#TBT I'm guessing this was around 1985? I think that's Sleepy, it must have been quite a feat for him to climb up on that table!

Aww! What a cute photo 😊😊  - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 5:21PM

#NEWS I was hoping the rumors were false, but they have closed Paradise Garden Grill. I'm so sad, that was one of my favorite spots to get dinner!

Tagged in: NEWS  
That's a big bummer. Seems like they were making such great changes with dining for awhile, and now they're kinda back-pedaling to mediocre stuff.  The PGG page is still up on the DL website, but I guess people are saying it's been closed for a few days now.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 8:45AM
It does seem like they are back-pedaling.  I was hoping it was a rumor, but I tweeted them and they confirmed it.  I look forward to that Greek salad every trip. - Thumper13  498.7 #447 8:48AM
Darn, that's pretty disappointing.  I wish it had been more visible--I bet people didn't even know it was back there.  That was our favorite spot, though: loved the chicken kabob with tzatziki.  I guess I will just go to Bengal BBQ and bring my own tzatziki, rice and Naan.  πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 8:57AM
That's not a bad idea! - Thumper13  498.7 #447 9:32AM
Huge bummer because that was always one of the better choices, for me - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 10:08AM
I never ate there but it had been on my list of places to try. My husband didn't even know it was  there, I guess we don't walk that way that often.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1182 10:32AM
Bummer! The chicken kabob was a favorite here too. Will be very much missed.  - supertracy  471.9 #470 7:53AM
πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌ hi, supertracy!  Great to see you!  Seems like lots of us loved this place.  πŸ˜© - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 8:19AM
Hi SOS! Good see you! :) - supertracy  471.9 #470 8:43AM
They had the strawberry brownie skewer - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2008.6 #85 4:52PM
I'm not sure I've ever been there.  Strawberry brownie skewers sound delish though!  Where was/is it located? - AngiMouse  104.9 #3565 6:00AM
It was back by Goofy's Sky School--Mediterranean skewers with sauce, brown rice, veggies, and Naan, as well as some good salad options. Really tasty and very different from the regular theme park hamburger/hot dog/Mexican food fare.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 6:35AM
Agreed, Spoonful_O_Sugar. Zomething different and it never felt heavy or like you were eating junkyπŸ˜‚ - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 8:18AM
Yes!  I shared this with my husband for lunch the day before we ran the half marathon a couple years ago and it was just right.  Protein and carbs, but not too heavy-feeling.    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 8:24AM
Sounds like the perfect combo. ::lesigh:: - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 8:29AM
I have never really explored back there much.  I usually end up at the beer stand, then I walk along the way towards the ice cream cart past the swings.  I'm pretty sad that I have missed it. - AngiMouse  104.9 #3565 4:47PM
Sadly, there was never a consistent line there for the Mediterranean food.   - BaseballMickey  7888.0 #11 12:40PM
And that's what matters unfortunately. πŸ™ - secretagentangel  6371.6 #21 4:22PM
That's really to bad. We ate at Boardwalk a Pizza last Sunday and it was very good. Love their salads and pasta. - jacdanfan  12150.2 #6 4:39PM
Will it stay closed or is something in the pipeline? - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 4:45PM
jacdanfan bit sure if the pizza place is included in this.  - secretagentangel  6371.6 #21 5:19PM

#WDW Buzz Lightyear to the rescue at Epcot for flower and garden. We rode Mission space (the easy side) and my husband and son decided to try the harder side. Let's hope they don't have to use the barf bags in the rideπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±

#WDW One of the things I was looking forward to on our trip was having lunch with an imagineer. My mini wants to be an architect for Disney. For the bargain basement price of 70.00 per person you can have lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby with an imagineer. We were welcomed with engraved name tags and seated in a private room with personalized menus. The imagineer dines with you (max 10 gue  More...

What a wonderful experience!! - misschurro...  7241.2 #14 8:18AM
It was so neat- unfortunately there were a couple of teenagers with helicopter parents who were more interested in interrogating the imagineer about which college to go to and how to apply, and seemed to think it was a job interview to put on college applicationsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Other than that, it was great and we learned so much, she was great at getting the conversation back on track.  My son loved it, and i was such a proud mama because they discourage kids under 14, but he was proper and professional and acted like a little adult.  So proud! - Thumper13  498.7 #447 8:34AM
