Warm Apple Butter Cakes

Warm Apple Butter Cakes have it all — Caramelized Apples, moist Butter Cake, and a drizzle of Caramel Glaze spiked with Jack Daniels (!!) to top it all off. And what’s better? Since you make the cakes in individual portions, you don’t have to share. Sweet! [Read more…]

DOLE. WHIP. ALERT!!!!!!!

OK, there’s tons of Dole Whip news this week, y’all! We just told you about Dole Whips expanding their reach into Disney Springs in Walt Disney World. Now you can fuel your craving at Marketplace Snacks while you shop until you drop.

Dole Whip Float -- Up Close

Dole Whip Float Goodness!

I was recently in Disneyland for a super fast visit to check out the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure. But while I was there, I couldn’t pass up the chance to stop by and cover this story first hand. (I was also staying at Disneyland Hotel, so, you know, super easy and whatever. Plus…um…Dole Whips. Like I’d pass that up.) [Read more…]

News: Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug in Disney World and Disneyland

We had an absolute blast at the Behind the Scenes at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto event at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort this week!

And are looking forward to sharing all the details about this new Special Event for the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival in a review here soon.

But there was one thing from the event we simply couldn’t wait to share. We got a glimpse of the Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug that’s on the way to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto!

In case you missed the hype, the Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug has already come to — and gone from — Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland. The mug sold out completely on its very first day (to the tune of two-hour wait times for Disneyland guests). And you can see why… it’s Completely. Freakin’. Incredible.

Guest Review: Breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel

Today, we head to the west coast for a guest review of Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel. Let’s take a tour — courtesy of guest author, Liz Jostes.

GoofysKitchen_16-001

For our family’s first trip to Disneyland, I booked breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen. Since we were staying at the Disneyland Hotel and our flight home wasn’t until the afternoon, it was a perfect and convenient stop on our final morning on property.

Goofy’s Kitchen is located next to the pool area in the Disneyland Hotel, and a short, easy walk from the Downtown Disney District (for those not staying at the Disneyland Hotel).

Atmosphere

As you walk through the doors of Goofy’s Kitchen, you enter into a lobby and wait for your turn to check-in and pay for your meal (gratuity is automatically included). Then you are welcome to meet Goofy while waiting for your table. [Read more…]
