We had a case of wanderlust this week, and instead of getting out the passport and packing, we just hopped over to spend the day in Epcot. Our journey started with some time spent in Future World, followed by a trip around the World Showcase. And boy, did we find a lot new eats and buys for you on this “trip”!
It’s been a busy week around here! I hope yours has been a good one! Welcome to Spring (hopefully those of you who lost an hour last night will catch up with a nice nap today!).
Don’t forget to plan some fun-ness for St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday! Here’s what’s happening around WDW and Disneyland this week!
This week in Disney food news:
- We analyze Le Cellier’s new 2-credit signature dinner menu…
- New refillable mugs are available!
- The Via Napoli pizza window is back open!
- Disney is extending dining times for the busy season
- Disneyland’s Mother’s Day Buffet is open for booking
And now, on to the round-up!
Progress City USA analyzes Herb Ryman sketches for the “World Buffeteria,” a dining establishment slated for EPCOT Center that never came about.
Bakerella shows us that a little “homemade love” can result in adorable Mickey and Minnie cake pops! I’d probably get as far as the silhouettes 😉
Main Street Gazette attempts a feat I myself have not — and possibly will not — attempt: to eat a Turkey Leg. Oh, and I love the title reference.
Zannaland reported a while back on Disney’s AMC Theatre 24’s plans to launch Dine-In movies beginning in May. Food, film and fun!
Studios Central shares the back story to Sunset Ranch Market in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One of our favorite spots for Imagineering detail!
Hey Disney die-hards and foodie fans! Here is some news for your nourishment.
New Refillable Mugs
New refillable mugs for the 2011 “Let the Memories Begin” promotion are on sale now for $13.99 at your WDW resort.
Lids (and handles) are now in blue, black, yellow and pink. Yes, pink! I know a few moms that will be grabbing up the “princessy” mugs! 😉
Make sure each member of the family gets a different lid color. That way Mom doesn’t have to sip Dad’s coffee and Dad won’t be taking unintentional gulps of Mom’s diet soda. Note that not all the resorts appear to have the black lids. Let me know which mug types you spot during your WDW resort stay!
Cody Smith is back with an awesome review of the Via Napoli Pizza Window! (Yep — he went TODAY — when it’s CROWDED!) Huge thanks to you, Cody! (Cody’s a Cast Member at the moment, but you can also find him over at GDPinvestigation).
Originally excited for the newly-tested pizza window at Via Napoli, I was expecting a great success like I found the restaurant was. So I quickly headed over to the Italy pavilion at Epcot to see what this pizza window offered.
