We’re celebrating America’s birthday all week long with Disney World’s Independence Day Foodie Guide!
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.
The new Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge opens later this month, and Disney has released the first look at concept art for the location.
The restaurant is being transformed into an Enchanted Forest for the new character dining experience, complete with trees adorned with lanterns. [Read more…]
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…]
Hey, you all! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re discussing the Top 5 Disney World Resorts in terms of our favorite topic: FOOD!
When you think of food at Disney World, perhaps your mind goes to the parks first. Maybe iconic snacks like the Magic Kingdom’s Citrus Swirl come to mind, or fun and unique in-park dining experiences like Sci-Fi Dine In at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But I’m telling you, there is a LOT of terrific eating to do outside the parks in the Disney World Resorts, and we’re talking today about our top five Resorts in regards to dining experiences. And remember, thanks to Disney Transportation, you don’t need to be staying at a Resort to check out the restaurants or snacks at any given spot. So settle in, and enjoy our latest DFB Video to learn more! [Read more…]
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re checking out the BEST Disney World Resorts!
There is a LOT to consider when you’re planning your Disney World vacation… and at the top of the list is where to stay! Disney World has no shortage of beautifully themed Resorts to choose from. And while they all have their own style of Disney magic, we’d like to share our favorites with you today! [Read more…]
It’s good to see you again, Roaring Fork!
Roaring Fork is the primary Counter Service restaurant at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Over the past several months, the entire resort has been undergoing several refurbishments, and these changes have certainly included some of the dining options at the Lodge.
For instance, this past February brought the addition of Geyser Point Bar & Grill — a hybrid outdoor lounge and Counter Service location. The opening of Geyser Point coincided with the temporary closure of Roaring Fork for a renovation of its own.
And even though Geyser Point has been a terrific addition to Wilderness Lodge, we have missed Roaring Fork. As home to everything from Specialty Waffles in the morning to some of our favorite cupcakes anywhere — all served up in the Lodge’s uniquely beautiful rustic setting — Roaring Fork has long held a special place in our hearts. And we know we’re not the only ones who feel that way.
So, I’m sure some of you are as anxious as I am to see what’s new and what’s remained the same (did the Waffles make the cut?!?) at Roaring Fork. Let’s not waste any more time checking it out!
Before the refurbishment, there were a few words you could always use to describe Roaring Fork. Among them were “rustic” and even “cozy.” [Read more…]
HELLOOOOO from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!
Geyser Point Bar & Grill
We’re here to check out all the eats and drinks at the BRAND NEW Geyser Point Bar & Grill located near Silver Creek Springs Pool (the Resort’s main pool). This new spot blends right in with the Pacific Northwest feel of this beautiful Resort, and we’re happy to show you around!
By the way, this opening coincides with the temporary closure of Roaring Fork, a Counter Service option, and the permanent closure of Trout Pass Pool Bar. Roaring Fork will reopen later this year once their refurbishments are complete, but Trout Pass will be repurposed, with Geyser Point serving as the main pool bar for both pools.
Therefore, in its opening months, Geyser Point will be THE place for Counter Service breakfast, lunch, AND dinner at Wilderness Lodge (and Territory Lounge will serve continental breakfast options and coffee until 2 pm daily). But there’s more to it than that, as you’re about to see…
… as you join us for our first trip to Geyser Point Bar & Grill!
