Well we're a heinz 57 of accents in this house - I originate from the land of Cheryl Cole, my parents are from Yorkshire (not sure how to describe that one to you lol) and dh is a Brummie (think Mr and Mrs Weasley in Harry Potter) - we live in East Anglia and think we are now pretty accent-free but I'm fairly sure you'd disagree.

Monkey Cupcake

Hi Faline,

That cupcake was made for DSis. She was born under the Chinese sign Monkey and even before anyone in the family read that on a restaurant menu, we've all called her the monkey in the family (in any playground you would find my little sister up in the monkey bars). Anyway she first grabbed the cupcake off the shelf at Old Port Royale Market Place because of the name.

But it really was good for her beyond the name. She found the frosting creamy and peanut buttery and the cake - dark and rich chocolate. She was surprised when she bit into it to find the banana cream core and she described it to me as mashed bananas and cream - there were chunks of little banana in it - not just cream. She loved it.

I don't care for peanut butter so I just took her word for it.

They did rotate and change up the dessert offerings at Old Port Royale - sometimes there were strawberries and chocolate sauce, fruit tarts, various krispy treats, and at least two types of cupcakes. I was impressed with the fact the food was made on site at the resort (thought only the deluxes would have such facitilites but the food court kitchen was more than microwaves and walk in freezers) and the fact the food in the grab-and-go section (where the desserts are placed) were labled with dates.

Hope this helps and thanks for reading!

Hi MickeyNicki - always enjoy reading your reviews. Thanks for stopping by! (DSis and I were born in Naples; mom and dad - and grandma - still live there!)

Well today's post (when I get it done) will have NO Cupcakes. (There may be rice krispy treats, smores, cookies, and a chocolate cake from California Grill though... I'm sorry.)

Mmm. Dirt cake.

DH and I are really toying with a dining plan for next trip, but it wouldn't be the QS . . . however, if we do the DDP as opposed to the DxDP, this will definitely come in handy.

Afraid I might spend all our snack credits whatever plan it is in Karamell-Kuche though . . . .

No. Next time. Next trip will have to be in a cooler time of year. It's too hard to eat rich desserts when you are sweaty and sitting outside in the blazing summer Florida sun. I think the lesson is, there is always something you have to put off for another trip!

You will spend every credit in Karamell Kuche - just wait for the next food posting - everyone is going to need to have a candy bar handy while reading it. The photos are dangerous - you've been warned!

Main Street Bakery - best fastpass sprint reward ever

So no breakfast bounty today (day four). Honestly it was becoming old already and today we're at Magic Kingdom and if there was one thing I learned from my hours of reading DIS - it's to eat breakfast at Main Street Bakery!

So here goes two snack credits:



Hot cinnamon roll.

In all my years of coming to Magic Kingdom I had never had one, so for those that complain that it isn't as good as it used to be (not as warm/hot or not as large) I can't join you. To me it was warm, hot, gooey, and sweet. And the best reward this non sprinter ever got for dashing off for a fastpass (I had picked up Splash Mountain fastpasses as soon as the ropes dropped).



chocolate croissant.

DSis got this for herself. She said it was the best she'd ever had anywhere. It was dark chocolate and the chocolate was room temperature so it wasn't hard like it can sometimes be. The croissant was soft and flaky - just as you would want it.

Each were one snack credit. We had brought bottle water in the park with us.

Mmmmmm food porn.

Got to hop on board. Not only are we food porn addicts, but after 4 years on the QSDP we don't want to fall into the rut of eating the same favorites. Hoping for some great new ideas! Thanks for sharing.
