Today we’re going to talk about several FOOD trends we’ve spotted around Disney property. We want to know — are you on board with these trends or would you rather leave them behind??
Happy weekend! We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you! First, a few things to remember…

We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is returning once again for 2019! Sponsored by Visit Orlando, this annual event begins August 23 and runs through September 30th. Magical Dining Month offers Orlando locals and guests the chance to enjoy the Orlando culinary scene at significant savings: $35 for three courses at participating area restaurants. Over 100 restaurants will be offering the prix fixe dinners, which include appetizer, entree, and dessert.
In keeping with tradition, one dollar from each meal goes to support local charities. Best Buddies and Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida were the two charities for 2018, and the charities for this year’s program will be announced in the coming weeks.
So, Paddlefish in Disney Springs has been wowing us with innovative mixology from the beginning! Remember that crazy Halloween cocktail where you actually put charcoal in it? And Paddlefish was the first to debut a version of boozy popsicles (yes pls!).
Well they’re at it again on the mixology beat, my friends, with a new way to whet your whistle this weekend!!
Boozy popsicles seem to be a new Disney World trend, with refreshment Cocktail Pops in Italy in Epcot’s World Showcase and Buzz Pops at Paddlefish in Disney Springs. And now these grown-up popsicles have made their way to Pizza Ponte in Disney Springs as well!
The good news here is that the new Pizza Ponte popsicles we’re checking out today are made by the same brand (Pop Fusions) as the popsicles being served in the Italy pavilion at Epcot. [Read more…]
