On my family’s most recent trip to Walt Disney World, my wife, her sister and niece dined at The Bon Voyage Breakfast hosted by Trattoria al Forno on Disney’s Boardwalk. I was off with my daughter climbing the four mountains of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (that’s another blog post for another day). My wife knew this was a new and unique experience for our family and took great pictures of her experience for use on the blog.
Yesterday at D23, the Parks Panel presentation took place and A LOT of new information was dropped. So much information that I have to break in down park by park and then what is going on outside the theme parks on the resort side. Let’s dive in head first.
EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival is one of the most popular time of year for EPCOT. Vacationers and Orlando locals, alike, flock to the theme park to enjoy the international cuisine offered by the festival. This year’s festival is the longest on record starting on August 31 and ending on November 13. The festival is filled with special demonstrations, concerts, along with more than 50 booths scattered through the World Showcase and now into Future World. All of these events bring lots of people. What are some good ways to avoid the crowds and get the most out of the festival?
My next Disney trip is coming up in a few weeks (mid-May) thanks to a random day off in my child’s school calendar. It’s going to be a trip of many firsts for our family. A lot of the firsts are because we, typically, travel in the fall and not the spring. It will give me a chance to experience some new things and give me a chance to blog about some new things at Disney as well.
Walt Disney World is a big place. It’s a lot of walking and hurrying to get from point A to point B and, also, a lot of waiting. This is tough on adults but it’s also tough on the children in the parks as well. Chances are there will be a meltdown in the parks from all the walking and waiting. It happens to everybody. What can you do to keep the meltdown at bay or avoid it altogether.
