Yachtsman Steakhouse Dining Review

Yachtsman Steakhouse is a signature restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. This spot specializes in steak and it serves up what we think are the best steaks on Disney World property. Inside you will find a richly themed coastal New England restaurant much like the theming in the rest of the Yacht Club Resort. It’s a great setting for a nice romantic meal. Let’s take a look at our full Yachtsman Steakhouse dining review. Yachtsman Steakhouse Quick Breakdown Service: Table-Service Type of Food: Steak, Chicken, Allergy Options Price: $$$$ Location: Yacht Club Disney Dining Plan: Yes, 2 Credits Discounts: Tables in Wonderland, Annual Passholder Features: Reservations, Alcohol Good For: Steak, Special Occasions Menu: Official Disney Dinner Menu A Tour Around Yachtsman Steakhouse The entrance of this restaurant is marked in a beautiful golden sign. Not this restaurant is tucked into the back of the Yacht Club Resort. You have to go past all of Ale and Compass first so if you feel lost don’t worry it really is that far of a walk off the lobby of the hotel. When you enter be sure to look to the left to take a look at the trimming station. This is where they cut the steaks for the evening.

Disney Enchantment Firework Show

Today on the Disney Parks blog we learned a little more about the new firework show coming to the Magic Kingdom, Disney Enchantment. This all-new spectacular inspires everyone to believe in magic, with captivating Disney music, enhanced lighting, immersive projection effects that extend for the first time down Main Street, U.S.A., and an emotional original song, entitled “You Are the Magic,” by seven-time GRAMMY-winner Philip Lawrence. And throughout the show, stunning fireworks fill the sky, providing a great experience for guests throughout the park and neighboring resort hotels. “Since opening day in 1971, dazzling fireworks shows have provided that perfect exclamation point at the end of a fantastic day at Magic Kingdom Park,” said Mark Renfrow, Show Director, Disney Live Entertainment. “From ‘Fantasy in the Sky’ and ‘Wishes’ to holiday spectaculars and ‘Happily Ever After,’ each new show has raised the bar, and the best is yet to come! I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re creating with ‘Disney Enchantment.’” In “Disney Enchantment,” we join dreamers like Tiana, Miguel, Rapunzel, and brothers Ian & Barley from “Onward,” and we set out on an incredible journey with adventurers such as Moana, Raya, and Judy Hopps.

When we do quick half-day trips into the park I still find myself clocking up to 7 miles. First off, we recommend all you ladies out there stay away from heels!
