In the past, we’ve loved sundaes like the Thundering Surf Peanut Butter and Chocolate Sundae and the Bayside Brownie a la Mode. Now, BoardWalk Ice Cream has a brand-new offering and we checked it out!
We’re back with another DFB food hack for ya!
You know we love finding cool and creative ways to eat in Disney World. We’ve taught you how to make waffle ice cream sandwiches, hack Disney drinks, and even access top-secret menus! And today, we’re back with a fun way to create your own Mickey-shaped snack.
With Halloween quickly approaching, Disney has pulled out all the stops when it comes to frightfully delicious food items. We’ve filled you in on plenty of seasonal park snacks, including all the tasty offerings at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
But today we’re bringing you to tropical Typhoon Lagoon for a brand new bone-chilling frozen treat.
I know, I know: you’re still catching your breath after our whirlwind 2017 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival coverage… ‘cuz so am I. But did you know that just days before the Festival kicked off, I spent some quality time on the west coast, too? (Well, you did if you follow me on Instagram!)
Yep! I went to Disneyland! And of course my trip included a stop at Paradise Pier in Disney California Adventure.
This super fun, boardwalk-themed area is full of lights, music, laughter, and mega-good eats. We’re talking Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Bayside Brews, and the famous Corn Dog Castle, for starters! Ariel’s Grotto offers Character Dining, and you’ll also find Paradise Garden Grill, where you can nosh on Mediterranean-inspired skewers, PLUS my very favorite spot: Cove Bar (where you can check out the Secret Menu!).
But on this visit I had my sights set on something a little sweeter. Enter Paradise Pier Ice Cream Co.! [Read more…]
Welcome back guest author Zachary Ott with a photo review of the snacks found at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea!
Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea offer some fun and unexpected eats for guests! Check out what we uncovered!
This is one of the many Disney-branded vending machines selling an assortment of soda, tea, and juice drinks.
Numerous popcorn carts dot the landscape of both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. This particular cart, found outside the Winnie the Pooh themed attraction, sells popcorn flavored with honey and matching popcorn buckets.
Other popcorn flavors included: Curry, Sea Salt, Strawberry, and Maple.
These were two of the bakery options available off of Main Street. On the left is a Mickey Icon shaped banana bread and on the right is a semi-sweet melon bread baked to look like Mike from Monsters Inc.
Here are more examples of fake [Read more…]
Today, we welcome Heather Jones with a guest review of one of our favorite Walt Disney World spots — Beaches and Cream!
On our last visit to Walt Disney World, my family and I had the pleasure of spending a night at the Beach Club Resort. One of the things I was most excited about was finally getting a chance to eat at Beaches and Cream.
Beaches and Cream is located where the Beach Club and its sister resort, the Yacht Club, meet; and the restaurant looks out to the Stormalong Bay pool complex.
They don’t take reservations at Beaches and Cream, and I had heard that it could get really crowded at peak mealtimes; so we decided to head over in the middle of the afternoon to avoid the lunch rush.
Beaches and Cream is a cozy (read: tiny) soda fountain and burger joint. The tin ceilings, old-fashioned pendulum light fixtures, and pastel color scheme give it a nostalgic 1950s feel. Whimsical borders and [Read more…]
July is National Ice Cream Month!!!
And since Sunday was National Ice Cream Day, we’ve put together a gallery of some of our favorite chilly treats from Disney parks and resorts! (Yes, you have permission to have ice cream for breakfast.)
We know we’re not covering everything, and we’d love it if you would leave us a comment mentioning your favorite ice cream-based dessert in a Disney restaurant. Can’t wait to find out what your choices are! 🙂
So now, without further ado, here’s where to go to get some of our favorite sweet-cold treats in our favorite theme parks!
The Plaza Ice Cream Sundae
Scoops of vanilla ice cream drizzled with hot fudge is then covered in whipped cream when you order this Plaza Ice Cream Sundae. There’s not just one, but many crowning cherries on this divine treat. And that’s all before you get to the crunch of a delicious waffle bowl (if you even make it that far…we didn’t)!
Okay, it’s served in a plastic bowl, which makes it a little less decadent but the crispy waffle bowl will make up for the lack of glassware. Got spare time while waiting curb-side for the parade? Grab one of these little beauties before staking out your piece of pavement! (Or, better yet, let someone else stake it out for you, then head over to the Main Street Ice Cream Parlor to snag one of your own.)
Location: Main Street Ice Cream Parlor
And don’t forget to pick up this little favorite at the Plaza, too! A Mickey Ear ice cream cone!
Dole Whip Float
This is practically a food staple at WDW. Hey, it’s a daily fruit serving, right?! The Dole Whip float is soft serve treat with pineapple juice and should be on your Magic Kingdom touring plan.
No visit to Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom is complete without a Dole Whip. Before your flight on Aladdin’s Magic Carpets, sit for a spell and give your taste buds a sensational journey!
Kitchen Sink Sundae
It’s everything but the kitchen sink! This must-share, ginormous dessert begins with [Read more…]
