Of course, that also means that the land’s main restaurant, Satu’li Canteen, and drink station, Pongu Pongu, will open on May 27th as well. And today, we have new details regarding these upcoming dining and drinking experiences! [Read more…]
It’s time! As we bid “So long!” to the Inaugural Epcot Festival of the Arts, we welcome one of our favorite events of Spring — the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! And I can’t think of a better way to explore the Festival than with a brand new DFB Video!
The festival kicks off this Wednesday, March 1! So today, we’re sharing with you a preview of all the new can’t miss attractions — and dishes! [Read more…]
The Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room in the World Showcase at Disney World’s Epcot is an authentic English pub dropped into sunny central Florida. And we love it. Like “can-we-move-in?” love it.
For years, Rose and Crown has earned a reputation as a classic World Showcase spot. Diners satisfy their need for English comfort food like fish and chips and cottage pie while enjoying some of the best pints found in the Parks.
But many visitors to Epcot don’t realize that the no-reservations-needed pub here has an incredible (though small) food menu and atmosphere! Plus — Carl the Bartender!
We know, we know. You want in.
Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room gets high marks from diners for the restaurant’s authenticity, and it all starts with the curb appeal.
In fact, Rose and Crown features architecture from three different centuries on its exterior, which is in keeping with the period architecture found throughout the United Kingdom pavilion.
There’s a new drink in the World, and you have got to check it out!
The Wave…of American Flavors
But to find it, there’s only one place you can go, and that’s Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Just head to the Lounge at The Wave… of American Flavors (or Top of the World in Bay Lake Tower), and that’s where you can order up the The Seven Seas Lagoon.
Before we dive in, we’ve got to note how fun it is to see another Resort-specific cocktail on a Disney lounge menu. With the rare exception of specialty spots like AbracadaBar and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, you can go from one Resort Bar to the next and not see much difference in the offerings. But here and there, you’ll find beverages themed to their Resort. The New Orleans-inspired cocktails at Port Orleans’ River Roost, the classic cocktails at the BoardWalk’s Belle Vue Lounge, and the specialty drinks at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Victoria Falls come to mind. And we always think it’s a thing to celebrate when they come along.
There’s much more to say, though, about The Seven Seas Lagoon. Clearly, its name is inspired by the Contemporary’s location as one of the Resorts surrounding the Seven Seas Lagoon.
Or maaaaybe it gets its name from the fact that this drink is the size of an ACTUAL LAGOON. [Read more…]
OK, where my Disney World veterans at?!? This one is for you guys — my compadres who have known and loved Disney for decades…and who know exactly what I’m talking about when I mention…“BEVERLY.”
You either love it…or you REALLY, REALLY HATE IT! That’s the dealio when it comes to Beverly, a carbonated drink popular in Italy (or so they say) made by the Coca-Cola company. Having their friends and family try the super-bitter Beverly at Epcot’s Club Cool has been a sneaky trick that long-time Disney World fans have played for years.
But now? Poor Beverly is getting her own!
‘Tis the season for fun and festive cocktails and some of our favorite cocktails come from Cocktails by Cody! We found this mixology master a few years ago and we instantly fell in LOVE with his fun Disney-themed cocktails inspired by Disney Princesses, Disney Villains, and more!
And now we have some exciting news to share – Cody has published his first recipe book – Fairy Tale Cocktails – so you can make all these amazing drinks at home!
In October, we shared photos of new construction walls popping up just beside Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion.
And we were SUPER jazzed, because that meant we were finally able to speculate about a new outdoor bar to replace the stand that once provided tasty Margaritas to thirsty passersby on their way around World Showcase. [Read more…]
Happy New Year, DFB Friends!
Let’s face it: 2016 handed us some real bummers. But there were some good things that happened, too. And that’s especially true where Disney Food is concerned.
Today as we gather our noisemakers, funny hats, and bubbly to ring in the New Year, let’s take a few minutes to review some of the biggest Disney Food News Stories of 2016.
Are you with me? Let’s go! [Read more…]
Last month we shared the exciting news that Wine Bar George was confirmed for Disney Springs, and a while back a groundbreaking was held for the new wine bar.
Wine Bar George will be headed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes — one of only 230 Master Sommeliers in the world — and will be located across from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and next to Raglan Road’s Hole in the Wall.
The 210-seat wine bar will be built to resemble a winemaker’s home estate, and the featured wines will represent established wineries as well as “up-and-coming growing regions and wineries.” Wine Bar George will also serve small plates, with 7-12 items on the menu.
At Wednesday’s groundbreaking the Master Sommelier even took part in the inaugural champagne sabering!
In addition to enjoying wines and small plates, guests at Wine Bar George can also expect special events featuring visits from renowned winemakers.
Wine Bar George is slated to open in the fall of 2017.
Are you looking forward to Wine Bar George? Let us know in the comments.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, four more Magic Kingdom restaurants will begin serving wine and beer starting December 23, 2016.
