Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another roundup of What’s New in Disney Springs.
We’ve got plenty of merch, food, and construction updates for ya, so let’s dive right on in!
Disney Springs Food Update
When is cake ever a BAD idea?? Amorette’s Patisserie is always a great first stop when you get to Disney Springs, especially since they have new Halloween cakes out for spooky season!
The Pumpkin Minnie Cake is a jack-o-latern full of your choice of chocolate or lemon chiffon cake, milk or white chocolate mousse, and orange or strawberry pate de fruit jelly!
(The eyelashes and bow are just TOO CUTE!!)
Pair Minnie with the Frankenstein Mickey Cake, each for $59!
We’re kinda digging the scar and bolts look for the Monster Mouse!
If you’re looking for a terrifying treat, snack on the Halloween Petit Cake for $18!
This one looks not only yummy but definitely spooky!
Our favorite Wookiee is even making an appearance in the bakery case with the NEW Chewbacca Cake!
Complete with chocolate chiffon cake, milk chocolate mousse, orange pate de fruit jelly, and lots of fur (don’t worry — it’s icing!), you can take home the co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon for $59.
Who’s up for a Texas-Chili Cheese Dog and Frozen Sweet Tea Lemonade?
Got a sweet tooth? Candy Cauldron has got you covered with their bakery case filled with Halloween treats!
We even spotted some Star Wars Rice Krispie Treats in-store! (That Porg is so cute, we want to buy one just to look at it!)
Dusted in silvery glitter…
… and sprinkled in candied pearls, the chocolate take on the fastest ship in the galaxy is a delicious dessert for $6.50! It should be available through September 7th.
We couldn’t help but want a little more chocolate, so we popped over to get the FREE chocolate square of the day at Ghirardelli! All that Milk Chocolate Fudge Caramel had us wanting seconds!
It’s finally here!! Orlando Magical Dining Month has made its way into Disney Springs. From August 23rd until September 30th, you can purchase a 3-course meal for $35 at participating restaurants to support local charities.
New to this year’s line-up, Jaleo has released its menu for the event!
Pick your appetizer, entrée, and dessert from their sizable list of options!
What do you think you’re going to munch on during Jaleo’s Orlando Magical Dining event??
With PSL season in full swing (thank goodness!), Joffrey’s hopping onto the sweet and spicy train with the Pumpkin Créme Brûlée Cold Brew Coffee for $4.09! You can even add an additional Pumpkin Pie or Caramel Flavor Shot for 60 cents more!
Sadly, this event was only around for Labor Day weekend, but we enjoyed drinks…
… and entertainment!
But, don’t worry! You can still grab one of the Pumpkin Cupcakes, just in time for fall.
The specially themed drinks at the Starbucks in Disney Springs make us want to try everything on the menu, especially since there are SO MANY new items out right now!
What better way is there to celebrate the opening of Galaxy’s Edge than with The Trooper Frappuccino from the Star Wars menu?? Or, maybe if you’re feeling a little blue about the end of summer (we definitely are), you can grab the Midsummers Ice Cream from the Summertime Sadness Specials!
You gotta trust the helpful baristas at Starbucks with their amazing drinks skills. That’s why everything on the Barista Favorites menu sounds delicious (we’re eyeing The Mad Tea Party, though)!
Need a sleek way to carry around your favorite drinks from Wine Bar George? Pick up the new Gun Metal Corkcicle! With its purchase of $30, you get a FREE Dole Whip Frozcato, Frosé, or Freaujolais (sounds like a win-win to us).
Disney Springs Construction Update
In case you missed it, Hurricane Dorian has caused some closures and cancellations in Walt Disney World. During our visit to Disney Springs, we noticed that the Aerophile had been lowered in preparation for the storm.
We also noticed that Curl, located in Disney Springs’ West Side, had closed. We’re not sure what will take its place but we’ll let you know as we learn more information!
The sign said “Something New Is Coming Soon”, so hopefully it won’t be long until we learn more details.
Bongos Cuban Cafe closed its doors as well, just as we expected it would.
“Something new” is coming here as well, so we’ll keep you posted as we learn more!
Disney Springs Merchandise Update
While most of us are getting ready for Halloween, Basin is all ready with some stocking-stuffer soaps for Christmas this year!
Give your loved ones a Christmas tree…
… a palm tree…
… a joyful ornament…
… and candy canes to celebrate the holiday season!
And, don’t forget to bring home your favorite mouse for Christmas with the Mickey Soaps!
Pair him with some red and green Christmas trees…
… black and red silhouettes (Mickey looks great in these colors honestly)…
… and green shades of pine!
Days of Christmas
Is it ever too early to start talking about Christmas? Days of Christmas doesn’t think so with the release of the Spaceship Earth and Skyliner Ornaments!
Since we’re less than a month out from the opening of the Skyliner Gondola System, it’s no surprise these little guys are making a high-flying debut in the store!
Take a trip across Disney World with your friends from Toy Story…
… The Haunted Mansion…
… and even Star Wars! Porgs and Chewbacca have our hearts.
Disney Style is feeling rotten to the core with the Disney Villains Collection, featuring the…
… Evil Queen Loungefly Backpack…
… and the Maleficent Loungefly Backpack! We previously spotted all of these items in Downtown Disney!
The Dress Shop
In The Dress Shop and Ever After Jewelry Co., we spotted The Haunted Mansion Anniversary Dooney & Bourke Collection, which we originally found in Magic Kingdom.
Which bag is your favorite from the collection?
The LEGO Store
In The LEGO Store, the new LEGO Disney Train and Station set is now available for $329. They also had a $800 Millennium Falcon!
If you download the app, the train can move around the track and make some cool sound effects!
We also spotted a LEGO Millennium Falcon, available for a cool $800!
In the NBA Store, we noticed that there were more basketballs for dribbling around the store.
We also saw that they only have three mannequins now, and they were on a smaller platform than before.
Star Wars Galactic Outpost and Star Wars Trading Post
Both Star Wars Galactic Outpost and Star Wars Trading Post had Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge “Landing” merchandise available. We’ve seen this merchandise before, but we were glad to see it available outside Batuu!
We especially love this Galaxy’s Edge patch…
…and this Star Wars MagicBand!
We can’t forget to mention these limited edition Galaxy’s Edge pins! You can grab each one for $15.99.
World of Disney
We also spotted a Galaxy’s Edge merchandise display in World of Disney! New to me girls jewelry line of princesses and Lion King friendship necklaces ($19.99).
While we were there, we noticed some super cute Disney Princess necklaces we hadn’t seen before…
…and some Timon and Pumbaa friendship necklaces ($19.99)!
Also in World of Disney, we found the ID holders with lanyards ($16.99) we’ve found around Disney World and Disneyland. We most recently spotted them in Magic Kingdom!
Uniqlo has introduced a NEW Mickey ART Collection! You can grab a kid’s shirt for $9.90, a kid’s sweatshirt for $14.90, a women’s sweatshirt dress for $29.90, an adult’s short-sleeve shirt for $14.90, and an adult’s sweatshirt for $29.90.
We are in love with this adorable Minnie Mouse design!
If you’re looking for a more subtle design, these are sure to do the trick.
Your kiddo would look stylin’ in this Mickey Mouse sweatshirt!
Head on over to Uniqlo to explore the entire new Mickey ART collection!
