This weekend is the perfect time to get dressed up and head over to Disney Springs to celebrate Dapper Day! What’s Dapper Day you ask?

This weekend, April 28-30, guests can celebrate Dapper Day in Disney Springs with special offers at select merchants and specialty food and drinks! [Read more…]

We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…

Boy, oh boy… do we ever have a treat for you today!
Actually, make that TWO treats. Because when we saw a sign at Vivoli il Gelato for the new Creamsicle Float and Nutella Brownie Sundae, it was a no-brainer to to get them both.
Vivoli il Gelato celebrated its one year anniversary in The Landing of Disney Springs in June. Since its arrival last summer, we’ve gained so many new eateries all over Disney Springs that it’s been difficult to have a chance to revisit some of the additions that joined the scene waaaaay back in the day — as in, 2015 😉 . But there is still so much to discover about these relatively new spots that we’re excited to step back into Vivoli il Gelato — the second storefront for the family-run gelato shop based in Florence, Italy.
Here’s the shop (it can be hard to spot, so just head towards the higher profile landmark of The Boathouse, look across the street, and Voila!)…
And here’s that sign we mentioned for the two new creations: The Nutella Brownie Sundae and the Creamsicle Float! [Read more…]
It’s high temps and good times in Walt Disney World this summer season! We’re spotting plenty of frosty summer sips to help you beat the heat, along with all sorts of new restaurants to stop in and take an air-conditioned breather.
And if we’re talking about new restaurants, there’s only one place to start this round of What’s New, and that’s…
I know — it’s as though the openings are never-ending at Disney Springs! The Grand Opening Summer Celebration is ON for this dining, shopping, and entertainment district!
Can you believe it? What once seemed like a never-ending transformation of what was once Downtown Disney to Disney Springs is now complete (though we still have a few more spots to welcome in the coming months!). [Read more…]
We’d like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Vivoli il Gelato!That’s right – the Disney Springs gelateria is turning a year old! This spot has been serving scoops of housemade gelato (with many ingredients imported directly from Italy), sorbet, specialty espresso beverages and baked goods since last June when it first opened its doors. What a difference a year makes, huh? Since Vivoli il Gelato opened, it has been joined in Disney Springs by spots like Joffrey’s Tea Traders Café, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, Morimoto Asia, and The Ganachery… and that’s JUST in The Landing neighborhood alone! All of that makes this first birthday for Vivoli il Gelato even more momentous, seeing as it can now be considered one of the bona fide veterans of the Disney Springs dining locations added over the past year.
And to celebrate the anniversary, the spot will be serving a limited-run flavor for THIS WEEKEND ONLY! While supplies last, Disney Springs guests will have the chance to try a custom-made Tiramisu Gelato, based on the traditional Italian dessert. [Read more…]
2016 is nearly upon us
, and so we find ourselves looking back at all that 2015 had to offer. It’s been an exciting time, full of huge announcements about new venues and attractions and lots of progress on previously announced projects. Before we bid goodbye to one year and welcome a new one, let’s review where we’ve been and see a glimpse of what’s to come!
Star Wars Lands Coming to Both Coasts — And It’s Bringing Lots of Food From a Galaxy Far, Far Away
There was a HUGE disturbance in the Force — the Disney Force, that is — this summer when Disney announced that Star Wars Land would be coming to both Disneyland AND Walt Disney World. The crowds went wild! [Read more…]
