Although we’ve spent the past few months eating almost nothing but holiday snacks at Disney World, we’re ready to start the New Year off with some returning favorites!
*Note that some of these offerings may be unavailable during the phased reopening of Walt Disney World.
Our love for Disney snacks goes waaaaay back!
In fact, some of our fondest childhood memories from trips to Disney World involve enjoying a sweet (or salty!) treat while strolling through the parks! But which of these eats have withstood the test of time? These are the Disney World snacks we had as a child that we STILL love to this day!
The first quarter of 2019 is complete, and it’s time to get down to business. Of course, we mean cupcakes and the business of our 2019 Cupcake Crawl! But let’s address the buttercream in the room: with only three months under our (cupcake-filled) belts, we’re going to need to come back in a few months with a some new additions — so be on the lookout for the summer’s updated crawl! 😉
Come along as we list cupcakes you’ve got to try (so far!!) in 2019!
Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake
Our first entry in the Cupcake Crawl is a little loaded, and that’s because it’s an old favorite with a slightly new look (and taste!). The Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake (a/k/a the Butterfinger Cupcake) has been a DFB favorite for years. The chocolate cake filled with dense chocolate ganache and topped with peanut butter frosting and crushed Butterfinger really worked for our PB&C obsession. But in January of this year… the Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake disappeared from Trolley Car Cafe! (Read more about that here!) And when it returned recently, the cupcake had a whole new look.
Gone is the massive mountain of frosting covered in plentiful Butterfinger bits, replaced by a moderately sized pile of frosting covered in Butterfinger bits. Gone (maybe?) is the dense chocolate filling — now it’s more of a chocolate sauce filling. [Read more…]
Happy weekend! Here’s all the Disney food news this week — including our full review of the new Mac and Cheese Food Truck in Disney world! First, a few things to remember…
The 2019 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival kicked off March 1 and we have the FULL MENUS here! Oh, and we’ve also got SECRET menu info and reviews for you!
AND – the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge were announced for BOTH Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
Are you among our many likeminded friends who were dismayed to hear that the Butterfinger Cupcake — a longtime snack staple at Disney’s Hollywood Studios — had disappeared from The Trolley Car Café?
If so, then you’ll be thrilled to know that the Butterfinger Cupcake is BACK in The Trolley Car Café bakery case! [Read more…]
The Trolley Car Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is always one of our first stops in the park for either our daily Starbucks, or to satisfy our sweet tooth. This week we were delighted to find four brand new patisserie-worthy pastries in the window at this location.
But, once the excitement over the new pasties settled — we noticed even more big news, with the help of a cast member at the location. Something was missing in the bakery case — something BIG — and it is not only a DFB favorite, but a park-guest and DFB reader favorite.
Hey, guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and I hope you’ve got your sweet tooth ready… because we’re sharing Disney desserts you’ve just GOT to try!
Today is ALL about the sweet stuff in Disney World… and we’re sharing the whole scoop, from what to get and where to get it! Of course, we’re got some longtime classics, like the Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream and the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake at Liberty Tree Tavern. But the sweet fun never stops, so there are tons of new items for you to try, too! There’s no shortage of desserts to add to your must-try list, so check out our video to find our favorites in all four Disney World parks, Disney Springs, and some that you may find in your favorite Resort. Then let us know what you would add to the list! [Read more…]

Why a Second Edition, You Ask?
Say it ain’t so…
Actually, those are the same words that came to mind when Writer’s Stop — a unique little coffee and pastry shop that used to be open in Hollywood Studios — closed a few months ago to make way for construction of the future Toy Story and Star Wars lands.
Only this time, these words apply to yet another beloved pastry stop in Hollywood Studios: Starring Rolls Cafe, located on the intersection of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards.
While Starring Rolls IS open today from 9:00 am – 3:00PM, we were told when we were in the shop recently that starting February 5th, 2017, the location will be shuttered.
Here are the details: Starring Rolls Cafe is, indeed, closed starting tomorrow, February 5th. The Cast Members — who will be moved to other locations — have not been informed as to whether or not the spot will reopen in the future.
Wow. While Writer’s Stop was known and loved primarily for one snack above all else, the Carrot Cake Cookie, but I don’t even know where to begin with Starring Rolls. How can I possibly narrow down from ALL the favorites that have come from Starring Rolls over the years? [Read more…]
