We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks.
Due to the current global situation, Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris theme parks will be closed until further notice. Shanghai Disneyland reopened in mid-May and Disney World is REOPENING on July 11th! See all of our coverage HERE. And Disney Springs has REOPENED! Now — we still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
Welcome back, friends! We’re here with another What’s New in Disney Springs!
And, we’ve got plenty of merchandise, food, entertainment, and construction updates to share with you, so let’s dive right on in!

Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another roundup of What’s New in Disney Springs.
We’ve got plenty of merch, food, and construction updates for ya, so let’s dive right on in!
Hot dogs, sweet tea, and lemonade? Count us in!!
We love having a good ol’ hot dog and a nice refreshing drink during hot days in Disney World, especially when they are part of a great doggone deal!
There’s a brand new, fun, and interactive store in Disney Springs as well as a ton of other changes! See everything we found this week!
Walt Disney World
is never shy to jump on the bandwagon of snack trends, and we love them for it! Edible cookie dough is one such trend — and it’s popping up all over the place! We first spotted it at All-Star Sports back in July, then it arrived (in Mickey style!!) at AristoCrepes in Disney Springs. Now there’s a second Disney Springs locale getting in on the action: B. B. Wolf’s!
Flavor combinations in edible cookie dough can be as diverse as cookies themselves, and AristoCrepes offered the most unique combo we’d seen thus far with Gingerbread Butterscotch. But B. B. Wolf’s is taking it there with Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!
Bacon in dessert can be a little hit or miss for us, but this one looks promising enough with lots of crispy bacon bits on top of the otherwise ordinary-looking cookie dough. The bacon, sadly, isn’t caramelized or sweetened in anyway, so it’s just a serious savory bomb. This creates a really stark contrast to the otherwise sweet dessert.
For us, this uber-savory addition didn’t work. It’s too salty and overpowers the (relatively nonexistent) maple and chocolate, both of which take a backseat to the super-salty bacon. There are plenty of chocolate chips in there, but they can’t compete with the bossy bacon. And the cookie dough flavor itself just isn’t there.
The concept we do not dispute, but it’s a little clunky and thus out of balance. If you’re spending $4.50, find a snack that’s hitting all the right notes, not one that needs to be edited.

In previous years, Party for the Senses one of the festival’s biggest (and priciest) Special Events, brought together over-the-top food and drink, paired with up close and personal entertainment provided by Cirque de Soleil. But in 2016, that all changed, as the events became much more specifically themed and the slate of entertainment changed with each party.
Join us as we look back at one of the events from last year, which celebrated Disney Springs.
Party for the Senses: A Sense of Disney Springs
Have you ever been inside the cavernous World ShowPlace? What? You don’t even know what that is?
Well, that’s because it’s a special events pavilion that’s only opened up for big doings, such as holiday dinner buffets… and grand tasting events during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, like Party for the Senses. During the rest of the year, the venue, located between the Canada and UK Pavilions, is hidden behind a large set of wooden doors.
As you enter, the first room is normally sort of like a giant receiving hall. Go past this area, and that’s where the party really starts. [Read more…]
