Cheers to the New Year! Disney Drinks to Try in 2018

We’re still newly into 2018! And tradition dictates that we ring in the New Year with some bubbly. While that’s never a bad choice when the clock strike midnight, I’ve got some ideas for ways you can celebrate with a drink in Walt Disney World no matter what time of year your visit falls in 2018!

These are some of the sips we most enjoyed over the past year… and can’t wait to enjoy again in 2018!

Wine Slushies at Amorette’s Patisserie

Did you think Amorette’s Patisserie showcased nothing more than artful cakes and pastries? Then think again. Because this Disney Springs sweet spot is home to the vino that went VIRAL in 2017: Wine Slushies!

Sneak Peek: FULL MENUS Now Available for Epcot Festival of the Arts!

We’re just DAYS AWAY from the very first Epcot Festival of the Arts! And today we have FULL BOOTH MENUS for you! (And, yes. They totally have Pop Tarts on the menu??!??!?!)

festival-of-the-arts-edited

We’re getting ready for this brand new Festival to kick off Friday, January 13th. This celebration of the arts — focusing on Visual, Culinary, and Performing Arts — will run Fridays through Mondays for six weekends, ending on February 20th.

We’ve already learned about the event’s Interactive Workshops where participants will be able to channel their own inner artists, while the Disney on Broadway Concert Series will offer guests the chance to enjoy hearing Broadway talent perform classic Disney songs. (Find out about how you can book a Dining Package for the Concert Series here!)

And now, as the debut rapidly approaches, we’re taking a look at the aspect we at the DFB are most interested in: Food Studios (otherwise known as Booths) will be found around World Showcase, both along the Promenade and tucked near a few Pavilions.

While you can link to our main Epcot Festival of the Arts page here to see the full menus for all seven of the Food Studios, we thought we’d show you a few of the items we’re most excited to try, so you can start making your own list, too!

Click here to see FULL MENUS for each Epcot Festival of the Arts booth!!

E=AT² will feature an array of “deconstructed” items, from a Reuben and a Deconstructed Breakfast to a BLT with crispy pork belly, tomato jam, and soft poached egg.

Masterpiece Kitchen

Look for Masterpiece Kitchen to be located near the Canada Pavilion — a fitting location for the Wild Mushroom Risotto with aged parmesan, truffle shavings, and zinfandel reduction (given the popularity of the Mushroom Risotto served with the Filet Mignon at Canada’s Le Cellier). [Read more…]

The Culinary Arts will be represented at the event’s Food Studios (aka booths), offering “creations that look almost too good to eat, but you won’t be able to resist.” [Read more…]
