One of our favorite Walt Disney World restaurants to stop at for a lovely brunch experience, the Grand Floridian Cafe has a special new dessert on the menu just for “The Most Magical Celebration on Earth.” The 50th Anniversary Vintage Minnie’s Brown Betty Profiterole is a crunchy-topped cream puff filled with one of Walt’s favorite flavors of cinnamon-spiced apples and Chantilly cream. It sounds incredible, and when paired with garden-side views and the Victorian theming and decor that make Grand Floridian Cafe a unique experience, we just cannot wait to give it a try!
