News: Specialty French Fries at Beaches and Cream in Disney’s Beach Club Resort

Do we really need another reason to enjoy visiting Beaches & Cream?

Probably not.

After all, it’s home to greats like the No Way Jose, some of the Best Grilled Cheese in Disney World, and the World Famous Kitchen Sink (which now has a CHOCOLATE LOVER’S version in addition to the original).

And just this past spring, this 50s-style diner and ice cream parlor debuted a line of Hard Floats and Shakes for adults.

So, no. We don’t need another reason. But guess what?

They’ve gone and given us one anyway! It’s a little menu dedicated to French Fries… fully loaded. There are three kinds of specialty fries to choose from: Gravy Fries, Cheese and Bacon Fries, and Chili and Cheese Fries. [Read more…]

Magic Kingdom

A recent visit to the Magic Kingdom revealed changes and additions — both big and small — to Counter Service spots all over the park.

We have so much to talk about, but first we’re so excited to report that a Star Wars Dinner Club is really coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios! We saw a brand new artist rendering of the restaurant and it looks ah-mazing!

There’s no name and no details about a menu, but just knowing that it’s coming is exciting!

We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…

WHAT?!??!?!?: New Adult Beverage and Hard Floats Menu at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop

Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re back at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop for TWO reasons.

One: We can never stay away from the home of amazing ice cream creations like the No Way Jose, Frozen Sunshine, Brownie a la Mode, and the always epic Kitchen Sink for too terribly long and…

Two: We just HAD to check out the new ADULT BEVERAGES MENU featuring Hard Floats and Milkshakes!!!

WHA?!?!??!…you’re probably saying? That’s right… if you’re ready to enjoy some ice cream concoctions with an adult twist, it turns out that Beaches & Cream should be your next stop. Like, PRONTO.

My great pal @danielwanderman alerted us to this wonderful development at our favorite old-fashioned ice cream parlor in Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and it is a DOOZY.

The Best Brownies in Walt Disney World

Remember oh those many years ago when I presented you with my Top Five Disney Brownies?

Best Disney World BrowniesWell, times change… as do snacks and desserts in and around Disney World.  And now here we are celebrating a still-new year, and the brownie landscape has changed. While a few of our favorites from Round One continue to grace our list of Best Brownies, some are no longer available. (We miss you, Paw Print Brownie and Brownie Fudge Sundae!)

But fret not… there’s still no shortage of classic brownie goodness in Disney World (and some not-so-classic, as you’ll notice many of these feature a twist on tradition).

Whaddya say we make a NEW Best Brownies list?

That’s right… a new list for a new year! Grab a fork and get ready to dig into some chocolatey brownie deliciousness with me!

Peanut Butter Brownie with Warm Caramel Sauce

OK, this is probably the best thing you will put into your mouth all month. Let me say that I eat a lot — A LOT — of Disney food, and much of it is sweet deliciousness; but this thing took my breath away.

You can find the Peanut Butter Brownie with Warm Caramel Sauce at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. And here’s the kicker…

Is anyone in your vacation party celebrating a birthday?

Then you might want to mark the occasion by tackling the one-and-only KITCHEN SINK at the one-and-only Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at Disney’s Beach Club Resort!

Or should I say the “three-and-only…”? Because you can NOW get your Kitchen Sink in one of three versions: the Original Kitchen Sink, a Neapolitan, or one made just for CHOCOLATE LOVERS’! What?!??!?!?!?!

Grab a spoon and get ready to dig in with us! But first, let’s step inside Beaches and Cream to check out the place that the Kitchen Sink calls “Home SWEET Home.”

Atmosphere

You’ll need to take a walk outside at the Beach Club Resort to find Beaches and Cream nestled next to Stormalong Bay (the practically-a-water-park pool reserved for guests of the Yacht and Beach Club).
