News and Review: New Trail Mix Available Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

In a World where cupcakes and Dole Whip reign supreme, it might be a bit of a challenge to muster up excitement over trail mix. Thank goodness Disney knows just how to reel us in: cute packaging and a great recipe. And now at Westward Ho in Frontierland in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, guests can pick up a portable, functional, and simple package of Trail Mix.

Something about the simplicity of this packaging coupled with the Davy Crockett Mickey label calls to us. And what’s inside also totally rocks. Guests can dig into Pretzels, Chocolate Gems (basically M&Ms), Mixed Nuts, Raisins, and House-made Marshmallows. There’s something for everyone, which makes this snack not only easy to tote around all day but also great to share with the whole family. And since there are some high energy components mixed in, it’s just the thing you need for that long Splash Mountain queue. ;)

Old West Cinnamon Rolls Downtown Disney

According to my 12 year old son, I stopped in my tracks “to get the breaking news.” Yes, he was making fun of me; and he did a whole running commentary while I stopped to get the scoop on this new-ish spot in Downtown Disney. After that nonsense, which was actually quite hilarious, he’s lucky that I still shared my cinnamon roll with him!

Atmosphere

Located right next to the Pin Traders store, Old West Cinnamon Rolls has apparently been there for about 6 or so weeks. I obviously don’t cruise Downtown Disney enough to let this place exist for so long without knowing about it. Going to have to change that I guess, because the cinnamon rolls here are amazing.
