This week, we shared with you lots of fun news — from a new refillable mug design at the Disney World Resorts to supersized slushies in Epcot’s France to the face that we get another WHOLE WEEK to enjoy the Epcot Food and Wine Festival this year. But there’s a whole lot more going on in Disney World that we still need to tell you about!
We’re happy to welcome you on another trip around the World with us to see what’s new!
We spied all sorts of happenings around World Showcase! Things are already changing up a bit at Spice Road Table, with a few small changes to the menu.
The Salted Cod Croquettes are still available as part of the Mogador Sampler; however, they’ve been replaced on the individual tapas menu by Mix Grill Skewers: “Beef and Chicken with Garlic and Fresh Herbs.”
Italy’s Tutto Gusto is featuring a few new “Gusto Specialties”: Meatballs Parmigiana, Meatball Sliders, Ravioli di Ricotta, and Tuscan Pork Ribs.
Over in Germany, you can now pick up some official Werther’s Drizzle to take home with you at Karamell-Küche!
Now you can make your very own cookies look like this :
The Promenade Refreshments menu has kept its Meatball Sub, but cookies and glazed nuts have been replaced with hot dogs and soft-serve ice cream.
But stay tuned… things may change at Promenade Refreshments again soon, because we’re seeing these happy signs cropping up all over Epcot!
Let this be a hopeful reminder that spring is, indeed, on the way – the Flower & Garden Festival is nearly upon us. And we can’t wait to check out this year’s Outdoor Kitchens! See the full menus for this year’s Flower and Garden Festival here!
Now, I can never resist stopping by Mouse Gears when I’m in Future World. I enjoy checking out all the merchandise (especially kitchenware!), and these new Park Icon mugs definitely caught my eye.
But I gotta say… this one threw me. Under the file of, “Ummm… Huh? Whaaa..? Oooookay…” are these Poison Candy Apple EARS.
Yep – here’s the original.
Animal Kingdom Lodge
And here’s one outside of the Parks. The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge has had a few menus changes as well. Oak-Smoked Rotisserie Chicken, a Hand-Carved Corn Beef Sandwich, and the Mara BLT Hot Dog have replaced the Caesar Salad with Chicken, Hand-Carved Turkey Sandwich, and the African Chili-Cheese Hot Dog.
But as much as I love the food, my current favorite thing at Animal Kingdom Lodge is seeing what the baby zebras and their parents are up to at Kidani Village!
That’s it for this round! Until next time, Eat and Be Happy!
