We love exploring Disney’s resorts and finding all of the new goodies!
And we visited MANY of our favorite spots to bring you the latest news! Join us as we check out new food, merchandise, and resort updates (including an Easter Egg display!).
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a stunning resort, with a Pacific Northwest theme and a location convenient to boating on over to the Magic Kingdom.
In addition to having normal guest rooms, this deluxe resort is also a Disney Vacation Club Resort, featuring the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins and Boulder Ridge Villas!
It’s no secret that Disney World knows how to make a good looking cupcake. And since Christmas is coming and it’s Friday and you don’t really want to work anyway…we thought you’d enjoy being brought up to date on a few of our favorites. 😉 You’re welcome.
While we wish these cupcakes could last forever, many of these are seasonal offerings, so be sure to check menus ahead of your visit! If these aren’t here on your visit, we’re sure there are some great ones in the bakery cases for ya!
Happy weekend! We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you, which is compiled here! First, a few things to remember…
The 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival kicks off August 29 and we’re covering it all! Did you see the menus that are out now? See every single Food and Wine Festival MENU and some FOOD PHOTOS as well — here!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now OPEN at Disneyland and will open August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Check out all our Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge coverage to start planning for Disney World (the two lands will be virtually identical!)!
Now — on to the news!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
The wilderness called to us and we answered with a visit to the Wilderness Lodge. We found new menu items at Roaring Fork, Geyser Point, and not 1, not 2, but 3 NEW skillets in Whispering Canyon Cafe! Check out all of the updates here!
Our adventures in the wilderness started out at the resort’s quick-service Roaring Fork, where we found some new items on the menu.
In case you needed another reason to visit Roaring Fork at Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge…
… we’ve got one! It’s the Oktoberfest Cupcake! This chocolate cupcake is complete with Guinness ganache (!!!) and topped with cinnamon frosting, then garnished with chocolate-dipped pretzels and candy pearls for a sweet-and-salty treat. [Read more…]
We are heading back to one of my favorite spots to grab a quick bite and drink — Territory Lounge.
I really, really recommend this place. It’s comfortable, has a fantastic staff, is just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom, and usually has a pretty incredible menu.
While my “love” for neighboring Artist Point waxes and wanes, I’ve enjoyed the majority of my visits to Territory Lounge. And with the recent installation at Artist Point of a new chef, who also covers Territory Lounge, I figured it was as good a time as any to visit again.
The decor of the cavernous Wilderness Lodge lobby area echoes the same Craftsman style as the outside of the resort. But as you begin to explore different corners, you see that there’s more here than just Arts and Crafts. [Read more…]
Courtesy of DFB Reader Christina, we have a mini-review from the Territory Lounge at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
This is one of our favorite spots to relax when we’re in the World, and it’s not just because it’s an out-of-the-way retreat! The menu is ALWAYS awesome!
You’ll remember our discovery of the awesome fondue, charcuterie, house-made chips and dips, and DONUTS, right?? Well, the donuts aren’t there anymore, but you can still get lots of our other favorites!
Let’s take a look at the current menu…
Christina notes a seasonal change with the Mushroom Soup substituted for Clam Chowder. Here’s a previous menu (October 2013) for comparison:
Christina had the new fondue… made with [Read more…]
