The Week in Disney News – Epcot Food & Wine Festival Merchandise, D23 News, and August Events at Walt Disney World Resort
Disney gave fans a sneak peek of some of the merchandise for this year’s 20th anniversary of the Food and Wine Festival and it all looks incredible. From new Dooney & Bourke handbags to dishes, drinkware, clothing and more there’s something for everyone.
Speaking of merchandise, a new month means a new slate of special merchandise events at the Walt Disney World Resort. This month’s events include a Precious Moments event and two separate fragrance events in Epcot.
Last week it was also announced that the Garden Grill in Epcot’s The Land pavilion will begin serving breakfast and lunch on November 8. This fan-favorite character meal has long been a dinner-only affair. Lunch will be the same Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast that is served at dinner, but there is no official word yet about the breakfast menu.
And finally, the D23 Expo starts in a little more than two weeks in Anaheim and the news last week was all about the new merchandise coming to the Disney Consumer Products Pavilion at the Expo. Of course, fans are very eager to hear about the new plans for Disney Parks and Resorts at the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Pavilion.
The D23 Expo runs August 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
That’s the big news from last week! We’re sure this week will be full of fun and exciting news too. Stay tuned to DisZine for all the Disney news every week. And be sure to follow us on Twitter and like us over on Facebook.
