We visit the beautiful Morocco Pavilion to make another visit to poor, poor Spice Road Table.
You probably know Spice Road as the perennially desolate, least popular table service option at Epcot. And maybe, the world.
My initial review was largely favorable, though I noted that the above is $98 worth, which is rough considering the relatively small portion sizes. But with no entrees on the original menu, putting together a full meal would cost you a pretty penny. That tray on the bottom right was $16 on its own.
The Frozen Ever After Dessert Party replaced the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party back on July 17th, 2017.
At a cost of $79 per adult and $47 per child (ages 3-9), including tax and gratuity, the Dessert Party consists of three major components:
- The dessert buffet, featuring sweet and savory options, in addition to beer, wine, and select cocktails.
- Reserved viewing for IllumiNations. If the dessert buffet portion is conducted outside, then viewing is seated at reserved tables. If the dessert buffet portion is held inside (typically due to the chance of inclement weather), then the reserved viewing is standing-room-only. Either way, there’s plenty of room for all to see.
- One ride on the Frozen Ever After attraction after IllumiNations.
As always, we’ll take a good look at what’s available at the buffet, consider the value of the reserved viewing and Frozen ride, and try to figure out whether or not it makes sense for you and your group to book this experience. My recent review of the Happily Ever After Dessert Party is available here. I also have a review of the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party here. If you’d like to skip the review, my opinion of whether or not the event is “worth it” can be found in the last sentence below.
We continue our walk around Disney Springs after taking an expansive look at the West Side, and then the Town Center, before arriving here at The Ganachery in the Landing. To the left of the chocolate shoppe sits the first retail casualty of the Disney Springs expansion with “Sound Lion” closing earlier this year to make way for the Savanna Bee Company. Amusingly, the Bee Company ended up with a pretty big…bee problem…at their outdoor kiosk, so the move inside should be of some benefit.
I love The Ganachery and have purchased a variety of chocolates here since the location opened about 20 months ago.
Disney has gone in a couple of different directions with the way it has labeled its Disney Springs maps. Above is the current look, which emphasizes whether each space is entertainment, food & beverage, shopping, or guest services. This post is otherwise a continuation of the first part, which took a look at what’s happening on the West Side.
Back in May 2016, Disney instead emphasized which neighborhood each space inhabited. Guests probably don’t care so much about whether T-Rex situates itself in The Landing or Marketplace, but might want to know if it’s a restaurant or guest services.
It’s been a while since we’ve taken a good look at Disney Springs, so I thought it would be prudent to take a walk around and see what’s going on. Despite an “official” opening in May 2016, we’re still quite a ways away from a “final product.” If such a thing will ever exist.
DisneyQuest closed last month with the building’s demolition forthcoming.
