419 - The Disney News Natter

Welcome to this week's Disney Dream Girls Podcast - show number 419 for Sunday 17th July 2022. 

If you would like to ensure you never miss a show, please subscribe to us via your podcast catching place or alternatively you can listen in using the audio player below.On this week's show we have a bit of a natter about a range of news items, from merchandise released for the Food and Wine Festival (over at EPCOT), the reporting log sinking at Splash Mountain in Walt Disney World before ending off chatting about the rumoured return of a much loved Disney attraction.

We love a good piece of merchandise and this year's Food and Wine Festival has plenty for us to add to our wish list! 


We also discuss that many character meals are returning. For some these are a fabulous way to meet the characters whilst enjoying class Disney food. However, for others the price makes in out of reach. What's your thoughts? Let us know!


We also discuss attractions from ride breakdowns to possible bringing back past fan favourites. What attraction would you like to see come back?

We have everything from a 50th Celebration Cone to Dole Whip with Nachos to a Flight featuring a trio of flavours and of course something with a little punch!

And what better to pair with your float than a sweet taste from Gideons Bakehouse; there's sure to be a cookie to satisfy everyone. How about Peanut Butter Crunch or Pistachio Toffee Chocolate Chip or good old Triple Chocolate Chip.

Or perhaps a slice of cake is more your style...red velvet anyone?

417 - EPCOT's International Food and Wine Festival

Welcome to this week's Disney Dream Girls Podcast - show number 417 for Sunday 3rd July 2022. 

If you would like to ensure you never miss a show, please subscribe to us via your podcast catching place or alternatively you can listen in using the audio player below.

On this week's show, we look ahead to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. As Michelle will be visiting, she shares what she will be trying and Jayne makes some suggestions too (although there was a bit of a heated debate over a few items!).

Jayne's List

Starting in Australia and with something that Michelle will adore we have the lamington; yellow cake with raspberry filling dipped in chocolate and coconut...mmm.

Next, we head to Brew Wing but not for the wings but instead the crispy Brussel Sprouts with buffalo sauce.

A new offering this year is The Fry Basket and the Fry Flight sounds amazing! It is a trio of sea salt and malt vinegar fries, barbecued bacon fries with smoked a├»oli and Sweet potato casserole fries with candied pecans, toasted marshmallow cream and caramel whisky.  

And all to be washed down with a Salty Dog Cocktail: Boyd & Blair Vodka with grapefruit juice, ginger, simple syrup, and lime with a salted rim!

The one item Michelle may not be took keen on though was the SPAM Musubi Nigiri with sushi rice, teriyaki-glazed SPAM, spicy mayonnaise, eel sauce, and nori from Hawai'i. Although the AULANI Sunrise: Vodka, DOLE pineapple juice, and grenadine may make it bearable.

There were a few more items suggested by Jayne that may or may not have been to Michelle's liking so you'll have to listen to find out more.

Michelle's List 

So many delicious things! But I had to try to keep it to a minimum!

From the Alps, I am going for the warm raclette swiss cheese with Riesling-poached pears, red wine-braised figs, candied pecans, honey and cranberry toast. 

Then, to Canada for their delicious cheddar and bacon soup with also the wild mushroom filet mignon - mmm.

I had to include something from France so how about a beignet with three warm cheeses? 

For dessert we both agreed on the mini Pina Colada funnel cake. 

We would love to hear from you if you have a trip to Food and Wine planned - share your top tips and ask us any questions you may have!
