If you keep up with our What’s New in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs posts, you’ve probably noticed that The Ganachery in the shopping, dining, and entertainment district often crafts incredible chocolate pinatas for holidays, special events, and World-wide trends.
And since our expectations are high for Sunshine Seasons — and because we’re always on the lookout for new eats! — we like to check out the pastry case here as often as possible. (Maybe we’re just making excuses to eat more desserts…) On my most recent visit, I discovered the new Turtle Brownie. And let me tell you: this is a hidden gem!
This is one indulgent treat! A layer of dense, chocolatey brownie is topped with serious. caramel. action! The layer of thick, gooey caramel on this thing was, like, half an inch thick!!!
And the whole thing is covered in chocolate frosting, pecans, and chocolate chips.
It’s true — a LOT of brownies in Disney World are dry little squares of waste-of-money. But this one? Don’t pass it by, my friends. DO NOT PASS THIS BY.
Consider bringing a brownie buddy… or just get yourself a bottle of milk, park yourself in a comfy booth, and take your time! This hidden gem is our favorite kind: sweet, delicious, and addictive!
Would you share this beautiful brownie or keep it all for yourself? Tell us in the comments!
When it comes to getting a great steak at Walt Disney World, there’s no shortage of intriguing options, including our current favorite steak on property: the Wagyu Beef at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs.
And when you visit a steakhouse in the World, you enter with certain expectations for mind-blowing excellence. Today we visit Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort. Will it live up to expectations?
Yachtsman Steakhouse has a solid reputation as a place to get a reliable steak with tasty sides (and awesome pull-apart onion bread…). Located in the subtly elegant Yacht Club, with its nostalgic lobby smell and clean, nautical lines, Yachtsman is a convenient out-of-park place to grab a meal, being proximal to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
If you’ve been wondering if the Abominable Snowman’s snow cones from Monsters, Inc., are really lemon (or not!), wait no longer! Because the now Adorable Snowman has opened his counter service windows on Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure Park! (HUGE thanks to @StephRPowers for these awesome photos!)
Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats is one of the first of many highly anticipated openings to happen on the reimagined pier, and we’re excited to bring you the menu and a peek at one of the most amazing items on it!
With the Rose Gold Minnie Ears trend slowly slipping into our rearview (very, very slowly because we still love you, Rose Gold Unicorn Cupcake!), you knew it was only a matter of time before a new color trend emerged to fill the void. And that color, our Disney food loving friends, is Millennial Pink. We showed you the sweetly colored ears on DFB’s Instagram recently (where we gave away a couple pair!), and we still can not get enough of that puffy bow. 😉
The Easter season is in full force at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and for the seventh year running, this deluxe resort’s pastry chefs are absolutely wowing guests with artful Easter eggs covered in all things edible!
It’s challenge time, Disney food friends! And this time it’s all about the Main Mouse: Mickey! You already know that we love pretty much all things Mickey-shaped, so what better excuse to munch on those iconic ears than with a Mickey-Shaped Food Challenge?! Thanks to our DFB youtube channel viewer who suggested this fun challenge!

Gaston’s Tavern has become a nice little getaway in New Fantasyland (seriously, it’s been five years; when can we stop calling it “New”?), with a limited menu and proximity to meet-and-greets with the man himself.
Gaston’s menu is usually pretty minimal. At present you can find a Ham and Cheese Pretzel, a Chocolate Croissant, and a Fruit and Cheese Picnic Platter much better suited to Belle than someone so good at expectorating. And then there’s the Warm Cinnamon Roll, which is soooo satisfying (particularly so when you request extra icing…). We love it so much we even got the recipe!
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’!
