D-Living Transforms into Beauty & the Beast Store at Disney Springs

Tue, 2017-02-07 01:21
D-Living has recently transformed its decor and offerings to a full Beauty and the Beast collection:

... Guests will discover a charming boutique inspired by the opulent castle in “Beauty and the Beast.” Look for home decor, furnishings and goods with a whimsically, modern flair. There is also an extensive collection of framed artwork and collectible figurines featuring characters from the animated feature.

... many details throughout the shop that give a nod to this classic tale. Displays include numerous stacks of books; a paper rose made from book pages; and an ornate Rococo-style bed.

Guests will find unique women’s apparel created especially for this location including three t-shirts and one zip fleece.

It is expected that the store will continue to rotate through different store-wide curated collections. The store originally opened with a collection celebrating Christmas and Winter Holidays. Attached Images

New Menu for Gasparilla Island Grill at Disney's Grand Floridian

Tue, 2017-02-07 00:07
Gasparilla Island Grill has a new menu following a recent refurbishment:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts ... Gasparilla Island Grill has reopened with a new menu. Elevated flavors, artisanal ingredients and great attention to detail can be found through each station – hot sandwiches and pizzas, the sandwich and salad bar and the coffee and dessert station. The new tastes are a result of the collaboration several Grand Floridian chefs—including Grand Floridian Executive Chef, Scott Hunnel, Grand Floridian Executive Pastry Chef,Erich Herbitschek and Chef Noah Estabrook.

At the Sandwich Bar, you will see beautifully plated slates of the sandwich ingredients in a glass display. A technique found in boutique bakeries in France, each sandwich is assembled as you order, keeping the bread—which is baked fresh in house daily—perfectly crusty. Look for fresh, high-quality ingredients, such as Tillamook Cheddar on the smoked ham sandwich, Florida orange vinaigrette on the roasted turkey, thick slices of Mozzarella on the grilled vegetable sandwich and roast beef with horseradish. Each sandwich is served with house-made chips. You’ll find the popular “Create-Your-Own-Salad” option in the same area, which can be topped with flank steak or marinated chicken. In the morning, this area becomes a yogurt bar, allowing guests to build parfaits with toppings such as fresh fruits, granola and bananas in a decadent caramel sauce.

To the left of the sandwich bar, you’ll find hot sandwiches and thin crust pizza. Each pizza—which cooks in 90 seconds at 840 degrees—is served on pizza dough made in-house daily by Chef Erich’s team at the Grand Floridian Bakery. Choose from sausage and Mozzarella, fire-roasted tomatoes with basil pesto and a three-cheese blend, or Chef Scott’s favorite, the chicken and mushroom, with a heavenly cream sauce that can only be described as decadent. For hot sandwiches, you’ll find the artisanal burger features 7 ounces of a signature beef blend, bacon and Cheddar cheese on a freshly-baked Brioche bun; a Mahi Mahi “Ruben,” featuring house-made cabbage slaw on marble Rye bread and Chef Noah’s recommendation, the Chicken & Brie is a delicious twist on Chicken Cordon Bleu—with ham, spinach, raspberry mustard on a Brioche bun.

The final station features specialty coffees and beautiful baked goods, pastries and sweets made by the Grand Floridian Bakery. Look for Coconut Pot de Crème, Almond Fruit Tart, Chocolate Mousse Pie, Mickey Brownie, Minnie Mouse Cupcake, and assorted cookies and other sweet treats.

Avatar Land Opening Date?

Mon, 2017-02-06 21:08
We will be in WDW 8/26-9/3/17. I am hearing "Summer 2017" for opening of Avatar Land. Any idea if this is likely to happen? Have never seen the movie and cannot say I am overly excited by the opening right now but will certainly want to check it out if it is open. Thanks.

Blizzard Beach Vs Typhoon Lagoon

Mon, 2017-02-06 21:01
Will be at WDW at the end of August with DS 8, DS 11, and DW. We have always done Blizzard Beach, twice year the last few times. We really enjoy Teamboat Springs and do it multiple times. The boys also do some of the smaller raft rides on their own and we do some of the 2 person raft rides and the lazy river as well.

I was thinking of doing one day at each water park this coming summer. We usually start 3-4 hours and do it in the morning when the parks open.

Just looking to hear what everyone has to say about Typhoon Lagoon. Thanks.
