In honor of those Disney fans heading to Tent Fest in Walt Disney World this weekend, I got the great suggestion to chat a bit about Disney s’mores!
S’mores on Demand
There are two restaurants that currently have fun s’mores desserts on the menu; the first is more of a kid-friendly version, while the second will satisfy any of our many grown-up marshmallow cravings:
Le Cellier’s colorful s’mores-on-a-stick has been a go-to kids’ dessert for years, and it never fails to impress. “Built” with a graham cracker, chocolate, and ice cream base, the “wow” factor comes with a sprinkle-y marshmallow topping it all off.
The 50’s Prime Time Cafe s’mores dessert is a more “gourmet” offering — mostly because they can use a blow torch to make it — but the fun of having those ooey gooey marshmallows arrive on your table will turn everyone into a kid again. This one’s big enough to share.
Sadly, we’ve lost the s’mores cheesecake from Pop Century…I haven’t seen it in years…
But, let’s not forget about the S’mores fudge that can be found throughout the parks!
Make ‘em Yourself
Also, many Disney World resorts have campfires with s’mores kits available each night! The most famous, of course, is Chip and Dale’s Campfire and Sing-a-long at Fort Wilderness (and I hope this is on the schedule for all of you TentFesters!). This campfire happens nightly, and includes fun and songs with Chip and Dale by the campfire, followed by a Disney movie projected on an outdoor screen! S’mores kits are available at the concession stand, and usually cost around five bucks. (You can always bring your own s’mores stuff, too.)
If you’re not ready to make the trek to Fort Wilderness and don’t mind missing the chipmunks, many Disney deluxe resorts offer campfires and s’mores on select nights of the week, including the the Beach and Yacht Clubs, the Contemporary Resort, and the Grand Floridian.
See ‘Em “Live”
AND, if you’re in WDW for this year’s Flower and Garden Festival, be sure to check out this cool S’mores topiary! I love this!
Now that you’re in a giant sugar coma, it’s time to crawl into your snuggly sleeping bags and turn in for the night. Sweet dreams, and have a great Tent Fest!
