Here’s a look at what should be most or all of the 2017 dated merchandise available at Walt Disney World.
Most or all of it is available via the Disney Store or Shop Disney Parks app, in addition to the major stores on property:
The website has published two sizable reviews of Tiffins at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The first dinner review includes pictures and descriptions of every single appetizer, entree, and dessert on the menu, in addition to 30+ pictures of the three dining rooms. I followed that up with a Taste of Tiffins review, which took a look at the $28 lunch offering which includes a choice of two items alongside a jade blend rice. Today, we return to the Taste of Tiffins and check out the newish lamb entree, in addition to an update on what’s going on with Nomad Lounge. And I conclude with a lot of pictures of Rivers of Light.
Last week, Disney made a pretty significant announcement that construction was already underway on a new 15-story, 500+ room tower at the Coronado Springs Resort. That tower will contain some number of “regular rooms,” in addition to suites and “concierge level services.” And perhaps most interestingly, a rooftop restaurant that promises “panoramic views of popular nighttime fireworks from nearby Disney theme parks” will be added. New bridges will be constructed to better connect other guest areas with the tower and new “floating gardens” will also be added to brighten up the landscape. You can read the full announcement here in case you haven’t already read 75 different versions slightly reworded.
The construction is immediately noticeable as you approach the gate as the Cabanas building that’s being torn down is just inside the resort’s main entrance on the right.
Back on November 21st, 2016, Disney announced that a new Festival would be arriving at Epcot. Running on Fridays through Mondays from January 13 – February 20, I thought the event fit Epcot’s theme perfectly and added a lot of fun and interesting things to do.
Now that the Festival is over, I’m not sure if this post is more or less useless than it would have been had it turned up a couple of days after the Arts debuted.
It’s been a while since we’ve taken a look at Tusker House, the character meal in the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so I thought it would be prudent to bundle a review along with a look at what the Rivers of Light Dining Package includes in terms of seating/convenience.
