T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Inside Baseline – WDW’s Newest Beer Spot!

BaseLine Tap House opened last month in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios – and I personally was THRILLED to hear the news – a cool spot to grab a craft beer and awesome pretzel – I’m in!

Check it out:

Baseline6

(You may have noticed I included the pretzels twice – that’s not a mistake – that’s just how good they look – I had to give them double props!)

Ok, truth be told I am not much of a beer fan myself – but my husband is – so much so that I am excited for him – to have a place to go and check out beers that he otherwise might not get to try is the perfect vacation activity! Lucky for me – they serve wine too (score!)

Can’t wait to check this place out when we head to Disney World next year!

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:

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

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!

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!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On “Be Our Guest”

As you probably already know, last weekend the new Beauty And The Beast Live Action movie was released in theaters. I was lucky enough to get to go see it, and I loved it – the characters were amazing – especially the beast! The movie will bring about a whole new generation of Beauty And The Beast lovers – and Disney World is more than prepared for that! When they re-designed Fantasyland, they included a restaurant themed after the movie called “Be Our Guest” – and it is basically like walking into the movie! Check it out:

Be Our Guest Restaurant Rose GalleryBOG3BOG4BOG5BOG6

BOG2

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a French-themed menu, featuring items like Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese sandwich), Tuna Nicoise Salad, and of course – “The Grey Stuff” is offered on the dessert menu (try your hand at making your own Grey Stuff At Home!)

While it is labeled as a “Quick Service” Restaurant, I would recommend making a reservation if you’re planning to head here – as the lines can be insane, and it will only get busier with the release of the new movie! I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m in WDW!

TGIF!
