Wine Bar George in Disney Springs just announced they are hosting a wine tasting with Master Sommelier George Miliotes this Friday, July 20, 2018!
The event is a blind tasting of six wines presenting an opportunity to learn to taste wine like a Master Sommelier! “What’s a blind tasting?” you may ask. The identities of the wines you taste will be kept a secret until the end of the tasting. This method is used regularly by sommeliers to insure impartiality while evaluating a wine. [Read more…]

Most of this information still isn’t available on DisneyWorld.com, and it’s taken lots of time on hold and some virtual digging to gather it. But we’re saving you the trouble!
So we’re back with our recommendations for where to use your Quick Service Disney Dining Plan credits at Walt Disney World.
The Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic has become a must-do food event in Orlando over the past few years.
Ticket holders for the event will enjoy the activities on Friday, October 27, and/or Saturday, October 28, 2017, from 5:30PM to 9PM. As in the past, there are several ticket options, which you can find on the event website. The Causeway Ticket provides unlimited access to food and drinks along the Causeway between the two resorts. The Causeway Ticket and Beer Garden ticket allows access to the unlimited Causeway offerings as well as the Beer Garden. There are also a la carte tickets, tickets for seminars, and a Sunday Bubbles Brunch.

Intro and Check In
We wait all year for the start of it. Yep — the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is underway!
If you haven’t been, be sure to put the event on your Disney Bucket List. At this time of year, Epcot is transformed into a food lover’s paradise. With Festival Marketplace Booths throughout both Future World and World Showcase, the opportunity to Eat Your Way Around the World(s) is even more exciting!
But there are also some choices if you’d like to splurge a little. Party for the Senses draws big crowds every year, as do pairing events and signature dining options at restaurants throughout the resort.
It’s a lot to plan for! So we’d love to offer you advice on a few Dos and Don’ts for navigating the Epcot Food and Wine Festival like a pro. Consider these pointers as you make plans to attend this year’s event. [Read more…]
We got an unexpected look at the construction of BaseLine Tap House in Disney’s Hollywood Studios today. The construction walls, which normally hide this very un-magical work from guest view, were down, presumably due to the approaching hurricane.
BaseLine Tap House — which will serve beer, wine, and appetizers — will reside on Grand Avenue, a new-ish area that’s designed to capture “the spirit of Downtown Los Angeles.” We say new-ish because it’ll mostly be located in the remnants of Streets of America.
Let’s take a look! So far there’s lots of stylized fencing and lamp posts.
So Amorette’s Patisserie quietly introduced Wine Slushies recently. And the interwebs promptly lost their minds.
Of course, that meant one thing for your intrepid DFB investigator: I had to head to Disney Springs to see what all the fuss was about — and if it was warranted.
For those of you keeping track, the slushies join other grown up slushies that you’ll find throughout Walt Disney World. Some of our favorites are the Grey Goose and Grand Marnier Slushes in Epcot’s France. Morocco has a few of their own options as well. [Read more…]
Here is a bit of wine news for all you Vino fans out there… and you don’t have to wait until the Epcot Food and Wine Festival for it!
We have a couple of updates to report regarding Epcot’s World Showcase Wine Walk. For those unfamiliar with this lesser-known Epcot experience, here is a brief rundown (read about the experience in full here). Interested guests can head to any one of three spots to start their Wine Walk: the Germany Pavilion’s Weinkeller, Italy’s La Bottega Italia, and France’s Aux Vins de France. [Read more…]
According to the Orlando Sentinel, four more Magic Kingdom restaurants will begin serving wine and beer starting December 23, 2016.
