Brunch at Tortilla Jo’s!

By Erin

What could be better than brunch? Having brunch at the Happiest Place on earth, or right next to it at Downtown Disney, then getting to go play at Disneyland afterwards! Tortilla Jo’s is the place to be when visiting Downtown Disney. Even if you don’t have an annual pass or ticket to go inside the parks to experience that magic, you can still have plenty of fun at the Downtown Disney District which has an abundance of incredible shops and restaurants. Thanks to Gigasavvy’s Social Club, I got to experience Downtown Disney’s Tortilla Jo’s weekend brunch, complete with bottomless mimosas and their famous margaritas. It sounded like the perfect start to the weekend to me! 🙂

Tortilla Jos Entrance

Celebrating the culinary heritage of Mexico, Tortilla Jo’s boasts south-of-the-border Mexican cuisine, known for their delicious tableside guacamole, and tequila libations which all promote the authenticity of their open kitchen restaurant. A gorgeous sweeping view of the promenade can be seen from the outdoor patio and balcony. The inside cantina is home to over 100 types of tequila that give your margarita an unforgettable flavor, be sure to try the mango margarita! The vibrant spirit and modern pueblo atmosphere make dining at Tortilla Jo’s an experience not to be missed. Don’t forget your Mickey or Minnie ears and take a look at that view! 😉


After getting a chance to enjoy the view, have a mimosa, and look over the brunch menu, we enjoyed our choice of salsa: red mild, chipotle or green and chips. I had the red salsa, and it was amazing, just look at it! So fresh and the flavor was just right. Our table went through many bowls of this delicious salsa.


To balance out the salty flavors from the chips and salsa, next up we had the fresh fruit plate. All entrees on the brunch menu at Tortilla Jo’s come with fresh fruit! I could eat fruit all day, even if it’s as beautifully displayed as it is here! Raspberries, blackberries, pineapple, mango, blueberries, melon, strawberries and more, I could snack on this all day.


Now for the BIG decision we had to make at our table. What kind of Margarita to get? Peach? Mango? Strawberry? Cadillac? It all sounded so good, but it came down to two different favorites at our table. Peach and Mango. Now just to note, only one of those below is mine! I did not have all of those. My choice? The Mango. It had an interesting creamy feel to it, smooth without having any pulp. It had plenty of tequila in it, but not to the point that it was too strong that you could not enjoy it. I just love the glasses they were served in too. So pretty! Of course we were also served the bottomless mimosas if we wanted more of those, but these Mango Margaritas were what I ended up sticking with they were that good.


The first entree item that we sampled, was the Huevos Rancheros! A delicious combination of corn tortillas, refried beans, two sunny side up eggs, salsa ranchera, cotija cheese, and papas a la Mexicana. This dish created the perfect blend of spice and seasoning to compliment the cheeses and eggs. This one was my favorite savory dish of the day.

ZOOTOPIA – OFFICER HOPPS -- Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) believes anyone can be anything. Being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't easy, but Hopps is determined to prove herself. Featuring score by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino, and an all-new original song, "Try Everything," performed by Grammy® winner Shakira, Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Zootopia" opens in U.S. theaters on March 4, 2016. ©2015 Disney.

Zootopia is running wild across theaters nationwide now, but to truly experience this film in all its glory and and in true animal fashion, you must see (hear and feel) the movie at a Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime!  Movie goers both young and old will love Zootopia as Walt Disney Animation’s 55th animated film takes us back to Disney Animations renaissance of great talking animal films and into an all new animal centered world. I cannot think of a better way to experience this than by visiting a state-of-the-art Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime!


Yesterday I was able to experience this for myself with family and friends, and now we all cannot imagine seeing a movie any other way. Once you go Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime, you won’t want to go back to seeing movies any other way! Seeing Disney’s new movie Zootopia at Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime at the AMC Century City 15 Theater provided the ultimate movie going experience!

I love walking in and seeing all of these familiar faces! 🙂

Check out the Video Wall!

As we went to enter the theater that Zootopia was showing in, we got to enjoy a very special interactive Zootopia video wall! Here are some of the fun scenes you can find on this video wall!

Next Level Recliner Technology!

They really do take comfort to the next level with these spacious, high-power, reserved recliners that pulsate with the action! I absolutely love that you can reserve your seats! No more worrying about it you’ll be able to all sit together, or if you will be closer to the movie screen than you like as you can reserve your seats as it is assigned seating!

Dolby Cinema AMC Prime CC

The plush, reclining seats are huge and very comfortable! I have never been so comfortable at a theater! Each seat can be controlled easily to the position that makes you most comfortable and the armrests can also fold all the way up if you wish. With just a push of a button the foot rest and recline adjusts to your desired position. You can have your feet up comfortably for the entire movie and lean back without bothering anyone in front of or behind you. The amount of space in each row is amazing, there is even a glass partition in between rows, leaving plenty of room to move around, relax and enjoy the show!

Zootopia is out in theaters everywhere today! In the land of Zootopia, anyone can be anything and Walt Disney Animation Studios made sure that was true for the Hollywood premiere of Zootopia the other week too. Held at the historic El Capitan Theatre, the red carpet was transformed into a giant public transportation metro station (The Zootopia Transit Authority) and the destination was the city of Zootopia that we were now residents of. You truly could be anything you wanted, even a bunny or a fox! 😉 Which stop do you want to get off at?

Zootopia Transit

As we made our way to board the Zootopia Transit Authority and across the red carpet, this is what we were greeted with. Although there was a tent to protect us from the rain, boy that red carpet was a soggy wet mess, but that just made for an even more wild adventure. Haha.

Here I am on my way to the Zootopia Premiere! Next Stop? The ELK Capitan Theater!
