Review: Lemon Meringue and German Chocolate Seasonal Cupcake Flavors at Sprinkles in Disney Springs

I was in Walt Disney World recently for a quick visit.

And even though it was a super short visit, mostly due to the opening of the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, I HAD to head over to Disney Springs. But — and I know you totally saw this coming! — my first stop was Sprinkles!

I’ve made no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of Sprinkles. So it’s only natural that Sprinkles + Disney equals Dream Come True territory for me.

I love all of their treats — Cupcakes, Cookies, Ice Cream, you name it. And who can resist a Cupcake ATM for your After Hours Cupcake neeeeeeeds??

But today, I’m checking out their Seasonal Cupcake Flavors. And if they look good to you, hightail it over to Sprinkles and get ‘em before they’re gone!

(Also, I apologize in advance for all the upcoming Sprinkles posts here on DFB.)

Let’s kick off the party with the Lemon Meringue Cupcake.

It’s high temps and good times in Walt Disney World this summer season! We’re spotting plenty of frosty summer sips to help you beat the heat, along with all sorts of new restaurants to stop in and take an air-conditioned breather.

And if we’re talking about new restaurants, there’s only one place to start this round of What’s New, and that’s…

Disney Springs

Latest Additions

I know — it’s as though the openings are never-ending at Disney Springs! The Grand Opening Summer Celebration is ON for this dining, shopping, and entertainment district!

It was an exciting week for foodies at Walt Disney World as we celebrated the opening of several new restaurants and kiosks in Disney Springs including D-Luxe Burger, Sprinkles, YeSake, and the Daily Poutine. We did a lot of eating this week and it was so worth it!

Also, have you seen the new sweepstakes from Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea? You can win a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort as part of the 2nd Annual Magic in Your Mug Sweepstakes!

First Look and Review! Sprinkles Cupcakes in Disney Springs Town Center

SPRINKLES IS HERE!!!

Seeing as we’re HUGE cupcake fans here at the DFB, this latest Disney Springs opening is a definite cause for celebration! And if you love cupcakes as much as we do, then this is great news for you, too, since Sprinkles was designated the “world’s first cupcake bakery” by the Food Network (the first location opened in Beverly Hills in 2005).

Of course, maybe you’ve already paid a visit to Sprinkles, which has locations in Dallas, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Nashville, among others. (Even though I prefer my beloved Magnolia cupcakes in the Village, I, myself, am intimately familiar with Sprinkles’ order-ahead policy and the employees at my local Sprinkles Cupcakes store pretty much know me by name.)

You may have tried one of the signature cupcakes, a house-made cookie, or some slow-churned ice cream (some locations carry all three, though some offer solely cupcakes). Maybe you’ve even zipped by one and grabbed a cupcake from one of the famous Cupcake ATMs.

But you’ve never been able to have one at Disney World… until NOW!

Magic Kingdom

A recent visit to the Magic Kingdom revealed changes and additions — both big and small — to Counter Service spots all over the park.

Greetings from Magic Kingdom!
