REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

We’ve taken with you us all day to the Disney Resorts to find Fourth of July treats all over Disney World!

REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

Beach Club

While we’ve stopped by Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, we’re at our last stop of the day at Disney’s Beach Club Resort!

Although this treat might be last of the day, it’s definitely not least. The Red White and Blueberry Trifle is layered with berry compote, vanilla cake, shortbread crumble, cherry mousse, whipped cream, and sprinkles.

REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

Red White and Blueberry Trifle

We’re gonna be honest here — looks can be deceiving. We did NOT think much of this trifle when we first saw it and almost walked right past it! Disney is a big fan of verrines (AKA trifles) and we frequently see them appearing in their home base of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While this Beach Club dessert is called a “trifle,” it’s much more similar to a verrine. But, we’re not complaining!

REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

Red White and Blueberry Trifle

The Red White and Blueberry Trifle has a bit of a crunch from the shortbread crumbles, even though the rest of the treat is nice and smooth. Although a lot of the berry, cherry, and whipped cream flavors are sweet, there’s a hint of tartness from some of the lemon juice mixed into the trifle.

REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

Red White and Blueberry Trifle

If you’re craving a more traditional treat, the Beach Club Resort also has a Fourth of July Cupcake and a Welcome Back Funfetti Cupcake too! However, the Welcome Back Cupcake sold out pretty quickly, so we’ll have to check back to give you a look and review.

REVIEW! THIS Treat is the Surprising WINNER of All the Fourth of July Treats We’ve Had in Disney World!

Fourth of July Cupcake

While our hearts will belong to the patriotic Peanut Butter Pie that we had today (we just can’t get enough of it), we were surprised to find that the Red White and Blueberry Trifle happened to be our other favorite Fourth of July treat for only $5! It’s one of the least aggressively-sweet treats we tried. The balance of citrus, berry, and sweet flavors were refreshing compared to the other chocolate or sugary buttercream flavors we’ve had all day long. On that festive note, we wish you a Happy Fourth of July however you spend it!

How are you celebrating the Fourth of July today? Let us know in the comments below!

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

Disney fireworks (even virtually!) and food seems like the perfect way to spend the Fourth of July today!

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

We’re snacking our way around the Disney Resorts wearing our stretchy shorts (there are just so many good treats)! Although we’ve already fallen in love with SO many red, white, and blue treats like the patriotic Peanut Butter Pie and Fourth of July Cupcake, we’re back at the BoardWalk Bakery for a whole array of festive treats.

Although we’re all about the red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, after we ate our way through BoardWalk’s Fourth of July cupcake, we shifted gears to see what ELSE was on the star-spangled menu. First, we dove into the soft Strawberry Shortcake Bar at the BoardWalk Inn (pink is one of our favorite colors too) for $5.99.

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

Strawberry Shortcake Bar

The bar is layered with fluffy vanilla cake, strawberry filling, and whipped cream. If you’re looking for something light and smooth, the Strawberry Shortcake has simple and sweet flavors that combine together wonderfully. Although it’s tasty, we definitely could have used a stronger strawberry flavor. If you’re looking for a sweet treat that won’t weigh you down, this will fit the bill nicely.

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

Strawberry Shortcake Bar

But, the real winner for us was the mini American Apple Pie! The crust is similar to the Peanut Butter Pie‘s buttery crust over at the Contempo Cafe with apple filling, crumble, and a sweet drizzle on top. When you order it up, you’ll get a fresh dollop of whipped cream and sprinkles on top.

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

American Apple Pie

The inside has bits of soft apple with a kick cinnamon flavor that’s perfect for all the apple pie lovers out there! While the American Apple Pie is served cold, we actually think that it would be GREAT to take home and pop in the microwave so it’s warm like a fresh pie out of the oven. Plus, while the whipped cream was nice, we think some vanilla ice cream on top would make it the ultimate festive treat for the Fourth of July!

REVIEW! We Found the MOST Patriotic Treat in Disney World for the Fourth of July!

