What is the Disney Foodie blog hop? 
First – let’s get our terms straight. What, exactly, is a Foodie?
[box type=”info”] Foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news. Gourmets simply want to eat the best food, whereas foodies want to learn everything about food, both the best and the ordinary, and about the science, industry, and personalities surrounding food. — Wikipedia [/box]
So what’s a blog hop?
A blog hop is an event where bloggers gather to share their posts on a given theme. At the bottom of the Foodie Friday Blog Hop post, you’ll find a list of participating blogs. It’s a fun way to discover new blogs and revisit some old favorites. Be sure to leave a comment on the blogs you visit, follow the bloggers on Twitter, Facebook, or Google Friend Connect – if there’s one thing a blogger appreciates, it’s knowing that people read and enjoys their work!
Who Can Participate?

Any blogger who writes about food, Disney, or both. You don’t have to follow the weekly theme, and your blog doesn’t have to be all about food or Disney, but you should only link up posts that relate in some way to Disney food.

When Does the Blog Hop Run?

I’ll announce the following week’s theme on this page every Monday morning. The blog hop will open on Friday morning, and last until Monday evening – giving you plenty of time to cook up a storm on the weekend and blog about the magical results!

Spread the Word!

You can help the Disney Foodie Friday Blog Hop by posting the blog hop button on your blog.  You can also tweet about it, mention it on Facebook, and post about it on your blog.  The more Disney Foodie bloggers who participate, the more fun we all have!
