I have been working on the new website so it has been a while between posts, but I have some Disney updates to share with you!

Beginning Nov. 8, 2015, you can enjoy character dining all day long at Garden Grill Restaurant at Walt Disney World. Served family style and all-you-care-to-enjoy, the menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner are inspired by the garden-grown theme of The Land at Epcot. And while dining, you can meet popular Disney pals, including Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Chip and Dale, as they revolve around vibrant views from the Living with the Land attraction. (Characters are subject to change).  This is exciting to me.  Way back in 2007 we had lunch at Garden Grill and enjoyed it but they quit serving lunch after that and we were never able to work it into our schedules on later trips.  Hopefully we can try it out next trip!


Epcot International Food & Wine Premium Events are able to be booked!  You can enjoy a variety of top-tier experiences at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World Sept. 25-Nov. 16, 2015.

From wine pairings and seminars to culinary demonstrations and signature dining experiences, Premium Events take you on an unforgettable journey of cuisine and culture. And this year, you can enhance their culinary adventure with new experiences such as the Rockin’ Burger Block Party, Party for the Senses Yelloween Masquerade, and Eat to the Beat Dining Packages.
