Tony’s Town Square Menu Changes

Tony’s Town Square now has the same menu for lunch and dinner so they no longer have to switch over.  This allows the restraunt to stay open longer and have a large capacity.
Hear our review of Tony’s Town Square on Mouse Chat.

Disney EPCOT Food and Wine 

Epcot food and wine now has a special package for $199 a person.

Here are the details for Epcots Food and Wine Package from Disney’s Park Blog site:

Now for some brand-new “Premium” fun! From noon-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday during a select festival period (September 22-November 6), the Epcot Food & Wine Festival Premium Package is an opportunity for guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel (or the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels) to sip and savor in style. The package includes an in-room gift with wine for guests 21 and older, a festival wine glass, truffles and credential for the Premium Package Areas at the festival – plus an Epcot International Food & Wine Festival MagicBand and a $50 Disney Gift Card to start the fun. The credential gives access to 10 VIP “Premium Package Areas” around World Showcase Promenade where you can order items from Marketplaces and have them delivered to you – no waiting in line. You can also bring your favorite marketplace treats into the Premium Package Areas and just relax. The package also includes one admission to Epcot Food & Wine Festival – Late Nights LIVE!, which you can attend on Thursday night.

Cost is $199 per guest, plus tax, plus Epcot admission.

All of us at Mouse Chat have several other ideas for how you can spend $199 each on a much nicer experience.  So please listen to our show.

Disney Cruise Line Halloween Cruise

Disney Cruise Line Halloween Cruises are booking up fast and offer some really cool and fun extras.  We took the Disney Cruise Line Halloween cruise before with our two kids and it was just “ok”.  But now Disney Cruise Line has really improved the Halloween extras for these sailings.

Disney Cruise Line Halloween

1. The Pumpkin Tree
Looming eerily over the atrium lobby, the Pumpkin Tree magically blooms with Jack-O-Lanterns during the cruise. And on the final evening, the pumpkins let their bright personalities shine—literally!—during a spooky surprise performance.

2. Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party
Who doesn’t love a family costume party with Disney characters? Plus, our “super” Cruise Staff get in on the fun with enough treats to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.

3. A Nightmare Before Christmas—Sing and Scream
Guests aboard our Halloween cruises get to experience this classic holiday film like never before with 3-D and 4-D effects, followed by an exclusive meet-and-greet with Jack and Sally.

4. Halloween Isn’t Just for Kids
The adult nightlife district aboard each Disney ship becomes the frightfully fun setting for an adult-only costume contest and electrifying dance party, proving once and for all that Halloween isn’t just for kids!

5. Haunted Stories of the Sea
Only the bravest cruisers dare to gather under the stars to hear haunted tales of the sea told by a mysterious sea captain. Is it just me, or are ghost stories scarier in the middle of the ocean?

  1. 6 minutes in and you’re having in depth conversation about croissants?? Not why I clicked on this. The previous podcast I tried had 5 minutes of banter before any Disney conversation even started. I’m trying one more, but if there is more fluff, time sucking, irrelevant banter I’m out and won’t be back.

    • Thanks Tessa for the comments. It’s always a difficult mix for us. We have lots of fans that go to Disney and then want to keep listening week to week even after their trip is over.

      We have some fans that want just the five Disney Tips and and then want to move on.
      So it’s difficult to create a show that does both. Our style has been more of a Disney morning show. We like to cover the topics but also have a little discussion off the main topic too.
