Disney Food Pics of the Week: Soft Serve Treats!

Summer’s coming! And we know that you’ll be looking to stay cool at Disney. And I can’t think of a much better way than by enjoying some terrific soft serve treats!

And when it comes to soft serve at Disney, you certainly have options! From Dole Whip to Root Beer Floats made with the creamy stuff, there’s no end to the variety you’ll find.

So we weren’t too surprised when we checked out pics that our members have posted on Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza, our Flickr group. We came away with all sorts of soft serve inspiration!

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, head over there! But before you do, let’s take a look at some of the goodies we found while we were surfin’.

What makes a Soft Serve Ice Cream Cone even more delish? How about enjoying it with an awesome background, like Paradise Pier! I can almost feel that beautiful California sunshine coming through the pic, can’t you??

Pineapple Soft Serve at Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Photographer: V No Privacy

We love that Pineapple Soft Serve has become a mainstay at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. We expect to see the popular treat back again at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival as well!

This great pic features treats from Pineapple Promenade at this year’s Flower and Garden Festival. It really captures the contrast between the soft serve and the Sammy’s Beach Bar Red Head Macadamia Nut Flavored Rum!

Whether or not you want to build a snowman, no doubt you’ll enjoy sinking your teeth into a monster-size Olaf Caramel Apple, one of the many Frozen foods we’ve seen this past year in the parks. His little Carrot Nose might just be my favorite part.

Frites and Mint Julep

Photographer: Michael Greening
There are a couple of different spots in Disneyland that I must check out every time I visit, and one of them is Cafe Orleans. A trip just wouldn’t feel complete with at least one Monte Cristo Sandwich, and an order of Frites to share (HA!). (Michael did it right here, with two sauces!) And while you’re at it, you have to try Disneyland’s famed Mint Juleps at least once!

Banana Kulfi from Sanaa

Photographer: Matthew Cackett

Anytime I can dine at Sanaa in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, I am so there! Located in Kidani Village, it’s a hidden gem with some of the most wonderful food I’ve ever had at Disney (ahem. Butter Chicken.) Desserts are delish, too! Try the Banana Kulfi if you make it here for a meal and it’s on the menu.

Can’t make it to Paris but you already have your trip to Walt Disney World planned? Then you’re golden. Because a trip to Les Chefs de France in the France Pavilion will positively transport you to the City of Lights. And the perfect sweet ending to a meal there is the Profiteroles au Chocolat. I can’t resist having them!

Isn’t it awesome when we get to enjoy our holiday favorites? In some parts of the country, tamales are a beloved holiday food, and I love that Rancho del Zocalo in Disneyland honors that. Now I know what I’d like to have for dinner…

Turkey Leg Krispie Treat

Photographer: Jobber99

When is a Jumbo Turkey Leg not made of meat? When it’s made of cereal, marshmallows, and butter, of course! The Turkey Leg Krispie has to be one of the most awesome Krispies we’ve seen. Which one do you prefer — the savory or sweet version?

Is It Turkey or Is It a Krispie??

Mickey Krispie Treat Covered in Reese’s Pieces

Krispie Treats are pretty much awesome by themselves. But if we were going to try to make them better, I’m pretty sure that a dunk in Chocolate and a roll in Mini-Reese’s Pieces would probably spring to mind!

Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian

It just wouldn’t be Christmas at Walt Disney World without a trip to see the huge Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. I love this shot, which shows you the scale of the house and captures some of the beautiful lobby interior of the hotel as well! (Keep an eye on the chimney — you may just see smoke rising from the house when you’re there!)

After a day of touring all of the beautiful gingerbread displays at Walt Disney World, it’s pretty normal to start craving those spicy cookies! That’s when a shingle from Disney’s BoardWalk will come in handy for takeaway holiday noshing!

Disney Food Pics of the Week: Fun Food at 50s Prime Time Cafe

We’re back with another fun edition of Disney Food Pics of the Week!

We never pass up a chance to visit a classic — 50s Prime Time Cafe!

You’ll find this throwback spot in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And a meal will send your spiraling back in time to the 1950s. Enjoy lunch or dinner from the comfort of formica tables and vinyl chairs — all while you watch TV and your “cousins” bring you the best home cooked-style meals!

And judging from a trip through Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza — our Flickr page — you guys love it, too!

Today we’re sharing some of our favorite photos that you’ve captured of meals at this kitschy spot. Let’s take a look!

Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken

Who can resist good fried chicken? Well, Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken is some of the best we’ve had at Disney. Check out this gorgeous snap!

Finish Your Green Beans…Or Else!

Photographer: Nancy RK

The antics of the staff — your “cousins” — at 50s Prime Time Cafe are the stuff of Disney legends. You had better know the color of the soap if you use the restroom (FYI, it wasn’t blue anymore on my last visit!), and for heaven’s sake, keep your elbows off the table! And some scary things can happen if you don’t eat all your veggies…

Pommes Frites at Cafe Orleans

Photographer: Daniel Staten

One of my top spots to eat in all of Disneyland is Cafe Orleans! And when I’m there, I can’t resist having all of my favorites — their Monte Cristo Sandwich, Mickey-Shaped Beignets — and of course, Pommes Frites with Remoulade for dipping! They’re outta this world!! (Kudos to Daniel for getting two sauces; good choice!)

Fritto Misto at Via Napoli

Photographer: Tana Murphy

Whenever we are in the mood for pizza at Disney, it’s time to head to Via Napoli in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion. But they also have some amazing appetizers as well. Their Fritto Misto Platter is an assortment of Fried Cheese, Arancini, Veggies, and Calamari and is served with Pomodoro Piccante Sauce. I LOVE this platter.