American Apple Pie

You can get the American Apple Pie for $5.99 (and maybe even learn how to bake your own full-sized version at home)!

REVIEW! Disney World’s BoardWalk Bakery’s Fourth of July Cupcake is a STUNNER!

While you might be starting your Fourth of July festivities with your family and friends, the Disney Resorts have been calling us with all their holiday treats!

REVIEW! Disney World’s BoardWalk Bakery’s Fourth of July Cupcake is a STUNNER!

BoardWalk Inn

While we’ve already seen a patriotic cupcake trio, a firework blondie pop, and a raspberry cream cheese-filled cupcake, the BoardWalk Bakery has baked up MULTIPLE Fourth of July treats (and we’re trying them all for you)!

The Fourth of July Cupcake at the BoardWalk Inn is not only adorable (just LOOK at that pinwheel!!), but it’s got two treats in one too! The chocolate cake is topped with vanilla buttercream, sprinkles, and a fondant pinwheel that even Minnie Mouse would love. But, the best part is that there is a cheesecake filling on the inside of the cupcake that makes the treat doubly sweet!

REVIEW! Disney World’s BoardWalk Bakery’s Fourth of July Cupcake is a STUNNER!

Fourth of July Cupcake

Although the cake is moist and there is plenty of buttercream, the cheesecake filling holds most of the weight of the cupcake. The filling adds a bit of creaminess to the treat (we could honestly eat a cup of that filling!). While we are big fans of the marshmallow creme from the Contempo Cafe’s Fourth of July Cupcake, the cheesecake has officially become our number one filling from today!

REVIEW! Disney World’s BoardWalk Bakery’s Fourth of July Cupcake is a STUNNER!

You can get the Fourth of July Cupcake for $5.99 at the BoardWalk Bakery, along with the rest of the festive treats being featured today (but more on those in a few minutes!).

REVIEW! A Cupcake With ALL the Red, White, and Blue Frosting (and a Favorite Got a Patriotic Makeover!) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort!

It’s been a cupcake crawl ALL over the Disney Resorts today for the Fourth of July!

REVIEW! A Cupcake With ALL the Red, White, and Blue Frosting (and a Favorite Got a Patriotic Makeover!) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort!

Contempo Cafe

We’ve already seen a cupcake trio at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and an AMAZING treat with a raspberry cream center (!!!) at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. And, our next snack on the list is perfect for all those frosting fans out there!

The Fourth of July Cupcake is making a fabulously festive appearance at the Contempo Cafe in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Although last year’s Fourth of July treat combined red velvet cake and berries, this year’s is the PERFECT choice for a dessert that your whole family will enjoy!

REVIEW! A Cupcake With ALL the Red, White, and Blue Frosting (and a Favorite Got a Patriotic Makeover!) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort!

Fourth of July Cupcake

Surprise, surprise — it’s VERY red, white, and blue!  The chocolate cupcake is filled with marshmallow creme and topped with red, white, and blue buttercream, along with patriotic sprinkles and fondant stars. The cake on this treat is just SO GOOD. It’s very moist, which pairs extremely well with the fluffiness of the marshmallow creme.

REVIEW! A Cupcake With ALL the Red, White, and Blue Frosting (and a Favorite Got a Patriotic Makeover!) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort!

Fourth of July Cupcake

But, the main star of the Fourth of July Cupcake is all that frosting. The treat is piled high with so much buttercream (and ya’ll already know how much we love frosting). The Fourth of July Cupcake at the Contempo Cafe is a great holiday pick for the other frosting fans out there or someone who loves really cute cupcakes for $5.99! Heads up though — that potent dye might show on your teeth for a bit after, so maybe grab a water to help wash it down!

While we were at the bakery, we also spotted that our beloved Peanut Butter Pie has received a Fourth of July makeover too!

Fourth of July Peanut Butter Pie

Forget applied pie, our DFB reporter stated that there there’s nothing “as American as peanut butter pie” this Fourth of July (and we couldn’t agree more)! We LOVE this treat any day, but seeing it all dolled up for the Fourth was a nice surprise!

