Some of the treats were absolute winners in our books, while others…not so much. But we wanted to see what y’all thought about all of these goodies! So we’re holding the Official DFB 50th Anniversary Treats and Eats Challenge, where our readers can choose their favorite treats on social media in a bracket-style competition. It’s basically March Madness for the 50th Anniversary. Let’s see how those treats did in round two!
This past week has been a BIG one for Disney World, specifically EPCOT! The park celebrated its 39th Anniversary on October 1st (the same day as the big 5-0 in Magic Kingdom), and its anniversary was greeted by new fireworks, new dining experiences, and much more!
Looking for breakfast on the go when you’re in Disney World? There are plenty of options to choose from in the parks and resorts!
You can pick up quick items like the Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom or some pastries from Les Halles in EPCOT. You’ll also find Joffrey’s and Starbucks locations all around the property, so there are usually quite a few choices there. The other day, we picked up a quick bite from Joffrey’s, and in true DFB fashion, we just had to share our thoughts! 😜
We’ve talked a LOT about Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew because, well, we cannot get enough of those over-the-top donuts! And they are constantly releasing new donuts.
And let us tell you — we’ve had some doozies there, from the highly controversial Grilled Cheese Donut to a Peeps Donut to a Cinnamon Crunch Donut to a Thin Mint Donut! There have been a ton of wacky and wonderful flavors and we love trying them out!
We’re in EPCOT today admiring Spaceship Earth!
Well, we’re looking at other parts of the park too! We’re always on the lookout for updates in the Disney World parks and today we’re doing a lap around Future World and the World Showcase. So, without further ado, here’s EVERYTHING new in food, construction, and merchandise in EPCOT!
It’s time to mix things that shouldn’t be mixed: electricity and umbrellas. We’re back at Epcot’s Electric Umbrella to share the new Brisket Sandwich, a kids’ flatbread option, and a cup of beer cheese. (J/K, we don’t share beer cheese.)
Electric Umbrella is a classic Disney Parks quick service restaurant in Epcot’s Future World. It gets a bad rap, but I honestly am usually pretty happy with my meals there. [Read more…]
There’s so much going on in Epcot! They are getting ready for the Festival of the Arts to open next week, adding new rides, attractions, restaurants, and even more. This visit was jam-packed with updates!
Let’s dive into all of the updates and start in Future World at one of our first stops on every visit — Fountain View for Coffee and Cupcakes!
If you have a sweet tooth this is the Halloween Time stop for you. Schmoozies is serving up a Croissant Donut, Caramel Apple Smoothie, and Whoopie Pie. And yes, we got all three of them!
is a fabulous opportunity to eat lots of great food and to drink lots of great drinks. And while we know we’ll be putting some of our returning favorites on our must-eat list — we also make a second list: New Stuff We Can’t Wait to Try! (Yeah, we’re all about lists here at DFB!)
And this is that list — including a few items we got the chance to sample recently!
Guinness Baileys Shake – Ireland
The new Guinness Bailey’s Shake from the Ireland booth got us all kinds of excited when we saw it on the menu! We were expecting a frozen, creamy drink with a powerful hit of Guinness and Baileys — and that’s just what we got when we tried it during a preview! PLUS it comes with the glass! We can’t wait to try it again!
The Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar is brand new this year, and the offerings sound incredible! Mimosas include varieties like the Tropical Mimosa and the Madras Mimosa (which we have tried!), and there’s a tasty-sounding, kid-friendly drink called Frozen Apple Pie!
But aside from those intriguing drinks, the Mimosa Bar is also serving up pastries like an Almond Croissant and a Cheese Danish with Sweet Icing! One of each, please! [Read more…]
