Hokkaido is the second largest island in Japan and the first largest Holiday Kitchen across from the Japan Pavilion.
Each item is a unique take on past Festival flavors with the exception of the Sapporo, which is a beer that we’ve seen plenty of times before.
The American Table returns to the far right side of the United States Pavilion.
From the Bavaria Kitchen review, you might remember my comments on portion size and pricing at the Festival of the Holidaus. Some food items return this year exactly the same as last year in every way other than that you’ll receive about 40% of last year’s serving for about 50% of the cost. That comes into play several times here at the American Holiday Table. Disney actually reuses their pictures from last year as well, which makes things even more convoluted. Exaggerated advertising? Shrinking package sizes? Increased costs? What’s more American than that?
The Tuscany Holiday Kitchen across from the Italy Pavilion on the Germany side is all-new for the 2017 Festival of the Holidays.
Which is not good news for my bank account.
The Bavaria Holiday Kitchen arrives in the usual Germany Festival spot.
One thing that we haven’t discussed much is portion-size and pricing compared to the Festival Formerly Known as Holidays Around the World from as recently as 2k16.
The Refreshment Cool Post gets into the spirit of the holidays with a couple of exclusive Festival offerings.
We’ll also reconsider the Frozen Brown Elephant.
