One of the great, simple joys of visiting the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is grabbing a Mickey Pretzel in the shadow of Cinderella Castle. And not just because Mickey Pretzels come with a container of cheese (although that’s also idyllic). It’s just such a sweet moment.

I told you it was coming… . Check out the Starbucks 2017 Holiday Disney Parks Mug!
As a taller mug, it’s a bit of a different style, but the snowed-upon Gingerbread Castle and whimsical swirls make it just as fun as previous versions of the Starbucks Disney Parks Holiday Mug.
Hello, there! Or should I say, “Bonjour!”? Because we’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking a FOOD TOUR of Epcot’s France Pavilion!
So get ready to settle in… because when it comes to food options in Epcot’s France Pavilion, it’s almost an embarrassment of riches! Tucked into the beautiful Pavilion is a Signature Restaurant with Monsieur Paul and a Table Service restaurant, Chefs de France. But it’s also home to its very own housemade ice cream and sorbet shop, Slushes just for adults, and one of the most extensive and delicious snack offerings anywhere in Disney World at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie… and that’s not even everything!

Three words: Buttermilk Chess Pie.
The Polite Pig
And three more: The Polite Pig. That’s where you’ll find it!
The Polite Pig is a fast-casual dining location serving up “modern barbecue” in the Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs. It’s got a fantastic pedigree, being owned and operated by James Beard-nominated James and Julie Petrakis and James’ brother Brian — all of whom own restaurants in Winter Park and Orlando.
One of their restaurants — The Ravenous Pig — is The Polite Pig’s hungry older sister. And the reputation earned by that restaurant followed to the smaller Disney Springs location. And if you’re wondering where the politeness comes in, it’s everywhere.
Even on the walls!
The Polite Pig decor story is an eclectic mix of polished subway tile, industrial lights and rails, and colorful wood. It’s definitely the kind of place where you feel like you can kick back and relax. [Read more…]
