Goodbye Maelstrom

In case you are not aware the last boat ride of Maelstrom into the wintery mysteries of Norway will take place this Sunday, October 5, 2014. The announcement came as a shocker to most Epcot fans; however, the rumor of its Frozen-themed replacement surfaced on the Internet a few months ago and I can admit that I did not believe it. I swore my friends up and down that there was absolutely NO WAY Disney would close such a classic and replace it with, what I felt was, a temporary cultural fad.

But as I continued to think about it, I realized that Maelstrom was no different from Horizons, World of Motions, or even El Rio Del Tiempo.

Best Thing I Ever Ate: L’Artisian des Glaces at Epcot

It’s time for ThemeParkHipster’s Best Thing I Ever Ate series!

Can I say OMG! Where have I been for the past few ThemePark years! Thanks to the wonderful blogger over at Disney Food Blog (and a couple of my friends) for informing me about this wonderful mouthwatering experience at Epcot’s L’Artisian des Glaces. And yes I said experience because it was so much more than an ice-cream treat. The Croque Glace is the type of foodie adventure you have to sit down, be quiet and just relish in the party that’s taking place on your palate.
