The Virtual Food & Wine Festival ~ France

Bonjour!
Welcome to The Virtual Food & Wine Festival. In honor of Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival we have joined together with a great group of Disney Bloggers for a Virtual Food and Wine Festival!
You're all invited to virtually eat your way around the World Showcase! 


___________________

One country that always stands out in my mind when sampling pastries in the World Showcase is France. Making pastries at home is a challenge for me but I've found a recipe that's easy and delicious from Disneyland's Club 33′s, the Pumpkin Beignets. The hardest part was waiting for them to cook. These tasty beignets filled with fall flavor are now my families favorite and will surely be yours too. We enjoyed them right after picking our homegrown pumpkins which you can almost see in the picture above. A taste of France and homegrown fun made for a perfect autumn weekend.
Here's what you'll need to get started. Chef Duffy is an optional ingredient. He's our Virtual Food & Wine Festival mascot. Chef Duffy has helped us create recipes from around Epcot's Word Showcase, Germany and Greece . But, don't go there now. First, check out this Pumpkin Beignets Recipe and all the blogs who have linked up their international dishes.

"Nashville" - The Complete Second Season DVD {Review} and Giveaway


"Nashville: The Complete Second Season"


One of my favorite TV indulgences is ABC's hit show "Nashville". It's just the right mix for me of drama, music and intrigue. Season 3 has just started and I can't wait to see what happens next.
Throughout last season I tried to make sure I didn't miss an episode but you know how that goes.
So when The Complete Second Season became available to me I jumped at the chance to revisit my favorite episodes and catch up on the ones I missed.
Now you can too!  I have a DVD set (it's only available on DVD) to offer as a giveaway for one of  my readers. Scroll on down below to enter.

Hidden Mickey - New Fantasyland

Our Hidden Mickey this week can be found in the stroller parking area just outside of the Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World.
Do you see him? I've outlined it for you. This is a tough one to spot and you may have parked your stroller in front of it or even sat on the wall without noticing it. I know I would have totally missed this one if the fabulous Cast Member, Alli hadn't pointed it out to me one bright sunny day.
 With a splash of water to add contrast the outline of the Hidden Mickey is revealed.

DuckTales Theme Song with Real Ducks! Disney Celebrates Back to School with Œ90s Themed #ThrowbackToSchool Week

{Disney Release}
From now through September 14, Disney.com and the Disney Blogs will be talking about all things ¹90s in celebration of Back to School.


 We¹re throwing back to when you wore out your cassette tapes listening to ³Hakuna Matata², or crimped your hair to look like Topanga from 'Boy Meets World.' The Disney Blogs are bringing back the Œ90s with:

· DuckTales with Real Ducks [VIDEO]: The Oh My Disney team recreated a live-action version of the original DuckTales theme song video featuring real live ducklings. Needless to say, it¹s adorable and pretty hilarious.

· Which Disney Afternoon TV Show are You? [QUIZ]: From Darkwing Duck to Chip Œn Dale Rescue Rangers, find out which Œ90s TV show you¹d be cast in.

· Disney Characters Reimagined for the Œ90s: Check out original artwork of what some of your favorite Disney characters would look like if they lived in the ¹90s.

On Disney.com we¹ve also built a special portal that looks straight out of the Œ90s to showcase our throwback content (and give guests major nostalgia). Check it out here: http://di.sn/bpP

Fans are encouraged to Tweet/Instagram their Œ90s photos with #ThrowbackToSchool for the chance to be featured on Disney Blogs. We want it all: the Jasmine shirt you wore 24/7, the Disney Halloween costume you rocked in elementary school, and the sweet styles you wore to the Disney Parks.

What's your favorite Disney TV Show from the 90s? Mine is Duck Tales - WooHoo♫♪
