Toledo - Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

Last updated February 17, 2020

In late July, my daughters and I had dinner at Toledo - Tapas, Steak & Seafood, a new table service restaurant on the top floor of Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.

We were joined by Heather Wilkinson and Heather Burczynski with Middle of the Magic Travel. It was great to finally meet them in person. Heather and Heather share my love of everything Disney, and they both eat gluten free.

Columbia Harbour House - Disney's Magic Kingdom

In July, my daughters and I had lunch at Columbia Harbour House, one of our favorite quick service restaurants at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

I love that I can mobile order my food in the My Disney Experience app, and skip the long lines at the restaurant.

Disneyland - Fall 2019

The last weekend in September, we decided to take a short trip to Disneyland. None of the Disneyland Resort Hotels had availability, so we booked a room at the SpringHill Suites across the street from Disney California Adventure. We did not make advance dining reservations for this trip, choosing instead to eat at quick service restaurants.

We bought 3-day park hopper tickets from Undercover Tourist, because I knew we would want to go in the theme parks when we arrived Friday night. On Saturday, the only full day we spent at the theme parks, we added MaxPass in the Disneyland app when we arrived at the park. It is an extra charge, but it is so worth it. Every time we have used MaxPass, including our last Christmas Break trip, we were able to get 8 to 10 fastpasses per day, and avoid waiting in long lines.

Nomad Lounge - Disney's Animal Kingdom

This summer, we had lunch at Nomad Lounge  in Disney's Animal Kingdom four times during our trips to Disney World in June and July.

Nomad Lounge serves small plates and drinks from around the world. It is located next to Tiffins, right outside of Pandora. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, and you don't need to worry about advance dining reservations, because Nomad Lounge only accepts walk-ins.
