The 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World is coming up soon but EPCOT opened up some more festival booths for us to enjoy early! Several of them are BRAND NEW, so you know we had to get to the World Showcase ASAP to check them out for you! And one of these new booths is a lobster lover’s DREAM!
Hello from opening day of EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival!
We’re here checking out allll the eats and drinks around the World Showcase! If you like to start your international travels in Canada instead of Mexico, one of the first places you’ll pass by is Refreshment Port, so let’s see what the spot has to offer at this year’s festival!
EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival is almost here!
The festival begins on July 15th and will run through November 20th, 2021. We’re going to see some of our favorite food booths returning and there are several new booths to look forward to! There are also activities around the park to participate in like the epic cheese crawl that’s returning, and we just found out what’s on the menu!
Reservations opened on May 15th for Special Events at the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, and with dozens of demonstrations, seminars, pairings, and more to experience, it can be difficult to know which event (or events) to choose to book.
But lucky for you, we’ve been there, done that, so we can give you some guidance and help you book the most worthwhile events.
Here are five underrated Food & Wine Festival events you might want to try this year!
Culinary Demonstrations and Beverage Seminars
and Beverage Seminars are some of the Festival’s low-cost options at $19 each, but that low cost is a little misleading. These events are informative and fun, lead by industry experts, and allow guests to sample the highlighted food or drink! [Read more…]
kicked off today, and to say it’s been delicious is an understatement. And now, amongst all the food and wine, we’ve discovered BEER MARSHMALLOWS. Yes — you read that correctly. House-Made Beer Marshmallows!
And these aren’t just some delicious house-made marshmallows kickin’ it solo. Oh, no! They’re coated in milk chocolate and topped with a pretzel! Salty, sweet, and beer-y! But wait! That’s not all… [Read more…]
You know your friends at the DFB recommend making Advance Dining Reservations before you depart for your fabulous Walt Disney World vacation — 180 days ahead of time, if you want to be sure to snag your must-have table service reservations.

is a fabulous opportunity to eat lots of great food and to drink lots of great drinks. And while we know we’ll be putting some of our returning favorites on our must-eat list — we also make a second list: New Stuff We Can’t Wait to Try! (Yeah, we’re all about lists here at DFB!)
And this is that list — including a few items we got the chance to sample recently!
Guinness Baileys Shake – Ireland
The new Guinness Bailey’s Shake from the Ireland booth got us all kinds of excited when we saw it on the menu! We were expecting a frozen, creamy drink with a powerful hit of Guinness and Baileys — and that’s just what we got when we tried it during a preview! PLUS it comes with the glass! We can’t wait to try it again!
The Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar is brand new this year, and the offerings sound incredible! Mimosas include varieties like the Tropical Mimosa and the Madras Mimosa (which we have tried!), and there’s a tasty-sounding, kid-friendly drink called Frozen Apple Pie!
But aside from those intriguing drinks, the Mimosa Bar is also serving up pastries like an Almond Croissant and a Cheese Danish with Sweet Icing! One of each, please! [Read more…]
