Marketplaces at This Year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Are Bigger and Better

When visiting the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival this year, you might notice something different about the locations when you're buying those tasty treats.

Disney Scented Air Fresheners Coming in August

Ever wished you could bring the scent of a Disney park home with you? Soon, you'll be able to! Disney is planning to release four new air fresheners in August that capture the smells of some of the best-loved treats at the parks.

Guests will be able to take home air fresheners based on the following Disney food items: a turkey leg, a Mickey-shaped premium ice cream bar, a candy apple and a Mickey waffle.

The air fresheners, which have been over a year in the making, will retail for 5.95 each. Look for them this August inside Disney parks.

Babycakes NYC Vegan Bakery Opens in Downtown Disney

In a trifecta of deliciousness, three new food locations opened in Downtown Disney this month, replacing the spot vacated by McDonald's after the restaurant's contract expired with Disney last year.

Pollo Campero and Fresh Apeel offer your entrees, while Babycakes NYC -- a starlet New York City bakery that recently expanded to LA and now to Orlando -- offers the primary dessert options.

What makes this place different from any other you'll find in Disney World, however, is what you won't find in its cupcakes, breads, and cookies. The Vegan bakery is also egg-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and refined sugar-free -- perfect for guests with specialty diets!
