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

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 décor 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
