PHOTOS, REVIEW: The Queen of Hearts Treats Have Stolen Our Hearts at the Disney Villains After Hours 2020 Event in the Magic Kingdom

Tonight starts the first of many Disney Villains After Hours 2020 events that will run on select nights until July 10th, 2020. The event this year has brought new merchandise, a new parade, and tasty treats themed after several classic Disney villains. We’ve been snacking our way through them and next up is the Queen of Hearts, who has a multitude of treats at the Chesire Cafe.

 Royal Majesty – $4.29

The Royal Majesty is a strawberry flavored cake pop, dipped in red chocolate and coated in red sprinkles.

This cake pop is great! It’s moist, and the strawberry flavor really comes through. There wasn’t too much frosting or sugar- this is exactly how a cake pop should be. We were also impressed in its size, as it was actually rather large.

 Painting the Roses Red – $5.99

Painting the Roses Red is a cheesecake mousse, raspberry gelee, red cocoa butter, and buttercream leaves.

This cheesecake wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad, it was standard Disney counter-service cheesecake. We did appreciate the strong and sweet raspberry filling (look at that cross-section!) but we’d probably recommend you skip this treat for something better.

Hearts on Fire – $4.99

The Hearts on Fire- which is fruit punch, Coca-Cola, and strawberry Pop Rocks garnished with a strawberry- is actually really good. While the fruit punch is the most profound flavor in this drink, you definitely get cola taste on the backend.

We aren’t quite sure if the Pop Rocks add anything to the drink, but they don’t bother us that they are there. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention how cute that strawberry heart garnish is, and how it’s such a subtle but smart way to honor the Queen of Hearts.

All in all, we enjoyed what the Queen of Hearts had to offer us at the Chesire Cafe. If you tried any of the treats, which was your favorite? Leave us a comment below!

That “Painting the Roses Red” has been the taste-test item on the “Taste of the Magic Kingdom VIP Tour” for a bit now. We had it a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately, for legal reasons, Disney can’t collect comments during that taste-test – they just provide a survey card for you to fill in on the overall, the taste, and the presentation. We agreed – we don’t love cheesecake mousse, although when you get a bite of the buttercream, mousse, and filling all together, it’s a pretty good bite.
