How To Have A Custom Cake Made At Disney World

A few years ago it worked out that we would be at Disney during my daughter’s birthday. I had heard about having a custom cake made but had no idea where to start. After hours online, I finally found the The Cake Thread on DisBoards, which turned out to be a wealth of information! I could spend hours looking at all the pictures of cakes and reading everyone’s tips. In the end, I decided to go through the Grand Floridian’s bakery and dealt directly with the pastry chef Pat, who was amazing! She actually called me at home to go over all the details…sooo nice!!

DisBoard’s Official Cake Chatter Thread – All you’ll need to know!

I wanted an Alice In Wonderland cake for her (of course), and Pat went out of her way to create a cake that was PERFECT. To have the cake delivered to your table, you do have to dine at Grand Floridian Cafe, which can be as simple as ordering an appetizer and coffee. As far as I know, you can also pick it up from the bakery. That may have changed, so be sure to check the DisBoards forum. It’s the most up-to-date- resource I know of.

Our cake ending up costing just $78…shockingly affordable for what she created and the beautiful way they set it up at our table! My daughter is like me and very hard to surprise, so I had to enlist the help of my sister to pull it off. We told her that “Aunt Lisa” wanted to have tea at Grand Floridian, and we were going to meet her before having dinner. The bakery team went overboard and had set the table up with balloons, flowers, and the cake – it was beautiful! She actually loved the cake so much she didn’t want to eat it haha!

Disney loves to help you celebrate special occasions, so be sure to get a birthday or celebration pin from the front desk of your resort or the main gate of the park. And don’t be shy about reminding them either. I think everyone in the park knew it was my daughter’s “birthday WEEK” :-) We’ve received free desserts, cards, buttons and more.

New Food Trucks At Downtown Disney

  

Food Trucks at Downtown DisneyPin To Pinterest Pin This To Pinterest

In case you haven’t heard, the food truck craze has made it way all the down to Walt Disney World, specifically Downtown Disney! There, you can find four trucks, each sporting its own style and cuisine. Time and location changes by the day, but just ask a cast member for the most current information.

“World Showcase of Flavors” represents the eats you can find during Epcot’s Food and Wine festival, with pierogies, beef sliders, and lobster rolls. Although they are quite pricey, I really want to try the lobster roll. Maybe I can take a friend and share them for a light (and cheap!) snack! =)

“Superstar Catering” has a Hollywood Studios feel to it. This food truck offers Greek/Mediterranean fare. Think lamb, feta, tzatziki, spinach…those kinds of flavors. I am interested in the turkey and raisin meatballs, yum!

To represent Animal Kingdom, the “Namaste Café” supplies African and Asian meal options. The menu includes butter chicken, tandoori shrimp, and slow-cooked short ribs. I just tried (and LOVED) Sanaa’s butter chicken, so now I want to compare the two. Fingers crossed they are just as good so I can have TWO places to grab this delicious meal. =)

Last, but not least, is the “Fantasy Fare.” Here, you can get Magic Kingdom AND Disneyland inspired food! I was most excited about this truck because I saw it featured the Croque Monsieur, just like at Be Our Guest! I am not typically wowed by sandwiches, but I definitely was by this one. The Fantasy Fare also serves hand-dipped corndogs, which apparently are the thing to get over in Disneyland. (Think of it like the iconic status of MK’s Dole Whip.) Since I have never been there, now I can finally try them!

Although I have yet to try out any of these food trucks, they are most certainly on my “to-do” list. And don’t worry – as soon as I do, I will be sure to report back with my review! =)
