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.

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

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!

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.

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

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

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.

Are Some Disney Restaurants Changing from Buffet to Family Style?

Are Some Disney Restaurants Changing from Buffet to Family Style? disney restaurants

We reported earlier today that more Disney Cast Members will be returning to work and which locations they are returning too. Most are Disney restaurants. We noticed that some of those restaurants which are buffet style had the words ‘family style’ in parenthesis next to the restaurant name.

Two of the restaurants listed were Chef Mickey’s and Biergarten. These restaurants are normally buffet style where guests serve themselves. The ‘family style’ next to them could mean that they will no longer allow guests to serve themselves. Cast Members would bring guests food to their table on platters much like restaurants such as Ohana and Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue.

Disney has already shared that self serve changes will be implemented at Disney World. It was previously announced that beverages and other items that are usually self-serve will instead be served by Cast Members.

Keep in mind this is all speculation as Disney has not released an official statement regarding these restaurants switching from buffet style to family style.

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs Gideon's Bakehouse

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs

One of our favorite places to find some sweet treats in Orlando is Gideon’s Bakehouse, which is why we so excited to share this small, award-winning bakery is opening a new location in The Landing at Disney Springs!

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs

Anticipating to open later this year, Gideon’s is best known for small-batch, handmade, almost half-pound cookies and cakes. Not only does their size make these cookies so special, Gideon’s brings its own spin to cookie flavors like Peanut Butter Crisp, Cookies & Cream and my absolute favorite, Pistachio Toffee Dark Chocolate.

“This opportunity is truly a dream come true and will allow us to flex all of our creative muscle in both desserts and décor. We’re passionate, inspired, and ready,” said Steve Lewis, owner and creator of Gideon’s Bakehouse.

We are pleased to share that Gideon’s Bakehouse, a small award-winning bakery in Orlando, is coming to The Landing at @disneysprings and bringing their famous small-batch cookies that weigh in at almost a HALF POUND each! Yum! Find out more on the blog (link in bio).

A post shared by Disney Parks Blog (@disneyparksblog) on Jun 17, 2020 at 6:07am PDT

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs

Gideon’s plans to bring an expanded menu of cookie and cake slices to Disney Springs, plus add its own line of unique iced coffees, like the Original Peanut Butter Iced Coffee. Of course, guests can expect to find their favorite cookie flavors along with new and limited editions offered during special daily releases. The ever-popular Coffee Cake Cookie (previously only available one month a year) will be on sale every morning, with a Hot Cookie Hour each evening for those looking to cure a sweet tooth after dinner.

“We’re also excited to bring more cake flavors to our new location, offering never-before-seen creations like our special line of Double Frosted Cakes.” Steve said. “There are more than a few secrets we have up our sleeves that you’ll just have to wait to see. It’s not Gideon’s if it isn’t a little dark and mysterious.” We aim to even make the wait in line entertaining by immersing everyone in a transformative environment that will share our story as guests progress toward the counter.”

Gideon’s Bakehouse to Open New Location at Disney Springs

Guests can also look forward to collectible art becoming a part of the product packaging at the new bakery, which will be located in The Landing across from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. The new Gideon’s location is being created with health-and-safety considerations in mind and its operation will model similar guidelines in use elsewhere in Disney Springs.

Be sure to follow Gideon’s Bakehouse on Instagram at @gideonsbakehouse for drool-worthy desserts!

The Coca-Cola Store is located near the Orange Garage in Disney Springs. Those looking to try this delightful cocktail can find it at the Coca-Cola Beverage Bar on the third floor of the Coca-Cola Store. The drink costs $15.00 for the Coca-Cola Brownie Masher.

You can see the Characters in Flight balloon and other amusing sights while you drink on the third floor.

We must say this drink is fantastic for chocolate lovers seeking a unique cocktail. The rum and vodka mix surprisingly well with the taste of chocolate milk. Even the decadent Coca-Cola brownie was perfect for dunking into the ice cream mixture. You won’t be disappointed if you try this sweet beverage!

Indoor Seating Is BACK at This Classic Ice Cream Spot in Disney Springs!

Indoor Seating Is BACK at This Classic Ice Cream Spot in Disney Springs!

Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop

We’ve eaten a ridiculous amount of ice cream from Ghirardelli so far, with the new Gold Rush Sundae and Nacho Sundae (and we don’t even feel sorry about it!), we were happy to find another surprise when we visited today!

Indoor dining was back, baby!!

Ghirardelli previously had closed off its indoor seating and a Cast Member would bring your treats outside to you…

…but now, indoor seating is back open for guests to chill out in the A/C and cool off with some cold treats! Be aware, there isn’t MUCH seating since Ghirardelli is enforcing social distancing measures. So if you go and it’s full, don’t panic! Guests can still sit right outside the shop and enjoy their ice cream.

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes Cake Pops

Today, we are introducing another Disney-inspired dessert based on Disney’s Fantasia. The Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops are a hit at parties and upcoming celebrations. If you want to learn how to create your own, then continue reading below!

Ingredients

  • 1 box cake mix (bake as directed on box for 13 x 9 cake)
  • 1 can (16 oz) of ready made frosting
  • Wax paper
  • Baking sheets
  • White candy coating
  • Blue candy coating
  • Chocolate covered mints (such as Junior Mints)
  • Yellow jumbo star sprinkles
  • Yellow candies (such as Starburst)
  • No. 807 Decorating tip
  • No. 12 Decorating tip
  • Toothpicks
  • Small paintbrush
  • Paper lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam block

One cake mix makes roughly 48 cake pops. You’ll need at least one ounce of candy coating for each cake pop you plan on dipping and more for any extra decorating.

Directions

After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into a large bowl.

With a large spoon, mix cake thoroughly with about 3/4 of the can of frosting. You won’t need the rest.

Roll mixture into quarter size cake balls and place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper.

Once you have rolled the cake balls, you can then re-shape them into cones. Get the shape started by hand molding and then lay the cone shape on the wax paper and roll back and forth gently to help smooth out the shape. You can also rub the bottom side on the wax paper gently to help flatten the bottom.

Place the cone-shaped cake balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up. You can transfer them to the refrigerator to keep chilled and avoid freezing.

While the cake is chilling, you can make moons for the hat. Work with one Starburst candy at a time. Place it in the microwave for just a few seconds to make it more pliable. Then using a small glass or rolling pin, roll the candy flat. To make the moon you can use two small circular edges to cut the shapes. Decorating tips are the perfect size.

Cut out circles with the smaller end of a No. 807 decorating tip, then use the small end of a No. 12 decorating tip to remove another circular shape from inside the larger circle to create moons. Repeat with more yellow candies as needed.
Note: You can also place them on the side of the large tip so they remain slightly curved and therefore easier to attach to the cake pop shape.

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes

Melt white candy coating in a heat-proof plastic bowl so that the coating is at four inches deep for easier dipping. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals on low, stirring in between. Repeat until melted and smooth. Add blue candy color and stir until completely combined and you achieve the desired shade of blue.

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes

Remove a couple of cake balls at a time from the refrigerator to work with.

Dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the melted coating and insert into the bottom of the cone shape. Dip the cake pop into the coating and remove in one motion without stirring. Make sure the entire cone-shaped cake ball is covered. Using a deep bowl is helpful here. If your coating is too thick, you can add a few drops of vegetable oil or shortening to help thin it and make it easier to work with.

Remove and allow any excess coating to fall off the pop and back into the bowl.

Attach a Junior Mint to each side of the hat for Mickey’s ears.

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes

Then, while coating is still wet, attach two star sprinkles and one moon. Place in a styrofoam block to dry. You can also attach the stars and moon after the coating sets by using a toothpick to dot a small amount of coating to use as glue.

Make this at home – Sorcerer’s Hat Cake Pops Recipes

You can wrap your Sorcerer’s Hat cake pops in treat bags tied with a ribbon and/or store them on the counter or in an airtight container.

Let us know if  you make your own cake pops using this recipe!

Vivoli Il Gelato’s Birthday Cake Shake at Disney Springs is a Party in a Cup

Vivoli Il Gelato’s Birthday Cake Shake at Disney Springs is a Party in a Cup Birthday Cake Shake

You’re going to need to be able to handle your sugar for this one. Vivoli Il Gelato just reopened in Disney Springs and they have a sweetness overload waiting for you. Its name is the Birthday Cake Shake. If you’ve never been able to choose between cake and ice cream, this shake is for you!

