One of our favorite fall food and wine events is the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic.

The event takes place one weekend during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. This year, you can enjoy this incredible dine around on Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28!

The hallmark of the Food and Wine Classic is the Causeway Event. The grand tasting includes food and wine booths set up along the resort’s picturesque promenade. Guests can visit tents from the resort’s 17 restaurants. In addition, beverage booths serve a dizzying array of beer and wine from around the world! (See the full list of menus here.)

Must-Eat Snacks at The Mara in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (Now Including JUNGLE JUICE SLUSH!)

Boy, do I have a fun list for you today!

We’re taking on a few Must-Eat Snacks at The Mara in Animal Kingdom Lodge! This counter service restaurant serves up several classic dishes as you might expect (like Chicken Breast Nuggets and Burgers). But in keeping with the wonderfully immersive theming of the Lodge, you’ll also find unique African-inspired dishes like the tasty African Potjie Stew and Soups of the Day (I love it when the Coconut Curry Chicken Soup comes up on the rotation!).

Even in addition to some of those items, though, there are still a few nearly-unique-to-Mara finds (you’ll see what I mean by that soon) that aren’t necessarily African-inspired, but equally as tasty. And those land on our Mara Must-Eat Snacks list! Plus, they are all available for a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan!

So let’s start with with a VERY special item that just made its Mara debut!

Frozen Jungle Juice

Oh, joy!! We feared we’d lost the Jungle Juice Slushy for good when it disappeared from the menu at Animal Kingdom’s Mahindi, but a few weeks ago it made a surprise return. Better yet, it’s now available in TWO spots, since it’s at The Mara now, too!

The Mara Frozen Beverages

The Mara Frozen Beverages

Even though it’s called the Jungle Juice Frozen Beverage, it’s still that same awesome mix of Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava juices that is also known as POG Juice or Liliko’i Juice for breakfast in the Polynesian’s ‘Ohana and Kona Cafe.

Roaring Fork has been a longtime favorite for guests staying at Wilderness Lodge — or even folks who stay elsewhere and trek over to take advantage of the counter service spot’s specialties.

Unfortunately, favorites like Mickey Waffles with Specialty Toppings are no longer available. Still, we found plenty to love on the menu reboot, both for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. [Read more…]
