January 31 is the last day to book a dinner reservation at Flying Fish Café on Disney’s BoardWalk, as the signature restaurant will close for several months as both Walt Disney Imagineering and the culinary team reimagine one of the most popular places for dinner at Walt Disney World Resort.
You can expect a whole new look, and the team will be working on a new menu (but no worries, the potato-wrapped snapper remains and seasonal approach stay the same).
The reimagined dining room will still have an onstage kitchen and an airier design, with more room for the popular Chef’s Counter and wine dinners.
Stay tuned for more details as the work gets under way.
We’ve talked about all the Halloween treats in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort, so here’s the rundown of all the seasonal goodies you’ll find in the other three theme parks.
At Epcot, head to Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway pavilion for a Spooky Olaf – a brownie shaped like a ghost covered with white fondant and Olaf’s face. Over in Future World at Fountain View, you’ll find a chocolate owl cupcake filled with chocolate marshmallow and sandwich cookie eyes, and at Sunshine Seasons, a candy corn push pop that’s orange, lemon or mango with layers of vanilla mousse. You’ll find all of these tasty treats the week of Halloween.
From October 4-November 1 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll find a carrot cake with a pumpkin Mickey topper at The Trolley Car Café, ABC Commissary, Pizza Planet, Backlot Express and Starring Rolls Café. From November 2-November 30 in the same locations, there’s a Holiday Harvest Pumpkin Cupcake with a Mickey topper. Both count as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan.
At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, on October 31 you can enjoy at Bat Cupcake at Kusafiri Bakery and Isle of Java. Then on November 26, a fall cupcake debuts at the same locations. Both count as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan. And Tusker House Restaurant will showcase mini-pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cheesecake on the buffet.
Indulge a little, ‘tis the season!
When the reimagined Super Hero HQ opens this fall at Disneyland park, everyone’s favorite web slinger is swinging in for the occasion. That’s right! Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will be making his Disneyland Resort debut in a heroic new character greeting location, where you can snap a photo, grab an autograph or just thank him for keeping us safe from the likes of Doctor Octopus and the Green Goblin!
Super Hero HQ is the West Coast home base of some of the greatest heroes in the universe. It’s the place to go, not only to meet some of those heroes, but to discover the super hero in yourself. You can tour Treasures of Asgard and cross the Bifrost to come face-to-face with the mighty Avenger, Thor. Virtually suit up as Iron Man and check out the Hall of Armor at Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries, play some of the latest games in the Game Center and pick up some Super Hero gear to take with you on your journey home.
Super Hero HQ opens November 16 in the Tomorrowland Expo Center at Disneyland park.
Grandparents often tell us that the best part of a Disney Cruise Line vacation is seeing their grandchildren’s joy throughout the voyage. I recently shared the top five ways to spoil your grandkids on a Disney cruise – things you can do to make any getaway with us extra special.
This week in “Villain’s Gallery,” we’re taking an up-close look at the Wicked Queen from the 1937 film, “Snow White.” When it comes to Disney history, the Wicked Queen is incredibly important! She was the first Disney villain to appear in a full-length feature film and therefore set the bar for all Disney villains who would follow in the years to come.
Avast adventurers! If it be barbecue you’re after, head to Tortuga Tavern in Magic Kingdom Park. Keep a weather eye open, a brand-new menu debuts tomorrow, October 14, at the seasonal Adventureland eatery.
Disney fans, you’re in luck! A new Ink & Paint Cel recently debuted at Disneyana on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park, featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. This particular piece might be titled “Tough Luck,” but I’m pretty sure anyone who chooses to add it to their collection would consider themselves pretty lucky. See for yourself.
If you’ve ever attended a Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you’re probably familiar with the Headless Horseman, who makes his way down Main Street, U.S.A., prior to the step-off of Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade.
Fall is in full swing, and we have so many ways to celebrate the season here at theDisneyland Resort, especially at Disney California Adventure park. This is one of my favorite times of year to spend a day at the park!
In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. And in 2015, unused vacation time in the United States is at a 40-year high. I can’t think of a better time than Columbus Day to encourage each and every one of you to go explore and use up the 429 million vacation days that go unused in America each year. My suggestion? Book a trip with Adventures by Disney!
