WDW 50th Anniversary Foodie Guide - Part 4


With so many great food specials for the 50th Anniversary, it takes multiple agents and trips to try them all.  Today I bring you the fourth installment of our foodie guide which brings maybe my favorite 50th item yet! 

Disney's Hollywood Studios - Rosie's All American Café

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

This cookie was honestly such a delight.  The first bite is peanut-buttery and wonderful, but then you keep going.  Your next bite you get a little jam with the peanut butter cookie, wow it got even better.  Now your fully into the cookie, and your third bite has the chocolate fudge in addition to the cookie and the jam and it is just the perfect trifecta of salty and sweet.  I can't wait to have this cookie again!

Disney's Animal Kingdom - Dino-Bites Snacks

50th Celebration Ice Cream Sandwich

Dino-Bites is one of my regular go-to spots in Animal Kingdom for a quiet break with a tasty treat.  I'm a huge fan of the classic chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.  I was excited to give this a try.  While the cookie had a great chocolatey flavor, it was a little too crispy to be a good vessel for the ice cream.  Each bite found the ice cream trying to escape out the other side.  It is quite pretty to look at and so festive, but I just couldn't get past how messy it was! 
Magic Kingdom - Sleepy Hollow

The Doom Berry
Blackberry and Ginger Beer with a specialty straw

I'll be honest, I usually find the specialty non-alcoholic drinks too sweet for my taste, but this one was surprisingly refreshing.  Blackberry isn't an overly sweet fruit to begin with and then the ginger is just the perfect punch to balance it out.  The straw was a big hit as well!
Disney's Hollywood Studios - ABC Commissary

Chocolate Mousse
Raspberry-dark chocolate mousse, chocolate-almond cake, and a layer of hazelnut crunch and whipped chocolate-hazelnut cheesecake

This dessert isn't as "in your face 50th" but it sure has elegance and class.  Not really what I expected from a quick service dessert honestly.  However, this was a chocolate decadence and if you are into that, you will love this dessert. The layers of mousse, cake and crunch played so nicely together.  I'm glad we split this, because it is definitely rich!
If you haven't read Part 1, Part 2, or Part 3 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.

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 décor 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
