This little treat is not officially a part of the festival, so don’t look for it your Festival Passport. The big question, did this taste as good as it looked?
The first Epcot Festival of 2019 has officially begun! Today kicks off the third annual Epcot Festival of the Arts!
Today through February 25, 2019, three artistic disciplines — Visual, Performance, and Culinary — will be celebrated in special art exhibits, participatory activities and photo ops for guests, complimentary seminars and extra-ticketed interactive workshops, and performances including the Disney on Broadway Concert Series.
Today, we’re focusing — naturally! — on the Culinary Arts! You can find these at Food Studios around the World Showcase, which, like the Marketplace Booths for the Food and Wine Festival, bring new tapas sized dishes and unique drinks to the park. Additional items are also added to permanent locations in Epcot.
And we’re trying them ALL to bring YOU the items you’ve got to try at the Epcot Festival of the Arts! You can see pictures of every item by visiting our Food Studios page. But right now? Check out our…
BEST OF THE FEST!!
Here are our favorite food and drinks from the day!
All eyes in Epcot are on World Showcase Lagoon in 2019, because IllumiNations — the beloved fireworks, laser, and light show — is scheduled to end in the second half of the year. And to make the most of the final nights of the show, Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room in Epcot’s United Kingdom is now offering Illuminations Dining Packages!
Tonight is the first official night of this dining package which includes three courses and a patio seat for the big show! And thanks to DFB’s Travel Agent partner, Small World Vacations’ Sue P., who happened to get a preview last night — we’ve got everything you need to know about this unique dining experience BEFORE it officially begins!
As construction continues on the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction coming to Epcot, fans of the film franchise can enjoy a Guardians experience in the park in the meantime. Because this summer, Guardians of the Galaxy — Awesome Mix Live! will return to Epcot!
Star-Lord and Gamora will “take you on a musical journey through the cosmos” once again, performing hits from Star-Lord’s Awesome Mix tapes. Live shows will be performed daily from June 14 – August 18, 2019. [Read more…]
Today’s the day! We’re LIVE at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts — a celebration of the Visual, Performing, and Culinary Arts!!
And you know what that means…
You know how we at the DFB feel about poutine. We love it so much we created a poutine crawl last year. We visit The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs often to sample their limited time offerings. And if we spot poutine on a menu, we pretty much can’t help ourselves. So secret menu poutine at Le Cellier? Yeah, we gotta tell you about this one!
It’s called Annual Passholder Poutine — but you don’t need to have an Annual Pass to get it! [Read more…]
Hey, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talking about ways Disney World tricks you into having a magical time during your vacation!
We all love the escape that Disney World provides from real life… and many of the ways the parks accomplish that are pure genius! Disney utilizes some pretty cool techniques to allow for that psychological escape to all of the magic that the parks have in store. And that’s what we’re discussing in our latest DFB YouTube Video!
Epcot is busy with the International Festival of the Arts starting this Friday — we’ll be reporting live from opening day — but we still found new must-have food-themed merchandise being added to the shops as well as new drinks, sweet eats, teas, and construction progress — we’ve got it all covered!
Let’s jump in with that brand new space-themed restaurant near Mission: Space opening in 2020!
Ever since Epcot’s Kringla Bakeri og Kafe reopened in August 2018, we’ve been keeping an eye on the pastry case to see what old favorites returned and what new treats await. Just a few days ago, we told you that Troll Horns (finally!) made a comeback! And just yesterday we let you know about the Troll Kreme Spiked Slush that’s perfect for fortifying the spirit before jumping in line for Frozen Ever After.
And now we’re bringing you a sweet treat that’s reindeer approved (because, after all, reindeer are better than people). It’s Sven’s Apple Cheesecake, and it’s lovely in its simplicity.
We are so excited that the third annual Epcot Festival of the Arts kicks off this Friday! From January 18 – February 25, 2019 the Festival of the Arts will celebrate the Culinary, Visual, and Performance Arts in various ways throughout the park!
Today we attended a Preview Event to get a sneak peek (and even some sneak tastes) of what the Festival has in store. [Read more…]
