We’re visiting two of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom-area Resorts: Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Wilderness Lodge. These Resorts couldn’t be more dissimilar in style, so let’s explore What’s New!
If you’ve been following DFB for a while, you know we LOVE Disney park scavenger hunts! And we thought it would be fun on a Friday afternoon (you didn’t want to work, did you?!?) to share a few of the questions from our Scavenger Hunts with you!
Adding an extra level of fun (that you DON’T have to pay extra for!) to a Disney visit is always welcome, especially if the whole family can get involved together.
That’s why we include four Walt Disney World scavenger hunts — one for each park — in our DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book every year!
Don’t forget, the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining 2013 e-Book is available for $4 off using code 2013, TODAY!!

We’ve had an awesome time at this year’s WDW Foodie Fest!!
Thanks to everyone who joined us at the four events this year. We got the chance to meet lots of readers and colleagues, and had a lot of fun and some great snacks in the process!
WDW Foodie Fest Scavenger Hunts
As you know, we created a couple of Scavenger Hunts for our second annual event! We devised an adventure for adults and one for families with small children.
We’ve had a lot of requests to share the scavenger hunts, so here they are! Print them out and have fun on your next World Showcase visit during the Epcot Food & Wine Festival!
Ready, set… [Read more…]
Our second annual WDW Foodie Fest in Walt Disney World is only ONE week away! (And we just ordered extra Mickey Bars and Mickey Rice Krispie Treats for our October 2nd Main Event, so you gotta come help us eat ’em)!
Whether you stop by to participate in the scavenger hunt, or to just hang out with food and fellow foodie fans, it’s sure to be an awesome time!
Scavenger Hunt Specs
The focus (besides the food!) at the Foodie Fest Main Event on October 2nd will be our 2011 scavenger hunt through Epcot and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. You will need Epcot admission to participate in this hunt. Those who finish will be eligible to win a prize!!
How It Works
You’ll be able to pick up your scavenger hunt pages at the Foodie Fest Registration Tables. Both hunts will require participants to find answers to clues. Use those answers to discover the [Read more…]
Only 18 days until our second annual WDW Foodie Fest in Walt Disney World!!
As you know, we’ve already announced two more WDW Foodie Fest events (for a total of four!), but we’ve got more news today on our Main Event!
WDW Foodie Fest Main Event
Taking place on October 2, 2011, from 11am-1pm at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, the WDW Foodie Fest Main Event is an Open House full of food (just ordered even more Mickey Bars and Mickey Rice Krispie Treats for the menu!) and games (should you have the inclination). All are welcome!
But for those of you who are a bit more adventurous, we also prepare a WDW Foodie Fest Scavenger Hunt through the Epcot Food & Wine Festival! (Guests will need Epcot admission if they’d like to take part in the Scavenger Hunt.)
Scavenger Hunt Sneak Peek
Similar to last year’s Hunt, we’ll have two options: the “Grown-Ups” hunt and the “Family” hunt. Usually, kids over the age of 8 should be able to handle the “Grown-Ups” hunt — it’s just a bit tougher than the “Family” hunt, which is designed for younger kids to enjoy.
When you arrive at the WDW Foodie Fest, grab a Mickey Bar and head on out to Epcot with your Scavenger Hunt clues. Those who finish and get the correct answer to the master clue at the end of the Hunt will be entered in our drawing for prizes!!
This year’s Scavenger Hunt is nearing completion, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek at a couple of the questions! Do you know the answers…?
What is the street address number of La Hacienda de San Angel?
What Funnel Cake topping in the American Adventure pavilion costs just $1.00?
What animal can be found above the [Read more…]