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs Starbucks Picnic Punch

If there’s one thing Starbucks knows how to do, it’s creating beautiful and tasty new drinks that everybody has to try (and Instagram!). Well, they’ve done it again! On our last trip to Disney Springs, we were lucky enough to try the colorful new Picnic Punch.

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

Picnic Punch starts off as a pineapple matcha drink and is topped with strawberry sweet cream cold foam. Wow, it’s pretty! It reminded us of a reversal of last year’s Millenial Falcon drink (a pink drink topped with matcha foam) and had that same level of refreshment. The initial flavor hit is strong with strawberry, which is sweet and fruity, then as the drink mixes, the tea flavor comes up more. The best part is definitely the cold foam where the taste of strawberry purée is clearest. But the whole beverage is refreshing and on the delicate side of Starbucks flavors.

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

It costs $7.40 before tax, so hopefully, you’ve been saving up some of those rewards from your morning fix. Whether you like coffee or not, this one is a great choice because it’s cool and light. However, if you really hate matcha or tea, steer clear. The matcha flavor gets strong towards the end.

The new Picnic Punch at @starbucks is super refreshing and a great beverage to try on your next trip to Disney Springs! It’s a pineapple matcha with strawberry purée cold foam. #disneysprings #waltdisneyworld #starbucks #disneyfood

Picnic Punch is now being mixed up at Starbucks in Disney Springs. Try it while the summer flavors last!

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

From iced beverages to chicken wings, we’ve been tasting our way around new menu items at Disney Springs!

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

Wine Bar George

And when we saw a new addition to the menu at Wine Bar George, we had to swing by to give it a try!

So, what’s the new addition?? Wine Bar George is now offering a Fried Fish Sandwich! Served on a brioche bun, this sandwich includes pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, and gribiche sauce. It also comes with a side of fries.

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George

We thought the fish itself was AMAZING! The breading is light and buttery and the fish is tender and flaky. Sliced, unripe tomatoes line the bottom of the sandwich while fresh grape tomatoes lie on top.

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

The gribiche sauce was super tangy, and we would say it’s an acquired taste — it definitely added a lot of flavor to the sandwich! And the pickles paired well with the sauce! We did notice that the sandwich was really messy to eat.

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

Eating it can get a little messy…

The fries were also delicious! Generously salted and spiced, they were a filling addition to the meal. You can snag this sandwich for $16 at Wine Bar George in Disney Springs.

Review! This New Starbucks Guava Passionfruit Drink we Spotted in Disney World is Pretty in Pink!

Starbucks recently debuted a new Guava Passionfruit drink — and we had to give this pretty pink drink a try!

Review! This New Starbucks Guava Passionfruit Drink we Spotted in Disney World is Pretty in Pink!

Starbucks in Disney Springs

While walking around Disney Springs, sometimes we need a cool beverage to keep us refreshed. And we’ve tried all kinds of fun, summery drinks at Starbucks, like the Campfire Cold Brew and Picnic Punch!

We stopped by Starbucks in Disney Springs for a drink this afternoon, and we noticed a sign advertising three new beverages made with coconut milk. We’ve already tasted the Pineapple Matcha Drink and Golden Ginger Drink, so we had to give the Guava Passionfruit Drink a try!

Review! This New Starbucks Guava Passionfruit Drink we Spotted in Disney World is Pretty in Pink!

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs Arendelle Aqua Punch

Are you ready to head ”Into the Unknown”? If you don’t know already, we’re talking about a drink that would satisfy Queen Elsa herself: Arendelle Aqua Punch! This drink is available at The Daily Poutine at Disney Springs, so whether you are in the mood for some fries or just looking to cool down, this is a great time to stop over!

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs

The beverage is an adults-only alcoholic cocktail, so don’t get your kids too excited about the pretty new Elsa drink (think Olaf’s ”When I’m older”). It’s filled with Coconut Rum, Peach Schnapps, Blue Curaçao, and fresh fruit juices. The taste is very light overall, almost like a flavored lemonade, and it is very fruity! It’s not overly sweet, nor does it taste heavily of alcohol. The abundance of ice makes it a great choice for cocktail-lovers who also want a reprieve from Orlando’s summer heat (”Some Things Never Change”). Olaf would approve.

