“Downtown Disney” Trivia!

Good morning, my friends!  What a week!

I thought I would go with something easy today.  Easy for me to write and post … and easy for you to read and respond, that is.  I don’t know about you, but I’m still worn out this morning.

Loaded with shopping, entertainment, and dining options, Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World was opened on March 22, 1975.

Sufferer of an identity crisis, of sorts, this complex has been known, over the years, by a variety of names.  Which one of these IS NOT a previous name for Downtown Disney?


K.J.’s Food & Wine “Must-Try List”!

Oh, boy!  Mrs. All in WDW and I are exhausted!

First, a 7-hour ride down to Orlando.  Going TO Orlando is always fun, right?

We patiently awaited their arrival, but, then, we enjoyed a 2-day scramble through Food & Wine with our son and his fiancee’.  Wow, they have some energy!

Fortunately, all of that eating and fun was off-set with a weekend jam-packed with Regatta Club relaxation.  We’ve decided that the Yacht Club is our second-most favorite resort.  Did you see the view from our club-level room?

Up early, yesterday, we made a mad dash to the Orlando airport at 6 AM.  The kids had to fly home to Ohio.  How sad!  That airport’s garage is the most whacked-out place to park that we’ve ever visited!

Finally, we practically “sleep-drove” our  7-hour run back to Atlanta.  Sheesh!  I don’t even have the energy to write!

Fortunately, K.J. Simpson of “Plus the Magic” has that covered for today!  You remember K.J., don’t ya’?  She played a key role on the team of readers that finalized the All in WDW Readers’ 2013 Food & Wine Festival Top 25.

This past Monday, K.J. unveiled her Food & Wine “Must-Try List”.  It is her first trip to visit “the festival of all festivals”.  Please take a few minutes to jump over and see what she has to say.  As a former vegetarian, she has a unique view on how she built her menu.

By the way, it was an honor to “lend her” some of All in WDW’s pictures.  Any time, K.J.!

Food & Wine 2013!

Food & Wine ’13 Flash Report! – Chocolate Belgian Waffle

We ran into this delicious treat this afternoon. Sarah couldn’t resist.

In her words, the waffle had great flavor and was nice and crunchy. Although the dish wasn’t spectacular in its originality, it was quite tasty.


Food & Wine ’13 Flash Report! – Salsiccia

Another very dark shot. Sorry.

Joseph and Sarah loved, loved, loved it. Like I expected, for me, it was “Just OK”.

Frankly, I think I can get Italian Sausage at our local church carnival.


Food & Wine ’13 Flash Report! – Shrimp Ceviche

We actually sampled this one last night. I hate the pictures. Was too dark to take decent shots.

Joseph said it made him think of something like a shrimp salsa. Then, I thought, ‘Hey! I make a pretty good salsa! I’ll add some shrimp!’ Well try it when we return to The ATL.

Oh! It was very refreshing, by the way!
