Okay, I love going to Disney for MANY reasons, but I have a special passion for Disney food! I don’t know what it is about the food there, but planning out our dining never fails to get me excited! Whether it’s eating at a Disney Signature Restaurant, or just grabbing a Mickey bar off of an ice cream cart, there’s just something magical about Disney food to me. There are just so many yummy things to eat at Disney World! I’ve recently become obsessed with all of the amazing snacks there, and my newest delicious addiction is centered around sweet treats found all over the “World”. Mainly the many incredible looking cupcakes I see everywhere when I’m down there. Most all of them are HUGE, beautifully decorated, and only cost one snack credit (which is part of the Disney Dining Plan, and I will explain all of that in another post). If you happen to not be on the Disney Dining Plan (DDP), then you’ll find that these cupcakes are still a really great value, since they are all around $4, AND most all of them are so big that you can split them between two people (of three if you are splitting one with children). While I was there over spring break this year, we spent a good bit of time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (DHS… hopefully, you’ll get the hang of all of my Disney abbreviations as we go along) and, as I had made it a personal goal to try as many cupcakes as I could get my hands on, I convinced the other girls in my group (this trip was a girls only one) to stop by Starring Rolls Cafe one morning so that I could accomplish this goal. I mean, who doesn’t want to eat cupcakes for breakfast!? Well, although I’m certain there are those of you who find that idea appalling, we found it enchanting! And so between the four of us, we got to try a few of the most popular cupcakes they offered. Here’s what we had (sorry about the poor quality, I only had my phone at the time) :
I actually ordered the Marble Cupcake, and it was very good. The frosting was a bit on the intense side of sugary though, and of course it was too big for me to eat (once again, I highly recommend splitting these), but overall it did not disappoint. Now, the other girls with me let me try each of their cupcakes, and out of those I decided the Red Velvet Cheesecake was my favorite. The Butterfinger one had crushed Butterfinger candy and a chocolate coating encasing the frosting (which was surprisingly vanilla), and the chocolate peanut butter was outstanding, but, as you might guess, very rich. All in all they each had their own uniqueness, and we were happy with all of them. My next trip down to Disney World will hopefully allow me try other cupcakes, and of course whatever else I see that looks like it’s calling to me. Guess it’s a good thing I don’t eat like I do down there all the time…I’d be running 24/7 to burn all those crazy calories! Of course in between trips I will continue to obsess over what snack I want to try next. It’s all part of the fun!
