Walt Disney World News Round-up For Friday October 9th, 2020

I am loving how everything keeps changing at the Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Giving guests something new to come back for has been a great way to keep the scaled down version of the annual festival a little more exciting. Recently two new booths have opened with spectacular sweet treats to enjoy!

Souvenir Sensation: Folding Hand Fans

I love shopping at Walt Disney World, and I am always on the hunt for new treasure and trinkets to bring back with me from my travels. On my most recent trip I came across a fabulous and fair inexpensive souvenir that was as useful as it was pretty - Disney themed folding hand fans!

Fall Products From Basin at Disney Springs

If you want to turn your home or hotel bathroom into your personal spa, be sure to stop by Basin at Disney Springs. This "bustling beauty emporium" is the place to go for feel-good essentials, including specialty body butters, bath bombs, salts, scrubs, creams, masks, toners, fresh-sliced soaps and more. One of my favorite things about Basin is the fun seasonal products that make any time of year just a little more special. Check out what wonderful things I found to celebrate Fall.

Social Distancing On Walt Disney World Buses

Complimentary transportation is one of my favorite things about staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. However, since COVID-19 has become an issue I've wondered if my days of riding the Disney bus were over. On a recent trip to Florida I took Disney transportation so that I could share with you what the differences were and how I felt riding.

Pumpkin Crème Brûlée At Amorette's Patisserie In Disney Springs

Amorette's Patisserie at Disney Springs is one of my favorite places to stop in for a seasonal treat. This charming little shop is one of the best places at Walt Disney World to indulge in luxury sweets. The Pastry Chefs here are always working hard to create tantalizing tastes that are as beautiful as they are indulgent. I stopped in on my last trip to enjoy the Pumpkin Creme Brulee, a limited time treat just here for Fall of 2020.

Disney Springs Extends Weekend Hours Starting October 9th, 2020

While I was in Walt Disney World last month the place that I took the most comfort was at Disney Springs. Despite the masks, temperature checks, and social distance guidelines being in place the sprawling shopping, dining, and entertainment complex gave me the greatest feeling of "normalcy." There I found that music played, crowds bustled, and restaurants welcomed guests to (current) capacity.

Limoncello Mojito at Terralina Crafted Italian

If you're looking for a quick spot to relax and get out of the sun at Disney Springs, give the outdoor bar at Terralina Crafted Italian a try for pizza, wine, and some great signature cocktails. On my last trip I popped in to order up a Limoncello Mojito. The velvety booze balanced between freshness and that particular lemony sweetness with a kick of mint that cools your throat on even the hottest day.

Disney To Lay Off 28,000 From Parks, Cruise Line, and Products

The Walt Disney Company made the painful decision this week to eliminate thousands of jobs in Theme Parks, Cruise Line, and Retail. As a fan it's hard to hear because the cast members are a major component in what creates Disney Parks magic. Nine months into the COVID-19 pandemic, health and safety concerns continue to effect travel around the world and Disney struggles to balance business and safety while providing a quality vacation experience.

'Olu Mel Merchandise At Disney's Polynesian Resort

'Olu Mel is the kindhearted 'ukulele-playing sea turtle mascot of Disney's Aulani Resort in Ko Olina, Hawaii. He's been exclusive to Aulani since his debut in 2018, but the spirit of Aloha he brings to fans simply can't be contained because you can currently find the little guys taking a vacay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. I noticed this sign in the Great Ceremonial House last week and had to check out 'Olu Mel for myself.

Amorette's Pumpkin Minnie Mousse

The seasonal fall festivities are in full swing at Disney Springs with colorful autumn decor, Halloween goodies at retailers, and a flavorful bonanza from the restaurant crowd. I recently stopped by Amorette's Patisserie to check out what was on the menu and see how things were going since they reopened. This upscale patisserie has three new treats that are available for a limited time!
