When visiting the parks, I like to plan for days full of activity. Between riding my favorite attractions and finding that perfect viewing spot for a Disney character cavalcade, a midday energy boost is always in order – and there’s no better way to refresh between adventures than with a tasty snack featuring quite possibly the best food on the planet: cheese!
As “The Official Snack Cheese of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort,” Bel Brands cheese can be found in quick-bites and delicious dishes, and even in-park experiences. In fact, Mini Babybel’s signature red wax makes a cameo in one of my favorite photo spots!
In 2017, our friends at Bel Brands helped us celebrate the grand opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and guests have been saying “Cheese!” at Lunch Box ever since! After becoming one of Andy’s “honorary toys” and ordering from this backyard walk-up window, I love to take a seat at one of the Mini Babybel cheese chairs and enjoy classic American fare, old-fashioned soda floats and other Toy Story-themed specialties. (Psst: some tables also feature fun surprises, like a note Andy’s Mom left in his lunchbox!) And before flitting off to surpass my high score at Toy Story Mania!, I like to end my meal by snapping a selfie with one of Andy’s Green Army Men and the larger-than-life Mini Babybel.
If you’re anything like me, the hunt for delicious cheese snacks doesn’t end at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! When I’m craving something savory during EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE, Refreshment Port is a must-visit for Boursin’s featured dishes. Try out specialty menu items like Braised Beef Poutine featuring Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese sauce or – my favorite – Traditional Poutine topped with Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb Cheese crumbles. These items are the perfect bite before a journey through World Showcase.
From land openings to festivals, Bel Brands has joined us for celebrations both big and small over the years. Most recently, Mini Babybel joined in on the fun of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary celebration with limited-time co-branded packs which can be found throughout select quick-service locations. And, you also can expect an upcoming collaboration in honor of the Disney100 anniversary celebration – stay tuned for more details about that fun co-branded product!
Disney has collaborated with Bel Brands over the years to celebrate new film releases, too. This Halloween season, keep an eye out at your nearest Target location for Mini Babybel featuring our favorite Sanderson Sisters – the perfect snack to enjoy while watching Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+!
