    In other areas of the Disney company, people hope for “a big night at the Oscars.” At Walt Disney World , the wish is for “a big night at the Doves.” The Dove Awards, presented by the Gospel Music Association, honor the best music, performances and performers in Christian music. Inasmuch as Disney World hosts Night of Joy , one of the country’s best-known contemporary Christian music events, there’s a hope each spring that the artists coming to Night of Joy do well at the Doves. Well, Night of Joy 2010 artists had a HUGE night at the Doves! Nine of the 15 artists who’ll be performing at the Magic Kingdom Sept.

    New treats for the taste buds await Walt Disney World guests this fall – a season that also will feature treats for the ears of music-lovers, treats for the eyes of art-lovers and sports fans, treats that make good “scents” and lots of just plain trick-or-treats. Fall is traditionally a season of special events at the Vacation Kingdom, and 2010 will be no exception as the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Night of Joy, Festival of the Masters, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the Children’s Miracle Network Classic for PGA players and the Old Spice Classic all return – to be joined by an all-new running event.  And to top it off: There will be new dining adventures, new digs for Fido, and a place to make a “new you.” Here’s a snapshot of what’s in store, beginning with what’s “all new”: New adventures in dining During fall 2010, new culinary adventures coming to the Vacation Kingdom include an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and a Latin chicken restaurant, while a popular Mexican restaurant reopens with a fresh menu and expanded seating: In Italy at Epcot World Showcase, Via Napoli , an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria operated by the Patina Restaurant Group, will feature wood-burning ovens – and will import water from a source that most resembles the water in Naples, Italy, home of some of the world’s best pizza dough.  This 300-seat pizzeria will feature a menu inspired by the famous pizzerias of southern Italy.  The menu also will feature pastas, salads, sandwiches and Italian wines.  The Patina Restaurant Group also operates Tutto Italia Ristorante at the pavilion. At Downtown Disney Marketplace, Pollo Campero , an international Latin chicken quick-service restaurant chain, has partnered with franchisee Levy Campero to deliver a new restaurant concept.  The restaurant will showcase Pollo Campero’s signature Latin chicken (which features the taste of lime and orange juices, red bell peppers and a special blend of Latin herbs and spices) as well as a new fresh concept named Fresh A-Peel (featuring fresh salads, sandwiches, fruits and healthy snacks) plus vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, low-sodium or organic offerings. In Mexico at Epcot World Showcase, an expanded Cantina de San Angel restaurant will feature 400 combined seats with al fresco seating for quick-service meals plus a new, air-conditioned table-service restaurant featuring authentic specialty dishes from Mexico created by the talented culinary team at San Angel Inn, LLC., which has operated the food service at the Mexico pavilion for more than 25 years. New digs for Fido and Frisky Slated for a late-summer opening, a full-service luxury pet care facility on Bonnet Creek Parkway across from Disney’s Port Orleans Resort will provide a comfortable home-away-from-home for Fido, Frisky and all their pet pals!  The one-of-a-kind facility will be able to accommodate up to 270 dogs in a variety of standard and luxury suites, some with private outdoor patios and play yards.  The separate “Kitty City” pavilion will be able to house up to 30 cats in two- and four-story cat condos.  A special room is also available for the boarding of “pocket pets,” Including pet hamsters and birds. The facility, to be operated by Best Friends Pet Care, will comprise more than 17,000 square feet of air-conditioned indoor space plus 10,000 square feet of covered outdoor runs and play areas.  It will replace the five existing pet care facilities throughout Walt Disney World Resort and will be open to both Walt Disney World Resort guests and visitors staying off-property. New ‘Re-treats’ for your skin In time for fall, Givenchy is opening a shop at the France pavilion in Epcot that will be the only retail location in the United States to offer the full line of Givenchy make-up and skin-care products, as well as a large selection of Givenchy fragrances. New ‘ultimate night out’ for runners Imagine a foot race that starts at 10 p.m. and finishes, 13.1 miles later, with an exclusive party replete with culinary delights and specialty drinks from around the world.  That’s the scenario for the signature race of the inaugural Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend on Oct. 1-2.
