***** (5 stars)

This spacious restaurant is doing a great job with breakfast. I really liked by Breakfast tac, which was essentially an open fast breakfast burrito. Nice crispy bacon and a delicious smoke salsa to accompany it.

The pancake side was also excellent, with a slightly crisp edge, and ample maple syrup and butter.

You order at a counter and they bring the food to the table.

A big, airy place with friendly service.

This place is hilarious! It's all just one huge joke at the level of thirteen year old humor, and it's wonderful. The fact that every employee is so engaging and in on the joke makes it all the more fun. There's good stuff to eat, funny photo opportunities, a large gift shop, children's play area, and of course the opportunity to bring friends gifts that have passed through Uranus!

Beautiful park, with great theming and landscaping. Lines are long for popular attractions. We waited 2-1/2 hours for Mystic River Falls, and others waited much longer. That said, it was a great ride.

The Flooded Mine is a good ride with a shorter wait.

The food was less than stellar, although the cinnamon rolls were good.

This was a great distillery tour, with a great guide, Kim.

We did the Angel's Share Tasting tour, which ended with a very educational opportunity to sample five different products, and learn about the variations in the way they were made.

Highly recommended for its educational value. And it was tasty.

*** (3 stars)

This is a nice but non-traditional tiki bar. There’s no particular tiki related sub-theme, but there are some games and karaoke, and a spacious decor.

The menu is also atypical, with original drinks that often emphasize tequila. The limited food menu consists mainly of sliders served on Hawaiian buns.

***** (5 stars)

I tend to suspect a restaurant in the heart of a tacky tourist district can't be good, but Sakura is the exception. It bills itself as Asian Fusion, but there is really not fusion going on, it's simply a collection of Asian foods from many countries, including Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, and China.

The sushi selections are extensive and appear fresh, but I concentrated on the Vietnamese items, and they were among the best I've had, including many of the restaurants in Orlando's Vietnamese district.

The summer rolls are delightfully fresh and cold, and sever with a tasty
peanut and chili sauce.

The Bun Saigon is a classic Veitnamese vermicelli bowl with loads of basil, grilled pork, and fresh veggies, and served with a bowl of fish sauce. Ask for Sriracha and Hoisin to elevate it to sublime. My server also gave me the tip to add my leftover peanut sauce from the summer rolls, and that was indeed a great idea!

The interior decor is pleasant, with a variety of Asian decor. Service was very friendly and efficient.
