Check out all the latest Disney Food News — even the stuff we don’t mention in posts on the blog! — on our Disney Food News Pin Board, including menu updates, restaurant closures, special events, and more! We’ve got all the latest for you, so check it out before you go. [Read more…]
Starting today, when the My Disney Experience app is updated, guests will be able to use their Disney Dining Plan credits to pay for Counter Service meals and snacks that they’ve ordered using Mobile Order! [Read more…]
Editor’s Note: Contempo Cafe has been removed from Disney’s system as a mobile order option. That said, since they went to the trouble to load all of the code into their system, we’re guessing it will be an option soon. Stay tuned.
Mobile Order — a process available via the My Disney Experience app, which gives guests the chance to bypass the register lines in participating restaurants by ordering and paying for their food in advance, has been available in select Counter Service spots since May 2017. The service has been limited, however, to locations in all four parks and Disney Springs.
But this weekend, the service made its debut in a Disney World Resort: The Contemporary Resort’s Contempo Cafe!
Happy New Year!
There’s no denying that 2017 has been a year of changes, some good and some not-so-good. But when it comes to Disney food news, we have to say this year has been FULL of updates!
And as we get ready to ring in the New Year with party hats, noisemakers, and a toast, we’re taking a few minutes to review some of the biggest Disney Food News stories of 2017!
Let’s go! [Read more…]
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Walt Disney World! The season is in full swing with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, and the Flurry of Fun at Hollywood Studios.
Each of these events are known for offering extras treats and goodies… but guess what?!? Counter Service locations all over Disney World are getting in on the extra food fun!! Check out these brand new offerings, which we found on Mobile Order via the My Disney Experience app!
In fact, ALL of these particular seasonal offerings can be found via Mobile Order, so if you’re not familiar with how it works, you’ll want to read all about Mobile Order here!!
Now, hold onto your Santa Hats, because there is LOTS to share!!
Mighty Casey himself is getting in the holiday mood! At Casey’s Corner, special holiday items include the Hot Diggity Holiday Dog available in regular or footlong size.
So you know I was ALL OVER IT when I got into the Magic Kingdom for the very first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the year!
Here’s the deal: The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland serves a variety of pretzels, including classic Mickey Soft Pretzels and flavor varieties like the Pepper Jack (Jalapeno Cheese) Stuffed Pretzel. And until last week, it was one of the only spots that carried the Sweet Cream Cheese-Stuffed Pretzel.
And that’s the thing with these Stuffed Pretzels: they tend to come and go without any rhyme or reason. So that’s why you gotta HOP ON IT when you see one, because you never know how long they’re going to stay on any menu in Disney World.
So that’s exactly what I did with the new Warm Salted Caramel-Stuffed Pretzel!
Now, you know I love me some pretzels. So much so, in fact, that this isn’t even my first post about pretzels THIS WEEK. If you joined me earlier, you may know I highly recommend purchasing a side of chocolate sauce to go with your Mickey Soft Pretzel. But in the case of the Warm Salted Caramel-Stuffed Pretzel?
It ALREADY COMES WITH THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE.
YES!! Just consider all the elements at play here. First, you’ve got the saltiness of the pretzel. THEN you’ve got the golden sweet-and-salty buttery taste of the caramel. And THEN you’ve got the rich sweetness of the chocolate sauce.
And we’re still not done, because you’ve ALSO got that slight hint of crunch from the outer brown pretzel shell, contrasted by doughy center and the gooey caramel and chocolate.
Salty. Sweet. A bit of Crunch. The GOOEY Factor. If there’s anything missing here, I sure can’t think of it. At $4.79, this thing is a snack steal.
I know we’re already into the holiday swing of things here in Disney World, but it IS still November — and therefore technically still fall. And this Caramel Pretzel is perfect for the current season….even though I’m hoping it sticks around even longer!
Will you be grabbing a Warm Salted Caramel-Stuffed Pretzel if it’s available on your next visit to the Magic Kingdom? Please let us know with a comment!
Well, well, well… guess what just popped up on The Lunching Pad’s menu?
A Salted Caramel Warm Stuffed Pretzel, that’s what!
You see, I was perusing The Lunching Pads’ menu on the Mobile Order portion of the My Disney Experience app. Why? Because rumor has it that a Secret Menu item will be coming to an “Out of This World” location in Magic Kingdom, and it will ONLY appear on the Mobile Order menu. The phrase “Out of This World” implies the new item will be available at one of the two restaurants in Tomorrowland that utilize Mobile Order: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe and The Lunching Pad.
So! Now you know why I was on the app, even though I wasn’t in the park.
But it paid to check it out anyway, because that’s how I stumbled on the brand new Salted Caramel Warm Stuffed Pretzel at The Lunching Pad, listed right above the Pepper Jack Warm Stuffed Pretzel and the Sweet Cream Cheese Warm Stuffed Pretzel!
It’s October in Magic Kingdom, and it’s a wonderful time to be here!
As the temps cool down (in the evenings, anyway) and the festive decorations go up, there’s even more to enjoy, like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Fall Finale of Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire!
What better way to say “I Was There” than with the…
New Starbucks “You Are Here” Mug
As it is with the other three Disney World parks, Magic Kingdom has its own newly redesigned Starbucks “You Are Here” Mug at the Main Street Bakery! (Yes. You’re Welcome. Now you have to buy all of the new ones, too.)
