New Macaron Heart Brings Valentine’s Day Sweetness to Disney World
February has arrived here in beautiful Walt Disney World, bringing with it the first flurries of Valentine’s Day! We’re talking sweet treats and eats aplenty, all to be enjoyed in some of the resort’s most picture-perfect spots.
Come with us as we check out some of the tastiest new flavors, all full of Valentine’s romance!
Raspberry Macaron Heart
This morning, our MickeyBlog reporters are over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa — arguably the most romantic of all the Disney hotels. Here, we’ve located a beautifully sweet new treat available on one of the resort’s restaurant menus, so we knew we had to place an order!
We’re sure glad we came because just look at how adorable this treat is!
What we have here is a Raspberry Macaron Heart, a perfect treat to enjoy in this most romantic month.
It’s a classic, heart-shaped macaron filled with fresh raspberries, raspberry cream, and a tangy passion fruit curd for $5.99. Sounds delicious!
The treat is even finished with a flurry of heart-shaped sprinkles in red and pink, to add even more cute romance to the treat!
It was our MickeyBlogger Elyssa who tried this dessert today, and we’re happy to report that she definitely enjoyed it. According to Elyssa, the macaron was perfectly crisp and subtly sweet, perfectly complimenting the consistencies of its filling.
Elyssa told us that the passion fruit curd was delicious and worked well with the light raspberry cream, while the fresh raspberries themselves brought a tangy sweetness that reminded us of the coming spring.
Doesn’t it sound perfect?
If you’d like to try this for yourself, be sure to hop off the monorail at the Grand Floridian this month. The limited-time treat can be found at Gasparilla Island Grill and costs $5.99 for a portion.
In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to MickeyBlog as we continue the countdown to Valentine’s Day here at Walt Disney World. So far, we’ve been loving the beautiful array of gifts available in the stores and on shopDisney, and we can’t wait to enjoy many more tasty treats as the month goes on!
