We’ve tasted some truly delicious treats this week — Peanut Butter Pie, anyone? — but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Details also continue to emerge about two of Fall’s hottest Disney food events — the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival and the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic. The latter takes place over the course of one weekend during the Festival — which lasts more than seven weeks!
I know you’re anxious to get all the info, so let’s get to it!
Disney Food News
- We now have full menus for The Causeway at the 2015 Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic.
- We also have confirmation that the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Premium Package is back for 2015, with a few notable changes.
- We’re offering a Sneak Peek of merchandise for the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival.
- We review the brand-new-to-us Peanut Butter Pie and other treats at Disney’s Contempo Cafe.
- One of our favorite spots at Epcot, the Garden Grill Restaurant, will begin serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner beginning this Fall!
- And we begin and end with the Swan and Dolphin, as we bring you news and a review of some Food Trucks (or trailers, anyway) that are being tested at the twin resorts.
