Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland in Walt Disney World is home to the uber-popular Be Our Guest Restaurant, and we’ve got some awesome menu updates for you today!
The Master’s Cupcake — A.K.A. The “Grey Stuff” Cupcake!
Beauty and the Beast fans will recall that Lumiere encourages Belle to “try the grey stuff, it’s delicious, don’t believe me?, ask the dishes!”
Since the restaurant opened, guests have been able to try “the grey stuff” as a special celebration dessert.
But now they’ve created an entire cupcake celebrating this sweet surprise! Check it out!!
Yep — the grey stuff (which is actually a cookies and cream panna cotta that’s been whipped into a creamy dessert) tops a chocolate cupcake in the Beast’s castle these days! It’s the same price and size as all lunch cupcakes: $3.19, and you can get it for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit. It’s now the top dessert item listed on the menu.
The base is moist chocolate cake with a huge, lovely mound of Lumiere’s Grey Stuff on the top (it ends up being more than what you receive at dinner), complete with the little sparkly, crunchy garnish and a decorated chocolate topper.
I’ve tried Grey Stuff at dinner, and it’s the exact same, wonderful thing. Yay! The grey stuff dips down into the center of the cupcake as filling.
I ended up eating the Grey Stuff alone with a spoon instead of as a cupcake, because it really is (wait for it…) DELICIOUS! (Sorry, I can’t not say it!) Plus I still ate the chocolate cake after ;).
The Grey Stuff is Now Available on the Regular Dinner Menu
Speaking of the grey stuff, like I said, it’s only been available as a celebration dessert. Servers got to pick and choose who got to taste it! Now, it’s available to everyone! The Grey Stuff ($3.99) has been added to the dessert menu!
And if you’re lucky enough to have an upcoming advance dining reservation, we want you to know about a recent update to the dinner menu!
Dinner Menu Updates
Two entrees — Braised Pork ($22.99) and Herb-crusted Lamb Rack ($28.49)– have been added to the dinner menu!
I can’t wait to head back and try these goodies.
