We had a case of wanderlust this week, and instead of getting out the passport and packing, we just hopped over to spend the day in Epcot. Our journey started with some time spent in Future World, followed by a trip around the World Showcase. And boy, did we find a lot new eats and buys for you on this “trip”!
It’s been another news-filled week for the Disney food world! Here’s the latest:
- Via Napoli has opened in Epcot. We have pictures, menu, and a reader review for you.
- Candlelight Processional Dinner Package booking will open on August 26th
- Le Cellier Dinner will require 2 Disney Dining Plan Table Service credits beginning March 2011. Here is more info about the 2011 Disney Dining Plan.
- Wine and Dine Half-Marathon and 5K Course Maps and Medals have been announced
- The WDW Tomorrowland Lunching Pad has added specialty hot dogs and nixed Turkey Legs from the menu
- Disneyland is getting a permanent Cupcake Store
