Golden Oak Outpost is a great wilderness food stop. Located on the path between Adventureland and Frontierland (and Pecos Bill’s neighbor) in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Golden Oak Outpost features a tiny and frequently-changing menu of mostly fried, delicious grub.

Hope you’re having a great weekend! We’re back with another DFB Video this weekend, and we’re taking you on a food tour of Epcot’s beautiful Morocco Pavilion!

Morocco Pavilion

It’s no secret that the Morocco Pavilion is one of the most gorgeous and immersive Pavilions in Epcot’s World Showcase. What does tend to remain more of a mystery to many guests is this Pavilion’s food options. So we’d love to take you on a tour and show you some of the terrific and tasty options including one of the top Counter Service restaurants in Disney World. [Read more…]

What’s New at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney World Resorts: February 17, 2018

We just learned that Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be opening on June 30 — but in the meantime, we’ve searched out What’s New NOW at Hollywood Studios (and nearby Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts!). Let’s gooooooo!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Menus and Eats

At pop-up bars around the park, guests can order two new seasonal drinks. Baby Blues is comprised of Tito’s Handmade Vodka (SHOUTOUT AUSTIN, TX!), Bacardi Superior Rum, Tanqueray Gin, Blue Curacao, Sweet-and-Sour, and Sprite! And you get a glow cube, of course.

Green Screen is Absolut Pears Vodka, Midori, Pineapple Juice, and Sprite (again with a glow cube!).

(Anyone else as disturbed as I am on the pricing of these?)

News! MICKEY WAFFLES Now Available at Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow Refreshments

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ MICKEY WAFFLE?!

Most of us like-minded Disney food fans sure do. But the thing is, without an Advance Dining Reservation for a Table Service restaurant, it can be hard to find them inside the parks at Counter Service locations, even though they’re a staple in the Resort food courts. Last year, you could find Mickey Waffles at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor when they served a breakfast menu, but that only lasted a very short while.

Fortunately, now they have a new home in Magic Kingdom: Sleepy Hollow Refreshments! A fitting spot, since Sleepy Hollow is home to the popular Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich and the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Nutella.

In fact, Sleepy Hollow has offered waffles topped with your choice of powdered sugar or strawberries and whipped cream for ages. But, while pleasant, they sure weren’t MICKEY-SHAPED.

But NOW

YES — it’s a JUMBO Mickey Waffle!! Clearly, we ordered up the Mickey Waffle with Strawberries and Whipped Cream (for $6.79 or a snack credit (!!!!) on the Disney Dining Plan).
