Happy Weekend!! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking you on a food tour of EVERY restaurant in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland in Walt Disney World!

Be Our Guest Restaurant

Be Our Guest Restaurant

When it comes to dining, Fantasyland is best known as home to two of the most popular dining experiences in Disney World, with Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant. But it’s not all Castles and Princesses when it comes to Fantasyland restaurants, where you’ll find everything from iconic park treats like Specialty Caramel Apples to Cinnamon Rolls to something by the name of the “Cheshire Cat Tail.” We’ll tell you where to find all those and MUCH more as we check out every single food stop in Fantasyland!

News and Review! Loaded Tots And Fried Twinkies Debut at Disney World’s Friar’s Nook

Our favorite Friar is serving up a new menu of LOADED TATER TOTS — with a Fried Twinkie for dessert! — at Friar’s Nook!

And “nook” is definitely the operative word in the name of this tiny Fantasyland Counter Service spot, which you’ll find in the shadow of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It’s basically a row of counters with some general tables just outside where guests can also eat their ice cream from Storybook Treats.

So, it was surprising when this little spot started serving up some BIG dishes, like the newly retired Barbecue Chicken Mac and Cheese. Suddenly, this humble little kiosk was totally on the radar.

And now it’s right back up there with a brand new menu of LOADED TOTS!!!

Review: Red Velvet Cake Available at Magic Kingdom Locations

Ooh, y’all, have we got some news for you in the world of Magic Kingdom seasonal desserts! These are the desserts that come and go as the seasons progress, causing us both joy (Yea! New flavors!) and heartache (No! I have to wait another year for my favorite pumpkin everything!).

In this case, we are rejoicing because Red Velvet Cake is now available in the Magic Kingdom!

We found ours at Friar’s Nook, but it’s also available as a dessert item at Pecos Bill’s. At Friar’s Nook, we’re pretty used to seeing these seasonal delights come and go, so we can’t promise this beauty will be available forever. But for now, it’s fantastic.