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs

The most fun part about this drink may just be the marble effect that it has. Though tricky to catch in photographs, the Arendelle Aqua Punch is shiny like a calming bottle and the color is bright blue, giving the impression that it mimics Elsa’s famous dress. This is definitely one for your Instagram account!

Try the Arendelle Aqua Punch over at The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs! It’s got coconut rum, blue curaçao, and fresh fruit juices, besides which it’s a beautiful color! #disneysprings #disneylife #waltdisneyworld #chipandco

A post shared by Chip and Co (@chipandco) on Jun 30, 2020 at 10:20am PDT

The drink costs $13 before tax and is a great icy treat for anyone over 21. Head on over to Disney Springs and enjoy responsibly!

Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care! Disney Cruise Line’s Mermaid Tail Cookie Recipe is Perfect for All Sea Dwellers!

Ahoy, swashbuckling pirates and mermaids! Grab your beach towel and your flip flops! #DisneyCruiseLife at Home just dropped a mind-blowing cookie recipe to add to your summer to-do list.

Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care! Disney Cruise Line’s Mermaid Tail Cookie Recipe is Perfect for All Sea Dwellers!

You’ll be singing sea chanties while you mix up these mouth-watering Mermaid Tail Cookies! No need to make your own crustacean *ahem* creation, we’ve got the recipe for you right here!

Follow along with the recipe from Disney Family below and make a splash with these yummy treats! While you’re at it, don’t forget to try this Chocolate Soufflé recipe or these Guava Glazed Ribs recipe from Disney Cruise Line too! We think these recipes are perfect for going under the sea.

Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care! Disney Cruise Line’s Mermaid Tail Cookie Recipe is Perfect for All Sea Dwellers!

© Disney

Ingredients

  • Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • Flour
  • Rolling pin
  • Wax paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Cooling rack
  • Kitchen knife
  • White cookie icing
  • Candy necklaces or other small candies
  • Colored sugar (optional)
  • Food decorator pens (optional)

Helpful Tip

If the store-bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes during baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.

Directions

  1.  Print the template from the Disney Family website and cut it out. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness, then use the template and a knife to cut out mermaid tail cookies. Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and let them cool.
  2.  Working with one cookie at a time, spread cookie icing on the tail fin. Then spread more icing on a 2-inch section of the tail just above the fin and gently press candies into it, arranging them close together to resemble scales. Continue frosting and decorating the rest of the tail a section at a time until you reach the top. Or, you can simply sprinkle colored sugar on the icing in place of the candy.
  3.  Set the cookies aside until the icing hardens. Then use food decorator pens to embellish the tail fins with colorful lines, if you like.

There you have it! We think these cookies are fit for a Mermaid Princess! Plus, they are the perfect substitution for all the Mermaid Cupcakes that we miss so much. These cookies should tie us over until we make it back to Magic Kingdom!

If You Haven’t Tried This Chocolate Soufflé, You’re Missing Out!

Now more than ever, we’re looking for ways to bring the magic of Disney into your home. We recently brought you a virtual viewing of one of our most popular Broadway-style shows, and in today’s installment of #DisneyMagicMoments, we are showcasing one of my personal favorites – Palo!

If You Haven’t Tried This Chocolate Soufflé, You’re Missing Out! Chocolate Soufflé at Palo

The Italian-inspired  Palo restaurant  aboard each  Disney ship offers a superlative dining experience reserved exclusively for adults. Guests are invited to indulge in a menu of delectable modern Italian cuisine, coupled with a sophisticated atmosphere and superior service. But while Palo may be reserved for adults, here is a way to bring a taste of this experience to the entire family – make your own chocolate soufflé at home!

