Review: Happily Ever After AFTER Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom!!

When the Happily Ever After fireworks show in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World replaced Wishes just over a year ago, the responses were all over the map. Some were deeply saddened; others were ready for a change. But one thing was for sure: there would be fireworks.

21 Myths About Walt Disney World Food DEBUNKED

The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. ;) Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!

Ready to Head to Disney World?

1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

Whether you’re looking to save stomach space, hate wasting food, or want to save a little money, don’t neglect the kids’ menu!

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.

The Disney Food Trend We Can’t Seem To Escape…

Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort tend to jump on particular food trends and…never let go. Right now, it’s all about the Push Pop.

The craze started slowly back in 2015 during Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival when France introduced the Peach Iced Tea ice pop.

Then France served the Ice Pop Pomme (an apple flavored alcoholic ice pop!) at that year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

TWO Additional Table Service Restaurants Now Serving Alcohol in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

It was HUGE NEWS when it was announced that four Table Service restaurants in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom would start serving alcoholic beverages in late December 2016.

Why? Because — with the exception of Dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant which opened in late 2012 — Magic Kingdom had always been a dry park, in keeping tradition with Walt Disney’s wishes for his original park, Disneyland.

And that’s why it remains relatively big news today that Crystal Palace and The Plaza Restaurant in Magic Kingdom have both just begun serving alcohol as well, with a selection of beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail at each location.
