What?! A Sushi Donut? Take a Look at the Festival of the Arts!

When I scanned through Disney’s “artistic” festival menus a month or so back, I found myself wondering … what in ‘The World’ is a Sushi Donut?  Well, now, thanks to the great work by Disney Food Blog, I finally know.  Check out their …

Best of the Fest! What to Eat and Drink at the 2019 Epcot Festival of the Arts!

Epcot?  I’ll give you this much … you’re quite creative.  Served by Takumi Table – the Japan Pavilion – this dish is a donut-shaped Sushi featuring Salmon, Tuna, Shrimp, Avocado, and Masago.  It is accented with a Citrus-soy Gelée and has Wasabi on the side.

Find a fantastic picture of this ‘not-so-doughy’ delight in the article linked above, and, then, if you’d like to see all of the items that you can sample at 2019’s Epcot Festival of the Arts, check out DFB’s Food Studios Page!

If that’s not enough, please check out this video (see below) presented by The WDW Couple!  They taste a number of morsels including:

  • Trio of Savory Croissant Doughnuts
  • Seared Corvina with braised Ratatouille
  • Roasted Candied Beet Salad with Goat Cheese Fritters
  • Sweet & Sour Balsamic-glazed Pork Ribs

And, of course, the aforementioned Sushi Donut!

In the meantime, which five (5) dishes would you go out of your way to try?  Leave a comment, here, on this post, on Facebook, or on Twitter, and let us all know!

For me, I’d be craving a handful of plates.  In fact, if I had been able to attend the festival this year, these would have made my 5-item tasting menu!

Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib – Cuisine Classique

Seared Corvina with braised Ratatouille – Cuisine Classique

Oh, No! Sebastian! What Happened!

Hey, folks!  Have you been to Sebastian’s Bistro at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort as yet?  No?  Well, if you’re craving lunch, you better get a move on it.  Check out this report over at WDW News Today …

Sebastian’s Bistro at Caribbean Beach Ending Lunch Service

Sad, isn’t it?  The restaurant only opened about three months ago!  Lack of patronage, maybe?  Let’s take a look at their lunch menu …

Lunch Menu

Doesn’t seen to be overly expensive … by Disney standards, that is.  Plus, some of the items look quite tasty!  The Jamaican Meat Pies as well as the Crab Cake appetizer catch my eye.

Hey!  They also hit Disney Food Blog’s radar!  Check it out at …

Dining Recon: Studio Catering Co. (DFB style!)

Hello, all!  How are you today?  It … is … FRIDAY!!!

I haven’t forgotten about our Food & Wine poll.  In fact, it’s right here!  It’ll stay open for a little while yet because … I just gotta pub this!

If you’re a fan of A.J. Wolfe’s Disney Food Blog, you might have seen it this past Wednesday or Thursday.  They presented me(!) … in “Guest Review: Studio Catering Co. at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!”

Pressed Turkey Club

Yes!  Thank you, A.J.!  Another All in WDW appearance on DFB!

Another?  Yes.  First, A.J. published my “Photo Tour of NEW Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill at the Yacht and Beach Club Resort”.  Mrs. All in WDW and I even took Hurricane Hanna’s home!  Home?  Huh?

Then, we visited the Coronado Springs Resort’s Pepper Market with “Guest Review: Breakfast (and Creme Brulee French Toast) at Pepper Market in Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort”!

Hey!  You want French Toast?  Pepper Market will give you French Toast!  Check this out!  In fact, Kona Cafe’s Tonga Toast can take a hike as far as we’re concerned!  What?!  Well, here’s why!

This week, A.J. and Disney Food Blog’s Editor, Kim LaPaglia, honored me one more time by publishing “Guest Review: Studio Catering Co. at Disney’s Hollywood Studios”!

I want to extend my sincere thanks to these fantastic ladies.  It’s an honor to find my name in print on DFB.  I’m sincerely proud to be part of your pages!

Now, what do I really think about Studio Catering Co.?  Go check it out!

Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria!

Last April, when we ran our poll to determine what restaurant is our Favorite Epcot Table Service, we named Le Cellier as All in WDW’s 2013 “champ”.  But, its margin of victory was ever so slim.

Italy’s Via Napoli, after battling its way past Coral Reef to make it into that tournament’s Final Four, was the Canadian steakhouse’s closest competitor.  Finishing a mere four votes behind Le Cellier, the home of “The World’s” best pizza just as easily could have won the crown.

Via Napoli

Can I make a confession?  Mrs. All in WDW and I have not, as yet, grabbed the opportunity to enjoy Via Napoli’s cuisine.  Oh, the horror!  Truthfully, we’re not the biggest fans of Italian food in the world.  However, we do love pizza as much as anyone.

Having said that, if anyone could convince us to give Via Napoli a shot, it’s A.J. Wolfe and The Disney Food Blog.  I’m not going to steal A.J.’s thunder.  I’ll let you hop over and see for yourself.  From decor to drinks.  From fried mozzarella to pistachio gelato.  You know I’m all about the food.   And, this dining review by Disney Food Blog is epic!

If only to look at the pictures of all that delicious cuisine, please pop over to DFB and give it a look.  The food photos are … well, phenomenal!  Yum!  Great job, A.J.!

All in WDW’s Pepper Market on Disney Food Blog!

I received a note from a reader this morning asking, “I noticed that your posts involve food. I didn’t start reading your … website until about a month or two ago. Do you write about other Disney aspects or just food? Just curious.”

My response was, “Great question! Thanks for reaching out. It’s been a lot of food since Food & Wine. And, I have to admit that I do a lot of ‘recons’ on drinking and dining in Disney. Having said that, no, it isn’t all about food.

Now that Food & Wine is over, I’m working my way back to resorts, attractions, and parks. Polls, trivia, etc. Right now, I’m just catching up on …
