Welcome to the worlds of Tomorrow, Yesterday, and Fantasy — Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! We’re bringing you What’s New in the ol’ MK — from Spring Break week, y’all!
Hello there! We’re back with another DFB Video, and today we’re taking you on a new Food Tour in Disney World. Our destination? Adventureland in Magic Kingdom!
Aah, Adventureland! It’s where we go to seek mystery, intrigue, and… Dole Whip! But you’ll find much more than the signature Pineapple Soft Serve in Adventureland, which is home to another beloved cold citrus treat. And with the addition of the Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen in late 2015 (Happy Second Birthday, Skipper Canteen!), Adventureland has its own table service restaurant as well. But that’s not all, so today we’re taking you to ALL the food stops in Adventureland! [Read more…]
Ho, ho, ho, it’s here! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is here! And I went on the very first night so I could give you the scoop on all the holiday bites and sips!
The Magic Kingdom was bedecked in her absolute finest, Cinderella Castle was positively glowing, and there was more than enough merriment to go around!
TOMORROW is the very first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for the 2017 Holiday Season at Magic Kingdom!
Packed with special entertainment, festive character greetings, the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, the Holiday Wishes Fireworks Spectacular, access to Magic Kingdom attractions, and all sorts of yuletide treats and cheer, this extra ticketed event runs on select nights through December 22, 2017. (Check out all the details — from dates to pricing — here!)
Churros! Cookies and Cream! Chocolate Sauce!
Now that we have your attention, we really think you need to know that Tortuga Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland is now serving Cookies ‘n Cream Churros!
Tortuga Tavern is a seasonally open spot, but even with a limited run — and, quite often, a limited menu — they can still churn out some surprises. Now that Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe has taken over the Mexican food offerings that used to be available at Tortuga Tavern before its brief turn as a BBQ spot, the Tavern now features selections like Turkey Legs and Hot Dogs, which you can also find at other locations in the park.
But the Cookies ‘n Cream Churros? These are all-new, and can only be found at Tortuga Tavern!
That’s right! Tortuga Tavern has traded Cookies ‘n Cream Gelato for Cookies ‘n Cream Churros!
Your serving of warm, chocolatey, churro goodness is actually a plate of eight mini churros (similar in serving style to the Churros you’ll find at Pecos Bill’s). They come with a pre-packaged container of chocolate sauce, in case you need even more chocolate.
Which, of course, YOU TOTALLY DO.
The cream comes in the center of the churro bites, and it makes them a bit more dense in the center than your typical Churro. But the chocolate and cream flavor is terrific (straight up Oreo, really), and the outside texture still offers that slightly crunchy churro crisp.
We aren’t sure how long guests can expect to see these on the menu, since the one thing constant at Tortuga Tavern is change. But — just like the other parks — Magic Kingdom is getting ready for the Holiday crowds, so hopefully these will stick around for the duration of the season!
What’s your favorite iteration of the Churro? Tell us about it so we can crave them even more than usual!
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of RANKING Magic Kingdom restaurants!
With so many new and classic Magic Kingdom restaurants to choose from, it can be nearly impossible to know what’s what! That’s why we’re here to help! We’re reviewing all the greats (and the not so greats) in this video and ranking the Magic Kingdom restaurants best to worst.
We’ve been spending a lot of time — like, A LOT — at Animal Kingdom lately. No real surprise there, as it’s home to the brand new land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR. But while entire new lands are always the biggest news, that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening all over the World.
So we thought we’d take a little trip to the Magic Kingdom today!
Check it out! All the cool, refreshing flavor of Dole Whip and pineapple juice in a see-through plastic skull. And it can all be yours for $9.49. [Read more…]
It’s time for a very MERRY CHRISTMAS with Mickey at his own Very Merry Christmas Party!!
He’s throwing this festive bash on select nights at through December 22nd, and it’s one of my absolute favorite Magic Kingdom events EVER. I get excited just driving in and seeing the inflatable snow Mickey and Minnie over the park’s entrance gate and getting my Party wristband! [Read more…]