Palo Chocolate Soufflé
Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing the soufflé cups
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, plus more for dusting the soufflé cups
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa
  • 2 ounces (2/3 cup) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Vanilla Sauce (recipe follows)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Set a full kettle of water on to boil.
  3. Butter six 4-ounce soufflé cups and coat with sugar; set aside.
  4. Bring the milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cocoa to the butter and beat with a whisk to a smooth, paste-like consistency. Reduce heat and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add the hot milk, whisking until smooth, then blend in melted chocolate. Let cool for 5 minutes, then stir in egg yolks.
  6. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until frothy. Slowly add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff, glossy peaks form. Stir a heaping spoonful of egg whites into the chocolate, then fold in the remaining whites just until combined.
  7. Pour the batter into prepared soufflé cups. Place cups in a large baking dish and add enough boiling water to reach halfway the sides of the soufflé cups.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, with warm vanilla sauce.

Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 small egg yolks

Directions

  1. Bring cream and vanilla bean to a low boil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Combine sugar and egg yolks.
  3. Add 2 spoonfuls of boiling cream to egg mixture and stir well, then pour back into the remaining cream and continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 3 to 4 minutes.

Of course, the dining experience at Palo doesn’t end with the fine cuisine. Palo is also home to a robust menu of adult beverages, including inventive cocktails and classic reserve wines. The restaurant’s wine list, with 99 percent Italian wines, includes about 90 labels from all regions of Italy, including a sparkling Prosecco, a lush red Barolo made just for Palo, and some of the best Super Tuscans.

One of my favorite beverages at Palo, especially paired with brunch, is the restaurant’s signature Balsamic Grande cocktail. This refreshing drink features vodka, a splash of 5-year-old balsamic vinegar and fresh muddled strawberries. Check out this video to see how you can make it at home.

Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes stories, recipes and other #DisneyMagicMoments coming your way from Disney Cruise Line on the Disney Parks Blog!

Mary Poppins Character Silhouettes

Just bring a photo of your furry friend and the artist can add them to your family’s collection of portraits!

Head to Liberty Square, the France Pavilion in Epcot, or to Disney Springs to find additional silhouette carts!

Purchase Shaq’s shoe!

There are tons of unique, one-of-a-kind merchandise items you can find throughout Disney World. For sports fanatics, you may want to stop into the NBA Experience in Disney Springs next time you visit for the opportunity to ‘score’ some special sports memorabilia!

Go fishing along the waterways of Disney World!

Disney World is home to tons of recreational activities for you and your family to enjoy outside of the theme parks! Non-park days are a great way to recharge and explore everything else that Disney World has to offer!

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

Port Orleans

One activity you can take part in is fishing! Guided catch-and-release fishing excursions are offered on several waterways around the resort, including Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon, Village Lake, Crescent Lake, and even World Showcase Lagoon!

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort

If you don’t have time to head out on a boat, you can rent a casting rod and fish dockside at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside.

Go scuba diving

If fishing doesn’t fit your style and you’re looking for a little bit more adventure, why not swim WITH the fish? You can go scuba diving at The Seas in EPCOT!

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

Hidden Mickey in Epcot

This three-hour class includes 40 minutes in the water, as well as a backstage tour of the aquarium where you’ll learn all about how the team at EPCOT cares for their animals!

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

The Seas with Nemo and Friends

You must be scuba certified before enrolling in this experience.

Get a haircut

Next time you need to get a trim, wait until you’re on vacation and you can get your hair cut at Disney World! Harmony Barber Shop is located on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom and offers appointments for kids AND adults!

Lots of folks may know about kiddos getting their “first haircut” at Disney World, but adults can get their hair cut there, too! Kid haircuts start at $18, and adult haircuts start at $19. Be sure to get some added pixie dust!

Indulge in a manicure & pedicure

If you’re seeking the ultimate relaxation in Disney World, why not get a manicure and pedicure? Several Disney World Resort hotels have full-service spas that are open to anyone, not just guests at that particular resort.

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

In addition to nail salons, you can get massages, facials, and a wide variety of hair services, too! Indulge in ultimate bliss and escape the hustle and bustle of the theme parks by booking a spa package! Call (407)WDW-SPAS to book any services.

