Something Disney has done in the past is take some of our favorite snacks and add a nice little spin on them that makes them a little more magical, and we came across one of those today at Disneyland! [Read more…]
If you are on the hunt for the greatest shake on Earth, look no further than Vivoli il Gelato in Disney World’s Disney Springs. This gelato shop always has a menu of awesome, ever-changing shakes, and now they’ve declared ownership of the Greatest Shake on Earth. 😉 This shake appears to be a nod to the live-action Dumbo that’s hitting screens next week, and you know we’re here for a treat with a movie tie-in!
Via Disney Springs’ Twitter we now know that the Greatest Shake on Earth consists of three types of gelato: strawberry, cookies and cream, and vanilla. It’s topped with cake and Oreo crumbles, strawberry sauce, and whipped cream. [Read more…]
Specialty treats come and go in the Disney Parks, and when Mickey’s 90th birthday party arrived in November 2018, Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in Disney Springs made some frozen magic with the Magical Birthday Sundae.
But then… it was gone. For weeks. Until it then appeared at Disney California Adventure’s Ghirardelli location, rebranded as the Magical Sundae. [Read more…]
is partying with Minnie and Mickey Mouse for the Get Your Ears On celebration, and as part of the festivities, a few special limited time treats have been created for Valentine’s Day! Enter Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, where Valentine’s Day means a Donut Sundae!
We’ve seen donut sundaes before — most notably at Walt Disney World’s Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. [Read more…]
Here at the DFB we love to be surprised (in a good way) by the eats we pick up at the Disney Parks. And when that surprise comes in the form of dessert, it’s even better! Such was the case with the Brownie Temptation at Main Street Bakery in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Main Street Bakery is the park’s Starbucks location, and it can be found on Main Street, U.S.A. In addition to Starbucks beverages and Starbucks-branded snacks, guests can also find more unique items.
The Brownie Temptation is being advertised on a temporary sign, and the picture doesn’t elicit a ton of enthusiasm. It looks like a pretty standard brownie with (admittedly tasty) sauces.
The reality is a nice, gooey bowl of sweetness, so an improvement over the photo. 😉 (An over-abundance of sauces is almost never a bad thing!)
The mound of whipped cream and drizzle of caramel are prominent.
The warm peanut butter and chocolate sauces spill over the sides and pool in the bowl, which is a good thing because the brownie is actually larger than I expected it to be. The choice of plating with the bowl contains all of those sauces.
The brownie itself is dense and moist, providing a lot of bang for the buck in terms of richness and chocolate flavor.
Overall, this one really surprised me! Why? Ha ha — I got a message on instagram asking “Why would you think a brownie with yummy sauces would be bad?” But the truth is, a LOT of Disney brownies are super dry and can’t be saved by the sauces in question.
So, the Brownie Temptation was much more tempting in person than in its signage, and it really delivered! Due to the richness of everything combined, it’s definitely share-able, but if you decide to attempt it on your own, might I recommend finding a cozy spot in the shadow of Cinderella Castle where you can linger over the classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate?
Yeah, I thought so. 😉

With so many creative and interesting snacks available at Disneyland Resort, it might seem like there’s no place for the simplest of treats: good ol’ fashioned Jell-o.
But that’s where White Water Snacks steps in — in the most magical way possible. Because White Water Snacks has Mickey-shaped Jello!
Woo! Back it up! Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (follow her @DiningInDisney!) stopped in for a snack recently, and discovered these jiggly mouse-shaped treats in a cooler in the grab-and-go section.
Also in this cooler are cream for coffee and packets of butter for other dishes — right next to a whipped cream canister.
Heather being the intrepid Disneyland snacker that she is spotted an opportunity immediately. The thick strawberry Jello was a decent portion and honestly as cute as one might reasonably expect Jello to be.
And now she had the perfect Jello food hack: cover that sweet treat in delicious whipped cream!
From every angle this has childhood favorite written all over it — only it’s not just a bowl of hastily spooned Jello. It’s Mickey!
Okay, so technically this is called Mickey Strawberry Gelatin, but we like to keep simple things simple: it’s Jell-o. And it’s delightful!
And that’s how Mickey Jello with Whipped Cream was born! And we love it in every way!
We’re so happy that the simplest food pleasures persist, even in the face of the incredible creativity and skill that brings pastries and desserts to life at the Disney Parks. And a food hack involving Whipped Cream? Always a win!

It’s happening! Pixar Fest is officially kicking off at Disneyland Resort! And while we’re excited for two returning parades and a new projection show called Together Forever, you know what we’re most looking forward to: the eats!
There’s just something completely perfect about eating an ice cream sundae on Main Street, U.S.A., in the shadow of Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle. The simplicity and innocence of that moment is sort of what Walt’s parks are all about: leaving today and entering the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.
What better way to seize that moment than with an All-American Sundae from the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor?
