We’ve been tasting our way through all the Father’s Day treats that have popped up in Disney World recently. But, every once in a while we need a little break — we’re only human after all!
When you think about fine pastries at Walt Disney World, you probably think of Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in Epcot’s France, where napoleons and eclairs seem right at home. Or Amorette’s Patisserie, where everything is perfectly crafted into a work of art. But Trolley Car Café, the last bastion of pastries in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has introduced new pastries that will transport you to France via Hollywood Boulevard.
We spotted these new pastries this afternoon, and we had to share them with you ASAP. [Read more…]
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we totally think that there should be some amazing pastries #OnTheList! And we’re starting at Gaston’s Tavern in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
You’ll find the cozy counter spot in New Fantasyland, adjacent to other attractions featuring Beauty and the Beast themeing. And if you’re a fan of that film, you have to see this area. Just like Cars Land in Disney California Adventure, Disney did an absolutely astounding job making this corner of the park an immersive experience. You expect LeFou to greet you at every turn!

We have been waiting patiently since we first heard the announcement, and the day has finally arrived. The doors to Amorette’s Patisserie have officially opened!
The brand new, upscale bakery joins other boutique sweets spots, like Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC, The Ganachery, and Vivoli Gelateria, at Disney Springs this week. The work on the newly re-imagined shopping and dining district is just about complete, and it’s pretty amazing.
But along with other carts and shops, Amorette’s Patisserie has been on our short list of places to anticipate! Let’s head in and take a look around.
Step into the newly opened Town Center at Disney Springs and you’ll soon locate Amorette’s Patisserie. The Disney-created back story is charming: artistic sisters Kara and Sara are the current owners of the shop, which has been passed down through many generations of their family. The shop dates back to the earliest days of Disney Springs, around 1900.
But the sisters are as interested in artistic expression via beautiful and delicious pastries as they are in other forms of art. And so you see evidence of their handiwork throughout the shop. We’ll get to some sweet examples in a minute, but first, let’s look around a bit. [Read more…]
We’re big fans of Macarons around here. These wonderful little pastries are so, so addictive; and recently they’ve started popping up in Disneyland and Disney World, including Patisserie Boulangerie Les Halles.
And judging from your comments, you love them, too! So Disney’s giving guests even more opportunity to show their Macaron Fandom with Macaron Merch in the gift shop right outside of Les Halles!

These are perfect for pastry lovers…

One of our favorite spots in all of Disneyland is Jolly Holiday Bakery. We never get tired of looking through their pastry cases for something new to delight us!
And right now, they’re stepping up their game with some new, limited-time offerings.
Limited Time Offerings at Jolly Holiday Bakery
Jolly Holiday obviously has a Mary Poppins theme, and this adorable Spoonful of Sugar offers a lot of flavor AND visual interest in one bite!
The treat includes pâte à choux, chocolate caramel ganache, sprinkles, chocolate pastry cream, dark chocolate, white chocolate, a tiny penguin made from sugar, and marshmallows! Whew! That’s a LOT of detail!
If you love the looks of this little guy, you better get to Disneyland quick — he’s only available August 22-31!
But there are several other pastries and desserts making a limited time appearance at Jolly Holiday Bakery. Look for these to stick around into September.
Get a load of this gorgeous Red Velvet Whoopie Pie!
Recently, our Dining in Disneyland columnist Heather Sievers showed us some of the other delicious new treats that are available now through September at Jolly Holiday. We fell in love with the Mickey-Shaped French Macarons.
The Passionfruit Macaron is sweet with more sweet, but we love the sparkly embellishment on top.
We much preferred the [Read more…]
I was swinging by Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery in Disney’s Animal Kingdom the other day and two things on the breakfast menu caught my little eye…
First up — the hot breakfast wrap sounded like a yummy, protein-y mix of goodness to fuel my park day (and I did get it, though I’ll tell you all about it in another post); but THEN…how could I ignore the next item on the menu?
Warm Colossal Cinnamon Roll???? For NINE DOLLARS?!??!?!
OK, so A) When you use the word “colossal,” you better mean business, and B) Seriously?? Nine dollars???
I took this picture to show you the size of this thing. The roll is big enough to [Read more…]
Ahhhhh. cinnamon rolls. How I love thee. You are the undisputed Breakfast of Champions. And the best of the lot, in my opinion, were the ones available at Pre-Starbucks Main Street Bakery in the old days.
Now, I’m not jumping on Starbucks. I know that lots and lots and lots of you are super happy the Siren has moved into Main Street Bakery. But…well…I mean, just look at this.
But whatever the reason, these are still my favorite. And I do wish you could still get them — and all those scoops of extra icing! Yum! Well, no matter. Because we have the recipe! And knowledge is power.
So I can make them anytime I’d like. And now, so can you. 🙂
