Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday has been killing the snack game lately, and the newest sweet treat is no exception. Joining the new Steamboat Willie Cupcake and Tinker Bell Coconut Cheesecake is the…wait for it…

S’mores Brownie

S’MORES BROWNIE!!!

This super moist cupcake-shaped brownie is piled high with chocolate, chocolate chips, toasted gooey marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces. That’s one stunner of a brownie, right? If you’ve ever done a “cheese pull”, you can actually do a s’mores marshmallow pull with this thing!

S’mores Brownie

The brownie is very chocolatey and the layer of marshmallows is just right, with the slight toasting adding the perfect “campfire” touch. The graham crackers were completely soft, though, and we were missing that classic crunch. Altogether, this treat was still a great snack!

S’mores Brownies

You can grab the S’mores Brownie at Jolly Holiday for $4.99 before the Annual Passholder discount. Who says you have to go camping to enjoy s’mores?

For all our like-minded peanut butter lovers, we found a new treat for you! We spotted a DELICIOUS Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie at Jolly Holiday in Disneyland!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie

Peanut butter and chocolate are two of my primary food groups, so I was momentarily awestruck when I saw it in the bakery case.

We clearly couldn’t resist trying this treat out for ourselves and let me tell you, it was worth it! The pie was moist and flaky with a scrumptious chocolate filling. It’s topped with peanut butter-chocolate frosting, chocolate chips, WHITE chocolate chips, and peanuts!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie

The chocolate-peanut butter frosting seemed to be freshly whipped and just melts in your mouth. The peanut butter taste is very prominent, so it’s the perfect treat for peanut butter fans!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie

You can pick up the Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie for $4.99 at Jolly Holiday, before the Annual Passholder discount. I just might have to get another one for myself!

Hope you’re enjoying a great weekend so far! We’re back with another DFB Video this weekend, and we’re talking about things we expected to hate in Walt Disney World… but didn’t!

You may think Florida rain might mess up your trip… but it’s not so bad!

Admittedly, things like waiting in long lines for rides and unpredictable weather give us cause for concern over what might not go so well in Walt Disney World. But there are plenty of things we were uncertain about — or were even concerned we wouldn’t like — in Walt Disney World that have turned out better than expected… in some cases, much better! We hope you’ll enjoy hearing about them in our latest DFB YouTube Video!

Red Rose Taverne in Disneyland’s Fantasyland is the little overlay that could. Back in 2017, Disneyland Park reimagined its historic Village Haus as part of the company’s celebration of the release of the live-action Beauty and the Beast. But the last petal still hasn’t fallen, and Red Rose Taverne appears to be a sticking around indefinitely.

Red Rose Taverne

So when we’re in Disneyland, we always pop by to see what’s cookin’ in this poor, provincial town, and recently we discovered a couple new breakfast dishes we had to try. Both have the opportunity to enchant the diner — but will they be… wait for it… delicious?

Breakfast at Red Rose Taverne

The Beast’s Breakfast Burger and the Stuffed French Toast are essentially polar opposites — fitting, of course, for the story of Belle and the Beast.

Stuffed French Toast and Breakfast Burger

The Beast’s Breakfast Burger is a hearty, 1/3 Angus patty topped with rosemary-maple cream cheese, bacon, and scrambled eggs. That’s three types of protein in one bite — ideal for a carnivorous Beast.

Beast’s Breakfast Burger

This is a substantial burger and more than enough food for one (unless that one happens to be, you know, the Beast himself), and it was a decent (though unfortunately dry) quick service burger. The rosemary-maple cream cheese is the surprise element in this and adds a hint of sweetness and freshness.

Beast’s Breakfast Burger

If you prefer to start your day with a hit of sugar and a slab of carbs, the Stuffed French Toast will be more your speed. This breakfast is sweet on top of sweet — with a side of bacon.

Stuffed French Toast

The filling between two pieces of French toast is sweetened cream cheese, and combined with the berry compote on top, there’s more than enough sugar to get you fired up for your first ride of the day. Let’s just say: it comes with a side of maple syrup, but you don’t need it.

Stuffed French Toast

Look, Red Rose Taverne doesn’t appear to be going anywhere, but we’re still kids at heart who can sing “Be Our Guest” at any moment, so we are here for the overlay, as long as it stays. And the breakfast here (which was hit-or-miss on our first visit back in the day) is okay! You’re not expecting French perfection from a quick service spot, but you’ll be full, some of the flavors are interesting, and you’re smack dab in the heart of Fantasyland so you can dance your way to your next attraction easily. We say: every day like the one before isn’t so bad at Red Rose Taverne.

