaste, and blends in nicely with the praline as you enjoy the rest of the drink.

Toasted Praline Cold Brew

The Toasted Praline Cold Brew is $4.79, and came out as the favorite of the two drinks for our tastes. But, as we’ve learned here at Le Petit Café, a lot of the specialty coffee creations here are typically quite good. And no matter which you choose, you’ll likely find it worth your coffee splurge, as there tends to be something to suit just about every coffee palate.

And, hey, while we’re here at Disney’s Riviera Resort… did you get to see it all decked out for the holidays?

Take a tour of the holiday decorations at Disney’s Riviera Resort here!

We’ve got more coming to you from Le Petit Cafe at Riviera Resort, so stay tuned!
