The Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World seems like it might be on a quest to constantly out-do itself.
Depending on where you are in the country, school has been back in session for at least a week. Pumpkin Spiced beverages are up for grabs everywhere, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is ON.
Which means it’s time to say…. Happy Fall, Y’all! And when it comes to autumn in Disney World, there’s so much to see and do… and EAT!
Our Disneyland Correspondent Heather Sievers (you know her because she’s always Dining in Disneyland — and dining so well!) is more than up to the task of checking out new goodies. And this one happens to be on BOTH coasts right now!

The bold, retro look of the font is fun and evokes the adventure of international travel — perfect! And don’t you love the skyline at the bottom, which highlights the icons of the World Showcase Pavilions?
The other motif we see repeated is an homage to beer! Brews Around the World promises to be a popular choice among guests who enjoy trying all the brewskies available at the Marketplace Booths. Equally handsome, the rustic logo channels a painted wooden plaque look. It also features the landmarks of World Showcase.
