Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls podcast for, show number 143 for Sunday 29th January 2017. As always, if you wish to listen to the podcast, whilst reading this blog, you can click on the player below.

So what do we have in store for your this week? Well how about the trio of Disney food, art and music? Firstly, Michelle and Jayne talk through the menus of the kiosks at the brand new Festival of the Arts over at EPCOT. Then, we are joined by Curt Stone of Geekin on WDW Podcast, as he was fortunate enough to visit and enjoy the delights on offer.

Curt starts his day with a quick Test Track visit and then he goes over to Norway for some delicious treats from our firm favourite - Kringla Bakeri. If you listen to the podcast, you will hear him then talk through the delicious food that is on offer at the festival. To aid your salivations, Curt has kindly shared some pictures with us and we have also added some from the official website too.

Doesn't everything look amazing? Well... I'm not sure about the purple sweet potato pie! This from what we have heard is a more upmarket food kiosk offering than the Food and Wine Festival as the focus here is on the presentation and the food flavours. In fact, you could say the chefs have upped their creative skills in the plating of their offerings.  Pre-cronut, Curt also managed to meet Lou Mongello!

In addition, Curt visited the art element of the festival. Work was showcased from Herb Ryman and Mary Blair. In addition, there were drawing classes, chalk artists and contemporary Disney artists to visit. Plus, something he really enjoyed, you can have your picture taken whilst within famous pieces of art!

The final element of the festival was based around the muscial arts. Unfortunately, Curt didn't get to visit this but it features an array of well known stars from Disney on Broadway. All for the price of a park entrance ticket! If you manage to go, we would love to hear from you!
