Why Are We NOT Talking About This Snack???


Hey there, Disney Fans!!! It's me, Jenn... back from quarantine! My Orlando-based family and I have spent the last 14 months in a pretty strict lock-down, due to my and my son's vulnerability to COVID. It's been a weird year. That doesn't even cover it. It's been downright BIZARRE, but it is so nice to start to see a light at the end of the tunnel, as more of our country gets vaccinated. 

We chose to give up our Disney Annual Passes back in May of 2020, because we knew we wouldn't feel safe being in the parks. Man, did we miss Disney, though! We would even occasionally drive onto property just to see those red, purple and teal directional signs, the naked monorail beam, or the still Tower of Terror billboard on World Drive. 

So what was the first thing we did when The Hubs and I were fully vaccinated??? Get our Annual Passes back, of course! We have been back in the parks and active for about the past 3 weeks and we have been having so much fun appreciating all of the magic that we were missing. And of course we had been missing the snacks! We are Disney Foodies and we couldn't wait to get our hands on some cupcakes, popcorn buckets and new eats. 

So, what I want to know, friends, is WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS AMAZING COOKIE??? Over at Rosie's All American in Disney's Hollywood Studios, there's this incredible dessert on the menu that is worth a special trip to the park. It's called the Snacking Sandwich Cookie, but that name doesn't do it much justice. It makes it sound like any old ordinary cookie that you could snack on, right? Maybe like a big Oreo or something? Nope. Not at all. A more appropriate name would be "The Sweet 'n' Salty Yummy Chewy Crunchy Sandwich of Goodness". Probably not easy to put on the menu board though, so I'll forgive the name, but let's get down to what it really is. 

This large cookie sandwich starts with two buttery, soft, thin shortbread cookies, that are made with WHAT???? Crushed potato chips and pretzels! For serious! The result is this slightly salty, but perfectly sweet cushion around the sandwich. What is it cushioning, you ask? A huge, chewy and pillowy-soft, house-made vanilla marshmallow. I know! But it gets even better! The square is then partially dipped in dark, creamy chocolate and topped off with more chips and pretzels, and some sea salt for good measure. This bad-boy is a snacker's dream come true! Sweet, salty, chewy, gooey, crispy, creamy, crunchy, soft... it ticks all of the boxes! And it's not a bad value at all! For $4.99 this snack could easily be shared, but you likely won't want to! You've got to check this out! It's sure to become a new Disney Foodie cult favorite!

I hope you get a chance to try it for yourself really soon! In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and I'll be in the parks, hunting down all of the best treats, attractions, tips and advice for you! Until next time, Disney Friends... have a Magical Week!!!


Jenn is an Orlando local, with Disney as her playground! You can find her in the parks with her Hubs and Kiddos almost any day, and she's happy to report all her favorite eats and pics with us all.

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 -

Toledo Review - A Tale of Two Tapas

I have dined at Toledo twice. Shortly after Grand Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs opened in 2019, I ate there with my mom, and most recently with my fellow agent Maci during our visit for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary. Located on the 16th floor, the atmosphere at this dinner only restaurant is just lovely. Floor to ceiling windows with tasteful d├ęcor offer lots of light. You will get a view of all the parks, but some are certainly better than others depending on which area of the restaurant you dine in. Even if you aren’t facing the windows, the ambiance of the orange and pink stain glass on the ceiling and greenery from the trees in the restaurant are a welcome sight. Toledo is self described as serving Tapas, Steak, and Seafood. I ended up only ordering tapas and drinks both times I dined here. On my first visit, my mom and I weren’t too hungry and on my most recent visit, they were unable to serve us the special 50th Anniversary dish because it was technically the da
