It’s Valentine’s Day!!!
And we are running ALL over Disney World this weekend checking out the Valentine’s Day snacks and drinks! Which means we HAD to make a stop at Le Petit Cafe, which always blows us away with its beautiful pastries!
Happy New Year, DFB Friends! It’s the end of the year and the beginning of a new one, and you know what that means… .
We’ve been at the Morocco Pavilion at Disney World, watching things beginning to open back up!
The pavilion recently closed temporarily to prepare for Disney to take over its operation from its previous operating partners. But this weekend has seen the reopening of one of its gift shops, as well as the reopening of Spice Road Table.
We were VERY curious when we found out Chef Mickey’s would be reopening at Disney’s Contemporary Resort during Disney World’s phased reopening. As soon as they began accepting reservations, we promptly booked ourselves a table at this iconic spot!
But like so many newly reopened restaurants at Disney World, Chef Mickey’s has had to make several modifications. They’re no longer offering character dining or buffet-style dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the time being. In fact, dining is just limited to breakfast for now. We’ve already shown you some of the BIGGEST changes Chef Mickey’s has made since it reopened, but now we want to share with you all the details of what our FULL experience was like!
Welcome to Epcot
, where the future is now, and you can travel the world in about a one-mile-long stroll! We’re bringing you What’s New from the Park, including a brownie you’ve got to see to believe, construction progress that’s creeping along, and a view from the literal future!
When you think about fine pastries at Walt Disney World, you probably think of Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in Epcot’s France, where napoleons and eclairs seem right at home. Or Amorette’s Patisserie, where everything is perfectly crafted into a work of art. But Trolley Car Café, the last bastion of pastries in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has introduced new pastries that will transport you to France via Hollywood Boulevard.
We spotted these new pastries this afternoon, and we had to share them with you ASAP. [Read more…]
White Water Snacks
is the quick service spot at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It’s designed to reflect the spirit and style of camping, and after a brief refurbishment that began in September, we’re happy to report that White Water Snacks has reopened! Here’s a look at the refreshed space and the grub we can’t wait to try!
Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (follow her adventures @DiningInDisney) took a stroll through White Water Snacks to grab a treat from the Get Your Ears On celebration (we’ll take a second look at that in a bit!). [Read more…]
When Ale & Compass Restaurant opened at Walt Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort last November, it received mixed reviews. The nautical and sparse decor appealed to some but made others feel the space was too stuffy.
The menus raised some eyebrows, with self-proclaimed New England-style options not appealing to, well, New Englanders. We gave it a bit of a tepid review for dinner, and we heard from lots of readers who missed the former Captain’s Grille breakfast buffet.
For one of those contentious topics, Ale & Compass offers a solution. A breakfast buffet is now available! (And we were told that it was due to popular demand from guests. So see? Sometimes your requests do make it all the way to the top!)
And the price is actually OK on this one!
has become a nice little getaway in New Fantasyland (seriously, it’s been five years; when can we stop calling it “New”?), with a limited menu and proximity to meet-and-greets with the man himself.
Gaston’s menu is usually pretty minimal. At present you can find a Ham and Cheese Pretzel, a Chocolate Croissant, and a Fruit and Cheese Picnic Platter much better suited to Belle than someone so good at expectorating. And then there’s the Warm Cinnamon Roll, which is soooo satisfying (particularly so when you request extra icing…). We love it so much we even got the recipe!
