It’s time for Halfway to the Holidays! If you love the holidays and can’t wait for the winter months to come, then you’ll be thrilled to hear what Disney has to offer!
You can get in the spirit early with festive happenings going on at Disney Parks. One of the best ways to celebrate is the tasty way, and Disney has a few eats, sips, and novelties for you to get your fix until the winter comes around.
Disneyland Resort — June 23rd to 30th
For a limited time at Downtown Disney District, you’ll find two delicious eats to enjoy for this exciting occasion. California Churro has the Peppermint Churro, a churro rolled in crushed peppermint and drizzled with a mint frosting topped with peppermint candy pieces. Few things give you the feeling of the season more than peppermint, and this churro sure does the trick.
Then there’s the Christmas Dinner Corn Dog from Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs. It’s a twist on a classic features a corn dog made with a turkey hot dog, hand-dipped in batter, rolled in panko crumbs, and served with a side of cranberry sauce for dipping. It’s like a holiday feast on the go!
Walt Disney World Resort — June 23rd to 26th
Meanwhile, Walt Disney World also has delightful options to choose from. At Gasparilla’s Island Grill, found at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, the pastry team has brought back one of their sweet treats. From June 23 through 26, you can get a festive favorite, the Very Merry Minnie Mouse Cupcake. It’s a chocolate cupcake filled with cookies and cream mousse and topped with ganache-dipped buttercream, cookie ears, and a chocolate holiday bow.
If peppermint is one of your favorite flavors, then you need to take a trip over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge where The Mara is also joining in on the fun. This team has whipped up the brand-new Peppermint Bark Cheesecake, a peppermint cheesecake with a chocolate cookie and peppermint crust and whipped vanilla panna cotta. This delicious treat is also available June 23 through 26.
Are you wanting to bring the holidays home with you? If so, there’s a novelty that’s coming to Disney Springs! The Gold Christmas Tree Popcorn Buckets are back for the festivities. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them during the holidays previously, no need to fret because all across Disney Springs at outdoor vending carts, you’ll be able to find these buckets. Not to mention, popcorn is included with the purchase – what a treat! But don’t wait too long because these are only available while supplies last.
Also at Disney Springs, Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea will be serving up not one, but two special items. From June 23 through 26, you can get the Peppermint Mocha with dark chocolate sauce, peppermint syrup, and whipped cream or the White Chocolate Gingerbread Latte, a delicious combination of white chocolate sauce and gingerbread syrup topped with whipped cream. What could be better than a little touch of the season in your coffee? These delights are also available hot or iced and can have some spirits added for those over 21.
More Disney holiday announcements are coming later this week, but until then, enjoy all the tasty happenings going on at Disney to celebrate!
