The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will be here before you know it. And this week, The Disney Parks Blog shared an early look at some of the new hands-on experiences planned for this year’s Festival.

For the first time, the most delicious time of year at Walt Disney World has expanded into the resorts, with family-friendly experiences like Culinary Adventures with a Master Chef at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where you’ll create dishes under the direction of a Disney chef. There’s much more to discover in Victoria’s original story.

This week, we also announced that the Disney Parks Moms Panel search for new panelists begins September 7.

As Leanne told us, the application window will open at 12:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 and close at 12:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. The first round application process includes short essay questions, basic information questions, and a sample question similar to what you’d find on the Disney Parks Moms Panel website.

Disclaimer: Disney Parks Moms Panelists receive a Disney vacation as their reward for serving on the panel.

Here are some of the other stories we worked on this week.
