Check Out The LEMON TREATS at Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday Bakery Café!

Jolly Holiday Bakery Café is a mainstay on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Resort. It’s got all the Victorian charm of the iconic park’s main drag, plus it’s full of classic and new treats. It’s the place to get a Raspberry Macaron, creative Cupcakes, and everything in between.

Happy Saturday! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talkin’ ’bout BURGERS!

The burger scene in Disney World, believe it or not, has really changed over the past couple of years…. and for the better, at that. So we thought this would be a great time to share what we think are the best burgers in Disney World with nods to some longtime favorites as well as some limited run get-‘em-while-you-can-right-now burgers. Because, thankfully, you’re never far from a great burger in Disney World these days! [Read more…]

Review: Is the NEW Menu at Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom Worth a Visit?

The Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland at Walt Disney World has had a bit of an identity crisis over the years.

Formerly a seasonal counter service spot, the restaurant is now a seasonal table service location. And while Diamond Horseshoe was once home only to an all-you-care-to-enjoy platter (which began as a temporary offering back in 2016), it was announced that beginning May 16, the menu would also include some a la carte options.

And that’s where Diamond Horseshoe stands today: it’s open seasonally and with limited hours (typically 1PM to 7PM), serving table service eats with both an a la carte and all-you-care-to-enjoy menu. And with the advent of the 2018 Disney Dining Plan’s alcohol-included policy, diners can now enjoy a glass of wine or beer with their meals as well.

But with the cycles of Diamond Horseshoe’s menu life seemingly always up in the air, this Magic Kingdom staple has maintained its Old West style and laid back atmosphere. And after my most recent visit, I might say that’s the best thing Diamond Horseshoe has going for it.

Diamond Horseshoe is a rootin’, tootin’ kind of spot, holding fast to its frontier styling in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. And we love it for that.

You’ve Gotta See This Pineapple Cotton Candy in Disneyland!

Sometimes the creativity of food purveyors really is something special. And at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney, Cotton Candy Creations has got a super fun, sweet option for those late-day sugar cravings: Pineapple Cotton Candy.

But this isn’t your average cotton candy on a paper cone. Because this one is full of fun, fruity details.
