Our Facebook Friend Lynda shared this photo of specialty Mardi Gras cupcakes from the French Market Restaurant in Disneyland. “Both Mardi Gras cupcakes were great. Front cupcake is Red Velvet. Back cupcake is Chocolate Raspberry. Break open the chocolate dome and you have a nice surprise of chocolate mousse.”

News! Phineas and Ferb Reusable Lunchbags at Subway Restaurants for a Limited Time

Dude. Kid heroes extraordinaire Phineas and Ferb (and, of course, P the P) are everywhere (ahem, Doofenslurper) in Epcot. And now you can find ‘em even closer to home!

I was excited about trying the new Perry sugar cookie and the Doofenslurper on my next trip to Epcot.

But if you can’t wait that long, check out your local Subway to find some cool P&F gear — and a healthy kids’ meal, too.

Just in time for Platypus Day on March 2, Subway and Disney have announced a partnership that will bring Phineas, Ferb, and Perry to reusable lunch bags.

The bag comes as part of the sandwich chain’s Fresh Fit for Kids meals, and includes a download code for a Phineas and Ferb episode, app, or song.

If you’re a fan of the show (or your kids are) head to Subway for the cute bags!

But do it soon — the promotion is tied into the new season premiere of the hit animated series and will only be around until [Read more…]

Fun Find: Phineas and Ferb Treats at Epcot (“The Doofenslurper!!”)

Several Epcot kiosks, including Promenade Refreshments where these came from, have some special offerings for Phineas and Ferb fans.

The three special items include an Agent P sugar cookie on a stick, a kids’ “Power Pack,” and the “Doofenslurper.”

The Power Pack, $7.99, includes an Uncrustables sandwich, carrot sticks, a Danimals yogurt, and a juice box, all served in a souvenir Agent P lunch box. This is a relatively healthy child’s lunch plus a great takeaway for one reasonable price.

But the thing I really wanted for me was the Doofenslurper, because how could you not want something called a Doofenslurper?

The Doofenslurper is frozen lemonade (more like a slushie) topped with a now ubiquitous fruity foam.

As for the actual consumable, the lemonade plus foam concoction tasted like [Read more…]
