If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, we have a list of TEN “value” items you should consider getting across the festival booths! Whether it’s for their larger portion sizes, pricier ingredients, or hidden savings, we hope this list helps you save a little bit of money as you make your way around the festival!
We had a great day eating and drinking our way around the 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival!
This year’s festival runs July 15th, 2021 through November 20th, 2021, and has a whopping 32 food booths. We spent our way getting our snack on at the 23 booths that opened today (the rest come later!) and we have some OPINIONS.
Can you feel it? The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is RIGHT around the corner and today made it feel even more REAL!
Today as we were visiting EPCOT we noticed some new additions to the Food and Wine Festival Booths that were not there before. Disney added menus with prices around most of the booths around World Showcase! We made sure to grab some first looks for you so that you can continue to plan your trip to The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival this year! Let’s take a look! [Read more…]
The world has certainly changed a lot in the last year, and the travel industry is a major example of this.
Airlines were one of the types of businesses that were highly affected by the global health crisis and resulting closures. Now, as the industry starts to return and a COVID-19 vaccine may be on the horizon, one airline is looking to the future for how best to keep passengers safe — and it might surprise you.
The global health crisis continues to affect the travel industry. As it stands, many international airlines haven’t yet resumed flights to the US. Thus, it’s more difficult for international guests to get to Disney World.
And although some governments are starting to consider how to resume select flights to and from the US soon, it may take up to a year or longer for international airlines to do so.
Disney’s animated films take us to some extraordinary places! They’ve taken us under the sea in The Little Mermaid and even to outer space in films like WALL-E.
And did you know there are a ton of REAL places all over the globe that served as an inspiration for many of our beloved animated films?
Grab your snacks and settle in for an adventure around the world as we check out 14 real places from Disney’s animated films!
Ever dreamed of dining at the Eiffel Tower in Paris? How about traversing across the rugged terrain of New Zealand on horseback?

Three new Adventures by Disney destinations have been announced for 2021, in addition to modifications to current destinations. Disney has also announced the dates for advance booking for 2021 itineraries!

Are you ready? Because it’s time to DIG in!
Warm Raclette Swiss Cheese at The Alps
Let’s start with warm cheese at The Alps! This one is an AJ favorite!! You guys know that I lived in Switzerland for a year, and raclette (melty raclette cheese poured over bread, boiled potatoes, gherkins, and other goodies) as a staple.
And Disney’s actually done a great job with it here! The half-wheel of raclette is melted right in the booth, and shaved off beautifully onto the veggies and bread. Pungent and delicious, this one is a must-do for my cheese-fans out there.
Spanish-style Paella with Botifarra and Roasted Chicken at Spain
is serving a Spanish-style Paella with Botifarra and Roasted Chicken with a little bit of heat! Flavorful and cooked to perfection!!
If you’re looking for a larger portion, this is a great buy.
Jerk-spiced Chicken with Roasted Sweet Plantain Salad and Mango Chutney Yogurt at Islands of the Caribbean
For Islands of the Caribbean, Jerk-spiced Chicken with Roasted Sweet Plantain Salad and Mango Chutney Yogurt is a stand-out!
While this dish hasn’t wowed us in previous years, this time around the chicken is cooked on an outdoor grill! You WILL taste the difference. It was a DFB team favorite!
Citrus Sunrise and Chai-Quila at Joffrey’s
For a refreshing beverage, stop by Joffrey’s for a Citrus Sunshine in Canada. Opt for this drink over the Aulani Sunrise at Hawai’i.
At the Odyssey cart by Joffrey’s, we like the Chai-quila.
Roasted Lamb Chop and Deconstructed Pavlova at Australia
At Australia, the Roasted Lamb Chop had great flavors. It’s a twist on the lamb chops of the past at this booth and we loved the update.
For a not-too-sweet dessert, one member of the DFB team really enjoyed the lightness of this option.
Spicy Hummus Fries and New York Strip Steak Green Shermoula Flatbread at Morocco
The Spicy Hummus Fries at Morocco were delicious, as always, even with the sauce update — we needed more sauce, though!
The flatbread (it was a taco) had a really good kick to it!
Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake AND Blueberry Wine at The Cheese Studio
Let’s look at two returning favorites. First, The Cheese Studio is worth a visit for the Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake.
This creamy, decadent treat is made better-than-your-usual-cheesecake (and that’s saying something!!) thanks to that hint of bourbon in the caramel sauce.
BUT, the Sparkling Blueberry Wine by Florida Orange Groves Winery wowed us again! [Read more…]
The opening day for the 2019 International Epcot Food and Wine Festival is almost here!
We know there are TONS of new booths and menu items hitting the promenade this year — from that AH-MAZING Raclette cheese at the Alps Booth to our-brand-new-favorite Mule Beer at Coastal Eats! And we TOTALLY got the chance to try a ton of them today! We can’t wait to share our reviews and photos with you!
