  • The “Happily Ever After” Cupcake is the signature dessert – red velvet cake with yellow buttercream icing.
  • Perfect for Instagramming with a “Happily Ever After” chocolate garnish.
  • Chocolate Almond Cake features raspberry sauce in the center and a fresh raspberry on top.
  • And Mickey is the muse for the Oreo Mickey Treat, whipped Oreo panna cotta topped with two chocolate ears and sprinkled with chocolate pearls on top of an Oreo.

Whispering Canyon Cafe breakfast experience

Sun, 2017-08-06 21:07
Our family loves the Whispering Canyon, it's one of our favorite experiences and we try to go every year. We will be returning to WDW this fall but WC dinner will not fit into our schedule. We have never tried the breakfast. For those who have experienced both, is the breakfast atmosphere as exciting as the dinner? We have two boys that love to experience all of the rowdiness that WC brings, and we tried lunch one year but it was pretty empty and dull.

Thanks!

No availability in May

Sun, 2017-08-06 13:41
We were planning on going on the wedding planning trip in May. I went to compare prices of the value resorts, but it says there isn't any availability in the all stars at all and art of animation only has family suites available. What is going on in May?

Is it still the case that Annual Passholders cannot purchase the Disney Dining Plan (unless they purchase a room / tickets / DDP package)?

2018 Fantasmic! Dining Packages Changes

Sat, 2017-08-05 18:42
Changes have been announced for the 2018 Fantasmic! Dining Packages at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Effective January 1, 2018; each package will include:

  • One entrée, dessert ,& nonalcoholic beverage or One buffet per Guest.
  • One voucher for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area per Guest


From 2017 and prior years, the new package has removed the appetizer from the meal offering at the Table Service Locations.

The new 2018 packages will be priced (not including tax or gratuity) as follows:

Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano
  • $42 per Guest Ages 10 and Up
  • $18 Per Guests Ages 3 - 9


Hollywood & Vine

Breakfast
  • $41 per Guest Ages 10 and Up
  • $24 Per Guests Ages 3 - 9

  • $35 Per Guests Ages 3 - 9


The Hollywood Brown Derby
  • $62 per Guest Ages 10 and Up
  • $22 Per Guests Ages 3 – 9



The two table service locations have marginally lowered their price with the reduction in meal offerings, but the price reduction ($3) may not be commensurate to the reduction in value for many Guests.

Campfires/S'mores at certain resorts

Sat, 2017-08-05 16:34
So this is our first trip staying at Beach Club (or anywhere that had campfires and smores) - just a couple questions. I think I heard you can buy the smores stuff there - does that include the sticks to roast the marshmallows? Is it done every night and what time does it start/end? I just thought that sounded neat - as we've never had the opportunity to do that on our Disney trips.

Thanks!

Epcot questions

Sat, 2017-08-05 16:31
Trying to plan our trip and determine how much time we want to spend in each park. We haven't been to Disney in two years - (since november 2015) - and I haven't kept up as much on Disney news as I usually do.

Epcot - the only thing I know of that has changed since then is the Frozen ride has opened. I thought I had heard things about the exhibits in Innoventions closing - we saw things like the Great Piggy Bank Adventure was gone (bummer for us - bc our kids really liked that). When we went into Innoventions the last trip, it looked pretty bare. Is Sum of All Thrills still there? The kids really like that as well and I seem to recall hearing that might possibly be going too.

I'm sure the fast pass for Illuminations was there when we were there last - but I can't remember. Where is the viewing area for that? We aren't thinking about getting fast passes for that - just trying to determine where the best place to watch it would be. Anyone have a favorite spot? How early do you get there to get a spot? We are going over the holidays so I assume it will be pretty crowded.

Thanks! Just getting back into the groove on the Disney trip planning and realizing I have a lot of questions!

Menus

Is it possible that the menus have changed. I went on disney website and this one to look at menus and there seems to be a difference between the two.

Thanks

Express Pass....is it worth it?

Fri, 2017-08-04 21:16
Never been to Universal. We are going to do the 2 park 1 day pass and primarily stick to Harry Potter world. We are visiting mid November (week before Thanksgiving week). We are not staying on property at Universal (we are staying at WDW). The Express Passes for Universal are about $90 extra each on top of the ticket park entrance. Quite a costly day! However this is probably the one and only time I will be bringing my mom to see this so I am willing to do this if it is really worth it. However I have no desire to spend the extra money if I really don't need to . She is older with mobility issues. Can she ride any of the Harry Potter rides? The only other ride I thought she might be interested in was Jurasic Park???
Thoughts???

Transportation from WDW to Universal?

Fri, 2017-08-04 20:58
I am planning another trip to WDW! I am taking my mom who is older and has mobility issues. She really wants to go see Harry Potter "world" at Universal. We are not renting a car for this trip. We are staying on property at WDW for our stay and going one day to Universal. What are our transportation options to get to and from Universal from WDW resort?
Thanks for any responses!
