Let’s face it, we love Disney food and all of the food events Disney puts on, and I wanted to tell you about 3 Special Disney Dining Events this Summer which are being prepared by the Food and Beverage team in Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Take a look
Delicious Disney Dining Series
The next dinner in the series for this Classic Disney storytelling event will be May 31st at Markham’s at Golden Oak, which celebrates the “Flowers and Tree” cartoon made by Walt Disney. Park Events Operations’ Chef John Clark and his team, along with Golden Oak Chef Phillip Ponticelli are going to be in the Markham’s kitchen and create a meal you will never forget.
After this one the next in the series will be a culinary tribute to the 10th Anniversary of Disney/Pixar’s “Ratatouille” on June 28th at 6:30 pm with Chef Dominique and his outstanding team from Citricos in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. After that July 19th brings us the exotic tastes of a journey under the sea with Timothy Majoras and his team from Flying Fish on Disney’s Boardwalk.
All of the Delicious Disney Dining Series events have limited seating so you want to reserve your table as soon as possible which you can do by calling 407-939-5773.
Napa Rose Food and Wine Pairing Experience
The second of the special Disney Dining Events this Summer is sure to please cheese and wine lovers (me!!). Every Saturday between 2pm and 3pm at Napa Rose in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa there’s a one hour seminar and wine pairing experience. The experience includes 5 Wines, 3 Cheeses and 2 Charcuterie tastes. The cost is $95. To reserve call 714-781-3463.
July 4 at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Lastly, Summer always means barbecue and on the 4th of July there’s a special cook-out event at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Walt Disney World. This cookout will be held at the resort’s Summerhouse from 7-8:30 pm. After that you can head down to the Grand Floridian Marina for dessert and a great view of the 4th of July Fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. If you haven’t seen them before they are absolutely stunning!
What kind of food will there be? Get your fill on Grilled Steak and Shrimp, Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, plenty of mouthwatering sides, specialty drinks, beer and wine. There will also be a live DJ and activities for kids. The cost of the event is $120 plus tax per adult and $59 for children ages 3 to 11. Call 407-WDW-DINE for reservations.
So whether you are in Disney World Florida or Disneyland California, there’s a bit of something for all fellow food lovers this Summer. I hope you can get a chance to try one of the events and then tell me about your experience!
