Sure Disney World has its fair of sweet treats, but on the whole, they just can’t compare to Disneyland. And there’s one treat that sells out daily that you just have to know about!
Now, don’t get us wrong, we’ve enjoyed a lot of the holiday treats at Disney World, but Disneyland just seems to go a little harder on the food pretty much year-round. Where else are you going to get a Waffle version of the Monte Cristo? Or a Cinnamon Roll Pretzel? Well, let’s just say we tried three NEW snacks in Disneyland, and well, Disneyland has done it again.
Okay, so we sort of kinda’ missed National Chocolate Chip Day a bit, but we’re of the opinion that EVERY day should be a celebration of chocolate chips.
So while we were busy eating other snacks, like unique Kit Kats, fruity potato chips, and Disney Cruise Line desserts, we were still thinking about that most classic of chocolate chip snacks, the Chocolate Chip Cookie. And of course, we’ve got our favorites at Disney World.
Although we love our savory and sweet snacks equally, there’s something about cookies that just always makes us so happy. We LOVE nomming on cookies, and we’ve even made a batch of the Hocus Pocus cookies at home!
But what if we told you there was a place at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney where you could get FREE cookies?
Well listen up, Cali friends — it’s time to indulge!
The theme at Disney Springs right now is Beat the Heat. In the dog days of summer we certainly agree!
We scoured Disney World’s shopping and dining district and found what’s new so you know where to stop the next time you’re at Disney Springs for a cool drink, snack, meal, or air conditioned retail therapy!
What’s New in Disney Springs West Side
Sometimes the only way to make a Disney food even better than the original is to make it mini. We submit mini Mickey Waffles as irrefutable evidence.
And now Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland Resort’s Frontierland is providing another piece of proof for this theory.
Ready to see our favorite new “mini” option in Disneyland?!? Here they are!
It’s time for a fabulous Disney Food Hack! This one’s for all my fellow Ice Cream Sandwich lovers out there — but it’s nothing like the ones you can already snag around the World at spots like Sleepy Hollow and Hollywood Scoops.
Nor is it one of the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from L’Artisan des Glaces. OR a Gelato Sandwich from the Gelato Stand in Epcot’s Italy. OR the Double Chocolate ice cream sammie from Tamu Tamu in Animal Kingdom. It doesn’t even involve Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich (although it is so quintessentially Disney). [Read more…]
Heeeeeeyyyyy! As all of you know, I just returned to from a fantastic visit to Disneyland for the opening of the 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival! But I also had a blast checking into all of my favorite spots.
I made a point to get to one place especially — the new Sprinkles located in the Downtown Disney District in Disneyland Resort!
You guys — I make NO secret about my deep and abiding love for Sprinkles. Well, my love for cupcakes in general goes deep. After all, Disney Cupcakes are some of my favorite things ever.
And there’s something well, magical, frankly, about having Disney and Sprinkles located in the same place.
And now, I can enjoy that Disney Sprinkles fun whether I’m in Walt Disney World or Disneyland!
As I entered the store, a glance at the menu showed me that many of my favorites were available on the day of my visit. This outlet is much smaller than the Disney Springs store, however. [Read more…]
You read the title. Peanut Butter. Cookie. Ice Cream. Altogether in a SANDWICH. Is it any wonder that the Home-made Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich with Warm Peanut Butter is #OnTheList this week?!
OK, so do you want a little background on this one? Here you go. A few weeks ago, I noticed that someone had tagged my instagram account with one of their pictures. And that’s when I started hardcore following Toms_Big_Eats. This guy is in the UK, but was visiting Orlando for a while; and I fell in love with this photographs from the trip.
Last Friday, he tagged me in his latest Disney World food pic…and I knew I. HAD. TO. HAVE. IT. Seriously, WHY HADN’T I THOUGHT OF THIS?!??!?!? We hit up Magic Kingdom this weekend specifically for the awesomeness you’re about to see…
Ah, Disneyland. Gorgeous weather, original park dreamed up by Walt himself, and home of some seriously fantastic ice cream treats. Today, we’re stopping by the recently-renovated Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street USA to check out one of their house specialities!
Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor has long been a fixture on Main Street USA, and guests can often expect to encounter long lines here as they await their turn to order their favorite cone, cup, shake, or sundae.
But with some extra added touches, you may soon find that it’s well worth the wait. Plus, we have a tip for minimizing line time… .
It’s very likely that you’ll smell Gibson Girl Ice Cream before you spy it. There’s some serious freshly baked waffle cone-age happening inside, after all!!
Step inside, and you’re immediately greeted by a “sorbet” palette (get it?!? the hits keep on comin’). Pink, mauve, and pale green/blue combine to provide a pleasing Victorian feel.
The swirling dark wood pattern reminds me of filigree, in contrast to a backdrop of pastel, marbleized stained glass.
Turn-of-the-century, Victorian touches extend above and below as well. Ornate brass chandeliers hang from intricate ceiling medallions, and the ceiling design mimics tin tiles.
Striking wall sconces softly illuminate while adding a powerful decor punch.
And, if you peer out the painted window at just the right time, you may just spy a [Read more…]
