Hungry for some over-the-top doughnuts when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort? Disney's got you — or will soon — with the debut of Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew in Disney Springs' West Side.
The new doughnut shop is going in across from Splitsville at the entrance to the Orange parking garage and will serve a variety of "hand-crafted" yeast and cake doughnuts.
If you're thinking that looks like a certain doughnut place from a certain other theme park shopping and dining district up the road, well, you wouldn't need to use any "voodoo" to confirm that suspicion. Like milkshakes, doughnuts provide another sweet treat to get theme park resorts into visitors' Instagram feeds. So Disney Springs will get in the game with this Florida-themed bakery.
"The fried circle of dough is a simple concoction with the ability to showcase chef-inspired flavors and toppings," Everglazed co-owner Guy Revelle said in a press release. "You are officially warned: We spoke to your diet – and it's taking some time off when we open our doors."
No word yet on that opening date, though.

Shame - It would have been fun to see the mouse try to combat VooDoo with some other type of treat rather than create a knock-off of what already exists. I love the "EverGlazed" name as a tip of the hat to the Everglades, but I'm not sure how many out of state or International guests will get the pun.
I think it would have been a lot smarter for Disney to battle back with high end churros, or perhaps recreate the new flavored popcorn shop that has opened in TDL. This would have been a great chance to up the popcorn game in Orlando rather than to just make a copy-cat Voo-Doo.
Has the potential to be a better experience than Voo Doo because I ain't gotta pay to park.
Mr. McCullough: "I think it would have been a lot smarter for Disney to battle back with high end churros ..."
Me: The way Robert is writing this the shop is owned by a tenant and not Disney. So ...
With the new Ample Hills Creamery being nixed this summer, nice to see a good sweet spot on the West Side. Looking forward to see how "outside of the box" they can get with their donuts. Good add to this section of Disney Springs

I've never been a fan of these over-the-top, too pretty to eat donuts. I do like some of the more exotic donuts that Voodoo produces with different base batters paired with curated toppings that more resemble a meal than a work of art. The boring glazed ring donuts with more bizarre toppings and piped on fondant than could possibly fit on the modest base are just style over substance.
Hopefully this new shop will be more than just glazed donuts run down the sundae topping bar.
