2017 Disney Food & Wine Cookbook Shares Recipes Coast to Coast

2017 Disney Food & Wine Cookbook Shares Recipes Coast to Coast

For the first time ever, the 2017 “Disney Food & Wine Festival Coast-to-Coast Cookbook” takes you coast to coast to both Disney festivals – the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival that happens in the spring at the Disneyland Resort, and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, happening now through Nov. 13 at Walt Disney World Resort.

And since the Epcot festival is just under way, we’re sharing a new recipe from the Africa Marketplace, one of 35 Global Marketplaces at the 22nd Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

2017 Disney Food & Wine Cookbook Shares Recipes Coast to Coast

Generously seasoned, this flavorful, vegetarian version of a hearty African stew gets even more protein from quinoa and yogurt toppings. You can toast the naan for chips, but the pillowy flatbread is just as delicious simply served warm on the side for sopping up the stew.

The Disney wine experts recommend pairing this dish with a Pinotage; a medium-bodied red wine with red fruit aromas and a touch of smokiness. Bon appétit!

The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Ride Is Getting a Spoo-o-oky Makeover for Halloween

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Ride Is Getting a Spoo-o-oky Makeover for Halloween

“Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission:BREAKOUT!” is bringing an entirely new ride experience to Disney California Adventure for just six weeks — and it’s only happening at nighttime.

The massively popular attraction will operate normally each day, but will transform into “Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters After Dark” on evenings from September 15 to October 31.

When the sun goes down, the lighting and ambiance of the Marvel superhero drop tower will change and the ride itself will be completely anew. Daytime guests will continue to enjoy the six random ride sequences set to a rotation of classic rock jams, but on Monsters After Dark, all riders will be treated to three never-before-seen show scenes created specifically for the Halloween season. Add to it a series of sudden drops synchronized to a brand new song by the film series’ composer, Tyler Bates, and you’ve got a thrill ride that will outdo any haunted house.

This seasonal adrenaline rush builds upon the Mission:BREAKOUT! storyline, which sees Rocket Raccoon breaking the other Guardians out of collector Taneleer Tivan’s fortress with the help of its passengers. In “Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters After Dark,” guests will see what happens next as they’re enlisted to distract the supernatural creatures inhibiting the gang’s jailbreak as Rocket saves Baby Groot from being left behind.

“Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters After Dark” is just one of many Halloween-inspired enhancements coming to Disneyland Resort this fall. In addition to decorations, themed merchandise and four additional rides re-themed for the holiday, Disneyland also offers a ticketed holiday party with a festive parade, fireworks, entertainment and trick-or-treating.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Construction Milestone Celebrated at Disneyland Park

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Construction Milestone Celebrated at Disneyland Park

Recently, Walt Disney Imagineering and the project teams responsible for bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life at Disneyland park celebrated a major milestone — the topping out of the tallest peak in the 14-acre land.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Construction Milestone Celebrated at Disneyland Park

Rising to 130 feet, the steel that makes up the highest point in the new land was put in place as the design and construction teams celebrated the tradition.

 

Another part of this longtime construction tradition is when signatures are placed on the steel beam, and for this topping out every Disneyland Resort cast member was invited to take part! This isn’t the only way our cast members are getting involved.

Soon, a selected team of cast members will lend their expertise to the process of bringing the land’s two signature attractions to life. They will offer their unique knowledge of our parks, attractions and operations to inform and influence how the immersive attractions allow guests to experience Star Wars in their own way.

As you can see in the photo below, progress continues on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort where the remote trading port continues to take shape at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

As announced recently at D23 Expo, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in 2019, first at the Disneyland Resort and later that year at the Walt Disney World Resort.

New VOID Experience Centers Coming to Downtown Disney and Disney Springs This Holiday Season

New VOID Experience Centers Coming to Downtown Disney and Disney Springs This Holiday Season

Lucasfilm, ILMxLAB and The VOID recently announced the new Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire hyper-reality experience. This ground-breaking experience will open to the public at two new VOID Experience Centers at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort beginning this holiday season, giving Star Wars fans the opportunity to step beyond reality and into a galaxy far, far away.

“At The VOID, we combine the magic of illusions, advanced technology and virtual reality to create fully immersive social experiences that take guests to new worlds,” said Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at The VOID. “A truly transformative experience is so much more than what you see with your eyes; it’s what you hear, feel, touch, and even smell. Through the power of The VOID, guests who step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire won’t just see this world, they’ll know that they are part of this amazing story.”

ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s Immersive Entertainment division, created this first of its kind experience, in collaboration with The VOID. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will plunge guests directly into the iconic Star Wars galaxy. Guests will move freely throughout the untethered, social, and multi sensory experience as they interact and engage with friends, family and Star Wars characters.

“At ILMxLAB, we want people to step inside the worlds of our stories,” explained Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge of the division. “Through our collaboration with The VOID, we can make this happen as guests become active participants in an unfolding Star Wars adventure. By combining Lucasfilm’s storytelling expertise with cutting-edge imagery, and immersive sound from the team at Skywalker Sound, while invoking all the senses, we hope to truly transport all those who experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire to a galaxy far, far away.”

