Challenge Accepted: How One Family Completed the 2018 DFB Cupcake Crawl!

Y’all, when we issued the 2018 Walt Disney World Cupcake Crawl Challenge a couple weeks ago, we knew it had the potential to be a deliciously fun activity for our amazing DFB readers — but we didn’t know just how adorable it could be!

You’ll recall that the challenge included fourteen of our favorite Walt Disney World cupcakes — plus a few bonus items that we just couldn’t help adding. The Rose Gold Cupcake sold at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot has been a particular fan favorite — even with a whole bunch of rose gold treats popping up every. where.

1. Rose Gold Minnie Ears Cupcake, Sunshine Seasons, Epcot

We’re starting the crawl with the Rose Gold Minnie Mouse Ears Cupcake, which has taken the Disney cupcake world by storm! Minnie’s rose gold ears are something of a legend already, and the cupcake they’ve inspired is getting the same treatment. You will find your Rose Gold Minnie Mouse Ears Cupcake at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion in Future World at Epcot. (Yes, there are other Rose Gold Ears cupcakes in Disney World currently, but this one is the best. Trust us.)

Photo Tour: Animal Kingdom Starbucks Now Open

Starbucks opened today in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, completing the line-up of Starbucks locations in Walt Disney World parks (the others being Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery, Epcot’s Fountain View, and Hollywood Studios’ Trolley Car Cafe along with Downtown Disney’s two locations).

On a recent tour of the building’s exterior (formerly a merchandise store), we noticed what looked like coffee beans added to the design elements. Africa is one of three main regions from which Starbucks sources their coffee!

As you approach the Starbucks from the front of the park (located between Discovery Island and Africa), this is the first Entrance of two that you will encounter.

You’ll notice that the name “Creature Comforts” has stuck, which kind of make sense, right? I love the two little monkeys with their coffees flanking the sign. ;-)

The Store’s Official Name is Creature Comforts. And Yes, They Do Serve Monkeys Apparently.

But just in case you’re not sure where you are, a subtle mermaid logo sign is posted near the door.

New! Tree of Life Cupcake at Animal Kingdom’s Kusafiri Bakery

Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery is a simple , unassuming window-only bakery in Animal Kingdom’s Africa that boasts a LOT of cupcake goodness.

So, do you remember a few months ago, when we talked about some cupcake shake-ups at Kusafiri? To refresh your memory, a new (at that time) cupcake had joined the line-up: the Lion Cub Cupcake, featuring none other than Simba himself with a mane made of frosting.

At the same time, though, we found out that two other stars in the Disney cupcake realm had received a bit of a makeover, which left us slightly underwhelmed (the Zebra Cupcake and the White Chocolate Elephant Cupcake).

Well, there have been some more changes in Kusafiri’s cupcake world! First and foremost, with many thanks to DFB reader Cate C., we have a picture of the new Tree of Life Cupcake available now! Looks like this one’s for the chocolate lovers out there :) .

Cate shared that while this one was good, she preferred the passion fruit Simba cupcake overall. (Here’s our shot of that cutie, as a reminder :) ).
