Coming up on this weeks show, we decide to tempt your taste buds with some new delacies that are being offered in the parks and then we are joined by Kat and Lewis to discuss which is the best Big Thunder and along the way, share some little known facts.
First to food, in Walt Disney World we have ice-cream sundaes! A 12 ounce clear cup is filled with soft serve ice-cream with three choices of additions. The first is the berry blast sundae with: poundcake, blueberries, strawberries and blue cotton candy topped with a whole strawberry, strawberry candy bites and cream. But it is not just any cream - it is vanilla bean cream and it seems to be all the rage this year at WDW.
Secondly, is the churro chocolate sundae. Chocolate, ice-cream and two uber long pieces of churro with lashings of hot fudge sauce oh did I also say more of the aforementioned vanilla bean cream? Finished off with a flurry of chocolate.
The final one is the apple pie sundae - you can't get more American than that! This one has apple pie pockets - plural! That's right - three! Plus there is caramel sauce, caramel popcorn and caramel candy bites. The price? $6.50 and available from lunchtimes onwards from the kiosk by Test Track.
In addition, at WDW there is also the Do It Yourself desert party at the Grand Floridian. Arrive early; it starts at 7.00pm and runs til 9.30pm. Once there, you can buy alcoholic drinks and themed cupcakes in the setting themed around Alice in Wonderland.
In Disneyland the hot ticket is the I am Bread Jalepino cheese sourdough bread, currently selling in DCA for $8.50.
Moving on to drinks, Jayne managed to find some interesting drinks to talk about this week, as Dockside Margarita's - located at Disney Springs - will be selling some old and new favourites. A firm favourite has to be the return of the Kungaloosh plus other Pleasure Island club drinks such as Bell Bottom, Tech-no and Punchline. Prices are $9 upwards for the alcoholic versions starting 29th June through til 28th September 2017.
On to our second feature, we discuss each incarnation of Big Thunder Mountain (or as in some of the parks it also is known as - Railway). Having Kat and Lewis on board to discuss the far east parks is a massive bonus as we have yet to experience these. From tips such as the goat trick to the speeds, we share what we know and hope you will let us know which is your favourite.
