Happy weekend and Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s all the Disney food news this week!
First, a few things to remember…

We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
The Disney Skyliner gondola system has been in testing for some time now in preparation for carrying guests this fall. For the most part, the gondolas have been under wraps while in testing.

Well, there’s a LOT more than ONE gondola cabin uncovered today! [Read more…]
