Pre Planning - October celebration

It's been two years since our last trip, and after watching a 10 year career end and taking the plunge into starting a consulting business, I didn't think another trip would be in our future anytime soon.
But in four short months, business is booming and I'm booked to capacity even though i'm the most expensive guy in my field. Knowing that the summer has been full of stress and unknowns for the Mrs & I, I felt that a fall trip to our "happy place" was in order. So off to Food & Wine fest we go. clapping

What's new in the Kingdom that we need to check out?

WOOO HOOO, that is awesome for y'all! Glad to hear things are going so well!

What's not new is easier to answer at this point laugh So many new things I'm not sure where to start.

Disney Springs - So many new restaurants/shops/musicians/etc they had to change the name...
The Marketplace has over 50 new shops and restaurants. Cocina Frontera, Art Smith's Homecoming, Sprinkles and Amorette's Patisserie to start with a few. A new Coca Cola Shop with 3 floors of coke merchandise and a bar on the top floor. Under Armour, Vera Bradley, Pandora, Alex and Ani, the list goes on and on. Throughout the evening there are live musicians all around Disney Springs with different genres being played. We caught and amazing Sax player one night along with 2 guys rapping using words they selected from the audience. World of Disney has been expanded also!

Epcot - Soarin is all set with the new movie and it is something to see. All new scenes, scents and effects! The Pixar Shorts, Baymax, Joy and Sadness Meet and Greets. New treats, snacks and beverages around World Showcase.

Magic Kingdom - The new stage show Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire. Be Our Guest Restaurant, 7 Dwarfs Mine Train. The Cheeseburger Eggroll Cart!!!

Hollywood Studios - Not too much new right now with all of the changes that are coming. More has closed that what has been added. The Star Wars Fireworks show is amazing. They also have added some new treats and kiosks for food.

Animal Kingdom - A Lot! The night time is the right time there now! Tiffins and Nomad Lounge are now open and serving delicious food and beverages, All of the rides at night have an entire different feel to them. The Lion King show in the new theater. The night time shows are not going to be available for a while but they will still be showing the light shows on the Tree of Life which are beautiful.

I am sure there is tons I missed but someone will chime in with more!!!

Can't wait to hear about your trip!
