Geez! It’s only just Halloween, and Christmas merchandise is already creeping into Disney’s gift shops? Really? Wow!
My friends? Panchito’s at Coronado Springs …
Which one should we vote for, folks?
As we entered Coronado Springs this morning, we were met with a pleasant surprise. They want us to vote!
As popular as she is, it’s hard to deny Elsa, but I do have a fondness for Sorcerer Mickey.
Then, again, take a look at that burger and fries!
Which Cast Member carved the best pumpkin, folks? Leave a comment and tell us who to vote for!
Digging through my files, I found this old, Christmas-time view of Epcot from World Showcase.
I just love the way I caught the lagoon, Christmas tree, Spaceship Earth, and clouds. Don’t you?
With the holidays around the corner, it leads me to ask … have you ever visited The World at Christmas? What are your favorite memories?
I know. Finally, right?! I have never waited this long to announce my Final Top 25!
What’s the story this year? Well, it boils down to the fact that I knew we would be able to make several trips back to Food & Wine this year … and, a whole lot of personal indecision.
Frankly, folks, in the last month, the All in WDW Top 5 has changed and been re-arranged more times than I can count!
Anyway, with roughly two weeks of festival left, let’s, first, quickly review my Pre-Festival Top 25 …
So, after three visits to World Showcase, what was the result of all my re-ranking and re-organizing? Well, here it is! The Final All in WDW 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Top 25! Oh, their pre-festival ranking is in parenthesis. Click on each dish’s name to get to the DELICIOUS part – the pictures!
How in “The World” did it shuffle around so much? Well, let me tell you all about it …
Wait! Let me really tell you all about it … on the WDW Magical Main Street Memories Podcast! Click here for a “LIVE” explanation!
What happened to Japan’s Teriyaki Chicken Steamed Bun, China’s Beijing Roasted Duck Steamed Bun, and Farm Fresh’s Griddled “Yard Bird”? What powered Hawaii’s Kālua Pork Slider “comeback”?
Why did China’s Mongolian Beef Steamed Bun lose its “title”? And, how in The World did New Zealand’s Lamb Slider skyrocket to #1?
Listen to the show and find out!
Oh, OK. No catastrophic meteorological events are headed WDW’s way. I didn’t mean to sound that alarm.
Mrs. All in WDW and I stopped by for another visit to Hurricane Hanna’s last weekend. That’s all this post’s title meant.
You remember, Hanna, don’t you?
Most times, when we visit, we’ll order off the bar’s menu. Their seared tuna is a particular favorite of ours.
And, so are their pork sliders.
But, this time around, we checked out the counter service’s menu.
We found our choice to look phenomenal and be generously loaded with shrimp, scallops, and lobster.
If it were us, though, we would have preferred much more seasoning … even if it were just a more solid dose of salt and pepper.
As always, we enjoyed our visit to Crescent Lake.
Stormalong Bay is scenic and fun. The Yacht and Beach Clubs are beautiful. And, Hanna’s is a great place to chill with a beverage and a snack.
