Skipper canteen recently added two new Cocktails to their menu and you know we Had to try them out first up we tried The new golden Haze Margarita for 16.50 This is made with taramana Blanco Tequila the Rocks tequila brand Grand Marnier agave syrup lime juice and Smoked chili bitters we’ve seen a Similar drink at the petals pool bar at Pop Century in the past but now it’s Come to Magic Kingdom this was a really Good one it didn’t taste like anything Special to us just a really good Margarita we didn’t get any smokiness or Heat from the chili bitters but the Grand Marnier did add a hint of orange Flavor and that gave it a nice sweetness It helped to cut down on the tartness of The lime juice as well overall this was A refreshing one that we’d definitely Get again but if you’re looking for Something a little more fun or unique This is just a standard Margarita now do You hear that in the distance that’s the Sound of the new Jungle bird cocktail Calling your name Gosling’s black rum Campari cane syrup and pineapple and Lime juices come together in this take On the sweet and fruity Tiki drink That’ll transport you right to the Islands the jungle bird was much sweeter Than the margarita which makes sense Given the cane syrup and pineapple juice We didn’t taste too much of the

Bitterness of the Campari at first but As we sipped on the cocktail more it Became pronounced not in a bad way it Did help cut down some of that sweetness This was a well-balanced drink Eventually that would be perfect for Fans of tiki beverages or those just Looking for a fruity and sweet cocktail You can get it for 14.50 the territory Lounge at the Wilderness Lodge Completely revamped their menu we had to Try it out the new items on the menu Include bacon hanging from a wire a S’mores old-fashioned five different Kinds of popcorn and bone marrow in General we really enjoyed the new eats At territory Lounge but they’re not for Everybody some of the snacks were Amazing standouts like this salmon flat Bread and the bone and Brie others were Fun novelty options like the bacon on The Wire we were a little disappointed By some of the popcorn flavors but we Still think that sampler is a fun option Especially for kids or pickier eaters we Also think this is a good spot to try Some Unique Eats that aren’t your Standard theme park food although you Can get some pretty standard charcuterie And flatbreads here we thought the bone And Brie and bacon on a wire were Different and fun to try and by the way If you like meat hanging on a wire the Charcuterie has that too for our full

Review of the entire new menu head to Our website at over At landscape of flavors the cafeteria Style restaurant at the Art of Animation Resort you can now find the new Spellbound chicken adobo nachos which Are blue corn tortilla chips with Chicken adobo toasted pumpkin seeds Roasted corn black beans and a zesty Pumpkin cheese sauce finished with lime Crema and a ghost pepper salsa these Were incredible seriously her reporters Shared that these were easily one of the Best things they’d eaten in Disney World In a long time the dish had a great Blend of fall flavors that pumpkin Cheese sauce had just the right amount Of pumpkin to be enjoyable without being Overwhelming The Cranberries added a fun And unexpected sweetness when mixed in With the rest of the dish and sweet Potatoes were the perfect size for this Dish not too big and the pumpkin seeds Added a good crunch pair all of that With the savoriness of the lime Crema Which balanced out the sweetness of the Pumpkin and cranberries you got a total Win overall if you love fall flavors and Pumpkin and you’re a fan of nachos and You’re looking for a food Adventure that Combines The Best of Both Worlds give This one a try if you don’t like those Fall flavors though or you’d rather your Nachos only feature the classics beef

Lettuce and cheese we totally get it Then steer clear from this one these are Available through October 31st and They’re 12.49 over at connections Cafe In Epcot you can grab the new Caramelized appalache waffle for 3.99 It’s a great price it’s a liege waffle With caramel drizzle Apple chunks and a Crumb topping so how does this compare To the rest of the liege waffles well This one was great it wasn’t Overpoweringly sweet it had a natural Apple flavor we personally would have Enjoyed more caramel on the tree but That’s a personal preference as for the Inside it really does have chunks of Apple they’re really soft so you don’t Have to worry about biting hard to get Through them overall this is a good Affordable breakfast or snack if you’re Looking for something light we stopped By the boardwalk Deli to check out two New or newish Halloween treats that have Arrived the boo Brownie and the creepy Cupcake for those who may not be Familiar with it the boardwalk Deli has Replaced the old Boardwalk Bakery and is Now home to deli sandwiches baked breads Bakery items and more let’s start with a Boo brownie this is a Mickey shaped Brownie topped with ganache and whipped Cream ghosts for 5.79 while Disney has Identified this treat as new it is very Similar nearly identical to the ghostly

Brownie that was available at Boardwalk Bakery back in 2020. it’s not overly Sweet instead it hits the nail on the Head when it comes to the level of Sweetness especially for chocolate Lovers and again remember those ghosts Are whipped cream not frosting so you Don’t have that added sugar from the Topping to make it too sweet our Reporter shared they would happily eat The entire Brownie and even share that They feel that this is a top tier snack The only downside the fudge melts real Quickly and can become pretty messy so Just bring some extra napkins overall if You love brownies and chocolate or Fudge Don’t skip this one next up is the Creepy cupcake another one that Disney Has marked as new the treat is made of a Vanilla cupcake with blood orange curd Filling vanilla marscapone cream Chocolate cookie crumbs and sugar Pumpkins for 5.79 we’ve seen some of the Decorative elements included on past Treats but the combo of cupcake flavors Is new the cupcake itself was very moist We enjoyed the orange curd as well the Pumpkins on top were a fun addition when It comes to looks overall the flavors of The cake incurred balanced each other Well with that curd really cutting Through the sweet vanilla flavor in a Good way the downside to this treat we Didn’t really enjoy the vanilla

Mascarpone cream topping all that much Felt like it was just unnecessary and Mixed in too much with the vanilla cake And curd also the tombstone on top while Cute was just all right in terms of Flavor it was made with white chocolate And felt like an overload of sugar when Mixed with all the other ingredients Overall we’d say if you’re looking for a More unique type of fall cupcake this Could do the trick but you’ll really Need to love the taste of orange to Enjoy this and it’s really sweet with All those toppings so avoid it if you’re Not craving a super sweet cupcake both Treats are available through October 31st so don’t wait too long to stop by Boardwalk Deli if you want to give them A try and over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios a bunch of fall and Halloween Treats have been released first is the Pumpkin lunchbox tart for 429. it’s a Pumpkin pie filled pastry tart topped With marshmallow fondant candy corn and Halloween sprinkles next the pumpkin Patch cookie hit Catalina Eddie’s on Sunset Boulevard it’s a pumpkin spice Snickerdoodle cookie topped with pumpkin Spice buttercream and pumpkin candies For 4.29 and check out the Candy Corn Milkshake you can get at Hollywood Scoops for 9.49 it’s a candy corn ice Cream shake topped with a vanilla cake Donut whipped cream spooky sprinkles and
