This week we had a chance to swing by two of our favorite Value Resorts — Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Art of Animation Resort. Both resorts received some menu updates in their food courts, but first let’s check in on the progress of that Skyliner Station!
This weekend we’ll be celebrating 90 years with MICKEY MOUSE!
Suffice it to say, our favorite Mouse has had a HUGE effect on pop culture over the years, so what better place to mark the decades with Mickey than at Pop Century Resort, where we’re checking out What’s New!
Mickey’s Birthday Activities
Pop Century will be celebrating the Main Mouse with Mickey’s A-Mouse-ing Birthday Bash on Mickey’s birthday, November 18th! Special activities will include Character Greetings, Place the Party Hat on the Mouse, and a Hot Diggity Dance Party. [Read more…]
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of checking out EVERYWHERE to eat at the Disney World Value Resorts!
Disney World’s value resorts — Pop Century, Art of Animation, and the All Star Resorts — offer so many innovative eats as well as picky eater classics. We’re HUGE fans of the Edible Cookie Dough at All Star Sports!
Find out what to eat and what to skip in our full food tour! [Read more…]
This week we were in search of seasonal treats and menu updates in the Art of Animation, Pop Century, All Star Music, All Star Sports, and All Star Movies resorts. Time to take a look at some spooky and seasonal updates and eats!
Disney World All Star Sports Updates and Menu Changes
We were so excited to find some of these fall-themed baked goods that we already wrote a post dedicated to them! They look super fun, but they actually taste pretty good, too!
Join me in welcoming guest reviewer, Corinna. Corinna is a Food Allergy Consultant and mother of 2 beautiful girls who both have severe food allergies. She loves to travel with her family and Disney has been a big part of her travels for many years from Disneyland to Walt Disney World to Adventures by Disney. This post was inspired by her most recent visit to Disney World in April 2018. Read on…
Disney World Snack Adventures with Peanut & Tree Nut Allergies
We were able to do a dream trip to the Walt Disney World Parks for spring break. Let’s just say it was a busy week, but oh so awesome! Our family of four had the time of our lives discovering the happy Disney atmosphere, the rides, and of course the FOOD.
In our family, we LOVE Disney because they are really good about offering safe options for those with food allergies. In this post, I thought I would share some of the absolutely delicious snacks we found that are safe for peanut and tree nut allergies.
Keep in mind that you should always check whether a snack continues to be safe and if it’s safe for your allergies, because things can change at any time. Disney provides an “allergy binder” or “allergy menu” at every food station that shows the ingredients of every item and what the allergens are. We got used to asking to see the allergy binder before we bought & ate anything.
First of all when you’re at Disney, you won’t find many baked goods that are safe for peanut and tree nut allergies. But fear not, there are lots of other goodies that will fill your sweet snacking tooth! Here are a few of them…
Churros at Magic Kingdom
Even though baked goods safe for guests with peanut and tree nut allergies are not plentiful, this one makes up for it by itself! The flavor of cinnamon and sugar surround a crisp, cake-like batter. You can find churros at several of the small food stands scattered throughout the Parks. Yum!
Additional churros can be found these Walt Disney World locations: Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, Dino Diner, Anaheim Produce, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, Cool Ship, Storybook Circus Pretzel Cart, and The Lunching Pad.
Funnel Cakes with Ice Cream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
So what’s better than a baked good? A baked good with ice cream! Safe ice cream can be difficult to find for people with peanut and tree nut allergies in general, which is why this treat is so special. It combines two hard-to-find goodies into one over-the-top treat. This goodie is especially perfect to cool you down in the heat of the day, and you can find it at Oasis Canteen.
If you’re touring other areas of Walt Disney World, you’ll find more funnel cakes on the menu at the Funnel Cake Stand in Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion, Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, and the Funnel Cake Kiosk along Disney’s BoardWalk.
Violet Lemonade at Epcot
We were lucky to be at Disney during Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival which runs until May 28, 2018. During this time there are additional “outdoor kitchens” throughout World Showcase. One of the outdoor kitchens we visited was Pineapple Promenade.
Not only could you get Dole Whip here but they also had a selection of unique and refreshing drinks. We opted for the allergy-friendly violet lemonade. Complete with a gorgeous and edible violet right on top!
Dole Whip at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
In our family, a vacation to Disney isn’t complete without consuming copious amounts of Dole Whip. My kids were talking about it for quite awhile before we went. Which is why Tamu Tamu Refreshments in the Africa area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom was such a welcome sight for us. It was an easy decision; Dole Whip it is!
Need more Dole Whip? This tasty treat can also be found around Walt Disney World at Aloha Isle, Pineapple Lanai, Barefoot Pool Bar (served with rum), Marketplace Snacks, and Everything Pop food court.

Did you know, did you know? We love some Disney snacks around here. 🙂
And part of the reason that we love them so much is that we know that you do, too! In fact, I’m 100% confident that I could spend an entire vacation in the ‘World and sustain myself on snacks alone.
And that’s why I dedicate a lot of real estate in the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining to offering you pictures and details about snacks in all four corners of Walt Disney World.
And if that’s not enough for you, I’ve also written guides dedicated to the snacks in each Park as well as special events happening throughout the year — which, believe it or not, usher forth their own seasonally-themed treats. You can discover it all in our DFB Guide Everything Bundle.
But more about that in a minute. Right now, let’s look at one of my favorite lists: Must-Eat Snacks in Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. The list comes to you courtesy of the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining. And if you like what you see, check out our DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining 2018 Second Edition. With more than 650 pages of information, we leave no Disney Food topic uncovered!
But let’s get back to that list. 🙂 Time to check ’em out!
Greetings from Pop Culture Past… ‘cuz we’re back at Everything Pop Food Court at Pop Century Resort!
Everything Pop Food Court
We JUST visited Landscape of Flavors in the Art of Animation Resort to try their new Miniature Whoopie Pies. I mention that because those unfamiliar with this area of Disney World may not know that it’s just a quick stroll over the bridge across Hourglass Lake to Pop Century. This is a huge boon for guests at either resort who have easy access to arguably two of the best food courts in Disney World. Hoping to try more exotic flavors? Hop on over to the Landscape. Craving comfort food served up with a side of quirkiness? Take a stroll to Everything Pop!
But on this visit, fresh from Art of Animation, I couldn’t help but notice that Everything Pop is hopping on the Mini Train, too. In this case, it’s an assortment of Mini Dessert Tarts up for grabs, so let’s “pop” in for bite!
Everything POP Food Court certainly lives up to its name…
It hosts a bright and fun atmosphere with lots of color and creativity. [Read more…]
Are you ready for one huge hunka-hunka cupcake? Because THAT’S what you’ll get with the King Cupcake, our latest #OnTheList item found at Disney’s Pop Century Resort!
Elvis Presley has no shortage of diehard fans to this day, but it appears he was quite the fanboy himself… particularly of a good ol’ peanut butter and banana sandwich. But it didn’t stop there — he was also known to enjoy this classic combo with bacon. [Read more…]
