The Secret Menu at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort Food Court

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Every time our family travels to Walt Disney World Resort, I’m always excited for our new adventures. There is so much to see and do and Disney Magic seems to be a part of each Disney vacation we go on.On a recent visit to Walt Disney World, we stayed at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort. It was our first time staying there so I had no idea they had a SECRET MENU and I was SO excited to learn about it! The All-Star Movies is one of the 5 “Value” Resorts at Walt Disney World so the food options are set up “quick service” style in their “World Premiere Food Court“. Guests can choose from 5 different food stations, each named after a famous theater: The Lyric, Majestic and Roxy all serve full meals, The Grand serves snacks and Rialto serves fabulous desserts!We arrived late on the night we traveled to Florida and were famished when we stepped into the World Premiere Food Court. One of the Cast Members working that night, Josh,  mentioned a “Secret Menu” and asked if we’d be interested in learning more about it? Um, YES! I felt so special as he brought out a metal briefcase, opened it and handed each of us a View-Master®. Not everyone will know what these retro toys are, including my own daughter, but we, adults, instantly knew what one was and became instantly giddy at this nod to my childhood!The Secret Menu is actually listed inside of the View-Master, so you can’t see it until you peek into it! So cool, right? Since it was so late at night when we learned about this, we didn’t actually get a chance to try any of these items, but you can be sure we will on our next visit! I just love learning about things like this! Don’t you?
Normally, I don’t like to post spoilers but if you must know about the 3 items on the secret menu at All-Star Movies, they are:

  • Poutine with Gravy and Cheese Curds – This generous serving of french fries is topped with gravy and
  • Cinnamon Roll Bacon Cheeseburger – This one is literally a cheeseburger, topped with white cheddar cheese and candied bacon, and served sandwiched between 2 gooey cinnamon rolls. THIS is the one I’m going back for!
  • Bacon Mac n Cheese Hot Dog – This delicious hot dog is topped with Mac n Cheese AND bacon! Mmm!

If you’re interested in checking out the Secret Menu at the World Premiere Food Court inside Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, just cruise up to a Cast Member and ask for it. I’m sure they’ll guide you from there! If you’ve already experienced this Secret Menu, share about it with me in the comments. I’d love to hear about your experience.

Spooky New Experiences Added to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. 

Every summer, I get excited at the first signs of Halloween! Some people totally disagree with that. I just love to plan ahead. When the Disney Parks Blog announced the dates for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park, I began planning our next trip to Walt Disney World. (because that’s how a Disney Mom’s mind works.) Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place on select nights August 17 – October 31, 2018 and is a separate ticketed event. Last year we had the chance to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for the very first time and it was SO much fun.
We loved dressing up in costumes, experiencing the park decorated so beautifully after dark, trick-or-treating together, character & other photo opportunities, exclusive-for-the-party entertainment, spooky treats, and more. After attending though, I realized that there is so much to do that you should almost consider attending two different nights, just so you don’t miss anything!This year when we go, we’re going to hit the ground running, and be way more prepared to maximize our experience during the party. Even more excited was reading about the new additions to this year’s party! More Halloween fun? Yes, please!Here’s what’s been added to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2018:

  • The Mad Tea Party will take you for a colorful ride as new lighting and effects give a new spin on the night. Depending on the color of your costume, you too could transform under the new dancing lights.
  • New pirates will invade Pirates of the Caribbean, interacting with sailing guests who will join the search for “Gunpowder Pete.” Arrrgh!
  • Space Mountain will be transformed into a new adventure for its explorers with a new soundtrack and special effects.
  • Storybook Circus will be transformed for the party into Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam! This dance party will feature some of everyone’s favorite Disney Junior Characters! Even Doc McStuffins!

If you’re a Disney lover (and who isn’t?), you are most likely familiar with the sea of emotions that come over you anytime you do something Disney related. Whether you’re watching a Disney film, reading a classic Disney book with a child, or even walking into one of the Disney theme parks, the emotions that come with the territory can sometimes overwhelm you.
