We’re kicking off our latest jaunt at the most Magical of All Kingdoms…
A recent visit to the Magic Kingdom revealed changes and additions — both big and small — to Counter Service spots all over the park.
It’s officially the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is happening, the gingerbread display is up at the Contemporary Resort, and you can feel the holiday cheer in the air!
We’ve spotted some fun holiday food around the parks and we know more is on its way! Before you know it all the hotels will be decking their halls too.
We have a lot to share, so let’s jump right in…

For those of you who can’t imagine autumn at Disney World (or anywhere else, for that matter) without the flavor of pumpkin, we have some tasty news for you today!
Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream has just returned to L’artisan des Glaces in Epcot’s France Pavilion!
With just one month left before the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival begins, the news was all about that huge event this week!
And why not? With the Festival celebrating its 20th anniversary, it promises to be the biggest and best yet.
We have a lot to share, so let’s jump right in!
After weeks of non-stop Disney Food News, all was a little quieter the first full week of August.
But there were a few exciting developments this week. Our biggest news? You’ll be able to enjoy a brand new Holiday Character Meal option at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this season!
Let’s take a look at the details as well as other Disney Food News and Finds for the week below.
More seasonal creations out of of L’Artisan des Glaces in Epcot’s France!
You know the drill… just think of the Pumpkin Spice, Peppermint, and Strawberries and Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches (not to mention the red, white, and blue version of the Vanilla Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich that makes its way around in time for Bastille Day in July) that ring in the flavors — and even colors — of the corresponding holiday or season.
And with (technically) two months of summer left, it’s a great time to enjoy the new Peaches & Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich that just hit the scene.
Housemade Vanilla Ice Cream tucked into a peach macaron…
Now that doesn’t sound like a bad way to celebrate all that’s left of summer at all, does it? [Read more…]
Happy Second Anniversary, L’Artisan des Glaces!
From the moment the doors opened two years ago in the former spot of Boulangerie Patisserie in the France Pavilion, it was clear L’Artisan des Glaces was not your typical ice cream stop.
The Boulangerie relocated to a larger space, and L’Artisan des Glaces began to carve its own unique niche in the Disney dining scene almost immediately upon its debut.
So, what made the arrival of this little shop so special?
First of all, every single one of the 16 flavors of ice cream and sorbet was — and still is — made in-house.
And second? The shop began to introduce some incredible and unique ice cream confections that we’d never seen the likes of before in Walt Disney World!
As we wish L’Artisan a huge Happy Birthday and Bon Anniversaire, we wanted to take a peek at just a few of these creations that are now a part of the eating scene in Epcot!
Thanks to the addition of L’Artisan, Epcot guests 21 and over suddenly had the option of pairing their ice cream flavor of choice with…BOOZE! Grand Marnier, Clement Rhum from Martinique, or Whipped Cream flavored Vodka could be added to create their own gorgeous Ice Cream Martini.
Between this and the rich, creamy homemade ice cream, L’Artisan started earning its terrific reputation from the get-go. Refusing, however, to rest on their laurels, the ice cream artists have continued to change things up and crank out surprises year-round.
Additional treats began to appear later in 2013, starting with the Chocolate Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich. This decadent snack is a scoop of chocolate ice cream sandwiched inside a large, crisp-on-the-outside, chewy on the inside chocolate macaron cookie.
While you can still get the Chocolate Macaron Ice Cream sandwich any time of year, new versions of this treat began [Read more…]
We have an almost-birthday to celebrate… L’Artisan des Glaces is nearly two years old!
L’Artisan des Glaces opened in late May of 2013 and has been serving up 16 daily flavors of house made ice cream and sorbet ever since. Oh, and more than a few Cafe Glaces and Pressed Brioche and Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches. Not to mention an Ice Cream Martini or two…
You may be dedicated to your favorite flavor or enjoy trying something new each time, such as the ever-changing seasonal macaron sandwiches.
Me? I’ve just gotta try their newest flavor whenever I’m in Epcot’s France, because they never seem to disappoint with the latest ice cream creation.
The most recent addition of Lemon with Crispy Meringue Ice Cream presented a bit of a conundrum for me, though (even if I can never argue with an Ice Cream Mickey!).
If you’ve been reading the DFB for a while, then you probably know how much I seriously love all things lemon, so I was pretty pumped about the lemon ice cream. On the flip side, you may also know that I don’t care for [Read more…]
