*NEW* Croissant Donut with Cinnamon-Sugar – $6.00

Epcot Food and Wine 2018 Taste Track

The ‘cronut’ gained popularity a few years ago and has been sweeping the nation since. It’s crunchy on the outside, flaky on the inside, and has a great coating of cinnamon sugar to make it almost like a churro (better than the Walt Disney World version for sure).

*NEW* Holiday Yeast Donut with Vanilla Icing and Red and White Sprinkles – $5.00

This is basically your standard cake-like donut. Surprisingly, it’s much better than the donuts we’ve had here in the past, which at times are so stale and almost inedible.

The icing is nice and sweet and the sprinkles had a really fun crunch.

It’s a basic donut and there’s really nothing wrong with it, but if you’re going to spend this much on a donut, we’d recommend you check out Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew in Disney Springs.

Chocolate Peppermint Donut – $5.00

With a light peppermint flavor, it’s the same soft donut as the others. There is a rich, decadent chocolate icing in the center.

Eggnog and Cream-filled Donut with Cinnamon Icing and Crumbled Gingersnap Cookies – $5.00

This is the best of the bunch for eggnog lovers. The cream has a rich eggnog flavor. The donut around it is soft and flaky. The cookies add a nice crunch.

Gingerbread Milk Shake (nonalcoholic) – $4.50

This has a potent flavor of gingerbread throughout. It’s very creamy and also nutmeg heavy. That said, we’re not sure we would recommend it.

*NEW* Coppertail Brewing Co. Gingerbread Stout, Tampa, FL (14.4% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From Untappd: “You ever make gingerbread houses as a kid? Or still as an a adult? It’s that, in stout form. This stout owes all its flavors to copious amounts of malt and an extended vacation in local distiller Gambler’s Bay spiced rum barrels.”


Gingerbread Milk Shake with Whipped Cream Vodka – $11.50

We liked the gingerbread milkshake as-is, but the vodka adds an extra kick.
