Sprinkles is proud to announce it will open its newest location on May 15th in Disney Springs, an exciting new waterfront district for world-class shopping, unique dining, and high-quality entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

As the 20th location for the brand nationwide, Sprinkles at Disney Springs will feature both the traditional bakery offering freshly baked cupcakes and an assortment of ice creams and cookies, as well as the brand’s unique Cupcake ATM that dispenses freshly baked cupcakes and cookies for customers who want a sugar rush on the go! Following closely on the recent opening of its first Florida location in Tampa, Sprinkles at Disney Springs signifies the company’s continued mission to bring the popular dessert experience to Central Florida and beyond.

“Disney Springs was a natural fit for us when deciding where in Orlando to open our doors,” said Candace Nelson, founder of Sprinkles and judge on Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars.”  “With its widespread appeal to vacationers and locals, Disney Springs is an ideal spot for everyone with a sweet tooth to converge. We’re excited that guests will soon be able to experience our cupcakes, ice cream and cookies, and of course our Cupcake ATM.”

Sprinkles Cupcakes are handcrafted from the finest ingredients and are available in a variety of flavors including Banana, Carrot, Salty Caramel, Strawberry and Sprinkles’ bestseller, Red Velvet.  The Orlando menu will also feature Sprinkles signature cookies and ice cream, both of which come in a range of flavors such as Butter Pecan, Rocky Road and Cap’n Crunch; and Snickerdoodle, Salted Oatmeal Cornflake and Peanut Butter Pretzel Chip. Sprinkles also keeps an eye towards customers with specific dietary needs, offering vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free cupcake, cookie and sorbet options.

cupcake atm

A highly unique aspect to Sprinkles is its exclusive Cupcake ATM, which offers guests tasty treats even when the bakery is closed. The Cupcake ATM is one of the bakery’s most popular offerings, with Sprinkles at Disney Springs becoming the 12th ATM location. The Cupcake ATM can hold up to 400 cupcakes at a time and is constantly restocked throughout the day to ensure freshness. The Cupcake ATM will also carry dog-friendly cupcakes.

Sprinkles will be open daily from 10 a.m. to midnight. The Cupcake ATM will operate daily from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Delivery will also be available within a 100 mile radius via online and phone ordering.

Pandora

There’s an incredible lineup of new attractions and experiences coming to all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks this summer. Here are some new details on how Pandora – The World of AVATAR will come to life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in 2017.

Imagineer Joe Rohde and Lightstorm Entertainment film producer Jon Landau shared a quick hint at what to expect in the new 12-acre land inspired by James Cameron’s film “AVATAR” during a special presentation at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Pandora

They showed how the land will take on new life at night with bioluminescent flora and special nighttime immersive programming that’ll add a magical touch.

You’ll also notice realistic details during your adventures, including special Na’vi artifacts seen throughout the land.

“We want the world of Pandora to be believable,” Jon said. “When visitors come to Pandora they’ll experience and they’ll believe — and they’ll look at the world a little bit differently.”

Keep an eye on the Chip and Co for more details on Pandora – The World of AVATAR, including the spectacular “floating mountains” and thrilling attractions coming to the land: AVATAR Flight of Passage and the Na’vi River Journey.

Nightfall at Walt Disney World brings more mystery and majesty to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park as guests discover rich new experiences under the stars. Whether riding Kilimanjaro Safaris at sunset, rollicking aboard rafts on Kali River Rapids at twilight or dancing alongside African performers in Harambe, guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom can enjoy the park’s captivating new vibe and tone when it expands its offerings with extended hours and enhanced entertainment.

