No offense to the holidays, but EPCOT Food and Wine Festival might be the REAL “most wonderful time of year!” The festival has been underway for a few weeks now, and we’ve been eating and sipping our way through it!
Along the way, we’ve been met with all kinds of surprises…some good, and some…not so much. You know the feeling. When it comes to a colossal food fest like this one, there are just some things that pretty much EVERYONE is thinking but no one will say.
It’s no secret that we all love our Disney snacks and we will eat them every time we’re at the parks.
Seriously, give us all the Mickey bars, Mickey ice cream sandwiches, Dole Whips, and corndog nuggets! But what about those times when we can’t get to Disney World? How can we get our Disney snack on at home?
As the days go by and restaurants throughout Disney World continue to reopen, we’re still hoping for a return from one of our favorite dining spots in EPCOT!
Tokyo Dining has remained closed in World Showcase (aside from a limited few days in November), but with continued menu tweaks, we’re anxious that this MIGHT be a sign that a reopening is around the corner!
When thinking about dining for your next Walt Disney World trip, definitely don’t sleep on the resort restaurant options!
Some of the best food on property is available at the Disney resort hotels, so if you have the time and it’s practical, we encourage you to make some dining reservations outside of the parks. Exclusive to the resorts, you have some fun options, like the character meal at Topolino’s Terrace, an amazing view from California Grill at the Contemporary, and the wacky antics of the servers at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Today, we stopped by one of our favorite Disney resort restaurants, and we happened to stumble upon a secret menu item!
Maybe because fall in Florida doesn’t really cool off until November, but Disney is going BIG with a couple NEW seasonal autumn specials in Animal Kingdom!
Bonjour from the Beast’s castle in New Fantasyland! Upon a recent visit to Magic Kingdom, a most magical surprise popped up on My Disney Experience — a last minute reservation to Be Our Guest Restaurant!! Dreams come true, indeed. Let this serve as a reminder to not only book your dining reservations as early as possible, but to also keep checking because you never know what can happen 🙂
Be Our Guest Restaurant is a part of New Fantasyland, and is one of the hardest reservations to book in all of Walt Disney World! No matter how many times you’ve been — and especially on your first visit — it’s always so magical to walk into the Beast’s castle.
Yee-haw!! Howdy from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge! We decided to mosey on over to Whispering Canyon Cafe, because they changed their dinner menu earlier this week.
Whispering Canyon Cafe has long been a favorite spot for comfort food, all-you-can-eat skillets, and rowdy antics from the servers, and we were excited to see what new eats they had to offer!
In fact, it has been a few months since we went to Contempo Cafe for something other than a cupcake! But when I stopped by today (yes, for a cupcake) I noticed something new to me on the menu: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. Well, twist my arm – I just had to order it.
But, don’t worry… I found a fun cupcake too. 😉 Read on to find out more!
The Grilled Cheese is made with three cheeses – Fontina, Monterrey Jack, and Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb – and is on Sourdough Bread. It is served with Tomato Bisque and your choice of fries, homemade chips, or veggie slaw. I opted for the homemade chips.
Let’s go to the beach to check out a new menu item!
OK, we all know that the demise of the Clam Chowder in a bread bowl at the Magic Kingdom’s Columbia Harbour House has been LONG lamented. But here’s a…maybe…replacement?
The Marketplace at Disney’s Beach Club Resort is the counter-service restaurant shared by Yacht and Beach Club Resorts for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We don’t talk about this one much, because there’s not a lot here; and what IS here isn’t much to talk about. ;-D But that said, every once in a while this spot wows us with something unique and delicious.
If you walk into the lobby from the parking lot and take a left, you’ll see the entrance sign on your right. You’ll find a few indoor seats in the Solarium, a peaceful, sunny room down the hall, and outdoor seating along the covered walkway going toward the Beach Club Villas.
