Universal Orlando Resort is thrilled to share new information about the highly anticipated Minion Land, set to open this summer at Universal Studios Florida. In a collaboration between Universal's esteemed creative team and the renowned filmmakers from Illumination, this immersive new area expands upon the beloved Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, offering guests of all ages a chance to step into the vibrant world of the Minions like never before.
Just like me, Michelle Westfall enjoys pumpkin spice. So Westfall was kind enough to share the recipe for the Pumpkins Spiced Log Cake from Loews Pacific Resort. And, of course, I had to add it to my list of Universal Recipes when I'm trying to impress at a dinner party. So I will share the recipe with you so you can add it to your recipe book. Then, be sure to share with me what you thought of it. Happy spooky season!
Slightly over four years ago, a Portland based doughnut shop, opened a location at Universal Orlando CityWalk. This themed doughnut place already had a location at Universal Studios Hollywood. This doughnut place, Voodoo Doughnuts, quickly fit in nicely at Universal Orlando Resort. The queues for these doughnuts can grow long depending on time of day. In recent months, a separate mobile order pickup area was designed for guests.
Currently, Voodoo Doughnut sells over fifty different types of doughnuts. Thirteen of those doughnuts classify as vegan doughnuts. As a result of this place, a strange idea developed in the minds of the Universal Food Blog team. What would it be like to eat most of these doughnuts at Voodoo Doughnuts all at once?
Food Fight: Beignets
With it being Fat Tuesday, we cannot go without talking about a classic. The French settlers brought beignets with them as they migrated to the eastern coast of Canada to an area called Acadia in the 17th century. Unfortunately, many Acadians were forced to migrate as the British came to control their area. As a result, many Arcadians settled in Louisiana. Their descendants became known as Cajuns. With their migration to the southern USA, they brought their culture, language,and cuisine. The mighty beignet continues to display that cuisine. During this time of year, you can find beignets in many places. Today, we are going to decide which beignets are better between the 2022 Universal Studios Florida Mardi Gras version in comparison to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort version.
