Flavors

There is nothing in the world like Disney Popcorn.  There are some new and interesting flavors, such as Truffle, Churro, and Sriracha Kettle Corn on the shelves at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Have you had the opportunity to taste some of these new popcorn flavors?

Truffle flavored popcorn is an interesting flavor combination.  If you enjoy truffle flavored anything, then you must try this popcorn. One of the most popular Disney Snack items is the Churro.  This popcorn offers just a hint of Churro and if you are a fan of the Churro then this popcorn is for you.  If you like a spicy-sweet combination of flavors then the Sriracha Kettle Corn is an excellent choice.  The spicy flavor of the Sriracha, added to the sweetness of the Kettle Corn offers a sweet and spicy kick without being too overbearing.

20160911_095929 20160911_095916 20160911_095902

Some of the more popular flavors are also available.  The Confetti popcorn is a fun and fruity option that makes a perfect gift to bring home for family and friends.  Disney Cheddar flavored popcorn is salty and leaves your fingers orange; as all good cheddar popcorn should. Get your toothbrush ready for use after you eat the Caramel popcorn.  This sweet and chewy popcorn flavor is delicious, but it will stick to your teeth.

20160911_114658 20160911_114641

Disney Kettle Corn offers an excellent sweet and salty combination.  The flavors offset each other and is a favorite amongst many guests.  My personal favorite is the Zebra Stripe Popcorn.  Chocolate drizzle over caramel popcorn is a delectable combination.

20160910_155001 20160910_155006 20160910_155012

If you can’t quite decide on a flavor option you may want to pick up a seasonal variety bucket of popcorn.  This bucket offers caramel, cheddar, and kettle corn in one large souvenir bucket.  Once the popcorn has been eaten, you can wash and use the bucket to store items or display as a decorative element.

Popcorn makes a fun gift to bring home for yourself, your family, and your friends.  Disney Popcorn can also add to your Disney themed movie night at home.  Just pick a favorite Disney movie, add the popcorn to some Disney-themed bowls, and enjoy a taste of Walt Disney World right in your own home.  Make your Disney Popcorn experience interesting by bringing home a variety of flavored popcorn to sample with family and friends during your Disney-themed evening.

Which popcorn flavor will you try on your next visit to Walt Disney World?  Please leave  your comments in the box below.

Disney fans love seeing Disney Parks represented in their favorite television shows, so we’re excited to let you know that Disney has announced that Wheel of Fortune will again be doing a Disney-themed week, starting tomorrow, September 26th. Disney released details about the upcoming episodes:

The shows feature fantastic prize trips to both Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort – a pretty good reminder that it’s time for you to be thinking about planning your next magical vacation, right? Plus, you’ll see Grandparents who are all big Disney fans, clever puzzles, and many more surprises. And… there’s even a chance for you and your gang to win a magical Grand Adventure at Walt Disney World Resort, just for tuning in! (Details on that are here.)

We were thrilled to host Pat, Vanna and the whole “Wheel” Crew here at Walt Disney World Resort this summer, when we filmed all new content for this year’s shows.

And, because I know you love it when we can “lift the curtain” and give you a behind-the-scenes look at Production … here we go!

These spectacular photographs were taken during the shoot in July by “Wheel of Fortune” Photographer Carol Kaelson. They’ll give you a true “insider’s look” at just how many people it takes to make “television magic.” (And, yes, that’s yours truly sharing some of my favorite Disney Trivia with Pat and Vanna. But be sure you look closely. You just might see a favorite character from Disney’s Animal Kingdom lurking amongst the trees.)

Of course, after a fantastic time here in Florida, it was time to pack it up and head to California to tape the shows. And, yes … Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy were with us, as well. Here’s one more sneak peek, as the Gang shot a fun scene that will open tomorrow night’s episode.

Disney Grand Adventure Week on “Wheel of Fortune” begins tomorrow, September 26, and continues through September 30.

45 Anniversary

 

Its a banner year for Magic Kingdom with 45th Anniversary celebrations kicking off on October 1st.  Though it certainly won’t be on the same scale as Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, details ares slowly trickling in as to how Disney World plans to ring in this special day in Magic Kingdom’s history.  Here’s what we know so far:

Special Celebration in front of Cinderella’s Castle– Those visiting the Magic Kingdom on October 1st will get to take in  a special presentation (the details of which have yet to be released) at the Forecourt Stage directly in front of the Castle at 9:30am.  So be sure to get to the park bright and early.

