5 Seasonal Summer Magic Kingdom Treats - 2019


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

Who's ready to check out some new sweets and treats from the Magic Kingdom? The fam and I hit up the park the other night to enjoy some rides and fun before summer officially kicks off and school is out. (Yes, our kids last day of school is THIS WEEK!) While we were there, we of course, had to try out some of the newer items that are being served up in the parks. What kind of Disney fans would we be if we didn't? I'm happy to share that we experienced some tasty new items and would love to share them with you now. Let's check 'em out!

~~~~~~~~~

1. Minnie's Cookie Dough Sundae

Celebrating Mickey's favorite gal, this sundae is available at Storybook Treats in Fantasyland. It starts with vanilla soft-serve ice cream and is topped with hot fudge, two balls of edible chocolate chip cookie dough as ears, a white chocolate Minnie bow and whipped cream. 


It's super cute and the chocolate chip cookie dough is a unique twist on a basic sundae. The edible cookie dough has been popping up all over property, including at the value resort's food courts. It's an egg-free version of cookie dough, made with treated flour, so no pesky salmonella for enjoying this dough! The consistency is a bit gritty, but that's really the only noticeable difference between this and regular cookie dough. 

As for the sundae, it was good. Not great, but good. The ice cream would have melted quickly anyway, but with the hot fudge on it, it didn't have a prayer. We had ice cream soup in about two minutes. It didn't stop the kids from eating/drinking it. Good one for ice cream lovers, but not something I'll get again. 


2. The Lost Princess Cone

Also from Storybook Treats, this refreshing ice cream cone is super cute and honors the "lost princess" herself, Rapunzel. 


The twisty yellow soft serve resembles her long braid, complete with flowers to decorate it, and the purple cone is reminiscent of her dress. It even has some sparkle to make it more 'princess-y'. The cone is really just a regular, dyed cake cone but the ice cream part is something special. Meet Dole Whip's new cousin, Lemon Whip. It's a light, tangy, refreshing lemon soft serve that's more like sherbet than ice cream. SO YUMMY! Yes, the flowers are edible but I do not care for them. To me, they taste like... well, plants. The sparkly topping I could have done without too. It looked pretty, but it didn't have any sweetness to it so it was more like flour had been dusted on top. I would totally get this one again, but next time I'll ask for no glitter and I'll toss the flowers. 


3. Mickey Celebration Push-Pop

Right next door in Fantasyland, The Friar's Nook is celebrating the Big Cheese with this fun cake pop. It comes in a clear tube, lined with this adorable Mickey paper. The pop is advertised as a confetti cake with buttercream. Now, as you can see from the side of the tube, it was not packed very tightly, and there was some empty space inside the tube, lowering its value to me. The "cake" was more like cake batter or cookie dough. It was very, very moist, and in fact, mushy. The buttercream was very tasty and the sprinkle topping was super fun. 


I also liked that the hole at the top was Mickey-shaped and made the pop come out in a Mickey shape!

Overall, though it had a nice vanilla flavor and was a fun treat, I would not recommend this one. For $5 the pop was small and was basically a tube of frosting. Not that a tube of frosting is a bad thing... just not worth price. 


4. Celebration Brownie

Casey's Corner on Main Street USA is also celebrating Mickey with a tasty treat: a buttercream-topped brownie! This brownie-in-a-cup is topped with a generous layer of vanilla buttercream and a white chocolate disc with the main man himself on it. 


Though not terribly exciting, it was a nice, moist brownie and my daughter (a self-proclaimed brownie connoisseur) loved it. 


5. The "Wish Granted" Donut

In honor of the arrival of Disney's live-action "Aladdin" into theaters, the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland is selling this amazing confection. The base is a fried, yeast donut, coated in gold sugar, and topped with a chocolate disc, printed with a magic lamp, and a tuft of blue cotton candy coming out the top of it.


Now, the picture that advertises the donut at Sunshine Tree Terrace shows a considerably larger amount of cotton candy coming from the top, but it worked out fine, since the already extreme heat and humidity of Central Florida made the cotton candy melt and evaporate into a sticky mess almost immediately. More cotton candy would have just meant more mess. 

The donut itself was fresh and more like a beignet or fried dough than a yeast donut. And bonus: it was egg-free! We were psyched to hear that, since my little guy is allergic to eggs, so he was able to enjoy this treat with us. The gold sugar didn't make the donut overly sweet, though it was kind of a weird texture, since it was large grains of sanding sugar. Kind of crunchy for a donut. The chocolate square was rich, delicious milk chocolate. The cotton candy was Disney's standard blue raspberry cotton candy. 

Overall, we really liked this one. The price tag was a little high, at over $5, but since we liked it a lot, it was worth it.

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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
