Review: Beauty and the Beast Belle Cupcake in Disney Parks

Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes. These are three of our favorite words. The only thing that can improve on the word cupcake is to put the word character in front of it. We’ve touted our love of character-inspired cupcakes many, many, so many times. Darth Vader? Check! Lady and the Tramp and Cinderella? Check and check! Elsa? Anna’s Birthay? Olaf? It’s serious bizzness.

So when I saw this little piece of loveliness at the Magic Kingdom Confectionery last week, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. (Like, for real, I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I finally got one.) And there’s no way you can fight the urge this time. So just give in. Say it with us: “We’ll take a Belle Cupcake, please.”

Spotted: Candy Case in Main Street Confectionery Undergoing Refurbishment

If you stop by the Main Street Confectionery over the coming weeks, you’ll find that things look quite different.

That’s because the Confection Case is undergoing a 6 week refurbishment, and is therefore closed.

But don’t fret! Not only is the rest of The Confectionery open (so you can still buy all sorts of in-house and prepackaged goodies), you can also still easily find your favorite house-made Disney confections —items like Mickey Krispy Treats, Cake Pops, Caramel Apples, and English Toffee — at Big Top Treats in New Fantasyland and Prairie Outpost & Supply in Frontierland! And the candy kitchen is still functioning at the Confectionery, so you can even get some house-made treats right here! Just not sold out of the case.

The six-week timeframe should position the reopening to occur around the beginning of November — right when the treats in the case will likely receive their annual holiday makeover into hues of red, green, and frosty winter blue.

In the meantime, let’s take a little tour to see what The Confectionery looks like at the moment.

It’s a bit disorienting to see such a hallmark of the shop behind refurb walls, so just as a reminder, the Case is to the left of the open kitchen where you can watch Cast Members create the treats. [Read more…]

Review: Minnie’s Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies

You may have passed by boxes upon boxes of Minnie’s Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies in several merchandise spots around Disney World and Disneyland without even noticing.

Found throughout popular merchandise and snack combo stops such as Magic Kingdom’s Big Top Souvenirs (home to Big Top Treats) and Epcot’s Mouse Gears in Disney World, to the Fantasia Shop in the Disneyland Hotel (where I purchased mine), these grab and go snacks aren’t exactly what you would call high profile on the Disney snacking scene.

Disney Food Post Round-Up: June 28, 2015

Here we are — right in the middle of the lazy, hazy, crazy days of Summer! The crowds and the heat are up at Disney.

We Bid Goodbye to Plastic Cheese at Counter Service Locations

And so’s the fun! With lots of new spots opening, like Vivoli Gelateria in Downtown Disney (soon to be Disney Springs) and new experiences to try (Frozen Summer Fun, anyone?), there’s never a dull moment.

But we’ve also seen some crazy big news this week — at least in terms of Disney Foods with a Cult Following. That’s right — I’m lookin’ at YOU, Plastic Cheese.

We won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Let’s take a look around at what we’ve covered, and then see all the food fun that’s happening around the interwebs this week.