Highlights of new experiences:

  • The Tree of Life Awakens – The theme park’s iconic Tree of Life will undergo extraordinary “awakenings” throughout the evening as the animal spirits are brought to life by magical fireflies that reveal colorful stories of wonder and enchantment. High-tech projections of nature scenes take on a magical quality as they appear to dramatically emanate from within the Tree of Life.
  • Kilimanjaro Safaris after Dark – Each evening, the popular Kilimanjaro Safaris daytime experience is artfully bathed in the glow of sunset with special lighting allowing guests to explore this attraction well into the night. During the expedition, guests can now encounter the nighttime behavior of the wildlife and better tune in to the unique vocalization of the animals. Plus, there are two new species to discover: African wild dogs and hyenas.
  • Harambe Wildlife Parti – When the sun sets, the popular Village of Harambe will become a hot spot with the new Harambe Wildlife Parti. Here, “party animals” can dance alongside a variety of entertainers and local street musicians, and enjoy the lively rhythms of African music. Guests can also partake in exotic foods and libations, and explore the diverse wares of village artisans and merchants in the vibrant marketplace.
  • Discovery Island Carnivale -The spirited community of Discovery Island has come together to celebrate their love of the natural world with the Discovery Island Carnivale. This nightly experience will captivate guests with lively music, jubilant dance, vibrant costumes, stilt walkers and tasty culinary creations — winding from one end of the island to the other.
  • Tiffins Signature Restaurant – In addition to the diverse new entertainment offerings, guests will enjoy Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s new signature eatery, Tiffins. Open for both lunch and dinner, this new signature dining experience will celebrate the art of traveling and include waterfront views from both indoor and outdoor seating areas.
  • New Adventures with Favorite Attractions – Most attractions remain open at nightfall, and will shine like never before. At sundown, Kali River Rapids will reveal more mysterious twists and turns throughout the rainforest with dramatic and drenching fun. Expedition Everest thrills adventurers as it lurches forward and backward through the icy peaks of the Himalayas. But at night, the majestic mountain challenges trekkers to an evening ride revealing breathtaking views of the Animal Kingdom canopied by starlight. Amidst the colorful midway games at Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama in DinoLand U.S.A., the thrills turn up aboard the zany Triceratop Spin or Primeval Whirl under the lights.
  • More Magic to Come with “Rivers of Light”– The nighttime will grow even more magical with the premiere of the majestic nighttime jewel, “Rivers of Light.” This illuminating musical experience – currently in development with a premiere date to be announced soon – will celebrate the magic of animals, humans and the natural world with a blend of performers, floating lanterns and theatrical animal imagery.

Stay Tuned for more information.

It is being reported that Disney has recently changed the bread in the Tonga Toast and Disney Addicts are not happy!

If you have never had the chance to try the Tonga Toast from the Kona Cafe or Captain Cooks in the Polynesian Resort you don’t know what you are missing! Tonga Toast is thick-cut Sourdough Bread stuffed with bananas before being deep fried and rolled in Cinnamon Sugar. I highlighted Sourdough Bread as that is the main ingredient of the dish…

TT

Recently Disney has opted out of using the Sourdough bread in a cost cutting measure and is now using a French Bread from a new bread supplier. Many fans online do not like the change and say it changes the overall texture, taste, and consistency of the dish.

No word on if Disney plans on going back to Sourdough bread but like when Disney made a change years ago with the bread pudding at ‘Ohana fan outcry forced Disney to change it back.

If you want to attempt to make your own Tonga Toast at home check out our recipe here, just make sure to use Sourdough Bread 😉

Summer is the perfect time to experience an epic family vacation—one that is great for family bonding, but also where kids can be kids and adults can enjoy some precious alone time.  The lakeside 26-acre Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, heralded as a “kids’ paradise,” offers amenities and activities for all ages to enjoy. From S’mores making by the fire pit, to scavenger hunts, timed water slide races and Lazy River relays and more, nothing says “summer fun” more than a vacation at the only AAA Five Diamond award rated property at Walt Disney World Resort. The newly introduced Stay Longer- Fourth Night Free package provides added value and gives an extra reason to do just that—stay longer and experience all the award-winning resort has to offer.

The Stay Longer- Fourth Night Free package offers a complimentary fourth night with every three paid nights, May 1 through Sept, 30, 2016. Rates start at USD 434.00 per night after the fourth night free is applied. Numerous added values are included within the rate, such as the complimentary kids camp daily; kids five and younger dine free at resort restaurants; complimentary transportation to the Walt Disney World Resort parks; and complimentary access to the on-site 5-acre waterpark, 24-hour fitness center, and Spa relaxation areas. With all of the added values, plus the fourth night free and no resort fee, there’s never been a better time to celebrate summer and enjoy Four Seasons Resort Orlando’s unparalleled amenities.

For a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort in perfect balance, guests can enjoy the Disney parks along with Four Seasons’ many on-site recreational activities. Parents can enjoy a break while children ages 4-12 opt to spend just a few hours, or the whole day, at Kids For All Seasons, a complimentary kids camp open daily from 10 am to 6 pm.

“With the dynamic diversions offered right here on property, and easy access to Walt Disney World Resort, the guests will be assured the perfect summer vacation,” says Thomas Steinhauer, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort.

On Property Recreational Pursuits
A highlight of Four Seasons Resort Orlando is the five-acre (two hectare) “Explorer Island” water park, including a winding lazy river complete with a rapids section, two water slides, an interactive splash zone with water cannons, and much more.

While children are having a blast at Kids For All Seasons, moms and dads can enjoy relaxation at the 18-treatment room Spa, or unwind in the paradise of The Oasis adult pool, for ages 21 and up, featuring cabanas and poolside cocktail service. Tennis aficionados will enjoy the three Har-Tru tennis courts and a variety of clinics, matches and more offered in partnership with Peter Burwash International. A spacious lakeside fitness center is available 24-hours a day, with fitness classes ranging from yoga to cardio offered on a weekly basis.

In addition, golfers will love the 18-hole Tranquilo Golf Club— an incredible Tom Fazio designed course with personalized Four Seasons service, perfect for mom and dad to enjoy a tee time for two while kids are enjoying Kids For All Seasons. Or, for added family time, aspiring little golfers age 12 and under golf for free with a paid adult greens fee. Tranquilo also offers special family golf carts that seat four.

Viva la Música is sizzling back into action at SeaWorld Orlando with new flavors and some of the hottest Hispanic artists in the industry. This fiery, festive celebration runs Saturdays April 16 and 23, and May 7 and 14 and is included with park admission.

On Saturday, April 16, salsa and Latin music sensation, Jerry Rivera will take the stage.  Rivera has sold more than 11 million records and has topped the Billboard chart with gold and platinum songs.

Then on Saturday, April 23, Latin Grammy winner, Víctor Manuelle will dazzle guests as he performs hit songs like “No Quería Engañarte” from his multiplatinum albums.

Viva la Música activities begin at 12 p.m. each Saturday at the Bayside pathway, with concerts starting at 3 p.m. at Bayside Stadium.

Foodies and music lovers can enjoy this family-friendly annual festival with new authentic cuisine prepared by SeaWorld’s Executive Chef Hector Colon; live concerts by these internationally acclaimed Hispanic artists and bands; and unique merchandise from local artisans that reflect the true spirit of Latin culture.

 

FLAVORS TO TASTE

  • Chef’s signature creations – New this year at Mango Joe’s is the Hamburguesa Cubana, a hamburger made with a chorizo, ground beef and pork patty. Plus, guests who visit Seafire Grill, Cypress Bakery and Mango Joe’s will find an array of Latin infused limited-time dishes.

  • Food Sampler Package – For $25, guests looking to try an assortment of new flavors can choose from five samples of select dishes and also receive 15 percent off all food and drink purchases on the event pathway.

Pastries, desserts, beers, margaritas, mojitos, cuba libres, wine and a special house-made sparkling red sangria are also available throughout the event pathway.

 

SOUNDS TO HEAR

Every Saturday during Viva la Música, upbeat concerts from internationally renowned stars of reggaeton, salsa, merengue and more will take the stage at SeaWorld Orlando’s Bayside Stadium for exciting live concerts.

Scheduled performances include:

  • Saturday, April 16:  Jerry Rivera

SIGHTS TO SEE

  • Jardín – Returning this year is the Viva la Música garden, providing a more relaxing environment for the entire family, but still just steps away from the main fiesta. Seating and Domino tables are available for guests to relax and enjoy in this area as well.
  • Mercados – Sprinkled across the event pathway will be small shops stationed with original merchandise inspired by the Latin culture and created by local artisans and artists including handmade oil paintings, organic jewelry and much more.
  • Festive Latin Atmosphere – The Bayside pathway will come alive with bright colors, Caribbean décor, dance floors and DJs spinning live music hits.

