And even though we’re still awaiting major details, like booking dates and a full list of events, there’s plenty that we can get started on in the way of planning.

News: Concept Art Released for Wine Bar George Coming to Disney Springs

Wine Bar George has been a long time coming.

Rumors started swirling in late 2015 around a new wine bar headed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes coming to Disney Springs. The rumor was officially confirmed at the Party for the Senses (an Epcot Food and Wine Festival Special Event) last fall.

Slated for a late 2017 opening, groundbreaking took place in December of 2016, and the walls surrounding the construction site (located just across the way from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and next to Raglan Road’s Hole in the Wall Bar) were covered with a display of the concept art for the space’s exterior.

Review: Smokey Bones (Bourbon-n-Bacon) Chocolate Shake at Trilo-Bites in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Y’all already know about the new grown-up drinks being served up in Pandora at the Pongu Pongu lounge, but that’s not the only place you can get something new and boozy in the Animal Kingdom! Nosiree!

If you happen to find yourself on the other side of the park in the land of cartoonish dinosaurs, stroll up to the window of Trilo-Bites and take a gander at their (changing-with-some-frequency) little menu.

Guest Review: “Eat This, Not That” in Disney World’s Pandora — The World of Avatar

For the past weeks we’ve been getting some amazing reports, reviews, and photos from dozens of DFB readers who have been to Pandora during cast previews, eaten multiple menu items, and sent us their thoughts!

While we here at DFB haven’t been to Pandora, yet, we’ve compiled the reviews of our readers into an Eat This Not That guide for the World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom that I hope will help out those of us who are headed to Pandora later this month! We always love when the DFB community can help each other out, and we think this is a great example of one of those times!

For those who aren’t sure what we’re talking about, Pandora — The World of Avatar, is a new land opening later this month in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Floating mountains in Pandora!

Cast member previews are running right now, and we’re super excited to see the menu items from Satu’li Canteen (the land’s new quick-service location) as they’re served (and not a la Disney promotional pics). Let’s take a look! And stay tuned at the bottom of this post for our Eat This, Not That Recommendation List!
