12 Disney Cupcakes You Should Try, Including the BEST CUPCAKE EVER!



Hey there, hi there, ho there, Disney Foodies!

 If you haven't noticed yet, I'm a big fan of Disney cupcakes. They are one of my favorite treats to get when I'm hanging out with my littles, whether we are in the parks or just chilling at a resort. Every bakery at Walt Disney World has something different to offer and the selections are switched up frequently. Today I want to share with you my favorites, including my absolute favorite Disney cupcake I have EVER had. You can track down these beauties and try them on your next Walt Disney World vacation! Of course, you'll need to keep in mind that because selections do change often, it's possible some of these may not be available at the time of your visit. Get ready to drool, friends!

Red Velvet Minnie Cupcake from The Main Street Confectionery in The Magic Kingdom

 (Pictured at the top of this post) This one is pretty simple, but still good. It's a plain red velvet cupcake, but I am happy to report, it is done the way red velvet should be, with a chocolate base. It is topped with red buttercream frosting and crispy chocolate pearls, and two chocolate drops as mouse ears. Simple, tasty and adorable.

Millenial Pink Minnie Ears Cupcake from Fountain View at Epcot

I have reviewed this one previously, but it's worth another mention. This cupcake starts with a yellow cake, and it is filled with a light, strawberry pastry cream. It's then topped with white buttercream frosting, dipped in pink sugar crystals, and capped off with white chocolate Minnie ears. It's light, refreshing and fun.

Rose Gold Minnie Cupcake from Seasons in The Land at Epcot

This trendy beauty is a beautiful sight to behold. Yellow cake, swirled with chocolate hazelnut spread. The showstopper here though is the ornate rose gold buttercream, topped with cream cheese frosting, chocolate pearls and a fondant Minnie bow and ears. Now, as for flavor, I did NOT taste any chocolate hazelnut in the cake. It was still yummy, but tasted like vanilla to me. The frosting was so good, but there's a lot of it, so you gotta have a big sweet tooth!

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake from The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge

I've talk about this one before too! It's part of the "millenial pink" collection, though it's more hot pink than baby pink to me. This is a chocolate cake, filled with a spongy raspberry mousse, and topped with pink buttercream, a raspberry, white chocolate mouse ears and edible glitter. A good bet for chocolate lovers.

~~~





Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake from The Beach Club Marketplace at Disney's Beach Club Resort

Um, yum. This is one of the very best cupcakes I have had on property. (Not THE best, but we are getting to that!) This one is a plain chocolate cake, but don't let that fool you! The frosting is a combo of peanut butter and chocolate buttercream, and it's topped with chocolate curls and Reese's Pieces! Mmmm. 

~~~








Rose Gold and Millenial Pink Cupcakes from The Contempo Cafe at Disney's Contemporary Resort

These two are the same cupcake, with different colored mouse ears on top. They both have a yellow cake, filled with chopped strawberries, and topped with whipped white buttercream. They each have chocolate pearls and a chocolate set of Minnie ears on top. Perfect for those who love strawberry shortcake!

~~~




Cookies and Cream Cupcake from the World Premier Food Court at Disney's All Star Movies Resort

 All your cookie dreams come true! This chocolate cake is topped with cookies and cream buttercream, rainbow sprinkles and two Oreo mouse ears! My daughter LOVED it!

~~~




Confetti Cupcake from Landscape of Flavors at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

Another simple but delicious choice! This is a vanilla cake with rainbow sprinkles throughout, topped with a liberal scoop of vanilla buttercream, more rainbow sprinkles, and a chocolate drizzle, all making it look a bit like an ice cream sundae.... but better! 

~~~




Raspberry Marshmallow Cupcake from Landscape of Flavors at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

I don't know how I managed to not get a picture of the inside of this one, but I somehow did not. (Probably because it was so tasty, it got gobbled up before I could!) The chocolate cake is filled with raspberry marshmallow fluff, then the cake is topped with lots of raspberry and vanilla buttercream, chocolate pearls and Mickey ear chocolate drops. The Hubs only had one complaint... why couldn't it just be plain marshmallow and not raspberry. I was good with the slight raspberry hint, though. It was subtle to me. 

~~~






The Mermaid Cupcake from The BoardWalk Bakery at Disney's BoardWalk Inn

Mermaids are all the rage right now, and the theme works especially well for summer. This vanilla cupcake has a light coconut custard inside. It's topped with white and blue cream, toasted coconut, chocolate pearls and seashells, and of course, a mermaid tail and glitter. It super cute and has a nice, tropical flavor to it. But--I'm sorry, I can't stand whipped cream frosting. Pretty much all of the BoardWalk's cupcakes are made with this "baker's cream," which is essentially a whipped topping. Not a fan myself, but if you favor a lighter, creamier cupcake, this might be the one for you.

And finally, the very best cupcake I have EVER had.....




The Peanut Butter and Jelly Flowerpot Cupcake from Seasons in The Land at Epcot

This is IT! The genuine article. Okay, so this one is going to require you to like a lot of buttercream frosting and a lot of PB&J. You onboard? Great! So we start with a white cupcake, and fill it.... I mean, STUFF it... with grape jelly and creamy peanut butter. Then it is stacked high with terra cotta colored buttercream to look like the pot, a pile of crushed Oreo's to serve as soil, piped green buttercream for grass, and topped with actual edible fresh marigold flowers. I did not eat the flower because though they are technically edible, they still taste like, well... flowers. But oh my heavens.... this cupcake. I don't know if the best part is the peanut butter filling, or the massive amounts of frosting, or the Oreo crumble, but all together it is amazeballs. No other way to describe it. You HAVE to try this one yourself!

There ya have it, folks! My favorite cupcakes from around the "World." See any you like??? Well, what are you waiting for? Come and get 'em! And if you need help planning a sweet escape, contact the agents at Kingdom Konsultants to get your delicious getaway planned!

Until next time, Disney Kiddos, have a magical week!

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

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

Resort Highlight: Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney’s Riviera Resort opened in December 2019, so it’s just been open for over a year. The beautiful resort is themed to Walt Disney’s travels through Europe and his love of the French and Italian Riviera. The special touches like a library, bistro, terraces, and manicured grounds at this resort invoke a feeling of being in such a place. The Riviera is considered a Disney Vacation Club property, and as such it offers only villa accommodations, including a Tower Studio that sleeps two, a Deluxe Studio that sleeps five, a One-Bedroom Villa that sleeps five, a Two-Bedroom Villa that sleeps nine, and a Three-Bedroom Villa that sleeps 12. One of my favorite things about the Villas are how the smaller rooms – particularly the Deluxe Studio – can comfortably accommodate a family of five. In addition to a queen bed, there is also a queen pull-down murphy-style bed as well as a twin pull-down bed. There is plenty of sitting room for the daytime once these beds are folded in, including a table
