Review: DFB Snack Attack IllumiNations Dessert Party (Save the Date for our October Event!)

I’m excited to say that we just had another awesome Disney Food Blog Snack Attack and IllumiNations Dessert Party a couple of weeks ago!!

Watching Illuminations from a VIP location and eating Disney desserts? Yes, please!

It was so much fun to meet so many Disney Food Blog readers and supporters, and we lucked out with absolutely beautiful weather in Epcot for our VIP IllumiNations Dessert Party. Thank you all for coming!

The sun sets as we wait for the party to begin!

What’s Snack Attack?

Just in case you’re new to DFB, our Snack Attack events are special ticket-only evenings where we combine:

  • Our favorite Disney World snacks from all over the parks and resorts, AND
  • A private, VIP viewing area for IllumiNations, Reflections of Earth — the Epcot fireworks spectacular!

If you want to attend our next Snack Attack, save the date for October 2, 2013!! Tickets will go on sale soon!

Whaddya Eat at Snack Attack?

Well, we eat all of my favorite snacks…and DFB readers seem to like ‘em, too! These are served throughout the event, and are all-you-can-eat! Here’s a little sampling of some of the goodies…

Carrot Cake Cookies from Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (filled with gobs of cream cheese frosting!)

Real Disney Popcorn (in our own popcorn machine!!)

Disney Popcorn was popped on site and served in Disney popcorn containers!

Never-Ending Mickey Bars and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwiches

We had our own Ice Cream Cart filled with never-ending Mickey Bars!

And it was ALL delicious!

What About the Fireworks?

Yep! The food was awesome; but for many folks, the highlight of the evening is the great view of the IllumiNations Fireworks Spectacular.

Disney guests hold their spots for this show for hours, so to enjoy a close-up view without having to save your viewing location forever means more fun in Epcot!

We had a blast! Wanna join us next time? We’d love to have you!

Save the Date for the Next Disney Food Blog Snack Attack: October 2, 2013!
