So your pals at the DFB have assembled some top tips to help you navigate this most beautiful of special events!
Now to our TOP TIPS!
One of our favorite places in Walt Disney World has changed up the menu a bit! It’s even sporting a new contrasting color scheme!
But this update includes a few big changes to the entrees section. (Don’t worry…the No Way Jose and your other favorite sundaes are still there!)
Thanks once again to AJ’s Dad — my favorite roving reporter — we have some great shots of the new menu and even some pics of the new food!!
Here’s a wide angle pic of the whole menu. Beaches fans will see some definite changes to the style of the triptic.
Now, let’s check out what’s been changed and updated food-wise!
The Fountain Favorites are pretty much the same as before. Guests can still get their favorite flavored cokes here (cherry for me, please!) — and is the raspberry flavor new, Beaches fans?
But the Hot Off The Grill section has definitely seen some changes! From what I can see…this place is getting FAN-CY!
New here are a Bacon Angus Burger served with blue cheese and barbecue sauce; the Beaches Rachel Sandwich featuring [Read more…]
The Imagineers have shared exciting details of the Be Our Guest restaurant opening later this year in the Beauty and the Beast section of the new Fantasyland in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Finally — we have menu and reservation details to share with you! YAY!!! 😉 Scroll down for the deets…
From a massive mural to three themed dining rooms, guests will be immersed in scenes from the 1991 animated film “Beauty and the Beast”. The model of the new Fantasyland shows the restaurant, Be Our Guest, nestled underneath the Beast’s Castle.
Guests will enjoy one of three dining rooms – West Wing, Library, or the Ballroom – in this 550 seat venue. Guests will be able to dine counter-service during the day, and table service at night!
Here are a few more new details…
The menu, as we mentioned will include both counter-service (for lunch) and table-service (for dinner) eats! There are also some fun new details about how Disney is making counter service a bit more civilized. 😉 Read on…
This will be a bit different than what you’re used to with regular Magic Kingdom counter service. Touch-screen, automated terminals (like you can find at Pecos Bill and Contempo Cafe) will be available for guests to customize their orders. For special dietary requests and cash orders, cashiers will also be available.
Once your order is placed, you’ll sit down and your order will be delivered to you on real tableware — no paper and plastic around here. 😉 Guests who have eaten at Wolfgang Puck Express in Downtown Disney will understand the process here.
The counter-service menu itself will include [Read more…]
Once again this year I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing Chef Marianne Hunnel, a long-time Disney Chef who has been in charge of development for the Epcot Food & Wine Festival for the past 7 years!
For a bit of background on Chef Hunnel as well as some info about how the Epcot Food & Wine Festival comes together each year, be sure to read our 2011 interview of Chef Hunnel!
She’s truly one of the most joyful and delightful people I’ve ever spoken with — you can tell this woman is passionate about the Festival and about making sure that Disney guests are pleased with their experience, and that she has a blast doing her job.
The Epcot Food and Wine Festival theme this year is: Taste Your Way Around the World, and it will take place from September 28th through November 12th — a whole 46 days!
As always, you should keep an eye on our 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival page for details throughout the summer. We’re updating all the time over there so that you have the latest news and information.
And, luckily, Chef Hunnel was able to tell us some interesting details that we get to share exclusively with you today! Here are a few fun secrets and tips to keep in mind if you’re headed to Epcot this Fall!
While many of the fan favorite menu items will be returning (yep — the Canadian Cheddar Cheese soup is back!), some booths will feature past menu items with a “twist,” says Hunnel.
For example, the steamed mussels at the Belgium booth will be slightly different than guests remember.
And it sounds like the Australian lamb chop will return with a mint pesto sauce this year (subject to change, of course).
Germany will introduce a twist on the ham and cheese spaetzel with a new schinken noodle gratin dish.
Also, New Zealand has traded in the lamb slider for a lamb meatball with tomato chutney.
There will be around 12 dishes that will be completely new to the World Showcase Marketplace Booths this year! Here are just a few…: [Read more…]
The focus at this food court is going to be customization. From creating your own beef, chicken or veggie burger to building make-your-own yogurt parfaits, there is a wide variety of food that is sure to please everyone!
There will be four large cylindrical ovens called Tandoors, where you’ll get to watch chefs bake bread and roast chicken, shrimp, and veggies. Food + Experience!
One of the popular treats for sure will be naan, a delicious Indian bread that is [Read more…]

Today we’ve got some sneak peeks to share about Flo’s V-8 Cafe, part of the upcoming Cars Land in Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure. AND we have some fun menu news out of the Animal Kingdom in Disney World! Let’s go…
Reminiscent of the small cafes along Route 66, Flo’s V-8 is slated to serve comfort food…including pies!
