Dining in Disneyland: Valentine’s Day Treats at Marceline’s

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Marceline’s in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District has some season-specific treats that taste just as yummy as they look!

In addition to the “standard” holiday treats that return every year, and some basic staples of Marceline’s that I thought were “Valentine Appropriate,” I came across these new and quite beautiful “rose” like cupcakes — chocolate cupcakes with a giant dollop of vanilla frosting in the shape of a pretty flower.

“The Best Thing I Ever Ate in Disney!”: Snacks and Drinks

We’ve recently started a fun new series based on the Food Network’s (very cool) show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Due to some keen suggestions from readers, we’re splitting our series up into different sections: breakfast, appetizers & side dishes, snacks & drinks, entrees (lunch & dinner), and desserts.

Today, we’re taking a look at Snacks & Drinks! I’ve done my favorite brand of informal polling (i.e. posted questions on twitter and facebook ;) ) to find out others’ experiences of the “Best Thing They Ever Ate” — snacks and drinks style — in Disney parks and resorts. To be sure, the answers sounded veeeery similar to our recent post about the Best Value for your Snack Credits, but we had a few different ideas as well!


Who doesn’t indulge a bit with some of the great snacks available on a trip to Disney? Here are a few of the favorites, as determined by Disney Food Blog readers:
