Mother’s Day Sweets Arrive This Weekend at Disney World Resorts and Parks

Mothers Day Sweets and Treats are arriving today across Disney World!

The Mother’s Day Cake at The Grand Floridian

The Grand Floridian bakes up a cake that suits this elegant resort well.

Welcome to the Mimosa Miniature Gateau Golden Sponge Cake.

This delicate dessert is topped with a large white chocolate Cinderella slipper, decorative rose, and a few crispy pearls.

Inside you will find a generous layer of Mimosa-flavored mousse. The golden vanilla sponge cake balances well with the adult-flavored filling; a dessert fit for a queen.

Warning, it contains alcohol, but just a touch.

Promoted as an Individual serving size, but it is certainly big enough to share.

Find at Gasparilla Island Grill for $7.99

Grand Floridian Resort, access from outside on patio

Plenty of seating outdoors and a few indoor options

Mobile order only at this time

Comes in a plastic-domed to go container in a to-go bag

What Do Villas at Animal Kingdom Lodge Look Like?

Have you ever wondered what a villa looks like at the Animal Kingdom Lodge?

We recently spent a weekend at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Giraffes, Zebras and a multitude of other african animals roamed free right outside our balcony. Who else but Disney could offer such a magical place? We drifted off to dreamland each night with the splendor of these majestic creatures right outside our window. What a beautiful adventure.

Of course a Disney lodge would have a perfectly paired Disney moment as a focal feature in the suite.

This 5th floor villa was nicely equipped. I could stay for a while that’s for sure!

All the kids (young and old) played with the drums and other african musical instruments in the Zawadi Marketplace (that’s fancy talk for gift shop).

There were endless sights to be seen. Around every corner your eyes had a new wonder to behold.

Do animals come to your window at the Animal Kingdom Lodge?

Yes! My favorite was the animals outside our window. In the morning, the fog rolled in and I had my morning coffee on the balcony with these fellas.

There are many options for meals at the resort. We opted for a buffet breakfast, Mickey themed of course.

They also had a great game room by the pool. No one is bored at this resort, that’s for sure.

We nicknamed these guys Hans and Frans.


Can’t wait to make a return trip : )
