T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – I’m Just Here For The Food

Ok – I know I talk a TON about the FOOD at Walt Disney World – and with GOOD REASON – they have the best food on the planet – seriously. They really go above and beyond in every category when crafting the Disney Guest Experience – but the cuisine is one of the areas in which I take particular pleasure – I love checking out all the new snacks and themed items they have come up with every time I am in WDW

It may only be August, but Disney is already planning for the upcoming season – the BEST one of all, FALL, and they are already creating some amazing items for HALLOWEEN too – FOOD items that is:

Halloweenfood1Halloweenfood2Halloweenfood3Halloweenfood4Halloweenfood5

From a “Not so Poison Apple” cupcake, to a spider web-themed Mickey Cinnamon Roll, to Pumpkin cheesecake, Haunted Mansion Themed “graves” full of dirt and worms, and amazing collectible popcorn buckets – plus many more – your taste buds will no doubt delight in these spooky snacks!

These amazing treats are only available during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (running on select evenings at the Magic Kingdom now through October) – and personally I think the chance to check these out is worth the price of a ticket to the party. But then again, I am partial to snacks – so I would love to know what YOU think – are you headed to the Party to sample some of these treats?
Check out the full listing (complete with drool worthy pictures) Here

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mouth Watering Treats Await At Aristocrepes

I am always ALWAYS up for a new Disney World snack – the food at WDW is in fact the thing I am MOST excited about for our trip next month – and if you think that’s weird – then you obviously haven’t experienced all that Disney has to offer in the world of cuisine – they serve it ALL – all types and all styles of food, and the snacks are TO DIE FOR – seriously. I just discovered ANOTHER to add to my list – the bubble waffles at Aristocrepes in Disney Springs! Check out these beauties:

strawberry-bubble-waffle-aristocrepes-august-2018-1-450x600

The bubble waffles come in strawberry and Salted caramel varieties, and the stand also sells sweet and savory crepes (hence the name!)

The ONE drawback to this spot is that it doesn’t open until 4pm on weekdays (noon on weekends so yay for that!). Check out all the info here

What about you – will you make the trip to Aristocrepes for a bubble waffle? I know I will be doing so next month!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rainforest Café – Yay Or Nay?

In preparation for our Disney World trip (coming up in a mere 58 days!!!), I have been doing a little “light” reading – The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2018 – and when I say light I really mean anything but – it’s a thick book full of mostly text, 864 pages jam packed full of anything and everything you need to know before heading to WDW (and some things you didn’t know you needed to know, too!)

Knowledge wise – a lot of what’s in the book is stuff I already know, but it’s great to brush up on the things that are new since the last time I went (almost 5 years ago eek!). One thing I came across in my reading that I am hoping to check out in person for the first time is the Rainforest Café

Ok – I know – it’s not exactly a “Disney original” restaurant, and the food is probably nothing special, etc etc – believe me, I have heard it all (mostly from my husband who has thus far refused to go, since there are so many more Disney unique places to dine), BUT – bottom line is, I think our son would LOVE IT:

Even the entrance is fun – all the trees and you can see the Elephant check in desk from outside

The bar is my favorite – I see many photo ops in my future involving these stools

A bar with animal seats, giant trees, animals everywhere – what’s not to love? Oh – and the kid’s menu items go along with the theme too – “Jusassic chicken tidbits”, “Gorilla grilled cheese delight”, “Lava Mud” dessert, and the list goes on

Ok so – maybe it’s a bit tacky, and unoriginal (since it is a chain restaurant), but – who cares? It looks fun, and I figure – we will go by it as we leave Animal Kingdom around lunch time, and if there’s not much of a wait, why not give it a go? It will be fun for the kid, and hey, they serve alcohol, so it will be fun for us adults too (kidding!)

What about you – have you tried either of the Disney World Rainforest Café locations? What did you think?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Incredible Tomorrowland Expo” Flies Into The Magic Kingdom!

In honor of Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 – which hits theaters June 15th – Disney has gone all out – celebrating all things Incredible and Super – hero that is! With their Incredible Tomorrowland Expo on now through the summer at The Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland

The experiences include interacting with the movie’s stars, theming and music, and all things Super Hero! Oh, and then there’s the food:

Inc2Inc1Inc 3

Tomorrowland food vendors have all gotten in on the action too – with Incredible-Themed menu items to celebrate! Pictured above we have Edna Mode’s “No Capes, Just Crêpes” Crêpe Sundae, Mrs. Incredible Pretzel Mask (topped with black salt!), and the Super Stretchy Burger (featuring Mozzarella sticks)

Disney had this to say about this celebration: “Thanks to The Incredibles, the world has once again embraced the Supers! So, in honor of all the good Super Heroes do, Tomorrowland presents the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo—where you’ll have the chance to interact with Mr. Incredible, Frozone, Mrs. Incredible and, for the first time, Edna Mode!”

Sounds like a great time to me! I loved the Incredibles and can’t wait to see the new one – I plan on taking my dad, husband, and son to it for Father’s Day – how about you – will you head to the theaters in a few weeks to see the Incredibles 2?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – What I Miss The Most

I cannot WAIT to head to Walt Disney World in September – not only will it be my son’s first trip there, but it will be our first time going since Christmas 2013. Yeah – it will have been over FIVE YEARS since we have been to WDW – and there are SO MANY things I miss about it – but here are the things I miss the most:

The Characters – I don’t care how old you are, a hug from your favorite Disney character is always a great feeling!

The Shopping: Ears galore, shirts, bags, mugs, magnets – and about a million other awesome Disney themed souvenirs to browse and buy

IMG_0192

The FOOD: Sweet, savory, and everything in between – Disney has the BEST FOOD EVER ON THE PLANET – I love it all – but I am particularly partial to the baked goods – cupcakes, cake pops, breakfast pastries, funnel cakes, churros – you name it, I miss it and can’t wait to eat one (or more!) of everything!

The MAGIC: It’s hard to put into words, but this is definitely the thing I miss most – that feeling you get when you walk down Main Street, or when you notice a hidden Mickey in the sidewalk stones – if you’re never experienced it, you should – it’s worth waiting for, and it’s worth every penny and hour spent planning and traveling. It’s worth it ALL and then some
