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.
1. Rose Gold Minnie Ears Cupcake, Sunshine Seasons, Epcot
If you’ve been keeping up with the DFB, or if you’ve been anywhere near Disney World recently, then you are well aware that Rose Gold is taking over the entire place. Like most things around here, “it was all started by a mouse.” Minnie Mouse, in this case!
Always one to be on top of the trends, her Rose Gold Minnie Ears have been the hottest item that can’t even be found in the merchandise shops anymore due to their immense popularity!
And now, treats galore in the Instagram-worthy hue are likewise springing up all over! Let’s take a ‘round the World tour so you can find your own Rose Gold Cupcake… or Rose Gold Margarita (?!?) in Disney World. Yep, read on…
Rose Gold Cupcakes in the Parks
We’ve been checking out ALL THE GINGERBREAD Displays in Disney World from the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House to the Beach Club’s Gingerbread Carousel. Today, we’re at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, and we arrived not knowing exactly what to expect.
You see, the BoardWalk’s Gingerbread Display has varied over the years. You may recall the Sweet Shoppe theme or the days-of-yore Gazebo, or even the year that Stitch took over. Last year, the BoardWalk gave the Resort’s Pastry Chefs the opportunity to create several individual gingerbread houses themed to their choosing.
But for 2017, the whole team is back in action together, and they’ve created a brand new display themed after something very near and dear to our hearts… the BoardWalk’s restaurants!
If you follow DFB on social media (I pretty much live on Instagram, and we’ve got a great group of Facebook and twitter friends, too!), you may already recognize this ab-so-lute-ly gorgeous vision I’m about to show you.
And this time, the Raspberry Rose Cupcake is ready for its closeup with a full review!
This seasonal beauty comes to us on behalf of the BoardWalk Bakery. You’ll typically find three cupcakes up for grabs inside what happens to be one of my favorite bakery cases in all of Disney World. Two of those cupcakes are the classics that tend to stick around (even though they’ve had makeovers of their own over the years): the Mickey Oreo Cupcake and the Strawberry Cupcake.
That third cupcake, though, changes up with some frequency, so I’m always sure to check out the seasonal selection, and I’m sure you can tell why this one caught my eye immediately.
It’s as pretty as a rose because… well, it’s a rose! But is has this advantage over the original: it’s a rose that’s also a cupcake.
Whew! It sure has been a news-y few weeks for Disney World! From the debut of the long-awaited Rivers of Light show in Animal Kingdom, to the announcement of a brand new fireworks spectacular on the way to Magic Kingdom, to the return of another annual Festival at Epcot: the 2017 Flower and Garden Festival.
But it sure doesn’t stop there, because we’ve got even more news to explore… by checking out WHAT’S NEW around Walt Disney World! [Read more…]
Hello, friends! Well, we’d be remiss if we didn’t start out this post by wishing THIS GUY a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Mickey Mouse was presented to the world with the premiere of the animated short “Steamboat Willie” on November 18, 1928. And our favorite Mouse will be joining us all around the World today for our November edition of What’s New!
All Around the World
The Holiday Season is upon us! [Read more…]
Whew! What a week it’s been for food news from Walt Disney World! We learned about the opening date for PizzeRizzo, changes to lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern, the (almost) full list of narrators for the 2016 Candlelight Processional, AND expanded options for food booths coming to Epcot’s Holidays Around the World…. to name just a few!
And would you believe it doesn’t end there? We thought we’d pop in with a quick update with EVEN MORE news from around the World. Starting with… [Read more…]
We know, we know… Back-to-School time is fast approaching (and in some spots, it’s already arrived!). But the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer aren’t quite over just yet, so we’ve still got some summer celebrating to do!
And, hey, the coming of Fall isn’t so bad, anyway. Not when we’ve got our very favorite autumnal event coming to the first stop on our tour in a matter of weeks. That’s why we’re kicking things off at Epcot to see What’s New!
Food & Wine Festival Coming Soon!
The 2016 Epcot Food & Wine Festival will be here before we know it! Sure signs of its return are starting to appear around the park…
… as in, like, literal signs . Even the Miniature Train display in the Germany Pavilion has received its annual decorations!
