Hello to all our DFB friends out there!
We’ve spent a little time wandering around Disney World’s resorts to see what’s been going on since we were there last. So let’s get on with some updates, shall we?
Disney’s Beach Club Resort Food Updates
Not every snack at Disney World can be a hit, and the Sweeter Than Roses treat was just a mess that didn’t do much to wow us. It’s made with raspberry mousse on a chocolate hazelnut cake, with a ruby red raspberry center and chocolate fondant decorations. You can try it out for yourself, though here and at The Market at Ale & Compass through May 9th for $5.79.
However, the Peaches Delight Macarons WERE better, although the macarons were a bit chewier than they should have been. These are available now for $6.19.
One of the prettiest cupcakes we’ve ever seen came from Beach Club Marketplace this week! The Mother’s Day Bouquet Cupcake is a Red Velvet Cupcake filled with Chocolate Mousse and decorated with Buttercream flowers.
And it tasted as good as it looked, especially if you love chocolate like we do! It’s available until May 9th here and at The Market at Ale & Compass.
Beaches and Cream created the sundae of our dreams with the Bailey’s Brownie Sundae. It’s 3 scoops of coffee ice cream, a brownie soaked in Baileys Irish Cream, and it’s topped with Baileys Irish Cream-infused whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a cherry. And yes, it’s amazing.
Beaches and Cream knocked it out of the park with this one and we hope it sticks around for a while. It’s available now for $18 and it is WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Disney’s Riviera Resort Other Updates
Valet parking is finally returning to Disney World resorts. We first saw it return to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, but it’s also back at Disney’s Riviera Resort, too!
It’s $33 per day at both resorts.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Food Updates
The Millennium Falcon Sundae flew into Pineapple Lanai for a limited time and we got to try it out! It’s made with galactic gray vanilla soft-serve with chocolate cream cookie crumbles, chocolate drizzle, white chocolate pearl stars, brownie asteroid pieces with stardust sparkles, and a Millennium Falcon chocolate accent piece.
Basically, this sundae has all our favorite things in it, so we loved it! Unfortunately, it was gone in less than 12 parsecs… .
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Merchandise Updates
We found a brand new Moana Mug! How far will we go for this mug? It’s available for $20.
We also noticed a new digital screen upstairs next to Moana Mercantile.
The screen gives out hand information like park hours!
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Other Updates
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Food Updates
Roaring Fork now offers a Lumberjack Platter, which is a plate is full of pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and coleslaw.
We’ve certainly had better BBQ, but we don’t deny that this is filling!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort Merchandise Updates
We found a new Mary Blair Ornament with Mickey and Minnie!
The ornament is $24.99.
There’s a new Lion King Mom Pin at Fantasia.
This would make a great gift for Mom!
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Food Updates
We dropped by the Drop Off Pool Bar to check out the brand NEW Churro Horchata Milkshake. It’s made with Vanilla milkshake with Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Rice Milk, and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. And yes, it’s yummy, although VERY sweet.
We thought it reminded us more of Eggnog! Grab it now for $12.
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa Construction Updates
The resort is still getting a paint touch-up!
It’s going to be looking good for Disney World’s 50th anniversary!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Food Updates
Laguna Nights are coming back as of tonight!
Live entertainment? We’re in!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Merchandise Updates
We found both the new Disney Rainbow Collection…
…and the new Tropical collection here!
So if you’re looking for pieces of those collections, here’s another spot you can find them!
That’s it for our time at the Disney World hotels, but we’ll be back soon with more updates!
