We brought you to the first day of Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays LIVE here on DFB, and today, we’ve got even more details about one of the Festival’s new experiences: the Cookie Stroll!
If you’re planning to celebrate the holiday season at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom this year, we’ve got everything you need to make the most of this jolly holiday party!
Ho, ho, ho, it’s here! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is here! And I went on the very first night so I could give you the scoop on all the holiday bites and sips!
The Magic Kingdom was bedecked in her absolute finest, Cinderella Castle was positively glowing, and there was more than enough merriment to go around!
Are you an Anna, Elsa, or Olaf fan? You might have to wait 4 hours to meet them in the parks these days, but you can grab a snack with their likenesses a lot quicker!
Due to the of popularity Disney’s award-winning film, “Frozen,” select food and merchandise around the Walt Disney World parks is showcasing some of the movie’s favorite characters!
Frozen themed Rice Krispy Treats were recently spotted at Epcot’s Mouse Gears as well as The Puffin’s Roost gift shop in the Norway pavilion. We found ’em in Disneyland at the Candy Palace this weekend, too!
Check out the fun close-up!
And sugar cookies have also taken on [Read more…]
Christmas cupcakes are awesome, but what are the holidays without a few cookies?
Main Street Bakery
In Disney, there are dozens of types of holiday cookies to choose from, but I always head straight to the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom to find the really creative ones!
And this visit was no different. Every year I find different options, and they’re all as festive and fun and can be. Let’s take a look at the 2012 editions of the Main Street Bakery holiday cookies!
Santa Mickey Sugar Cookies
I am a sugar cookie fiend — especially when they’re iced (you’re not surprised, are you?!) — and these ones absolutely stole my heart when I saw them in the bakery case!
This simple design represents Santa himself — complete with his little belt and belt buckle! Later in the week I saw these cookies made with a much larger belt and belt buckle, so there may be a few different versions out there depending on who’s manning the icing counter at the Bakery! 😉
But it’s not always what’s on top that counts! These soft, chewy butter cookies are always worth getting at the bakery. They’re delicious, and have a rich, sweet taste that’s [Read more…]
DFB is getting into the Halloween Spirit sharing tons of fun, spooky treats! We love this time of year when Halloween goodies materialize inside the candy shops, bakeries, and quick-service locations around the Disney Parks.
A few weeks ago, we highlighted the Pumpkin Beignets and Jack Skellington Popcorn Containers in Disneyland!
Let’s take a peek at some more of our favorites! Let us know in the comments below what you’re top choices are!
Disney Halloween Snacks
Of course, we can’t pass up taste-testing some of the seasonal fudge selections at the Confectionery on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. Here’s this year’s Pumpkin Fudge!
And there’s always room for Disney cupcakes – especially when they are seasonally themed!
Don’t settle for plain Candy Corn. Get a candy corn cupcake for super sweetness.
The Animal Kingdom bat cupcake we reviewed last week is one of my favorite additions this year!
And the Main Street Bakery features this pumpkin cupcake.
Check out this cute Minnie Carrot Cake Cupcake that reader Carolyn Houle sent in! You can find these at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Of course, you can’t miss the classic Ghost Mickey Popcorn Container found in all the parks!
Holiday sugar cookies are always sprinkled with festive decor. Love these pumpkin and candy corn cookies at the [Read more…]

Hmm… last I checked the calendar it was August, but in “Disney time” that means Halloween is right around the corner! Check out these not-so-spooky treats Heather and I found in Disneyland and in Disney World! One question, though — why is Mickey’s tongue hanging out on all of the logos? Weird. On we go…
I’m usually not a fan of the pre-packaged, hard-icing sugar cookies, but these might be too cute to pass up.
And here are a couple of treats for the candy corn lover! We didn’t try them, but gummy candy corn smelled oddly of butter….yep, I said butter. Next time you’re in a Disney candy store, see if you can find a bag and smell ’em. Would love to hear from anyone who’s tried them!
If Halloween cookies and cupcakes are your thing, grab these [Read more…]
