Frozen Fever Continues with New Treats

If you’ve been in the Walt Disney World Parks this past weekend, then you’d have noticed the many spring sweet treats placed in multiple locations across the property. The Disney Parks Food and Beverage team has now created new treats inspired by the “Frozen Fever” short.

Treats such as, Anna’s Happy Birthday Cupcake, will be available at select quick-service locations at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. This vanilla cupcake has an icy blue butter-cream frosting, marshmallows and snowflake candies, topped with a white chocolate Olaf. The Frozen inspired goodies will be available April 8th.

How Did Walt Disney World Inside Out Become the Best? Find Out.

Did the ThemeParkHipster really go there?

Yes I did 🙂

Why?

Because the other day I was checking out YouTube to watch past Walt Disney World documentaries and low and behold I came across some old videos of Walt Disney World Inside Out. One of my absolute favorite shows ever produced on the Disney Channel!

So how did Walt Disney World Inside Out become the best?

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Disney Nostalgia

1997 Magic Kingdom Park Map

1997 Magic Kingdom Park Map

The other evening I was going through my past receipts and paperwork preparing to file my taxes. It’s something we 20 and 30-somethings like to refer to as adulting.

It’s a term first coined on twitter which means doing the monotonous things that a responsible adult is supposed to do such as, paying bills, filing taxes, showing up for work, and many of the ridiculousness that comes with being an adult.

Basically it’s the opposite of everything you truly want to do, such as geeking out with friends of the same fandom (for me it’s Harry Potter), playing video games, drinking around Epcot’s World Showcase, or anything you may feel takes you away from the mundane requirements of adulthood.

Back to the original story…

It was a day of many adulting activities when I ran across a box full of park maps I used to collect and the main one that stood out was a Magic Kingdom guidemap from November 24th to 30th, 1997. It stopped me because it was my 14th birthday weekend during that year and going to Walt Disney World during any of my childhood was always like an early Christmas gift.
