We couldn’t get over the new Lady and the Tramp cake featuring one of our favorite Disney duos and now we know what’s hiding under those candy meatballs!
While it might only be January, Epcot is already kicking things off in 2020 with a FESTIVAL! And, you can celebrate the Culinary, Visual, and Performing Arts at this year’s 4th annual Festival of the Arts.
Now through February 24th, you can catch all the amazing merchandise and entertainment in the park (like the Disney on Broadway Concert Series!). Buuut, there’s also our favorite part — the ood being offered at the booths around the festival. And, obviously, we can’t pass up some good eats and treats in Disney World!
Of course you know we’ve eaten EVERYTHING (yep — every. single. thing.) at the festival…
…and we’re here to share with you our must-eats from the 2020 Festival of the Arts! So, without further adieu, you can snack and sip along with us as you check out our…
BEST OF THE FEST!
Here are our favorite EATS that we tried around Epcot today!
If you’ve been wondering if the Abominable Snowman’s snow cones from Monsters, Inc., are really lemon (or not!), wait no longer! Because the now Adorable Snowman has opened his counter service windows on Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure Park! (HUGE thanks to @StephRPowers for these awesome photos!)
Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats is one of the first of many highly anticipated openings to happen on the reimagined pier, and we’re excited to bring you the menu and a peek at one of the most amazing items on it!
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!
I know, I know: you’re still catching your breath after our whirlwind 2017 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival coverage… ‘cuz so am I. But did you know that just days before the Festival kicked off, I spent some quality time on the west coast, too? (Well, you did if you follow me on Instagram!)
Yep! I went to Disneyland! And of course my trip included a stop at Paradise Pier in Disney California Adventure.
This super fun, boardwalk-themed area is full of lights, music, laughter, and mega-good eats. We’re talking Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Bayside Brews, and the famous Corn Dog Castle, for starters! Ariel’s Grotto offers Character Dining, and you’ll also find Paradise Garden Grill, where you can nosh on Mediterranean-inspired skewers, PLUS my very favorite spot: Cove Bar (where you can check out the Secret Menu!).
But on this visit I had my sights set on something a little sweeter. Enter Paradise Pier Ice Cream Co.! [Read more…]
We recently we dug our spoons once more into Kaki Gori, the Japanese Shaved Ice served at Kabuki Cafe. For years now, it’s been THE go-to treat as far as frozen options in the Japan Pavilion go, perfect for the cooling down in the current summer heat.
But did you know that Japan has got another — perhaps more authentic — frozen snack to keep your temperature down? It’s called Mochi. And though it’s been hanging around at the carts in the pavilion on-and-off for years, this additional cart we spotted recently seems to be mostly Mochi-centric. [Read more…]
If you follow DFB on social media (I pretty much live on Instagram, and we’ve got a great group of Facebook and twitter friends, too!), you may already recognize this ab-so-lute-ly gorgeous vision I’m about to show you.
And this time, the Raspberry Rose Cupcake is ready for its closeup with a full review!
This seasonal beauty comes to us on behalf of the BoardWalk Bakery. You’ll typically find three cupcakes up for grabs inside what happens to be one of my favorite bakery cases in all of Disney World. Two of those cupcakes are the classics that tend to stick around (even though they’ve had makeovers of their own over the years): the Mickey Oreo Cupcake and the Strawberry Cupcake.
That third cupcake, though, changes up with some frequency, so I’m always sure to check out the seasonal selection, and I’m sure you can tell why this one caught my eye immediately.
It’s as pretty as a rose because… well, it’s a rose! But is has this advantage over the original: it’s a rose that’s also a cupcake.
Just last week some new Disney Princess cookies were introduced at the Disneyland Resort. I spotted them at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney. Not only did I conduct a little princess photo shoot on the spot, but I also took Ariel home with me for a taste test!
The generously sized cookies are all “Honey Vanilla” in flavor. They’re available in 4 different designs and will set you back just under $5.00.
I thought that the Snow White cookies were very well done. The eyes and hair were true to character & her face looked so sweet (literally and figuratively).
Cinderella was a little scary looking to me. Her hair looked [Read more…]
