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)
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.
The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival for 2017 has now begun and will last through May 29th. Each year is a little different, and it's always fun to watch the buildup to the Festival over the weeks prior to the kickoff. Here are my tips for 2017, and I'll link to a larger photo article once I have that up. This is our 11th year covering the Festival! I always say how this is my favorite time of year at Walt Disney World, it's also the most beautiful time at Epcot.
Rivers of Light is now open at Disney's Animal Kingdom park! Originally scheduled to open April 22nd, 2016 (Earth Day), it took over nine more months to debut to guests. We were there for the first preview day, a week before the actual February 17th opening. Here is a look at photos and video from the show, with thoughts on the dining packages and more. We also have a look at the merchandise at the end of the article.
