The Tasty Treats at WDW!

Okay, so there is NO way I could eat all of the treats at Walt Disney World!  There are just too many to choose from sometimes.  But, I have had a few that have really stood out!  So, I am going to share a few of those with you!

Starring Rolls Disney's Hollywood Studios Butterfinger Cupcake

Butterfinger Cupcake

First up, is the absolutely delicious and very rich Butterfinger Cupcake served at Starring Rolls in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!  The cupcake was moist and soft while the topping had the taste and crunch of a Butterfinger candy bar.  It was quite a mix of flavors on the tongue!  It is a very rich cupcake and could easily be shared by two or three people.

Next, is the Cinnamon Roll at The Magic Kingdom!  The roll is gooey and fresh!  The taste of cinnamon is nice and strong, for a true cinnamon lover!  And, the icing completely covers the roll and even consumes the plate!  The only one I have had, to date, is the one from the Main Street Bakery (now a Starbucks).  It is my understanding that you now must go to Gaston’s Tavern and that the icing is a different flavor.  I must get this on my next visit!

The No Way Jose', Beaches and Cream Disney's Beach Club Resort

And, one more, just because it is my current FAVORITE treat!  It is a bit pricey, but OOOOOHHHHH So Good!!  Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, the No Way Jose’!  This wonderful creation of Ice Cream perfected is found only at Beaches and Cream, at Disney’s Beach Club Resort!  If you LOVE Peanut Butter, (and I do!), you will love this huge sundae!  You may want to plan on it being one of you meals!  Keep in mind, however, that Beaches and Cream now requires an ADR for sit-down service!

There are many, many, MANY more treats to talk about!  Such as: Disney Parks Popcorn, Mickey Ice Cream Bars, Mickey Krispy Treats, and anything from the Goofy Candy Co., but that is for another time!

Please feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments section below!  And, as always, have a Blessed and Magical day, my friends!!

Trip Report: Art of Animation, Earl of Sandwich, and Beaches and Cream

Greetings from Lion King Family Suite 6626 at the Art of Animation in the Walt Disney World Resort Complex. I wish I could say that our trip began smoothly, but it did not happen quite that way. We has a small mechanical glitch with our van, that should someone had thought to tell me over the phone, would have gotten us on the way on schedule and saved me a lot of frustration! But, things worked out and WE ARE HERE!

2013-12-04 13.11.13

Our approach to the Art of Animation brought ooo’s and ahhhh’s from everyone in the vehicle. The first glimpse of the grounds is stunning to the eye. And, that huge sign let’s you know you ARE in the right place. My wife and rest of the family brought the van around and began unloading, and gave me permission to wander around for a little bit. I took my time and really enjoyed the Nemo and Lion King areas as I meandered to my room. So far, MagicBands are doing what they are supposed to do.

Hello, AOA!

Once we got settled two of the most special ladies in all the earth accompanied me to Downtown Disney via Disney Transport for lunch at Earl of Sandwich. This was my first exposure to this particular counter service restaurant, and I was NOT disappointed by any means! My girls shared a BLT sandwich and a BBQ Chicken Salad while I got a standard Ham and Swiss with Mustard Sauce. May I say, my sandwich was ANYTHING but standard! It was terrific!

After a few minutes of down time, we headed to Disney’s Beach Club Resort and an encounter with the infamous Beaches and Cream. Some of us just ordered Ice Cream as dinner while others order sides with their Ice Cream to round out an completely unbalanced meal. My son gave his all to the long promised Kitchen Sink, but alas he was unable to overfill his tummy! My wife and I both gave the No Way Jose our best effort, as well. Maybe we were just tired from the long, marathon of a drive, but we just couldn’t be triumphant over those, either! NEWSFLASH!!! Beaches and Cream will become and ADR required restaurant beginning December 18. Reservations are available online or at 407-WDW-DINE.

This was dinner!

After a walk around the Boardwalk, it was time to retire back to our room. All-in-all we had a very nice beginning to our vacation!

Tomorrow: Magic Kingdom Park followed by ‘Ohana!