From Dole Whips and Mickey Pretzels to Peter Pan Floats, Disney World is home to some iconic and delicious snacks. BUT, not all snacks are created equally (or with equal price tags)!

Peter Pan Float

If you’ve got the Disney Dining Plan for your upcoming trip to Disney World, you’ll absolutely want to get the biggest and best value for your snack credits in order to make your Dining Plan worth it.

Learn more about the Disney Dining Plan here!

Mickey Pretzel

And you KNOW we’ve got your back! We’ve scoured the snack landscape to find five of the best ways to use a DDP snack credit. Follow along with us and you’ll be on your way to becoming a Disney snack credit pro!

Try an Over-the-Top Funnel Cake

Crispy, sugary funnel cakes are found at theme parks around the globe, but Disney World’s funnel cakes can be serious business if you find the right ones. If you’re in the mood for a traditional funnel cake, you can grab one for $6.99 at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom.

But, if you really want to get the best value for your snack credit, head on over to Oasis Canteen in Hollywood Studios. There, you’ll find a duo of GIGANTIC funnel cakes — one with strawberry toppings and soft-serve vanilla ice cream, and the other with cookies and cream toppings and soft-serve vanilla ice cream.

Cookies & Cream Funnel Cake

Both cost a whopping $8.49 if you’re not using your Disney Dining Plan snack credit, and are easily shareable.

Check out our reviews for the strawberry-topped funnel cake and the cookies and cream funnel cake from Oasis Canteen! Fill Up on a Snack That Doubles as a Meal

If you’re trying to conserve your meal credits during your Disney World vacation, get a snack that doubles as a meal! Animal Kingdom, in particular, has some delicious meal-worthy snacks.

First on our list is the Pulled Pork Cheese Fries from Flame Tree Barbecue. These are super killer and totally worth your snack credit and calorie allotment. French fries are topped with a pile of savory pulled pork before being doused in barbecue sauce, green onions, and of course, PLASTIC CHEESE. These fries are super yummy, super filling and are priced at $6.99.

Pulled Pork Fries with Cheese at Flame Tree Barbecue

Also at Animal Kingdom, head over to Eight Spoon Cafe for the Baked Mac and Cheese. They have a standard baked mac, and two topped versions — one with shrimp and one with pulled pork. These dishes are currently priced at $6.69 and $6.49, respectively. The shrimp version gives you a bit more value for your snack credit, but both are EXCELLENT options.

Snag The Most Epic Cinnamon Roll You’ve Ever Seen

Cinnamon rolls can be found all over the Disney World parks and resorts. The option at Gaston’s Tavern in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is pretty impressive, but the Mickey-shaped Colossal Cinnamon Roll is even MORE impressive —  and it has the price tag to match.

Colossal Cinnamon Roll

The Colossal Cinnamon Roll is currently priced at $7.49! It is absolutely shareable and is not too dry despite its large surface area. This would be a great breakfast option for two, three or even four people.

Colossal Cinnamon Roll

You can find this one in most Starbucks locations in Disney World, but it originated at Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery in Animal Kingdom. If you’re in the mood for a sweet pastry to start your Disney day, the Colossal Cinnamon Roll is a great way to go.

For more of our favorite snack credit breakfast items, check out our video here! Get a Sugar Rush from Ice Cream Sundaes

I don’t know what’s better than a refreshing ice cream sundae on a hot summer day (or any day, TBH). Disney World has several delicious ice cream sundaes that are great uses of a snack credit.

The most expensive sundaes you can get for a snack credit are found at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom. They are offering a Brownie Sundae and Apple Blossom Sundae for $7.49 each.

Apple Blossom Sundae

You’ll also find the All-American Sundae there for $6.99 as well as some specialty, limited-time sundaes like the current Peanut Butter Dream!

If you’re just in the mood for some good, old-fashioned ice cream, Ample Hills Creamery is the way to go. You’ll find Ample Hills on the Boardwalk and you can try a small cup or cone of their ice cream for $6.99. Our personal favorites are Ooey Gooey Butter Cake and PB Wins the Cup.

Ample Hills Creamery

Eat Around the Epcot Festivals

Probably the best way to use your Disney Dining Plan snack credit is by visiting the food booths at Epcot’s festivals. There are four festivals spread throughout the year – Festival of the Arts, Flower and Garden Festival, Food and Wine Festival, and Festival of the Holidays. Many of the items found at the food booths are snack credit eligible and can be worth between $7 and $9.

Grilled Lamb Kefta Kebab

If you’re planning to attend one of Epcot’s festivals, be sure to use your snack credits there. We personally love to make a meal out of several items from the festival booths! Keep an eye on Disney Food Blog for the latest on this year’s upcoming festivals!

