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.

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
