Dining in Disneyland: Summertime S’mores Treats Hit the Disneyland Resort

In the midst of the big Disneyland 60th Celebration, we keep getting surprised with so many fun treats!  On July 1st, the Disneyland Resort introduced a line of S’mores treats that are not to be missed.  There are 4 fantastic new items that include a S’mores Marshmallow Wand, a S’mores Gourmet Caramel Apple, S’mores Bark, & a S’mores Rice Krispy Treat.

S’mores a la Wilderness Lodge

Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge carries the atmosphere of America’s great National Park Lodges — places where tall trees, fresh earth, clear lakes, and campfires are the backdrop for incredible vacations and explorations. And some quintessential eats at places like this are, of course, S’mores!!

For those who aren’t sure what S’mores are, they’re a campfire dessert made by smooshing a roasted marshmallow with a piece of chocolate (Hershey’s is standard) between two graham crackers.

Wilderness Lodge offers two versions of S’mores in its restaurants: the S’mores cupcake at Roaring Fork, and the S’mores cheesecake at Whispering Canyon Cafe!

The S’mores The Better!

smoresIn honor of those Disney fans heading to Tent Fest in Walt Disney World this weekend, I got the great suggestion to chat a bit about Disney s’mores!

S’mores on Demand
There are two restaurants that currently have fun s’mores desserts on the menu; the first is more of a kid-friendly version, while the second will satisfy any of our many grown-up marshmallow cravings:

Le Cellier’s colorful s’mores-on-a-stick has been a go-to kids’ dessert for years, and it never fails to impress. “Built” with a graham cracker, chocolate, and ice cream base, the “wow” factor comes with a sprinkle-y marshmallow topping it all off.

The 50’s Prime Time Cafe s’mores dessert is a more “gourmet” offering — mostly because they can use a blow torch to make it — but the fun of having those ooey gooey marshmallows arrive on your table [Read more…]
