This is really good. It has a nice balance of fruit flavor and tartness with a thick whipped cream and moist shortcake.

The peach and raspberry taste fresh and natural.

The crispy pearls add a bit of crunchy texture though not much in the way of flavor. That said, they don’t take away from the other ingredients.

The shortcake on its own has a delicious buttery taste. It’s a well-done dessert and one of the best 50th anniversary quick-service options.

The Sun Bonnet Trio Strawberry Salad – $9.99

Mixed green salad with strawberries, tomato, red onion, and edible flowers

The photo in My Disney Experience shows the salad with kiwi, but the description says red onion and it comes with red onion instead. It is also available with chicken or pork for $11.49.

Our first observation was how fresh it looked, and thankfully, the taste matches the appearance. The greens are crisp. The strawberries and tomatoes and ripe and juicy.

We do question the decision to use red onion instead of kiwi. The extra burst of fruit would have been great.

The strawberry vinaigrette dressing is really nice. It is strawberry forward and a little tart. Adding more of it helps to offset the lack of kiwi.

Overall, this is a good option for those wanting something healthier or lighter.

  1. I’ll be honest, both of these are pretty underwhelming and don’t speak “50th Anniversary” to me. Not at all exciting and quite obviously paying $10 for $0.20 of ingredients with that salad especially with strawberries in season.
