Though it may not initially seem like it, Walt Disney World has truly come into its own in recent years as a real food lover’s paradise. If you count yourself as one of the many who love eating their way around the Walt Disney World parks and resorts, there are some big changes taking effect right now you should know about.
For April's dining update, we take a look at the Millennial Pink craze, a Disney's Hollywood Studios eatery tests out new service, plus DVC members can now partake in a special, members-only tasting event!
1. Millennial Pink treats sweep Walt Disney World
Perhaps in an effort to find a sequel to the Rose Gold Mania that swept Walt Disney World earlier this year, the resort has begun offering a number of new food items themed to the bright Millennial Pink color around the resort, including cupcakes, milkshakes, champagne and more. Here's a rundown of where you can find Millennial Pink treats around the resort:
- Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies: This snack shop in Tomorrowland is now serving a Millennial Pink strawberry milkshake topped with cotton candy and a house-made Mickey-shaped marshmallow.
- Fountain View: This snack stop at Epcot's Future World offers a Millennial Pink Cupcake, which is a vanilla cupcake filled with strawberry pastry cream and topped with vanilla buttercream and fondant Minnie ears.
- Amorette’s Patisserie: Over at Disney Springs, adults can sip a specialty Millennial Pink Celebration Toast, which is a flute of Fairy Tale Celebration Cuvee topped with Millennial Pink chocolate ears.
- The Ganachery: Elsewhere at Disney Springs guests can enjoy a Millennial Pink Piñata, which is a dark chocolate dome with vanilla bean marshmallow filling and crispy strawberry pearls, topped with white chocolate ears. This location is also offering a special Millennial Pink-Berry Ganache Square, which is made of strawberry lemonade ganache covered in milk chocolate.
- Vivoli il Gelato: In a third option at Disney Springs guests visiting this frozen treat shop can now order a Millennial Pink Shake, which is made of strawberry sorbet and banana gelato spun with milk inside a white chocolate-dipped waffle cone, with a drizzle of strawberry sauce, and topped with whipped cream, strawberry crisp pearls, pink sprinkles and a fresh strawberry.
- Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club: At this resort guests can find a Millennial Pink Raspberry Cream Puff, which is filled with raspberry Bavarian cream and glazed with sugar icing.
- Disney's Polynesian Village Resort: At the Capt. Cook’s quick service eatery guests can enjoy a Millennial Pink cupcake, which is a vanilla cupcake filled with guava cream, topped with buttercream icing and fondant Minnie ears.
- The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge: The most decadent Millennial Pink cupcake option can be found here, as this location has a devil's food chocolate cupcake cake filled with a raspberry mousse, and topped with millennial pink buttercream icing, fondant Minnie ears, and pink sparkles.
- Value and Moderate resort quick service dining locations: Across the different value and moderate resorts, guests can find a chocolate Millennial Pink Cupcake with a raspberry marshmallow filling, and topped with raspberry buttercream.
- Disney’s BoardWalk Resort: Though not quite a cupcake, guests at this resort can have a Millennial Pink Cake Pop, dipped in white chocolate and topped with crispy pink pearls and millennial pink Minnie ears.
This trend is definitely in full swing around the resort and though we're sad to see the rose gold treats go (The Grand Floridian's take on the Rose Gold cupcake, which had a unicorn horn, was legendary!) it looks like Disney is all-in on food options for this new trend.
