Disney’s Soda Fountain: The Brave Sundae & Breakfast with Merida

Last Friday I had the pleasure of visiting the El Capitan in Hollywood to see Disney/Pixar’s latest masterpiece, Brave…

…and then to indulge in a little post-movie treat!

“Merida’s Perfect Target” Sundae

After the movie, we headed next door to Disney’s Soda Fountain to check out their newest ice cream creation inspired by Brave: Merida’s Perfect Target. The sundae features shortbread cookie crumbs topped with strawberry cheesecake ice cream, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, and a fresh strawberry. 

It’s finished off with a shortbread “Target” cookie that is designed to look like the archery targets Merida aims for in the movie.

Merida's Perfect Target Sundae

I love fruity sundaes and I love cheesecake, so this combo was perfect for me. I was a little concerned about the shortbread cookie and cookie crumbles; I thought that maybe they’d be [Read more…]

“Spaghetti” Sundae at Disney’s Soda Fountain!

For the run of Lady and the Tramp up at El Capitain Theatre in Hollywood, Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Store is offering another featured sundae! This time, it’s the L’amore e un Spaghetti Sundae — an adorable sundae designed to look like it came straight out of Tony’s Italian Restaurant from the movie.

Strawberry & vanilla ice cream are swirled with strawberry & chocolate sauces, then topped with two “meatless” balls (aka chocolate truffles) accompanied by a serving of “spaghetti” icing. Isn’t it [Read more…]

A Valentine’s Day “Family Date” at Disney’s Soda Fountain

When I think of  Lady and the Tramp, my mind immediately goes straight to the “Spaghetti Kiss” outside of Tony’s Italian restaurant where the cute pups enjoy their first date. Well… that and the Siamese cat scene. 

This year, Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Store in Hollywood is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a very special candlelight dinner where you can engage in your own spaghetti kiss, if you please…

Here comes the spaghetti kiss!

My family and I headed to Hollywood on a family “Valentine’s Day” date night to check it out.

The first thing I noticed was the adorable set up. The decor included red and white table cloths, candlelight, and even bread sticks. Just like the movie. Disney even added an extra touch, a [Read more…]

With Beauty and the Beast 3D hitting theaters this past Friday, Disney’s Soda Fountain is celebrating with a special movie themed sundae. My family and I hit the road to Hollywood to check it out.

Beauty and the Beast Sundae Table Topper

Almond Praline Ice Cream with a hint of strawberry sauce, swirls of whipped cream, and topped with a “Luscious” candy rose was the description.

However, as soon as it arrived at the table, I noticed that the sundae also had caramel in it! SCORE!

Beauty and the Beast Sundae


Although I’m still a bit sad about the fact that the Soda Fountain switched from Dewar’s ice cream to Dreyer’s, the Almond Praline that was used in this sundae was quite tasty!

I am normally not a big strawberry sauce fan, but it literally was just a [Read more…]

Review: Disney’s Soda Fountain & Studio Store in Hollywood

Dining in Disneyland columnist Heather Sievers has an awesome review of a Disney food location that many of us haven’t seen…

When most people hear the word Disney, they don’t think of Hollywood.  However, located right across the street from Grauman’s (aka Mann’s) Chinese Theatre, there is a very fun place that many Disney fans may have not had a chance to visit.

Disney’s Soda Fountain & Studio Store is conveniently connected to [Read more…]
