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.
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.
OK, this is AWESOME! Thanks to my instagram buddy @elbellfromarendelle for tagging us in this great news!
There’s a 2319 Emergency Cupcake at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom today to celebrate 2-3-19! No idea what a 2319 Emergency is? (It’s OK — some of us had to google it, too!) In my favorite Disney movie, Monster’s Inc., you’ll remember the 2319 Emergency when an unfortunate monster was contaminated with a child’s white sock — a dreaded outcome for any scarer!!
Well the Magic Kingdom pastry chefs (Jenna Rose Petri, specifically) came up with an incredible idea to celebrate this one-time-only day!
And we were excited to break the news that the loaded waffles were back at this quick-service staple recently, too!
Well, the pastry wizards at Roaring Fork are at it again, this time bringing the flavor with the Chocolate Peppermint cupcake of the month.
It should come as no surprise to you that the DFB team loves photography. We take thousands of photos every year, and we honestly relish every one. So generating a list of the DFB’s Most Wow-Worthy Pictures This Year was an impossible task. But we buckled down and found a few we wanted to share with you once more!
Join us as we share fifteen must-see pictures from this year!
Giant Mickey Birthday Krispy — Magic Kingdom
We had a blast celebrating Mickey’s 90th birthday in November, and you know that all those specialty eats had us pretty excited. But when we saw the size of the Giant Mickey Birthday Krispy we knew it needed lots of photographic love. We like how this picture captures the breadth of this huge krispy treat — not an easy feat in a World of oversized, fantastical things!
Plus there’s lovely sunlight bouncing off that smooth chocolate. Love!
Sprinkles Cupcakes in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs and Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney knows a thing or two about celebrating holidays with its cupcakes, cookies, drinks, and more.
Earlier this year, Sprinkles announced its new line of holiday packaging, which is a lovely mix of snowflake designs and metallic gold!
It seems everywhere we turn in Disneyland there are new festive treats for us to try — and we are not complaining! You can check this post to see EVERYTHING we’ve tried so far!
Next up on our tour are the holiday sweets at French Market Restaurant, located in New Orleans Square in Disneyland Park.
French Market is close to Haunted Mansion, which is currently decked out as “Haunted Mansion Holiday” and completely overlaid with Nightmare Before Christmas decorations. Because of this, they tend to keep their holiday treats on theme, featuring Jack Skellington and other fan favorites.
We occasionally hear chatter from readers who think Walt Disney World kicks off the Halloween season too early. After all, the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was on August 17 — 2.5 months before the actual holiday and, really, still in the throes of a sweltering summer in central Florida (not unlike today). But one thing you’ve gotta give the Disney Parks props for is providing plenty of seasonal snacks to keep us interested. 😉
Enter this Halloween Cupcake, spotted all over Animal Kingdom!
Aside from serving up some seriously sweet treats like Frosting Shots and Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches, Sprinkles Cupcakes is the go-to spot for, well, cupcakes in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World and at Downtown Disney at Disneyland.
And one thing we love about Sprinkles is that there is always something new and creative in the cupcake case.
The theme at Disney Springs right now is Beat the Heat. In the dog days of summer we certainly agree!
We scoured Disney World’s shopping and dining district and found what’s new so you know where to stop the next time you’re at Disney Springs for a cool drink, snack, meal, or air conditioned retail therapy!
