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 – The Disney Things I Miss The Most

Time between vacations can seem like an ETERNITY – and this is ESPECIALLY true for time between Disney trips (because Disney World is the best place EVER to take a vacation, obviously!). Since my son was born, we have talked about taking him to WDW when he is younger but we will likely wait until he is about 4 – which is QUITE a ways away at this point, and I gotta say, there are some Disney things I am missing a LOT right now:

Waffle

Mickey shaped foods just taste better. It’s a tested, tried and true fact – and if you don’t believe me, then you might want to check out some Mickey foods for yourself – like maybe a Mickey Waffle?

MeBags

Shopping. Don’t judge me. I like to shop, and I like to shop at Disney World especially – checking out all the stores and seeing what new merchandise they have, and narrowing it down to see what the few things are I will bring home with me – it’s a ritual, and one that I love

MainStreetCastle

This view of Main Street USA – It’s my fave place in the whole world, and I can’t wait to be back here again!

Selfie

Wearing Mickey ears at work or out at the mall or the park is apparently not normal (ugh) – but wearing them at Disney is the norm, and I miss seeing heads upon heads of Mickey everywhere I look

Most of all, I just miss the feeling I get when I am at Disney – that happiness that I have come HOME. I can’t wait to get back!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mickey Shaped Foods At Home!

One of the best things about visiting Walt Disney World is getting to enjoy all the amazing FOOD they offer at the Parks and Resorts – and while I enjoy trying new things on each trip, there are some that are just classic must-do’s on every visit. The most delicious of them all are the Mickey Shaped Foods – because who wouldn’t want to bite into Mickey’s ear?

If you’ve got that post-Disney withdrawal setting in, or maybe you haven’t been in a while, then maybe you need to make some Mickey shaped foods at home!

This is actually an egg/pancake ring that my husband used to make some awesome chocolate sugar cookies, but it worked great as a cookie cutter too! You can purchase it on amazon

And if you want an actual cookie cutter, Wilton makes a Mickey Cookie Cutter that you can buy at craft stores like Joann’s and Michaels, or places like Target, Walmart, and Party City have them as well

Mickeyfood3

If you’re feeling crafty, you can freehand some Mickey pancakes…

Mickeyfood4

…Or if your pancakes tend to end up looking like blobs (like mine do), then you can always try the Mickey Waffle Maker

I love that I can re-create a little piece of WDW right in my home – and the BEST part is, it’s edible!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Mickey Shaped Foods Make Eating Fun!

I’ve talked before about Mickey Shaped Foods, and for those of you who haven’t tried anything in this iconic mouse shape, and are thinking “um what’s so great about Mickey shaped foods?” – it’s hard to explain. Just try them – they are adorable, and they taste better than regular shaped food (seriously, it’s true!)

The Mickey Bar – a chocolate covered vanilla ice cream treat on a stick. It’s classic, delicious, and perfect for anyone and everyone (but you better make quick work of it on a hot day!)

BigWaffle

Crispy on the outside, warm and soft and yeast-y on the inside (pauses to wipe up drool) – I don’t know of anyone who would turn down

Sharing CakePop

The ears of this Mickey cake pop are actually little marshmallows – isn’t that clever? The cake itself is dense and moist and delicious…hence the sharing that is bordering on a fight to see who will get the last bite…

Pretzel

Soft pretzels are such a great snack – and these Mickey shaped ones are big enough to share too (should you feel so inclined)

You can make your own Mickey Shaped foods at home too – with a Mickey Cookie Cutter, Mickey egg ring, or a Mickey waffle maker (I have all of these, of course – and I even have two Mickey waffle makers!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Free Food? Yes PLEASE!

There are few things that excite the avid Walt Disney World fan as much as the offer of FREE DISNEY FOOD! Disney announced last week that they will be running their popular “Free dining” promotion this fall, which means that if you book a vacation package during the specified dates (September-December), you can add on a Disney Dining Plan for FREE!

Which gets me to thinking…there are so many amazing Disney foods, but there are definitely a few that I absolutely cannot live without:

WaffleMickey Waffles – crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside – I could (and have!) eat 10 of these!

cupcakeThe Butterfinger Cupcake can be found around Hollywood Studios, and it is HUGE – but more than that, it is amazing- moist chocolate cake, whipped fluffy frosting topped with a chocolate shell and butterfinger bits, and a fudge-y surprise center – this is the ultimate snack!

MickeybarOh, and of course – the Mickey Bar – classic, simple, and still delicious and perfect on a hot day (better eat it fast though…nothing worse than a melted Mickey!

 

These are just a few of the amazing foods you could try while enjoying your WDW vacation, complete with free dining plan!

Don’t forget to check out all the Official Details on the free dining promotion – it’s too good to pass up!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Most Important Meal Of The Day!

Walt Disney World has some of the BEST FOOD I have ever had the privelege of tasting – everything is prepared fresh using the best ingredients, and it really shows in the final product.

Breakfast is no exception, they really go above and beyond at the Parks and Resorts to make sure you have plenty of options to choose from so you can start your day off right and fuel up for a day at the Parks!

TGIF Bfast CP One of my personal fave breakfast spots is the Crystal Palace – a character breakfast spot in the Magic Kingdom featuring Winnie The Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet. The food is amazing here – especially “Pooh’s Breakfast Lasagna” – which is essentially a warm berry bread pudding, and they also serve anything and everything breakfast-related – my fave are the Mickey waffles!

TGIF Bfast TuskerI tried Tusker House for the first time last year, and I have to say, I was impressed! Hosted by Donald and friends (decked out in their safari gear!), this African inspired meal serves up the classics as well as unique items like their bobotie (a spiced egg based casserole which is also served at Boma!)

TGIF Bfast POPIf you’re not in the mood for a sit down meal that early in the day, you can always grab something at your WDW Resort, like this freshly made waffle and bacon from the POP Century Resort

TGIF Bfast CRollIf the Magic Kingdom is your early morning Park of choice (it is for me!) then let your nose lead you over to the amazing smells coming from the Main Street Bakery, and grab a coffee and one of these bad boys – a warm, soft, gooey cinnamon roll

….Ok now not only do I miss Disney, but I’m starving. Breakfast time!
