New flatbreads are now available at Pizzafari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We love the Mediterranean with red pepper, olives, and a pesto drizzle, topped with a fresh salad of arugula, red onion and tomatoes—or try something new, like the Cheeseburger Flatbread topped with ground beef, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and a drizzle of ketchup and mustard.

Also at Disney Springs, Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza has opened its doors in Town Center. Customize your artisanal pie by choosing from over 40 delicious toppings and sauces – or choose one of their signature pizzas (my favorite is Green Stripe)!

  • I can’t wait to try Chef Guy Fieri’s culinary creations in May!!!! Awesome blog. Glad I found it!!

  • Oh my gosh, those costumes are literally the CUTEST! If Disney knows how to do one thing right, it’s celebrate the holidays. So excited!

  • I’m looking forward to Minnie’s Hollywood and Vine in October!!! So excited for the Halloween happenings around WDW :). Happy to see that the funnels cakes have come back to the Oasis.

  • Rachel after seeing you blog I made a reservation for Hollywood and Vine for 530pm on Sept 3rd So will I see Mickey and Minnie dressed up in their Halloween costumes? What date does it start and what date does it end? May make more reservations.. Thank You

    • Minnie’s Halloweentime Dine will begin on September 12 and run through November 6. On September 3, you will see Minnie’s Summertime Dine. If you wanted to see the Fab 5 in their Halloween costumes, you may want to adjust your reservation!

  • LOVE Mickey and Minnie’s costumes for Minnie’s Halloween Dine at Hollywood and Vine!!! I already have reservations for next month. Any chance of getting a preview of Daisy, Donald, or Goofy’s Halloween outfits? Can you at least tell us what they will be dressed as? Thanks.

    • Aren’t they fa-boo-lous? Goofy will be dressed as a creepy cowboy, Donald’s costume is out-of-this-world and Daisy’s costume embodies the spooky spirit of the season.

  • Rachel, your articles always make me so hungry. 🙂
