EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

It’s a foodie’s dream.  Or it could be a gastric nightmare!

Why?  Because there is so much great food and so little time (or room in the tummy) to travel this unique world experience and taste it all!  We finally took the plunge to sample Disney’s EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival during a trip to Walt Disney World in October, and it was quite a treat!

Now in its 22nd year, this annual food festival provides Disney guests with an opportunity to taste the many flavors of the countries that line the World Showcase lagoon in EPCOT.  For 2016, it runs every day from September 14th to November 14th.

Whether you crave mild or spicy, domestic or international, sweet or sour, wet or dry, hot or cold, a hungry traveler can find something to satisfy their cravings and even try something new, especially if you don’t have the means to travel abroad.  Countries from Africa to Continue Reading →

Dining At Walt Disney World

Through all the crowds, screaming kids, long lines and decision-making and the other things that distract from a magical experience, there is one thing that we definitely look forward to at Walt Disney World:

The dining!  The food!  The atmosphere!  We wish that there was a place we could say “don’t go there,” but so far we haven’t found it when it comes to our appetites.

We have had breakfast, lunch or dinner at Be Our Guest, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Fulton’s Crab House, The Hollywood Brown Derby, Boma – Flavors of Africa, Ohana, Liberty Tree Tavern, T-Rex, Yak & Yeti, The Crystal Palace, The Garden Grill, Hollywood & Vine, Rainforest Café, and San Angel Inn Restaurante.  And to think, we have only just begun!  So many Continue Reading →

Dining With A Princess

Ever wanted to have dinner with a princess?  How about dining in her castle, with all its royal, opulent décor and really good food?  We found out that it’s entirely possible at Walt Disney World.  You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in Cinderella’s Castle. Upon entering the castle, Cinderella will greet you and you can have a picture taken with her in the foyer.  Then, while your meal is being served, other Disney princesses will make a royal entrance to visit each table for a meet-and-greet, complete with a photo, if you like.
