Today we’re bringing you a guest review from our DFB pal Jennifer Elliott, who attended the new Rose & Crown Tea Experience in Epcot’s World Showcase! This weekend, I had the privilege to attend The Rose & Crown’s brand new Tea Experience. It began promptly at 9:45 am, so make sure to allow plenty of time to walk to the United Kingdom Pavilion.
We recently we dug our spoons once more into Kaki Gori, the Japanese Shaved Ice served at Kabuki Cafe. For years now, it’s been THE go-to treat as far as frozen options in the Japan Pavilion go, perfect for the cooling down in the current summer heat.
But did you know that Japan has got another — perhaps more authentic — frozen snack to keep your temperature down? It’s called Mochi. And though it’s been hanging around at the carts in the pavilion on-and-off for years, this additional cart we spotted recently seems to be mostly Mochi-centric. [Read more…]
It truly is one of the most beautiful times of the year at Epcot, now that the 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival has officially begun!
From now through May 29th, Epcot guests will enjoy over seventy Disney-themed topiaries all over the park, special exhibits and seminars for all the Green Thumbs (and those aspiring Green Thumbs!) out there, and the Garden Rocks Concert Series (complete with Dining Packages this year). [Read more…]
As you well know, one of my favorite things to do while I’m in Walt Disney World is to poke into all the little shops within the parks and resorts. I’m always finding new things! From delicious candy and take home treats to cute decor and souvenir options, who can resist?
Recently, I was on just such an expedition to the Yukon (okay, really, I was just in the Canada Pavilion), when I decided to wander through these, some of my favorite shops, once more. And you will never guess what I found!
Tim Horton’s Comes to Epcot!
If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I originally hail from way up north. Like, “almost-in-Canada” type north. And my parents, when they aren’t traveling all over the place, still call that corner of the world home.
Well, since we’re ALMOST in Canada where they live, one of AJ’s dad’s favorite rituals when he’s home is stopping into the local Tim Horton’s for coffee and a bagel each morning. So I couldn’t wait to show you this new (to me, anyway!) display of Tim Horton’s favorites that we spied in the Canada Shops!
Right there alongside bagged candies, and beneath a selection of maple syrup, you’ll find them. Remember the Covered Bridge Potato Chips that we showed you a while back? (Ketchup-Flavored! Yum!) Well, they’re right beside those!
When I visited, there were four different beverage options. So Dad would have a great selection to choose from!
While you can’t pick up a bag of coffee for brewing back in your hotel room, there are some [Read more…]
