Review: Mini Dessert Tarts at Pop Century’s Everything Pop Food Court

Greetings from Pop Culture Past… ‘cuz we’re back at Everything Pop Food Court at Pop Century Resort!

We JUST visited Landscape of Flavors in the Art of Animation Resort to try their new Miniature Whoopie Pies. I mention that because those unfamiliar with this area of Disney World may not know that it’s just a quick stroll over the bridge across Hourglass Lake to Pop Century. This is a huge boon for guests at either resort who have easy access to arguably two of the best food courts in Disney World. Hoping to try more exotic flavors? Hop on over to the Landscape. Craving comfort food served up with a side of quirkiness?  Take a stroll to Everything Pop!

Now typically, if I’m here for dessert, it’s because I’m craving the King Cupcake, which has earned a place of honor on my Disney Food Bucket List!

But on this visit, fresh from Art of Animation, I couldn’t help but notice that Everything Pop is hopping on the Mini Train, too. In this case, it’s an assortment of Mini Dessert Tarts up for grabs, so let’s “pop” in for bite!

Atmosphere

Everything POP Food Court certainly lives up to its name…

Spotted: New Food Items Available in Epcot’s Canada and UK Pavilions

One of my favorite activities in Walt Disney World is to wander around the World Showcase and check out what’s new.

While I always love old favorites, like Pocky and my beloved Fruit Gums, it’s definitely fun to stumble across a brand new display and get all excited about what I find. New or new-to-me — it’s all good!

Dueling Earths in the World Showcase

On a recent trip that just happened to coincide with the holidays, I found several fun new snack items that I wanted to show you. I’m thinking Picnic Around the World! Who’s with me?

Canada Pavilion

O, Canada! You can always surprise me.

We will keep dreaming of the day that you come into your own, but in the meantime, I’m going to grab some Covered Bridge Potato Chips and snack away. I’ll have one Ketchup-Flavored and one Sweet Potato, please! Oh, and a Montreal Steak Seasoning, too! (Ok. I’ll share a few.)

Chips from Epcot's Canada Pavilion

These are definitely going on our World Showcase picnic!

It is interesting to note that all of the snacks I found in the Canada Pavilion shops, such as chips and maple sugar candies, are pretty pricey. They’re especially expensive compared to the treats in other lands. Hmmm…

UK Pavilion

Being an obsessive tea drinker, I’m all about The Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion. But another great thing about this shop: you can find lots of different candies and snacks here as well.

On the wall across from the register, we found another entry into the potato chip category: Yorkshire Crisps. These would def satisfy my crunchy-salty craving right now.

First Look! Food Photos From Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe in Disney California Adventure

Update: Check out the discreet integration of Starbucks into Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe.

We’ve had a great time sharing sneak peeks of many of the new dining locations opening soon in Disney California Adventure! Be sure to check out the great menu options at Flo’s V-8 Cafe, Sally’s Cozy Cone Motel, Carthay Circle Restaurant, Trolley Treats, and Clarabelle’s Ice Cream!

And one more of the places on Buena Vista Street I am really looking forward to is the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe. Why? Because Disney California Adventure NEEDS a good counter service spot where one can grab a great sandwich and a STARBUCKS beverage

Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe

At a recent media preview I was able to check out some of the items that will be served at the Cafe, and it looks like there will be some pretty tasty options…

Menu

I got some great photos of the dishes that will be served here at the Fiddler. The first thing I noticed about the menu, though, was that the items appeared to be very similar to what is being served over in Disneyland at the Jolly Holiday Bakery

This is not a bad thing by any means; Jolly Holiday is fantastic! Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Fiddler, Fifer & Practical will be serving a wide variety eats:

  • Breakfast: Freshly baked pastries & cinnamon rolls, breakfast sandwiches and wraps
  • Lunch and Dinner: Hot and cold sandwiches, salads, and two daily soups

I don’t have the “official” names of the sandwiches pictured below, but some appear to be identical to [Read more…]
