We were in the Spring Break mood so we headed to Key West…Disney’s Old Key West Resort that is! After our tropical escape we headed to Saratoga Springs Resort. On our “travels” we found new menus, merchandise, cupcakes, and wine and mixology seminars!
Our visit to Old Key West’s Gurgling Suitcase was full of new menu items!
Hey, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking you on TWO Disney World Resort Food Tours!
We’re visiting BOTH Saratoga Springs and Old Key West! These Deluxe Resorts have several things in common: they’re both Disney Vacation Club Resorts, they’re both near Disney Springs, and they’re both home to a few hidden gems in regards to dining! And remember… you don’t have to be staying at a particular Resort to dine there. And since these Resorts are both so close to Disney Springs, why don’t you check them out to see if you might want to take a boat ride over to either Resort to check out some of their unique eats on your next Disney World vacation?

Port Orleans French Quarter Resort has been home to several discoveries this past summer including Mickey-Shaped Beignets in Sassagoula Floatworks Food Court and Boozy Beignets at Scat Cats Club. And not to be left out, Saratoga Springs’ Artist’s Palette asked us to “choose them” with an Alien Dessert recently.
Our newest update from these resorts has to do with their Pizzas.
But first…the news!
- The Karamelle Kuche, or Caramel Kitchen, in Epcot’s Germany has a reported opening date!

- The Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts are introducing an annual Food and Wine Classic this year during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival! Check out the details for info on seminars and samplings as well as some great hotel rates.
- Touring Plans tipped us off to a potential extension of Disney World Free Dining. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon.
AND… Disney Food Blog and WDW Foodie Fest t-shirts are now available! You can check them out over on www.Zazzle.com/DisneyFoodBlog. Remember, you can purchase any design on any size/style shirt, so feel free to mix and match.
