5 (New to Me) Disneyland Discoveries I Couldn’t Wait To Share

Well, I’m going to be honest with you. I’m looking through the thousands of pictures I took over my 6-day trip to Disneyland and I want to write about ALL of it RIGHT NOW!

The Hungry Bear Blueberry Pie is a Thing of Beauty

Since I obviously can’t do that, and I can’t bring all of you over to my living room to look through a slide show (we don’t have enough Doritos), I’ve decided to highlight five of my favorite discoveries here. I know that some of these are already near and dear to you lucky local Disneylanders, but they were new to me on this trip, and I loved ‘em.

Each of these will be showcased in detail in longer review posts coming up over the next few months, but I couldn’t wait to share some of my personal new favorites with you ASAP!

Red Velvet Roulade

Over at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen we found plenty of new favorites. From the beignets to the garlic cheese bread, almost everything we tried was a winner.

But I have to say we were very pleased that we switched our dessert order last minute to this Red Velvet Roulade. Moist, rich red velvet cake stuffed with incredibly creamy, tangy cream cheese frosting. The perfect ending to a great meal.

Plaza Inn Fried Chicken

I know — you’re shocked that I’ve never tried this before! I am, too! What an incredible piece of poultry this is.

A huge portion of golden brown fried chicken is supplemented by [Read more…]

Star Wars Weekends Darth Vader Cupcake and Other Specialty Foods

Darth Vader and R2D2 are where it’s at when it comes to food at this year’s Star Wars Weekends in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

This chocolate peanut butter cupcake has been upgraded with a white chocolate Darth and a couple of dueling chocolate light sabers on top! We found this one at Starring Rolls Cafe.

The taste is still out of this world, and the gooey, fudgey peanut butter chocolate center is well worth the cost of the cupcake!

Top 5 Disney Snacks to Take Home From the Parks

Let’s face it, sometimes it’s just nice to bring a little bit of Disney home with you to help you get over that post-Disney depression! And I know that lots of folks end up with plenty of Disney Dining Plan snack credits left over at the end of a Disney World trip. Or maybe you have friends and family you’d like to bring a treat home for.

Here are my top five favorite snacks to bring home from the parks!

Top Five Disney Snacks to Take Home from the Parks

Caramel Corn from Epcot’s Karamell Küche

This delicious snack is downright heavenly. Ever since Karamell Küche opened in the Fall of 2010, it’s been a must-stop location for me every time I’m in Epcot — even if my only reason for being there is to smell the gorgeous smells coming from those candy kitchens!

Free Caramel Corn for Disney World Annual Passholders

It’s true, it’s true! Disney World annual passholders can get free caramel corn at Karamell Kuche in Epcot’s Germany through December 11th.

This is the size of the caramel corn bag when you get it

The bag is small — about half the size of a regular small bag, but it’s enough to have a nice snack as you walk through World Showcase.

Just heed a few warnings though: [Read more…]

Gluten Free Snacks at Main Street Bakery

Update: Disney is no longer offering Divvies. They are currently offering bakery items from the Enjoy Life and OMG Manufacturers along with Rocky Mountain Popcorn, and Surf Sweets Jelly Beans throughout the Parks and Resorts.

Just came across this display of specialty diet items in the Main Street Bakery today! It’s new to me, so I thought I’d share. For more great info and resources for dining gluten-free in Disney World and Disneyland, check out our Gluten-Free Resources pages!

Main Street Bakery Gluten-Free and Specialty Diet Items
The first thing to catch my eye was the caramel popcorn! It looked deeeeelicious! All of these products seem to be from the same brands — French Meadow Bakery and Divvies. Has anyone sampled these brands? How are they? Any preference?
