We were so excited to fly at the newly debuted Soarin’ Around the World at Epcot!
But the accompanying news out of Sunshine Seasons next door to Soarin’ is fun as well!
This favorite Counter Service spot is welcoming back its headliner attraction with a couple of special treats to mark the occasion.
We spotted the Soarin’ Orange Cupcake when the attraction reopened in mid-May (it was open for about a month in its classic version before the new film hit the scene). The little chocolate Soarin’ sign has been removed, but it’s still called the Soarin’ Cupcake, and features the flavor that I think we all most associate with the ride from when it was Soarin’ Over California (albeit, just via fragrance in the previous version’s Orange Grove scene): ORANGE!
The flavor profile is simple: a vanilla cupcake topped with buttercream icing, with a small amount of orange-flavored filling inside. My favorite detail might be the sky blue part of the frosting, also appropriate for the attraction, with its sugar crystals adding a bit of crunch to an otherwise basic cupcake.
The white chocolate Soarin’ logo now appears on the newer addition to the bakery case: the Soarin’ Panna Cotta!
Orange is again the featured flavor topping a layer of rich and creamy (and not overly sweet) vanilla bean. A thin bottom layer of cake completes the dessert.
We’re not sure how long these snacks will be around, so grab ‘em while you can. And be sure to say hello again to THIS guy while you’re at it!
Hey, Patrick, ol’ pal… it’s great to have ya back! As always, thanks for SOARIN’ with us here at the DFB!
Are you excited for the return of Soarin’? Please let us know with a comment!
