Cannoli Cake – Animal Kingdom – Favorite Food Friday

Cannoli Cake – Animal Kingdom – Favorite Food Friday

Our Favorite Food This Week: Cannoli Cake
Location: Pizzafari – Animal Kingdom
Price: $4.99 (DDP)

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.    Animal Kingdom food has really started to kick up this year.   New menu items have started to pop up and we are always looking for the next sweet treat.   On this visit to the park we checked out the Cannoli Cake, although not new, it was our first time checking this out.   First off, i wish that the cannoli on top of the cake was left off to the side rather than on the cake as ours had soaked up the moisture from the cake and was soggy.   Other than that, the cake was pretty good, the overall texture was more cheesecake than cake cake :).   If you are a fan of cannolis this would be something you would definitely want to try.   If you are at Animal Kingdom – where do you go for a quick sweet snack?  

Tomorrowland Speedway, Space Mountain, and More Holiday Overlays this year at the Magic Kingdom

Tomorrowland Speedway, Space Mountain, and More Holiday Overlays this year at the Magic Kingdom

Disneyland always has the amazing Nightmare before Christmas overlay on Haunted Mansion, so it’s about time we see more Holiday Overlays at Walt Disney World.   This year, during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, select Magic Kingdom attractions are receiving special enhancements just for the holidays!

Tomorrowland Speedway is being decked out in thousands of lights and stylized decor.    Over at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, there will be an all-new show during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.   Mad Tea Party will kick it up a notch with a wild and wacky Christmas party filled with lights and music and the one I’m looking most forward to, Space Mountain will be filled with dazzling lights and high energy holiday music.

All this sounds amazing, to top it all off is the new “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks” show.   So much to see, I can’t wait for the Holidays.    They will be here before you know it…….

Get tickets today for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The party starts at Magic Kingdom Park on November 8 and is offered select nights through December 22, 2019.

Favorite Food Friday – Chocolate Banana Cream Almond Crisp

Favorite Food Friday – Chocolate Banana Cream Almond Crisp

Our Favorite Food This Week: Chocolate Banana Cream Almond Crisp
Location: ABC Commissary – Hollywood Studios
Price: $4.99 (DDP)

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.    Hollywood Studios is our destination today, just couple more months before this park is filled to the brim with Star Wars fans :).   The Chocolate Banana Cream Almond Crisp is a mouthful to say and a treasure trove of textures.  The top is a chocolate mousse a cake in the middle and crispies on the bottom.   Overall the look at the textures of this dessert is awesome, as for the flavor, it could have used a bit more.    I was expecting bold chocolate and banana flavors, but we mainly got banana.   Overall it was just ok, it was a large dessert so if you are looking for a large banana dessert this might just be it.   What your favorite dessert at Hollywood Studios???   

Favorite Food Friday – Taco Trio

Favorite Food Friday – Taco Trio

Our Favorite Food This Week: Taco Trio
Location: Pacos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe – Magic Kingdom
Price: $10.99 (DDP)

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.    For some reason today I have been craving the Taco Trio at Pacos Bill at the Magic Kingdom.   I think it may have something to do with the Fixin’s Bar where you can customize your taco just how you like it.   The Taco Trio is of course 3 tacos of your choice, you can choose from seasoned ground beef, seasoned chicken, pork carnitas or spicy breaded cauliflower topped with five-spice yogurt and pineapple salsa.  My favorites are the ground beef and pork.   At the fixin’s bar you can add shredded cheese,  sour cream, lettuce, salsa and more.   As you can see in the picture we also usually grab some chips to share on the side.     What’s your favorite Peco’s Bill meal????   

Favorite Food Friday – Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich

Favorite Food Friday – Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich

Our Favorite Food This Week: Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich 
Location: Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom
Price: $6.49

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.    This week we head over to the Magic Kingdom to once again check out a dessert.   This one combines two of my favorite food groups Ice Cream and Churros.    It’s the Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments at the entrance of Liberty Square.   Move over PB&J, we have a new sandwich in town!   Well, that is if you can eat it like a sandwich :).    Our sandwich was stuffed with ice cream and there was no way to get your mouth around it.   So we resorted to a knife and fork.   I will say it got better as the ice cream melted and the churro softened as it absorbed the ice cream, the cinnamon from the churro flavored the ice cream as well.   Overall this was a wonderful dessert and definitely will be on our list of things to enjoy on a hot day at the Magic Kingdom.   Do you have a favorite Magic Kingdom Dessert???
