It goes without saying, though, that not EVERY cake in Disney World is gonna be a hit, as is clearly evidenced by a pair of two new cakes we tried in EPCOT, and spoiler alert: we wished we only ordered one of them! [Read more…]
When the weather allows for it, it can be pretty nice to have a meal in the great outdoors — especially right now while we’re in the midst of a global pandemic.
Health officials, including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, consider dining outdoors to be a lower risk activity than dining indoors. Lucky for us, Disney has a lot of GREAT outdoor dining options, so you don’t have to feel limited. Let’s take a look at all the best places for that sunshine-y meal!
Let’s face it, food is basically its own attraction at Walt Disney World. And especially at EPCOT!
Whether you’re eating your way around the world at the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, or snacking your way through all of the delicious treats at Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in the France pavilion, you’re sure to find something delicious!
Recently, we tried 3 items new to the reopening menu at a fantastic EPCOT spot and we can’t wait to share them with you!
Maybe it’s not such a big secret that we love Disney snacks — lots and LOTS of Disney snacks.
We’ve already put ourselves through the torturous decisions of ranking the Magic Kingdom lands by snacks AND ranking the lands in Animal Kingdom by their snacks. Whew. Well, we’re suckers for a little decisive turmoil so WE’RE BACK to ranking lands by snacks. This time, we’re examining Epcot’s World Showcase — arguably one of the snackiest spots in all of Disney World! WHICH PAVILION’S SNACKS WILL REIGN SUPREME?
Here at DFB, Disney food might just be our favorite thing at the parks! There are so many options it can be hard to choose our favorites — and Disney keeps making it even WORSE by adding new treats and snacks each time we visit! 😉
But even with all of that — we still have a few things we’d love to see come to the parks! We’ve gathered up a few food trends that we think Disney could do really well. We’ve seen some of these pop up in certain restaurants briefly or for special events, but we’re ready for these foods to take the parks by storm!
As many of you may know, Disney World is basically just a giant hard hat area at the moment.
Due to the INSANE amount of construction going on for attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, TRON Lightcycle Run, and new dining locations like Space 220 and Beatrix, many of our followers have started asking us if it’s even worth it to go to Disney World right now. Like — “I’m proposing! Should we even go?” and “It’s my boyfriend’s first time in Disney World and I want it to be perfect. Does it even make sense to go now?”
Happy Sunday! We hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
Grab a cup of coffee (or tea!) because it’s time to sit back, relax, and catch up on the latest Disney food news!

Konnichiwa! And welcome back to another visit to Katsura Grill!
The counter service spot, located in Epcot’s Japan Pavilion, sits higher than the rest of the elevation in the area. Nestled into a garden behind the temple, this spot offers lovely, serene surroundings.
And in the past, we’ve really enjoyed the food here as well — especially lighter, healthier options, like Steamed Veggies and Miso.
I decided to visit Katsura spur-of-the-moment for lunch recently to see if I could still recommend this out-of-the-way counter service location. Come with me as we check out what I found.
If you haven’t fully explored the Japan Pavilion, then make sure to carve out a little extra time to do it on your very next trip to Epcot. There’s lots to take in.
As you make your way through the Pavilion to the back, Katsura Grill sits to the left. You’ll do a little climbing to get up to it, however.
The building itself demonstrates a simple Japanese aesthetic. Whereas the temple in front of it is a showstopper, Katsura is plain and functional, with dark wood accents and a thatched roof. [Read more…]
