Disneyland’s Pickle Paradise!

In the Land of Matterhorn Macaroons, Seasonal Whoopie Pies, and Gourmet Doughnuts, one must find an appropriate, salty foil. And that, my friends, is the proud duty of the Disneyland Pickle.

Many guests have applauded these individually-packaged cucumber pickles as a low-calorie option. Luckily, they’re also super tasty and crave-worthy whether you’re counting calories or not. The punch of the brine and juice along with the chill factor and the satisfying crunch make a much more memorable snacking option than you might originally think, which is why they have been around Disneyland for… EVER.

News: Go-Kart Sundae from Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats on the Disney Dream!

If the only thing better than a sundae is a sundae in a cool vessel (think: Kitchen Sink, Mickey’s Pants), then the only thing better than a sundae in a cool vessel is a sundae in a cool vessel on a Disney Cruise!

The Disney Dream, which went into ‘dry dock’ for some upgrades and alterations in 2015, is the (floating) place to go for Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats. And we don’t know about you, but anywhere with the words “sweets” and “treats” in the name is basically our favorite place.

Smothered in powdered sugar, these hot-from-the-fryer, melt-in-your-mouth treats are pretty amazing all by themselves. But at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, you can also score them with Dipping Sauces. Choose from Caramel, Raspberry, or Chicory Coffee Ganache. Or don’t choose. Because ALL THE SAUCES.

News and Review: Rainbow and World of Color Goofy’s Glaciers!

What’s more refreshing and cooling than a slushy on a crazy hot Florida or southern California day? Uh, nothing. The answer is nothing.

Which is why we love Goofy’s Glaciers. These sweet and tart slushies come in several Goofy-worthy flavors like strawberry, blue raspberry, passion mango, and lemonade. And with flavors like these, it’s only natural that  a good Disney food fan would combine them into something even awesome-r.

Enter our DiningInDisney pal Heather Sievers who, as always, has this plan on lock. In fact, she gave this slushie combo a swirl back in May!

Seven Things To Do BEFORE the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

You’re going to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival! Hooray!

Epcot Food and Wine Festival Tips

Ok. Now what?

In 2017, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival will take place August 31 through November 13. That’s 75 days of discovering new dishes, enjoying interesting wines, and learning about exciting cocktails and craft beers.

But unless you’re independently wealthy, you probably won’t be enjoying the entire two and a half month stretch.

Luckily, we know a thing or two about planning a GREAT Epcot Food and Wine Festival trip. We’ve even compiled our best tips in our DFB Guide to the Walt Disney World Food and Wine Festival, available right now for pre-order.

To get you started on everything from choosing your dates, to what to pack, and how you pay for it all, let’s check out our best tips for Preparing for the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, From Start to Finish.

1) Schedule Your Dates

It may seem basic, but get the calendar out and decide when you’d like to visit.

But really, it’s not so basic, right? There are all kinds of things to consider: When are crowds the largest? What’s the weather like? And OMG is Hanson going to be there this year??? (Spoiler Alert: Yep. They are.)

OMG! Hanson! (©Hanson)

Unfortunately, with respect to schedules, if you have to plan in advance, you’re going to have to do so with some unknowns. Disney always puts out the final schedule of events, for everything from Special Events to Demonstrations and Seminars, pretty much at the last minute. Even Eat to the Beat is coming later and later (although we do have that full lineup — see it here!)

Beverage Seminar

Our suggestion? Plan as much as you can based upon weather, crowds, and a general idea of when Special Events have taken place historically. For a look back at all of the details of previous Festivals, check out our Disney Food and Wine Festivals Page. [Read more…]

New!: Fruits of Mo’ara Fruit Bar in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora — The World of AVATAR

By now we’ve all seen images (or been in the thick!) of the massive crowds at Pandora — The World of AVATAR in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Pandora -- The World of AVATAR

Pandora — The World of AVATAR

We’ve braved those crowds to give you the skinny on eats at Satu’li Canteen (including breakfast!) and the drinks at Pongu Pongu. Oh, and let’s not forget the fun pre-packaged snacks exclusive to Pandora! (VEIN POD!!!!)

Blueberry Almond Pandora Popcorn

But as it turns out, folks have still gotta figure out a way to beat the crazy heat even in picturesque Pandora. So today we’re checking out what is thus far the only bottled drink and ice cream cart in the World’s newest land.

Just like everything else in Pandora, the cart is themed its new home. As opposed to your typical Ice Cream Novelties Cart, you’re instead visiting ACE Mobile Treats (the “ACE,” of course, referring to Alpha Centauri Expeditions, the interplanetary travel company that helps humans like us explore Pandora today).

Beverage offerings include standard bottled hydration options you’ll find elsewhere: bottles of Dasani, smartwater, and Powerade, along with Zico Coconut Water (here in Watermelon Raspberry) and vitaminwater (Dragonfruit flavored!). [Read more…]
