Walt Disney World is regularly stepping up its food game, and that includes quick service (a/k/a fast food) in its parks and resorts. In fact, some quick service dining is so good, it rivals some of the better table service restaurants in the parks and resorts!
We brought you to the first day of Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays LIVE here on DFB, and today, we’ve got even more details about one of the Festival’s new experiences: the Cookie Stroll!
Storybook Treats at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is the place to go for ice cream in Fantasyland. Located adjacent to Friar’s Nook — where you can currently find Loaded Tots! — Storybook Treats serves up hot fudge sundaes, strawberry sundaes, and floats to guests looking for cool snack.
We’d like to welcome guest author Sarah Gurung today!! She’s sharing her dining experiences at World Premiere Food Court during a Walt Disney World family vacation. Savories and sweets, read on!
World Premiere Food Court
Hello, Disney food lovers! My family of three (with one on the way) returned from a magical trip to the World, and it is my pleasure to bring you a review of All-Star Movies’ food court, thematically called the World Premiere Food Court.
Our party of three included my husband (decidedly not picky), my five-year-old (decidedly five-years-old), and myself (decidedly hungry all the time); and we managed to eat at the resort more times than I anticipated. Typically, we ate dinner here after a long day at the parks, famished and exhausted.
We were on a modified quick service dining plan, which allotted us one meal per person per night. Being moderately frugal, we decided to stretch this plan as far as we could by sharing meals. We often substituted a drink and/or a dessert in order to supplement with additional sides, and this was never a problem for the cast members at check-out. They all seemed well-versed in the Plan and good-naturedly accommodated these substitutions.
Ahoy there, Mateys! Get your sea legs firmly in place, because today we’re sailing on the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage in Disney World!
The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage is available on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights, casting off from the Contemporary Resort. When the holiday season arrives, the cruise will sail every night from November 20, 2011 – January 1, 2012.
Currently, the fare for guests 10 and over is $53.99, and $30.99 for the 3-9 year olds with pre-payment required. To book, call 407-WDW-PLAY (407-939-7529) up to 180 days in advance.
Upon arrival at the Contemporary Resort, you’ll find the cruise meeting location on the Daily Events Board in the lobby. We knew we had found the right location when we bumped into this scraggly lookin’ fella. Clearly he has not yet discovered the Parmesan mashed potatoes at Chef Mickey’s!
While the room was filled with entertainment (music, characters, pirates), the pirate decor [Read more…]
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.
WDW strives to accommodate guests with special diets. While dining at table service restaurants can be extremely enjoyable even for diners with dietary concerns, finding snacks can be more time-consuming. Don’t spend time on your vacation looking for safe treats, read our Allergies and Intolerances information before your trip. You’ll discover counter-service locations that cater to special diets and places to get your Divvies such as the Main Street Bakery!
Products such as Divvies snacks (no eggs, no nuts, no dairy) are available throughout the resort. Gluten-free products are also sold in Walt Disney World. Vegans can find yummy snacks too. The popcorn in the parks uses an animal-free butter flavoring!
When time permits, venture over to Downtown Disney to visit BabyCakes NYC for inspired sweet treats!
Divvies cookies are sold for $2.49 per package. Caramel Popcorn ($4.29) makes for a great “grab ‘n go” snack. Other items include Jelly Beans for $3.99 and a Fudge Brownie at $3.39. These products aren’t cheap but they’ll satisfy your craving while adhering to your dietary concerns.

To quote one of my favorite monsters… “Coooooooooooookiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”
So, when I showed you the Disneyland treat-of-the-month — the Peanut Butter Chocolate-Dipped Mickey Cookie — my mouth was pretty much watering as I wrote the post.
You can bet that when I got to Disney World a few weeks later, I bought their treat-of-the-month — a Chocolate Chip Toffee Chocolate-Dipped Mickey Cookie!
Now, I have no idea if this is still available, but just in case it is, I had to show you. Look at how HUGE this thing is!!! See that little knife right there? That’s for scale purposes only… [Read more…]