Merchandise – For those who have yet to see the unboxing of Magic Kingdom’s 45th Anniversary Merchandise.

Here it is:

From t-shirts, keychains, MagicBands, exclusive pins to stunning Dooney and Bourke bags, 45th Anniversary collectors items will definitely be flying off the shelves  so get yours while supplies last.

Food and Drink –  As with any good Disney celebration guests can also ring in Magic Kingdom’s anniversary by tucking in to some delightful snacks created specifically for the occasion.  Disney’s is being a bit secretive in terms what exactly will be on offer though we do know that you’ll want to pop by either Main Street Bakery or Gaston’s Tavern to find out.

The Disney rumor mill is buzzing with other possible happenings in and around Magic Kingdom’s on October 1st, from Character Meet and Greets to other special events so watch this space and we’ll keep you updated as and when details start to trickle in.

Hope to see you there!

The all-new, live show “The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History” will debut at Magic Kingdom on October 2, 2016. It will take place several times daily, just outside The Hall of Presidents and is hosted by James “J.J.” Jefferson and Sam Eagle. Watch as some of your favorite Muppets such as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the Great Gonzo perform in this wacky new patriotic show.

Throughout the day, J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor. At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.

Are you looking forward to a history lesson presented by the Muppets at Magic Kingdom this fall?

Disney has released information on a new promotion for guests who book at certain Good Neighbor Hotels through the Walt Disney Travel Company during specified time frames:

Beginning Sept. 22, 2016, for a limited time, Guests who book a Walt Disney Travel Company package at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney Springs™ Resort Area Hotels or a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® Hotel with a minimum 3-day ticket, can enjoy the convenience of prepaid dining at Quick-Service Restaurant locations at Walt Disney World Resort. Booking dates for this additional package option are Sept. 22, 2016-April 1, 2017 and travel dates are Sept. 26, 2016-April 4, 2017. 

For each day of theme park admission, adults in the party will receive $40, and children will receive $15 on their Quick-Service Dine Gift Cards. However, Guests will only be charged $35 per adult/per day and $12.50 per child/per day. For example, a Guest with a 3-day ticket included in their package would receive a $120 Disney Quick-Service Dine Gift Card for only $105. A child with the same ticket would receive a $45 dine gift card for only $37.50. The Quick-Service Dine Gift Cards may be redeemed at select Quick-Service Dining locations, or food carts, in Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks, Disney Springs™ and Disney Resort hotels.

You can upgrade your Disney Quick-Service Dine Gift Card (up to a maximum value of $400 USD for adults and $150 USD for children) as long as they include a 3-day Theme Park admission ticket. And, just as with our other dining plans, every Guest on the package must purchase a Walt Disney World Quick-Service Dine Gift Card with the same equivalent value.

Please note the Disney Quick-Service Dine Card package add-on will follow the standard Walt Disney Travel Company booking, modification and cancellation policies.

You will receive their Disney Quick-Service Dine Gift Cards along with your Theme Park tickets upon check-in at their hotel. At that time, the Quick-Service Dine Gift Card will then follow these standard gift card policies:

  • Cannot be redeemed for cash
  • Will not be replaced if lost or stolen
  • Unused Dining Gift Card balances are not eligible for a refund
  • Cannot be used for merchandise
  • Only eligible at Disney Quick-Service Restaurant locations

The 21st Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. runs 62 days from Sept. 14-Nov. 14, 2016.

We mentioned earlier that Disney is beginning a new Autumn campaign, #WonderFALLDisney. We’ve been given some more details about what you can expect during this WonderFall time of year at Epcot, during the International Food & Wine Festival. Disney released the following suggestions for how to enjoy this first WonderFALL weekend!:

Your three-day epicurean adventure kicks off today with the Ultimate Day at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It’s a seven hour VIP culinary extravaganza that starts with a celebrity chef Andrea Robinson-hosted brunch and finishes with a glass of bubbly while rockin’ to the BoDeans Eat to the Beat concert.

In between, travel to the kingdom of Arendelle on the new Frozen Ever After at the Norway Pavilion, explore the global marketplaces with a Disney Chef, fly around the globe on the new Soarin’ Around the World. Your post-flight snack includes a Cicerone-guided sampling of the Festival’s signature craft beers paired with chef-selected delicacies.

