There’s a new pineapple snack in town, and you’re going to want to sit down for this. It’s Pineapple. Upside Down. Cake. With. DOLE WHIP!
Editor’s Note: The menu screenshot below appeared on the Disney World website briefly on October 6th, but the current menu has changed back to the Macaroni and Cheese dishes. We’ll be keeping an eye out to see if and when the change becomes official!
It seems as though BIG menu changes are on the way to the little Friar’s Nook in Magic Kingdom!
Previously home to over-the-top Macaroni and Cheese dishes, the Friar may be trading Loaded Mac for Loaded TOTS!
Happy Oktoberfest from Central Florida! There are TWO ways you can celebrate Oktoberfest in Disney Springs for a limited time. For instance…
Oktoberfest Poutine, anyone? At The Daily Poutine, you can find those thick cut fries topped with crumbled bratwurst, cheese curds, and a stout beer gravy.
And just down the way (still in the Marketplace) at B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. you can find a straight up Bratwurst and Spaetzel.
HOW CUTE is the new Starbucks Mickey Tumbler for Disney’s Animal Kingdom?!?
You’ll find it at Creature Comforts, the Animal Kingdom Starbucks location. And much like when you’re in the park itself, the more you look, the more you see… from Mickey’s animal print ears and legs to the Tree of Life tucked on the bottom of Mickey’s shoe, to attraction logos and more, Mickey is ALL Animal Kingdom from head to toe!
Picture it: A plate full of Baked Macaroni and Cheese.
Flame Tree Barbecue
On top of that, a pile of Flame Tree Barbecue’s Pulled Pork.
On top of THAT, another Flame Tree favorite: Onion Rings!
And on the side? Just a bit of coleslaw to provide a hint of cooling tang to the entire dish.
Well, guess what? You don’t have to simply imagine it — because the fine folks at Animal Kingdom’s Flame Tree Barbecue have made it a reality!
You’ll see it on the updated menu, where the Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork Topped with Onion Rings and Coleslaw has replaced the Smoked Turkey Sandwich.
You’ll notice a difference in presentation, though, from the menu.
Okay, so I may not know how to golf, but I know something cute when I see it…
… and that’s how I came across the Mickey Refreshment Golf Cart at Lake Buena Vista Golf Course!
The golf course is located at Saratoga Springs Resort, and I was upstairs on the patio of the Turf Club when I looked down and this bright red and blue cart caught my eye — as did Golfer Mickey! — so I went down to check it out. [Read more…]
I’m not sure how to emphasize how good the Plaza Inn‘s Fried Chicken is. Let me just say this: it is the best fried chicken I have ever eaten. (Yes, that includes Homecomin’, which is incredibly tasty as well.)
Fact: Plaza Inn’s Fried Chicken — literally — is the best.
Plaza Inn is located on Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A., and its exterior is quintessentially Disney. So many great details on the awning and posts, not to mention the swirls of wrought iron on the sign. [Read more…]
You know which Resort Counter Service location has a couple of fun options for breakfast?
Good’s Food to Go
Good’s Food to Go at Old Key West Resort!
Now, you may be thinking, “Great! Wait…. where?” And that’s fair enough. Because Good’s Food to Go isn’t exactly what you might call a high profile location. While Olivia’s Cafe — Old Key West’s Table Service restaurant — has earned its great reputation (though it still flies under the radar due to its non-park-centric location), Good’s Food to Go is hardly known at all.
Which makes sense. You’ll soon see that it’s not “destination dining,” per se.
Even though its surroundings reflect the fun and tropical Keys vibe of the Resort (and it’s tucked right next to what is possibly the cutest little bar in all of Disney World, the Gurgling Suitcase)… [Read more…]
Coconut lovers, have I got a treat for you today!
Gasparilla Island Grill
And it’s located someplace rather unexpected: Gasparilla Island Grill in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.
You see, Gasparilla Island Grill has never been a spot we’ve visited specifically to seek out dessert. Like, EVER. Gasparilla has always carried a couple of cupcakes in the refrigerated section, like the Pina Colada Cupcake and the German Chocolate Cupcake. But when you consider the fact that some really incredible dessert options are just a quick ride away via the Resort Monorail (like the Peanut Butter Pie at Contempo Cafe, or Dole Whips at Pineapple Lanai), Gasparilla’s offerings usually seemed pretty ho-hum in comparison.
However, when the counter service spot opened up again after its most recent refurbishment (no major changes to the guest area, other than the addition of Coke Freestyle machines), the dessert options had changed. And they’d been enhanced.
No longer relegated to a small row or two in the refrigerator, desserts now entirely take up a full bakery case next to the more traditional breakfast pastry selections. The cute-as-a-button Minnie Mouse Cupcake stands out right away. [Read more…]
From super casual quick eats at spots like ABC Commissary and Rosie’s All-American Cafe to the park’s Signature Restaurant, The Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood Studios has plenty of long-time staples alongside the park’s newest lounge. So how will you know which spots should top the list for YOUR Studios visit? I guess you’ll have to watch our latest DFB Video to find out! [Read more…]
