All right, all, I’ve been writing this blog every day for nearly three years now, and there are still a few Disney Food items on my bucket list if you can believe it!
They always say that if you share your goals and resolutions with your friends you’re more likely to stick with them, so I’m sharing them with you guys in the hope that you’ll keep me accountable to accomplish these!
And if you have your own Disney Food resolutions or bucket list items, let me know in the comments section below! I’d love to hear what you guys want to see/do/eat in the parks and resorts!
Here we go!
Resolution 1: Dine at the New Disney Restaurants
Oh my GOODNESS, you guys, there are SO many restaurants opening this year! In Disney World, there are Be Our Guest Restaurant and Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland, and the new Landscapes Cafe at the Art of Animation Resort.
In Disneyland, we’ve got Flo’s V-8 Cafe (“Eat here and get gas!”), the Cozy Cone Motel, and Fillmore’s Taste-In in Cars Land; the new Carthay Circle Theater Restaurant; and the Jolly Holiday Bakery and the updated indoor Carnation Cafe.
And — while I’m pretty sure it’s (to quote Deborah Gibson) “only in my dreams” to try them — there are the new restaurants on the Disney Fantasy cruise ship and the restaurants at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Hawaii!
Resolution 2: Go to Mickey’s Backyard BBQ
I admit it — I have never been to this fun adventure-in-a-meal called Mickey’s Backyard BBQ! Since it’s only available on select nights through much of the year, and because it takes a while to get there (the pavilion is located at Fort Wilderness in Walt Disney World), I haven’t made it.
Hopefully I’ll be able to head over sometime in 2012 to partake in some barbecue, eat a few Mickey bars, and rub elbows with the Disney fur character elite!
Resolution 3: Order a Custom Cake
Even though we have a fun gallery of custom cakes ordered by our readers, AND we have a tip top Disney Cake Ordering FAQ here on the Disney Food Blog, I still haven’t celebrated with a custom cake myself!
I have a few ideas of things I should celebrate in 2012…now I just have to choose the flavors! Something tells me there will be cream cheese frosting involved…
Resolution 4: Eat at the Flying Fish Chef’s Counter
You know I love Flying Fish Cafe, and I’ve heard nothing but awesomeness about the new(ish) Flying Fish Chef’s Counter meal. After my incredible experiences at the Napa Rose Chef’s Counter and the Victoria and Albert’s Chef’s Table this year (review coming SOON!), I can’t wait to snag a seat at Chef Tim Keating’s counter at the Flying Fish.
Any suggestions for requests??
Resolution 5: Eat a Turkey Leg
While many of you will want to take away my Disney Food Blogger card for admitting this, I think it’s important to be up front and forthright with you at this point in our relationship. I’ve never eaten a turkey leg. Well, not one of my own, anyway. And I think it’s time. Don’t you?
I hope you can help me stick to my Disney Food Resolutions this year, everyone!! How can I help you stick to yours? Let me know what you hope to cross off of your Disney Food bucket list this year in the comments section below!
