Yes, you read the title correctly! We are now on Part 3 of our Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Foodie Guide! If you haven't read Part 1 or Part 2, no worries! They don't have to be read chronologically but you may want to read those posts if you're looking for more reviews of all the new tasty treats for the World's Most Magical Celebration.
The celebration continues through March 2023 so you still have over a year to try the new food and drink options. We tried a lot of the treats during our 50th Anniversary kick-off weekend trip and we happily tried even more new treats on our most recent trip.
Contempo Café (Disney's Contemporary Resort)50th Anniversary German Chocolate Cupcake - Chocolate Cupcake filled with German Chocolate filling topped with Buttercream, Chocolate Contemporary Resort 50th Anniversary Logo and a White Chocolate curl
Yachtsman Steakhouse (Disney's Yacht Club Resort)Magical Beacon Cocktail - Empress 1908 Gin, Bols Blue Curaçao, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, Orgeat (Almond), Lemon, Hibiscus Grenadine, and a souvenir Glow Cube

Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew (Disney Springs)
Nifty Fifty - Lavender iced donut topped with sprinkle-fetti and features blue, pink and purple jewel tones.
The Nifty Fifty was a pretty good donut. Fair warning, it was really sweet but it was also really tasty. I could have done without the sprinkle-fetti but it was cute so I let it slide. If you've never been to Everglazed Donuts, the donuts are pretty large so it's very easy to share one or save some for later. At $6.50 for one donut, I'm not gonna lie, it's pricey but the fact that the donut is so large makes up for the steep price. If you like sprinkles and sweet donuts, give this treat a try!
The Hollywood Brown Derby (Disney's Hollywood Studios)50th Celebration Baked Alaska - Layers of Strawberry-Basil Sorbet, Vanilla Gelato, and Sponge Cake coated in Toasted Meringue and Caramelized Brownie Bites

Cheshire Café (Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom)All Mixed Up - Strawberry Tea topped with Whipped Cream and Sprinkles
I'm not a tea drinker, but I figured I'd give the All Mixed Up a try over at the Cheshire Cafe. The description may say "tea" but it's more of a slushy drink than a tea. In fact, I didn't get any tea flavor from this drink. I thought the slushy was tasty and refreshing on a hot day but it wasn't a winner for me. The drink also looked nothing like the picture on the menu. I'm not sure if they ran out of the sprinkles that were supposed to be on the whipper cream but the color of the drink also looked way off.

Aloha Isle (Adventureland, Magic Kingdom)Showtime with Jose - Mango and Vanilla Soft-serve swirl over Pineapple Juice served with a Blue Chocolate Feather
Aloha Isle has so many 50th treats to try and this was the second one I've tried so far. I love Dole Whips and I'm always open to try any new flavor combinations. On this trip, I tried the Showtime with Jose. I'm not a huge fan of mango so although I found this treat enjoyable, it wasn't my favorite. I preferred the Tropical Serenade flavors that I reviewed in Part 2 much more. It's still a good treat and if you love mango, you'll most likely love this!

Spring Roll Cart (Adventureland, Magic Kingdom)50th Celebration Spring Rolls - Pastrami and Pepper Jack served with Mustard Dipping Sauce
I just discovered the Spring Roll Cart last year and I understand now why the line is always so long! You can find the Spring Roll Cart right before you walk under the Adventureland sign, over on the right hand side of the walkway. They usually offer two types of spring rolls and you have the option to choose two rolls of the same flavor or get one of each spring roll for $9.50. We opted for one of each and got their classic Cheeseburger Spring Roll (I highly recommend!) and the 50th Celebration Spring Rolls. The new spring roll replaced the Buffalo Chicken Spring Roll which was my favorite so this new spring roll had some big shoes to fill! Sadly, the new 50th Celebration Spring Rolls wasn't my favorite. It was still a tasty spring roll but it just didn't compare to the Cheeseburger or Buffalo Chicken spring rolls. I'll most likely stick with the Cheeseburger rolls for now.

California Grill (Disney's Contemporary Resort)Five Magical Bites 50 Years in the Making - Honey, Lemon, Carrot, Strawberry, Chocolate
This dessert was delicious! It's the perfect dessert if you're looking for a little bit of everything. I enjoyed all of the bites but the Carrot Cake and Cheesecake with Strawberry were my favorites. The Honey bite was really cute with a little bee on top. Both the Chocolate and Lemon bites had very strong flavors but they were both enjoyable. I would absolutely order this dessert again. (Stay tuned for a full review of the 50th Anniversary menu at California Grill coming soon.)

Rosie's All-American Café (Disney's Hollywood Studios)Disney's Hollywood Studios 50th Celebration Sandwich Cookie - Celebrating the 50th Anniversary with a Pretzel Shortbread Cookie sandwiched with Strawberry Jam and Peanut Butter-Chocolate Fudge

Restaurantosaurus (DinoLand, U.S.A, Disney's Animal Kingdom)
I didn't order this item but someone in my family did so I although I can't give a first hand account of how it tasted, I was told it was good. I'm sorry I don't have a more thorough analysis of the flavors but if you like chili-cheese dogs, I think you'll like Walt's Chili.

Again, I didn't try this item but it's the same cheese and Walt's Chili as on the Foot-long Cheese Dog. I was told this dish was also very tasty.

Now this dish I can talk about! I decided to split this Fried Chicken Sandwich with my mom and I thought it was delicious. The fried chicken was really tasty and I also loved the combination of the pickles and roasted garlic aioli. My mom doesn't like pickles and she found the pickle flavor way too overwhelming on this sandwich. Since I love pickles, I loved the flavor. I would definitely order this sandwich again.

This is another dessert that I ordered because it looked pretty and not so much for the description. I thought this cupcake was really good but fair warning, the lemon flavor is pretty intense. It is Lemon Cake with Lemon Chiffon Filling so that shouldn't be too big of a surprise to anyone ordering unless you're just looking at the picture and not reading the description. Although I thought the cupcake was good, I probably wouldn't order it again. It's not a "must-eat" in my book but it is enjoyable.
