Hello, lords and ladies, and welcome to What’s New at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! Summer is in full swing here, and with the changing of the seasons comes some seasonal eats, some fun merchandise, a bit o’ construction, and a moment of zen. Come along!
Magic Kingdom Menus & Eats
At Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A., the dog of the month is the Casey’s Classic. We reviewed this back when it was called the Breakfast Dog! It’s loaded with hash browns, cheddar cheese, bacon, onion straws, and a chipotle ranch drizzle.
New Minnie Ears alert! And this time, it’s for the Disney food fans. Because if you never leave a Disney park without eating one of these…
…you’re definitely going to want to wear a pair of these!
We’re no strangers to Mickey and Minnie Ear treats at Walt Disney World, and we love when a new take comes out on an old favorite! That’s the case with these new Minnie blondies!
We first tried them wayyyyyy back in 2012, when Chocolate Brownie reigned supreme. And we recently spotted these Blondie and Strawberry Brownies at Panchito’s Gifts and Sundries at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The fun is on at Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort. With parades, nighttime shows, and a bazillion themed eats, Pixar Fest is shaping up to be one massive, summer-long celebration. And we. are. IN!
At candy kitchens in Disneyland proper and Disney California Adventure Park, guests can bite into sugary, colorful Pixar Cake Pops! We spotted Grape Soda Bottle Caps, the Pixar Ball, Nemo, and Dory!
Disneyland Resort is the land of Mickey Mouse, princesses, and churros. Okay, maybe that’s not an official designation, but churros are a quintessential part of the Disneyland experience. With so many from which to choose (and even more available during Pixar Fest!), there’s a churro for everyone!
Our Disneyland correspondent, Heather (check her @DiningInDisney on Instagram!), is always up for a new churro, and she brings us the Pineapple Churro today! She picked this up from the churro cart in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
When Disneyland Resort introduced a brand new Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea a couple of weeks ago, we were chomping at the bit to learn more — and to get in on that tea and sandwiches action! The Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is a part of the on-going (and delicious!) Pixar Fest, so guests can reserve tea through September 3, when the festival ends.
We were there on DAY 1 to enjoy it, so let’s head over to Steakhouse 55 and enjoy afternoon tea!
The cost of the Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is $52-$65 per adult and $35 per child, and its location at Steakhouse 55 raised our expectations. We’d already had a great experience at Steakhouse 55 for regular old afternoon tea. Imagine what would happen when they Pixar-fied it!
The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!
1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.
Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).
Whether you’re looking to save stomach space, hate wasting food, or want to save a little money, don’t neglect the kids’ menu!
