Portobello officially not returning at Disney Springs, Chef Tony Mantuano restaurant replacing

The Portobello restaurant at Disney Springs closed last week for what was announced to be a half year’s refurbishment and remodel. It was announced to be coming back with a newly redesigned menu featuring family-style offerings and new Italian craft beers and wines.

Well, as I suspected, Portobello Country Italian Trattoria will not be returning to Disney Springs.  Just like Fulton’s Crab House, the restaurant will be undergoing a full make-over and be coming back with a brand new name, menu, and from the looks of it, will look a Continue reading “Portobello officially not returning at Disney Springs, Chef Tony Mantuano restaurant replacing”

According to WDWNT, this new resort would actually be a two night immersive experience and be all inclusive, costing about $900-$1000 per guest.  It sounds a bit steep when you compare to to a standard hotel room, however, it would be so much more.

Just in case you aren’t familiar with Club 33, it is a unique (and pricey) membership club located inside the New Orleans land of Disneyland.  It was founded by Walt Disney himself so that he had a place to host VIP guests and corporate sponsors.  Membership has grown over the years, and currently there is about a 14 year wait list to join.  But it’s not cheap! To be a Continue reading “BREAKING: Club 33 coming to all four WDW parks!”
