The Edison is a highly themed restaurant and entertainment location in Disney Springs’s Town Center. On their Instagram, they announced a very special event that tickets are sure to go fast for!
The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival has just kicked off, but there is already so much to do!
From tasting a variety of delicious snacks from food booths to the Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Unbirthday Party for Kids to live entertainment, the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival has something for everyone. There are also tastings and seminars, including some at Disneyland hotels — and one is even at Trader Sam’s!
Disney Springs is full of fantastic restaurants and shops with unique offerings that you can’t get inside the Disney parks. We love the atmosphere, trying different cuisines, and finding a dessert place to finish off the night.
A perfect spot to sit down and enjoy a good cocktail is The Edison. Inspired by the 1920s, this place is known for its art & design, good food, entertainment, and specialty drink offerings. Now, this jazzy restaurant is introducing a fun way to get together and celebrate this March! [Read more…]
If you’ve been social distancing recently, you’ll know that sometimes being at home 24/7 can get a little frustrating.
Buuut, with all the Disney celebrities performing on live streams, Disney recipes you can make, and Disney+ shows and movies available to binge-watch, there’s still so much to do! And, now you can become a master mixologist without leaving your house with these sets of LIVE tutorials!
And it’s coming even sooner than we realized now that we’ve just seen the tickets for several special events and the Beer, Wine, and Mixology seminars go on sale TODAY!
So, Paddlefish in Disney Springs has been wowing us with innovative mixology from the beginning! Remember that crazy Halloween cocktail where you actually put charcoal in it? And Paddlefish was the first to debut a version of boozy popsicles (yes pls!).
Well they’re at it again on the mixology beat, my friends, with a new way to whet your whistle this weekend!!
We were in the Spring Break mood so we headed to Key West…Disney’s Old Key West Resort that is! After our tropical escape we headed to Saratoga Springs Resort. On our “travels” we found new menus, merchandise, cupcakes, and wine and mixology seminars!
Our visit to Old Key West’s Gurgling Suitcase was full of new menu items!

Beer, Please!, DJ Robertson, Assistant Manager at Todd English’s bluezoo
Returning this year after a successful debut last year, the Beer, Please! seminar will be slightly different this time around.
Wisconsin native Robertson plans to feature beers that are unique — some you wouldn’t necessarily find at your grocery store craft beer section.
Guests will have the opportunity to sample seven different beers, including:
- Orange Blossom Ale from Nevada and brewed with water that is infused with orange blossoms
- Effinheimer Red Ale, a local brew from a Minneola, FL, brewery that has only been in existence for a year and a half
- Widmer Black IPA, a new style of beer with a “dark side” due to hints of coffee flavor, roasted barley, and a high amount of hops
at the Beer, Please! seminar include: Rogue’s Morimoto Soba Ale with their beer-soaked cheddar cheese — and look for Rogue chocolate stout cake and Beer bread, too!
One fun takeaway from the Beer, Please! seminar will be [Read more…]
