When those post-Disney Parks blues kick in, there are lots of ways to fill the void. Some of us read trip reports, others ghost plan future trips (don’t say we’re the only ones who do this…), and still others pore over their vacation photos and videos. All of these efforts to reclaim the magic are valid, but there’s one way in particular that DFB recommends: eating. But not just any old snacks! We’re talking Disney Parks food favorites you can find at home!
There’s so much happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios right now. Halloween treats are making their way into the park, there’s some new SUPER CUTE Disney Tails merch, and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is starting to take shape just to name a few!
In addition to finding fun Halloween desserts we also spotted the Tire Jack-o-Lantern Straw in more locations around the park! Rosie’s All-American Cafe at Sunset Ranch Market (you’ll also find them at ABC Commissary) treated us to some Halloween treats this week. Check out all they are offering as well as what we thought of them in our review.
The heat of summer in central Florida is quickly approaching (believe it or not!), and we’ve found an icy drink in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom that is guaranteed to give you the chills. The Desert Pear Lemonade Slushy is sweet, tart, and totally refreshing. And you’ll find it at Golden Oak Outpost, current home of Chicken Nuggets and former home of Sweet Potato Nuggets!
We found lots of new treats, comfort foods, and beverages around Walt Disney World this week. There are so many fun finds that I can’t pick a favorite!! Check out all of our yummy discoveries in our What’s New post, including an adorable Orange Bird Caramel Apple!
Don’t miss the Cinderella’s Royal Table renovation announcement on our Pin Board! If you’re visiting in 2015, you’ll want to make a note of the rehab dates.

So, I’m strolling through Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation during my recent Walt Disney World trip. I can never pass up a visit here!
Landscape of Flavors
Now, remember when I told you about the shockingly yummo Strawberry Cheesecake at Electric Umbrella? It’s part of the “dessert in a cup” genre of counter service desserts you’ll find throughout the parks. But it’s actually pretty good.
AND…do you remember when I told you about the Frozen Cheesecake on a Stick in Disneyland? Just when I didn’t think they could make cheesecake any more interesting or delicious, they popped it on a stick and gave it the deep freeze — perfect for a stroll-and-eat treat.
Well…Walt Disney World has obviously gotten the memo. Because check out what I just found!
Frozen Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake on a Mickey Straw
Yep — you guessed it — they’ve taken the Strawberry Cheesecake, popped it out of the cup, and made something altogether new. It’s Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake, Dipped in Chocolate, and served on a Mickey Swirly Straw.
So there are a few positives about this. [Read more…]
