2015 Epcot Candlelight Processional Packages Now On Sale

The Epcot Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite Theme Park Christmas traditions to do at Walt Disney World. Each guest at Epcot is entertained with the jubilant reciting of the divine holiday story presented in true Disney fashion. The story is usually told by celebrity narrators such as Neil Patrick Harris and Whoopi Goldberg; accompanied with a 50-piece orchestra and a magnificent mass choir.

Test Track Brings Food to the Race with Taste Track!

Test Track at Epcot introduces a new quick service kiosk called Taste Track. The new food and beverage location at Epcot is serving up a creative twist on one of America’s favorite sandwiches, the grilled cheese.

According to Disney Parks Blog, Test Track’s Taste Track offers the Gruyere and Applewood smoked bacon with an option to spice it up to the Fontina and tomato basil version. If you’d like to try a sweet rendition on the classic sandwich (which is pretty cool), then you should try the Canadian cheddar and apples grilled cheese sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread.