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire marks an important milestone in the continued expansion of The VOID, which also joined the 2017 Disney Accelerator earlier this year.

Dad’s Turn! Restaurants and Shops Celebrate Father’s Day with Bargains, Gifts and Special Menu Items at Downtown Disney District

Dad’s Turn! Restaurants and Shops Celebrate Father’s Day with Bargains, Gifts and Special Menu Items at Downtown Disney District

Whether Dad is into jazz, customized toy race cars, haute (hat) couture or just good grub, he and the rest of the family will find something make Father’s Day extra special this weekend in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort.

Does Dad look good in a fedora? More of an Indiana Jones kind of guy? He can get 20 percent off his pick Friday through Saturday, June 16-18, at Chapel Hats.

Is it a good weekend for auto racing? It’s always a good weekend for auto racing! Take Dad to RideMakerz in Downtown Disney District on Saturday or Sunday, build your ride, and Dad can build a second ride for free!

Dad’s Turn! Restaurants and Shops Celebrate Father’s Day with Bargains, Gifts and Special Menu Items at Downtown Disney District

If Dad grooves to New Orleans Jazz, look into the regular Sunday Brunch Fest, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen. Brunch features New Orleans-inspired cuisine, of course, plus live entertainment from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Louisiana-brewed Abita beer on tap.

June 16 to 18, Tortilla Jo’s is celebrating Dad with all his favorite flavors in El Papi’s Fajitas – grilled steak and chicken, Mexican shrimp and chorizo, Michoacan-style carnitas, grilled nopales, roasted cebollitas and bell peppers, queso ranchero and house-made molcajete salsa.

Uva Bar celebrates throughout the month with a special Father’s Day sandwich: the Big Daddy Burger with their signature beef blend, applewood bacon, fried egg, avocado, white cheddar, tomato, lettuce, secret sauce and brioche bun. Dad may want to pair it with a Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo, combining hops with essence of mango, papaya and passion fruit.

At the ESPN Zone on Sunday, there will be two Father’s Day specials created especially for the day: a Korean-style burger made with grass-fed beef, sambal aioli, pulled pork BBQ sauce, kimchi and tempura-fried avocados or, for the bigger appetite, the Father’s Day Grill Out: smoked brisket, smoked pork ribs, grilled beer-braised bratwurst sausage and street-style corn. Cocktail service will be available throughout the day in the ESPN Zone’s Patio lounge, with seating on a first come, first served basis.

Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria offers The Godfather Pizza on Saturday and Sunday: pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatball, green peppers, mushrooms, red onion, mozzarella and tomato sauce.

When dinnertime comes around, Catal tempts Dad with a three-course prime rib dinner, Sunday only.

If he is in more of a snacking mood, you could take him to Wetzel’s Pretzels Saturday or Sunday, where buying a pretzel and a drink will get him a free pretzel dog. Or, if he has more of a sweet tooth, get him a DAD Box at Sprinkles, available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The DAD box is loaded with his favorite treats, including Red Velvet, Salty Caramel, Black & White and Vanilla Milk Chocolate.

Lots to do, and lots to eat at Downtown Disney District this Father’s Day weekend, but I’m sure Dad has the energy for it. After all, energy is a big part of what fatherhood is about.

Star Wars-Themed Lands Come To Life as Construction Progresses at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts

Star Wars-Themed Lands Come To Life as Construction Progresses at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts

We’re excited to share an update today on the progress of the Star Wars-themed lands being created at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts!

As you may know, these two new immersive lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action.

We’re also creating two incredible new signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

With so much activity across our 14-acre construction sites as this new world is created, we wanted to show you how things are shaping up in this exclusive video – and you may not believe what you’re looking AT-AT.

‘Remember … Dreams Come True’ Returns To Disneyland Park Beginning Feb. 3

With the classic Main Street Electrical Parade coming home to Disneyland park on Jan. 20, spring 2017 is already shaping up to be a great blast to the past for Disneyland fans. Now there’s even more excitement in the air with the return of the beloved fireworks spectacular “Remember… Dreams Come True.”

sdkjf999

Initially presented as the evening highlight of the 50th anniversary of Disneyland Resort in 2005, “Remember… Dreams Come True” features Tinker Bell’s flight, brilliant fireworks, soaring music, dazzling special effects and an amazing journey through the various lands of Disneyland with archival audio tracks, favorite songs and familiar phrases from some of the park’s most popular attractions, past and present. I’m partial to seeing flame effects erupt from Sleeping Beauty Castle during the Indiana Jones Adventure sequence and the feeling of being in a virtual stretching room as fireworks launch straight into the sky to welcome the Haunted Mansion’s “Grim, Grinning Ghosts.”

What’s your favorite part of the show? Let us know in the comments section. Are you a fan of the quieter moments, like when “Shenandoah” plays, representing Rivers of America? Or do you get goosebumps when those five familiar, musical tones from Star Tours suddenly give way to the “Star Wars” theme, complete with lasers?

You’ll have a chance to relive all those moments and more, when “Remember… Dreams Come True” once again begins regular weekend performances on Feb. 3.
