What a week! We had a great time visiting with family and friends over the past weekend at WDW. The days were long and hot, but I got a lot done for the blog. This weekend has brought and is bringing some solo park time for me so I can get some goals for the blog accomplished. But back to the food!
We kicked off our reviews this week with Dinner at Contempo Cafe. We also revisited Fairfax Fare for a quick breakfast, followed by Pizza Planet for lunch. We found ourselves back at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe for another lunch, but managed a (relatively) quiet dinner for just the two of us at ESPN Club.
A new Epcot Cookbook will be debuting at Food & Wine this September, and I’m really excited! Instead of the normal cookbook the festival has sold over the years, this one will also feature recipes from the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival as well as Holidays Around the World.
Tickets for Culinary Demonstrations, Beverage Seminars, and Mixology Seminars at the F&W Festival this fall have gone on pre-sale for Tables in Wonderland members, annual passholders, DVC members, and Golden Oak residents. All other events will go on sale on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 7:00am, so set your alarm! Stay up-to-date with all of the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival news by visiting our dedicated page!
As a big Haunted Mansion fan, I’m very much looking forward to the new Haunted Mansion Merchandise coming this fall to the parks. I adore the dishes!
