That was fast! The school buses are back on the road, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is under way, and pumpkin spice abounds everywhere. The summer of 2018 is saying goodbye with the arrival of fall events and flavors.
Disney Springs is getting in on the season change this year with their WonderFall Flavors food and beverage program starting September 7, 2018. The program includes sweet and savory food that you can pair with hard ciders and autumn-inspired cocktails. This seasonal celebration includes more than 14 restaurants and quick service locations throughout Disney Springs.

Fall-Inspired Hard Ciders at Dockside Margaritas and Select Outdoor Vending Carts:
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider: This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.
Angry Orchard RosÃ© Cider: Made with rare, red flesh apples from France. Each apple is crisp, juicy and red to the core, adding an irresistible rosy blush and apple-forward taste with a refreshing dry finish.
Ayinger Oktober Fest-MÃ¤rzen: Rich, amber-golden color. Deep, inviting, malty nose and bready, wonderful flavor that’s an ode to barley. Medium to big body, with a touch of warming alcohol on the finish.
Margarita Cider by 3 Daughters Brewing: Hard cider blended with lime juice and sea salt then aged in tequila barrels for a festive and unique flavor. This semi-sweet apple cider is tart and refreshing and perfect for Florida.
Pumpking Imperial Ale by Southern Tier Brewing Co.: This beer gives off hints of pumpkin pie and spice aromas on the nose. Huge flavors of genuine pumpkin pie, nutmeg, and cinnamon come through with a rich and creamy, yet crisp taste.
Samuel Adams OctoberFest: The first thing you notice when pouring this seasonal beer is the color. It has a deep golden amber hue, which itself is reflective of the fall season.
