What’s New Around Walt Disney World: February 8, 2014!

Our latest update is (almost) all about sweet treats that have found their way into the World! Read on to find out what new goodies we’ve spied recently…

New Ice Cream Flavor in Morocco

Recently we featured the Chef-Created Ice Cream found at the Juice Bar connected to Spice Road Table in Epcot’s gorgeous Morocco Pavilion.

The chefs are already at it again, introducing another new flavor: Orange Honey Walnut has hit the scene.

New Cupcake at BoardWalk Bakery at BoardWalk Inn

A great new seasonal cupcake appeared at BoardWalk Bakery: Dulce de Leche! This one differs from the Dulce de Leche cupcake that was featured in years past at Contempo Café: BoardWalk Bakery’s version features a whipped cream topping sprinkled with crushed pralines (though it’s similar in that there is caramel inside).

New Cupcake at Roaring Fork in Wilderness Lodge

And take a look at this bright red beauty over at Roaring Fork in Wilderness Lodge: the Strawberry Lemonade cupcake (priced at $4.19, and good for a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan). Perfect for February and all things Valentine!

Valentine’s Day Cupcakes at Disney Parks Bakeries and Candy Shops

Speaking of Valentine’s cupcakes, a few have also arrived at Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery in honor of the celebration: guests have their choice of Chocolate or Red Velvet.

Mickey and Minnie Valentine’s Day Apples are Back

I also loved seeing these Mickey and Minnie Valentine’s Day candy apples!

Mickey Groom and Minnie Bride Candy Apples -- fancy!

They can be found at Big Top Treats in Storybook Circus as well. You may notice the different glitter detailing the bottom of the “Bride” apple at the Big Top :) .

Minestrone Soup at Prince Eric’s in Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom, of course, has plenty of savory goodies, too… I spotted a sign for Minestrone Soup over at Prince Eric’s Village Market in New Fantasyland. It’s worth noting that it was a pretty cold day (by Florida standards, anyway ;) ), so I don’t necessarily think this is something we’ll see every day.

Still, it’s always fun to take a stroll around this area, especially now that you can really see the construction coming together for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!

    Argh… I wish they would call the place “Spice Road Treats” instead of “Juice Bar”. Love the ice cream, not crazy about the name. Semi-related memory trigger, from up until 1983-ish (DL) or 1993 (MK) in either park’s Fantasyland(s), you could get a frozen grape juice bar or a frosty cup of Welch’s purple, red, or white grape juice with crushed ice. Now those, were juice bars that served… well… juice.

    The Moroccan ice cream sounds so delicious – I can’t wait to try it! I agree about the Juice Bar though – I was hoping for some actual juice.

    I’m at WDW right now!! Even tho it’s rainy and cold..any day at Disney is the greatest. We ate
    the cake pops and caramel apples at the Big Top…..WONDERFUL!!!! Watching the Disney bakery masters working at their craft is a treat on its own! Headed home tomorrow, but already
    planning our next trip!!

    Regardless of how nice the chef-created ice creams are, I’m still really disappointed Disney didn’t try something interesting with the “juice bar.” Juicing is such a hot trend right now, and a cup of freshly made juice would be perfect for the Florida climate. Not to mention it’d be a great healthy option.

    Instead we get soda, coffee, and alcohol.

    Autumn — the first time I visited, I almost missed it, and I was actively looking for it :)! It was partially hidden for a while because there were walls directly beside it for the Mine Train coaster construction, but now that some of those are coming down it’s a lot easier to see. Enjoy!

    I wish Disneyland & WDW would bring back the Fantasia ice cream. That was one of my favorite childhood memories. Getting Fantasia ice cream in a waffle cone & strolling down Main Street. I so wanted to share that with my son. But they got rid of it before we made it back with him.

    I have to catch up on my blog posts! I love the cupcakes so thanks for the updates and I’m so excited about the Mine Train ride; it’s always good to see updates on that, thanks.
