Is it just us, or are you LOVING all the sprinkles of snoap for the holidays in Disney World?
You know that glorious smell of cookies and cupcakes baking in the oven?
This holiday season, we’re indulging in ALL the treats in Disney World and Disneyland. And, now we’re grabbing THREE cupcakes, just in time for Christmas!
Although we’re still cleaning up from Thanksgiving, we’re ready to start baking up some Christmas goodies for the holidays!
And, there’s no better way to celebrate Christmas than a whole month of cupcakes in Disney Springs and Downtown Disney!
, the quick service dining spot at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge, is known for showing cupcakes some love. Remember the totally awesome Campfire Cupcake?
And we were excited to break the news that the loaded waffles were back at this quick-service staple recently, too!
Well, the pastry wizards at Roaring Fork are at it again, this time bringing the flavor with the Chocolate Peppermint cupcake of the month.
I’m all for celebrating the holiday season with a cupcake… and Sprinkles in Disney Springs and Disneyland’s Downtown Disney has just the way — or ways! — to do exactly that!
The Gingerbread Cupcake and Chocolate Peppermint Cupcake have returned for the season. [Read more…]
We’ve been checking out ALL THE GINGERBREAD Displays in Disney World from the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House to the Beach Club’s Gingerbread Carousel. Today, we’re at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, and we arrived not knowing exactly what to expect.
You see, the BoardWalk’s Gingerbread Display has varied over the years. You may recall the Sweet Shoppe theme or the days-of-yore Gazebo, or even the year that Stitch took over. Last year, the BoardWalk gave the Resort’s Pastry Chefs the opportunity to create several individual gingerbread houses themed to their choosing.
But for 2017, the whole team is back in action together, and they’ve created a brand new display themed after something very near and dear to our hearts… the BoardWalk’s restaurants!
Last year we created a special kind of challenge… It was meant for only the truly brave — the true cake and frosting fans. Some of you took on the sweet mission with enthusiasm and…well…courage.
Yes, we’re talking about the Disney Cupcake Crawl of 2011!
Now as we come upon the anniversary of this challenge, we’ve been inspired by all of you who have attempted — and even conquered — the Cupcake Crawl! And because Disney Cupcakes are one of our passions around here — Yep, we’ve created a sequel!!
The Disney Food Blog’s 2012 “Walt Disney World Cupcake Crawl” Strategy
Are you ready to take on yet another sugary challenge in the name of sweet snacks?!
Follow the 2012 crawl step by step, or opt to mix and match the 2011 and 2012 challenges. Cupcake success is accomplished when you’ve visited these six locations and sampled at least 7 different cupcakes.
Remember that many Disney World cupcakes are offered seasonally, so if you need to substitute out new options for the ones below, that’s A-OK with us!
Depending on your tolerance level, you may want to split this crawl up over a couple of days. We won’t judge!
Don’t forget, most of these can be purchased for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, so save up those snacks!
CONTEMPORARY RESORT: Cupcakes required = 2
Contemporary Resort’s Contempo Cafe is your starting point for wonderful (and seasonal) cupcakes.

Welcome Lindsay D. with a guest review of a seasonal cupcake from the Contempo Cafe! Thanks Lindsay for sharing this festive cupcake with us!
As a self-appointed Walt Disney World tour reviewer, I spend a lot of time on property checking out both official and unofficial tours. I’m often accompanied by my reluctant sister. I’ve learned from experience that the best way to convince her to tour with me is with bribes – of the sweet variety.
Thankfully, when I found myself on the wrong end of an evil stare on our self-guided tour of holiday decorations, we were already at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Contempo Café cupcakes to the rescue! I had already given her the run down of confectionary options on our tour path, so she knew what to expect. What neither of us expected, however, were seasonal cupcakes.
Despite the immediate need for a [Read more…]