(But note, if you’re looking for true luxury, we’d highly recommend using the spa services at the Four Seasons Resort on property in Walt Disney World. Disney World’s spas are OK, but pretty standard fare.)

Take surfing lessons

Ever wanted to learn how to surf? You can do so at Disney World! Surf lessons are available at Typhoon Lagoon on select mornings. Learn how to hang ten from a professional surfer!

Surf lessons cost $199 per person and include a light breakfast and a photo!

Decorate a Christmas tree all year round!

Our next bizarre thing you can do at Disney World can be found at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square. Every morning, the first child in the shop gets to decorate one of the Christmas trees in the store with the ornaments available in the store.

Ten 😄Bizarre😄 Things You Never Knew You Could Do at Disney World

Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe

The decorator’s name is then added to the tree so everyone who goes into the shop that day can see who decorated the tree! If you’re craving the holiday spirit all year round, you can get your fill in Magic Kingdom!

We hope this list gave you some ideas on how to make your next trip to Disney World truly unique! Everyone knows about the four theme parks, but there are TONS of off-the-beaten-path activities that could add that extra bit of magic to your vacation that you should totally take advantage of! If you want to look for even more ideas, check out our video here:

How many of these activities have you taken part in at Disney World? Let us know in the comments!

Be Our Guest Restaurant Removes Breakfast, Now Serving Table Service For Lunch And Dinner

Be Our Guest Restaurant Removes Breakfast, Now Serving Table Service For Lunch And Dinner be our guest

Be our guest to Beast’s enchanted castle!

As we keep getting closer to the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort on July 11th some changes need to be made, including with dining. 

One of the restaurants that is getting modifications is “Be Our Guest” at Magic Kingdom. The first one is getting rid of the breakfast option that many people loved to enjoy before starting their day at the park.

The lunch option also had some changes, it went from quick-service to table-service with an updated menu and price.

The menu is now “prix fixe” and $62 instead of $19 for adults.

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Today was a HUGE day. On top of the Disney World Resorts re-opening, the Disney Park Pass system went live for the first time.

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Disney’s Riviera Resort

However, there’s a lot to keep in mind when it comes to the resorts and the new theme park reservation system.

This week, the Disney Park Pass reservations are only opening up to resort guests with tickets (June 22), Annual Passholders (June 26), and regular ticket holders without resort hotel bookings (June 28). While new tickets and passes aren’t being sold, new Disney Resort reservations also aren’t available either (bummer).

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Grand Floridian Resort Pool

Although you may really miss chilling on your balcony at the Contemporary, Disney made these limitations as a way of prioritizing guests who have existing reservations, tickets, and passes since Disney will need to limit access to the parks due to CDC guidelines, and they’re making sure guests with existing reservations get the first crack at the park pass system.

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Boardwalk Resort

So what if you have a regular Disney World ticket, but no valid resort hotel, and you want to grab your reservations BEFORE the June 28th free-for-all (after all, we’re already starting to see opening days sell out!)? Well, if you get a valid hotel reservation before the 28th, then you’ll be able to book your park passes before they’re open to all ticket-holders.

But the issue is: Disney has halted resort hotel bookings for the time being. HOWEVER, there are several non-Disney-owned hotels that also offer the early park pass booking perk!

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Beach Club Resort in Disney World

On top of the Swan and Dolphin Hotels, Shades of Green Resorts, and Four Seasons Orlando Resort, Disney has direct connections to multiple applicable Good Neighbor and surrounding area resorts. Many of them will provide many of the same perks that the Disney Resorts do and give you access to Disney World privileges that on-property resort guests receive.

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Swan and Dolphin Resort

One of the privileges includes the ability to have primary access to the Disney Park Pass system with an existing hotel reservation. And, some of the resorts are allowing guests to book new stays for the future, so if you already have your tickets but don’t want to wait until the 28th to book your park passes, you might even be able to score Disney Park Pass spots EARLY after making a reservation at one of the hotels in the area. (Thanks to @themeparkmillennial for reminding us of this awesome tip!)

