The Polite Pig Signage Installed at Disney Springs; "Modern BBQ" Restaurant Opening this Spring

Hi everyone!

The Polite Pig is the newest restaurant arriving soon to Disney Springs, serving "Modern BBQ and Taps". A sister restaurant to the very popular The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park , most of the signage on the restaurant still says they arrive in spring, though one sign nails down April as the scheduled opening month. Permanent signage has been added in the past few days, here is a look at it from both sides.

Review: Royal Tea Garden Tour During Epcot Flower & Garden Festival is Worthy Addition to Free Tour (with Tea & Scones Included in $15.00 Price)

Hi everyone!

Epcot's United Kingdom pavilion has offered free English Tea Garden tours for years during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. While that is still the case, there is now a new offering. For $15.00, guests can book a Royal Tea Garden Tour, which includes a similar but extended tour, with the addition of a full cup of tea and two scones. Guests can also shop in the Tea Caddy before it opens to the public. Right now, the tour can only be booked ahead of time by calling 1-407-WDW-TOUR. I am not sure if that will change. It felt like there was still some fluidity in the tour process, including the time that guests need to arrive by. Only about 15 guests can participate in the paid version each day, which begins and ends before World Showcase officially opens. While our group did not comprise 15 guests, I think that will happen as word gets out on the tour. The official start time is 9:30 a.m. (more info on that below), with just one Royal Tea Garden Tour per day.

Geir Ness to Launch Signature Disney "Frozen in a Bottle" Fragrance on March 1st, 2017

Hi everyone!

Frozen in a Bottle is the newest fragrance coming from Norwegian fragrance designer Geir Ness on March 1st, 2017. If you've ever walked through the Norway pavilion at Epcot (which you would if riding the former Maelstrom or the newer Frozen Ever After attraction), you have smelled fragrances by Geir Ness. I am a big fan of the Laila lotion, which I buy for gifts each year and has been a staple of the pavilion for just about 20 years with other products in the Laila line. Now, Geir Ness is bringing the spirit of Norway and the hit film to Frozen in a Bottle, which will be available online, in the parks, and on the Disney Cruise Line (Epcot will be the first park to carry it, the rest may follow mid-month). Read below for the press release! I hope they bring the fragrance to a lotion eventually as well.
