It is just so nice to be close to family and we are able to see them whenever we want. We decided to take my mother-in-law and sister-in-law out for Mother’s Day and they picked Paddlefish at Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs.

Paddlefish, formerly Fulton’s Crab House, is one of the new dining options at Disney Springs. The restaurant is housed in an anchored paddle boat named Empress Lily and has been at this location since the late 70s. We have eaten at Fulton’s Crab House many times, but this was our first time dining at Paddlefish.

The restaurant has been remodeled with a trendier look than Fulton’s, but the upper scale dining elements are still there. Even the menu has been overhauled. You can still expect some great seafood dishes, but now there are some new eclectic additions. We started with the lobster corn dogs, which were amazing!

Disney Dining Review – Monsieur Paul At Epcot

As a Francophile, I love to celebrate my birthday with a bottle of Verve Clicqot and a great meal at a wonderful French Restaurant. This year we decided to try Monsieur Paul at Walt Disney World’s Epcot. We have not been here since it has changed over from Bistro du Paris many years ago.

In this video we share our experience and what we ordered as well as give you a detailed review of our meal and the service. Bon appetit!

Boardwalk Inn & Villas Tour – Walt Disney World


The Boardwalk Inn and Villas Resort is probably one of (if not THE) our favorite places to stay while we visit Walt Disney World. This is where we stayed on our last trip to Walt Disney World. The Boardwalk is a turn-of-the-century,  Atlantic City style waterfront resort. The hotel has so many amenities including:

  • complimentary wifi
  • free transportation via the Disney Transportation buses and the Magical Express
  • a spa and fitness center
  • a fun pool area
  • easy online check in
  • airline check in and bag handling
  • laundry and dry cleaning services
  • Fantasia mini golf
  • 2 and 4 person bike rentals to cruise around the Boardwalk
  • a playground area
  • tennis courts
  • arcade game room


The Boardwalk Resort is better known for their Coney Island style boardwalk with tons of activities, live music, exceptional dining and bars. There is something for everyone and all ages to do on the boardwalk! Boardwalk activities and dining include:

  • jogging or biking around the boardwalk area
  • Flying Fish restaurant (mostly seafood menu)
  • Big River Grille and Brew Works
  • ESPN Club
  • Trattoria al Forno (which does an amazing character brunch)
  • Boardwalk Bakery (quick counter service for breakfast and snacks)
  • Ample Hills Creamery
  • Pizza Window (quick grab and go pizza spot)
  • Belle Vue Lounge (perfect spot to play a game of chess or other board games)
  • Abracadabra Bar

In the video below, I give you a quick tour of the resort and of the Villa we stayed in. The Villas offer more than a standard resort room and are intended for larger families doing longer stays at Walt Disney World.

This is by far our favorite place to stay at Walt Disney World! Within easy walking distance to Epcot, it’s the perfect spot. Have you stayed at the Boardwalk before? If so leave me a comment below and tell me about your experience.
