Enchanted Rose Cake Pop.  And Owl. With the Face.

Okay…so Enchanted Rose Cake Pop is the dressed up name that I’m giving this one, because “Character Inspired Cake Pop” is so…. un-Disney-fied. [Read more…]

St. Patrick’s Day Treats in Disney Springs and Disneyland’s Downtown Disney

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and yours!

As you’re searching through the closet for your favorite green garment to don today, you may want to know about some green and Irish-themed EATS you can search for should you find yourself in Orlando’s Disney Springs or Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District on March 17th! (And heads up: a few of these treats will stick around through the rest of the month!)

We’ve already shared some of the treats you will spot around the Disney World parks earlier this week, but now let’s take a look at the Leprechaun-snacks you’ll find in Disney World’s shopping, entertainment and dining district!

Even outside of the highly recommended Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival at Raglan Road (get all the details here!), there is still plenty of Irish-themed grub to go ‘round. And the one we’re most excited about is the Irish Stout Poutine covered in corned beef, braised cabbage, beer cheese and chives at The Daily Poutine!

New DFB Video: Red Rose Taverne Opens in Disneyland

Today, we have a brand new DFB Video coming your way — straight from Disneyland!

Earlier this week, we brought you a first look at Red Rose Taverne, a new pop-up restaurant that you’ll currently find in Disneyland Park.

Red Rose has temporarily taken over Village Haus as part of Disney’s plan to bring a little more Beauty and the Beast to your life! And we are all in. [Read more…]

Review: Red Rose Taverne Beauty and the Beast Restaurant in Disneyland

It’s happened! Our very first visit to Red Rose Taverne is in the books!!

“What’s Red Rose Taverne?” you ask? It’s a pop-up restaurant — Disney style! An homage to all things Beauty and the Beast — just in time for the feature film to hit theaters in less than a month.

And instead of going to the trouble and expense of building Belle/Beast/Gaston their own place, those clever Imagineers decided to borrow Pinocchio’s digs for a bit. Yep — if you’re looking for Red Rose Taverne in Disneyland, head to the spot where Village Haus is in Fantasyland and you’ll find it!

As you can guess, this is a temporary situation. So intrepid Dining in Disneyland expert Heather Sievers didn’t waste any time getting there to try — well, pretty much everything on the menu.

Atmosphere

See? It works. It’s not much of a stretch to think you’d find this medieval-esque building in a small, provincial town in France, mais oui? Clever types will note the sides of the Village Haus Sign peek out from beneath the Red Rose Taverne banner. And note that even though, Miss, this is France, Minute Maid is still the sponsor. ;-)

And now, we get to play a fun little game that I like to call Who Is Paying Attention to the Deets? In this archway at the entrance, you usually find Pinocchio being escorted right into trouble by Gideon and Honest John. A red curtain conveniently transforms the space. [Read more…]

Don’t worry: Village Haus isn’t being permanently evicted (just locked in the East Wing for a while). The Red Rose Taverne overlay is a limited time affair. In the meantime, we are so, so, so excited that the March 17 release of the live-action BATB is prompting so many cool tie-ins (like the gorgeous Belle-inspired cupcake that’s made an appearance on both coasts)! If you need us, we’ll be tying our napkins ’round our necks, cherie.

So when Disney Parks Blog released the menu for Red Rose Taverne, we just had to take a glance. It’s our duty. And we take it very seriously. Mrs. Potts-making-tea-for-her-guests seriously.
