Now through Sept. 2, enjoy a slice of summer flavors with a selection of Florida-inspired paired dishes, cocktails and brews at 20 dining locations at Disney Springs for the “Flavors of Florida” experience.

We were recently invited as media to check out the experience first hand. The menus focus on iconic Florida flavors — think Key Lime Pie, fresh seafood, citrus-inspired dishes, refreshing craft cocktails and local Florida brews. There’s even alligator on a menu or two. Dining options on the menu range from sit-down to grab-and-go.

Pick up a pamphlet at any of the participating restaurants or at the Welcome Center (located next to D-Luxe Burger in the Town Center Area). It’s kind of like a self-guided foodie scavenger hunt – and actually this is the 4th self-guided food and beverage experience ever at Disney Springs. Maybe next year we can get these babies stamped with unique stamps from each vendor like they do at some other food events in the area :).

Some of my favorites that we tried included the blood orange mousse from Amorette’s Patisserie, and the fantastic Florida orange chocolate square at The Ganachery. If you are a beer lover, definitely try La Playita from The Tank Brewing, a craft brewery based in Miami, Florida – love the floral, citrus notes of this beer that makes it absolutely refreshing.
