Vendor Spotlight: It’s Tasty Too Cakes

Although Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings prohibits the use of outside vendors for food at its events, couples planning events at the Swan & Dolphin, Fulton’s, Coronado Springs, Shades of Green and the hotels of Downtown Disney have the freedom to choose their own wedding cake baker. Likewise, those having Memories Collection events, which do not include cake, or celebrating an anniversary or an engagement may also be interested in some non-Disney options for having a cake delivered to a restaurant or a resort.

On today’s show, I chat with Heather Michaud, owner of It’s Tasty Too, who has provided cakes for numerous events around Walt Disney World. She shares tips on pricing, trends, and flavors; explains the rules surrounding cake designs, especially those incorporating Disney characters; offers advice for those who want to preserve their top layer; and explains how to communicate your wedding cake vision to your baker.

Whether you’re headed to Walt Disney World to propose, elope or celebrate an anniversary, Private Dining at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa can help you plan a romantic private event for two in an out-of-the-way spot at the hotel. On today’s show, I cover the basics of planning one of these events, and then guest Tracy Brooks shares details of the two dinners she’s held at the Grand Floridian, complete with custom desserts, a view of the Electrical Water Pageant and fireworks!

Honeymooning at the Holidays: Incorporating Disney’s Special Events

One of the easiest ways to make your Walt Disney World or Disneyland honeymoon extra special is to plan it around one of the parks’ special celebrations—either a holiday or an event like the International Flower & Garden Festival or Star Wars Weekends. On today’s show, Magical Day Weddings Mentor Chrysty Summers and I look at the pros and cons of honeymooning at these times and offer suggestions for the extra special activities and events available on both coasts, from carriage rides and fireworks displays to parties and tours.