Vivoli Il Gelato’s Birthday Cake Shake at Disney Springs is a Party in a Cup

The Birthday Cake Shake is aptly named because it wears an entire cupcake on top. The overarching theme seems to be confetti; cake batter gelato forms the base of the shake, with visible specks of rainbow confetti sprinkles throughout, and a plentiful dose of confetti also crowns the cupcake. The shake also has whipped cream and an additional sprinkle of confetti.

Check out this new Birthday Cake Shake from Vivoli Il Gelato at Disney Springs! It is made with cake batter gelato and has an entire cupcake on top! . #chipandco #disneyfood #icecream #waltdisneyworld #disneysprings #vivoliilgelato @disneysprings

A post shared by Chip and Co (@chipandco) on Jun 10, 2020 at 12:35pm PDT

The cupcake isn’t as sweet as a typical bakery cupcake and the frosting on top is light and airy. Vanilla is the biggest flavor hit in the shake, but you may want to ask for a spoon because the confetti sprinkles get trapped in the straw quite a bit! Overall, this is a great shake for kids or families to share. Its bright colors and over-the-top looks make for some cute pictures. That’s if you can wait to dig in!

Vivoli Il Gelato’s Birthday Cake Shake at Disney Springs is a Party in a Cup

Priced at $14.91 including tax, this shake is a pricier option at Disney Springs, but if you plan on sharing, and consider that it is at least two desserts in one, it’s not as steep as it sounds. The shake can be found for a limited time at Vivoli Il Gelato in Disney Springs! Get yours soon!

Donald Duck Cupcake Recipe

Donald Duck Cupcake Recipe Donald Duck

Who gets stuck with all the bad luck?! No one, but Donald Duck!

We can remember this catchy tune being used in the introduction of Donald Duck’s classic cartoon shorts. Fortunately, Donald gets to enjoy being a lucky Duck this week! He first appeared on June 9, 1934. Today, we’ll show you how to make your very own Donald Duck cupcake so you can celebrate at home.

Ingredients

  • Batch of baked cupcakes
  • White frosting
  • Yellow Swedish Fish candies
  • Kitchen knife or scissors
  • Small black jellybeans
  • Tube of black decorating icing

Directions

  1. Frost the cupcakes, using the knife to pull the frosting up into a couple feathery peaks at the top of the head.
  2. For a duck bill, slice a yellow Swedish Fish candy in half lengthwise. Then press the two halves into the frosting, separating them slightly, at the very edge of the cupcake top (opposite the feathery frosting peaks).
  3. For eyes, press two black jellybeans into the frosting. Use the black decorating icing to pipe on curved eyebrows about 3/8 inch above the eyes.

Donald Duck Cupcake Recipe

We hope you enjoy making this Donald Duck cupcake at home! It’s a great way to celebrate his birthday while watching classic Donald Duck cartoon shorts on Disney+ streaming service.

Make Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Donuts at Home

Snow White Donut

Everyone knows that if Snow White could have saved herself a lot of trouble if she’d had a donut instead of that apple. If you’d also like to stay on the safe side but make sure that your snack is the fairest of them all, then try making these ”Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” donuts!
This Disney recipe requires a donut pan and makes 12 baked rings of deliciousness. No need for wishing wells, they’re pretty easy to make!

Ingredients

DONUTS:

  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 Cup whole milk
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • Donut pans
  • Piping or zip-top bag
  • Scissors
  • Toothpick

GLAZE:

  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 Tsp clear vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • Gel food coloring (red, blue, green, yellow, brown, beige)
  • Piping or zip-top bags
  • Toothpicks

DECORATION:

  • Melted dark chocolate
  • Shredded coconut
  • ROYAL ICING (HATS, APPLE STEM & LEAF):
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp meringue powder
  • 1/4 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup warm water
  • Gel food coloring (red, green, yellow, blue, brown, purple)
  • Piping or zip-top bags

DIRECTIONS:

  •  Preheat oven to 350° F.
  •  Spray the donut pans with non-stick cooking spray or coat with melted butter. Set the pans aside.
  •  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.

