It’s Thanksgiving week, so you know that I’m dreaming of FOOD! Visions of holiday snacks from all over the Walt Disney World Resort are filling my head, and if you’re looking for something to do after all of that Black Friday shopping, you should come check out everything our parks and resorts have to offer!
Visiting one of our theme parks? Then be sure to pick up one of the many holiday treats created just for the season. Try the Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwich from Dino-Bite Snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom or a Cinnamon-Apple Lunch Box Tart from Woody’s Lunch Box at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can also check out the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, featuring Holiday Kitchens celebrating the flavors of the season from cultures all around the world. Or if you’re at Magic Kingdom Park, there’s a merry array of offerings available all day as well as a delicious selection of items exclusive to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. For all the yummy details, you can check out my Foodie Guide here!
At Disney Springs, be sure to stop by Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, which has transformed into Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar! With tons of holiday decorations and a special limited-time menu starting on Nov. 29, this festive holiday overlay is one you definitely won’t want to miss.
While you’re at Disney Springs, be sure to check out all of the fun holiday offerings throughout the district, like the ADORABLE Reindeer Pluto chocolate piñata at The Ganachery, the holiday dome cakes and macaron lollipops at Amorette’s Patisserie, and more! And don’t forget to take a stroll through the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail, which features more than 20 holiday trees themed to your favorite Disney films. You’ll even find some fun food and beverage offerings here including eggnog, holiday cocktails, churro bites, cotton candy, holiday cookies, and more to snack on while you take in all of the beautiful décor.
And finally, if you’re a fan of gingerbread, you’ll definitely want to go resort hopping to see all of the beautiful gingerbread displays located at many of our resort hotels across property. This year, we’re welcoming two new resorts to the gingerbread display family – Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. For a list of all the displays across property and where to find your favorite gingerbread treats, check out my recent blog post with all the details!
