Somehow it’s almost November. Somehow I am just about at the 2-week mark before my trip.
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
I’m not going to fight it. Nope. My trip preppin’ continue with FOOD. Sweet, delicious food. (Be sure to check out Alex’s take on pretty much the most important part of vacation.)
I’ll admit I don’t have many big food plans. (Part budget, part Food & Wine opportunities.) But here are a few of the spots I’m looking forward to checking out:
The Landscape of Flavors at Art of Animation
The lunch/dinner menu is the one that catches by eye more with a lot of stir fry and tandoori shrimp, sausage, and squash! Sure, there are the basics like pizza and burgers but I like that Disney has taken some care with the food situation at the newer value resorts. It definitely inspires me to make this a stop, instead of leaving it up to the parks to fill me up.
It’s always fun to revisit eating spots too. I can’t remember the last time I went to Sci-Fi but it was always a top stop during family trips. (I can’t get enough of that movie loop!) It’s been about six years since I’ve been to Ohana, and, unlike my first trip there, it will be nice to be with a big group. I know there have been a lot of changes to the menu lately, and, of course, ambiance isn’t at a high because of the Polynesian renovation so I’m definitely curious. (But hey, I get to drink out of a pineapple. Win!)
Food & Wine stops
Working on my Kill Refurb Marry post this month REALLY helped with my Food & Wine wishlist. Most of the time I don’t prep ahead of time and I think that was part of my failure at making the most of the festival last year. It gets so crowded and so frustrating that I’d rather just avoid it. But not this year. Gimme some Desserts & Champagne, let me say hello to the Puerto Rico kiosk, and try the new escargot offering in France. (Man, I’m bummed my old standby is gone.) Sidenote: is anyone confusing Food&Wine with the Flower&Garden festival now? I swear, my brain can’t handle both.
Some other food thoughts:
- Give up on the Citrus Swirl (the line at Sunshine Seasons always takes forever) and just get a Dole Whip.
- Will I have time for a Waffle Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow (Magic Kingdom)? I hope so.
- ICE CREAM ICE CREAM ICE CREAM
- Are we there yet?
- DO NOT GET HANGRY.
Hope this post made you hungry… I’m going to have some crackers now and pretend it’s a Food & Wine delicacy.
Say hi to my vacation twin: Alex at Practically Imperfect to hear about her Wine & Dine trip AND her Cruise. (Still jealous.)
