2. Where can I find a good beer in Disney World?

Craft beers are becoming more widely available at Disney’s bars, lounges, and restaurants. Just a few of our favorites include featured craft beers in Epcot’s Italy pavilion, The Wave at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Raglan Road Pub in Downtown Disney. Beer is made on-premise at Big River Grill and Brewing Works on Disney’s Boardwalk.

Of course, don’t forget to visit Rose and Crown Pub in Epcot for a great British beer list!

If you just need a six-pack for your hotel room fridge, your Disney World resort store will sell them (though they may be outrageously priced).

To save a few bucks, venture to one of the two Hess Stations on Walt Disney World property. One is across from the Boardwalk Resort; the other is across from Downtown Disney and is within easy walking distance.

The celebration of our new e-Book — The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining — continues! Let’s take a look at a fantastic kid event that’s highlighted as part of the Special Dining Events for Kids section of the book!

At the Wonderland Tea Party, kids (4-10) will enjoy tea (okay, it’s just apple juice ;-)), stories, arts & crafts, games, and a make-your-own cupcake. Of course, some special Wonderland friends will stop by too. Look for Alice and the Mad Hatter. Although characters are subject to change, they seem to appear most frequently.

Check the schedule as it seems to change. Current times are Monday through Friday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. You’ll find the tea party in the Victorian splendor of the Grand Floridian’s 1900 Park Fare Restaurant. Parents will receive photos of their child enjoying the festivities on a PhotoPass card. To book your child at this wonderful event, call 407-WDW-DINE 90 days in advance. Space is very limited and the current price is $42.60.

During your blissful hour of quiet, enjoy a lunch at the Grand Floridian Cafe, shopping or a spa treatment!
