Lots happening on the Disney news front this week as we mourn Fess Parker, a man known for deeply affecting both the Disney and Food communities with his careers. In case you haven’t seen it, Scott Joseph’s Orlando Restaurant Guide features a wonderful write-up of Mr. Joseph’s dinner with the late Fess Parker during the 1992 Walt Disney World Village Wine Festival.
Before we start the round-up, here’s a reminder of a couple of Disney food-related news items:
- The Wine and Dine Half Marathon and Mickey Halloween Family Fun Run 5K details and registration information have been announced.
- Napa Rose is holding a Wine Pairing Dinner this Wednesday, hosted by the Napa Valley Vintners. Click on the link for reservation information.
And now, on to the Round-Up:
Main Street Gazette allows me to breathe a sigh of relief that Artist Point seems to be regaining some of the culinary expertise I’ve found lacking in my recent trips. Absolutely gorgeous food here!
Magical Kingdoms Disney Blog has a review of Walt’s — An American Restaurant in Disneyland Resort Paris. Food pics here from the adult menu, teenagers menu, and kids menu, so go take a look!
Inside John’s Locker (John, of course, being Mr. Owner’s Locker himself) shares the story of Olivia Farnsworth, the namesake of Olivia’s in Disney’s Old Key West Resort.
Dining With the Mouse has posted some mouth-watering food photos from her several Disneyland trips over the past few months. Definitely getting me excited for my DL trip in a month!
MousePlanet reports that Disneyland Chefs will be participating in demo events at area Bloomingdales Department Stores the weekend of March 24-26.
Chip and Co has a lovely article reviewing Disney World’s Biergarten…with a pretty funny icebreaker story to boot!
Watch Me Eat takes us back to Tangierine Cafe this week! We just can’t get enough!
Tasty Chomps visits the Fife and Drum Tavern in Epcot’s World Showcase. (Note/Warning: very close-up photo of a Turkey Leg if you’ve never seen one…)
The Daily Disney has one of my favorite recipes this week: Pop Century’s Fried Chicken! (Also love this Mickey’s Premium Bar antenna topper that theme park ranger DeWayne Bevil found…)
LOL. Thank you. I swear, everytime I think of that woman I crack up.
It’s hilarious! Great post, Chris.

Hi AJ! I’m so glad I found your blog. I’m a fellow food blogger, planning a trip to Orlando for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon in the fall. New to running, too, but the promise of Disney + Food got me off the couch and training 🙂 Looking forward to reading through your archives. It’s nice to “meet’ you!
Amy — Cool! I just added you on twitter and followed your facebook fan page 🙂 Can’t wait to read more about your “Happiest Race on Earth” and more from your blog! Are you on foodblogforum.com?
Amy I. says
Yes I am, that’s actually how I found you!
Wonderful! I’ll get over there and friend you if I haven’t already (can’t always tell who’s got which blog!). Hope we can say Hi at the Wine and Dine!
