1.) Do you think cupcakes would be good for an evening cruise in the summer. (I worry about these decadent things surviving outside) - I guess they do this all the time, but I'd hate to order a bunch of these and then have them turn into a muck mess. Especially at $4+ a pop!

2.) I'm wondering if I should order something a little extra special (flavor, decorated, etc) for each of the kids... our son will be turning 12 and our "princess".... er, daughter, will be turning 6.

Could someone lend their thoughts.... either on decorating ideas, or if you think in the heat of the summer evening, cupcakes would be a good idea?

Thanks!

I agree with Ilivetogo - Disney cupcakes are HUGE and it's nice to have a plate and a fork and knife. That sounds like a really cute idea though, to bring the cupcakes on board - do they have tables on the boats? Or maybe mini cupcakes would work better? I've seen those at Art of Animation, not sure if they still have them.

The Contempo Cafe has some pretty birthday cupcakes with Minnie and Mickey toppers.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Not sure which one you're talking about, so ....

The 1st one is chocolate fudge and we got that at Roaring Forks at the Wilderness Lodge. (I like to visit the resorts to check them out.)

The 2nd one is Oreo Bonbon and that's from the Boardwalk Cafe on the boardwalk, of course.

We also shared the Strawberry Lemonade cupcake at the Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary Resort.

How was the chocolate fudge cupcake? Looks delicious. Is it available anywhere else, maybe at one of the parks?

Why do I keep coming back to this thread? My thighs' circumference just increased by 3 inches; I will not mention what happened to my backside. Somehow, I fear, this will not deter me from drooling over these cupcake pictures.

I have to say the Chocolate Fudge one was the best out of the bunch! Very good. Least fav was the Oreo one. Kinda bland tasting and the frosting is whipped cream, not icing, which I don't care for.

I am not positive which parks/resorts you can get which cupcakes, but I know somewhere in this thread is the link to the cupcake "list" that DOES tell where you can get each one. I'd have to go back and find it. (unless someone else can post it again .... )

Actually, now that you mention it, I forgot how huge these are!

I wonder if something like cookies would be a better option. Otherwise, I may have to check to see if they can do something for the mini ones. I sure like the ones you pictured with the minnie and mickey toppers on them!

Thanks for the input!

Everyone always mentions the walking to offset the sweets, etc., but sadly, all that walking probably equates to a few Raisinets worth of calories. Seriously, it stinks. I'll eat 'em anyway, but I'm avoiding sweets for these last couple of weeks before we go, hoping to shed at least a couple of pounds in anticipation of my cupcake splurge while there. There's a lot of sitting and waiting in line at Disney - I never feel like we walk any more than I would at any other amusement park and we do the parks every day open to close for our whole vacation. Why oh why can't Disney food be MAGICALLY free of calories and fat?!??

This is a really fun thread and I have been subscribed forever. Wondering if anyone else had my experience. After drooling for months over cupcakes and planning which ones I was going to try...got there last May and just didn't want any! I did end up eating my son's leftover chocolate peanut butter Darth Vader cupcake and it was to-die-for! Now, the year before...before the thread...I did have two, maybe three cupcakes. It's just so strange to me that I was never in the mood for one after all the looking forward to them because of this thread!

I do think part of the problem is that it was hot in May and I am never as hungry when it's hot...more interested in cold drinks and fruit!

You know what is funny is that I do not eat sweets. I would rather have the salty stuff (which I am not supposed to have). But I like to think that vacation food does not count.

Got to be the heat! We go fall and winter and what we can't eat there, we take home! Disney spoils us for cupcakes anywhere else. 18 days until my next one!!!

I like to think that too (or perhaps delude myself is the better description), but my thighs seem to have a mind of their own and they apparently don't buy my theory.

YES! I totally understand. I was dying to try a cupcake from Starring Roles - specifically the red velvet - for almost a year. But when I got to the park, it was 100 degrees with 100% humidity, and I had been so stuffed from all of my other meals, that I didn't even get a chance or really feel like trying it! But I plan on trying many, many more on my next trip!
