Pecos Bill's Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

If you’re taking on two of Magic Kingdom’s Mountains in Frontierland — Big Thunder and Splash! — at some point you’re going to end up mighty hungry… and that’s why we’re moseying into Frontierland today. We’re showing you every stop where you can grab some vittles! And while you may be well familiar with the ever-popular Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, there are actually several other locations where you can grab some grub that you may not have tried in the past. So join us for a Frontierland Food Tour in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]

The Newest Must-Get Cupcake in Disney World

Well, it’s just one Instagram-able cupcake after the other coming out of Main Street Bakery these days, isn’t it?

I’m about to introduce you to the new Flower Crown Cupcake!!

This trendy cupcake has taken the spot of the Rose Gold Minnie Ears Cupcake in the Main Street Bakery case. Don’t worry, though — if you need a Rose Gold Cupcake to match your Rose Gold Minnie Ears or Rose Gold Spirit Jersey, you can still find one at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons and a few of the Disney resort hotels — at least for the time-being. We saw it safe inside the bakery case in Epcot this very morning!

Anyway, just like the Rose Gold Ears Cupcake, you can also find Minnie Ears in the parks to go with this one for some match-y photo ops :) ! Here are the Flower Crown Minnie Ears

Gaston’s Tavern Now Serving Sandwiches “Roughly the Size of a Barge”

In yet another twist to the menu at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland, Gaston has added some mammoth, meaty sandwiches to the offerings.

You may know that we have long bemoaned the loss of the Pork Shank, which was the Tavern’s signature item when New Fantasyland opened in 2012. Ever since that was removed from the menu, it’s felt like Gaston’s Tavern has lost its footing somewhat in figuring out what to serve (awesome Cinnamon Rollwith extra icing, please! — notwithstanding). Though they did have a decent Tavern Beef Stew for a spell, entree-style items have been largely absent from the menu here.

But for a place with such terrific atmosphere, we wanted more of a reason to linger in the setting in addition to the sweet snacks primarily featured on the menu. Yep, I call the atmosphere “terrific.” Because you know Gaston… he loves his compliments!

What Specialty Drinks are Included on the Disney Dining Plan?

Editor’s Note: We’ll be updating this post regularly as we learn more about how specialty, non-alcoholic drinks are being classified at Walt Disney World. If you’ve had experience with the plan, please comment below so we can add it to the post! Thanks, Disney food friends! 

When the 2018 Disney Dining Plan details were released last June, many guests were excited to discover that alcoholic drinks would be included. For those who like to try adult beverages at Walt Disney World, this was an immediate way to bump up the value of the Disney Dining Plan!

But what about those guests who choose not to drink alcohol or who are under 21 years old (but still required to pay the adult price)? How can they maximize the 2018 Disney Dining Plan by imbibing in “specialty beverages” promised by the new DDP?
