Unwrapped Disney Delights

Thoughts While Watching: Unwrapped’s Disney Delights

Hello and welcome back to my Thoughts While Watching series, where I react in real time to Disney media old and new but mostly old! This next one is oldish – and I hope you’re hungry. It’s time to dive into another “Unwrapped” episode and Disney snacks! I gave the first Disney “Unwrapped” episode, simply titled “Walt Disney World,” the TWW treatment just under a year ago. I think it’s from like 2005, which is just outdated enough to be a good time. The subsequent “Disney Delights” episode came out 5 years later, which makes it… also pretty outdated....

My 2022 Epcot Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List

The next best thing to being at Walt Disney World is fantasizing about being in Walt Disney World, and with that in mind, let’s talk about the 2022 Epcot Food & Wine Festival! Every year, without fail, I carefully assemble a post that outlines what foods I plan to eat at the festival. It is always a joyous day when Disney releases the booth menus. Do you, dear reader, find my shortlist as riveting as I do? Never mind! I’m doing it anyway because it serves as a handy cheat sheet when I’m actually in Epcot on those glorious,...

One more post from my April trip and then we can wrap this up, I promise. Real quick, let’s talk about what I ate! I know what you, a dedicated reader, are thinking: You already told us what you ate. Ah, but that was just Flower & Garden Festival items! I have some non-festival food and drinks to review as well. Let’s get to it! Breakfast Sandwich Redux at the Friar’s Nook Hey, remember...

Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Food Reviews!

Trip report time! I’m covering my April 2022 trip for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. Read all the posts in this report here. Onward! Every Walt Disney World trip absolutely mandates an ex post facto food debrief. This year’s Epcot Flower & Garden Festival food booths had so many interesting offerings, I determined they deserved their own post. And now here we are! Read on to see how I felt about the snacks I tried. Since this year’s festival runs through July, it might even help you assemble your own to-eat list. Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon...

My 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival To-Eat List

Okay, it all worked out last time, so I think I can safely share my To-Eat list for this year’s Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. Oh, yeah, didn’t you hear? I’m going back to WDW again for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler! 2022 is the year for big fun and big spending, I guess. But we’re not here to squint suspiciously at my bank records. We’re here to talk about food! Specifically, the samplings that will be on offer in the Flower & Garden Festival food booths. I am nothing if not a wildly anxious organized individual, and...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Food Review Hodgepodge

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! One does not simply eat food at Walt Disney World and then fail to talk about it. Inquiring minds want to know: what did you eat at WDW, and was it worth it? I would never hold out on you! Here’s all the comestibles and libations worth mentioning from my February Disney trip: DISNEY SPRINGS SNACKS We return to Blaze pizza for the first time in awhile, so chosen for its efficient line and carb-heavy pre-race offerings. I was pleased to see they offer...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/11

Time for another trip report! I’ll be covering my 2022 WDW Marathon Weekend trip. Find all the posts in this report here. Onward! Oh, the bittersweet saga that is the last day in Walt Disney World. Some weeks ago I had thought to myself, maybe I’ll get up early the last day and do a strength workout. Luckily I came to my sense the night before and set my alarm to “sleep in” instead. I hopped out of bed, took a quick shower, dropped my bags at baggage check (which is at the old airline check-in desk for departures...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Food Review Hodgepodge

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Once again we finish out this most glorious of trip reports with a food review hodgepodge. In other words, here’s what I think of some foods that are good enough to mention but not good enough to warrant their own posts. It’s a dubious honor, but then again, there are no small rolls, just star bakers. Wait, what? Anyway: TRIP REPORT, BUT MAKE IT FOODIE: ONE THING FROM CENTERTOWN MARKET AT CARIBBEAN BEACH Would you like some very boring food? Give the turkey and cheese sandwich from Centertown...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Fireworks & California Grill 50th Anniversary Dinner Review

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Settle in, kids, because I’m gonna tell you all about what was arguably the best part of the whole trip. Funnily enough, I debated cancelling this reservation, but as it turns out the California Grill 50th Anniversary Dinner is EXCELLENT. Let’s talk through it! We started our experience by checking into the podium an hour early, where the Cast Member stationed there was able to put in – although not guarantee, of course – our request to be seated earlier than our 9:25pm reservation if at all possible....

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Homecomin’

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Look, I know I kinda already reviewed Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ in Disney Springs last time. But Pat was dying to try it and to be honest, I was jonesing to go back myself. It’s that good! And everybody knows it, because Advanced Dining Reservations here are a hot ticket. I was only able to snag a 9pm ADR. You can always check in early, though, which is what we did, and wound up getting seats at the bar about an hour in advance. Score! I might still have...
