Best Week Ever Disney Springs

The end of July 2015 has certainly earned a spot on my Best Week Ever list, because just days ago my brand new book, The Unofficial Guide to Universal Orlando, emerged from the printer on actual dead trees, and will be available for purchase early next month. What better way to celebrate such a milestone than with a wet walk around the worksite known as Disney Springs?

 

Unlike Derek Burgan, I’ve been avoiding the area formerly known as Downtown Disney like the plague since construction began on its massive re-imagining. This week, I picked a blustery afternoon to make my return to Walt Disney World’s shopping and entertainment complex in the hopes of experiencing some of its newest additions.

 

The changes began long before I landed at Disney Springs, as electronic traffic signs detoured me away from my usual direct route to the parking lot behind Cirque du Soleil.

 

Instead, I found myself on a “scenic route” behind Old Key West and Saratoga Springs, in a land where golf carts roam,…

Disney Dining: Photo Report of the Fantasy Fare Food Truck at Downtown Disney

by on January 12, 2015

The Downtown Disney Food Tuck Park opened in late November of last year, after a lengthy delay. It opened under a new name, Exposition Park, and it does not have the elevated seating which was shown in the early concept art. Exposition Park is located in DTD’s West Side, directly next to Bongo’s Cuban Cafe. The trucks you will find at the park vary by the day, but you will generally find 2-4 of Disney’s own trucks, and an occasional third party vendor (such as the Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, which has also been seen at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.) While we were there, Exposition Park had three food trucks available, Namaste Cafe (based around foods from Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge), World Showcase of Flavors (foods from Epcot), and Fantasy Fare. Superstar Catering, which features items from Disney’s Hollywood Studios, was parked in the Marketplace next to the World of Disney Store.

Walt Disney World Newsworthy Notes – 12/3/14

by on December 3, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve brought you the Newsworthy Notes, but now I have a whole bundle of new small Walt Disney World news pieces to share with you all! So, let’s jump right in and get to it.

  • For those who will be in the Magic Kingdom during the beginning of next week, you’ll be able to catch the taping of the Disney Christmas Day Parade. (I mean the Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration.) The parade will be filmed on Monday, December 8 and Tuesday, December 9.
  • Guests can now make Advanced Dining Reservations for the Morocco Pavilion’s Spice Road Table. In addition, the restaurant has seen an updated menu; while most of the tapas options are still offered, now as appetizers, the restaurant is also serving full entrees as well. The new entrees include: Mix Grill Skewers – Beef and Chicken skewers; Coriander-crusted Rack of Lamb; Yellowfin Tuna; All Natural Roasted Chicken; and Mediterranean Vegetable Platter. Hopefully these changes will cause more guests to visit this fledgling Epcot restaurant.
