(Miniature) Additions at the Confectionery

Found a couple of mini items at the Main Street Confectionery in Disney World today that I had to share!

Cookie Bites
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…]

Breakfasts of Champions: Cinnamon Rolls in Disney World and Disneyland

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.

Disney World

First off, we’ll start in Walt Disney World at Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery:

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.

Disneyland Paris: Boardwalk Candy Palace

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…]

Magic Kingdom’s Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

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.

Atmosphere
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…]
