Disney Recipe: Strawberry Twists from Maurice’s Treats in Disneyland

I’m missing Disneyland, and all the fabulous food that you can get there today. But I’m also seriously craving a treat to go with my tea, so I think it’s high time to discuss one of the newer pastries that you can get in the Happiest Place on Earth.

I’m talkin’ Twists. You can get them at Maurice’s Treats in Fantasy Faire, the newly opened Disney Princess headquarters in the park.

Dining in Disneyland Review: Maurice’s Treats at the New Fantasy Faire

There are some NEW EATS in Disneyland and we’ve got the scoop!!

With the new Fantasy Faire opening at Disneyland this week, park goers are very excited to get a peek at what has been hidden by walls for months now…

I was lucky enough to score a wristband to one of the Annual Passholder “sneak preview” days just before the official opening.

Atmosphere

I have to say there is nothing like a brand new, sparkling area at a Disney Park.  I loved the themeing and details.  The colors were amazing; so bright and fresh even on a gloomy day. (And when I say gloomy, I mean pouring rain.)

You can see in the photo below how dark the sky was, but you can also see how awesome the view at the entrance to Fantasy Faire is (tip: a great spot for a castle photo opp)!

The new area features princesses, princesses and more princesses. But me? I was excited to get in line for the new snack cart, Maurice’s Treats. Belle’s father has cooked up some  fun new goodies that I’m sure will be a hit in the park.

Maurice’s Treats stands right across from the new Royal Theatre, and it’s a perfect place to grab a snack before you catch a viewing of “Tangled” & “Beauty and the Beast.”
