Challenge Accepted: How One Family Completed the 2018 DFB Cupcake Crawl!

Y’all, when we issued the 2018 Walt Disney World Cupcake Crawl Challenge a couple weeks ago, we knew it had the potential to be a deliciously fun activity for our amazing DFB readers — but we didn’t know just how adorable it could be!

You’ll recall that the challenge included fourteen of our favorite Walt Disney World cupcakes — plus a few bonus items that we just couldn’t help adding. The Rose Gold Cupcake sold at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot has been a particular fan favorite — even with a whole bunch of rose gold treats popping up every. where.

Grocery Delivery Available at Disney Vacation Club Resorts

One of our favorite things about staying in a Disney Vacation Club villa is the inclusion of a kitchen where we can whip up a quick meal any time of the day.

And while the DVC resorts do sell a variety of groceries in the resort’s gift shop, many guests choose to order groceries from off-site stores including Garden Grocer.com or have non-perishable items shipped to the hotel.

But did you know that you can order groceries from the DVC resort hotels and have them delivered to your villa? [Read more…]

Review: Territory Lounge in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

The landscape sure has changed at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

With this summer’s opening of the Disney Vacation Club Copper Creek Villas and Cabins, it was anticipated that more and elevated dining options would be needed at the already popular Resort. Hence the refurbishment of Roaring Fork as well as the addition of Geyser Point Bar & Grill.

And honestly, Geyser Point really is a terrific new spot. But today I’m taking you back to where it all started (in regards to great lounges at Wilderness Lodge): Territory Lounge.  I don’t care how many terrific enhancements they make to the Lodge. This spot will continue to rank among the best lounges in Walt Disney World, in my opinion.

They serve great drinks (with lots of Canadian beer options), but even better than the drinks is the upscale pub grub with old favorites served up in new ways, and less familiar dishes heavily inspired by the Pacific Northwest. [Read more…]
