Create Your Own Treats At Goofy’s Candy Company!

16 Sep

I am always on the lookout for something different and fun to try as I am traveling around the parks, and one of our favorite places to explore is the Downtown Disney Marketplace.

On a previous trip with a friend I found the Create Your Own Treats at Goofy’s Candy Company, and I thought that it would be a perfect end to a girl’s evening!

After a super yummy dinner at Earl of Sandwich with Shalon Given, we headed over to Goofy’s to make our own delicious dessert!!!

Walking up we were overwhelmed by the choices, but after some careful consideration Shalon chose a Mickey Krispy Rice Treat and I chose the topped marshmallows!

Watching the cast members make our treats was a lot of fun, but definitely not as much fun as eating them!

I can’t wait to try this with Zoe…okay maybe I can’t wait to try the pretzel rods…either way this is a great way to have a little fun and eat it, too!

Little MissMatched adds new Disney socks, clothes, and accessories!

5 Sep

Little MissMatched is easily one of our favorite stores (Please, no one tell TrenD) in the Downtown Disney Marketplace.

While we, Zoe and I, love their fun socks I always wished that they had some Disney options…and finally they have added them!

Currently they only have the anklet socks, $11 for 3 coordinating NOT matching socks, and they are available in 15 different styles.

In addition to the socks, they have added Disney clothing and accessories.

As with most things in Little MissMatched, the prices are comparable to those around the parks.

The small sling bag and the drawstring backpacks are $17, the t-shirts are $19, and the knit sweaters are $49.

While I am not a huge Pook-a-Looz fan, I don’t mind them so much on the Little MissMatched items. I think my favorite ones are the Alice and Wonderland Socks!!!

I am really excited about taking Zoe back and picking out a few goodies!!!

A Look Around the Newly Refurbished Lego Store at Downtown Disney

29 Apr

The last stop on our week of firsts, is a look at the newly refurbished Lego Store that Opened earlier this week at the Downtown Disney Marketplace.

The store looks amazing!!! They have added several new sculptures around the outside of the building and spruced up the activity tables outside. Also, you’ll notice that they removed the playground area…

I loved this dragon and knight sculpture!!!

A closer look at the bottom of the dragon and knight sculpture...

A look at the dwarf sculpture...

More dwarfs....

And finally Snow White kissing Dopey, which was my favorite of them all!

One of the spruced up tables outside where you could race your Lego cars!!!

The inside of the store also received a MAJOR overhaul!!! There are new cute Lego dioramas, activity areas, and an innovate way to look at what your Lego creation will look like once it’s assembled.

A look at the new check out areas and Lego showroom

Another view of the inside of the store.

In the gaming area you could build and play with you creations on several computer stations.

The second activity area was a large table chocked full of various Lego bricks that could be closed off from the rest of the store.

This is an example of one of the SEVERAL Lego dioramas that are scattered throughout the shelves.

Now this was the absolute coolest addition to the refurbishment…The Digital Box!

After all, You’ve got a friend in me…at the Lego Store in the Downtown Disney Marketplace.

Woody & Buzz!!!!

Who you callin’ Babycakes???

9 Dec

The landscape of the Downtown Disney Marketplace just got a whole lot sweeter with the addition of Babycakes NYC!

Refined sugar-free? Gluten free? Wheat-free? Soy-free? Casein-free? Egg-free? Vegan? And it’s good?

No.

It is absolutely amazing!!!

I have to admit that I was more than worried as I stared at my red velvet cupcake, but I have to tell you as a girl who has never lived above the Mason-Dixon line that this cupcake would give any other red velvet cake a run for its money!!! It was super moist, and the frosting was so sweet, creamy and wonderful!!!

Worried about food colorings? Don’t be! They use natural food dyes in their frostings and cakes.

Babycakes NYC, which is located in the same building as Fresh A-Peel and Pollo Campero, offers a wide variety of cupcakes, doughnuts, cookies, cookie sandwiches (which look absolutely amazing), and other seasonal sweets. Although, my favorite is the frosting shot!!! 🙂

Also, this Friday, December 10th, from 1 to 2 pm there will be a cookbook signing and little sweet pack giveaway for people who stop by!

This has really started a conversation in our family about finding other healthy food alternatives. Seriously, if they can make a cupcake taste this good, then what do we have to fear?

Here are a few pictures I took during my outing…
