We were where it all started for Walt Disney World – in the Magic Kingdom. We found new merch, food, and some construction updates for you this week!
Disneyland Resort is the land of Mickey Mouse, princesses, and churros. Okay, maybe that’s not an official designation, but churros are a quintessential part of the Disneyland experience. With so many from which to choose (and even more available during Pixar Fest!), there’s a churro for everyone!
Our Disneyland correspondent, Heather (check her @DiningInDisney on Instagram!), is always up for a new churro, and she brings us the Pineapple Churro today! She picked this up from the churro cart in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
It’s the weekend! And we’re celebrating it with another DFB Video today where we’re “walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.” to take a FOOD TOUR!
There’s nothing quite like those first steps down Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom during your Disney World vacation with Cinderella Castle directly in view. Among all the shops, sounds, sights and even smells — because who doesn’t love the fragrance wafting from the Main Street Popcorn Cart? — are plenty of terrific spots to grab a snack or meal throughout your Magic Kingdom day. From hot dogs to ice cream to Starbucks coffee and (so much!) beyond, there is plenty on Main Street to keep you going! And we’re showing all of it to you by taking you on a Main Street Food Tour in our latest DFB YouTube Video! [Read more…]
Found a couple of mini items at the Main Street Confectionery in Disney World today that I had to share!
First — three kinds of cookie bites. These look just like the giant “normal sized” cookies you can get in the parks, but they’ve been shrunk down to what many of us would consider to be the size of the standard cookies we bake at home. However, at Disney, these are considered bite-size!
You can purchase Raspberry White Chocolate cookies (which have chocolate chips in them as well for some reason), Chocolate chip supreme cookies, and delectable [Read more…]

What makes a better relaxing breakfast than a cinnamon roll? Luckily, Disney World and Disneyland have you covered — each in their own special way. Here are a couple of my favorite “breakfasts of champions” that include cinnamon roll goodness at our favorite Disney parks.
First off, we’ll start in Walt Disney World at Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery:
Here, you can find one of Disney World’s most beloved treats, the Main Street Bakery cinnamon roll. You can find this monstrous pastry (seriously — it’s giant — consider sharing) at the end of the bakery line, where they’ll scoop the thing onto a plate and then — this is the best part — add another scoop of melt-y, cinnamon-y frosting on top!!! I couldn’t believe it when I first saw that. I love when Disney doesn’t short me on extravagance.
I am delighted to bring you this guest review from veteran Disney World Moms Panelist Erin Foster of a recent visit to the Boardwalk Candy Palace on Main Street in Disneyland Resort Paris. Take it away, Erin!
Just like on Main Street in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, there is a candy shop prominently located on the right side of Main Street at Disneyland Paris: the Boardwalk Candy Palace. [Read more…]
One of the shops you can find on just about every “Main Street USA” in the world is an ice cream parlor, and the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in the Magic Kingdom is one of the best.
Many of us have a magical memory that begins with being lured into the parlor by that delicious (and occasionally piped in) smell of fresh waffle cones! Located at the end of Main Street, just before the castle hub and right next to the Plaza Restaurant, the Ice Cream Parlor is the perfect place to get dessert after a hot dog at Casey’s Corner!
Offering ice cream cones (Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, and [Read more…]