  •  In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, applesauce, and vanilla extract.
  •  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together until all are combined and no flour clumps remain. Try not to overmix the batter!
  •  Pipe the batter into the donut cavities using a piping or zip-top bag. Cut a corner off the bottom and pipe the batter into each cavity, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

  •  Remove donuts from the oven and allow to cool in the pan before inverting them onto a wire rack. (Tip: To help release the donuts, use a toothpick to loosen the sides.) While they’re cooling, make the glaze.
  •  In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. (If the glaze is too thick, add additional cream-about 1/2 teaspoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached).

  •  Divide the icing into 7 small bowls to make red, beige, brown, green, blue, yellow, and white (leave icing as is for white).

  •  Add food coloring into each bowl, corresponding to each of the character’s clothing. For Snow White and the Dwarfs, dip 1/3 of each into the beige icing for their faces. Then add on a nose with the same beige color, using a toothpick. Spread on the other colors for their clothes with the back of a small spoon.

  •  For the Dwarfs’ beards, pipe white icing then sprinkle shredded coconut on top.

  •  Using melted dark chocolate and a toothpick, draw the faces, belts, and Snow White’s hair.
  •  Make the royal icing: Add powdered sugar, meringue powder, vanilla extract, and water into the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Start mixing on low until incorporated and then beat on medium-high until stiff peaks form (around 5 minutes).
  •  Divide the icing into separate bowls and add the food coloring needed for each detail (hats, bow, and apple leaf/stem). Then use the royal icing to pipe the shapes onto parchment paper (red for Snow White’s bow, green for the apple leaf/stem, and various colors for the hats). Let them dry (takes approximately 1-2 hours). 

  •  Then peel off the parchment. Attach the pieces onto the character donuts with a bit of white royal icing (which acts as glue), and they’re ready to go. Enjoy!

Changes to Disney World Dining when Walt Disney World reopens next month

Changes to Disney World Dining

Here are the Changes to Disney World Dining when Walt Disney World reopens next month…

Changes and Enhancements to Dining

We’re committed to a responsible reopening of Walt Disney World Resort—and we’ve made some important updates and enhancements to our dining experiences based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.

During the reopening period, many dining experiences may be modified or unavailable in order to promote cleanliness and physical distancing.

What You’ll Need

Before you dine at Walt Disney World Resort, please be aware that you’ll need:

  • Face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas—including while entering and exiting dining locations—and can be removed while eating or drinking
  • Planning to dine at a table-service restaurant in a Disney Resort hotel? A confirmed dining reservation is required for day Guests (those not staying overnight) and is highly recommended for Guests staying overnight at a Disney Resort hotel

Also, it’s highly recommended to have:

  • The latest version of the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device, with location services enabled
  • Cashless or contactless forms of payment

In-Park Dining Reservations

At this time, dining reservations are not available. Reservations will resume at a later date.

When in-park dining initially becomes available, you’ll need valid park admission, a reservation for park entry and a dining reservation to dine at an in-park, table-service restaurant. Dining reservations do not guarantee admission to the park.

Disney Springs Dining Reservations

Select dining locations at Disney Springs are currently accepting reservations.

Dining Plans

At this time, Disney dining plans cannot be added to reservations. Check back soon for more information.

Learn about cancellations and refunds for dining plans.

Health and Hygiene

New measures have been implemented across Walt Disney World dining locations to promote health and hygiene, including:

  • Enhanced Cleaning: We’ve increased cleaning in high-traffic areas such as public elevators and escalators, handrails, benches, tables, handles, restrooms and more. Additionally, seating areas, dining areas and pagers will be cleaned between Guests.
  • Reduced-Contact Menus: Menus will be shared in ways to minimize contact. At quick-service restaurants, menus will be displayed on signage. And at table-service restaurants, you can scan a code with your mobile device to access the digital menu.
  • Self-Serve Changes: Beverages and other items that were previously self-serve will instead be served by Cast Members.

