But sometimes that means that some of our favorite snacks have to go away forever. We’re not always sad to see something go (we were FINE when the BIZARRE Squid’s Revenge drink disappeared). Sometimes, though, Disney decides to get rid of some of our favorite snacks, and then we’re just sad.
We have no problem admitting that some things in Disney World make us cry — and we have a feeling y’all totally understand that.
Seeing Cinderella Castle for the first time during a Disney World trip? Yep, there are TEARS. Riding our favorite ride (even if it’s for the thousandth time)? Yep, we’re going to have a good bawl. Meeting Mickey? Okay, that might be at the top of our list of things that get us emotional. But today, saying goodbye to a snack — yes, A SNACK — made us emotional.
Okay, so we KNOW that Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration is over, but we really didn’t want to say goodbye to some of our favorite snacks from the event.
We DID get a little lucky in that some treats DID stick around, like the Glimmer and Shimmer Blondie in Hollywood Studios. Wendell’s Bear Claw in Magic Kingdom also stuck around — for a while — but then it was gone for what we thought was FOREVER. BUT…that snack showed back up TODAY and now we’re like, “WHAT?“
The worst part about Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration being over is that many of the AMAZING 50th Anniversary snacks went away with the celebration. (Looking at you: Pressed Penny Silk Pie, and you, too, Mr. Monte Cristo)
But some of our favorites still held on under new names, like the Shimmer and Glimmer Blondie in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (we were SO relieved when we saw it on the menu). Another favorite of ours also stayed on the menu after the celebration ended, so we THOUGHT it might stick around for good, but sadly, as of May 27th, that treat is GONE.
It’s the end of an ERA.
Okay, we know Disney World’s 50th anniversary has come and gone (although the decorations have been taking their own sweet time coming down). But, one 50th anniversary snack was a DFB favorite, and we were thrilled to still be able to order it after all the festivities had ended. Unfortunately, that won’t last forever — we recently got word that this beloved treat would be leaving the menu SOON.
🚨 WARNING! 🚨 You’re missing out on some of the BEST food in Disney World!
Disney World has so many restaurants and snacks to pick from, it can really be overwhelming. You can certainly go watch our video about the BEST food in Disney World, but if you want a list of just the best desserts in Magic Kingdom, you’ve come to the right place!
Hamburgers, french fries, ice cream, and churros — What do all of these things have in common (besides the fact that they’re delicious?!) They’re all your standard, run-of-the-mill theme park food that you can find in any Disney World park.
Now, that doesn’t make them ANY less tasty, by any means, but what if you want to try something new and different that you can’t find anywhere else in Disney World? Well then, we’ve got you covered!
Some of the treats were absolute winners in our books, while others…not so much. But we wanted to see what y’all thought about all of these goodies! So we’re holding the Official DFB 50th Anniversary Treats and Eats Challenge, where our readers can choose their favorite treats on social media in a bracket-style competition. It’s basically March Madness for the 50th Anniversary. Let’s see how those treats did in round two!
We ate some truly delicious snacks on October 1st, but there were plenty that didn’t make our favorites list as well. In case you don’t have time to go through all our reviews and photos from that glorious day, we ranked ALL the 50th Anniversary treats, drinks, and snacks we tried in the Magic Kingdom.
What a food-filled day this has been at Magic Kingdom! We’ve been trying brand-new food and drink items in celebration of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, including treats from Aloha Isle, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe, and Columbia Harbour House!
