DFB Reader Finds
We had a chance to check out all the treats at this year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and there is a special “secret” cookie that you can only get in one spot! DFB fan Penny Stephens says she “hit the jackpot” and got one of the cookies at MVMCP! (Hint: You can find these on the trail to the right of Le Chapeau — they open it up to party-goers only in order to improve traffic flow before the party begins.)
Earlier this year we told you about the new French Fries with Pulled Pork and Cheese at the Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and I just had them again…TWICE…on my recent visit. DFB reader Ashley Cruse tried them recently and declared “DFB was right – these are amazing!” I knew I liked you, Ashley! ;-D