The best way to experience Viva la Música and all of SeaWorld’s special events throughout the year is with a SeaWorld Orlando Annual Pass. From now until April 24, guests who purchase a SeaWorld annual pass will also receive access to Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark for free. With an annual pass, guests will also be able to return this summer for the opening of MAKO – Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest rollercoaster.

Celebrating Dory’s return to the silver screen this June in Disney∙Pixar’s Finding Dory, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media has collaborated for the first time with Golden State designer Trina Turk to bring fans the Finding DoryCollection Trina Turk that will launch later this month. Featuring ready-to-wear beach apparel for women and girls, swimwear for the whole family, handbags and accessories, the collection is done in the classic beach style Trina Turk is known for, but with inspiration from Dory and her friends hidden amongst the custom oceanic print.

“Our brand’s Southern California vibe was a perfect fit with Disney∙Pixar’s Finding Dory,” said Trina Turk. “The inspiration for the print came from the film’s background art, with Dory and Nemo swimming through bright multicolored seaweed, coral and anemones against an aqua background. These cheerful surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for Dory and her friends in this exclusive print.”

 

Influenced by the California beach lifestyle and vintage looks of the ‘60s and ‘70s, designer Trina Turk’s collections are both casual and sophisticated. Trina’s designs reflect confidence and creativity, making Disney∙Pixar’sFinding Dory film the perfect muse for her bold colors and cheerful prints. Finding Dory and Trina Turk fans alike will look stylish with exclusive pieces from the twist bandeau bikini to the Mr. Turk swim shorts to the tote bag. The collection will be available in Trina Turk boutiques and on TrinaTurk.com and DisneyStore.com, as well as at Dillard’s, Macy’s, Lord & Taylor and a wide range of specialty boutiques. Prices range from $48 – $228.

 

“Our first designer beachwear collaboration inspired by the world of Disney∙Pixar delivers a colorful and stylish range just in time for summer,” said Josh Silverman, executive vice president, global licensing, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Finding Dory collection from Trina Turk celebrates the much-loved characters from the movie through unique designs offering the perfect blend of fun and fashion.”

We have some great news to share with you today! Over the past few months Walt Disney World and Disneyland has been closing many Rides and Attractions to make way for Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land. Here are some of the closures that are already gone or are on their way out:

While nobody likes to see things change at the parks it does remain necessary if we want to see the new and exciting things Disney has in store for us with the new expansions.

Just a few months ago Disney raised ticket prices as they typically do each year. This year they went with a tiered ticketing increase so that when the parks got busier the price of the ticket went up. This has not been popular with guests which has caused them to restructure how they do park tickets yet again.

Starting today Disney is going to lower ticket prices back down to a flat $99 for all theme parks and offer Magic Extras that you can add to your ticket depending on what you and your family would like to do at the Disney World and Disneyland theme parks.

The new Magic Extras will be broke down into 3 tiers, families can select any or all of the tiers and pay the additional up charge that goes with the specific Magic Extras they would like. Here is a break down of the new tiered Magical Extras:

Tier 1 – Rides, Attractions, Character Meet & Greets

  • This $99 Magic Extra will allow you to ride all of the rides at the theme park you are visiting that day. You will still have to wait in the standby line as Fastpasses are only available in the Premium add-on (see below). This is a great option for people who love to ride rides and would like to meet their favorite Disney Characters (when available).

Tier 2 – Restaurants, Parade Viewing, Play Areas

  • This $59 Magic Extra will allow you and your family the opportunity to dine at some of Disney’s World Class fine dining Quick Service and Table Service Restaurants. You will still have to pay for your meal as the Disney Dining Plan is only available in the Premium add-on. With this Magic Extra you also have access to the Disney Parades, scaled back nighttime shows, and fun play areas like the closing Honey I Shrunk the Kids movie set!

Tier 3 – Restrooms, Shopping, Park Seating

  • This $39 Magic Extra is a much-needed add-on for you and your family if you intend on using the restroom while you are at the Disney Theme parks! Which we highly recommend! With this Tier 3 add-on you can also enjoy many of the different theme park shops where Disney will gladly take your money. Also not to be missed with this Tier 3 Magic Extra is the Park Seating! Give you legs a rest after walking all day and enjoy some of the many benches and ground seating locations where people can stand directly in front of you spoiling your view. So magical!

