Disney California Adventure Park’s Paradise Garden Grill is always game for a food celebration, and Halloween Time is no exception! As was the case for Pixar Fest and last year’s Dia de los Muertos, the menu here is an ode to Coco and features flavors from south of the border!
Welcome to Halloween Time at the Grand Californian Hotel, where the lobby’s treat cart is now listed as an official Disneyland Resort dining locale! It’s called the Grand Californian Hotel Holiday Cart, and right now, it’s packed with spooky, cute eats!
Fun eats include a Halloween Mickey Whoopie Pie, a Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Stick Trio, and a Halloween Cookie Box!
Hungry Bear Restaurant at Disneyland Resort is offering a sweet treat for Halloween Time — and it combines churros and cereal! Here’s the Churro Bites Cereal Sundae!
If that sounds like an awesome combination of words, imagine how great it is in reality! These are fruity-cereal dusted churro bites, sugary glaze, a scoop of fruity ice cream, some raspberry sauce, and a smattering of fruity cereal! [Read more…]
One of the greatest attributes of Walt Disney World is its location because even when the rest of the country is ensconced in winter, central Florida is typically still warm (and in the summer it’s downright tropical!). And you know what that means: lots of frozen treats to eat and drink!
We’ve had ’em all — and there are some old favorites and some NEW options we’re pretty sure you’re going to want to get your hot little hands on!
Here we share Five Frozen Treats You Can’t Miss at the Magic Kingdom!
Mint Julep Lemonade Slushy
First up, as you make your way down Main Street, U.S.A., pop into Casey’s Corner. It’s there you can find the Mint Julep Lemonade Slushy! This family-friendly drink is a terrific mixture of sweet and sour — with that refreshing slushy texture and temperature!
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival begins NEXT WEEK, and it continues until November 12, 2018. That’s 75 days of food, wine, demonstrations, celebrity chefs, special events, seminars, etc., etc.
Yeah, it’s a lot. And whether you’re a Food and Wine pro or a newbie, navigating this massive (and massively popular!) Festival can be a little overwhelming. That’s where your old pals at the DFB come in! We’ve accumulated a lot of experience in our LOOONG relationship with Food and Wine — and we’ve assembled all of that experience in one place: the DFB Guide to the 2018 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!
Here are some of the most popular FAQs from DFB readers and Food and Wine visitors — with answers direct from the DFB Guide!
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is a fabulous opportunity to eat lots of great food and to drink lots of great drinks. And while we know we’ll be putting some of our returning favorites on our must-eat list — we also make a second list: New Stuff We Can’t Wait to Try! (Yeah, we’re all about lists here at DFB!)
And this is that list — including a few items we got the chance to sample recently!
Guinness Baileys Shake – Ireland
The new Guinness Bailey’s Shake from the Ireland booth got us all kinds of excited when we saw it on the menu! We were expecting a frozen, creamy drink with a powerful hit of Guinness and Baileys — and that’s just what we got when we tried it during a preview! PLUS it comes with the glass! We can’t wait to try it again!
The Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar is brand new this year, and the offerings sound incredible! Mimosas include varieties like the Tropical Mimosa and the Madras Mimosa (which we have tried!), and there’s a tasty-sounding, kid-friendly drink called Frozen Apple Pie!
But aside from those intriguing drinks, the Mimosa Bar is also serving up pastries like an Almond Croissant and a Cheese Danish with Sweet Icing! One of each, please! [Read more…]
Sometimes the only way to make a Disney food even better than the original is to make it mini. We submit mini Mickey Waffles as irrefutable evidence.
And now Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland Resort’s Frontierland is providing another piece of proof for this theory.
Ready to see our favorite new “mini” option in Disneyland?!? Here they are!
The Animal Kingdom called out to us and we had to visit this week! We found so many new food items AND new merch that we had to make our regular “What’s New” into two posts! We’re tackling food first, of course!
Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Discovery Island New Menu Items
Creature Comforts (this park’s Starbucks location) is offering a new Strawberry Cake Pop that we think is smiling at us! It’s really delicious if you’re a strawberry fan!
Good news for coffee lovers out there who don’t want to stand in a Starbucks line for a cup of regular brewed coffee – the hot dog cart located near Pizzafari and Tiffins now has coffee available starting at park open and is typically available until around 1pm.
Nomad Lounge has some new menu items available – and these are included on their allergy-friendly menu. Items include:
- Accara: Black Eyed Pea Fritters
- Impossible Burger Sliders
- Truffle Poutine
The chefs at Tiffins have been busy! There is a new lunch tasting menu as well as other new items on their menu including Peaches and Cream appetizer, Crispy Corn Cake entree, and a Tiffins Dessert Trio. The Lunch Tasting Menu is served from 11:30 – 3:30 and is $35.00 per person. It includes choice of one appetizer and one entree OR choice of one entree and one dessert.

How cute are these! During our time in Disney Springs today we spotted these summer themed cakes and treats at Amorette’s Patisserie in Town Center at Disney Springs!
This Mickey Bar cake is a must-get!
Check out this appropriately flavored Peanut Butter and Jelly mini cake ready for a picnic!
We’ve seen Dole Whip donuts and Dole Whip with rum recently, but now it’s finally time for a new Dole Whip Cupcake!
This fun treat comes with sweet sauce in a pipette that you squeeze over the top of the cupcake. @belleoftheparks reports this tastes exactly like a Dole Whip!
Looks like the pipettes might become our next trend at Disney! This is our second pipette finding in the past few weeks — remember those Boozy Beignets at Scat Cats Lounge in Port Orleans French Quarter Resort!
Have you tried this cupcake? What do you think of the possible pipette trend? Share your comments below!
