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.

Personally speaking, I’m really not. But I’ve always had an appreciation for the teeny works of art. So every now and then I take a look to check them out, which is how I found myself in Disney’s Pin Traders in the Marketplace of Disney Springs (located directly across from Earl of Sandwich).

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!

It’s a lot to plan for! So we’d love to offer you advice on a few Dos and Don’ts for navigating the Epcot Food and Wine Festival like a pro. Consider these pointers as you make plans to attend this year’s event. [Read more…]

Review: Dinner at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

We’re at ‘Ohana!!  And ‘Ohana means FAMILY.

From the moment you enter ‘Ohana, you’re informed (or reminded, for returning guests) of the meaning of the restaurant’s name. This family-friendly spot is perched atop the Great Ceremonial House at the Polynesian Village Resort, and it’s become a must-dine for guests of all ages — including Disney World first timers!

The warmth of the atmosphere at ‘Ohana really makes you feel like you’re part of a massive extended family (where your server is your cousin), and that’s a really good thing.

‘Ohana has two dining experiences. Breakfast features characters with Lilo, Stitch, Pluto, and the Main Mouse himself. Dinner, on the other hand, is not a character meal, but still includes entertainment (which I’ll show you in this post). In either case, meals are all-you-care-to-enjoy. And while I really do love breakfast here, my most recent visit was for dinner.
