Just when you think an ice cream sundae from Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop can’t get any better, the clever minds behind Disney Springs’ iconic shop throw in some totally rad accessories!
Every once in a while you’ve gotta go back to the classics.
Let’s head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to Oasis Canteen!
You’ll find this unassuming little kiosk in the back of Studios, near the Indiana Jones attraction.
Ice cream treats are the norm for this place. But at least once in the past, they took us by surprise when they offered a selection of savory options. That was mostly during a busy season when more eats were needed around the park, and since then ice cream and classic treats have returned.
In fact, the menu has changed very little from long ago visits — except that the prices have gone up. There are also a couple of grown up floats to try here — both root beer and dreamsicle versions — that include Stoli Vanilla vodka.
With all the changes taking place at DHS, who knows what will come next to Oasis? So let’s enjoy a favorite classic while we can! It’s funnel cake time. [Read more…]
We love seeing all the beautiful and delicious ways that L’Artisan des Glaces in Epcot’s France Pavilion celebrates the changing seasons!

And starting TODAY, they’re offering another Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich to entice us in for a visit.
Strawberries and Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich
If you don’t call Florida home, then you may not be aware that January ushers in a very important and exciting time: it’s the beginning of Florida Strawberry Season!
You’ll find bumper crops of strawberries in Florida markets this time of year. And if you visit Disney World from January to May, you’ll probably notice lots of strawberries on the menus in your favorite restaurants.
But surely, L’Artisan des Glaces is offering one of the most enticing examples of a strawberry special in all the World — the Strawberries and Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich.
To make the sweet little treat, they layer scoops of the housemade Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberry Sorbet between layers of pink Strawberry Macarons. Looks awesome, right?
If you love strawberries as much as we do, I’m pretty sure you’re going to love this latest L’Artisan des Glaces seasonal creation.
But hurry — they’re [Read more…]

Some dishes are the stuff of Disney legends.
1900 Park Fare
The same certainly goes for 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
While our experiences here have been varied, many readers love the place! And one dish I agree is outstanding is the cold Strawberry Soup.
Creamy, sweet, and beautifully bright pink, the soup beckons to you, and you just know you must try it. Of course, it’s hard to describe this. I’m usually not a fan of cold soup, but I couldn’t get enough of this one!
The enormous bowl of bright red strawberries, to be used as a garnish, sweetens the deal.
The first time I tried the soup, I knew that [Read more…]
