If there’s one thing we love here at DFB, it’s a food HACK!
And if there’s TWO things we love at DFB, it’s Disney food hacks AND seasonal treats!
We’re totally fine with Disney rolling out the holiday treats early. We already had a Valentine’s Day Red Hot Cinnamon Cupcake that was the bomb dot com.
We noticed that another Valentine’s treat has arrived a month and a half in advance. The crowd-favorite Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Sandwich is back for the most romantic time of the year. But. Um. It’s not quite what we remember.
There are a lot of different types of food to choose from at Disney World, but choosing what your tastebuds are in the mood for is only half the battle!
That’s because while many foods at Disney World are delicious, they’re not all created equal!
We seem to be encountering a reoccurring theme a lot throughout Magic Kingdom right now, and we’re not talking about construction like Cinderella Castle’s royal makeover or attractions being unexpectedly closed like the Haunted Mansion was earlier today!
No friends, we’re talking about MISSING TREATS! First, we saw the giant Mickey Celebration Donut vanish without a trace. Then the Arendelle Aqua Cone was the next snack to suddenly go M.I.A., and now, we’re putting out an all-points bulletin for Sleepy Hollow’s Churro Ice Cream Sandwich, because it’s MISSING!
Our time on Disney Cruises is all about chilling out, spending time with family and friends, and having some GREAT food!
Even when we’re on vacay, we’re scouting new snack hacks to share with all of you! While we’ve already showed you the Mickey Ear Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich and the Cheesy Chocolate Caramel Popcorn, we’re taking it back to the basics with this Disney Cruise Line treat!
Some time ago now, Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches hit the scene in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney. And the hopeful cry immediately went up for their arrival in Disney World. Well, it only took four years, but….
IT’S HERE!!! Head to Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow Refreshments for the brand new Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich!
You read the title. Peanut Butter. Cookie. Ice Cream. Altogether in a SANDWICH. Is it any wonder that the Home-made Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich with Warm Peanut Butter is #OnTheList this week?!
OK, so do you want a little background on this one? Here you go. A few weeks ago, I noticed that someone had tagged my instagram account with one of their pictures. And that’s when I started hardcore following Toms_Big_Eats. This guy is in the UK, but was visiting Orlando for a while; and I fell in love with this photographs from the trip.
Last Friday, he tagged me in his latest Disney World food pic…and I knew I. HAD. TO. HAVE. IT. Seriously, WHY HADN’T I THOUGHT OF THIS?!??!?!? We hit up Magic Kingdom this weekend specifically for the awesomeness you’re about to see…
You know that here at DFB we’re very, VERY fond of sampling snacks in the Disney parks and resorts!
And today we’re excited to show you a few more of our favorites — salty, sweet, creamy, crunchy, or a cross between!
We’re highlighting one of our classic food crawls! These little adventures are a great way to mark off some popular foods, all while touring the park at the same time!
And no worries — if you love this one, we have seven more food crawls for you to tackle in our new DFB Guide to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom Snacks! I hope you’re hungry…let’s go!
Begin with a Disney Food Blog Favorite from way back — Cupcakes!
Once you enter the park, walk straight down Hollywood Boulevard and start your day with a cupcake at Starring Rolls Cafe. For the DFB Favorites Crawl, we recommend that you stick with one of two classic choices: the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake, or the Butterfinger Cupcake.
If you choose the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake, be forewarned: this one is for avowed chocoholics, or fans of that crazy amazing chocolate peanut butter combo. It’s chocolate with more chocolate with the cake and chocolate curls on top. But then, it’s crowned and filled with the most amazing chocolate peanut butter frosting! You have to taste it to believe it!
Or, you can opt for the [Read more…]
OK, all. Today we’re talking about something that I know you can all appreciate…
COOKIES! Yep. Simple, sweet, and the perfect combo of portable and delicious, cookies are the oft-forgotten workhorse of the snack world.
Now, I know that there are dozens of awesome cookie options in Disney World. So many that we couldn’t possibly list them ALL in our “best of” post about cookies. But we’re going to take a shot at listing a few of our favorites…and hopefully a few that you haven’t yet sampled!
These are cookies that are truly something special — options that either I couldn’t get anyplace else, or treats that say Disney! loud and clear to me.
So I present to you the Disney Food Blog’s Favorite Cookies at Walt Disney World! Don’t forget to check out more awesome Disney Snacks like these in our 2018 DFB Guide to Magic Kingdom Snacks e-Book!
Ever since I discovered the Carrot Cake Cookie at The Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I’ve made it a point to grab one on just about every trip. The Writer’s Stop is — sadly — now closed, but you can still grab the Carrot Cake Cookie at Trolley Car Treats!
These are the epitome of awesome Disney snacks. Unique, only found in one park anywhere in the world, and truly, over-the-top delicious. They consist of two components: Cakey “cookies” and a huge amount of cream cheese icing — more than you would ever get on the run-of-the-mill slice of carrot cake.
The cookies themselves are moist, sweet, and spicy. And I liken this snack to the best version of a whoopie pie ever. 🙂
This treat is huge, which makes it perfect to share or to eat as a snack over a few days!
You saw this one coming from a mile away, didn’t you? There is no fancy dessert that holds a candle to one of my favorite grab and go sweet treats, the Homemade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich!
Two ginormous cookies are smooshed together with a huge scoop of ice cream for a portable (if slightly messy) treat. Decadent, simple, and a great way to cool down on a hot Florida day!
You know, I go to Sleepy Hollow Refreshments SO often when I’m in Disney World that I sometimes forget that it’s been a while since I actually “reviewed” it here on DFB! Let’s remedy that with some awesome pics of one of my favorite spots in the Magic Kingdom.
Sleepy Hollow has always been one of the hidden gems in Disney World. It looks small and standard, but the menu packs a bunch of unique items that you can’t find anywhere else in Disney World. These include the now-cult-favorite waffle sandwiches in a couple of different varieties. Few folks visiting the park can resist stopping by for a sweet or savory waffle!
I’ve tried them a time or two, and I certainly have my favorites (mmmm…Nutella!). But today, I’m stopping by to see if they’re just as good as I remember! And I’ll probably need to snag a certain very favorite dessert while I’m here as well. 🙂
If you veer left from Main Street toward Adventureland, and then hang a right on the foot bridge leading toward Cinderella Castle, you can’t miss Sleepy Hollow. Located at the entrance to the quaint Liberty Square area, this is a great spot to take a breather.
As you approach, you’ll see that Sleepy Hollow is a walk-up spot. The line wraps around the side — and there often is one, so be prepared.
Here’s some seriously fascinating trivia — the design of Sleepy Hollow’s facade is actually based on Washington Irving’s house in Tarry Town, New York. The detail of this place never ceases to amaze me. (Irving penned The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. But you knew that, of course.)
The spot is centrally located in the park, which means you’re steps away from anything that you’d like to take in next. That makes it a good rendezvous spot as well.
There is quite a bit of picnic-style seating beyond the pick up window, and you have a fun side view of the castle show while you’re eating.
All of the seating is located outdoors, but there’s a shady area with an overhang if you prefer it. Not many folks know about this seating area, so you may be able to find a table even on busy days.
When we finally got through the line and were ready to order, I had to snap a pic of the MyMagic Reader that’s set up at the ordering window. This is where you scan your key card to pay these days! It’s part of the MyMagic+ system Disney will be rolling out over the next year.
So, what will it be today? So much awesome to choose from…
Sleepy Hollow is still primarily a snack or breakfast stop, but with the addition of the savory waffles, you can easily make a meal here. (Look at all those Disney Dining Plan snack credit options!)