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Four Seasons Resort Orlando

However, keep in mind that it may take up to 72 hours before your resort reservation can be linked into My Disney Experience, so in order to book BEFORE other ticketed guests on the 28th, be sure to book your applicable good neighbor hotel quickly. You’ll need to check with individual resorts to confirm the ability to use Disney Park Pass early before trying to book park reservations with an existing stay or making a new stay.

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Boardwalk Resort

Some of the Bonnet Creek Resorts and Disney Springs Area Resorts listed here may have availability:

  • Hilton
  • Waldorf Astoria
  • B Resort & Spa
  • Best Western (note that this hotel appears to be not accepting new bookings at this time)
  • DoubleTree Suites
  • Holiday Inn
  • Wyndham and Wyndham Garden

This Great TIP Could Be The Key To Getting Your Disney World Theme Park Reservations Early!

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

This can be a BIG DEAL for the guests wanting to visit the parks as soon as possible, especially since Disney hasn’t stated when new reservations will be able to be booked on property. While it may not work for every Good Neighbor and surrounding resort, we definitely recommend looking into the possibility that your existing stay (or maybe even a new one) could be eligible to book Disney Park Pass reservations ASAP.

NEWS: Afternoon Tea, Jiko Wine Tasting, Dessert Parties, and MORE Will Not Be Available When Walt Disney World Reopens

ICYMI, yesterday delivered a LOT of news about special events at Walt Disney World Resort.

NEWS: Afternoon Tea, Jiko Wine Tasting, Dessert Parties, and MORE Will Not Be Available When Walt Disney World Reopens

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

With decisions made to promote safety in light of the current global health situation, it was announced, for instance, that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has been canceled for the fall. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, however, will return — and SOON! (You can read all about it here.)

Of course, these are just two examples of Special Events and unique experiences that are typically available to guests, either as seasonal offerings or year-round enhancements.

NEWS: Afternoon Tea, Jiko Wine Tasting, Dessert Parties, and MORE Will Not Be Available When Walt Disney World Reopens

Afternoon Tea at The Grand Floridian

And — even though we have known for some time that experiences will be modified, with many not offered upon the initial reopening of Walt Disney World — a full list of experiences that will NOT be available upon reopening has been added to the Walt Disney World website. Of course, standing reservations have been canceled for experiences, and the ability to book these experiences has been unavailable since. But we thought this specific list would be helpful for those currently in the planning stages.

Walt Disney World Dining Experiences

Offerings that will not be available include select special Dining Events — ranging from Afternoon Tea at The Grand Floridian to Jiko Wine Tasting and more (such as Dining Packages for select shows and spectaculars) — as listed below:

  • Afternoon Tea at the Garden View Tea Room
  • Cake Decorating Experience at Amorette’s Patisserie
  • Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night
  • Dine with an Animal Specialist
  • Dining with an Imagineer – Cítricos
  • Dining with an Imagineer – The Hollywood Brown Derby
  • Disney Early Morning Magic – Fantasyland
  • Epcot Forever Dining Package
  • Fantasmic! Dining Package
  • Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package
  • Highway in the Sky Dine Around
  • Jiko Wine Tasting
  • Rivers of Light Dining Package
  • Savor the Savanna: Evening Safari Experience
  • Sense of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Signature Celebration at Cinderella’s Royal Table
  • Taste of Magic Kingdom Park VIP Tour
  • Tiffins Talks
  • Victoria & Albert’s Chef’s Table Dinner
  • Wanyama Safari
  • Wonderland Tea Party at 1900 Park Fare

Walt Disney World Dessert Parties

Of course, we have also known that — upon the initial reopening — nighttime spectaculars and parades (essentially, in-park events which lend themselves to large group gatherings) will not be part of the park experience. This naturally affects the availability of Dessert Parties and Dining Packages, which are add-on offerings that include reserved viewing areas for these popular shows.

The Dessert Parties that will NOT be available upon reopening include:

  • Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience
  • Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise
  • Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace
  • Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing
  • Frozen Ever After Dessert Party
  • Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage
  • Rivers of Light Dessert Party
  • Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

As a reminder, Disney has already stated that previously booked experiences that are affected by cancellations will be refunded, and you can read about that here.

