Spring may technically still be a few weeks away – but it’s getting close, especially at Walt Disney World! Check out the topiaries in bloom at WDW:

These and many more are on display during the annual 2018 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival happening now through May all throughout Epcot.

Does this mean the snow is done? I hope so *fingers crossed!*

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rose Gold Mania Hits The Disney Parks

It all started back in August – when these Rose Gold Minnie Ears hit the shelves at various shops throughout the Disney Parks

They were an instant hit – so much so that they couldn’t keep them in stock the first few months! (Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten yours yet – you can buy them on the ShopDisney App)

Disney took this as a good sign – and ran with it:

The millennial pink Magic band was introduced soon thereafter…

Rose-gold-1

…As were these Rose Gold Jerseys

Soon enough, they realized it was time to venture outside of apparel – and go for the big guns…

…and by big guns I mean DESSERT, of course! This is the new Rose Gold Ears Cupcake – available at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. The cake itself is marble, with a pile of vanilla buttercream on top. The bow and ears are fondant – which means they are edible but probably not the best tasting thing ever – but they sure are adorable!

This one definitely falls into the “too cute to eat (but I will demolish it anyway)” category! I hope they are still around later this year when I head to WDW

What about you – will you be giving into the “Rose Gold” trend for any of these awesome goodies?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – But First…Let Me Take a Selfie

I was doing some Disney web browsing (as I often do because – well – Disney rules), checking out news and updates people had posted -and I stumbled across this article titled “9 “Walls” Disney Parks Super Fans Deem Instagram Worthy” – and upon further reading, I realized – it’s really an article about the best places to take selfies at Walt Disney World. Now – I understand that not everyone is super into taking selfies, but if you ARE – then these are some of the best places to do it:

I personally LOVE all of these, and upon further inspection I found even more awesome places to pose – check out these, and even more here

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ok Though – Spring Can SERIOUSLY Start Sprouting Up Anytime…

It snowed last week at my house. And we aren’t talking just a little tiny dusting that immediately melted/didn’t even turn the ground white. No. we are talking big, fluffy white flakes, all night and all day. And while I realize it’s pretty common for that to happen here in Upstate NY, I just am really ready for it to be done, and for the flowers to come poking out, and the grass and leaves to grow nice and green…and since that clearly isn’t going to be happening here anytime soon, I invite you to join me on a little virtual trip to Walt Disney World, specifically to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival – where spring has DEFINITELY sprung:

The Festival itself features these and many many more amazing topiaries and floral displays, as well as concerts, seminars, demonstrations, and farm to table dining. It runs from the beginning of March to the end of May, and even if you’re not an avid gardener, you will appreciate the beauty and effort that is put into this amazing annual celebration!

What better way to celebrate spring than with a festival in bloom? Now if only some of that could head up North…TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Foodies Rejoice – Food And Wine Time Is Almost Here!

The characters, the rides, the shows – there’s so much to see and do at Walt Disney World that just thinking about it all makes me tired…and HUNGRY. Luckily, WDW has some truly amazing cuisine – and if you’re a “foodie” then you might want to plan your Disney vacation around the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – where you can experience even MORE amazing eats!

Guests can sample tapas-sized tastes of inventive cuisine from more than 30 global marketplaces during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Sept. 25-Nov. 16, 2015 at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The popular fall festival also features wine tastings, culinary demonstrations, mixology seminars, nightly "Eat to the Beat" concerts and a broad range of premium dining events. For the first time in the festival's 20-year-history, global marketplace experiences, expand from the park's World Showcase into Future World. (Matt Stroshane, photographer)

This year the Festival runs from September 14th – November 14th, and in addition to TONS of pop up kiosks featuring cuisine from around the world – places like Belgium, Brazil, South Korea, and MANY more will be represented

The idea here is to pair the country’s signature dishes with their best wines and beverages, to really showcase the food AND drink! Check out the full list of kiosks that will be at this year’s festival Here

In addition to the food and drink available for purchase, there will be live concerts, culinary demonstrations, beverage seminars, and newly added this year – the chance to get in on the action with “Mix it, Make It, Celebrate it!” classes (like sushi making and cake decorating to name a few!)

The Food and Wine Festival is really a dream come true for someone like myself – who loves Disney and FOOD – and I can’t wait to check it out next fall when I head to WDW!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy National Caramel Day!

Tuesday was National Caramel Day (yeah, that’s really a thing apparently!), and like any good foodie, I know where to get the GOOD stuff – the best spot for Caramel Coated treats in the World (both the Disney and real world) is at the Germany Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase – At the Karamell-Kuche store – where they are serving up TONS of amazing snacks featuring Werther’s Caramel:

Carmelcorn

They are famous for their Caramel Popcorn – made fresh throughout the day, and the smell alone is enough to draw you to the shop, but if you need a little more convincing that this is the snack for you – then grab a free sample while proceeding immediately to the checkout line so you can purchase some of your own

While you’re in line, you’ll have this amazing view of all the available treats for sale

My personal favorite? The Salted Caramel square – its amazing! The chocolate and caramel covered Krispie treat is huge and perfect for sharing (should you be so inclined!)

Hope you all enjoyed celebrating “National Caramel Day” – and if you didn’t even know that it happened, then maybe these pictures have inspired you to head to Walt Disney World for some delicious caramel snacks
