With Disney Food Blog’s second annual WDW Foodie Fest just a month away, I’m excited to announce the dates for two more events during our week-long celebration of Disney food! Check out the schedule of events here!
WDW Foodie Fest
Join the Disney Food Blog team during the first week of the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival as we gather to celebrate Disney food! With several events to choose from, we hope we’ll get to see all of you at least once!
Currently we have four WDW Foodie Fest events scheduled (with one more possibly on the way)! Personally, I can’t wait for the main event on October 2nd at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
Sunday, Oct. 2, 2011: WDW Foodie Fest Main Event
We’ll be at our very own private location — Ariel’s in Disney’s Beach Club Resort — from 11am-1pm enjoying the comforts of this beautiful (and air-conditioned!) space.
This FREE event is available to everyone, and is an “open house”, so just stop in whenever you’re available (no need to stay the full two hours, though you’re welcome to do so :-D). We’ll provide the snacks and games!
If you arrive early enough, you’ll be able to take part in our annual WDW Foodie Fest scavenger hunt through Epcot! There will be prizes, so bring your skills and get ready for some fun competition. On your mark, get set…
Of course, if scavenger hunting isn’t for you (or if it’s raining), you can just hang with foodie friends, me, and the DFB gang. We’ll have games, snacks, and fun at Ariel’s!
And there’s more! Check out these events:
Thursday, October 6, 2011: WDW Foodie Fest Sweet Stroll
Join me for a trip around the world — Epcot-style. The focus on this stroll around World Showcase will be fabulous desserts! I’ll lead the way to my favorite sweet treats and we’ll see how many we can master!
When: Thursday, October 6th, at 11am. We’ll be starting in Mexico and meeting at the La Cantina de San Angel tables across from the Mexico Pyramid.
Cost: Free to stroll with us, but budget enough to cover any yummy treats you’d like to try.
Friday, October 7, 2011: WDW Foodie Fest Sushi and Sake Meet
Join me at Kimonos at the Disney World Swan Resort for sushi, sake, good fun, and friends! With great sake and maybe some Karaoke — this is sure to be a memorable evening with friends.
Oh, and even if you don’t like sushi, they have some awesome chicken on a stick! 😉
When: Friday, October 7th, at 5:30pm. We’re not sure how long this one will last, but we’ll likely be there for about two hours before I head out to the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic! If anyone wants to stay for karaoke, I’ll meet you back at Kimonos for that!
Cost: Free to drop by the meet-up! Food and drink purchases are at your expense.
Our fourth event has already sold out, but I wanted to let you know about it for next year!! See below!
Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011: WDW Foodie Fest Snack Attack Illuminations Dessert Party, Featuring DFB Favorites!
**EVENT SOLD OUT** Thank you for your overwhelming interest in this event!! For those of you with tickets, this will be a memorable Disney Food event featuring Disney Food Blog favorite snacks and an incredible viewing of IllumiNations, Reflections of Earth. I can’t wait to have all of my favorite snacks within reach!
If you didn’t get a ticket, the event will likely be returning next year!
Special Price and Complimentary Upgrade at the WDW Dolphin Resort for DFB Readers!
Don’t forget that Disney Food Blog fans and WDW Foodie Fest attendees can get a discounted price and complimentary upgrade at the WDW Dolphin Resort from October 1-9, 2011! This resort is within walking distance of all WDW Foodie Fest events as well as the Epcot Food and Wine Festival! See details here!
Special thanks to our 2011 Foodie Fest Sponsors!
We wouldn’t be able to offer so many great events at *free* or discounted prices without the support of our sponsors!
Mousefan Travel: MEI Mousefan Travel has helped us and can help you get a great deal on your Disney vacation — no matter where you’re going! The agents at this company are dedicated to making magical vacations. We’re honored to have such an accomplished agency headlining our sponsor list this year!
AllEars.Net: If you haven’t been to All Ears, rest assured that you will find everything you need for your Disney World or Disneyland vacation there!

And I use this site for my own vacation research!
Raglan Road Pub and Restaurant: Raglan Road is, without a doubt, one of the best restaurants in Walt Disney World. With incredible Irish food menu created by Master Chef Kevin Dundon, authentic Irish entertainment, and a beautiful, hearty atmosphere, this is the place to go for great food and good fun in Downtown Disney. I can’t wait to see you there!
Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic: Be sure to get your tickets for the 2011 Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic, taking place October 7-8 in Walt Disney World! This incredible event offers informative and interesting seminars as well as tasting booths offering up some delicious eats.
