The Halloween decorations are up and the 2016 Epcot Food & Wine Festival is ON! It MUST BE FALL in Walt Disney World!
So please join us for a very pumpkin-spiced edition of What’s New ! [Read more…]
It’s no secret that we think Morocco has some of the most intriguing options in Epcot’s World Showcase, so we’re going to take a closer look!
The juice bar outside the Spice Road Table restaurant in the Morocco pavilion has some refreshing options you might be interested in! The bar is basically a walk-up window serving some unique drinks. (They used to have house-made ice cream, but, alas, no longer.) While you wait for your table at Spice Road Table or walk around the World Showcase, stop by the juice bar for a pick-me-up!
Maybe you’ve had some interest in attending one of this year’s Rockin’ Burger Block Parties, but you’re not quite sure what the menu entails. Or perhaps you’ve already booked the first Block Party on September 30th, and are already excited to find out what kind of burgers you’ll be diving into!
Either way, we’ve got some info that may help (and if you need anything further, be sure to check out our review from the Rockin’ Burger Block Party we attended last year).
We’ve got the scoop on six of the seven Burgers that guests will be chomping into at the very first Rockin’ Burger Block Party on September 30th featuring Celebrity Chef Maneet Chuahan, who will be joined by Chefs from various Disney restaurants. (Remember, each of the three parties features a different Chef… AND different burgers!)
Raglan Road will offer a beer-battered burger! This one will be topped with garlic aioli, tomato chutney, and greens.
Here’s a beer battered burger we had at Raglan’s counter service spot — Cookes of Dublin — that we think is the inspiration for the Bash choice.
It’s heeeeere… the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival has officially begun!!
And since the first day of the Festival is my favorite day of the year, I’m here, too, of course! The DFB Team has been hard at work tasting our way around every single Marketplace Booth to let you know the items you absolutely MUST EAT at the Festival this year!
Then meet me right back here to check out our recommendations for the BEST of the FEST!
Layers of thick peanut butter mousse and white chocolate mousse with some sugared peanuts on top make up this dessert at Chew Collective…and it’s my idea of perfection. Super rich and salty-sweet, you will not be disappointed.
It’s a small portion, but the sweetness will knock your socks off.
The 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is just DAYS away and we can’t wait to visit all the Marketplace Booths this year! We’ve already made our list of all the things we have to eat!
The Brazil marketplace is one of my favorites, both for its design and it’s awesome food!
Brazil returned to the Festival in 2013 and we’re so excited to see it back this year! We loved the layered meat pie with yucca mash in 2015.
We’re poppin’ in with a couple of updates for you regarding this summer’s Refillable Popcorn Bucket program in Disney World!
In case you missed the original buzz, Refillable Popcorn Buckets hit the scene in late June. Guests could purchase a souvenir Popcorn Bucket at select Popcorn Carts around Disney World for $10.00 and have it refilled at any Popcorn Cart on property (no matter where the original Bucket was purchased) for $1.50 for the remainder of the day.
The program was originally scheduled to run through September 1st. However, September 1st has come and gone… and the Refillable Popcorn Buckets are still up for grabs! At Magic Kingdom, they’ve even received a spooky little makeover in honor of the arrival of Halloween. [Read more…]
Last year, Walt Disney World introduced an Annual Passholder exclusive gift for guests attending the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. And this year, the offer is back again.
While APs could head home from the Festival with a Port Wine Glass last year, in 2016, they can add an etched glass tumbler to their collection. Special thanks to reader Alex for the heads up about these!
How does this magic come to pass? Here’s the low-down: [Read more…]
The Festival kicks off September 14 and runs through November 14, and this year several new Marketplace Booths are featured in both Future World and World Showcase.
Chocolate lovers are going to LOVE this new marketplace booth! It is the perfect spot to satisfy your sweet tooth!
We highly recommend the Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel! This not-quite-ice-cream dessert is something truly unique — and the perfect treat for a warm Festival day.
This sweet treat actually debuted at the 2015 Festival, and we are crazy happy to see it back for another year. [Read more…]
In case we’ve caught you unaware , the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival begins NEXT! WEEK!
As you’re preparing your list of ALL THE FOOD you want to try at the Marketplace Booths, you may also want to take a gander at some of the new 2016 Food and Wine Festival Merchandise to do some souvenir planning, too!
Why don’t we go ahead and start with a glimpse at the Dooney & Bourke pattern for this year’s three Food & Wine Festival Handbags? [Read more…]
We have a fun treat for you at the China Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase!
Joy of Tea
Let’s face it: Disney World is hot. With the exception of a few weeks out of the year, you’re going to be craving a refreshing drink as a mid-day treat. And Epcot’s Joy of Tea has just the thing for you!
We’re big fans of this snack stop. For such a tiny booth, it has a pretty extensive menu! The egg rolls and curry chicken pockets are tasty little snacks that will hold you over until your next meal while you explore the World Showcase.
And, most importantly, they have a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (including the fan favorite Tipsy Ducks in Love!).
Today, we’ll check out the Bubble Milk Tea!
