Disney Food News Pin Board


In order to make sure you hear everything we hear, I created this Disney Food News Pinboard to capture the bits and pieces of information we receive through the grapevine.

I’m so grateful for all of the tidbits of info that I hear from readers and friends — I rely on you guys to be my eyes and ears for the DFB since I’m in Texas. If you hear a piece of Disney Food News, please pass it along to us via twitter, facebook, or email so that we can post it either on the Blog or on the Pinboard!

Feel free to send photos if you get a glance of a new menu, a new food item, another new addition to a Disney park or resort. And don’t forget to let me know how to credit you (name, web link, etc.).
