Couponing and saving your way to a Walt Disney World vacation? When you get there, food will be as important a daily event as that ride on Space Mountain. Here’s a look at the Walt Disney World snack you can’t afford to miss, priced at a totally reasonable $3.99…the Disney cupcake.
Picture this… the S’mores Cupcake from Wilderness Lodge
Not only is $3.99 completely reasonable for a cupcake bigger than your hand, but just snacking at Walt Disney World‘s Wilderness Lodge is a treat in itself. With a graham cracker-flavored base, a toasted-marshmallow roof, and a piece of Hershey’s chocolate to top it off, hop on over to Roaring Forks Snacks at Wilderness Lodge for a Disney S’mores cupcake.
The Holiday-Themed Vanilla Cupcake
Holidays are simply beautiful at Walt Disney World, and the snack foods are decorated with equal gusto. This Christmas cupcake was hangin’ out at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, of all places, in a refrigerated case in the gift shop. When you pick up your t-shirt and Mickey key chain, have a Cast Member box up a $3.99 cupcake as well. This treat was vanilla cake with vanilla icing, and I split it with three kids. Yup- one cupcake- four ways. It’s not a meal split in four, but rather just a pre-lunch snack. Sharing is actually creating fun family memories anyway. Sweet, sweet, sweet- the vanilla icing is incredibly sweet. You’ll find vanilla-flavored cupcakes readily available throughout the parks and resorts all over the Disney property, plus Goofy’s Candy Co. at Downtown Disney. Christmas trees at Christmas, hearts for Valentine’s Day, and on and on. Kids especially love the specialty decorated versions.
Now for my new cupcake favorite in a fabulous after-dark Disney spot…
The Spiced Apple Cupcake
This Spiced Apple cupcake resides at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at the Contempo Cafe. Vanilla cake with a hint of cinnamon, vanilla icing with a hint of caramel, the real delight is the gooey apple-cranberry filling. The Contemporary Resort is a relaxing place to spend some quality time after dark, with soft lighting and a monorail whooshing by for an added touch of Disney magic, and you’ll be listening to the sound of happy vacationers over at Chef Mickey’s.
$3.99. In terms of the price of Disney food, $3.99 is practically free. Practically…
Thanks for coming along for a photographical Disney ride, and we’ll see you in the cupcake line!
