As you may know, the 2020 Epcot International Festival of the Arts is a celebration of all things in the visual, art, and culinary world, with a slew of special events and experiences.
Oh, Canada! We have some pretty big news from Epcot World Showcase!
We love a good Epcot festival and while we’re anxiously awaiting the start of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays on November 29, we’ve started looking ahead to the 2020 Epcot International Festival of the Arts. There’s a lot to do at the Festival of Arts and this year, there’s even a NEW brunch experience at one of Epcot’s most sought-after restaurants — Le Cellier Steakhouse.
Attention, Annual Passholders!! This one’s for you.
Disney World has announced a few complimentary and exclusive items and opportunities at Epcot and Animal Kingdom for Annual Passholders this fall.
WOW! Our latest visit to Epcot was packed with new finds! We caught up on all of the construction progress in the park, found new menu items, enjoyed some adorable sweet treats, and added more Disney items to our must-buy list!
Take a park tour with us to catch up on all that is new in Epcot!
Epcot is busy getting ready for the Flower and Garden Festival to start next week, but that isn’t all that is happening! We found so many changes, lots of new merchandise, the return of a hidden gem, and as always lots of construction progress!
We didn’t let a rainy day spoil our time in Epcot — see everything that’s new here!
Our weekly visit to Epcot includes a bunch of construction updates — including seeing part of the track for the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride!
The Guardians of the Galaxy ride isn’t the only thing going on Epcot right now, there’s also the addition of the Ratatouille Ride in the France Pavilion, TWO brand new restaurants, prep work for the new nighttime show, and more must-have merchandise!
What’s better than a home cooked holiday meal? A holiday meal at Walt Disney World!
Nearly every restaurant in Disney World features a turkey-based or holiday meal on Thanksgiving and Christmas days. But Disney features special holiday meals at select restaurants throughout Walt Disney World on these holidays every year as well. Disney just announced this year’s list of participating restaurants, so let’s take a look!
Hey, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and if you’re in the mood for some STEAK then you’ll definitely want to check it out!
That’s right! Today we’re taking on the Disney World steakhouses! Or, perhaps I should say they’re taking each other on in our Disney World Steakhouse Battle! We’re discussing Epcot’s Le Cellier, Yachtsman Steakhouse, Shula’s, and STK Orlando… and we’re listing pros and cons of each location to help you choose which location might be best for you during your Disney World vacation!

We’re stopping by one of my favorite spots in Walt Disney World — Le Cellier Steakhouse — to see what’s new in The Great White North!
Le Cellier Steakhouse
Well, technically, this isn’t North, it’s South. And we’re not in Canada. But we are in the Canada Pavilion in Epcot. Owing to the architecture and gardens here, this is one of the prettiest spots along World Showcase Promenade.
Who doesn’t love journeying back through the pavilion and getting splashed by waterfalls as you walk? You haven’t done it? I highly recommend it. And go see O, Canada! while you’re at it! Martin Short is the best. 😀 (Speaking of, when we were in Vancouver for our Alaska cruise last year I couldn’t help but notice that Martin Short is the voice of, like, every single cartoon in Canada.)
But while I love exploring the whole area to see what’s new, it’s Le Cellier Steakhouse, the pavilion’s signature dining table service restaurant, that keeps me coming back trip after trip. Le Cellier is a favorite of mine because it features one of my favorite meals in all of Walt Disney World — the Le Cellier Filet.
But you know my philosophy: just because something has always been great doesn’t mean it continues to be. We always like to check back in with places — even our favorites — to make sure we can still continue to recommend them. And so, in the name of research, here I am at Le Cellier once again. And this time there was a new favorite… .
Meander back along the beautiful gardens, following the signs, and you’ll come to the entrance of Le Cellier Steakhouse. Tucked into the bottom of the chateau that’s the hallmark of the Canada Pavilion, you get a sense that the spot is aptly named.
It always throws me a little, this imagining that I’m in Canada when Florida is so very hot most of the time. Still, as soon as you walk through the doors, the Disney magic kicks in, and you start to feel as though you have indeed traveled north. Stone walls and flooring, along with heavy wood accents, immediately evoke a feeling of…cool. [Read more…]
