BRAND NEW! Iridescent Snacks at Disney!


Hey there, Disney Fashionistas and Foodies!

     As we all know, Disney has gotten really good at capitalizing on what is hip and hot right now in the world of trends. First it was all about the rose gold, and then along came the millennial pink. Well, the newest color trend at Disney takes it's cue from the magical and majestic unicorn. Say hello to iridescent! Fashionistas will find iridescent Mouse ears and spirit jerseys around the parks.

And foodies... we got you covered! There are a number of rainbowy, sparkly, opalescent snacks and we got to try out some of them. Let's check them out!

Rainbow Cookies and Cream Blondie  (The Market at Ale and Compass @ Beach Club Resort)

     This beauty is a chocolate chip cookie base, with rainbow sprinkles and Oreo cookies scattered throughout. It's then coated in white chocolate, and adorned with it's own set of iridescent Minnie ears, made form white chocolate, iridescent sugar, and a shiny purple bow. Overall, it's undeniably cute, but a little heavy on white chocolate for me. (If you read my posts often, you'll know of my hatred for the stuff.) The Hubs tried it too and he likes white chocolate, so he was happier with it than I. He did say it was a bit dry, but otherwise tasty. 



Iridescent Rhino Cupcake  (The Mara @ Animal Kingdom Lodge)

     I don't know that I would consider this one "iridescent", exactly. It's more like "galaxy" colors, with some shine to it, but I'll accept it. This is a chocolate cupcake, with a secret inside... caramel cream! It's sort of like a pudding consistency, and quite tasty. The cupcake is topped with brightly colored pink, blue and purple butter cream, crowned with silver-dusted crispy chocolate pearls, and then a white chocolate rhino, dusted in iridescent pink edible glitter is placed on top. It's a really pretty cupcake and probably the most enjoyable snack of the day. The creamy coolness of the caramel cream is a nice compliment to the chocolate cake. Disney buttercream is generally delicious and the crispiness from the pearls was a nice touch, as well. I highly recommend this 'wildly' good cupcake! 




Iridescent Unicorn Ears Cupcake  (The BoardWalk Bakery @ The BoardWalk)


     Probably the prettiest of the iridescent snacks, unicorn lovers will flip over this sparkly, magical cupcake. It is a yellow cake, filled with wildberry lemonade mousse, and topped with rainbow "baker's cream" whipped frosting. It then gets pink, sparkly white chocolate ears and a unicorn horn, and crispy chocolate pearls. I will confess that I did not try this one. I do not like the whipped topping frosting that is used on the BoardWalk's cupcakes and as I already covered, I despise white chocolate, so luckily, the baker let me snap a pic of the tray of these beauties coming out. She described them as being very light and refreshing. You'll have to let me know if you try one!



Iridescent Minnie Ears Cupcake  (Food Courts at The All Star Resorts and Saratoga Springs)

     Soooo fun! This cupcake looks like a cosmic, cotton-candy dream come true! It's a chocolate cupcake, filled with cotton candy flavored marshmallow filling. The topping is whipped, airy blue raspberry flavored buttercream, in an array of colors, and then it gets powder blue white chocolate Minnie ears, some crispy chocolate pearls, and a dusting of blue edible glitter. The cake was moist and delicious, and the cotton candy marshmallow filling, though a little runny, was super good. The buttercream was good, with just a slight hint of raspberry flavor. Of course, I gave the white chocolate ears to the Hubs. Booooo, white chocolate! I highly recommend that you let this one sit for a while. They are stored chilled and the icing can be a hard blob if you don't let it thaw out. Overall, a yummy and gorgeous option!

     That covers all of the snacks that I got to try. There are more, though, including a mermaid cupcake at The Magic Kingdom, an iridescent Minnie cupcake at Contempo Cafe at the Contemporary, an iridescent Minnie ears crispy rice treat from Fountain View in Epcot, a sparkling wine and unicorn macaron pop from Amorette's in Disney Springs and a unicorn ganache pop from The Ganachery in Disney Springs.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
