T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rose Gold Mania Hits The Disney Parks

It all started back in August – when these Rose Gold Minnie Ears hit the shelves at various shops throughout the Disney Parks

They were an instant hit – so much so that they couldn’t keep them in stock the first few months! (Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten yours yet – you can buy them on the ShopDisney App)

Disney took this as a good sign – and ran with it:

The millennial pink Magic band was introduced soon thereafter…

…As were these Rose Gold Jerseys

Soon enough, they realized it was time to venture outside of apparel – and go for the big guns…

…and by big guns I mean DESSERT, of course! This is the new Rose Gold Ears Cupcake – available at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. The cake itself is marble, with a pile of vanilla buttercream on top. The bow and ears are fondant – which means they are edible but probably not the best tasting thing ever – but they sure are adorable!

This one definitely falls into the “too cute to eat (but I will demolish it anyway)” category! I hope they are still around later this year when I head to WDW

What about you – will you be giving into the “Rose Gold” trend for any of these awesome goodies?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mickey’s Pumpkins “Earn Their Ears”

We are in the middle of my favorite time of year – fall! I absolutely LOVE the season and all that comes with it – apples, leaves, cool weather, and especially PUMPKINS! That orange squash is delicious and decorative, and has a ton of uses. One thing you may not know about pumpkins is that Walt Disney World grows their own – over in Epcot you’ll find the Living With The Land attraction – a boat ride that takes you through 4 greenhouses, where you’ll see a fish farm, as well as high tech and experimental growing techniques on display

Land

What once needed soil to grown can now grow on trees, vines, and in water – pretty cool right?

Lemon  

Nine pound lemon anyone?

 

Cuc 

Or perhaps a Mickey shaped cucumber? This one is not quite ready, but once it is, it will be delicious (and mouse shaped!)

MickeyPumpkinHere is my favorite part – the Mickey Pumpkin! These are grown in the greenhouses, and if you look in the background you can see other pumpkins that are still growing into their Mickey shaped molds, with signs that proclaim that they are “earning their ears”!

 

The produce grown here as well as the seafood can be tasted at the two restaurants housed within the Land – Sunshine Seasons and the Garden Grill restaurant – and the pumpkins can be found in a seasonal favorite – pumpkin soup! What a perfect way to warm up on a rainy fall day – yum!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Sugar High!

I have spoken many times before of how amazing the FOOD is at Walt Disney World, and one of my favorite things to get here? DESSERT! There are so many options, and every restaurant does something different and unique

Here are just a very few of the items you can expect to find if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth at WDW:
Start your day off with this amazingly gooey Cinnamon Roll, available at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom
Head to Starring Roles at Hollywood Studios for one of these hugely delicious Butterfinger Cupcakes (and yes, that IS a fudge center!)
Buffets (like one of my faves – Chef Mickey’s!) usually have a great variety of desserts – I personally like to try one of everything!
You can’t go wrong with a classic – the Mickey Ice Cream Bar
Pick up one of these red velvet whoopie pies at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot
…Not sure if any of these are the right sweet for you? Well then there HAS to be something here that you would like – the Werther’s Caramel store in Epcot’s Germany has SO MANY yummy treats, but I recommend the salted caramels!
I LOVE to bake (and BLOG about my baking adventures too!), but there is something amazing about letting someone else do the baking, while you get to do the eating! Thanks WDW for helping feed my dessert desires!
TGIF!
