DFB Video Review: Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Who’s ready for some ICE CREAM???!!

Here at DFB, we live in a perpetual state of ice cream readiness. And nothing beats a visit to one of our favorite spots — Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom. In fact, we’re heading there today in our latest DFB Video!

Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

While we enjoy all of the variety when it comes to ice cream in Walt Disney World, there are a few treats that we especially crave every time we’re at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. Who can resist a Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich drizzled with toppings!?! And their hand-scooped sundaes are classic.

We just love bringing you along on our DFB food travels as we explore all the culinary magic that Disney has to offer! And if you think that sounds like a good time too, please be sure to subscribe to our new DFB YouTube Channel!

New DFB Video Review: Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop

We are stopping into Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop today for our latest DFB Video!

You’ll find two Disney locations for Ghirardelli — one in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs, and the other in Disneyland’s Disney California Adventure. While we love all of the Ice Cream, Cocoa, Coffee, and Chocolate Goodies you can get in both stores, today we’ll be focusing on the Disneyland location.

Guest Review: Cross-Country Disney Day — Iconic Treats from Six Disney Parks in One Day

Wow!!! Guest author (and an awesome friend who always sends me the best photos of Disney food!) Lori Fries, takes us on a whirlwind, coast-to-coast tour of six parks in one day. Let’s see what food she sampled!

If you are like me, you love BOTH Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. I achieved my top item on my bucket-list and went to all 6 parks — four in Disney World and two in Disneyland — on the same day!

Six Parks, One Day Treats

Six Parks, One Day Treats

Picking one snack in each park brings with it a unique set of challenges. For the first time in modern memory, I didn’t want to go to a park and pick what I felt like eating at the time. Seasonal treats have always held a special place on my Must Do Disney Food List, but I wanted to go with iconic treats.

There is an entirely different set of things I love to eat on both coasts. I could go to Epcot and fill my stomach around World Showcase. My trip was even during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! That is a different challenge.

Would I pick things only served on a stick to make an easy getaway to the next destination? Nope. That would rule out some classics like the Mickey pretzel.

Here is what I did. My first stop was Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
To me, vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s silhouette screams Disney snack at its finest.
You can find them at ice cream carts and restaurants throughout the parks in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Not only can you get them from all the parks but all the resorts as well. I also knew that the carts are opened before the official park opening.

Review: Pure Growth Organic Allergy-Friendly Snacks now at Disney Parks

Snacking with a special diet or allergy can be tricky at Walt Disney World, but Disney has released something that might make life a little easier!

Pure Growth Organic Snacks are, at a minimum, organic and all natural. While these grab-and-go snacks aren’t hearty meals, families can stash them in a backpack and eat on the go or in line. And, as a bonus, they come with Disney characters on the packaging to make them feel like a more magical snack!

News: 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Introduces Two New Booths

We may be busy decking the halls right now, but shortly after the holidays we’ll be dreaming of Spring. And in Walt Disney World, that means one thing — the 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! Mark your calendars for March 1-May 29, 2017 — a full 90 days of flowers, food, and fun!

Ahhh, Epcot in the Spring.

Ahhh, Epcot in the Spring.

In its 24th year, the Flower and Garden Festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. It’s truly a feast for all of the senses as Epcot introduces new topiaries like Belle and Figment to accompany all of the classics we’ve come to love. And in 2017, there’s even more of an emphasis on edible gardens. [Read more…]
