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?

TGIF!

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.

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!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A Little #FBF – And Why I Love WDW

My husband says to me the other day “can you believe it’s been almost 7 years since we got married?” – and I really can’t – the time has flown by in a blur of love, laughter, fun, and trips to DISNEY of course! We went to Walt Disney World together for the first time on our honeymoon – it was hot, humid, and super crowded – but it was one of the best times I have ever had!

So today’s TGIF post is brought to you by me and my husband’s first ever trip together to the Most Magical Place On Earth:

When people ask me “Why do you love Disney so much – what’s so great about it?” It’s hard to put into words – it’s the sights, the sounds, the smells, the atmosphere – the rides, the food – it’s just such an amazing place with something everyone will love – and it will make you feel like a kid again (something we can all use once in a while!)

Happy Flashback Friday – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cheers To The Weekend!

I don’t know about you, but I am VERY glad that we have reached the end of the work week – my household has been particularly busy lately as we prepare to sell our house and buy a new one, so by the time Friday comes around lately – I have been MORE than ready to relax and unwind – and what better way to do that than to enjoy a deliciously refreshing adult beverage?

While I wish more than anything I could be back at WDW enjoying these amazing restaurants and drinks, I will settle for just a chance to put my feet up and spend time with my favorite men (big, little, and dog!)

TGIF – and Cheers!