If you still have the energy, enjoy reserved viewing for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

Or grab a costume (a pair of Mickey ears will do …) and hop over to the Magic Kingdom Park for the happiest haunts around at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. In between treat stations and the attractions, check out the Sanderson Sisters’ “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular.” A sweet ending to your first fall night with us is the Happy HalloWishes Dessert Party, which includes preferred viewing for the 8:30 p.m. Mickeys’ “Boo-too-You” Halloween Parade.

New in 2015, the "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular," show during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park features the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney's Hocus Pocus, who throw an evil Halloween party with appearances by Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and other Disney villains, along with dancers, projections and special effects. Walt Disney World Resort is located in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (David Roark, photographer)

Sleep in on Saturday and enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Disney’s BoardWalk promenade. Recently renovated, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort is just steps away from the International Gateway to Epcot. And it also has new dining options, including the reimagined Flying Fish, a touch of nightly magic at Abracadabar and handcrafted ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery, featuring flavors like Malty Salty Pretzel Punch.

wlwad4786774

Head back to the Festival Center at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival for an afternoon wine seminar and try a new “Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It” hands-on workshop. This weekend showcases “Mix it with Whisky.”

Sugar Ray headlines the Eat to the Beat concert on Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday, enjoy a plated breakfast at What’s Cookin’ With… celebrity chef Robert Irvine. As you check your Festival passport for any dishes or drinks you might have missed, don’t fret if you simply can’t eat another bite.

We have seven more weeks of the Festival – so there’s plenty of time to return. I’ll share ideas for another #WonderFALLDisney weekend with grand tasting events and chances for you to create alongside our Disney chefs in a future story.

Will you be visiting Walt Disney World this Fall to enjoy all the fun?

If you’ve been to Walt Disney World during the Fall, you know there is a vast amount of things to do and see during this wonderful time of year. To make Fall at the parks even more special, Disney announced today, the first day of Fall, that they are kicking off a new campaign called #WonderFALLDisney in which the Disney Parks Blog authors will be sharing some of the best experiences of the season at Epcot, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom to celebrate a ‘WonderFALL” world of Disney.

 

Disney released this information about the new campaign:

Later today, we’ll be sharing other #WonderFALLDisney experiences you can enjoy during a long weekend trip this Fall, special photography highlighting the sights of the season and more. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog daily to learn all that’s happening around the WonderFALL world of Disney this time of year.

Disney is testing Rivers of Light in the Animal Kingdom again, according to Instagram-er safari_mike.

You might remember earlier this year when Rivers of Light was supposed to premiere as part of the Summer Awakenings, but due to mechanical issues it was pushed back indefinitely. Instead Disney whipped up the Jungle Book Alive with Magic Show till they could get all the bugs worked out.

Earlier this month Jungle Book Alive with Magic was retired that meant Disney could begin testing Rivers of Light again. I am hearing that we could see Rivers of Light as early as October!!!

No official word has been released by Disney but I would expect an announcement just as soon as they know if they have all the kinks fixed and are ready to go!

Are you excited to see Rivers of Light? Let me know in the comment box below.

Returning again to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival is the popular Chase Lounge. This cozy little spot in the American Pavilion is a great way to cool off, get recharged, sample a free coke beverage and more. All you need to do is flash your Chase Visa to get in! There is a bit of a wait but I have found if you go while a Eat to the Beat show is in the lines are a little shorter…

Also if you get here first thing you can get wrist bands for a special seating section at Eat to the Beat, these go really fast so I would make sure to get back here as soon as the World Showcase opens.

Here are some of the photos from the Lounge:

Chase debit and credit cardmembers, including Disney Visa Cardmembers, will receive exclusive access to the Chase Lounge at the Festival. The Lounge, located on the third floor of the American Adventure Pavilion within Epcot World Showcase, will offer cardmembers an inviting place to relax, enjoy complimentary, non-alcoholic refreshments, and access charging stations, among other amenities.

It will open daily during the Festival from 11 a.m. until Park close.

Annual Passholder Changes

Annual Passholders may be facing an upcoming round of changes if recent surveys being circulated by Disney are anything to go by.  Both Passholders at Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California are starting to worry that their 12 month passes will look more like 10 month passes if Disney has their way.

