Plaza Ice Cream Parlor vs. L’Artisan des Glaces

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are sharing some of the best snacks you can find in the Disney Parks.


This article is going to focus on two of the best ice cream shops that Walt Disney World has to offer. The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom and L’Artisan des Glaces located in the France Pavilion of EPCOT’s World Showcase.  Continue reading Plaza Ice Cream Parlor vs. L’Artisan des Glaces

Animation Monday: Home on the Range

What do you get when you combine a big-name cast, lots of story artists, production delays, and a poorly put together plot?  You get this week’s Animation Monday movie: Home on the Range.  This movie was heavy with name actors (Rosanne Barr, Dame Judi Dench, Jennifer Tilly, Cuba Gooding Jr., Steve Buscemi, and Patrick Warburton).  Continue reading Animation Monday: Home on the Range

Irresponsible Menu Items

I came across the following picture on the Por Favor Podcast Facebook page today.

I could not believe what I saw.  A Pop-Tart Breakfast Sandwich on the menu?!?!?!  Disney has continued to push the envelope when it came to blending popular foods together.   The Mac-and-Cheese Cones at Disneyland and the seasonal Golden Oak Outpost in Frontierland which serves waffle fries with a variety of toppings from BLT to BBQ pulled pork.  The Grand Floridan had a regional hot dog of the day on their menu for a while.

This, however, crosses over into the irresponsible.  Lots of people let their diets go when they go on vacation.    That said, this breakfast sandwich is straight out of the Dr. Nick Rivera (from The Simpsons) School of Weight Gain.

Dr. Nick

Yes, this is an actual line from an actual episode of The Simpsons and now Disney has turned fantasy into reality.  This time, it can do more harm than good.  Pop-Tarts are full of carbs but not the good kind.  The kind derived right from sugar which could lead to diabetes.

Many people go to Walt Disney World and Disneyland with the expectation that we are going to gain weight while on vacation.  We expect that weight gain to come from enjoying high-quality food made by some the world’s best chefs.  We don’t expect that gain to come from eating food in unhealthy combinations or in combinations that never should have been combined in the first place.  This Pop-Tart Breakfast Sandwich is neither iconic (to fit into the Pop Century theme) or made with foods that should ever be combined.

Thanks for reading!


Animation Monday: Bambi

Packed up….moved into a house….it’s time to return to Animation Monday.  We left off at one of the classic Disney movies of all time….Bambi.  This is was movie that almost never became a Disney movie.  MGM held the rights to Bambi for over five years with the intention to make a live-action version of the story.  However, they could never make it work and eventually sold the movie rights to Walt Disney in 1937.
