Fear not wine conissouers – Walt Disney World has NOT forgotten about you! It may be a Theme Park with ample child and family friendly activities and restaurants, but there is plenty for us adults to enjoy too!
So if you find that you’re in the mood for a glass or two of vino after a long day of touring the Parks, then I suggest you head to these spots:
Magic Kingdom – Up until just recently, the Magic Kingdom was a “dry” park that didn’t serve any alcohol at all, but with the addition of the Be Our Guest restaurant at the New Fantasyland came a french inspired menu that included cornish game hen, pork chops, and ratatouillie. Along with that menu came a drink menu that includes some truly delicious red and white wines, as well as some classic French beers.
There are some great drink options on the menu, and since it’s a new (popular!) restaurant, you will definitely want to make an ADR to wine and dine here!
The Disney parks are planning for a Monstrous Summer and this includes renovations and expansions to the parks and resorts. Here is an update on what will be coming to Walt Disney World!
New Fantasyland is the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history and although most of the area has opened, there is still one central part under construction- the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster. This attraction will include both an indoor and outdoor track and swaying ride vehicles.
“I think it’s definitely going to add a dynamic, a lot of kinetic energy, which will be fun,” says new Walt Disney World President George Kalogridis. “I think of it as theater in the round,” says Mark Kohl, director of project management for the Fantasyland expansion. “Our guests will be able to walk 360 degrees around the coaster when it’s complete and experience it from all angles.”
The attraction is planned to slow down indoors and morph into a dark ride and then back into a roller coaster. “We’re going to take you inside this magical cave where millions of diamonds and gems are going to shine, and seven of our closest friends are all going to be hard at work in there,” Kohl says. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is expected to open in the spring 2014.
Who’s ready for an update on the remaining construction in the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom Park?
Walt Disney Imagineering just shared a new video with us that offers up a look inside the two attractions in New Fantasyland that are still yet to debut: Princess Fairytale Hall and “Princess Fairytale Hall at New Fantasyland”
Princess Fairytale Hall, which will open later this year, will be the ultimate destination in which to greet Disney royalty. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a family coaster that is set to open in 2014, will take Magic Kingdom Park guests on a musical journey through the mine “where a million diamonds shine.” The attraction will offer an innovative ride system with a train of vehicles that respond to every twist and turn, plus appearances by animated figures from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and music from this classic Disney film.
