News: Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel Returns to Magic Kingdom

We’re back at the Magic Kingdom for Round Two of the Returning Snacks Series!

Perhaps you were with us when we stopped by Sleepy Hollow Refreshments earlier this week to investigate the return of the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich. (It was something of a disappointment, honestly. Find out why here.)

Well, we had one more item to look into that day…. could the rumors be true? Had the Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel REALLY come back to The Lunching Pad? And, if so, is it still every bit as good as we remember?

Not that it’s so hard to remember. The Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel only split from the scene earlier this year, and unfortunately its savory counterpart, the Jalapeño Cheese Pretzel, disappeared right along with it.

But, lo and behold, on our recent Magic Kingdom jaunt, there it was.

The Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel is back on the menu at The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland (still priced about the same as it was and once again a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan)! [Read more…]

News! Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich Returns to Magic Kingdom. (Just WAY Smaller and WAY More Expensive.)

Okay, I was SUPER PUMPED when I started hearing about the return of a certain favorite sandwich to the Magic Kingdom.

Our roving reporter headed straight to Main Street, U.S.A. to begin a trek to discover the truth behind recent rumors of the return of the treat.

The main objective: Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square to find out if the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich was back on the menu.

And IT IS!! The Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich is once again listed along with the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, and the relatively recent addition of the Sausage and Cheddar-stuffed Pretzel.

The Chicken Waffle Sandwich made its return with… a gigantic price increase (womp, womp).

It’s now $10.29. So, there ya go. But still… it’s BACK! So we had to try it to see if it was the same goodness it always was. As a reminder, here’s the sandwich in its previous form. Big Belgian waffle, big chicken, slaw, and arugula. (Can you sense we’re setting you up for disappointment here?) [Read more…]

New! Queso Blanco at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney’s Magic Kingdom

We have some news at the Magic Kingdom! No, our beloved plastic cheese isn’t back, but there is a new melty, cheesy goodness available at Pecos Bill’s!

If you’re not familiar, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is like a magical Chipotle serving fajitas, burritos, and rice bowls with a pretty extensive toppings bar in Frontierland. We also give it high marks for the delicious mini churros with a side of chocolate sauce!

It’s located right at the corner of Adventureland and Frontierland with a ton of indoor seating, so it’s a great place to relax and enjoy lunch — and maybe dry off after a trip through the Briar Patch at Splash Mountain!

Review: Disney Halloween Cupcake and the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin at Main Street Bakery

Can you believe it’s already been over three years since the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery became the first Starbucks location in Disney World?

At the time of the transition from the original Main Street Bakery, it was a pretty major, high-profile change. These days, though, it’s no longer unusual to spot the signature Starbucks green Siren logo around both Disney World AND Disneyland, and guests have become rather accustomed to getting their favorite Frappucino or Pumpkin Spice Latte on their Disney vacation.

As far as food goes, primarily you’ll find similar (if not the exact same) options that you’ll be familiar with if you tend to frequent Starbucks in your hometown — pastries and treats like the popular Iced Lemon Loaf, or small meals like Breakfast Sandwiches.

But you’ll still find a few unique-to-Disney items in the case at Main Street Bakery. The same is true of the other in-park Starbucks locations: Epcot’s Fountain View, Animal Kingdom’s Creature Comforts, and The Trolley Car Cafe in Hollywood Studios.

Today we’re going to look at a mix of both at the Main Street Bakery — one Starbucks item, and two unique-to-Disney items. In fact, we’ll mix it up even further by making one of those Disney items a seasonal offering. After all, ’tis the season for creepies and crawlies…
