Candy Apples: The Perfect Walt Disney World Treat

by on June 8, 2015

Candy Cauldron Apples

These apples are from the Candy Cauldron at Downtown Disney, from around St. Patrick’s day.

There are tons of delectable choices of sweet treats scattered throughout Walt Disney World, but none offer quite the combo of taste and adorableness of a Mickey apple. There are an endless variety of Disney World candy apples available: from the super simple (and yet still ridiculously tasty) plain caramel apple or carnival-style candied apple to the elaborate specialty apple that has been shaped like Cinderella’s carriage.

One of the things that I love to do on every trip to Disney is check out what new options have appeared, and pick one (or two) to try. With the constantly changing choices, it’s possible try a different one on every trip to Disney World, and never try the same one twice, especially with the holiday apples.

Let’s look at some of the gorgeous options!

Menu Monday: Desserts Aboard the Disney Wonder

Disney Wonder Desserts

A Work Of Art – It tasted as good as it looks!

If you’ve been following along you probably already know by now that I was lucky enough to enjoy a spectacular Disney Alaska Cruise this summer aboard the Disney Wonder. Between rounds of bingo and incredible Port Adventures like dog sledding, riding the rails and soaring in a floatplane, I managed to fit in some time to eat. Talking to several cruisers during my planning, I discovered that dining onboard the cruise ship was a large part of the vacation for most people. Being an extremely picky eater myself, I planned on focusing my meals mainly on dessert.

Please continue on to see my dessert lover’s photo diary as I ate my way around the Disney Wonder!

Observations from the Universal Orlando Resort: October 6, 2013

by on October 9, 2013

For this edition of “Observations” from the Universal Orlando Resort,  I’m going to take a page out of the format that blogger Guy Selga uses instead of the one I have used for previous observations pieces on Disney’s Night of Joy or an August weekend at Universal. They say a picture says a thousand words, but I counter that with “a review of a Transformers action figure can also be 1,000 words.” However, let’s see where conventional wisdom gets us. (Remember that you can click on any picture to view it full size)

While walking through CityWalk on our way to the parks, the first thing we noticed was that the Endangered Species store has already become extinct. Construction walls are set up outside and the place has been gutted. This area now joins the old Pastamore Market counter service location and Latin Quarter as locations being completely remodeled. Word is the Endangered Species space will be used for Starbucks (which would move from the second level of CityWalk), the Pastamore location will become a new Red Oven brick oven pizza place, and Latin Quarter is rumored to be a new Mexican-themed dining restaurant.
