  • Guests will be able to discover this new bakery with a whimsical atmosphere that complements the idyllic charm of Disney’s BoardWalk. Upon entering, guests will find counters lined with handmade cakes that are one-of-a-kind in beauty and taste, attractively displayed on French porcelain platters topped with glass domes. Guests can indulge in these and more:
    • Cookies

    • Dessert bars
    • Pies
    • Cheesecakes
  • As for The Cake Bake Shop, a new table-service restaurant with glistening cocktails and a specially curated menu, guests will be able to treat their senses to innovative and seasonal cuisine, including elegant favorites and delicious surprises.
