First Look and Review: BaseLine Tap House Opens in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Welcome to the new Grand Avenue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

This is where you’ll find BaseLine Tap House — the new lounge (as in, just opened TODAY!) located in what was formerly known as The Writer’s Stop. In fact, the Grand Avenue area is a portion of the park that once celebrated the architecture and culture of New York City and San Francisco — by way of posing as movie sets for both — when it was known as the Streets of America.

Grand Avenue, however, is a nod to Los Angeles, California. And BaseLine Tap House plays its part in the scene by offering California beers, cider and wine, along with specialty cocktails and a small bites menu.

So, as the song goes… California, here we come!

Review: Territory Lounge in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

The landscape sure has changed at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

With this summer’s opening of the Disney Vacation Club Copper Creek Villas and Cabins, it was anticipated that more and elevated dining options would be needed at the already popular Resort. Hence the refurbishment of Roaring Fork as well as the addition of Geyser Point Bar & Grill.

And honestly, Geyser Point really is a terrific new spot. But today I’m taking you back to where it all started (in regards to great lounges at Wilderness Lodge): Territory Lounge.  I don’t care how many terrific enhancements they make to the Lodge. This spot will continue to rank among the best lounges in Walt Disney World, in my opinion.

They serve great drinks (with lots of Canadian beer options), but even better than the drinks is the upscale pub grub with old favorites served up in new ways, and less familiar dishes heavily inspired by the Pacific Northwest. [Read more…]

We LOVE Epcot – after all it is home to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival (our favorite Festival). But the truth is, I’ve been an Epcot fan since I was 7 years old. It’s always always been my favorite park.

Dos (and a Few Don’ts) for the Epcot Food and Wine Festival

We wait all year for the start of it. Yep — the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is underway!

If you haven’t been, be sure to put the event on your Disney Bucket List. At this time of year, Epcot is transformed into a food lover’s paradise. With Festival Marketplace Booths throughout both Future World and World Showcase, the opportunity to Eat Your Way Around the World(s) is even more exciting!

But then there are also so many events to attend. From free options like book signings and Back to Basics Seminars, to Low Cost Seminars and Demonstrations, there are lots of less expensive options.

But there are also some choices if you’d like to splurge a little. Party for the Senses draws big crowds every year, as do pairing events and signature dining options at restaurants throughout the resort.

Booths Are Going Up!

Booths Are Going Up! It’s Almost Time!