The focal point of the Passholder surveys centers around gauging whether or not those with annual passes would consider paying full-price for park admission during a two month annual pass blackout period that would coincide with the opening of key attractions such as the hotly anticipated Star Wars, Avatar and Toy Story offerings currently under construction.

The surveys ask whether guests would pay for park admission on-top of their annual pass, would upgrade to a pass offering them premium admission that would encompass these blackout dates or whether Passholders would instead be content waiting it out until after the blackout dates have passed in order to enjoy Disney’s newest attractions.

Though the survey’s aren’t a definite indication that changes will be made to the Annual Pass system, it certainly points to the fact that Disney is starting to think about strategies to capitalize on the upcoming expansions.  The mere suggestion of extensive blackout dates has both the Disneyland Annual Passport holders and Walt Disney World’s passholders ( many of whom are already paying between $800 – $1000) up in arms.

Those thinking about purchasing or renewing their annual passes are encouraged to watch this space for further details.

Hey there guys and gals it is I, Anonymouse! I am back with some sad but inevitable Disney Gossip.

Word on the street is that Disney is going to be closing the Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios. You might remember back in March we reported that it was going to remain open along side all the construction in the back-lot area. It looks like now the Writer’s Stop days are numbered. I am hearing that it will be closing as early as this week. I hear September 25th or 26th.

No word on what will be happening to the building or if those delicious Carrot Cake Cookies will be available elsewhere.

Honestly I did not expect that shop to remain open that much longer. It is tucked away back behind Sci-Fi Dine-In and not many people knew about the delicious coffee, yummy treats, and the comfy chairs you could relax in.

As always nothing is official till Disney says it is.

That is all the Disney gossip I have for now. For my past gossip articles be sure to check them out here. Got any good gossip/rumors please email me at anonymouse@chipandco.com or on my Facebook page

F&W

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic will celebrate its seventh year October 28 – 29 at the Epcot Resort Area resort with its largest event to date featuring 50 food and wine stations, 10 seminars and opportunities to meet the award-winning chefs behind featured culinary masterpieces.

With more food and drink stations spreading out among more space than ever before, guests will delight in numerous opportunities to sip and savor along the resort’s causeway, alongside the resort’s private lake, and for the first time, on the resort’s private beach all weekend while enjoying live entertainment.

Delectable culinary offerings headline the two-night event, featuring cuisine from the resort’s own award-winning restaurants: Il Mulino New York Trattoria, Shula’s Steak House Todd English’s bluezoo, Kimonos and more, with wine and spirits samplings from around the globe.

“Each year we seek to give our guests something new and exciting to experience and taste.” said the resort’s Director of Food & Beverage Tony Porcellini. “This year, we’ll be able to offer them more food, more drink and more fun than ever before.”

What’s New
Making its festival debut this year is an immersive area, which will transport guests’ palates to the streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown with décor and dishes inspired by the famous neighborhood.

Two new dishes were created by resort’s award-winning culinary team will be featured in the area: crispy duck with cucumber, scallion, hoisin sauce and a steamed bun as well as Shanghai dumplings, handmade with pork, rice wine, ginger and scallion, served with soy sauce and chili oil sauce.

Also new for 2016 is the Sunday Bubbles Brunch with J Vineyards and Winery at Il Mulino New York Trattoria, featuring a lavish menu of traditional and unconventional dishes like various cured meats and imported cheeses along with an array of sushi and trattoria-inspired entrees.

Featured Food
Friday and Saturday nights, feature menus full of new and unique dishes sure to please the palate, including spinach and potato agnolotti with pork, tomato cream grilled radicchio and ricotta salata; smoked beef brisket with white cheddar beignet and concord grape and smoked bacon remoulade; and seared striped bass with fall artichokes, nicoise olives and Spanish caper emulsion.

Favorite dishes from past years also return, such as the shrimp cocktail steamroller, Thai chicken salad with organic greens, green papaya tamarind and ginger dressing as well as the dragon sushi roll with crispy shrimp, tuna and avocado.

The resort’s World Champion Pastry Chef, Laurent Branlard, provides a sweeter side to the evening with decadent desserts like the all-chocolate choux and caramel sea salt éclair with vanilla whipped cream and comfit gingered pears. The Sundae Action Station returns allowing guests to choose their own toppings like chocolate cake and caramelized banana.