China Booth in 2018 Food & Wine Festival

See? We told you we had your back! Hold out for these snack items to get a great value for your Disney Dining Plan snack credits.

It’s a jolly holiday when it comes to new treats over at Jolly Holiday Bakery in Disneyland.

Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe

From the new chocolate-potato-chip donut to the Steamboat Willie Cupcake, we’re digging all these new options.

There is also an all-new pixie perfect Tinkerbell coconut cheesecake to try! From the buttercream bun to the white chocolate wings, everything about this treat screams picture perfect.

Tinkerbell Coconut Cheesecake

But, sadly the flavor didn’t win us over as much as the look of this treat did. Each bite gave us an overwhelming amount of coconut flavor. So if you’re a HUGE coconut fan, this will be perfect for you. Don’t love that flavor? Skip this one.

Tinkerbell Cheesecake Cupcake

It did have a creamy smooth texture and a nice bit of tartness…so that was nice!

Tinkerbell Coconut Cheesecake

You can get this treat at Jolly Holiday for $5.79 for a limited time! So spread your wings and fly on over.

What’s your favorite Jolly Holiday treat? Let us know in the comments below!

From the new Goofy cookies ‘n milk macaron to the Tinkerbell coconut cheesecake, our day has been full of Jolly Holiday Bakery treats.

New Jolly Holiday Treats

We loved reviewing each of them but weren’t too blown away by flavor until we met this new cupcake… .

The Steamboat Willie cupcake was hands down the most delicious treat we tried at Jolly Holiday today.

Steamboat Willie Cupcake

We also adored that our favorite little steamboat friend was featured…doesn’t he look SO cute at in white chocolate form as he stands proudly on top of this delicious cupcake?

This is a pound cake cupcake with jolly holiday’s now-standard lightly textured frosting (this time it seemed to have a subtle cheesecake flavor) and a raspberry filling. It was very light and we loved the flavors.

Steamboat Willie Cupcake

The details and flavors make this a must-have treat in our eyes and we can’t wait to eat it again! You can find it for a limited time at Jolly Holiday in Disneyland.

Since 1955, Main Street Cinema has been a small theatre on Main Street U.S.A. that played classic Disney shorts. This spot had a way of taking us back to the good ‘ole days and never failed to make us smile.

Main Street Cinema

That is…until today.

In addition to the spot’s six screens starring Mickey Mouse, Main Street Cinema is now showcasing…merchandise.

Main Street Cinema

Here’s a close-up of one of the displays…

Main Street Cinema

Nothing major has been changed when it comes to the room itself, as the animated shorts still play in the background. But this just won’t be the same little movie theatre stop as it used to be if these items remain.

Main Street Cinema

Currently, an easel in front of the Cinema invites you to “Come on in” for “Cartoons and Collectibles.”

Main Street Cinema

And while merchandise is plenty of fun, I’m thinking that, in this case, we’d like to see more of those cartoons, and less of the collectibles. How about you?

What do you think of this change? Do you think it’s here to stay? Let us know in the comments below!

Lots of new treats have made their way to Jolly Holiday in Disneyland this past week. And if you know us, you know we had to try them all!

New Jolly Holiday Treats

When we were there a few days ago we tried the new chocolate-potato-chip donut. And today, we’re reviewing three more treats…and they’re all inspired by beloved Disney characters!

You can now get a Goofy cookies ‘n milk macaron, a Tinkerbell coconut cheesecake, and a Steamboat Willie cupcake.

Let’s kick the reviews off with the Goofy cookies ‘n milk macaron. This is a classic macaron with edible cookie dough and “milk” panna cotta. We loved the bright orange and blue colors along with the fun green Goofy hat made out of white chocolate!

Goofy Cookies N Milk Macaron

We really enjoyed the cookie dough part, but I mean how could you not? Edible cookie dough is the BEST, and this version is done well! The outer portion of the treat tasted like nothing more than a standard macaron.

Goofy Cookies N Milk Macaron

It was the “milk” that kind of got us… . It tasted super artificial and had a weird slimy consistency. You know we’re not all fans of panna cotta around here at DFB, and this was not a good version of the custard-y dessert.

Goofy Cookies N Milk Macaron

Overall, our taste-testers weren’t too fond of this new treat, despite the great cookie dough addition, and said they prefer the raspberry rose Mickey macaron. The Goofy cookies ‘n milk macaron is $5.99 at Jolly Holiday before a discount and should only be around for a limited time.

What do you think about the new Goofy cookies ‘n milk macaron? Give it a try and let us know what you thought!
