Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train – The Best Attraction EVER!


Now I know you are all thinking I’m whackadoo (most of you probably did already!) but seriously, Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train is the best attraction EVER!  Stay with me here and once you watch the video, you will be convinced as well.

You probably know Heimlich best as the chubby, lovable, German caterpillar from A Bug’s Life.  He loves to eat (sweets in particular), dance and is just an overall jolly character.  He’s always been one of my favorites!

So the fact that he has his own ride is wonderful and it was one of my must do’s for my recent trip to Disneyland.  Look how cute he is with the candy corn!



Yes, I know it’s a kid’s ride, but it’s great for adults too!!  Being on this slow moving chew chew train will only make you smile.  Look at that GIANT watermelon you get to chew through…who wouldn’t want to eat that?!?

Not convinced?  Take a ride for yourself…try not to laugh…I dare you!

Now didn’t that just make you smile from ear to ear??  And if the attraction didn’t make you laugh, you had to get a chuckle out of Amanda‘s hysterics….

What attraction makes you smile and laugh?

Friday Feast: New Lunch Menu at the Green Cabin Room

I’ve spent the past week at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort having what was probably the best vacation I’ve ever been on.  It was our 2nd annual Disney Beach House vacation full of fun adventures, some sun, great friends, laughs and good food.  That’s what life is all about right?


One of my favorite places to eat while at the resort is The Green Cabin Room.  The food is pretty good, but it’s this view that makes it one of my favorite locations. Stunning…


We had eaten there on our last visit (read my review here) and gotten a few appetizers to share with the group.  My friend Rick had mentioned that they recently changed the menu, so B and I decided to check it out for lunch.  Here’s the new menu:



The draft beer selection is pretty limited there with Miller Light and Yuengling being the only two options.  I went with the Yuengling and a glass of water.  Check out the paper straws they use here, just like the ones at Animal Kingdom.  Conservation is huge at this resort and I like that!


I had been craving a turkey club sandwich that day and was beside myself with excitement when I saw it on the menu.  YES PLEASE!  B decided to go with the Fish & Chips which I was happy about because that would’ve been my next choice.  I opted for the House-made Kettle Chips with my sandwich and also ate B’s Crunchy Slaw…win-win.



That is one good Turkey Club!!  I highly recommend it and I even went back the next day for another one! B liked his Fish & Chips, but thought the breading was too thick.  It was actually still a bit raw in some parts, but the fish was cooked through and tasted great.

I really like the changes they made to the menu, but the one thing I was disappointed they took off were the Crispy Pork Wings.  I was looking forward to trying those.  No matter what the menu is, I will always eat there or at least have a cocktail when I’m at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.

Have you eaten at The Green Cabin Room?   What do you think?
