Fried Herb and Garlic Cheese from Tune-In Lounge/50’s Prime Time Cafe
What a week! We got some Hollywood Studios time in and visited Tune-In Lounge, Writer’s Stop, and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater! Trattoria al Forno released some details on the attire to be worn by Cast Members, giving us a glimpse of the decor of the restaurant. Over at Disneyland, Trader Sam’s will be hosting a Mahaloween Luau. We added some Star Wars in our diet with R2-D2 Rebel Raspberry Sours. Big River will be hosting their annual Oktoberfest Tapping Party on the 19th. Finally, Epcot International Food & Wine Festival-goers will want to give the Food & Wine Tracker a go on their iPhones (non-iOS-ers can utilize a web version!).

2014’s Flower & Garden Coverage
It almost feels like the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival just ended, but Amanda of Disney Every Day has the scoop on 2015’s dates!
Riverside Mill’s odd Muffuletta Flatbread
Gluten Free diners can enjoy WDW a little bit easier with the addition of Gluten Free-specific menus on property. Sarah of Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW has the menus from Kona Cafe and ABC Commissary. She also has a review from Riverside Mill Food Court at Port Orleans Riverside.
Thank you for stopping by, and we’ll see you tomorrow!
The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival begins in ONE WEEK, and David Kennedy of disneypodcast.net wants to make your experience at the Festival a little bit easier to navigate. He’s created the Food and Wine Tracker app for iOS (iPhone), and it’s available for FREE.
Dave decided to create the app per a friends suggestion to make an app that makes the event a bit more social. Whether you’re at the festival or just seeing what’s happening, you can see which dishes are trending and what’s getting good reviews. Did you try a dish? You can give it a thumbs up or down, write a review, or rate it on a 5-star scale. There’s also an option to Tweet about it, and it uses #EpcotFoodAndWine as the hashtag so you can see what others are tweeting about during the Festival. For those without iOS, there is a basic web version here you can access in your phone, tablet, or computer’s browser.
Put down your Pumpkin Spiced Everything and raise your glasses! It’s time for Big River Grille & Brewing Works’ Oktoberfest Tapping Party! The party will be held Friday, September 19th from 5:30pm-8:30pm at the Big River located at the BoardWalk Inn.
There will be $2 bratwurst sandwiches and hot pretzels, as well as $3 Oktoberfest Bier in the Bier Garden. There will be music and a giveaway with proceeds benefiting Give Kids the World.
While I’m not sure this is still the case (as it was when I attempted to go a few years ago), the food, beverages, and raffle tickets in the Bier Garden, which is set up outside on the boardwalk, are cash only. Hopefully they’ve enhanced their technology over the years. Also, get there early, as the limited seating fills up quickly, and people like to save WAY more seats than the number of people in their group that is present. They also don’t like to share… We’ll just grab a glass inside the restaurant sometime. :)
It’s been a few years since Disney acquired Lucasfilm, and we Disney fans are no stranger to finding Star Wars merchandise in the parks. This series of candy isn’t new to the market, nor is it exclusive to Disney, but I thought it would be a fun review and bring a little more Star Wars to the blog, which, in our nearly 3.5 year history, only first did this past summer with the Yoda Cupcake sold during Star Wars Weekends!
Now, I can’t say I’m a Star Wars megafan or anything (I’m more into Indy and Labyrinth), but I did enjoy the movies – it’s been a while since I’ve seen them, though. I can say that I have a soft spot for R2-D2, so a little tin of him filled with candies was an easy choice to add to my shopping basket.
