Disney Springs is chock full of new stuff this week — including new eats, new gear, and new construction updates! Let’s see what’s shakin’!
Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, or Any-Excuse-To-Have-Some-Chocolate Day, there will be treats galore for you if you’re spending this week in Walt Disney World or Disneyland!
Walt Disney World
In Magic Kingdom, stop by Main Street Bakery to find the Mickey Cinnamon Roll with a special heart decoration.
And if your idea of romance is inspired by Pecos Bill and Slue-Foot Sue, then mosey over yonder into Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe and order up some hand-dipped white and dark chocolate strawberries.
Happy Monday! And what better way to kick off your week than with another DFB Video? Today we’re checking out 5 Disney World drinks that we think you should put on your list to try in 2018!
From Epcot and Hollywood Studios to Animal Kingdom and beyond the parks in Disney Springs, we enjoyed several fun new drinks in 2017 that we totally think you need to check out on your next Disney World visit! And while plenty invite you to imbibe, we’ve also included our favorite non-alcoholic beverage on the list so everyone’s sure to have something tasty and cool to sip. Cheers to you, my friends!

We’re still newly into 2018! And tradition dictates that we ring in the New Year with some bubbly. While that’s never a bad choice when the clock strike midnight, I’ve got some ideas for ways you can celebrate with a drink in Walt Disney World no matter what time of year your visit falls in 2018!
These are some of the sips we most enjoyed over the past year… and can’t wait to enjoy again in 2018!
Wine Slushies at Amorette’s Patisserie
Did you think Amorette’s Patisserie showcased nothing more than artful cakes and pastries? Then think again. Because this Disney Springs sweet spot is home to the vino that went VIRAL in 2017: Wine Slushies!
Choose from two fruity flavors: Strawberry Shiraz and Mango Moscato (an Apple Cider Riesling even appeared on the menu for the 2017 holiday season).
Over the past few weeks, you have probably gathered that one of our DFB holiday traditions is exploring all the Gingerbread Displays in Disney World Deluxe Resorts like the Beach Club Carousel and the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House. And we’ve already enjoyed some yuletide fun in Disney Springs at the Christmas Tree Trail. But now we’re able to combine a bit of both thanks to the Gingerbread Display at Amorette’s Patisserie!
This new display (seen through the front window to the right of the entrance) captures well known scenes and icons of Disney Springs, like the House of Blues water tower and the Planet Hollywood Observatory.
Hello, Disney food friends! There’s so much happening all the time at Walt Disney World, and this is never more true than at the start of the winter holidays! It seems like there are new decorations and new seasonal eats being added… well, constantly!
So here’s what’s new at Disney Springs this week!
Some fun new decor has been added, including these nutty reindeer. We love the pasta hair bows.
Gingerbread displays at Walt Disney World have become such an exciting part of the holiday celebrations that guests can literally plan an entire day around seeing them all. (We even include some tips on how to do so in our DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Holidays!)
And it is not hard to see why! Gingerbread is done bigger and better at the Disney Resorts, with literally HUNDREDS of pounds of ingredients being shaped and engineered — you might even say “imagineered” — in unbelievable ways that you just have to see with your own eyes! [Read more…]
HOORAY!!! It’s time for all things Apple, Caramel, and Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!!! And while this is true all over the country, it may be even more so in DISNEY WORLD, where you’ll encounter everything from Pumpkin Coffee to Cupcakes and Milkshakes to Gelato and more… everything’s coming up PUMPKIN!
Wanna know where you can get your PUMPKIN ON — and your other favorite fall flavors — in Disney World? Then read on, my Fall-minded Friends…
Just like back home — where everybody knows your name — the Disney World Starbucks locations are once again carrying the World Famous Pumpkin Spice Latte! [Read more…]
Y’all! Free Pastry Alert! Free Pastry Alert! (Note to self: make “Free Pastry Alert” a thing.)
If you’re a fan of Amorette’s Patisserie (or been jonesing to give it a try!), this is a fun way to get not only a great souvenir but also a spectacular pastry! We’re not sure how long this will be in effect, but at present, you can get a free Amorette’s pastry(!) with the purchase of a caricature!
So Amorette’s Patisserie quietly introduced Wine Slushies recently. And the interwebs promptly lost their minds.
Of course, that meant one thing for your intrepid DFB investigator: I had to head to Disney Springs to see what all the fuss was about — and if it was warranted.
For those of you keeping track, the slushies join other grown up slushies that you’ll find throughout Walt Disney World. Some of our favorites are the Grey Goose and Grand Marnier Slushes in Epcot’s France. Morocco has a few of their own options as well. [Read more…]
