OK, this is…adorable, tbh. We couldn’t be more excited to tell you guys about the new Fish and Chips merch we just spotted in Epcot! That’s right, dearies! We said FISH and CHIPS!!!
While we were strolling around Epcot for the first day of the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival we stopped by one of our favorite places for a quick bite in World Showcase, Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK Pavillion.
While the most popular food is in the name (and they do have some crazy good fish and chips here!), every so often they change it up and offer other traditional fares. We saw a chicken and mushroom pie here not too long ago, and now it looks like a new rendition of that pie has emerged in the form of the Cornish Pasty.
All eyes in Epcot are on World Showcase Lagoon in 2019, because IllumiNations — the beloved fireworks, laser, and light show — is scheduled to end in the second half of the year. And to make the most of the final nights of the show, Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room in Epcot’s United Kingdom is now offering Illuminations Dining Packages!
Tonight is the first official night of this dining package which includes three courses and a patio seat for the big show! And thanks to DFB’s Travel Agent partner, Small World Vacations’ Sue P., who happened to get a preview last night — we’ve got everything you need to know about this unique dining experience BEFORE it officially begins!
Earlier this month we told you about the new Vegan Slaw Dog that’s on the menu at Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom, and now we have details about another Disney World restaurant that is testing a vegan version of a popular dish!
Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room was testing a NEW Vegan Fishless Fish and Chips dish this week! [Read more…]
is a favorite of many Walt Disney World guests — and it’s easy to see why.
Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room
The charm of this table service restaurant is apparent from the curb, as the facades of the United Kingdom in Epcot’s World Showcase blend from one architectural era to the next. And inside the doors? The charm continues.
But all the charm in the world doesn’t mean a thing if the food isn’t good — and here, it’s good. Almost across the board, we’ve enjoyed our visits to Rose & Crown, no matter whether we dined in the Dining Room or in the Rose & Crown Pub that’s adjacent to the restaurant proper.
On our last visit, we tried a Battered Bangers and Mash dish in the pub, but on this most recent visit, we were in the mood for the Dining Room — and those entrees!
Rose & Crown impresses from the jump, with the exteriors heavy and classic. We love the dark green window casings of the Rose & Crown Pub.

Howdy, pard’ners! We’re traveling back to Disneyland’s Frontierland for a trifecta of favorites at the Stage Door Cafe!
Seriously, this simple little spot holds more Disneyland food legends than you can shake a stick at. It’s pretty much a must-visit every time I’m in Disneyland. (I say that a lot, don’t I? ;-D) Let’s take a quick look around.
And I do mean quick, because Stage Door Cafe is a pretty darn tiny counter service spot tucked around the corner from The Golden Horseshoe. Still, it’s got some cool old-timey details outside, like wrought iron on the doors and lanterns overhead. [Read more…]
