Most restaurants are offering limited menus due to the new re-opening procedures. With that, we noticed a lot of crowd-favorite snacks went missing! We already knew some of these tasty treats wouldn’t be making a reappearance, at least not initially, but the loss became way too real now that we’re back in the parks! [Read more…]
While we miss the rides and shows at Disney World, we’ve especially been missing all the FOOD.
Even though we don’t know when the parks will reopen since they’re closed indefinitely, we do know exactly which snacks we’re making a beeline for. And, you might want to wear your stretchy pants the next time you’re in Disney World because you’re going to want all of these!
Here at the DFB, we’re all about taking advantage of money-saving opportunities whenever possible, but we also love snacks, soooo… We’ve combined these two loves into one super tip that’s straight from the 2019 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining!
That’s right: Snacks that are filling enough to be meals — which means saving some money or Disney Dining Plan credits! A Walt Disney World vacation budget often revolves around food: How much do we want to spend on meals each day? What’s the most we want to spend on snacks? Are we going to buy souvenir goodies to bring home?
If you’re on the DDP, you still have planning to do and questions to ask: If we want to try a Signature meal, how do we conserve entitlements to be sure we can cover it? If we’re on a Quick Service DDP, how can we stretch those credits to cover more meals?
Hey, Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and to help you get through the rest of the week, we’re going to have some fun with some French Fry FAVORITES!
From regular cut fries loaded with toppings to some rather high-end Poutine, there’s no shortage of potato goodness all around the World. In fact, we’re checking out so many today that you could build your own ’round the World French Fry Tour! So if you’re a French Fry fan, then you’re not going to want to miss today’s video!

Y’all!!! It’s time for some FRONCH FROES!!!!!!
(For those of you new to DFB, that’s “french fries” in AJ-speak. ;-D)
It’s just one of the many great features that make the 2018 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, 2nd Edition, our best book yet. With more than 650 pages of color photos, tips, reviews, and extra features, you HAVE TO HAVE IT for your next Disney trip! (I’m not biased or anything. For realz.)
But now, back to the subject at hand. Call ’em Fries, Chips, Poutine, whatever — there’s pretty much nothing about fronch froes we don’t love. And Disney hasn’t failed us with their yummy spins on this classic side.
So head out with us as we complete this most delicious challenge. We’ll be all over the place for this one, so plan accordingly! The French Fry Crawl will likely take you an entire trip to complete. Unless, you know, you’re like us — and want to eat fries for every meal. Then it might only take you a day and a half. 😉
Hungry? Good! Let’s go!
Stop #1: Smothered Fries, Beaches and Cream
Our first stop is Beaches and Cream. Find this little Soda Shop in the Disney Beach Club Resort.
Beaches and Cream is one of my favorite stops for about a million reasons. There’s a cool, beachy retro feel to the place, and it’s known for its killer sundaes. While my favorite is the No Way Jose, the most iconic treats here are the Kitchen Sinks.
But we’re stopping here today for a plate — or two — of their Loaded Fries! Currently, there are three versions: Sock Hop Fries, Chili-Cheese Fries, and Cheese and Bacon Fries.
Sock Hop Fries are covered in a savory Brown Gravy and topped with melty Shredded Cheddar. Think of them as Poutine’s American cousin.
But the Bacon and Cheese Fries. Omigosh. Cheese Sauce (!!!!), Bacon, Peppercorn Ranch, and Red Onions elevate this one to amazing. [Read more…]
