The limited-time vessels are a mash-up Tiki-Haunted Mansion creation, and people are losing their minds over them. They’ve already sold out at both Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland (although they are expecting more on the West Coast around Halloween) and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Walt Disney World. And with people waiting in line for hours to get theirs, it’s clear that Disney has struck gold here. [Read more…]

NEW Video! The Best Brownies in Walt Disney World!

Who’s up for some chocolate?!??

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that a choco-craving is bound to strike while you’re in Walt Disney World. And when that happens to me, my favorite way to answer the call is to find a Brownie.

News: Ice Cream Flights Now Available at Ample Hills Creamery on Disney’s Boardwalk

So, let’s say you’re at Ample Hills Creamery on Disney’s Boardwalk.

And let’s suppose you’re taking in all the choices at Disney’s latest ice cream shop… because this is where things get tricky.

How do you decide between flavors like Coffee Toffee Coffee, Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, Malty Salty Pretzel Punch, Baked/Unbaked (filled with house-made chocolate chip cookies and brown butter cookie dough), Sally Sells Seashells (a flavor made exclusively for Disney World), or — my favorite — Peppermint Pattie full of house-made mint chocolate patties? And that’s just naming a few.

It’s not easy, folks.

BUT… there IS a way to ease the dilemma a bit. Ice Cream Flights are now available at Ample Hills Creamery!

Just like the sign says, “Can’t pick just 1 flavor? Get a taste of up to 6 different flavors!” I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting for these to arrive since they opened their doors this Summer! [Read more…]
