Walt Disney World, as usual, have introduced a range of tantalising treats but which ones tickled our fancy? 

Magic Kingdom

For Michelle, they all look so stunning but none of the flavours enticed Michelle. 

For Jayne, she agreed that they all looked very impressive but was struggling to choose which one to go for. She was definitely not tempted though by the Pistachio Thai Tea Float.

Disney Hollywood Studios

Michelle, with her super sweet tooth plumped for the hot chocolate and of course - the cookie! 

Jayne plumped for  the Holiday Whoopie Pie. a red velevet whoopie pie with a classic cream cheese filling.

Disney Animal Kingdom

Michelle already loves the desserts over at Satuli Canteen so when she saw there was a special white chocolate peppermint cream mouse; she was sold! 

Jayne chose the Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwich, yummy pumpkin cookies sandwiched with vanilla ice cream.

EPCOT


Michelle chose the Buche de Noel well... because it is Christmas and chocolate is never going to be a bad choice!

Jayne couldn't resist the  Spiked Frozen Apple Pie a combination of seasonal flavours with Ole Smoky Apple Pie Moonshine with added apple juice and cinnamon.

As usual, the Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the holidays will be taking place from 27 November through to the 30 December. However, there are some modifications and the saddest part is that the Candlelight Processional will not be happening.  

However, there will be the cookie stroll and Olaf's Holiday Tradition Expedition, where map and stickers can be purchased to take place in the fun scavenger hunt - priced at $7.99.

There will be character promenades from Santa (in his horse drawn carriage up to 24/12), Mickey and Friends in their Christmas finery, our friends from the Frozen film franchise as well as the ever beautiful Disney Princesses. 

The America Garden Theatre will present the Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre. The JAMMitors will be performing on the Mill Stage and there will be gospel, R&B and holiday songs on the World Showcase Stage. 

We have saved the best till last, there will also be the holiday kitchens, which we will review in an upcoming Patreon only show. 

Our final discussion was around our top tips for visiting Walt Disney World with someone who had not been before.
