Free cupcakes at the Walt Disney World Resort? Let's celebrate!
Written by Amanda Jenkins
There is nothing like celebrating a birthday or anniversary, especially on vacation. Walt Disney World has its own kind of magic to sprinkle on your special day. When you book dining reservations, be sure to tell them what you are celebrating. When you arrive at your table, Mickey confetti will be sprinkled everywhere. After dinner you will be graced with a special cupcake. What makes it even more special is that it is FREE. Nothing tastes better than a delicious cupcake that wasn't added on to your bill.
I have been able to celebrate both a wedding anniversary and a two birthdays at Walt Disney World. Our wedding anniversary trip was showered with seven days of free champagne and a cupcake to share. My birthdays were again an all-week event of free cupcakes. One thing I noticed on our last trip in December, was that each place we dined at had begun to get creative. Each cupcake had its own design, taste, and special touch. Here are a few of my favorites.
Remember, let Disney know if you are wanting to celebrate during your vacation. You will be pleasantly surprised at the little free touches of magic.
Cupcake from Tusker House: This was more of a pound cake with vanilla frosting. It had a very light flavor.
Cupcake from Chef Mickey's: This vanilla cupcake with whipped icing was my only winter cupcake. The snowflake was a creamy white chocolate candy.
Cupcake from Ohana: This cupcake was all chocolate and decadent. The little umbrella definitely put me in an island frame of mind.
Cupcake from Akershus Royal Banquet Hall: This was by far my favorite for design and presentation. It had a delicate lemon flavor with creamy frosting. I loved it!
