Disney News Round-up: Loaded Plaza Fries, Orlando Dining Month, and More

If there's one thing we really, really love to talk about it is food at Walt Disney World. And today we have a delicious roundup of Disney food news for you! Let's dig in and see what's happening.

If you were a fan of the gone-but-not-forgotten Figaro Fries at Pinocchio's Village Haus, there's reason to celebrate. The Plaza Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom recently introduced Loaded Plaza Fries and they're basically a reincarnation of Figaro Fries.

Bookings are now open for all seminars, demos, and special events for this year's Epcot Food and Wine Festival! If you're hoping to score tickets for a taping of The Chew during the Festival, keep any eye on this page! And, as always, for the most up-to-date information on the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, make sure to check out the Disney Food Blog's 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival page.

If you're counting calories at Disney World you'll be happy to hear that some restaurants are reportedly displaying the calorie count on the menus.

Starting today, select counter service restaurants at the Magic Kingdom are giving guests discount coupons for select retail stores at Disney Springs. The coupons are printed on your dining receipt and are good through September 5.

And finally, Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month starts August 29 and runs through October 2. During the Magical Dining Month diners can enjoy prix fixe menus at select restaurants for just $33. Several Disney World Restaurants are participating including: STK, Morimoto Asia, Il Munio New York Trattoria, and todd english's bluezoo.

Are you happy to see the return of Figaro Fries? What do you think about the calorie counts on menus? Leave us a comment and let us know.

I really want to try the Plaza Fries, but I can't seem to squeeze in one more restaurant into the trip.
