This article comes to us from Sarah Tully at the OC Register.
The Cupcake Store is back selling treats in Downtown Disney. But it has yet to settle into a permanent spot.
The Mission Viejo-based business opened in a white kiosk near ESPN Zone on Oct. 16. But the store plans to move later this year into custom-built kiosk near Kitson Kids, said Betsy Sanchez, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman.
The store temporarily sold cupcakes from the same location during the holiday season last year, but left when the short-term lease was up. See a previous story about the Cupcake Store during the holiday season.
Earlier this year, owners worked out a deal to return to Downtown Disney. See a story about the Cupcake Store’s new plans.
The Cupcake Store sells the sweets for $4.95 each, as well as some drinks.

Karamelle-Küche — German for “caramel kitchen,” the new shop in the Germany pavilion at Epcot is themed like an Old World German caramel shop. A show kitchen features cast members making fresh caramel popcorn, caramel apples, and chocolate-covered strawberries and marshmallows drizzled with caramel. Werther’s Original candy is on the shelves, and the shop also includes gourmet caramels, cookies, brownies, fudge and cupcakes. It’s the only free-standing retail location in the world for Storck, makers of Werther’s Original Caramels.

So your walking around Disney World enjoying the sights, the sounds, the Experience and it hits you. I am hungry! I’m not talking about the eat a snickers bar hungry. I am talking you want something with a little substance kinda hungry.
It is atleast 3-4 hours before your next meal and you have a laundry list of rides you want to get in before then.
So hot shot what do you do…what do you do?
1. Turkey Leg – This thing is huge and very filling. Nothing like chewing on some fresh, smokey, delicious turkey while walking around the park. No visit to the Magic Kingdom is complete without a turkey leg! There are several spots around Walt Disney World where you can get them. (please note that the Turkey Leg is now considered one Quick Service credit and no longer 1 single snack credit)
2. School Bread – This treat from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion. It is about the size of your fist, lightly sweetened yeast dough filled with custard and topped with vanilla glaze and coconut. So delicious!
3. Funnel Cake – You can get this treat from Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom. It is basically fried dough sprinkled with Sugar. Most people get these and share them. I personally like my own and from comments made on our Facebook Page I am one of the few people who like it with fruit.
4. Butterfinger Cupcake – Words can not do this justice. Located at Starring Rolls Cafe in Disney Hollywood Studios this little sweet shop has some of the best treats in all of Walt Disney World. Warning after trying one of these you will want to box up as many of these goodies as you can to bring home with you to savor later!
5. Dole Whip Float – So you are wondering why I picked the float over a regular Dole Whip its because the extra pineapple juice that is added takes us extra space in your belly helping you feel fuller longer. Not to mention the extra sugar it gives you for walking around the parks. Located at the Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom.

My boyfriend and I have a habit of getting a little bit of a sweet tooth when we visit Disneyland. We love perusing through the candy shop on Main Street, peering into the glass cases to gaze at the sugary confections.
Sometimes we decide that it’s time we cave in to the craving and purchase something for us to snack on. Our first choice is always the taffy.
With an assortment of flavors (banana is our favorite), the taffy is not only delicious, but affordable. A small single scoop bag will only set you back $2, plus tax. The bigger bags cost a little more, but when you think about it, the price is reasonable. The caramel apples, although VERY delicious and pleasant to the eye, are a little more expensive, so purchasing the taffy is a cheaper way to get that quick sweet fix.

Pretzels are one of those items that you can get at any park but the ones over at Germany’s Sommerfest and the carts are different. These pretzels aren’t the kind that you find in your freezer section of your local grocery store. These pretzels are really good. They are big, soft, fresh and have a nice butter coating with pretzel salt. It is one of my favorite snacks and I rarely ever miss grabbing one with a good German beer. This pretzel you can eat by itself or dip it in a nice spicy brown mustard. Either way, it’s good. So if you haven’t tried these make sure to pick one up on your next trip to Epcot.
Tip: If you are making these at home using the Disney recipe, melt a little bit of butter to brush on top before place in the oven. Also, it’s great dipped in Bavarian Beer Cheese Spread (which isn’t Disney but delicious).
Thanks to the wonderful Kristen for this yummy treat!
