We’re back with more updates from Disney World’s Resorts!
This time, we’ve been making our way all around the Disney World resorts, seeing what’s been happening since we last visited. And we’ve got quite a few updates for you, so let’s get started, shall we?
Animal Kingdom Lodge Food Updates
Our beloved Nyala Brownie has RETURNED to Disney World! It’s been gone for a while, and we’ve really missed it! This Mickey-shaped brownie topped with peanut butter buttercream and vanilla buttercream has LONG been a favorite of ours and it’s still as delicious as ever!
You can grab it now at the pool bar, as well as at The Mara for breakfast. It’s $4.79. Trust us, it’s worth it!
Speaking of The Mara, it’s now serving dinner once again!
Previously, it was only available for breakfast, but now it has new hours from 4PM to 9PM too.

The Drop-Off Pool Bar debuted TWO new drinks. First, there’s the Fish Tank, which is Svedka Vodka, Malibu Coconut Rum, Blue Curaçao, Sprite, Sour mix with Nerd “rocks,” and some Swedish fish! This VERY refreshing drink is available for $13.
Then, there’s The Tipsy Rabbit. This is Kahlua and Stoli Vanil in a Chocolate Milkshake with a chocolate and sprinkles covered rim, whipped cream, and a Bunny Peep. It’s more dessert than drink, but hey, we’re cool with that.
You can grab one now for $14.
We tried ANOTHER Easter Cupcake at Landscape of Flavors. This one is the Easter EGGS-traordinaire Cupcake and it’s a Vanilla Cupcake with Lemon Filling, Vanilla Buttercream, Assorted Candy Eggs, Jellybeans, and Wildflower Quins.
Yeah, it sounds like a lot, and IT WAS. It didn’t really impress us much with its taste, and the lemon tart filling was underwhelming.

Ink and Paint Gift Shop
There were some pretty pre-made Easter baskets available in this shop, along with some individual candy offerings. Yum — CANDY! Isn’t that the best part of Easter?
We also spotted the Aladdin Puzzle we recently saw at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The puzzle is $24.99.

The Big Blue Pool
This is one of the most popular pools on-site, so its reopening is an exciting one!
Pop Century Resort Merchandise Updates
Everything Pop had pre-made Easter baskets for sale, too!
We also spotted the cute new Headphone Cases we’ve seen elsewhere at Disney World. There’s Minnie, Spaceship Earth, Cinderella Castle, and a Wilderness Explorer Backpack!
The Headphone Cases are $19.99 each.
Pop Century Resort Construction Updates
Jungle Book Characters
We saw some painting going on near where you can find the characters from The Jungle Book.
Looks like things are getting spruced up a bit in the “60s” section of the resort!
Caribbean Beach Resort Merchandise Updates
Calypso Trading Post
There were a few pre-made Easter baskets available (and like the other resorts, you can have a custom one made, too).
And we found two NEW utility keychains! There’s a Minnie one…
…and a Mickey one!
These are $12.99 each.
Riviera Resort Merchandise Updates
And because it’s Easter weekend, we spotted even more pre-made baskets at La Boutique!
These baskets are so cute!
Polynesian Village Resort Food Updates
Y’all — there’s Marshmallow Soft Serve now available for a limited time! MARSHMALLOW.
And although this sounds like a sickly sweet dessert, it’s actually quite yummy — grab it while you can for $4.99.
Polynesian Village Resort Merchandise Updates
We spotted a VERY cool and vibrant Trader Sam’s Men’s Shirt at BouTiki. This is TOTES giving us Tiki Room vibes! But it was already selling out when we spotted it!
We also spotted some great Disney shirts for moms, including a Best Mom Ever Tee AND a “Mom Life is Best Life” Tee. Wouldn’t these make great Mother’s Day gifts?
Mother’s Day isn’t so far away, you know.
Did someone say candy? Oh, wait, it was us! There was loads of Easter candy available, including Chocolate Bunnies…
…and Chocolate Eggs!
And remember those awesome Tiki Lamps that used to be in the rooms at the Polynesian Resort? Well, YOU CAN BUY THEM NOW! A Cast Member shared that these are the same type of lamps the rooms used to have before they got their Moana makeover.
If you want one for yourself, they are $299 each, but you need to HURRY because we were told that they aren’t available often and they tend to sell out quickly!
Yacht Club Resort Merchandise Updates
The Market at Ale & Compass
We found a pre-made Once Upon A Vine Easter Basket! Wine in an Easter basket? Yes, please!
Like the other locations, you can get the pre-made baskets here, too, or have one customized!
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Food Updates
We’ve got some GREAT news! The Chocolate Mickey Waffle Sundaes have made their glorious return! You get one chocolate Mickey Waffle, ice cream (you can choose your flavor), chocolate sauce, sprinkles, and a cherry on top. And you can get it in a Mickey souvenir bowl, too!
This snack is better than ever — you can grab it now for $15.99.
Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa Construction Updates
Several areas around Saratoga Springs are getting repainted.
Just a quick touch-up before Disney World’s big 50th anniversary celebration, right?
Saratoga Springs General Updates
For the first time ever, Saratoga Springs has added Easter displays and it brought its A game!
This beautiful display will be available through April 11th, so be sure to head over there to see it if you’re in the area!
Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Merchandise Updates
Sandy Cove Gifts and Sundries
So we’ve seen an Easter Basket with wine, but we also saw one with Champagne at the Grand Floridian. Now, THAT’S what we’re talking about!
It will set you back $89.95, though!
We’re all about some self-care, and Bath Bombs are a must. And we found some new Easter Egg Bath Bombs. They’re 3 for $15.
But there were also Villains Bath Bombs because it feels good to be bad, right?
These are also 3 for $15.
Contemporary Resort Merchandise Updates
Remember those awesome World Showcase Pins we saw at Disney Springs? Well, we found them at the Contemporary, too!
There’s one for almost every country!
We spotted a ton of Easter candy here, but what really caught our eye was a pre-made Villains Easter Basket! Say what?
This Marvel Polo Shirt might just be a MUST for superhero fans!
The shirt is $59.99.
That’s it for our time at the Disney resorts, but we’ll be back soon with MANY more updates, so stay tuned!
