If you’re preparing to set sail on the Disney Fantasy, you need to know that a brand new sweet shop recently opened on board Disney Cruise Line’s youngest ship!
Y’all! Free Pastry Alert! Free Pastry Alert! (Note to self: make “Free Pastry Alert” a thing.)
If you’re a fan of Amorette’s Patisserie (or been jonesing to give it a try!), this is a fun way to get not only a great souvenir but also a spectacular pastry! We’re not sure how long this will be in effect, but at present, you can get a free Amorette’s pastry(!) with the purchase of a caricature!
If the only thing better than a sundae is a sundae in a cool vessel (think: Kitchen Sink, Mickey’s Pants), then the only thing better than a sundae in a cool vessel is a sundae in a cool vessel on a Disney Cruise!
The Disney Dream, which went into ‘dry dock’ for some upgrades and alterations in 2015, is the (floating) place to go for Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats. And we don’t know about you, but anywhere with the words “sweets” and “treats” in the name is basically our favorite place.
In the ever-evolving, super-fun world of Disney Parks Glowcubes (that’s a thing, trust us), we’ve found the holy grail. And you don’t even need to go on a quest to get one (just take a boat or a bus to Hollywood Studios)!!
Introducing, the Brown Derby Hat Glowcube. I mean, C’MON, guys! It’s a TEENY DERBY HAT!
Look how stinking adorable that thing is. And it’s a glowcube! Whoever came up with this idea deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — the Disney version AND the real one.
You can snag one for yourself at the Brown Derby Lounge (which is restaurant-adjacent). It comes automatically in the Derby Cocktail. [Read more…]
Time for another fun tour of the awesomeness that is Epcot’s World Showcase! I like shopping there almost as much as riding Soarin’! Today, we’re checking out more fun finds at one of my favorite stops on the trip around the World — the Germany Pavilion.
Limited Edition Beer Steins
As I headed back through the shops in Germany, I didn’t have to go very far before I found two different limited edition Disney and Epcot Beer Steins.
Resplendent in the colors of the German flag, the first stein depicts Disney characters against the background of the Germany Pavilion itself!
The design includes Mickey, Donald, and Goofy all dressed in lederhosen and playing instruments. The image is straight out of Oktoberfest!
Check out Donald’s cheeks! I didn’t know ducks HAD cheeks.
The second stein features [Read more…]
Happy 20th anniversary to Disneyland Paris! Just in time for happy hour, and courtesy of Maxime Bogaert with Designing Disney, we’ve been given a unique look at a special wine commemorating this celebration. Take it away, Maxime!
At the occasion of its twentieth anniversary, Disneyland Paris has launched a special “20th Anniversary Cuvée”.
The Merlot Red, Chardonnay White, and Grenache Rosé wines are served in the resort’s bars and restaurants. But guests can also purchase a bottle at the hotel shops and take it home as a souvenir (available at [Read more…]
The DFB Mini-Guide to Epcot Snacks e-book is our newest Disney dining guide! No matter how many days you get to spend noshing around this park, you’ll have to choose from countless unique treats; and this 180-page book is guaranteed to help you make those choices!
In the e-book, we feature a few of the most intriguing chocolate treats we’ve ever seen, and we wanted to share just a few of them here with you! As you tour the national treasures around the World Showcase lagoon, you’ll be tempted to try all kinds of international yumminess:
These chocolates found in the Mexico Pavilion have a surprise center spiked with Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila.
You’re looking at the perfect chocolate bon bon snack, take-home souvenir, and/or gift for your boss that gave you the time off to travel.
Over in Germany, you’ll find these clever Brandy-filled chocolates. Shaped like little Brandy bottles and covered in [Read more…]
Raglan Road Irish Pub
Downtown Disney’s Raglan Road has announced Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day events. There also new gluten-free items on the menu and a fun, professional photo opportunity!
Gluten Free Eats
Raglan Road has added gluten-free dishes to their menu including Scallops, Fish & Chips, and Calamari & Pasta. To create a light and crisp batter that is also delicious, the culinary team devised a gluten fee batter mix made with Champagne and garbanzo flour!
Raglan Road invites all guests with a special diet to talk to a server about menu items that are available for modification to meet various nutritional needs.
Halloween treats continue to materialize around Walt Disney World in preparation for the fun this Fall. We reported on a few a couple of weeks ago, and Heather showcased some in Disneyland on Thursday; but there are even more to enjoy during this spooky season!
Main Street Bakery
New for this year’s Halloween season are a chocolate-covered Mummy Cookie and a Graveyard Cupcake.
The Mummy Cookie is actually a sugar cookie, though it looks like gingerbread at first glance due to the shape. It’s milk chocolate covered, then “wrapped” with [Read more…]
Departing the Happiest Place on Earth is never easy. It’s a bummer having to return to reality. To lessen the pain, many guests like to stock up on favorite snacks before the journey home. I’m partial to the chocolate covered pretzels. These sweet treats make the wait at the airport, flight or car ride less agonizing.
Tips and Tricks For Bringing Snacks Home
Some guests pack food for the plane or car trip home. These munchies are handy for long flights and/or layovers. Others bring them home as gifts for the pet-sitter, teacher, class and/or as a treat to savor just a few more minutes of Disney magic.
