On July 8th Disney World will begin offering a new backstage tour that will take you right into a Disney kitchen. The new “Disney Family Culinary Adventure” tour whisks guests backstage for a fun, interactive evening that includes plenty of time with the Disney chefs, hands-on cooking and a festive, five-course dinner with beer and wine served in the kitchen by the professional catering staff. The backstage adventure takes place in the kitchen at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and can be enjoyed by both adults and kids.

Mainly aimed at guests 9 and older, the evening starts at 5 p.m. with a friendly introduction to the massive catering kitchen. A maximum of 30 guests put on aprons, hats and gloves and are divided into five cooking groups. And every station has a wow technique, from the ease of making homemade butter to a fresh pasta with just three ingredients.

Once the food prep is complete, guests move freely about the big kitchen to chat with the chefs – no culinary question goes unanswered. It takes about an hour for all the prep work, then everyone is seated at a long table in the center of the kitchen to enjoy the five-course meal they’ve just prepared. (Vegetarian, vegan and selections for guests with allergies are options for dinner.)

Lights are dimmed, background music plays, and a toast begins the special meal, where each course is served with wine and beer. At the meal’s end a special molecular gastronomy demonstration wows guests (we’ll keep that a secret), and they receive a special toque (chef’s hat) to take home, along with a Disney cookbook signed by the chefs.

The program is planned two evenings a week (days vary), starting at 5 p.m. Cost is $175 plus tax, $125 plus tax for ages 9 to 12. (Younger guests may have their own cooking station.) Complimentary transportation is provided for Disney Resort hotel guests. To book or for more information, call 407-WDW-PLAY.

For the first time ever in the Festival’s 20 year history the marketplaces will expand into Future World. The new festival area will be called “Next Eats” and will include both a marketplace called Sustainable Chew Marketplace and a Chew Lab, a look into food-science. The new marketplace will feature three dishes from the ABC program “The Chew”. Savory pork spareribs with cheesy mascarpone grits, Ricotta and zucchini ravioli with tomato sauce and Vanilla panna cotta with fresh figs and pistachio brittle.

The ABC program “The Chew” will also show up at Epcot to tape their show at the festival. The taping will happen in front of a live audience October 7, 8 and 9th. Visit the thechew.com for more information of how to get tickets.
