We’re back with What’s New at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week, and it includes several menu changes, tons of cool merchandise, and a peek at current Toy Story Land and Skyliner construction (read more about the Disney World Skyliner here!)! Then, we’re skipping over to Art of Animation and Pop Century for a quick look at What’s New at the resorts! So put on your fancy pants, and let’s get our glamour on!
Happy Sunday and happy long weekend! As we mark a time of remembrance this Memorial Day weekend, we also hope you’re planning some celebrations with family and friends as summer is officially starting.

Lovers of Disney Cupcakes — this one’s for you!
I just returned home from a family trip to Walt Disney World, and you better believe I had to check out all the new eats in the pastry case at the Contempo Cafe.
This counter service location, conveniently located on the Magic Kingdom Resort Monrail loop at the Contemporary Resort, takes extra care to keep things fresh and new. And that’s especially true when it comes to cupcakes. We loved the recent Star Wars Cupcake we enjoyed there.
During my most recent visit, I came away with two fun new cupcakes to share with you — the first one is up today!

It’s super cute, right? Piped Pink Buttercream swirls around the cake’s crown, and the Green Sprinkles give that perfect color contrast that announces the theme here.
I also love the Chocolate Chips that mimic watermelon seeds, and the White Chocolate disk on top lends a Contemporary flair. (Get it? ;-D) [Read more…]
