The Writer’s Stop is an unassuming little bookstore. It offers comfy chairs and couches, books lining the walls from floor to ceiling, every coffee drink you can dream of…and baked goods. That’s right, this is another location in Disney’s Hollywood Studios harboring a “You Won’t Believe This!” Snack!
While most folk just wander right past this little corner store on their way to the American Idol Experience, Toy Story Mania, or Tower of Terror, there are a few of us who feel the call of the item that has made The Writer’s Stop famous: the Carrot Cake Cookie.
Speaking of unassuming, you can’t even see the Carrot Cake Cookie in the bakery counter display. It’s shrouded in a paper bag until purchased. Seriously — how are you supposed to know what you’re getting?! I guess you’ll have to take my word for it
But once you have one in your hot little hands, you won’t be able to help yourself. Find yourself some seating (my favorite spot is a little “study nook” by the front windows of the shop — if it feels like you’re back in your College Library stacks, you’ve found it!) and get down to business.
The moist cake is decent (anyone else wish there were raisins and walnuts in there?), but anyone who knows me knows that that’s not what I’m after.
Just leave me with a fork and the pile of thick cream cheese frosting and I’ll be juuuuuuuust fine.
At least until the sugar shock sets in. Yeah. Then I’ll need a nap. By the way — at around $3, this is a less expensive snack. And, of course, you can use your dining plan snack credit!
Have you tried the carrot cake cookie? What did you think? Does it top your list of favorite snacks, or are there others that you’d order first? Let us know in the comments section below!
