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’!
Halloween is HERE! No matter what the actual calendar says , the Disney Parks on both coasts are already celebrating the most epic Halloween ever — especially when measured in Seasonal and Spookerrific eats!
We recently checked out Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World, so today we’re kickin’ it west coast style.
And Disneyland is killin’ it this year! Take a spook… I mean, a LOOK!
Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land
They’ve introduced a super cool Halloween overlay in Cars Land that we can NOT get enough of!
The Halloween-ization of Cars Land is just… well, look for yourself. [Read more…]
We’ve got some classic Disney snacks to share with you from the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery!
Main Street Confectionery
Walking down Main Street, you can smell the sugary goodness coming from the Confectionery before you can see its turn-of-the-century facade. And it’s always worth a trip inside to check it out! They have the cutest Disney treats, including chocolate covered cookies, candy covered apples, and gourmet candies in the shapes of our favorite Disney characters.
Even if I don’t want to eat sweets (*cough*NEVERHAPPENS*cough*), I like to stop in to watch the cast members roll the Rice Krispies and dip apples into that sweet chocolate!
And today we’ve got some favorite Confectionery treats to share with you!!!
We’ll start with the Mickey-shaped treats, because I think they’re the most magical.
Okay, so I’m sitting there, scrolling through my Instagram feed, when I was tagged in pictures of these teeny-tiny, itty-bitty versions of the Mickey and Minnie Candy Apples all dolled up for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration made from polymer clay… small enough to fit on a fingertip!
GET OUTTA TOWN!
The Microbakery features all sorts of fun [Read more…]
Welp, it’s been all Animal Kingdom all the time around here, so why not share one more little bit of news!
Remember a couple weeks ago when we visited the all-new Harambe Market in Animal Kingdom’s Africa for the first time?
There was a sign peeking just over some construction walls across the way, painted with the name “Zuri’s Sweets.” At least, that’s as much as we could read from behind the walls at the time ;).
We’ve now learned that the official name for this new stop is Zuri’s Sweets Shop, and it will be opening its doors as the newest addition to Harambe Market on June 17th!
It seems that Zuri’s Sweets will offer plenty of familiar Disney confections… but with an Animal Kingdom twist…
Altogether we can expect about 80 items including specialty candy apples and popcorn, many of which will be unique to Zuri’s Sweets Shop. Disney shared that the African Spice Popcorn will be flavored with a “hint of cardamom.”
Keep an eye out for some of your favorite Lion King characters to appear on some of the package decorations. And note the paw-shape of the Simba lollipop! I don’t think I’ve ever seen an apple-flavored one before.
The packaging, though, will vary throughout the [Read more…]
