New Snack Alert! Fried Twinkies at The Magic Kingdom!


Hey there, Disney Foodies!

     Looking for a new snack option at The Magic Kingdom? Look no further! Just a couple of weeks ago, The Friar's Nook in Fantasyland introduced the brand new Fried Twinkie! Ooooooo!


     This little beauty is a Hostess Twinkie, (Just in case you are not familiar, the Twinkie is a yellow sponge cake, filled with a white, vanilla frosting/creme, that has a somewhat marshmallowy consistency.), coated in a sweet batter, and deep fried. You then get your choice of chocolate drizzle, strawberry drizzle or caramel drizzle, and a dusting of powdered sugar.

   
     When I decided to try this treat out, I regretfully did not have The Hubs with me. Fried Twinkies are pretty much his FAVORITE thing from local fairs and festivals, so I knew he would be excited about this. Personally, I am not a big Twinkie fan, nor am I a huge fried food fan, but I had to try it. You know... for research. This snack is $4.99 and it does count as a Dining Plan Snack Credit.

     I went with the chocolate drizzle option. The Twinkie was served hot and I had to wait a bit to bite into it. There was very little batter on it, in fact, I'm not 100% sure there was any batter. It may have just been a fried Twinkie, period. The fried Twinkies I have tried at fairs have had a thicker, cake-like batter around them, but this Twinkie barely looked larger than it's regular size. It was served in a paper boat instead of the iconic stick I have seen at local fairs.

     When it was cool enough to bite, I gave it a whirl. I was pleasantly surprised to find the outside coating somewhat crispy, and the inside still soft and spongy. The heat of the fryer did melt down the filling, making it quite liquidy. It was definitely a messy eat, and I would recommend a fork and knife, which I was too impatient to get. Overall, I would say that Twinkie-lovers will love this new option. As for me... I'm going to stick to the cookie/ice cream sandwiches from Sleepy Hollow.


    How about you? What's your favorite Magic Kingdom Snack item? Will YOU be trying out the Fried Twinkie?

     Until next time, Disney Guys and Gals, have a magical week!!!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
