Call up Snow White because we think that she’s going to want to try this fall-flavored dessert from Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor!
It’s APPLE TIME! At least it almost is. And Disneyland is getting a leg-up by bringing back a favorite from last year!
Yee-haw!! Howdy from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge! We decided to mosey on over to Whispering Canyon Cafe, because they changed their dinner menu earlier this week.
Whispering Canyon Cafe has long been a favorite spot for comfort food, all-you-can-eat skillets, and rowdy antics from the servers, and we were excited to see what new eats they had to offer!
Whispering Canyon Cafe has been a staple of fun family dining at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge for years.
And I’ve enjoyed a meal and the overall atmosphere many times over the years. This has been the place to go for raucous hijinks like wooden pony races, massive straw drops, and tables overloaded with ketchup bottles.
That’s all to say: there has never been much whispering going on at Whispering Canyon Cafe. But it’s a place where fun was front and center, food was decent (although never particularly inspired), and diners knew they’d have a good time.
But that history of silliness and play was all in jeopardy last year when Whispering Canyon Cafe got a bit quieter. That’s because — for reasons unknown — Whispering Canyon Cafe toned the fun way down last May.
Or did they? After we posted about the major changes coming to the Cafe, our readers reported a lot of variation in their dining experiences. Some found the quieter setting, while others still witnessed hijinks. [Read more…]
What goes best with Ice Cream? More Ice Cream, of course!!
If you feel the same way about this decadent treat as we do, then you’re gonna wanna check out the Three Monster Sundaes that you’ve gotta try at Walt Disney World.
Each will send you paging back through your wildest childhood dessert fantasies. And hey — that’s exactly what Walt Disney World is all about, right?

Have you ever wanted to sit down to 10-Gallons of Ice Cream? Tempting, I know. But probably not realistic.
While larger-than-life sundaes have been around for a while, we’ve never seen anything quite like this. The dish comes to the table not in a bowl, but in a clear Ten-Gallon Cowboy Hat. So sit a spell, Cowpokes. It’s time to dig into some serious vittles. [Read more…]
We are back at Wilderness Lodge’s Whispering Canyon Cafe, and this time it’s just for dessert! It seems like we were just visiting this favorite fun spot of ours for dinner but after hearing rumors about a new GIGANTIC dessert we had to make our way back… .
Making its sort-of debut is the…drumroll please…10-Gallon Challenge!
Why sort-of? This item hasn’t made the official menu yet and will most likely be in a testing phase for the next few months. But don’t let that stop your party from ordering it for now. Just consider it to be a secret menu item!
Time to dive into a new sweet snack at Epcot’s American Pavilion!
At the Fife & Drum, a counter service spot located at the front of the pavilion where we love to pick up our American Dream Slush and other assorted goodies, you can now indulge in a new snack item: Apple Pie a la Mode.
Now, don’t get too excited. This is basically the same counter-service apple pie “pocket” that you have always been able to get over at Liberty Inn next door, and at Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom. And that’s OK, since it IS pretty good. But with this option, they’ve added vanilla soft serve ice cream to make it “a la mode.” [Read more…]
Welcome back guest author Carrie Hayward with a review of breakfast and lunch at Flo’s V-8 Cafe in Cars Land, Disney California Adventure!
This Spring we got to attend an Annual Passholder preview of Cars Land. Everything was open, including new counter-service restaurant Flo’s V-8 Cafe.
We are usually pretty disappointed by the counter-service options at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland (Jolly Holiday Bakery excepted!), but we waited in the 20-minute line with our hopes high. Who wouldn’t want to eat in a life-size replica of the stylish drive-in from Cars?
Flo’s is HUGE inside, with four dining rooms.
The restaurant actually extends halfway down the block, but one wing is themed to an auto clinic [Read more…]
It’s a Jolly Holiday on Main Street! It’s open everyone, it’s open! We’ve been waiting patiently or maybe not so patiently for the new Jolly Holiday Bakery to open since it’s cute signs started enticing us months ago.
Yesterday, the Jolly Holiday Bakery, a counter service eatery, soft opened in Disneyland with a “Grand Opening” planned for Saturday, January 7th. I am happy to announce that I was there yesterday morning on the very first day of service and everything was spit spot!
We’re covering both breakfast AND lunch at the bakery in this post, so stay tuned for dozens of mouth-watering photos of what’s available…like these!!
These are just teasers, though! Read through the rest of the post to see more yummy pics!
When walking up to Jolly Holiday, I noticed that it was a completely full house with the line wrapping around out the door. It was prime breakfast time and with this being the only eatery open on Main Street, it was the place to be. Not to worry though, the line moves quick and once inside, it splits into two lines with multiple speedy cashiers ready to take care of business! There is plenty of outdoor seating & even with a long line, there were many available tables to choose from.
While in line, the decor is distractingly adorable, so that makes it go even quicker! My absolute favorite thing to see were the [Read more…]
