In Part 1 of our Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Foodie Guide, Agent Maci kicked off our series to review the new sips and bites you can find around the Walt Disney World Resort for the World's Most Magical Celebration. The celebration continues for the next 18 months so you'll have plenty of time to try these new tasty treats. We did our best to chip away at the extensive list of celebration food and drinks on our trip over the 50th Anniversary kick-off weekend so we could report back to you. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!
ABC Commissary (Disney's Hollywood Studios)
Caramel Apple Tart - Spiced Caramel Cheesecake Mousse Apple served atop a Cinnamon-Apple Tart
The Caramel Apple Tart dessert at the ABC Commissary was absolutely delicious! I'm a fan of cheesecake and any apple desserts so I was very happy that this dessert didn't disappoint. The cheesecake is rich but it's a decent size so you can easily share it with a few people. It also looks really cute. For $5.49, I thought this was a really good value for a dessert that you can share. I would happily order this again.

Backlot Express (Disney's Hollywood Studios)
Glimmer and Shimmer Blondie - Gooey Toffee and Toasted Coconut Blondie with Salted Caramel Buttercream and festive Gold Nuggets
The Glimmer and Shimmer Blondie sounded really good so I was really bummed when it didn't live up to my expectations. I thought it was good but it was way too sweet. It also would have been way better if it was served warm with vanilla ice cream on top instead. We split this dessert and all of us agreed that it was just lacking. If you do decide to try this treat, it's another great one to split and at $4.49, is a good value if you actually like the flavor.
