It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, and we’re celebrating it in a wicked way at Disney World’s Contemporary Resort… join us for Villaintine’s Day!!
Why the celebration? Because, as Disney reminds us, “without Disney Villains, there would be no Disney heroes!” So this dastardly day is being honored with specialty desserts at the Contempo Café and drinks at the Outer Rim lounge for TODAY ONLY.
So, let’s head to the Contemporary Resort’s 4th floor to see what evil is brewing, starting in Contempo Cafe’s confectionery case…
Lots of Contempo Café classics have received makeovers for the occasion, but you’ll also notice lots of new cupcakes in the mix, too. Best of all, if you have a favorite Villain, odds are good you may spot a snack representing them here.
We’ll check them all out in the case before showing you which ones we chose, beginning with Scar Peanut Butter Pie!
Next up? Maleficent Flourless Cake and the Dr. Facilier Cookie Sandwich.
Captain Hook Cake is the not-so-friendly neighbor to the Cruella de Vil Cupcake.
The Gaston Cupcake is joining the party, too!
Not to be outdone is the Ursula Cake.
But the Evil Queen Fruit Tart believe she’s the fairest one of all…
“Hey, how ya’ doin’?” from the Hades Cupcake!
And last, but not least, is the Lotso Bear Strawberry Scented Brownie!
How on earth do you choose?
By getting more than one, that’s how!
The Contemporary Cafe’s Confetti Cake is what’s hiding underneath its Ursula costume for the day with the Ursula Cake!
This is always a tasty and fun confetti cake, so it’s great one its own, but the shimmer from the icing is also strikingly pretty, to boot.
Ursula, you’re a keeper!
So, where does the scent come from in the Lotso Bear Strawberry Scented Brownie?
It’s from the candy pearls on top, which offered the only hint of strawberry scent and flavor. Despite the bright Lotso-pink color of the frosting, it is a basic vanilla flavor.
And the entire thing is every bit as HUGE as it appears in the picture. This rich, filling, dense, brownie is massive, so consider bringing along your favorite toy to share it with!
The Maleficent Flourless Cake is iced in an eye-catching purple, of course, complete with Maleficent’s signature horns.
While it’s quite good with the same fudge-like texture that you’d expect from a flourless cake, there’s nothing unusual about it outside of the design.
The Cruella de Vil Cupcake steals a bit of the fashion show, though… and would she have it any other way? Look at this thing!
The Cupcake is wrapped in a fondant “coat,” dotted with Dalmatian spots, of course!
It’s an amazing visual touch, so we’ll happily keep it even though, as with pretty much all fondants, it’s not great from a flavor perspective.
The flavor variation comes from the cookies and cream filling in the basic yellow cake.
There’s not a ton of it, to be honest, but it’s still a good, solid cupcake and it looks terrific!
But wait, Villains fans, there’s more! If you stop by the Outer Rim lounge right next to Contempo Café, you’ll see a sign with a selection of specialty Villaintine’s Inspired Cocktails on the table.
The bartender has a display of the four drinks.
These include The Antagonist (inspired by Jafar), The Dark Forest (inspired by Maleficent), The Poison Apple (inspired by the Wicked Queen), and the Coupe de Ville (inspired by Cruella)! Just read the ingredients on the table sign to find what strikes your fancy!
We went with The Antagonist! Inspired by Jafar from Aladdin, this cocktail mixes Tanqeray Gin with Monin pomegranate syrup and is garnished with gummy worms.
That creepy rim? Fret not… it’s just chocolate! And your glowtini cube is set to red for the final touch!
The gin and pomegranate is a basic, but always good, combo. And the bartenders at Outer Rim pour a generous drink, from our experience. The chocolate rim adds just a touch of distinct flavor to the beverage, and for sure give it a cool, villainous look!
No matter whether you’re visiting the Contemporary Resort for Villaintine’s or Valentine’s or any other time, you’ll want to know about all the dining options beforehand. So take a Food Tour with us on our DFB YouTube Video!
