Disney Food Pics of the Week: Hot Dogs

Your photo contributions to the Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza on flickr are soooooo mouthwatering! We love looking through your food pics!

The Disney Food Pics of the Week this week feature Disney hot dogs (we would have added corn dogs, but I think those should get their own feature)! For a classic theme park snack or meal, the hot dog is always a delicious option.

Loaded or plain — these hot dogs from Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom look fabulous!

Cream Cheese Pretzel Spotted in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

One of our favorite under-the-radar Disney snacks, Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzels, were first seen at Disney World in the Magic Kingdom and offered only at The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland.

Then, we were excited to find them at Fife & Drum Tavern in Epcot’s American Adventure pavilion.

If you are a fan of these pretzels, you’ll now be able to munch on one while touring Disney’s Hollywood Studios. On a recent visit, we spotted cream cheese pretzels at the Pretzel Garden on the Streets of America!

If you haven’t had one, these pretzels are filled with a sweet cream cheese (not really a “frosting,” but still sweet!), and covered in a dusting of [Read more…]

Snack Series: Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel Review and Some Pretzel Updates

Well, it was a pretzel kind of day on Friday in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot!

I sampled the famed Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel — now found at Fife and Drum — for the very first time, found out some details about the Sweet Cream Cheese pretzel in the Magic Kingdom, and learned more about the new (to WDW) Mickey-shaped pretzels!

Epcot’s Fife and Drum Offers Jalapeno Cheese, and Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzels

That’s right! We though they could only be found in one place in the parks (Animal Kingdom for the Jalapeno pretzel; Magic Kingdom for the Sweet Cream Cheese pretzel), but they can both be found in Epcot these days!

Epcot’s Fife and Drum, right outside of the American Adventure building, is the unassuming home for these very popular and sought after snacks! This spot is next to the near the Liberty Inn, so find a seat at the [Read more…]

Are You Ready for a Disney Dining Adventure?

We are!! We’re currently working on our upcoming e-Book: DFB Dining Adventures, Start Point: Magic Kingdom Area, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what to expect — as well as give you a reason to start thinking about your own dining adventures!

New DFB Dining Adventures e-Book Coming Soon!

Planning your dining can be extremely time-consuming, and making it fit around your plans in the parks can be even more difficult. We’ve had countless reader requests for pre-planned dining strategies that can be dropped right into your vacation plans. This next installment in our series of useful Disney Dining e-Books is our answer!

But we wanted to take it a step further and make it a LOT more fun than just a bunch of restaurant lists, so we invented the concept of the DFB Dining Adventures!

These adventures are a series of one-day, two-day, or one-week themed dining and attraction strategies that you can mix and match to fit YOUR vacation style! They’re an easy and fun way to make sure your visit to Walt Disney World is 100% unique!

What Will DFB Dining Adventures Look Like?

DFB Dining Adventures will include dining suggestions and activities that all fit into a fun theme! Here are just a few examples of the over 40 different Dining Adventures you’ll have to choose from in our new e-Book!

Snack Series: Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel

I have a confession. Until this past week, I had never actually eaten my very own sweet cream cheese pretzel in Walt Disney World. So when my husband and I decided to throw caution to the wind and head into the Magic Kingdom at 11pm on a Saturday during Spring Break, we figured it was high time to make a change.

After riding everything we possibly could, we headed over to the Lunching Pad and purchased one of these yummy treats. They look like regular soft pretzels, but they have a faint dusting of what seems like [Read more…]

Disney Food For Families: The Fab Four of Kid Food — Pizza, Pasta, Hot Dogs and Chicken Nuggets

Disney Food for Families columnist and Disney World Moms Panelist Erin Foster has more great info about kids’ dining in Disney World!

Casey's Corner Hot Dog, Fries, and Fixins

If your family is like mine, then at some point at least one of your children will go through a picky eater phase — where he or she will ONLY eat a certain type of food, texture of food, color of food, or food prepared in a certain way.

Luckily the chefs at Walt Disney World are well acquainted with the picky eater syndrome. They’ve seen it all before and can accommodate most childhood food idiosyncrasies. That’s one of the reasons WDW became such a frequent destination for us; dining out with our fussy daughter was a breeze compared to other vacation spots.

The Fab Four of Kid Food

Some common variations on the picky eater theme are the kids who will only eat pizza, or pasta, hot dogs, or chicken nuggets. While these favorites are, of course, readily available in the parks, they are not all available at [Read more…]

Lunching Pad Hot Dogs Undergo Another Change

Remember the new hot dog menu that debuted earlier this month in Tomorrowland? Well, the sign guys have been busy again, and the menu’s been updated already. Looks like the Rueben dog has been pitched to the curb and we’re left with Taco and Philly Cheese Steak dogs.