If you are having a hard time choosing which new Magical Extra you would like to add to your discounted base ticket you can purchase the Premium Super Deluxe Magical Pixie Dust Add on! For a mere $299 you can have all 3 Magic Extras added to your park ticket along with 3 Fastpasses (per family per day), option to buy the Disney Dining Plan, and this special Disney balloon that you get to inflate yourself!

disney balloon

You will start seeing the new ticket prices show up today in all theme parks. There will be Cast Members available to help you starting at the Premium Parking Lots all the way to the ticket booths. Over the next few months the old tickets will be phased out in favor of the new cheaper pricing structure.

We want to hear what you think of the new discounted Disney Park tickets. Is this a great value for you and your family? Let us know in the comment box below.

D23 event

D23 has announced that the D23 Expo 2017 will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California the weekend of July 14-16, 2017.  This event is held every two years and celebrates the magical world of Disney. Recent developments along with the future of the Disney theme parks, television, gaming, music and films, including Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar will all be discussed at the Expo. Advanced tickets for this ultimate Disney fan event will be available through the D23 Expo website beginning July 14, 2016. Ticket prices have not been released yet.

Below are some details about the 2017 event from the D23 website:

Highlights planned for the fifth D23 Expo include the Disney Legends Ceremony, which honors the talented men and women who have made significant contributions to the Disney legacy; an all-new exhibit curated by the Walt Disney Archives; D23 Expo’s costume contest, Mousequerade, showcasing the most creative designs by fans; the D23 Expo Emporium, where Disney fans can buy, sell, and trade Disney collectibles, memorabilia, merchandise, and more; and the D23 Expo Design Challenge. (Details on the Design Challenge and Mousequerade are coming soon.)

The 2017 Expo will feature a massive show floor full of immersive experiences and special opportunities to see what’s next for Disney around the world—and guests may run into their favorite Disney stars, characters, Imagineers, animators, and filmmakers. StagePass, the popular ticket distribution system that allows attendees to obtain guaranteed seats for some of Expo’s most popular presentations, and StorePass, which allows priority entry to select shopping venues at the event, will once again enhance the guest experience. Hall D23, the popular presentation and performance venue featuring more than 7,000 seats, will return, as will Stage 23, Stage 28, and Center Stage.

The fifth event follows the success of D23 Expo 2015, where guests were treated to appearances by such celebrities as Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Evans, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Dwayne Johnson and watched performances by Ne-Yo, Sabrina Carpenter, the cast of Teen Beach 2, and stars of Disney’s shows on Broadway. Fans previewed costumes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and were the first to hear about the new Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. They also enjoyed a look back at Disney’s rich history through extraordinary panels, presentations, and exhibits and discovered the newest entertainment, technology, and products coming from Disney.

D23 Members will receive special pricing on both one- and three-day tickets to the event, which is open to the general public. D23 Gold and Charter Members will also be entitled to special benefits at the 2017 Expo. Gold Members will also have an opportunity to purchase the Sorcerer Package, which provides a host of special benefits and amenities. Ticket prices will be announced this summer.

Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media today announced a Marvel Super Hero makeover for women’s activewear via a new collaboration with fangirl fashion company, Her Universe. The stylish line for teens and millennial women is inspired by the forthcoming movie Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and will launch this month at Kohl’s stores and Kohls.com.

The capsule collection featuring looks based on Black Widow, Iron Man and Captain America will be tagged “Be A Hero” and offer more than 30 pieces, including tanks, sports bras and leggings, available in sizes XS – XL and 1X – 3X.

“Collaborating with Marvel on activewear is a dream come true,” said Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein. “These Marvel characters inspire me to try and ‘Be A Hero’ in my everyday life, and being active is an important part! We’re incredibly proud of this collection and hope that girls will be inspired to wear these designs from the gym to the street.”

The line is part of a major expansion into women’s fashion from Marvel, including launching @StyledByMarvel on Instagram, where female fans have flocked to keep up with Marvel style, attracting 275,000 followers in just 18 months.