We will be taking a look today at additional experiences that will not be available upon the reopening of Walt Disney World, which includes select Tours, Nature Experiences, and more.

In the meantime, to learn more about the upcoming reopening of Walt Disney World Resort — which begins with select Disney Resort hotels on June 22nd, followed by the theme parks starting with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11th and EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th — you can visit any of the links below.

What do you think of these modifications? Please let us know with a comment.

Popular food booths from Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival will be returning including Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean!

We’re also told elements of Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival (which was cut short this year due to the temporary closures) will be “sprinkled in” with the global goodies of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. The new Remy topiary will be out in the France pavilion and Flower & Garden merchandise will also be for sale. So…this will basically be a hybrid Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festival…which is kind of awesome!

A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival starts July 15th

Many fans have questions on the upcoming festivals at Walt Disney World. With the many changes that are changing the way we visit the theme parks today, Disney has just announced a change to Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival.

As we prepare for the reopening of our theme parks next month, Disney is taking a measured and deliberate approach to their planning that applies appropriate new health and safety measures. They will continue to follow guidance from government and health officials for responsibly operating their theme parks, so they can make the right adjustments to their offerings, including the upcoming fall events.

One staple of the fall season at the Walt Disney World Resort is the annual EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Today, we’re pleased to share that not only have we cooked up a creative, modified festival experience, it will also be our longest festival yet – giving you plenty of time to enjoy “A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!”

A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival starts July 15th

This new take on the foodie festival will debut July 15 and continue through the fall, offering over 20 signature global marketplaces like Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean, spaced out around the park. And, if you’ve ever imagined a world where the floral fun of Flower & Garden is sprinkled in with the global goodies of Food & Wine, here’s your chance – guests will be able to see our newest topiary, Remy, in the France pavilion and find Flower & Garden merchandise. For scavenger hunt fans, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt returns. And stay tuned as Food & Wine merchandise joins the fun later on after the festival begins.

We know the popular musical acts during the “Eat to the Beat Concert Series” often pack the house and, in an effort to accommodate proper physical distancing, we will not be able to host these concerts this year. There will be plenty of music to enjoy at America Gardens Theatre with local EPCOT entertainment such as Mariachi Cobre, the JAMMitors and more. These fan favorites will spread out their performances throughout the day, giving audiences more options to enjoy them.

This New Disney World Cookie Already Has Undergone a HUGE Change!

Earlier this week, we were truly shaken to our core when we found out The Polite Pig in Disney Springs was no longer selling the famous Gideon’s Bakehouse Cookie! THE HORROR!

R.I.P. Gideon’s Cookies at The Polite Pig!

Of course, we later found out WHY, and also much to our relief, The Polite Pig began offering its own replacement: hence the Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookie was born!

But ever since the new cookie debuted at The Polite Pig, the results have been a mixed bag. Some people thought its over-the-top chocolate-chip-to-cookie-ratio was similar to a Gideon’s Bakehouse Cookie!

Even though the recipe is completely different from Gideon’s (it has BOURBON in it, people!) the cookies still looked pretty similar! The Polite Pig has since changed their recipe, and they’ve now swapped the chocolate chips for chocolate rock candies instead!

They’ve also, rather cleverly, changed the treat’s name to the Bourbon on the Rocks Cookie!

As you can see, it now looks VERY different from a Gideon’s Bakehouse Cookie. Taste-wise it’s exactly the same Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookie we tried earlier this week — minus the chocolate chips, of course!

Bourbon on the Rocks Cookie

Our cookie was especially gooey and ate more like cookie dough. But it still had plenty of salt flakes sprinkled over the top to balance some of that sweetness. The Bourbon on the Rocks Cookie costs $5 and will be available all day long or until it sells out! We’ll be VERY interested in finding out what you guys think of them this time around!

Let us know if you’re looking forward to trying out the new Bourbon on the Rocks Cookie in the comments below!
