Professional football teams aren’t the only ones competing for glory this weekend! Frankly, our Best Snacks of 2021 Bracket is JUST as exciting as the Super Bowl, and we’re whittling things down with Round 2!
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the news for you this week. Today we have all the details on the latest in the Disney World theme parks and MORE!
See all of our coverage on Disney park reopenings HERE. We still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
It has been a WHIRLWIND day for us at Magic Kingdom! From scoring a Madame Leota sipper to trying The Grey Stuff Cupcake (IT’S DELICIOUS! Sorry, we had to.) at Gaston’s Tavern, we have been living our best lives.
So, we thought to ourselves, we need to share all of this excitement with YOU! We’ve been taking lots of videos from the parks today and sharing them over on Twitter, and here are our favorites from our day in Magic Kingdom!
If you’ve been with us for a while, you probably know we love cupcakes!
When we’re in Disney World, we tend to keep our eye on the prize — and by prize, we mean delicious cupcakes covered in a mound of icing! Today, we learned that Gaston’s Tavern will be reopening this Friday, and that instantly had us dreaming about Cinnamon Rolls…but it looks like that’s not the ONLY exciting treat in our future. Is that a new cupcake on the menu?!

Because I’d totally be leading the charge if they ever stop serving Dole Whip Floats.
But even with all the amazing favorites that give us warm fuzzies (and, in my case, cause me to go back to Disney parks over and over again), I still love Disney’s mission to surprise and delight guests with new offerings. It seems like every week, there’s something they’re debuting that I go nutso over — and off I go to add it to the next trip’s “must-eat” list.
Today, I’m offering a run down of the latest things that are on the list for my next trip. I’ve tried a few already, and others are completely new to me. And even though I’ll be in the ‘World smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, I’m saving room for these treats!
Gourmet Cake Cups at Magic Kingdom’s Cheshire Cafe
You Guys. I have a new FAVORITE obsession. And this time, it starts with Cake. And ends with Cup. Instead of the other way around.
We brought you the first look at the new Gourmet Cake Cups at Magic Kingdom’s Cheshire Cafe just recently. This spot in Fantasyland, formerly known as Enchanted Grove, has always been cute, but it’s never numbered among our “must-visits.”
But that has changed completely since they introduced these amazing treats.
I mean seriously, you would think they picked up the phone, called me, and said, “AJ, we’re making a new treat, and you’re in charge of R&D.”
The parfaits are a topsy-turvy, whimsical take on a cupcake, turning the über popular treat into what it should be: a vehicle for frosting. I mean really, when was the last time you ate a cupcake and said, “Gee, that was pretty good, but I really could have used more cake.”
And this cake cup got it RIGHT.
So it was a given that I made a beeline for [Read more…]
