Food and Wine News

Disney has released a lot of new information on some returning booths and some new booths for the 2014 Food and Wine Festival.

Four booths are returning for the 2014 Festival.  Africa, Scotland, Hawai’i and Terra will be returning for another go around.  Puerto Rico returns for the 2014 Festival after not having a booth in 2013.

What will I be able to sample at these booths?  Well, full menus have yet to released for any of these booths.  But what’s, AJ Wolfe over at the Disney Food Blog is suggesting could be at these booths.

Africa: A South African Bobotie with Turkey and Mushrooms

Hawai’i: Aulani Sunset with Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum

Scotland: Sea Scallop with Crispy Bacon and Spinach Cheddar Gratin

Terra: Blackened Chick’n Breast and Paperboy Red Wine

Puerto Rico has released a larger portion of their menu.

Papa Rellina – Crispy fried potato balls stuffed with pork and beef

Carne Guisada con Arrez Blanco – Braised Beef with Puerto Rican Rice

Medilla Light – beer

They are not the only booths to release some information.  Hops and Barley have announced a carrot cake with craisins and cream cheese icing.  While the Refreshment Spot could have one of the “must haves” of the festival….The Cronut (with or without ice cream).  The Bean to Bar area is going to have a drinkable chocolate item.  Block & Hans, a place that specialized in craft beer, will have two wines (a Chardonnay and Blanc de Noir.

Port Orleans is two resorts in one.  It is home to the Port Orleans French Quarter Resort and the Port Orleans Riverside resort.  The two resorts are connected into one big resort by the Sassagoula River.  There is also a boat launch at the French Quarter and Riverside which connects the resort to the Downtown Disney area.

As you can see from the map, it is a sprawling resort.  I’m going to start over Port Orleans Riverside (at the top of the map) first and then go into Port Orleans French Quarter.
