Here in our ultimate guide to the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival, we’ll give you as much information as we can on all the things you can do at this annual event. The Epcot Food & Wine Festival is Disney World’s celebration of culinary delights from around the world. Some might say that sounds ambitious, but I think it undersells what this festival actually does. We’ll update this page each year as we get new information on the upcoming year’s festival. As we laid out in the beginning, currently this page is geared around the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival.

When it opened in 1991, Disney’s Old Key West Resort was the first-ever Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resort. Over the years, Disney has added numerous other DVC resorts, but Old Key West is the original. Here in our Disney’s Old Key West Resort review, we’ll talk about how this resort is different from most of the other resorts on Disney property. Some of those differences are for the better; you may find some for the worse. It all depends on what you are looking for in your Disney World resort. As usual, we’ll cover all aspects of the rooms, theme, dining, transportation, and more as part of this review.
Territory Lounge is a bar located in Wilderness Lodge at Disney World. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and wanted to write a small Territory Lounge review. We’ll tell you about our experience in hopes that others will visit this cozy nook. This is a wonderful place to enjoy a few precious moments of relaxation and maybe a cocktail at Disney World.
50’s Prime Time Café is an opening day restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (then known as Disney’s MGM Studios). Very little has changed in thirty years of the restaurant operating, but nothing really needs to. 50’s Prime Time Café transports you to a kitchen found in homes in the 1950s, complete with all of the kitschy décor that was used to decorate a house back then. Here in our 50’s Prime Time Cafe review, we’ll examine the restaurant’s theme, atmosphere, and food. As per usual, it will include a healthy dose of pictures of it all too!
The norm with all of the value resorts at Disney World is to have one dining option. These dining options are food courts, which allows the value resorts to cater to a wide array of taste preferences while keeping prices down. The food court at Disney’s Pop Century resort (link) is called Everything Pop.
As we have been making a tour of the Disney World value resorts, we have noted many similarities among the food courts as far as menu selection, layout, and basic décor. While each food court is slightly different, we felt Everything Pop was reasonably similar to other food courts we have seen, aside from a few themed food items that are unique to this location.
Here in our Everything Pop review, we will discuss the breakfast and the lunch we enjoyed, the décor and theme of the food court and our general thoughts on the food court itself.
Flame Tree Barbecue is a counter service location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that serves up various barbecue dishes for lunch and dinner. The meat on most entrées will be smoked, rather than grilled. You’ll find the restaurant located in the Discovery Island area of Animal Kingdom. Here in our Flame Tree Barbecue review, we’ll cover our dining experience. The review will include our thoughts on the restaurant’s theme, food, and that great view you can get of Expedition Everest! As usual, we’ll have plenty of pictures to go along with the review.
It’s hard to believe that we are now less than 30 days away from the return of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Part of that disbelief on our part is that the year is flying by. The other part of it is that Disney has somehow deemed mid-August the right time to start the parties. How better to kick fall off than by torturing cast members and guests alike by making them dress up in Halloween costumes while it is sweltering hot! But I digress.
Disney dropped more Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party details this week (link), so we thought it was time to round up all we know. Disney previously announced that they were making some changes to the party and I guess at the 30 days out mark it was time for them to release some more details. Let’s round up what we know, and maybe we’ll speculate about the party a little bit!
Epcot’s World Showcase is known for showcasing (no pun intended) the culture and food of 11 countries around the world. Situated in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, you will find the San Angel Inn Restaurante. We’ve seen some people describe the food served here as Tex-Mex and I have to say that can’t be anything further from the truth. I say that as someone who grew up eating real Tex-Mex every week…or maybe every day. Here in our San Angel Inn Restaurante review, we’ll talk about the atmosphere, theming and food at this decidedly Mexican restaurant.
Disney World has five value resorts on property. The most recently built property in this class is Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Noted for their cost efficiency, value resorts achieve lower price points by offering a less developed theme, smaller rooms and fewer amenities. This is our Disney’s Art of Animation Resort review, where we cover all of these items, including the theme, general setup of the resort, the rooms and if we think the resort offers value that is worth considering. As per usual, we’ll have several pictures to accompany our review of Art of Animation Resort.
The norm with all of the value resorts at Disney World is to have one dining option. These dining options are food courts, which allows the value resorts to cater to a wide array of taste preferences. The food court at Disney’s Art of Animation resort is called Landscape of Flavors and this is our review of it.
As we have been making a tour of the Disney World value resorts, we have noted many similarities among the food courts as far as menu selection, layout, and basic décor. Just as we feel Art of Animation is a “step-up” in the quality of a value resort, we feel like Landscape of Flavors is superior to the various food courts we have encountered.
