T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fall Is OFFICIALLY Here!

A few weeks ago I wrote about how pumped I was for the Fall Season to begin at Walt Disney World – and while that might have been a bit premature with it barely being September and all – now I can say with certainty that fall is TRULY upon us (it officially started yesterday!) so that means all things FALL are HERE (whether you like it or not, ha!)

WDW’s Magic Kingdom is all dressed up for fall – and even if you aren’t a fall fan, you can surely appreciate the awesomeness of this photo – creepy, spooky, and full of fall flair! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing, and let’s just say that fall is a great time to head to Walt Disney World – the food, décor, merchandise and overall spirit of autumn are all in the air!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “So Basic I Can’t Even”

Perhaps you have heard of the term “Basic White Girl” – and if you haven’t, I can school you on it – it’s your typical fall-loving, pumpkin spice latter drinking, apple picking, scarf wearing gal who just adores everything about fall and all that goes with it. Maybe the term might offend some, but I personally find it to be funny, and truth be told I am about as Basic as they come. I LIVE for fall, and the unveiling of all things fall at Disney is something I look forward to every year. And now that it is September, I feel like I can OFFICIALLY be excited about fall – and all the great ways Disney brings it to life:

There’s the fall décor that springs up everywhere you turn at the Parks

And then there’s the seasonally themed treats for sale at all the Disney Parks, too!

 And for those of us not lucky enough to be headed to Walt Disney World this fall, we can take solace in the fact that the Disney Store has a nice big Halloween Section – full of amazing costumes and décor and other fun stuff you can use at home to make this the BEST FALL EVER!!

Ok – sorry – got a little excited there – can’t help it – it’s the basic girl in me!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My Three Favorite (Disney World!) Things

There is SO MUCH to love about Walt Disney World – I could go on for days about everything that is great about it (ok – well – I DO go on and on technically that’s what this blog is all about – me expressing my undying love for Disney – but that’s neither here nor there).

When I really sit down and think about it, there are a few things that stand out for me, that really make the Disney World experience that much more magical:

MainStreetCastle.jpg

The CASTLE – that first glimpse of Cinderella’s Castle always always brings a little bit of a tear to my eye – I am just overcome with emotions – happiness, wonder, that feeling of being a kid again, gratitude – knowing how lucky I am to get to see this sight again – just means the world to me

Waffle

Mickey Waffles – I talk a LOT about The FOOD at Walt Disney World – and with good reason – there’s a lot to say about it! There are so many options to choose from when it comes to dining at Disney – and I can honestly say I have never had a “bad” meal – everything is always delicious and freshly prepared. The one food I come back to time and time again is the Mickey Waffle – served up at many different locations around the Parks and Resorts, these come in mini and large sizes, and are always served up hot – crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. They taste amazing, and are shaped like everyone’s favorite Mouse! Oh – and if you like the idea of food shaped like a Mouse but aren’t a waffle fan – check out some other Mickey Shaped Food Options (But I mean really – who doesn’t like waffles?)

HauntedMansion

The Haunted Mansion – This is one of my favorite rides in all of WDW – and the reason why it makes the list of “Top 3 favorite Disney things” is that my husband loves it just as much as I do – so sharing this ride with him is one of my all-time favorite Disney memories. From the deadpan cast members, to the cheesy yet creepy effects – it’s just amazing for us horror-movie loving fanatics!

 

It may seem silly, but for me, it wouldn’t be a perfect Disney trip without these 3 things – and I can’t wait to make even more memories of these and all the other things that make Disney great with my little man!

What about you – What are YOUR favorite WDW things?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – So Many Disney Cakes, So Little Time

I have written before (multiple times) about the amazing Desserts you can find at Walt Disney World – and I make no excuses for my behavior – as I LOVE desserts and have a huge sweet tooth. Clearly I am not the only one out there who looks forward to the post dinner sweets more than the dinner itself – as the Disney Moms Panel recently wrote about where to get the best Sweet treats at Walt Disney World – which got me thinking about CAKE – and just how many amazing ones they are making at WDW every single day:

sharing-cakepop.jpg

There’s the cake pops – in all colors and flavors, with their moist cake-y centers and marshmallow ears (how else would you make that classic Mickey shape?!). Share if you’re willing – but no one would judge if you wanted it all to yourself

Pandorafood2

Just last month, Disney debuted the brand new Pandora: World Of Avatar, and they offer some amazing new food there too – including this beautiful Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse, a cream cheese and blueberry creation with passion fruit

