Though it may seem like it would be difficult to find healthy options around Walt Disney World, there are actually quite a few!
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…]
In Disney Springs and in need of some pizza STAT?
Then look no further than the brand new Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza! (OK, anyone else wondering why there’s an apostrophe in “Fire’d”? Isn’t the apostrophe supposed to stand in for a letter? What letter is missing here? Isn’t Fast Fired OK? But I digress.)
You may already be familiar with Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza if you live near one of its existing locations in the United Sates or Canada.
If not, your next trip to Disney Springs may offer you your first opportunity to try a Blaze artisanal pizza pie fired up in an open-flame oven in 180 seconds (that’s the FAST part!).
Here we go!
Whew, what a week!!
More details surfaced about the Market House Starbucks overhaul in Disneyland! We now know that Market House on Main Street USA will be closing next month. BUT…the awesome 1890’s phone and party line conversation will remain.
I love that piece of Imagineering and am SO glad it will be preserved in the new Starbucks location!
But there’s more news to share…
