Snack Series: Tomato Basil Soup at Pinocchio Village Haus

I’m a soup-lover from way back, and one of my favorites has always been tomato basil. So when I was on a recent research trip at the Magic Kingdom, I was very excited to find tomato basil soup listed on the menu at Pinocchio Village Haus!

Soup is a great snack — cheap, filling, and usually carrying fewer calories and fat than other snacks at the Kingdom.

But, at the time, I thought to myself — how good could it be? I’ve had exceptional tomato basil soup, but I’ve also had plenty of versions that don’t come close to making the cut.

Without too many expectations, I found a seat upstairs at the Village Haus and dug in — and it was amazing! I’m not kidding you. I don’t recommend something to you if I don’t love it, and I’m telling you this soup is gorgeous. Savory, buttery, creamy, and very flavorful. Usually when I’m researching, my companions and I split it and I only take a few bites, but I’m pretty sure I commandeered this cup of soup and just about ate the whole thing!

Snack Series: Boardwalk Bakery’s Cheesecake Brownie

On the same trip to Disney World’s Boardwalk Bakery where I found the (life-altering) peanut butter cupcake, I tried one of the bakery’s famous Cheesecake Brownies for the very first time!!

Boardwalk Bakery Cheesecake Brownie

This brownie has been around for quite a while — its recipe is even highlighted in Disney’s Delicious Disney Desserts cookbook — and there’s a reason why this snack/dessert has stood the test of time.

The rich, tangy cheesecake taste coupled with that strong, super-sweet dark chocolate brownie offers the perfect marriage of two delicious desserts; but I will say that this snack is both large, and super-rich — it’s ideal for sharing!

Snack Series: Beignets at Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter

Made famous at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans, Louisiana, beignets are a delicious, doughnut-like treat. And if you’re lucky enough to visit Sassagoula Floatworks food court at Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter, in Disney World, you can try some yourself!

In fact Sassagoula Floatworks, which is themed after a Mardi Gras float-building warehouse, is worth the trip. The spectacle of the partially constructed float decor is a photo-trip in itself!

On my recent WDW trip, I had my first taste of beignets, and I can safely say I’ll be back for more! What I find particularly interesting is that the beignets are not pre-made. In fact, when we ordered them, we had to wait 5-10 minutes while they were made.

First, raw dough was brought into the kitchen from the back and pounded thin.
