HOORAY!!! Loaded Mickey-Shaped Waffles are BACK ON THE MENU at Roaring Fork in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge…
The holiday season has arrived at Walt Disney World! How do we know? The Magic Kingdom is decorated for Christmas. Flurry of Fun is starting at Hollywood Studios. Adorable snowman and gingerbread man drink accessories are popping up at Animal Kingdom.
Annnnd… Cinnamon Glazed Almonds and Cinnamon Glazed Pecans are available at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
These addictive, fan-favorite Cinnamon Glazed Nuts are available in the parks throughout the year, but they make a special appearance at Wilderness Lodge for the holidays.
We just showed off a few fun Halloween and fall-time treats unique to Walt Disney World a few days ago, and reviewed that yummy cinnamon pumpkin cupcake in Animal Kingdom as well! Now we’re headed over to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge to tackle another Halloween-y sweet treat — the Poison Apple Cupcake!
Let me just remind everyone that accepting a poison apple from some mean, scary witch in the forest is a bad idea. Really, a terrible one. Snow White taught us all a valuable lesson. But, accepting a poison apple cupcake from the lively cast members at Roaring Fork in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, well, that’s a completely different story. Spoiler alert: It’s a really good idea. And a delicious one, too.
We LOOOOVE Wilderness Lodge. It’s like walking into a fall/winter day in a National Park Lodge every time I’m there…which is a nice mind trick when it’s still. so. freaking. hot. in Florida. Throw a Halloween-themed cupcake into the mix, and I’m game.
In case you needed another reason to visit Roaring Fork at Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge…
… we’ve got one! It’s the Oktoberfest Cupcake! This chocolate cupcake is complete with Guinness ganache (!!!) and topped with cinnamon frosting, then garnished with chocolate-dipped pretzels and candy pearls for a sweet-and-salty treat. [Read more…]
Wow! They have been busy at Wilderness Lodge’s Roaring Fork in Disney World!
We collected a whole round of updates for you, which will be coming soon to the blog. But first we’ve gotta share our favorite new item!
This Sunday, April 22, 2018, will be a BIG day in Disney World! Not only is it the 20th Anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but it’s also — of course! — Earth Day!
But let’s say your Earth Day plans involve visiting Disney Springs instead, or perhaps a Disney World Resort or two? Well, Disney’s got your covered with specialty snacks in several other spots, too! Now through Sunday, you’ll find Earth Day Cupcakes at Wilderness Lodge and the Yacht & Beach Club.
Roaring Fork is your Wilderness Lodge spot for a chocolate cupcake filled with cookies and cream, topped with vanilla buttercream, cookies and cream crumble, chocolate rocks, and an edible garden!
Happy New Year, Disney food friends! We’re thrilled to show a few new things we found over at the Wilderness Lodge. But first: that lobby! That TREE! It’s truly spectacular and worth a visit even if you’re not staying at the resort!
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 Monday! We’re back in Walt Disney World today, bringing you another tasty DFB Video. This time, we’re checking out all that’s awesome about the newly refurbished Roaring Fork at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!
Roaring Fork has been a longtime favorite for guests staying at Wilderness Lodge — or even folks who stay elsewhere and trek over to take advantage of the counter service spot’s specialties.
Unfortunately, favorites like Mickey Waffles with Specialty Toppings are no longer available. Still, we found plenty to love on the menu reboot, both for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. [Read more…]
It’s good to see you again, Roaring Fork!
Roaring Fork is the primary Counter Service restaurant at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Over the past several months, the entire resort has been undergoing several refurbishments, and these changes have certainly included some of the dining options at the Lodge.
For instance, this past February brought the addition of Geyser Point Bar & Grill — a hybrid outdoor lounge and Counter Service location. The opening of Geyser Point coincided with the temporary closure of Roaring Fork for a renovation of its own.
And even though Geyser Point has been a terrific addition to Wilderness Lodge, we have missed Roaring Fork. As home to everything from Specialty Waffles in the morning to some of our favorite cupcakes anywhere — all served up in the Lodge’s uniquely beautiful rustic setting — Roaring Fork has long held a special place in our hearts. And we know we’re not the only ones who feel that way.
So, I’m sure some of you are as anxious as I am to see what’s new and what’s remained the same (did the Waffles make the cut?!?) at Roaring Fork. Let’s not waste any more time checking it out!
Before the refurbishment, there were a few words you could always use to describe Roaring Fork. Among them were “rustic” and even “cozy.” [Read more…]
