But not just any funnel cakes…we’re talking Disney Funnel Cakes!!
Heya Guys! Have WE got a treat for YOU today! But first off, a little intro is in order. We’d like you to welcome Adam, who makes his debut on our latest DFB Video today!
And this one takes us inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a closer look at the food at Backlot Express!
Does it surprise you to know that Backlot Express is one of our favorite spots to eat at DHS? The reasons are pretty simple. First, there’s some incredible themeing. Seriously, if you ever lose me at Studios, chances are good that I’m wandering around in here. [Read more…]
Hollywood Studios is kind of the forgotten park right now in Disney World. So much construction. So many shuttered restaurants. So is it still even worth it to go? YEP! And when you DO go, we’ve got the list of what you need to be eating! Check out today’s DFB Video for the things you MUST eat when you visit Hollywood Studios!
There’s a lot to eat in the studios still, but some of it is just not worth the cost or the calories. Stick with our tips and you can rest assured you’ll be eating the best of the best.
Every once in a while you’ve gotta go back to the classics.
Let’s head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to Oasis Canteen!
You’ll find this unassuming little kiosk in the back of Studios, near the Indiana Jones attraction.
Ice cream treats are the norm for this place. But at least once in the past, they took us by surprise when they offered a selection of savory options. That was mostly during a busy season when more eats were needed around the park, and since then ice cream and classic treats have returned.
In fact, the menu has changed very little from long ago visits — except that the prices have gone up. There are also a couple of grown up floats to try here — both root beer and dreamsicle versions — that include Stoli Vanilla vodka.
With all the changes taking place at DHS, who knows what will come next to Oasis? So let’s enjoy a favorite classic while we can! It’s funnel cake time. [Read more…]
Yep! We’re talking Sith and Jedi Lightsaber…Churros! For realz.
We spied them at the Churro Cart in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland, and they’ll be there throughout the month of May.
But we also spotted them in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May the Fourth. While we hear they’ll be back, they aren’t there as of press time, unfortunately. But..a new hope! For churros! (What?!) [Read more…]
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opened last weekend and the cutest member of the Guardians has to be Baby Groot! We just love the little guy, so we were super excited when we spotted a couple of Baby Groot items at Disney’s Hollywood Studios today!
How cute is this Baby Groot Sipper? You’ll find the cup at the popcorn carts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He can be yours – filled with your favorite fountain beverage – for just $12.75.
We are back with some of our very best kept Disney Dining Secrets. And we want to share them with you!
Planning what you’re going to eat and drink at Walt Disney World is no small undertaking. To begin, there are tons of choices. But what if you could make your meal a real multitasker? Say, you could enjoy some terrific eats, and get that shiny new autograph book filled with the names of all of your Disney favorites? Yep, we’re talking Character Meals.
You may think that the character meal experience isn’t for you. But we invite you to take a closer look at these special meals and see for yourself if a Character meal could be right for you.
And if you like what you see here, be sure to check out the brand new, just released 2017 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, Second Edition, where we talk character meals and LOTS more! And for a limited time, you can get it for 20% off with code SAVE2017 at checkout! Here we go!
Are Character Meals One-Size-Fits-All? Why Should I Book One?
You may think that if you’re an adult, single, or have older kids, there’s really no reason to engage in that Disney Rite of Passage, the Character Meal. But we think there’s a place for everyone at the character table, and here’s why.
It’s Cool In There, People. I’m not talking, like, rad. I mean literally, it’s cool. Like, air-conditioned. And in our opinion, waiting for characters with the a/c cranked up while noshing on delicious food WAY beats standing out in the hot sun any day. [Read more…]
Disney’s Hollywood Studios has an all-new musical show debuting on May 26 – The Music of Pixar Live!

Today Disney announced two new Music of Pixar Live Dining Packages!
The Music of Pixar Live Dining Packages allow guests to make a dining package reservation at a select restaurant and the package includes reserved seating for the show. [Read more…]
Editor’s Note: The 2017 Disney World Free Dining Offer was originally released in April 2017. Because of the popularity of the Free Dining promotion, the offer sells out very quickly.
IT’S ON. The Walt Disney World’s Free Dining Offer is officially coming back and will be offered to guests for select dates in late August, September, November, and December 2017 (NOTE: There are no October dates this year, but if your check-in date is in late September, you can obviously take your stay into October).
Disney World Free Dining 2017 Travel Dates
August 21* – September 30, 2017
November 14 – November 20, 2017
November 25 – November 27, 2017
December 8 – December 23, 2017
You must book by July 7th to get the offer.
*Disney Visa Cardholders may book dates starting August 13th. We’ll be updating the post throughout the day with details as we get them.
(Please note that the offer excludes: campsites, 3-bedroom villas, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – Little Mermaid Standard Rooms, and Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows as per Disney World’s website. Some sources are reporting more exclusions. Your mileage may vary. )
If you stay at a Value or Moderate Resort, you’ll receive the Quick Service Dining plan for FREE. (Note that you can upgrade to the standard or deluxe dining plans by paying the difference in cost per night.) Note that the Caribbean Beach Resort is undergoing massive refurbishment this year. It’s still available to book for the offer, but we just wanted to give you the heads’ up.
You must book a minimum stay of 3 nights/maximum stay of 14 nights at a Disney-owned resort. (This is based on our calculations making trial reservations, though Disney does not specify a minimum stay this year.) You also need to purchase AT LEAST a 2-day Magic Your Way Disney World ticket with a Park Hopper AND/OR the Park Hopper Plus Option.
Will Free Dining Save You Money?
Since Disney World’s Free Dining offer generally can’t be combined with other discounts, it’s often difficult to determine whether or not your family will save more money with a Disney World hotel room discount or with the free dining offer.
We break down and compare the costs and options for several Disney World discounts, including the Free Dining offer, in our fully updated DFB Guide to Walt Disney World® Dining 2017 Second Edition e-Book to help you save the most money possible.
Along with over 650 pages of great Disney World dining advice, full color photos, and details, this book is a great deal.
Get your DFB Guide to WDW Dining here, and speaking of saving money — use code “SAVE2017” to get 20% off today! With a full, money-back guarantee, there’s nothing to lose!
