After buying up all the pins and pirates goodies, Tommy and his family went over to Disney California Adventure to try out some delicious edibles from the Food and Wine Festival.
Seafood Breadbowl Soup
Mac n Cheese with Bacon
Salted Caramel Budino - Tommy's Top Pick
The food looked delicious and Tommy said what he tried, was amazing! He also tried some wine from the Kurt Russell winery but he found the cost a little bit high!

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls podcast for show number 148 for Sunday 5th March 2017. As always, if you wish to listen to the podcast, whilst reading this blog, you can click on the audio player below.

 
On this show, we are joined by our listener John Kretzu and he talks through two of his recent trips to Disneyland Paris and the Disneyland Resort.  
Disneyland Paris ready for Spring
As an American visitor to Paris, he highly recommends booking in advance and also trying out the dining plan as it gives you the opportunity to try out some of the delicious restaurants in the park - which if paying a al carte - can work out very expensive.

Our podcast has partnered with Holiday Hamster and can highly recommend their excellent customer service. So if you want to book a trip, no matter where in the world you live or where you wish to go - why not get in touch with them and tell them we sent you!

The Red Rose Taverne, Fantasyland in Disneyland, Anaheim

As a limited time magic experience, the Village Haus counter service in Disneyland has been transformed in to a Beauty and The Beast inspired eatery - namely the Red Rose Taverne.

Despite Jayne and I being over 4,500 miles away, we had to find out more to share with you all. So thanks to our wonderful friend in California, Tiffany Clontz, we are able to bring you pictures of the menu, some of the items on the menu and the interior. In addition, on our podcast 147 (released on Sunday 26th February 2017) we will be discussing this further.
Click to enlarge al pictures
Firstly, the menu. My personal favourite - the pastrami burger - has gone but it has been replaced with a very meatilicious Beast's burger. The fries served with it are identical to the ones offered at Cafe Orleans.

Jayne fancies the Enchanted Cauli-flower sandwich with the tempura green beans. The steak is a thick cut of the vegetable and if you opt to go minus the bun, this will be a paleo dieters delight - if you ignore the tempura and mayo!
Another favourite from the Village Haus for me has been their flatbreads... well there's plenty to choose, from including a version that is Poutinesq - ala fries!
But wait I hear you cry... we want the Grey Stuff (we've been told it is delicious!) well no need to worry, it is available! Tiffany really enjoyed it. Personally, I love the fact it is different to the version offered in Walt Disney World at The Be Our Guest Restaurant. Plus who doesn't love Red Velvet cake!
Various non-alcoholic drinks are available and you can purchase Gaston's brew. For an $8 upcharge, you can get it served in a souvenir stein. Additionally, there are rice crispy treats and Be Our Guest items to purchase. 
So now we have whetted your appetites but what is the interior like? Well as the name suggests, it no longer is the Village Haus but a tavern right out of Beauty and The Beast - namely The Red Rose Tavern. I am led to believe, everything added is removable as it will return to the Village Haus.
The wall murals are stunning and in addition, the main characters get a subtly done shelf and of course Gaston had to 'man' it up a little with some of his hunting trophies!
So what are you waiting for? Official opening is today - 24th February 2017. 

The Disney Dream Girls is a weekly podcast hosted by two Disney-loving English girls. Each show, along with an assortment of guests, they take a realistic look at the world of the Disney theme parks with reviews, history, fun discussion and a heavy dollop of foodie talk. The podcast can be found in all places that hosts podcasts such as iTunes and Stitcher Radio. Alternatively, each Sunday an audio player with show notes is released on our website.

On every trip, Tracey loves to start and end on Spaceship Earth. For her, it is one of those attractions that is perfection, relaxation and jaw-dropping everytime. So she tends to spend at least two days in EPCOT and another must is Illuminations.

As as well visiting with her family, Tracey has made some trips with her Mum. In the future she is planning a girls trip (for a special birthday) and she is hoping to tie it in with a Run Disney event too!
