This is the story of my six jammy-packed days at Walt Disney World on the occasion of Epcot’s 30th birthday, including D23’s day-long celebration capped by desserts in Spaceship Earth’s Siemens Lounge, extensive touring of the Food & Wine Festival, a stay in the brand-new Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation, a tour of the Creative Costuming Department at Hollywood Studios, and dinner inside The Great Movie Ride (thanks to D23’s Sip & Scream event).

I also took my dessert party obsession to new heights when I managed to attend two Epcot dessert parties SIMULTANEOUSLY after D23 scheduled its party to coincide with the Disney Food Blog’s Snack Attack!

    Yeah a new one! I live in Orlando and go to the parks all the time, but it is so much fun to see what fun things you experience.
