The diversity of visitors to Walt Disney World knows no bounds — and with those diverse visitors comes an infinite number of dietary preferences and requirements. We hear from loads of readers with different food needs, and we hear you loud and clear! And with 2019 beginning, we know a lot of you are looking to the popular keto diet to help keep your New Year’s Resolutions!
This year is going to be BIG for the Disney Parks. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening at Walt Disney World on August 29 and at Disneyland on May 31. Plus the all-new Skyliner transportation system will begin operating at Walt Disney World in the summer or fall! But that’s not all…
Guests to the Disney Parks on both coasts will get to enjoy lots of new and exciting restaurants! Read on to learn more about what’s opening and where — PLUS when you can expect to be able to visit each spot!
It’s been a busy week in Epcot! We found food updates, construction, completed refurbs, new rides and restaurants, plus more new merch! Join us at Epcot to see what we found!
But first, don’t forget…there’s less than a month left in the Food and Wine Festival — our very favorite thing in Epcot! Be sure to check this year’s festival out before it ends!
There’s always something going on in Epcot — we’ve updated you on the Guardians of the Galaxy Ride and Ratatouille Ride installation as well as Epcot’s Skyliner Station. Today, we’ve got some construction and refurbishment updates from all over the park!
We’ve been keeping you updated on the construction walls that were surrounding the Puffin’s Roost Store attached to the recently re-opened Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion. Well, now those walls are down!
We’re in Epcot checking out what’s new this week! The restaurants are busy adding some seasonal treats as well as fall flavors! Construction is moving forward on a variety of attractions! Let’s take a closer look…
But in the future, it will be home to three Table Service locations, as Disney has announced that a Signature Dining experience “inspired by the natural beauty of Japan” is on the way to the Pavilion!
Teppan Edo… it’s been a while, my friend!
Teppan Edo Restaurant
Too long, I might say. I tend to not visit Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion as often as other spots around Epcot’s World Showcase — not because I haven’t enjoyed it in the past (because I have). This is due to the fact that as Epcot’s resident hibachi grill, the menu and experience doesn’t tend to change very much. So from a reviewer’s perspective, there isn’t a hugely revised menu or anything to keep readers posted on.
But from a Disney fan perspective (and Epcot fan. And Japan Pavilion fan. And FOOD fan!), I was rather keen on making a new Advance Dining Reservation here. And when @DininginDisney and her family happened to be going, I was excited to tag along!
So, let’s see how this recent visit went!
Check-in for Teppan Edo is located just outside the steps leading up to the restaurant.
Why, hello there!! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking a food tour of Epcot’s beautiful Japan Pavilion!
Japan is the Pavilion where you can find everything from Pocky to SAKE in Epcot! But there’s so much more to take in… from sushi to Frozen Kirin beer and more, Japan is completely PACKED with fun and unique foods to try during your Epcot adventures. From two Table Service restaurants to outdoor vending spots and everything in between, you might be surprised to learn all there is to know about noshing in Epcot’s Japan. [Read more…]
We recently we dug our spoons once more into Kaki Gori, the Japanese Shaved Ice served at Kabuki Cafe. For years now, it’s been THE go-to treat as far as frozen options in the Japan Pavilion go, perfect for the cooling down in the current summer heat.
But did you know that Japan has got another — perhaps more authentic — frozen snack to keep your temperature down? It’s called Mochi. And though it’s been hanging around at the carts in the pavilion on-and-off for years, this additional cart we spotted recently seems to be mostly Mochi-centric. [Read more…]
What? You’ve recovered from the DFB Grilled Cheese Crawl, and you’re ready for another one? We are right there with ya!
So today, we’re heading to the Mecca of Diverse Disney food options, Epcot!
There are literally hundreds of delicious dishes and tempting snacks to be savored throughout the park. And that makes sense, since World Showcase immerses you into the cultures of eleven different countries.
But then, there’s Future World, too. Home to great little kiosks featuring flavored popcorns as well as one of our favorite counter service spots, Sunshine Seasons, there’s plenty to enjoy there as well.
We all have our favorites, but it’s also fun to check out the NEW stuff! And so today, that’s what we’re doing. Let’s head into Epcot and arrange the day around trying brand new (or in some cases, returning items) in our DFB “Just the New Stuff” Crawl, Epcot Edition!
I hope you came hungry. Let’s go!
Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding, Sunshine Seasons
To kick our day off right, we should start with a good breakfast. Sure, you could grab a bowl of cereal at the resort or head to Starbucks for a muffin, but I say let’s check out Sunshine Seasons in The Land Pavilion for their Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding.
Is it breakfast, or is it dessert? Who cares? Because this is vacation, and you NEED to have this rich, delicious dish to jump start your day. (Oh, and to answer the question, clearly, this is breakfast. I mean, who eats bacon with dessert? 😉 ) [Read more…]
