Food Blog Forum 2013 – Walt Disney World – Grand Floridian Resort

Food Blog Forum Orlando 2013 was an exciting full-day event at Walt Disney World for food bloggers on the weekend of Saturday, May 18. I had went last year and had such a wonderful time that I wanted to go again this year – and thankfully I was one of the few who made it on the site in the first ten minutes to sign up in time!

This event was produced by Food Blog Forum with Jaden & Scott Hair of Steamy Kitchen, Todd & Diane of White On Rice Couple, Julie Deily of The Little Kitchen and Lindsay Landis of Love & Olive Oil and sponsored by Walt Disney World, Florida Milk, KitchenAid, and OXO. Pam Brandon, Karen McClintock, and all the wonderful staff at Disney really did an excellent job hosting all of us…truly a master feat.
