TPH’s 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery Quest 2013

Dessert overload with sweetness swirling throughout my palate, sugarplums dancing on my plates, and divine nectar of the vine to quench my thirst were all a part of my dining experience during my 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery adventure at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.

3D Disney's Dessert Discovery

This event was recommended to me a couple of years ago, but the cost was way too steep for me at the time especially since I didn’t know what the experience entailed. When I was presented with the offer to go this year by my dear friend I felt as if this was the time to do it. After all, we’re supposed to be on this YOLO kick, lol…and let me tell you that we were two big adults (along with a packed out room full of adults) who were literally acting like children in a candy store with grown-up beverages galore to keep us all laughing, eating, singing, and dancing to the tunes of the sugary band.

As we hopped our way around to The World Showplace Events Pavilion, the tasty treats were divided into six sections that had delicious dishes with spirits to compliment the taste.

As you can see the night was a success and the cherry on top was watching the Illuminations Fireworks show with the special 3D glasses; an experience that took an already spectacular show to an amazing level.  All I can say is a combination of sugar overload, a few cocktails ingested, and a fireworks show with 3D Mickey heads coming straight at you makes for a pretty awesome night at EPCOT to me!
