Wednesday with Walt: Eating Around Epcot

Hello Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2018!

Yay! It is here y’all…well it actually started last week, but TODAY was my first time visiting the festival this year.

I started the day at a VIP Pass Holder Playtime in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios. Ahhh-MAAAAZE-ING y’all! Don’t worry, I will be sharing all the details from one of the best Disney days I’ve ever had soon, but for now we are talking all about Food & Wine!

After riding all the rides at Hollywood Studios it was time for me to Park Hop! Frozen Ever After had a 20 minute wait, so I figured I’d make my way over to Epcot. Since today was my first time visiting the Park during this year’s Food & Wine Festival, I immediately headed over to the Festival Center to get my Annual Pass Holder Magnet.

Coincidence or perfect timing? I just happened to get to Epcot in time for lunch! Eating my way around the world it is! There are SO many choices y’all and I want to try them all!

I started my way around the World Showcase scoping out the various menus and Japan’ Teriyaki Chicken Bun sounded too good to pass up!

Oh my heavens y’all! The Teriyaki Chicken Bun was delicious! It’s a steamed bun filled with Chicken, Veggies and a Sweet Teriyaki Sauce. It is the perfect tasting portion and full of flavor. I highly recommend and would definitely consider getting it again during this year’s festival.

From Japan I continued on my journey around the World Showcase and stopped in the Good Ole’ US of A. Hops and Barley had one of my favorite eats at last year’s Festival. Naturally, I just had to have the New England Lobster Roll again this year!

So, so, so tasty! A griddled bun topped with warm lobster meat and a Fresh Herb Mayo. It literally melts in your mouth y’all. Its all delicious, but I LOVE the griddle bun. It is a perfect sized bite, although I wouldn’t complain if they made it bigger!

I am heading back to the Festival tomorrow for another VIP Event and looking forward to trying a few more dishes. Have you visited the festival this year? What are some of your favorite, MUST TRY dishes? I’d love to hear your recommendations!

See You Real Soon!

We hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers Y’all!

Wednesdays with Walt in Italy.

If you didn’t see our Tuesday Travels post, you missed out! We started the story telling journey of our recent Newly Newlywed trip to Italy. Over the next few days and weeks we’re going to share all the details from our two week trip across the pond. IMG_1518.JPG

We’ve got the perfect post for a Wednesday with Walt. If you’ve been following us for any link of time, you’ve caught on to my love for Disney. Wouldn’t you know, Disney just follows us wherever we go?

Skipping a few days into our trip from where we left off, while in Florence HeliHubby just happened to find me a Disney Euro Store! Ah! Y’all my heart was oh-so happy! IMG_1704.JPG

No surprise to us Disney fans, the store was full of Disney Magic. Disney movie music filled the air, all in Italian of course. As soon as I opened the doors and walked in, I immediately knew I was not in the typical Disney Store. The decor was very Italian. Ceilings painted with Roman Disney Characters, paintings hung the walls featuring iconic Italian landmarks and of course hidden Mickeys everywhere!

The store had the typical Disney Merchandise: shirts, toys, stuffed animals, all the coffee cups and speciality merchandise specific to Italy. I. WANTED. IT. ALL. Y’ALL!

If you’re a Disney fan roaming the streets of Florence make sure to pop by Via dei Calzaiuoli, 69/71/R, 50123 and say hello to Mickey and the gang! The store is in the same building as Hotel Maxim. {Feel free to pick up your favorite Newly Newlyweds a surprise too!}

Have you found another International Disney Store? Which is your favorite location? We’d love to hear all about it!

Join us tomorrow as we Throwback to more of our Italian Adventures!

Until next time, we hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers Y’all!
