Halloween may be only a few days away, and Christmas is already creeping into Disney World, but that isn’t stopping Everglazed Donuts in Disney Springs from coming through with a last-minute addition to the pumpkin treat family!
Tucked away in an unassuming little building in Disney Springs, Gideon’s Bakehouse bakes some of our FAVORITE cookies and desserts in Disney World! The bakehouse may not seem crowded, but there’s typically a long virtual wait just to get inside! Talk about exclusive!
Now, our favorite place to grab a specialty cookie has a new *super* limited-time snack, and it’s made with our favorite fall flavor: 🎃pumpkin🎃! So what’s the deal with this little bakery and their newest treat? Let’s find out!
Over the past month, we’ve eaten our fair share of pumpkin goodies at Disney World. From the Pumpkin Tiramisu in Hollywood Studios to the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, Disney World is currently a pumpkin lover’s paradise. And with new treats still arriving on the daily, like the Pumpkin Cheesecake at Creature Comforts, you’ll have a hard time running out of fall-themed items to enjoy!
Today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we stumbled across yet ANOTHER pumpkin treat that we think would pair perfectly with a Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew first thing in the morning!
What’s the best part of the fall? If you didn’t say pumpkin treats, we’re not sure we can be friends.
Okay, okay, maybe there are LOTS of good things about fall. We can stay buddies even if you didn’t go the pumpkin route. But you KNOW we’ve been keeping our eye on the pumpkin-y prize by scoping out all the fall treats and we found a good one today!
Everything’s coming up PUMPKINS at Disney World lately!
We’ve already indulged in the Pumpkin Spice Milkshake and the Pumpkin Spice Waffle Sundae (and of course, we’ve rinsed just about everything down these days with our beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks). Today, we stopped by Rosie’s All-American Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios for some pumpkin-flavored tiramisu!
Every year around Halloween, we anxiously await the return of The Great Pumpkin Pancakes!
Found at Disney’s Polynesian Resort’s Kona Cafe, the Pumpkin Pancakes they’re serving up this year are topped with a new cinnamon butter, pieces of spiced pecans, and candied pumpkin! Oh man, this is GONNA BE GOOD!
More Disneyland Halloween goodies for you today!
Already a great little stop for a snack and a drink, Maurice’s Treats at the Fantasy Faire has added a new reason to go and get a “Twist.”
Maurice’s Treats normally serves up 3 types of baked “Twists.” They currently offer Strawberry, Chocolate, and Cheddar Garlic Bagel flavors. In addition to the usual flavors, a Pumpkin Twist has debuted for Halloween Time.
I’m basically nuts about anything pumpkin, so I knew I’d love this. AND…. [Read more…]