Seminars and Upgrades
Two new hands-on educational seminars, taught by members of the resort’s award-winning food and beverage team, are being added to this year’s seminar offerings. The Craft Cocktails seminar educates guests on the origins of traditional cocktails and how to make them, and More than Malbec introduces the world of popular Argentinian wines, with tastings and tips for pairing. Popular returning seminar topics include wine blending, Italian wines, champagne, beer, tequila, pasta making, sushi and sake and wine and cheese pairing. All seminars require separate tickets, and space is limited.

As an upgraded ticket option, guests can experience a beer garden, featuring a variety of local and seasonal brews from around the world, alongside Oktoberfest-inspired cuisine made by the resort’s culinary experts.

Award-Winning Chefs
To add to the event’s appeal, guests can enjoy a meet and greet with celebrity chef Todd English, the namesake of the resort’s Todd English’s bluezoo restaurant. Guests can also meet the world’s only two-time World Champion Pastry Chef and the resort’s very own executive pastry chef, Laurent Branlard. Barbeque fans shouldn’t miss the Cib’s Smoke House station for signature barbeque dishes from the resort’s Executive Chef Robert Ciborowski.

With 17 restaurants and lounges, a distinguished culinary and beverage team and unmatched customer service, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort continually receives national recognition for its food and beverage program. The culinary team has had the honor of presenting multiple dinners at the distinguished James Beard House. The resort boasts more than 70 certified wine sommeliers and 1,400 wine selections, including organic and rare vintages. The resort’s restaurants are annual winners of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence including Shula’s Steak House, a five-time recipient of the exclusive Best of Award of Excellence.

Stitch closure

Here at Chip and Co, we reported back in August that Stitch’s Great Escape was rumored to be closing as part of Disney World’s $3.5 billion renovation to make room for a Wreck It Ralph attraction.  It looks like these changes are further along than many thought as Disney has released information suggesting that in a month’s time this Tomorrowland attraction will be moving to a seasonal schedule.

The ride is set to be closing on October 2nd, 2016 but will  re-open November 19th -26th and December 17,2016 – January 2, 2017 to accommodate the influx of holiday visitors.  What happens to the ride after that remains a bit uncertain, though a seasonal closure would suggested to many that the attraction is winding down to make way for other offerings.

Considered by many to be  Disney World’s most unflattering attraction, the closure of Stitch’s Great Escape will be a welcome change for many a Magic Kingdom visitor left disappointed by this lackluster tribute to everyone’s favorite little blue alien.

Readers are encouraged to watch this space for any further developments.

The Disney and Star Wars rumor mills are abuzz with speculation that Disney’s Hollywood Studios will soon be announcing plans to celebrate the première of the next Star Wars movie Rogue One opening in theaters in December.

WDWMAGIC has reported that the event will be titled “Star Wars Galactic Nights” and will follow in the footsteps of last year’s Star Wars The Force Awakens opening night party.  If that is indeed the case then the event would be hard-ticketed and would include admission to the feature film (previously screened at AMC Disney Springs 24.)

Last year’s event included an early evening movie première followed by a private after-hours party at Hollywood Studios that ran until 2am.  Activities on offer at the park included late-night access to Star Wars Launch Bay and Star Tours.  There was also a DJ Dance Party and a late night Star Wars Fireworks display.  Guests were also encouraged to dress up as their favorite Star Wars characters from films both old and new. The cost for The Force Awakens première event was $94 for 2D, $98 for 3D and $100 for 3D ETX.

Disney has not released official word as of yet regarding this year’s event, dates or pricing.  Readers are encouraged to watch this space for further details.

You may remember our post about the introduction of Fuel Rod charging device kiosks throughout Walt Disney World. It seems the service has been incredibly successful, and because of that, Disney is going to be adding more Fuel Rod locations, as well as more Fuel Rod kiosks being added in locations that already exist.

14407738_10154069476418983_1119766995_n 14429173_10154069385613983_1817905095_n 14438922_10154069385463983_1357711412_o

 

We hear from WDW News Today that each kiosk holds a certain number of pre-charged Fuel Rods, which are replaced as they are depleted by a Fuel Rod cast member. It seems the number of times the stations need to be refilled daily has become quite an undertaking for the cast member(s). Disney plans on adding 15 more Fuel Rod kiosks throughout the parks, which should help alleviate the demand for charged Fuel Rods.

 

Have you tried using a Fuel Rod yet during your visit to the parks?
