(Although you can get it year-round, one of my all-time favorite fall treats is the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate at Ghirardelli’s Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop at Downtown Disney. It’s a must try!).
  2. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Begins September 25 – This fan-favorite event will run September 25-November 16, 2015 at Epcot. In honor of it’s 20th year, the festival will expand into Future World area of the park for the very first time and include new offerings, such as booths inspired by the cast members of “The Chew,” and a brand-new Rockin’ Burger Block Party, and much more.

Six Tips for Dining With Kids on a Disney Cruise

posted on September 10th, 2015 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line

Since dining is one of my favorite parts of a Disney cruise, I have a quite a few tips I like to share with family and friends to make their experience the best it can be. Over the next several weeks, I’ll be sharing those dining tips with you, starting today with suggestions specifically for those of you traveling with children.

Mealtime on a Disney cruise vacation is a great opportunity for families to connect, and there are things you can do onboard to enhance that quality time together. Here are my top six tips for dining with kids on a Disney cruise …

Royal Court

1. Let your servers serve you. All you need to do is sit back and relax. Do the kids need their food cut up? Your servers are happy to do that! Do you need a wine-pairing recommendation? Your dining team is at your service! The beauty of having them stay with you as you visit different restaurants and enjoy new menus each night is that they can provide personalized service and hospitality tailored to your every desire and need.


2. Say “yes” to your kids playing at dinnertime. Mealtimes are meant to be memorable entertainment experiences on a Disney cruise, which is why we include a full course of fun with dinner shows at Animator’s Palate. When else can you talk to a sea turtle with your mouth full or draw your imaginary friend to dance on screen beside Disney characters? Even your servers get in on the fun with magic tricks that are sure to stump the whole family.

Animator’s Palate – Drawn to Magic

3. Use your electronics at the dinner table. Gadgets and gizmos might typically be a “no-no” during family dinner, but some rules should be broken on vacation. Dinner is an opportune time, while you have your family’s attention, to plan out your schedule for the next day using the mobile Navigator app. Plus, with surprise appearances from Disney pals like Mickey and Crush at Animator’s Palate, bringing your camera to dinner is a must.

Champagne Brunch at Remy

4. Reserve an adult-only brunch or dinner at Palo. Our signature restaurant at sea is known for its exquisite modern Italian specialties during brunch and dinner. Set aside time to experience one (or both!) while the kids eat in the youth club. Chances are you’ll have more energy for your family after you’ve been able to recharge with your significant other over outstanding cuisine, first-class wine and sweeping ocean views.


5. Dress for the occasion. Themed dining provides a one-of-a-kind experience every night. The Pirates IN the Caribbean menu celebrates “a pirate’s life for me” with Caribbean cuisine, and wearing a bandana and eye patch during your meal is highly encouraged! On 7-night or longer cruises, the Captain’s Gala menu gives you a great excuse to dress to the nines for a family photo opp before savoring world-class cuisine such as baked lobster tail and oysters Rockefeller.


6. Take lessons from your kids. Dinner is often an opportunity for parents to teach children manners at the table. But on a Disney cruise, it’s your chance to learn from the kids. Notice how they’re carefree and energetic and can’t stop smiling? See how they never say no to dessert? That right there is the “proper way” to behave when you vacation with us!

Next week, I’ll share with you a day-by-day dining guide for four nights on the Disney Dream. Until then, let me know if you have tips to add for dining with kids on a Disney cruise.

Pumpkin Love: 6 Favorite Recipes from Disney Parks Chefs

posted on September 10th, 2015 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer

We love anything pumpkin flavored, and while you can find pumpkin year-round, fall is the season when we find excuses to add a dollop to most any dish, sweet or savory. Below, Disney Parks chefs share six favorites, starting with this favorite pumpkin bread from Goofy’s Kitchen at Disneyland Resort.

Goofy’s Kitchen Pumpkin Bread
Makes 9-inch loaf

1 cup cake flour
3/4 cup bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/4 teaspoons nutmeg
2 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup raisins

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
  2. Whisk together cake flour, bread flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree, water, and oil in a medium bowl. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined; do not overmix. Stir in raisins.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  5. Turn loaf out of pan onto a wire rack to cool.


Pumpkin Cheesecake
This was a big hit last fall at the Disneyland Resort. The graham cracker crust with a pinch of ginger, classic cheesecake filling and a drizzle of chocolate on top create a trifecta of yum.


Pumpkin Twists
These twists from Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks are served year-round with seasonal fruit, such as strawberry, but the pumpkin version is like a portable pie – flaky puff pastry with a pumpkin filling that you can eat on the run.


Pumpkin Muffins
The Disneyland Resort pastry chefs must make a gazillion of these during the fall – a moist muffin with sweet golden raisins and a crunchy streusel topping. Breakfast or dessert, you decide.

Pumpkin Beignets From Club 33 at Disneyland Park

Pumpkin Beignets
We might consider these hot squares of fried dough with a maple glaze to be the ultimate indulgence, a recipe we scored from Club 33 at Disneyland Resort (you could skip the maple glaze, but we say, go for it!). Pair with a dark coffee or your favorite tea any time of day.

Pumpkin Mousse with Ocean Spray Craisins and Orange Sauce at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Pumpkin Mousse
This was an Epcot International Food & Wine Festival favorite, and is a fabulous stand-in for pumpkin pie if you want something a little different. Crunchy streusel, creamy pumpkin mousse, spice cake and easy orange-apricot sauce create layers of flavor.

New Cookbook Celebrates 20 Years of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

posted on September 9th, 2015 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer

As you make your way around World Showcase Lagoon and over into Future World for new delicious tastes and sips of flavors from around the globe, we can bet there will be a dish or two that you might want to re-create at home to share special memories. The “Epcot International Food & Wine Festival” cookbook for 2015 is a little heftier than the usual collections of recipes we share – it also includes 50 pages of history, photos and memories from the last two decades.


The recipes go all the way back to 1996 and include dishes that represent the festival through the years. And for 2015, Epcot Executive Chef Gregg Hannon is returning some classics to the Marketplace menus, such as pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese puffs), apple strudel in Germany, spicy chicken sausage with polenta in Canada and the lobster roll at Hops & Barley.

We’ve got those recipes, along with dishes that have never left the menu, like Canadian Cheddar Cheese soup, Belgian waffles with berry compote and bo ssam in South Korea. A little bit of history, and a lot of good eating in 20 years.

You’ll have 53 days, September 25-November 16, to enjoy the food, live entertainment, demos and seminars. Go to to start planning! Meantime, here’s a recipe from the book to whet your appetite.
