Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at the Epcot Resorts!
And, we’ve got plenty of merchandise and food updates to share with you since our last visit, so let’s dive right on in!
If you’re heading to Disney World with your fabulous Disney squad, you’re going to want to share some good eats — and we’re talking ultimate foods! And you KNOW that we at DFB know all about THAT!
‘s Kitchen Sink is the ULTIMATE ultimate food to share with your Disney squad. This massive sink-bowl is packed with scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream and then topped with every ice cream topping in the restaurant (and a full can of whipped cream!). Yeah, it’s amazing.
The menu says the Kitchen Sink serves four — but if you’re with your squad of more than four, we’re pretty sure you’ll all feel satisfied after this one. [Read more…]
It’s time to take our tour of Walt Disney World Easter egg displays to the Yacht Club Resort! This display is smaller than the one at the Yacht’s Club’s counterpart, Beach Club, and it’s substantially smaller than the fabulous Grand Floridian display. But with a few delicately decorated eggs, it’s still a lovely display, indeed.
Topping it all off is this serene Dumbo egg surrounded by circus peanuts! [Read more…]
If you’re planning to celebrate Easter at Walt Disney World, Ale & Compass at the Yacht Club Resort is offering a brunch!
Similar to breakfast at Ale & Compass, brunch will include the choice of an entree and access to a buffet packed with brunch items like yogurt parfaits, smoked salmon, Parker House rolls, wedge salad, flatbreads, and more! [Read more…]
Wine lovers, take note! The Wonderful World of Wine will be presented at Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort on every second Wednesday of the month.
Guests will “sample the liquid legacies of some of the finest appellations and vineyards throughout California, Italy, France, Chile, Australia and more—and learn about their flavor profiles, winemaking techniques, and soil and climate conditions” from Advanced Sommelier Kristopher Soto.

The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts have so much to offer for the Disney Food Fan from ice cream sundaes and casual eats to a steakhouse! We’ve got all the menu updates for these two resorts here!
Stormalong Bay stalwart Hurricane Hanna’s has had a recent menu update and we couldn’t wait to share it with you!
Disney World has started testing Smart Speakers in select guest rooms at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Currently, guests with a Smart Speaker in their guest room will be able to get information including park hours, bus arrival times, the weather, and more from the speakers.
The Smart Speakers are voice activated, and not linked to any personal accounts, including My Disney Experience accounts. No registration or set up is required if you are in a room with a Smart Speaker.
When Ale & Compass Restaurant opened at Walt Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort last November, it received mixed reviews. The nautical and sparse decor appealed to some but made others feel the space was too stuffy.
The menus raised some eyebrows, with self-proclaimed New England-style options not appealing to, well, New Englanders. We gave it a bit of a tepid review for dinner, and we heard from lots of readers who missed the former Captain’s Grille breakfast buffet.
For one of those contentious topics, Ale & Compass offers a solution. A breakfast buffet is now available! (And we were told that it was due to popular demand from guests. So see? Sometimes your requests do make it all the way to the top!)
And the price is actually OK on this one!
When it comes to getting a great steak at Walt Disney World, there’s no shortage of intriguing options, including our current favorite steak on property: the Wagyu Beef at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs.
And when you visit a steakhouse in the World, you enter with certain expectations for mind-blowing excellence. Today we visit Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort. Will it live up to expectations?
Yachtsman Steakhouse has a solid reputation as a place to get a reliable steak with tasty sides (and awesome pull-apart onion bread…). Located in the subtly elegant Yacht Club, with its nostalgic lobby smell and clean, nautical lines, Yachtsman is a convenient out-of-park place to grab a meal, being proximal to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