Enhanced Technology

Use convenient technologies to minimize your contact with others:

  • Mobile Order Service: A time-saving feature of the My Disney Experience app, mobile order service enables you to order ahead at select dining locations and pick up food during a designated arrival window.
  • Scannable Codes for Select Restaurant Menus: While at a table-service restaurant, you can use your own mobile device to scan a code for access to the digital menu.
  • Cashless Payments: At this time, it is recommended all Guests use cashless payment options, including debit cards, credit cards and Disney Gift Cards. Guests can also opt for contactless payment options—such as mobile wallets—or use cash to purchase a Disney Gift Card at Guest Relations and select merchandise locations. Disney Resort hotel Guests can also use MagicBands to charge their purchase to their Disney Resort hotel folio.

Dining Experiences

Additional changes to Walt Disney World dining experiences include:

  • Menu items may vary. For specific menu information, check the restaurant’s online menu when the restaurant reopens.
  • Character Dining will not be offered during the initial reopening, with the exception of a modified Character Dining experience at Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera.
  • Dinner shows will not be offered during the initial reopening.
  • Dining locations will be limited in capacity. Some locations will remain temporarily closed.
  • Private dining and in-room delivery will not be offered during the initial reopening window.
  • Mobile order service will be offered at select quick-service dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks (when open), Disney Springs and select Disney Resort hotels.

Modifications, Cancellations and Refunds

We understand how much excitement, thought and time goes into planning your visits to Walt Disney World Resort and realize some of these changes may be disappointing. Please know we will be here to help you, as our Cast remains focused on delivering magical experiences and incredible storytelling for everyone who visits.

During this unprecedented period, some of our policies and offerings have been modified:

  • All pre-paid dining and experience reservations impacted by the closure will be automatically refunded.
  • Reservations made at locations impacted by the closure will not be charged a cancellation or no-show fee.
  • We have made the difficult decision to cancel and temporarily no longer offer Disney dining plans. If you have an existing Resort package with a Disney dining plan, we will update your reservation to reflect the removal of the dining plan from your package. The package price will be adjusted accordingly. You will receive a refund if you have already paid in full or a reduction in amount due if you have not yet made final payment.

Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs Reopens with New Safety Measures

Amorette’s Patisserie

No trip to Disney Springs is complete without yummy Disney treats. For some of the best desserts around, there is no better option than Amorette’s Patisserie. However, due to the coronavirus closures, we have been deprived of our favorites baked goods for several weeks. But at last, as of Friday the 5th of June, they have reopened to the public!

Since suspending operations on March 17th, Disney Springs in Walt Disney World began a phased re-opening on May 20 of this year. Select stores and restaurants have been accessible since then, but notable others have remained closed. Amorette’s, on the Marketplace side of the Springs, is now welcoming back customers. They’ve implemented new safety measures for the health of their guests, starting with a masked employee to open entry and exit doors, reducing the need for people to touch handles. If germs on hands are still a concern, hand sanitizing stations are located in front of the entryway.

Upon entering, guests will notice social distancing markers on the floor where they are to line up and order. All employees are masked and gloved, and a partition adds an extra protective layer between Cast Members and customers at pay stations. Aside from that, Amorette’s remains largely the same, offering the same delicious treats we love.

Have you been to Amorette’s Patisserie since reopening? What beautiful dessert(s) will you be ordering first?

NEWS: This Spot Is MISSING in Disney Springs Today!

We’ve been going to Disney Springs every day to bring all the news you need to know (and to get a Froscato, of course).

Disney Springs

While there have been plenty of restaurants and stores re-opening around the shopping and dining district, we couldn’t help but notice that one place had disappeared today!

Although Joffrey’s Coffee is open for guests to grab some Face Coffee, the Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies kiosk on the West Side is gone!

Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies Area

Instead of the kiosk, there are a bunch of plants and shrubs in the area instead.

Where Did Joffrey’s Go??

While the Marketplace kiosk is still open…

Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies

…we’re not sure if the West Side Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies will be returning or if this is just a temporary move!

Missing Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies

Cast Members weren’t sure if the location would be coming back or not, so we’ll keep you updated on whether Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies’ disappearance is temporary or permanent!

We’ve got all the details on how you can drink your Joffrey’s Coffee with a face mask here!

What’s your favorite Joffrey’s drink? Let us know in the comments below!
