We already knew that this restaurant will offer an immersive dining experience among the stars which will offer guests views “from high above Earth.” And that it will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group (known also in Epcot for Via Napoli and Tutto Italia). Additionally, it was known that the restaurant would be adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction.

But where, exactly? Well, now we know! [Read more…]

Is Disney World’s Beaches and Cream Still Worth The Reservation?

We often hear from readers who want to know if DFB’s favorites of yore have still got IT.

You know what we mean: do they still have the mojo that keeps guests coming back year after year. For some restaurants at Walt Disney World, it’s killer food and a seasonal, ever-changing menu that draws in a crowd. For others, it’s an atmosphere that can’t be beat — like ‘Ohana‘s warm family feel or Sanaa‘s animal friends right outside the window.

For Beaches & Cream, it’s a sense of nostalgia paired with comforting eats that have been consistently good since the soda shop opened its doors almost thirty years ago. (Let’s just table that thirty years ago bit because there’s no way we’re that old…)

Beaches & Cream is tucked in between the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts on an outdoor walkway adjacent to Stormalong Bay — the fabulous pool shared by the resorts. That means Beaches and Cream is in the Epcot Resort Area (and just a stone’s throw from the International Gateway that serves as an entrance to Epcot’s World Showcase). This convenient location means that even guests not staying at the Resorts will make the short trip to this casual table service location for a bite to eat.

But you (and I!) wanted to know: does Beaches & Cream still have IT?

Epcot's Spaceship Earth

Epcot’s Spaceship Earth

Perhaps you’ve already chosen how you’d like to use your three allotted FastPasses in Epcot as you plan your next Disney World visit. But there are several attractions outside of the major headliners like Soarin’ Around the World, Frozen Ever After, and Test Track. Of course, when you’re in Epcot, you can definitely spend a lot of time outside of attractions EATING in this food lover’s theme park, but you might even want to fit a few more rides in while you’re at it ;) . And we’re going to help you do exactly that in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]

Review: Teppan Edo in Disney World’s Epcot

Teppan Edo… it’s been a while, my friend!

Too long, I might say. I tend to not visit Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion as often as other spots around Epcot’s World Showcase — not because I haven’t enjoyed it in the past (because I have). This is due to the fact that as Epcot’s resident hibachi grill, the menu and experience doesn’t tend to change very much. So from a reviewer’s perspective, there isn’t a hugely revised menu or anything to keep readers posted on.

But from a Disney fan perspective (and Epcot fan. And Japan Pavilion fan. And FOOD fan!), I was rather keen on making a new Advance Dining Reservation here. And when @DininginDisney and her family happened to be going, I was excited to tag along!

So, let’s see how this recent visit went!
