Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts

Food Challenge: The DFB Holiday Cupcake Crawl

When I started thinking about what to get you for the holidays, it came to me in a flash: what could be more perfect than a brand new food challenge?

And we’re not talking about just any challenge. Introducing the…

2012 DFB Holiday Cupcake Crawl!

You can follow the path that we lay out for you, or you can can choose to mix in a few entries from the 2012 Cupcake Crawl. (Heck, we’ll even let you choose a cake or two from the 2011 challenge!)

Remember, many of these cupcakes can be purchased with a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, so be sure to stock up and save them for this important undertaking!

Here we go!

Epcot: Cupcakes Required = 4 Mini

Let’s begin in Epcot, where I’m so excited to share with you a really super fun find from Epcot’s America Pavilion.

American Adventure Gingerbread House
Within Liberty Inn, you’ll find another life-size gingerbread house, similar in scope to the Grand Floridian’s display. And much like that house, you can purchase goodies here as well!
