Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort has quickly earned a reputation for being a hub of creative churros — we’re talking Cocoa Churros and so many more. But these portable, cinnamon-sugar sticks of fried dough deliciousness aren’t the only classic Disneyland snack to get the Pixar treatment!
We’re always on the look out for new sweet treats in the Walt Disney World parks — and this time, we’ve found two tasty winners in the Magic Kingdom! The best part is, if you’re a long-time Disney fan or Disney WORLD fan, these might even pull at your heartstrings a little bit!
First up, Pinocchio Village Haus is putting the sweet in sweet treat with Italian Cream Cake.
Depending on where you are in the country, school has been back in session for at least a week. Pumpkin Spiced beverages are up for grabs everywhere, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is ON.
Which means it’s time to say…. Happy Fall, Y’all! And when it comes to autumn in Disney World, there’s so much to see and do… and EAT!
What’s more refreshing and cooling than a slushy on a crazy hot Florida or southern California day? Uh, nothing. The answer is nothing.
Which is why we love Goofy’s Glaciers. These sweet and tart slushies come in several Goofy-worthy flavors like strawberry, blue raspberry, passion mango, and lemonade. And with flavors like these, it’s only natural that a good Disney food fan would combine them into something even awesome-r.
Enter our DiningInDisney pal Heather Sievers who, as always, has this plan on lock. In fact, she gave this slushie combo a swirl back in May!
If you have fond memories of strolling through your favorite Disney World Park as a youngster (or as a not-so-youngster!), clutching a plastic tube full of flavored sweet and/or sour sugar, you might be a Goofy’s Powdered Candy fan.
While powdered candy is by no means new to Disney World (we first chatted about this sugary indulgence years ago), the current incarnation of the treat is somewhat updated. You see, around a year ago, Goofy’s Powdered Candy suddenly vanished from merchandise spots where it had been a staple for ages: place like the Main Street Confectionery, Epcot’s Mouse Gear, and the like.
And then — just as suddenly — it came back on the scene to several of its previous locations (though not all… yet). Goofy’s Powdered Candy even showed up in places it hadn’t been seen before, like Zuri’s Sweets Shop in Animal Kingdom. BOOM! [Read more…]
You’re gonna hear us saying this a lot over the next several months: there’s a TON of stuff going on in the Disney food world at Animal Kingdom.
First we’ve got quality bites at Tiffins and Nomad Lounge. Second we will soon have two brand new dining options in Pandora — The World of AVATAR: Pongu Pongu and Satu’li Canteen. And third, old standbys like Yak and Yeti and Flame Tree Barbecue are still killin’ the food game. Animal Kingdom has stepped up the food game yet again.
But should you find yourself way over in Dinoland digging on something sweet and indulgent, adventure your way right over to Restaurantosaurus. It’s just past the spinning triceratops and across the way from the dig site. You can’t miss it.
While I LOVE Restaurantosaurus, we have had a bit of a hit or miss relationship with Animal Kingdom’s desserts-in-a-glass, and we’re happy to see them being replaced by better options. The Warm Turtle Brownie we tried recently was a big hit! And since we’re always open to try new things, on this visit we ordered the Strawberry Cheesecake.
Let’s just start by saying this ain’t a dessert in a glass. Look at that crust! It’s all graham crackers and buttery-ness! It’s just the right thickness to add texture without overwhelming the contents of its shell.
Good news, chocolate lovers! Mood Chocolate boxes have made a triumphant return to Disney World (you can read about their previous appearance here)! And they feature fun new packaging and exciting new flavors.
Believe it or not, there are even more options than those pictured above, but we predict the Star Wars versions will be a big hit! On this trip, we gave the Milk Chocolate Cake Batter Truffles a try.
Such cheerful packaging with that Cutie Pie Minnie! To get a sneak peek of what’s in the box, check out the images on the side of the box. [Read more…]
We’re big fans of the Dole Whip, one of the classic snacks that many people can’t live without when they head to a Disney theme park!
This creamy, chilly treat usually comes in a pineapple flavor, and guests have the option of combining the sweet/tart treat with pineapple juice to make a float!
What if We Invented a New Flavor!
While I’m sure that many of us love the classic pineapple flavor, we got to thinking…what flavor would you invent if you had the chance? Currently the company who makes the dole whip mix offers vanilla, chocolate, orange, strawberry, raspberry, mango, and pineapple.
Do you think Disney should serve more of these flavors? Or are there other flavors you’d add to the list in your “fantasy land?”
My pick would be a red-velvet-and-cream-cheese-frosting flavored Dole Whip…or a lemon-curd-and-blueberry flavored Dole Whip! But I also love some of the ideas from the Disney Food Blog facebook fans below — especially the tequila-based ones!
Take a look at what was suggested by our readers, then let us know YOUR picks in the comments section below! Maybe we’ll invent a whole new dessert!
We got quite a few responses when we posted this question over on Facebook! Here are a few of our favorites…
