It has now been over six weeks since Disney World closed as the country shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, some positive signs are starting to emerge, which may lead to the re-opening of Disney World, along with other regular commercial activities. With that, we thought we would weigh in on how Disney World will be different when it re-opens.
One of the perks of dining at Epcot is the authenticity that you often find while eating in the various countries of World Showcase. Over in the Norway pavilion, you’ll discover Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, which is modeled after the Akershus Castle in Oslo, Norway. We stopped by to have breakfast at this Disney World favorite recently. Much like our other dining reviews, our Akershus breakfast review will cover all things, including the food, atmosphere, and princesses. We’ll document it all with pictures, of course.
One of the most well-known character meals at Disney World is Chef Mickey’s. This character buffet takes place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. While they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we’ll focus on breakfast in this post. As part of our Chef Mickey’s Character Breakfast review, we’ll tell you about the character interactions, the food, décor, and if we feel like it is all a good value.
If you are looking for a character meal at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, you’ve probably looked at Crystal Palace. This character meal features Winnie the Pooh and his friends. The particular context of this post is breakfast, but you can also eat lunch and dinner here with the characters. Here in our Crystal Palace breakfast review, we’ll give you our thoughts on the food, character interactions, atmosphere of the restaurant, all with pictures sprinkled in here and there. We’ll also weigh in on how this breakfast meal works with getting into the park before its official opening time.
In March of 2020, Disney World opened up a new counter service restaurant in the American Adventure pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase called the Regal Eagle Smokehouse. As you might guess from the name, the restaurant focuses on barbeque. What you may not guess is that Regal Eagle Smokehouse is “hosted” by Sam The Eagle from the Muppets. Here in our Regal Eagle Smokehouse review, we’ll tell you about our experience dining here, complete with our thoughts on the food, décor, and pictures of it all.
Trowel & Trellis is back at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival for a second year. This outdoor kitchen is hosted by Impossible Foods, which means that meat alternatives are served here. This makes it an excellent option for vegetarians. As part of our Trowel & Trellis review, we’ll talk about the food and if we think it is worth the price. We’ll have pictures of everything too.
The Hanami outdoor kitchen returns to the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival this year. It sits right along World Showcase Lagoon across the walkway from the Japan pavilion. Here in our Hanami review, we’ll talk about the food and if we think it is worth the price. We’ll have pictures of everything too.
At this year’s Epcot Flower & Garden Festival, we only have one new outdoor kitchen. That is Magnolia Terrace, which is situated over in the American Adventure pavilion in World Showcase. Magnolia Terrace replaces The Smokehouse, which we assume departed because of the recent opening of The Regal Eagle Smokehouse counter service restaurant in the pavilion. Here in our Magnolia Terrace review, we’ll talk about the food and if we think it is worth the price. We’ll have pictures of everything too.
