Bring Disney Home for the Holidays!

We like to bring the magic of Disney home all year long, and when the Holidays roll around, the magic is multiplied! Luckily, our friends at Mickey Fix have got our backs with TONS of great ideas to enjoy Disney at home during this festive time.

So, you’re a Disney super-fan, and you want to share that love with all of your family and friends. We get you. It’s time to throw the best Disney Christmas party ever! First, you’ll need some Santa Mickey Lights.

Gingerbread Builders are at work!

The pastry chefs (and in this case, they can also be considered construction workers and engineers, I’d say!) have been hard at work in the lobby, constructing a beautiful Craftsman-inspired replica of the hotel itself once again for 2017, with perfect shaping and details! [Read more…]

The 2017 Gingerbread Carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort

I love all of the larger-than-life Gingerbread Displays around Disney World during the Holiday Season. You know this. But I must confess… I’ve got a favorite. It’s just not the Holidays until I see (and sniff!) the Gingerbread Carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort!

That’s why it’s especially good news that it is now up and spinning for guests visiting the Beach Club!

One of the reasons I love the Gingerbread Carousel so much is that it’s new every year. The theme last year, for instance, was the Fab Five, with horses for Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy. (As man’s and mouse’s best friend, Pluto got his own display placed just outside of the Carousel). And for 2017, the Carousel is themed with Lilo and Stitch! [Read more…]

Review: New Seasonal Candy Cane Kah-lada at Anaheim Produce in Hollywood Studios

We’ve spotted yet another holiday seasonal item in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Now, we’ve long-hailed Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner as a great place to find themed drinks thanks to their rotating assortment of Seasonal Shakes (currently you’ll find a Blue Milk Shake, in honor of all the new Star Wars eats and activities that have recently come to the Studios). But that’s not the only place with a few seasonal sips up its sleeve…

Today’s selection is coming at you from Anaheim Produce. Did you know about the Seasonal Coladas you can find here??

You know we at the DFB love a good colada… So hold on to your Santa hats, folks, because it’s time to try the Candy Cane Kah-lada at Anaheim Produce!

You’ll find Anaheim Produce on Sunset Boulevard in the Sunset Ranch Market.

The stand itself is really pretty simple — basically a quick-service grab and go deal. But it’s part of the larger Sunset Ranch Market area (which also includes spots like Hollywood Scoops and the recently re-opened from refurbishment Rosie’s All-American Cafe and Catalina Eddie’s), offering plenty of outdoor, nicely shaded seating.

Review: Candy Cane and Gingerbread Gelato at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

One of my favorite parts of this time of year is seeing all of the Gingerbread House Displays at the Disney World Resort Hotels! Better yet, I love spying all of the new festive sweets available at the displays. And this year, The Boardwalk Inn is hosting not only an updated display, but a few new treats as well… .

For the past few years, the BoardWalk Inn has returned to celebrating its turn-of-the-century Atlantic seashore theme with its gingerbread display.

For 2015, the simultaneous display and shop (a la the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House) has been reimagined as Ginger’s Bread and Cookie Shoppe. [Read more…]
