Main Street Bakery - July 5th


My roommate and I decided to spend the afternoon at the Magic Kingdom. Neither of us had lunch, so we stopped in at the Main Street Bakery after the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.



Nothing says lunch like an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich!








Can you believe the size of those things?! Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies with vanilla bean ice cream… Doesn’t get any better than that. They do tend to be a little messy though. We both agree that these are worthy of the Captain….



While at the Bakery, this happened to catch my eye:








Dinner or Dessert?

This was almost too cute to eat! The “hamburger” is actually a chocolate cupcake, while the “hot dog” is two ladyfingers with frosting in the middle. The “fries” were like a very thin cookie with sugar sprinkled on top.

Unfortunately, nothing really stood out taste wise. There was way too much frosting and everything was really bland. The “buns” tasted like cardboard and the “fries” were kind of soggy… The chocolate cupcake was the only saving grace, since it actually tasted pretty good. This was much better to look at than to taste, so it receives a…


Next time I’ll stick to a different gourmet cupcake. Like the chocolate peanut butter ones I saw there a different day. They looked amazing…

The hamburger and hot dog are so cute but I agree that hot dog must've been way too much frosting! I thought you'd say the dog was chocolate cake!

The hamburger/hot dog/fry combo looks adorable! Too bad it didn't taste great. It reminds me of those cake competitions on TV where pastry chefs create the coolest, most detailed designs ever, but nobody eats them because the cakes probably taste horrible.

Wow what I wouldn't give for one of those ice cream cookie sandwiches right now! I'm pretty sure all my favorite desserts involve chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately that means they are incredibly calorie laden... a colossal frosting covered ice cream cookie sandwich, anyone ?

That hot dog and hamburger look adorable. I love frosting in all quantities so maybe the hot dog would work for me.

Sleepy Hollow - July 8th


Two of my roommates and I decided to go to the Magic Kingdom for opening. And yes I did have to work later that night; until 2:45 in fact – love extra magic hours. We went on Space Mountain, met Tiana, and got our Sorcerer Cards in Liberty Square. Why hello there Sleepy Hollow! Great place for breakfast, don’t you think?

Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich



This was my choice and a darn good one at that! I absolutely love nutella, so this was just perfect. Plus look at all that fresh fruit; I’d say that’s healthy, wouldn’t you?

Funnel Cake dusted with powdered sugar

My roommate had this. I’m pretty sure this was healthy than mine . The funnel cakes here are cooked to perfection and made to order.

This was a great way to start the day and so it receives a…

I shouldn't be reading this thread at 4 in the morning, as it's making me super hungry.

What?! That's incredible! I'm surprised by your willpower I would have been there every single day if I were you.

Yes, you definitely should! The portion sizes are quite good for the pricing too

I've been following your blog by the way. I love it!
If your daughter loves ice cream, then you guys should definitely stop by here. It's also just a short walk or boat ride from Epcot. And thank you for reading my blog!

YES! It completely reminded me of that too. One of those things that's just really fun to look at.

I'm always up for those ice cream cookie sandwiches. They are way too addicting! I'm sure the hot dog would be right up your alley - it was a ton of frosting.

No, that's probably a poor decision indeed But then again, I always get hungry when reading dining reviews despite the time.

A Continuation of July 8th Deliciousness


If you recall we had a very healthy start to our day. One roommate left to go to work, so the two of us remaining decided to have a snack at Storybook Treats. Yup, that means ice cream!

Fudge Brownie Sundae


Chocolate Soft-Serve Ice Cream Cone


This is one of the few places that has soft serve and boy is it delicious! My roommate had the brownie sundae, while I just had the cone. I love soft-serve; the only problem is that it melts way too fast. It can be quite a struggle to keep up and not make a mess, haha.

This was good, but definitely not as good as the wonderful ice cream at the Plaza. And so it receives a…



Since we had had our dessert, we concluded that it was time for lunch. Since we were in Tommorrowland, we went to Cosmic Ray’s.

I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with French Fries:


Cosmic Ray’s has a ton of different options. There are three bays: chicken, burgers, and sandwiches. As you can probably tell, I went to the chicken section. This was good, but not the best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. It was a bit tough and kind of looked like it had been sitting around a while. The fries were okay; they were hot, but some were soggy. And nobody likes soggy fries! Maybe it was because we went at an awkward time?

My roommate had chicken nuggets, but they weren’t anything special. I would probably go to a different bay or try the rotisserie chicken next time. As of right now, however, Cosmic Ray’s gets a…



After our less than satisfactory lunch, my roommate had to leave for work. I wrapped up the day by purchasing a few things over at POTC, and then went to the Grand Floridian to catch a bus back home. Since I was in the neighborhood, I stopped by Gasparilla Grill and Games for a sweet treat.

German Chocolate Cupcake








Why hello there delicious cupcake! This was incredibly good – very moist, chocolaty, with just the right amount of frosting. I only ended up eating half and had the rest later once I came home from work. I decided that I should distribute the calories. This was by far MUCH better than my hamburger cupcake and one I would definitely have again…
