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!
What's your favorite birthday or celebration extra at a theme park?Tweet
Other than that, we celebrated our honeymoon at Disney World and were chosen to be the Grand Marshalls in the parade! No food included in this treat, but it will always be a cherished memory.
As for Tony's remarks, all theme and amusement parks overcharge for food. At least Disney tries to offer something tasty and experiential for that "captive audience" upcharge.

Now, if you can tell me how to constantly get free cupcakes without having to buy anything, I will be surprised...and grateful.
