Welcome to the Disney Food Blog! My name is AJ Wolfe, and I’ve been visiting Disney parks all my life. My favorite thing to do in Disney Parks and Resorts is eat, and you should admit right now that you love it, too. I don’t know about you, but my Disney Vacation starts with restaurant planning, and I’ll take any opinions I can get (especially if there are pictures attached to the opinions!).

Downloaded your book the other day after months of hesitation. I thought I had been before and already knew pretty much where we would dine for our upcoming trip, so why read it? Why spend the money?

Frequently Asked Questions and More Info
Hey AJ — Who Pays For Your Travel Costs and the Food You Eat?
As a general rule, my husband and I (or our columnists and team members when they’re writing up reviews) pay for every trip taken to a Disney-area property — flights, hotel, food, tickets. It’s important to us to do this so that we can further ensure our readers that our reviews are unbiased.
If our travel, hotel, tickets, or food are ever complimentary, it will be noted in the resulting blog posts. However, I am 100% honest in my reviews, even if the food was complimentary. If I didn’t like it, I’ll let you know Neither I nor our editors and contributors are ever under any obligation to review food positively.
Hey AJ — Do You REALLY Eat All That Food, or Do You Rely On Other People To Give You Reviews?
Good question! Our DFB Team of reviewers consists of two people — myself, and my staff photographer and designer. Together, she and I eat everything. We do like to bring friends with us so we’re not wasting too much food, but in those cases we ALWAYS try a bite or two of everything.
On very rare occasions, we will have guest reviewers or other DFB team members help out (e.g. when we’re buying and eating EVERYTHING on the day an Epcot festival opens we usually have one other person with us). But, for 95% of the food items reviewed, it’s one of the two of us. We’ve both been reviewing Disney food for many, many years, so we have a strong sense of context when we review new items. If another DFB team member is reviewing, it is always someone who has reviewed before and who has strong knowledge of how we judge and review food items. If we have a guest reviewer, we note it in the post so our readers are aware.
How Often Do Menus and Options Change at Disney Restaurants?
Disney restaurant menus can change daily, weekly, monthly, or seasonally depending on what restaurant you’re considering. Also, some restaurants and dining locations are only open seasonally, or on very busy days.
We’ll try to note in our reviews when a venue is only open seasonally or on certain days, but even then it can be a surprise.
Always contact Disney directly to confirm that an item you’re looking for is on the menu during your visit, or that a particular restaurant will be open on the day you’re in the park.
Disney Food Photos
We all love pictures, so I’ll post as many as I can. PLEASE send in yours as well (foodpics @ disneyfoodblog.com), and be sure to let me know how to credit your work in the blog!
