Foodie Friday: Disney-Inspired Snack

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the ones I mean…where every day seems like Monday? I won’t bore you with the details, except that I’m pretty sure the Snow Queen is holding Spring hostage until I go see and review Frozen! To celebrate Foodie Friday, I’m linking up with the Favorite Food Friday blog hop hosted by Disney Day by Day, and sharing my perfect Disney-inspired snack: Nothing fancy, but everything warm and wonderful: French Press coffee (in a Disney press, of course!) and a piece of English Toffee I brought home from the Main Street Confectionery at the Magic Kingdom. Does it get any better than this on another “it’s how cold out there??” January afternoon? Thanks for joining me for Foodie Friday – what’s your favorite way to bring Disney comfort food home?

Disney Dining Tips for Special Dietary Needs

“What are we going to eat?” is a major question for any family on vacation, but when you add in food allergies and special diets, it becomes a lot more crucial. It’s no secret that we’re devoted foodies around here, or that there are certain foods that we don’t go anywhere near. With a family of 6, Celiac Disease, nut allergy, mollusk allergy, and “I only eat these 5 foods”-itis, here are my top Disney dining tips for families with special dietary needs. There are three basic levels of Disney dining: Table Service, Quick Service, and Snacks. They’re all delicious (of course!), but they all have their quirks. I’ll show you how to navigate all three. Disney Table Service Dining with Special Diets Table service dining is the most expensive of the dining options at Walt Disney World. It includes any sit-down restaurant where a cast member comes to...

Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow. Enjoy the ride as we share how to have a Disney Thanksgiving at home. Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu For some of us, the magic of Disney begins with the food. I love that aspect of the parks, because it’s something I can re-create at home. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It’s an autoimmune disorder that treats gluten – the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley – as dangerous and attacks. Unfortunately, my overactive immune system goes a little overboard and I end up as collateral damage. Even the smallest amount of gluten can make me sick for days. No fun. I’m not worried about traveling to Disney. Actually, it’s one of the few places I don’t worry about whether or not I’ll be able to eat safely. They’ve got this under control, but...

Gingerbread Houses Around Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail. I am so excited to rejoin the Magical Blogorail this month, after taking several months off. This time our theme is Christmas Must-Dos at Walt Disney World. Sure, it might be October and right now the Disney parks are full of pumpkins and not-so-scary scarecrows, but if you have a holiday trip coming up (or just wish you did!) this is the time to start planning your activities. My Christmas must-do at Walt Disney World are the gingerbread houses. I’ve never actually made a gingerbread house. But I want to! Every year, I see these amazing works of architectural artwork and think, “I could do that…” (Maybe. If I had a lot more time.) And of course Disney goes completely over the top...
