Are you a Disney foodie?
You know… do you think about where you’re going to eat on your next trip while your countdown is still going for your current trip? Do you have a list of must have snacks, and check them off as you go? Do you plan your park day around where you going to eat later? Are you sure to be up and ready to dial or click at 7am to get into Cinderella’s Castle or Ohana’s? Do you make everyone in your group wait while you snap a picture of their food before they touch it?
If you answered yes to any of those or all of these, then yes my friend you are a Disney foodie! Even if you didn’t, no worries you can be a Disney Foodie in no time, it’s easy and you might be one and not even know it!
Now don’t get me wrong, I love to cook, from simple things that take no time at all, to cooking Martha Stewart style plus searching various websites for recipes and dinner help, BUT when I am on vacation I want someone else cooking for me! So its breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks out!
The 2nd Annual Special Diets IllumiNations Dessert Party is being held Sunday, October 13, 2013 at the France Pavilion at Epcot® in the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. This event is being hosted by the Gluten Free & Dairy Free at WDW Blog and sponsored by Mousekejournals. Other sponsors include yours truly, Chip & Co., as well as Disney Dining, “Mouse”cation and others. The event will include a dessert buffet in which all items will be made to be free of the top 8 common allergens (including gluten/wheat, dairy, egg, soy, tree nut, peanut, fish, and shellfish). Blog author and host, Sarah Norris, says that this dessert party not only helps bring awareness to the increasing prevalence of food allergies and intolerances, but also allows attendees with special diets to meet one another.
“This event is a great way to connect with others in the special diets community and to share tips and tricks about dining safely with a special diet. We had such a great response to last year’s event, that we wanted to start planning the next one right away!”
From an udon noodle bowl at Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure park to turkey pot pie at Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park, the new Mickey Check is now featured on kids’ menus in both quick-service and table-service restaurants across Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Following the introduction earlier this month at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort, the expansion of the Mickey Check helps families easily find nutritious choices, part of an ongoing program that launched in 2006 with nutrition guidelines. The Mickey Check makes it even easier to identify healthier food options in all of the Disney theme parks and resorts.
