We’ve been eating our way through ALL of the festival booths, but Disney doesn’t stop at its outdoor kitchens — they sprinkle in some extra additions! We’ll call these festival bonuses and they’re still entirely worth checking out. That’s why we made our way over to the Funnel Cakes kiosk in the American Adventure Pavilion for a returning star of the Festival!
Today marks the beginning of the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts!
We just LOVE to see it! And a new food festival means one thing: We’re in EPCOT trying every. single. thing! And that doesn’t just mean we’re stopping at pop-up food booths like the Mosaic Canteen in Morocco and El Artista Hambriento in Mexico, it means we’re seeing what year-round EPCOT fixtures are serving JUST for the fest!
This year has definitely had its share of unprecedented situations — and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival has also gotten a bit of a shake-up!
When Epcot reopened to guests on July 15th, the park also kicked off its annual Food & Wine Festival which will run through the fall, making it the longest Food & Wine to date! The festival also includes some elements from the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which began just a few days prior to the park closure.
Now that we know Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival will be returning (in a modified and slightly smaller [but LONGER!] form), we’re looking forward to seeing which food booths will be returning!
Disney has told us a Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will feature 20 signature global marketplaces and will “continue into the fall” making it Epcot’s longest festival of ALL TIME! But with only 20 slots to fill, some of our favorite food booths won’t be coming back this year!
The 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is here at last! You have from now until June 1, 2020, to enjoy topiaries of your favorite Disney pals, special events, and the Garden Rocks concert series to celebrate all things SPRING!
But here at DFB, you know we have our sights set on stuff that’s a bit more edible! Lucky for us, the festival brings many exclusive food booths or “Outdoor Kitchens” that serve up special foods and drinks inspired by the sights, smells, and tastes of the season!
We’ve been having a ball chowing down on EVERY new snack at sip at Epcot’s 2020 Flower and Garden Festival! By now you’re probably wondering how we manage to stay so svelte! It’s all about HOOFING IT to all the food booths scattered throughout the World Showcase!
But in addition to the 16 Outdoor Kitchens, did you know a bunch of additional locations like to get in on the flowery food fun? That’s why we’re headed to the Funnel Cake stand in the American Adventure Pavilion next!
As Epcot enters into the closing week of the Festival of the Arts (you have until February 25 to enjoy this Festival), they are already getting ready for the upcoming Flower and Garden Festival with some special landscaping!
One of the most popular pieces of landscaping for the Flower and Garden Festival is taking shape around the lakes between Future World and the World Showcase!
HAPPY OCTOBER!!! Milder temps have returned to Walt Disney World where we’re checking out What’s New in all four parks, Disney Springs, and a few of our favorite Resorts. AND it’s still high time for Pumpkin Spice, Candy Corn, and All Things Autumn.
Sooo… what are YOU going to be for Halloween? [Read more…]
It’s FUNNEL CAKE TIME!!! But this isn’t just any funnel cake… .
Now, as someone who loves a good funnel cake, I have to admit… Disneyland has cornered the market as far as Disney Funnel Cakes go. Stage Door Cafe offers consistently great toppings right down to the signature Whipped Cream Mickey. And the latest Churro Funnel Cake at Hungry Bear Restaurant really upped the ol’ ante.
Disney World, on the other hand, doesn’t have quite the same Funnel Cake game. While you can always grab a Funnel Cake at spots like Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, Oasis Canteen, or the Funnel Cake Kiosk along Disney’s BoardWalk, toppings are typically pretty standard; usually ice cream or often strawberry along with the classic powdered sugar.
The Funnel Cake stop that does change its options from time to time, though, is the Funnel Cake Stand in Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion. Double Chocolate Funnel Cakes and Pumpkin Spice have rotated over the past couple years as the seasonal options (and they used to offer a Strawberry a few years back), but even those haven’t seen any further variety for some time.
Until now, that is… because a Cookies n’ Cream Funnel Cake has hit the scene at Epcot’s Funnel Cake Stand!
The standbys remain, of course; you can still grab the standard funnel cake with sugar, or add that big ol’ slab of vanilla ice cream or chocolate sauce as additional toppings. But the new headliner is the Cookies n’ Cream. [Read more…]
