Welcome back to EPCOT!
Yesterday was the last day of the International Festival of the Arts, so we visited EPCOT to celebrate! While we were there, we checked out some food updates and more. Let’s get started!
When Walt Disney World reopened, many of our favorite restaurants and snack stands sadly stayed closed.
Casey’s Corner, the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, Woody’s Lunchbox, and many more of the places we love are still not open for business. As the crowds slowly returned to Disney World, we saw some restaurants begin to open part-time, and now one of those locations has reopened completely!
Hello to all our DFB friends! It’s a lovely day for a walk around EPCOT, isn’t it?
We have found LOADS of new stuff, so let’s dive right in! [Read more…]
Although Disney World reopened this summer, not every food and beverage location within the parks reopened. We are starting to see that change, though, as more places begin to open back up!
We’ve recently seen the reopening of Cinderella’s Royal Table, as well as Gaston’s Tavern, both at the Magic Kingdom. And we recently learned that Kringla og Bakeri Kafe at EPCOT will reopen tomorrow!
Maybe it’s not such a big secret that we love Disney snacks — lots and LOTS of Disney snacks.
We’ve already put ourselves through the torturous decisions of ranking the Magic Kingdom lands by snacks AND ranking the lands in Animal Kingdom by their snacks. Whew. Well, we’re suckers for a little decisive turmoil so WE’RE BACK to ranking lands by snacks. This time, we’re examining Epcot’s World Showcase — arguably one of the snackiest spots in all of Disney World! WHICH PAVILION’S SNACKS WILL REIGN SUPREME?
The Disney Skyliner gondola system is brand, spanking new, and with that newness comes some logical questions and needs. What’s it like to ride the Skyliner? Can I bring my stroller on board? What happens if I get stuck twenty feet over Hourglass Lake (oh wait…that already happened!)? Check out our Skyliner FAQs!
But what we need — what we really need — is a Skyliner Food Tour! [Read more…]
If you’re traveling to Walt Disney World and trying to stick to a budget, you’ve already discovered that it can be MAJORLY expensive to eat in the World.
And with so many irresistible snacks to try, you’ll need to figure out which ones give you the most bang for your vacation buck! That’s where we come in! Here at Disney Food Blog, we’ve tried ALL the snacks, and we’ve compiled for you 12 tasty treats that come in UNDER $5! [Read more…]
We’ve successfully made it through the FIRST DAY of the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
From now through November 23rd, the Festival will offer a variety of culinary events around Walt Disney World’s Epcot. Of course, the bites and sips from the Food Booths are a festival highlight. Not sure what items to sample? Here are our Best of the Fest recommendations!
If you’re planning a visit to this year’s Festival, then you’ll want to start putting together your MUST EAT list… and that’s where we come in! The DFB Team taste-tested every item at the Festival to show you the items you can’t miss!
Are you ready? Because it’s time to DIG in!
Let’s start with warm cheese at The Alps! This one is an AJ favorite!! You guys know that I lived in Switzerland for a year, and raclette (melty raclette cheese poured over bread, boiled potatoes, gherkins, and other goodies) as a staple.
And Disney’s actually done a great job with it here! The half-wheel of raclette is melted right in the booth, and shaved off beautifully onto the veggies and bread. Pungent and delicious, this one is a must-do for my cheese-fans out there.
is serving a Spanish-style Paella with Botifarra and Roasted Chicken with a little bit of heat! Flavorful and cooked to perfection!!
If you’re looking for a larger portion, this is a great buy.
For Islands of the Caribbean, Jerk-spiced Chicken with Roasted Sweet Plantain Salad and Mango Chutney Yogurt is a stand-out!
While this dish hasn’t wowed us in previous years, this time around the chicken is cooked on an outdoor grill! You WILL taste the difference. It was a DFB team favorite!
For a refreshing beverage, stop by Joffrey’s for a Citrus Sunshine in Canada. Opt for this drink over the Aulani Sunrise at Hawai’i.
At the Odyssey cart by Joffrey’s, we like the Chai-quila.
At Australia, the Roasted Lamb Chop had great flavors. It’s a twist on the lamb chops of the past at this booth and we loved the update.
For a not-too-sweet dessert, one member of the DFB team really enjoyed the lightness of this option.
The Spicy Hummus Fries at Morocco were delicious, as always, even with the sauce update — we needed more sauce, though!
The flatbread (it was a taco) had a really good kick to it!
Let’s look at two returning favorites. First, The Cheese Studio is worth a visit for the Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake.
This creamy, decadent treat is made better-than-your-usual-cheesecake (and that’s saying something!!) thanks to that hint of bourbon in the caramel sauce.
BUT, the Sparkling Blueberry Wine by Florida Orange Groves Winery wowed us again! [Read more…]
WOW! Our latest visit to Epcot was packed with new finds! We caught up on all of the construction progress in the park, found new menu items, enjoyed some adorable sweet treats, and added more Disney items to our must-buy list!
Take a park tour with us to catch up on all that is new in Epcot!
