Welcome to this week’s What’s New in Epcot! We’re checking out construction updates, the return of Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! and of course, so much new merchandise!
We have a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get started!
Happy weekend! Here’s all the Disney food news this week!
The 2019 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival kicked off March 1 and we have the FULL MENUS here! Oh, and we’ve also got SECRET menu info and reviews for you!
AND – the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge were announced for BOTH Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
Today is the very first day of the 2019 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! Now through June 3, 2019, Epcot guests can enjoy gorgeous Disney-themed topiaries, specialty tours, extra family fun, and the Garden Rocks Concert Series, to name a few of the extra activities blooming all over the park in celebration of Spring.
An unprecedented 17 Outdoor Kitchens set the culinary scene this year — PLUS additional Festival offerings at various locations around the park. And our goal today is to bring you all of the items you CAN’T MISS when you visit the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival this year!
It’s the Best of the Fest for the 2019 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! [Read more…]
While this Outdoor Kitchen is serving up its anticipated Szechuan Spicy Red-braised Beef Shank over Rice, “Panda” Bubble Tea, and more, guests visiting the booth may also notice — if you peek at the side of the booth opposite of the ordering registers — a Cotton Candy artist creating Chinese Cotton Candy!

Welcome, Spring, to Epcot!
And with Spring comes the 2018 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! Today is the very first day, and now through May 28th Epcot guests will enjoy Disney-themed topiaries all over the park, specialty tours, extra family fun, and the Garden Rocks Concert Series (complete with Dining Packages once again this year).
In fact, 2018 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Flower and Garden Festival? So what better way to celebrate than to try ALL THE EATS — and DRINKS! — at this year’s Festival? Yep, we did it! And now we’re here to tell you what we think are the MUST EATS at this year’s Festival!
There’s a lot to love about Epcot during just about every season. With the Epcot Food and Wine Festival in the Fall, and Holidays Around the World celebrating Winter holidays, this has truly become a festival Park!
But Spring in the park is especially beautiful as the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival gets going. (I know. It doesn’t feel like Spring everywhere. But trust me. It does in Florida.)
The Flower and Garden Festival, which runs through May 30, opened last week, and we were there for the very first day! After an afternoon of Eating and Drinking Around the World, we came away with pictures of all of the dishes — and more than a few new favorites! Today, we’d like to share with you our Best of the Fest — our top picks from the new dishes that you can enjoy when you visit this year’s Festival.
La Isla Fresca debuted at the 2016 Flower and Garden Festival, and it brings with it the fresh flavors of the Caribbean. Everything that we tasted here was a winner!
But we especially liked the option to choose between Jerked Grouper or Chicken (although we went for both! :-D) But seriously — not everyone is a fish lover, and not all folks eat chicken. So having a dish where you can decide, but still enjoy the flavors, is a great idea! [Read more…]
