A Magical Experience ~ Food Blog Forum Orlando [Walt Disney World]

So I had the amazing opportunity to go to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL for Food Blog Forum Orlando. I felt so lucky to be one of the food bloggers to attend. It was truly a Magical Experience. I can’t even put into words how much I appreciate all of the hard work that everyone put into this event. It was a really special event.

I learned so much from so many talented people. Everyone was so willing to help others and I loved seeing that. A special thanks to Disney World, Whole Foods, Julie of The Little Kitchen (who did such a wonderful job organizing!), Steamy Kitchen (Jaden & Scott), White On Rice Couple (Diane & Todd) and to all of the  sponsors (OXO, KitchenAid, Le Creuset, Land ‘O Lakes, Bob’s Red Mill, Spice Islands, Goo Goo Clusters, King Arthur Flour, Scharffen Berger, and anyone else I forgot). The Door Prizes were totally crazy and everyone was so generous! I mean seriously, TWO APPLIANCES as well as countless KitchenAid Mixers, LeCreuset Dutch Ovens, and many other prizes. But they weren’t even the highlight of the weekend.  All of the information that we all went home with was the main prize. And that’s a fact.

The accommodations were spectacular, the 4 day park hoppers were generous, the food was delectable and the people there were just plain remarkable. I could go on and on about this past weekend and ramble on for hours, but I’d rather show you how magnificent it was in pictures. Because I had so much fun trying to capture these wonderful moments on camera ~ even if it was an iPhone camera!

I had these on my AirTran flight and they are my favorite now!
I ordered some from Amazon when I got home.

All of the information that I learned there was priceless. I don’t think I can thank everyone enough for allowing me to be part of this event. There are so many talented food writers and photographers out there and I’m so proud to be a part of that.

I was on a mission for Cupcakes when I was there, and you will get to read about that in another post! Because it wouldn’t be a trip without a Cupcake!

  1. I am still trying to process everything that I learned at FBFOrlando – such a treasure trove of info, amazing bloggers and don’t even get me started on those caramels (which I’m REALLY tempted to order – Chipotle Caramels – I. Die.).
