I think I want to order a fun cake as a surprise for my best friend in honor of our birthdays when we are at Disney. I can't decide which dinner would be best to do it. We already have these dinners scheduled:
Kona
Le Cellier
The Wave
Hollywood Brown Derby

There are only 3 of us, so we don't need a big cake, but I don't want the most basic kind either.
Any advice? I was thinking a minicake. I also saw the chocolate figures at Epcot and wondered about those. How big they are, if they are as much fun as a cake, etc.

Update... Chose the Contemporary after reading aloof the positive reviews. Can't wait to finish figuring out the details. I emailed yesterday at 3:30, and before 9:00 this morning had gotten a reply!

Good choice! I was going to recommend you get the cake at the Wave. I had a cake made by the Contemporary pastry staff for a dinner at Whispering Canyon and was not disappointed!

Thanks!! I'm calling tomorrow to officially order it, but Chef Brian said he would do a 6" cake with buttercream icing, a standing up image of Belle with a book in her hand on white chocolate, and red roses. I don't like the bright yellow used for her so often! It's not pretty or girly.
So, we will see! I'm hoping I can choose yummy flavors and fillings.

DH and I celebrated our 24th anniversary at WDW in June. We stopped by Publix on our first day in town and ordered a cake and picked it up the next day. It was $19 and it was delicious!!

It was chocolate cake with vanilla custard inside and butter cream frosting.

Here are photos:

I wanted to share this Small World-themed cake made for a wedding at Disneyland—I think any of these tiers would make a beautiful 6- or 8-inch cake!

Is it possible to pick up a mini-cake from Boardwalk bakery?

We will be in Disney for my DD's sixteenth birthday, she wants to have dinner at Via Napoli and I would like to walk over and pick up a cake for her before dinner.

Howdy all!

I've been lurking for awhile and finally called yesterday to start talking to someone about a cake for our trip in Sept. It's DS 4th birthday and naturally he wants pirates, so I called and spoke to Theresa at I believe Yacht Club. She emailed me right away with two pictures of rather unimpressive cakes they have done with pirate themes and I responded back with pictures that show what I want more or less. I still haven't heard back from her with a price quote. How long did it take for everyone else here to get their quotes?

There are so many factors that affect response time. I wouldn't worry about it unless it's been more than a week or two.

I didn't read through every post, so someone else may have already pointed this out, but I thought I would make sure.

I just called the number listed on page one of this thread for cakes for BoG and was told it is a new number as about a month ago. For MK cakes you now call...
407 824 1763 hours are M-F 9-5 Sat. 10-5 Eastern time. Also they give this email.... guest.services.billing@disneyworld.com
. I just sent an email, but obviously I haven't heard anything. When/if I do I will let you all know, so we can verify that the email is an option as well.

Okay, as I sent this I recieved an email alert, which was the following email in response to the one I just sent.

"Greetings from the Walt Disney World Resort!

Thank you for writing to us. We look forward to assisting you with your billing inquiry.

I want to personally assure you that your message has been received. Depending on the nature of your request and the amount of research required, our response time may vary; however, a member of my Guest Experience Services Team will contact you within five days.

We look forward to helping you with your billing needs.

Sincerely,


Debbie Bellavia-Hart
Director, Guest Experience Services"


I didn't have any type of billing question. FYI I will post when they follow up with me.

I believe the person you spoke to was misinformed. The number they gave you is a general information line, and the people who answer it will simply transfer you to the main Cake Hotline (listed in Post #1 of this thread).

Custom cakes for the Magic Kingdom are made by the pastry team at the Contemporary Resort, so it's always easiest to call or email them directly at 407-824-2955 or WDW.Contemporary.Cake.Order@disney.com.

Thank you both. I suspected something like this. Problem is this cake is a surprise for my youngest, so when I call I have to do it without her around...which is seldom. I hate getting run arounds.
