BOGO ALERT!! And it’s for Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, y’all!
Here’s how to score a Buy One, Get One Pizza (and by the way, this is good for all participating Blaze locations, not just Disney Springs)!
Unless you live under a rock somewhere, you know that the latest iteration of the Star Wars franchise — The Last Jedi — opens today, and you know the Disney Parks are leaping into the merchandise battle with amazing Star Wars souvenirs. (And we aren’t complaining!)
Our pal Carlye Wisel (find her at CarlyeWisel.com!) hooked us up with some pics of a Captain Phasma Stein that You. Must. Acquire.
It comes with your choice of grapes or pineapple — but while we appreciate some healthy eats from time to time, that’s not really why you’re buying it.
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re sharing one by popular request: we’re talking about the BEST Disney World Restaurants for vegan and vegetarian fare!
We are always thankful to our DFB Readers who send great tips and info from their own Disney dining experiences. But today’s video is especially a group effort, as our vegan and vegetarian friends have shared some of their favorite restaurants and dishes with us. And we, in turn, are sharing them with you in case you (or anyone in your traveling group) follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. There are plenty of options in the parks, but places on our list can be found in the Resorts or Disney Springs, too, ranging from Counter Service to Table Service. And, as a bonus, we’ll talk about some favorite snacks, too! [Read more…]
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a tiki bar full of enchantment, adventure… and crazy popular souvenir glasses!
While many of the specialty cocktails on the menu such as Krakatoa Punch, the Uh-Oa!, and the Polynesian Pearl come in souvenir glasses, the granddaddy of them all is: The Nautilus. And the “glass” is now available in its 2nd edition, according to the @WDWToday Twitter account. [Read more…]
We have some exciting news to share with you today!
The dates have been announced for the 2018 Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic! The 9th annual Food and Wine Classic will be held Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, 2018!
Once again, the Food and Wine Classic will coincide with the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and will include The Causeway and Seminars. The Sunday Bubbles Brunch is planned for Sunday, October 28, 2018!
Want to hear more about the 2018 Food and Wine Classic? Here are some details!
The Causeway is the central attraction at the Food and Wine Classic. Here you’ll find more than 60 tasting stations serving dishes from the resort’s 18 restaurants and lounges, along with more than 30 wineries serving wines from around the world!
Karamell-Küche has become a destination all its own within Epcot’s Germany Pavilion.
And with good reason! Even among the Pavilion’s diverse offerings within Biergarten (a Table Service buffet complete with festive entertainment), Sommerfest (the Counter Service spot with NUDEL GRATINNNNN), and Bier Carts and Hovels, Karamell-Küche focuses on one thing, and one thing only:
From seriously addictive Caramel Corn to Caramel Bacon Squares to the ah-mazing Caramel Pecan Bar (you gotta try it!), it’s hard to take in all the different iterations of caramel treats tucked within the Caramel Kitchen’s bakery case.
And speaking of different iterations… I noticed a change to one of my favorite golden treats on my last visit when I spotted a sign for the Caramel Butter Bar. It was front and center ahead of what looked suspiciously like the old Caramel Covered Shortbread — also previously known as the Chewy Caramel Bar.
I wasn’t super concerned at first because this particular snack has been known by a few different names over the years, but basically remained a dependable combo of thick caramel poured atop and in between layers of buttery shortbread.
I figured I was good to go because the “new” Caramel Butter Bar looks… virtually identical to its predecessor. See? [Read more…]
Disney Springs: So many restaurants! So many seasonal treats! So much… construction.
Let’s see what’s new this week!
The building that was formerly Disney Quest is completely gone, leaving room for the construction of the NBA Experience! Here’s some NBA Experience concept art for those wanting a sneak peek of what’s to come. (I see a “Grill” in our future…)
Update: As of January 2018, mac and cheese has returned! See our note at the end of this post!
Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been a guest go-to for years, and the Strip Steak with Mac and Cheese has — by far — the most fans (yours truly included).
Which is why it pains us to report that the steak has changed. And the Mac and Cheese? It’s disappeared, and has been replaced with… a bed of potatoes. (Whaaaat?!) The new dish is a Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Fingerling Potatoes. [Read more…]
You may recall the debut of the 2016 Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, causing lines for daaaayz of guests hoping to grab the limited edition piece (and causing more of the same when it arrived at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney World shortly thereafter). Well, get ready to face those lines again, my friends… because the 1st Edition Holiday Elephant Tiki Mug will arrive at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland Hotel on November 30th!
Happy Monday! We’re back this week with another DFB Video, and today we’re digging into one of my favorite dishes: Macaroni and Cheese!
Wait… did I say “one”? Scratch that. Because not only are we checking out several of our favorite versions of Disney Mac and Cheese… we’ll also tell you how you can get a list of EACH and EVERY Mac and Cheese in Disney World! Basically, if I see Mac and Cheese on any Disney World menu, I order it so I can let you know where you can find your ideal dish. Does Mac and Cheese topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, AND onion rings appeal to you? How about shrimp-topped mac and cheese? Or are you more of a purist? No matter what, you’re bound to find at least one version (and probably more) that you’ll need to try on your next Disney World trip!
