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

Weekly Roundup – April 18

Another week at Dad For Disney has come and going and for the first time in a long time, there was a new article everyday.  Spend some time, this weekend, catching up on what you may have missed.

We started the week looking at some ways Disneyland is “better” than Walt Disney World.

We took a swim in some of the best pools at Walt Disney World.

Saw some signs on another edition of Wordless Wednesday.

We went over to EPCOT and grabbed a snack at L’Artisan des Glaces.

The news wire rolled with some updates from the world.

Finally, we grabbed some popcorn and took in some of the forgotten Disney movies of the 1980’s.

I will be back, next week, with another full slate of articles from the world of Disney.

L’Artisan des Glaces – A Review

France is known for its wonderful cuisine.  Walt Disney World has brought that cuisine over to EPCOT and we get to enjoy it everyday in the France Pavilion.  There are LOTS of choices in the France pavilion.  A person could spend an entire day just eating in France.  There is just so much to choose from: Chefs de France, Monsieur Paul (for those with the big bucks), Boulangerie Patisserie les Halles, Crepes de France, Vin de France (serving both wine and slushes), and finally L’Artisan des Glaces.

L’Artisan des Glaces is tucked away in the back of the pavilion on the way to Boulangerie Patisserie.  I have rarely seen it with a long line (though, to be fair, I’ve never gone in the mid-afternoon in the summer).  It’s one of the hidden gems of EPCOT and, in my opinion, serves the best ice cream sandwich in all of Walt Disney World.

Pumpkin in the Parks

With the calendar turning to October, most people minds turn to thoughts of pumpkin and Halloween.  Thankfully, there are a couple of snack stands which have added some pumpkin options to their snack menu.  Those two places are the funnel cake stand in The American Experience and L’Artisan des Glaces at the France Pavilion.

The American Experience has replaced its double chocolate funnel cake (a personal favorite of mine) with a pumpkin spice funnel cake.

This seasonal funnel cake is not available for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.  It is available for cash/charge back to the room for $8.00 which is the same price as the double chocolate funnel cake.

Pictured above is the pumpkin spice macaron ice cream sandwich.  You get a scoop of pumpkin spice ice cream placed between two macaron.  This snack is available for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit or for cash/room charge at $3.99.

The pumpkin spice is also available in a cone or a dish.  It is also available in my favorite snack from the L’Artisan des Glaces snack shop….the pressed brioche ice cream sandwich.  The pressed brioche is not available for a snack credit.  It costs $6.10.

It also sounds like that when October and Halloween is over that the pumpkin spice ice cream is going to be replaced with a more winter/Christmas themed ice cream.  YUM!

Weekend Trip Report – Day One

My journey to Walt Disney World began bright and early at 5:45 am as my wife and I woke up to head the airport.  Our daughter was safe and sound with my wife’s family and had not idea that we were taking this trip.  We had an uneventful drive to the airport and getting through security was a breeze.  Our flight to Charlotte was at the gate and ready to go.  Our flight was relatively straight forward.  My wife and I got to both enjoy aisle seats.  We got to Charlotte early made our way to our gate for Orlando.  Again, things went without a hiccup.  Flight arrived on-time and we started the boarding process early.  Another uneventful flight and we were in Orlando.
