Something Disney has done in the past is take some of our favorite snacks and add a nice little spin on them that makes them a little more magical, and we came across one of those today at Disneyland! [Read more…]
Recently, we shared with you over 50 Disney World upgrades that cost less than $50 and that got us thinking…
…what about some upgrades you can find for even CHEAPER?
Specialty treats come and go in the Disney Parks, and when Mickey’s 90th birthday party arrived in November 2018, Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in Disney Springs made some frozen magic with the Magical Birthday Sundae.
But then… it was gone. For weeks. Until it then appeared at Disney California Adventure’s Ghirardelli location, rebranded as the Magical Sundae. [Read more…]
Pixar, Pixar, Pixar: you’re keeping us busy here at the DFB! With the fabulous grand opening of Pixar Pier at Disneyland Resort and the barely-out-of-the-box Toy Story Land that just opened at Walt Disney World, we’re on Pixar overload (and WE LOVE IT).
There’s just something completely perfect about eating an ice cream sundae on Main Street, U.S.A., in the shadow of Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle. The simplicity and innocence of that moment is sort of what Walt’s parks are all about: leaving today and entering the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.
What better way to seize that moment than with an All-American Sundae from the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor?
When awesome Disney food just isn’t enough, the mad scientists of the DisneyFoodBlog world get to work. And what results is pure Disney (food) magic: Disney FrankenFoods.
FrankenFoods come alive when we mix and match some of our favorite Disney Parks foods, creating new combinations (and possibly opening portals in the universe of food… no one knows for sure). All we know is that it’s fun (and usually delicious).
Our good friend Heather Sievers of @DiningInDisney fame recently embarked on a quest to build a Fried Banana Sundae. Here’s how she did it.
Heather started this FrankenFoods journey at Award Wieners in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure.
Summer is the season of frozen treats, and while we don’t think you ever need a specific reason to indulge in ice cream, the heat in central Florida is certainly a sufficient and easy excuse.
Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop is located in the Marketplace of Disney Springs, with the “Spitting Stitch” entrance of World of Disney on one side and the Marketplace Co-Op on the other (Disneylanders can find Ghirardelli in Disney California Adventure, too). You might know Ghirardelli as the San Fran-sophisticated shop that emits the irresistible scent of chocolate (and the spot where you can still snag a free sample of the famously creamy Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares).
In addition to chocolate, Ghirardelli always plays a great Sundae game. Treats come complete with San Francisco-inspired names like the Golden Gate Banana Split. There’s also a spectacular four (or more) person delight called the The Earthquake with its EIGHT scoops of ice cream and full toppings (think of it as akin to Beaches and Cream’s Kitchen Sink, only without an Advance Dining Reservation).
So, everybody, grab a spoon, and join us as we try two Sundaes we hadn’t tried on previous visits: the Presidio Passion and the Crissy Field.
FYI, Presidio National Park is located at the Golden Gate in San Francisco, and the Presidio Passion Sundae inspired by this unique park is a chocolate-covered strawberry lover’s dream!
Swirls of strawberry and chocolate come together in this indulgent cup (the cup is key here, as it’s easy to carry with you if you’ve grabbed your sundae on the go!). Just LOOK at it…
We are back with another of our favorite Disneyland Snack Hacks! And this time, it’s dessert all the way, my friends. Previously, we shared with you some winners, like the Saucy Cheddar Cheese Stick and our very own Churro Sundae. And who could forget the Tajin Dole Whip? YUM.
Dining in Disneyland authority Heather comes up with some amazing ideas when it’s time to snack in Disneyland. And it seems that Churros, in particular, lend themselves really well to new snack ideas. Today, we’re gonna dip ’em.
