Holidays Around the World Gets Even Sweeter for 2016!

Hi there, Disney Fans!
     Happy November! (OMG, can you believe it's NOVEMBER???) Halloween is over and it is officially time to start rolling in the holiday season here at Walt Disney World. Yup, we start early around here! In fact, most holiday decorations, events and celebrations will begin within the first two weeks of November. And then, starting November 25th and running through December 30th, one of my very favorite things to do during the holidays will be kicked up a notch this year!
     Epcot is the home to an awesome, international holiday celebration, appropriately titled "Holidays Around the World". Each of the countries in World Showcase is decked out in their holiday finest and in each location, you can learn about how the holiday season is celebrated, via live storytelling shows and other entertainment. But what are the holidays without FOOD???? Over the years, with the popularity of the food booths increasing at events like Food and Wine Festival and Flower and Garden Festival, Disney has started adding some themed holiday food items to the holiday celebration. This year, Epcot will introduce even more holiday food booths, giving Guests the chance to sample holiday treats from around the world. 
     Excited to check it out? I know I am! Here is a preview of some of our options:

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details. As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic is the upscale and elegant of the bunch when it comes to Main Dining Rooms.  As you'd expect being themed off a movie based in France, the menu is French inspired and this is where you will find some of the "fancier" food to give a try!  Lumiere's is located midship on Deck Three off the main atrium.  There are two entrances, the main entrance is off the atrium and the one from the hallway around the side is accessible and often used when there is an event or activity in the atrium.  Lumiere's is often also open for other meals throughout the day, and has a more standard menu when this is the case. Main entrance from the atrium While French food can be intimidating, Disney does a great job making the menu approachable and still a bit familiar while working in some French influence and flavors.  If you are still a little weary of escargot, one of the best things about a Disney Cruise is that if you don't like something, t