CakeChocolate

You’ll find these little chocolate cakes all over the Disney Parks – generally at Counter Service restaurants (most of them have this on the menu). It may seem just kind of unassuming, even boring – but believe it or not, it’s pretty darn delicious! Moist chocolate cake and a flavorful frosting that almost is more ganache-y – this one is a must try for sure

IMG_7091

Oh hello there pumpkin pecan tart (which isn’t exactly a cake but definitely has cake-like qualities) – you are super delicious, and unfortunately only available seasonally around the holidays – booooo

Butterfinger Cupcake.JPG

This here is the definition of “Go big or go home” – The Butterfinger Cupcake – stuffed with chocolate, topped with a mountain of frosting, chocolate shell, and butterfinger pieces – it’s seriously amazing and awe-inspiring (available at Starring Roles in Hollywood Studios)

Ok – now that I am sufficiently starving after writing that and looking at those amazing cakes – I am off to start my weekend – in search of cake, of course, and you should do the same, hey, it’s Friday – you’ve earned it!!!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ice Cream Season Is Upon Us!

Ok – before you ask – YES – Ice Cream Season is a real thing – very very real. It’s when the weather gets unbearably hot – and sticky, and humid – and the ONLY cure comes in the form of ICE CREAM-Y GOODNESS!

Ice Cream Baby.jpg

My son is a BIG fan of ice cream season (in case you couldn’t tell!)

The summer months here in Upstate NY where I live can be HOT HOT – humid and wet and just unpleasant – but we can’t hold a candle to what they deal with down south in Florida!

ponchos

Ponchos are a must when traveling to Disney in the summer – don’t want to get caught in the rain without one!

If you decide to head to Walt Disney World in the summer months – I bid you much luck – as the crowds can be intense, and it rains most days (better remember your ponchos!), and it’s HOT HOT HOT all the time – with humidity that is so thick it can be cut with a knife.

mickeybar.jpg

While it may not be ideal for some travelers, luckily – ice cream season is in FULL SWING at Disney World in the summertime. Aside from the iconic Mickey Ears Ice Cream bar, here are some awesome ice cream-y treats you can cool off with at Disney:

IceCream

My husband and I love going to get the Gold Rush Sundae from the Ghiradelli Ice Cream shop in Disney Springs – it has freshly made chocolate and peanut butter sauces – and while we normally share it I could easily finish off one of my own any day

DoleWhip

Ah, the Dole Whip – a frozen treat so iconic it has an almost cult-like following – and with good reason! Pineapple flavored soft serve, alone or paired with pineapple juice for a delicious float – it really is the perfect treat on a hot day

KitchenSinkBig

Beaches And Cream is home to this ULTIMATE Ice Cream Dessert – The Kitchen Sink – which comes with tons of ice cream, toppings, and even a WHOLE CAN of whipped cream! It’s made to serve 4 people, but you can definitely split it among more than that (especially if some are kids!)

KitchenSinkMini

Now, if you aren’t up to eating an entire sink’s worth of ice cream – there’s a miniature version available at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor – and the best part is you get to take the little sink home with you!!!!

 

There are really like hundreds of amazing Ice Cream treats at Walt Disney World – these are just a few of the best – and even though summer isn’t my favorite time to visit Disney, I would still go there during those months if I could – just to get my hands on these amazing treats!

What about you – how do YOU cool off in the hot summer heat?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Land Means New FOOD!

I recently wrote about the newest expansion opening this week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Pandora: The World Of Avatar – an immersive land that includes new rides and attractions, and it of course also includes new FOOD (which, if I’m being honest, is about 75% the reason I would even go anywhere ever – is for the food)

Check out what Pandora has to offer for your palette:

PandoraFood1

“Pods” – Steamed buns filled with either a cheeseburger mixture or vegetable curry, and served with root veggie chips and a veggie slaw. At breakfast time you can get them filled with eggs, bacon and spinach!

Pandorafood4

“Build Your Own” Bowls start with a base of quinoa, potato hash, rice, or kale salad, and then topped with a protein – beef, chicken, fish, or tofu, and the sauce of your choice – onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette, or herb dressing

Pandorafood2

This amazingly beautiful dessert is a blueberry cream cheese mousse topped with passionfruit curd

PandoraFood3

I am a big fan of boba – the little gelatin like balls found in bubble tea – so I will definitely want to try one of these new frozen drinks!

I can’t wait to see and do everything that Pandora has to offer – and I am especially looking forward to all the TASTES it will have to share, too!
