Cafe Rix at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort is the hotel’s quick service and grab-and-go dining location. The pastry case here is usually a little above-par for a hotel food court, but this latest cupcake… takes the cake. And the dropper. And the buttercream. It just takes it all.
It’s time to stop into one of our favorite bakeries at Disneyland Resort — Jolly Holiday on Main Street, U.S.A.! — and we’re making our way with the brand new Disneyland Guidemap! It’s got a colorful design and Mickey on the drums in the Soundsational Parade, returning for a limited time to Disneyland!
So cool. And the Candy Brownie we discovered at Jolly Holiday echoes that color and fun! [Read more…]
If you’ve purchased (or acquired free!) the Disney Dining Plan for your next Walt Disney World vacation, you’re probably wondering how to maximize the Plan, getting the best and most satisfying food for your DDP dollar. The value of a Quick Service meal includes the cost, of course, but also the quality of the food and other variables like how it can save you credits, cash, time, or stress. We take all of those bits into consideration when we bring you our recommendations for DDP Quick Service values.
Here we take a look at nine of the best Quick Service values on the Disney Dining Plan!
Bengal Barbecue in Disneyland’s Adventureland is an awesome (and awesomely themed!) spot to grab a snack, and for Valentine’s Day (being celebrated for a few more days at Disneyland Resort!), they’ve got two great options. We sipped on the Piranha Lemonade Slushy, and we gotta say: we’re in love!
Piranha Lemonade Slushy is a mango and pineapple slushy with lychee and pomegranate popping pearls! It’s as refreshing to drink as it sounds!
In fact, it has been a few months since we went to Contempo Cafe for something other than a cupcake! But when I stopped by today (yes, for a cupcake) I noticed something new to me on the menu: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. Well, twist my arm – I just had to order it.
But, don’t worry… I found a fun cupcake too. 😉 Read on to find out more!
The Grilled Cheese is made with three cheeses – Fontina, Monterrey Jack, and Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb – and is on Sourdough Bread. It is served with Tomato Bisque and your choice of fries, homemade chips, or veggie slaw. I opted for the homemade chips.
Sprinkles Cupcakes locations in Walt Disney World and Disneyland have two returning cupcakes, and for one, the cupcake wizards of Sprinkles have found inspiration in the most important meal of the day! This isn’t the first time breakfast flavors have found their way onto (and into!) a Sprinkles Cupcake. Back in January the bakery offered four cereal cupcake options! (See our post about the cereal cupcakes here!)
But this first returning flavor is a little more subtle. It’s the Stuffed French Toast Cupcake featuring a raspberry-filled yellow cake topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting dusted with cinnamon sugar! [Read more…]
Walt Disney World guests looking to pick up the adorable and festive Mickey Sipper last week were disappointed to discover that it was sold out at locations in Magic Kingdom. If you recall, this expressive vessel arrived on the scene to celebrate Mickey’s 90th birthday back in November, and it stuck around for the celebration into the new year!

and to reminisce about Mickey’s birthday party!
Now we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good: the Mickey Sipper is back! [Read more…]
It’s almost time to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day, if you’re into it!), and Market House on Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A., has a Linzer Cookie that is totally ready for its close-up!
This is a duo of shortbread cookies fused together with sweet, tart strawberry jam! [Read more…]
Red Rose Tavern, the now years-long Beauty and the Beast overlay of Pinocchio Village Haus in Disneyland’s Fantasyland, has offered many lovely rose desserts in the time since the restaurant opened in 2017. It all began with the Lemon Rose Cake in February of that year.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you just knew the Donut Cart near Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Park was going to get in on the action. They’ve created two stylish donuts that are as delicious (and sweet!) as they are pretty. The Valentine Donut starts out simple enough with a basic yeast donut. But then… things get pink real fast.
Vanilla glaze is speckled with bright pink sugar sprinkles. Then there’s a swirl of frosting (much more on that in a sec!), and a white and pink heart-sharped marshmallow. [Read more…]
