Celebrate Elvis’ Birthday With The King Cupcake at Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on January 8th, 2013 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer


We aren’t at Graceland to celebrate Elvis Presley’s birthday today, but you can bet we’re making a beeline to the Bakery Shop in the food court at Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World Resort for an excuse to dig into The King Cupcake, a tribute to the King of Rock ‘n Roll.

Celebrate Elvis’ Birthday With The King Cupcake at Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World Resort

Disney Pop Century Resort celebrates pop culture from the 1950s onward, so it’s a perfectly themed dessert fit for, well, a king. One of Elvis’ favorite sandwiches was peanut butter, banana and bacon, so this sweet is a riff on that unusual combo. Even better than a sandwich, this is a moist chocolate cupcake filled with banana custard and topped with a whipped peanut butter icing. And just for Elvis, there’s a flourish of candied bacon and a chocolate Pop Century logo atop.

Cost is $3.99 and counts as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan.

*drools* That looks delicious. I wish my Disney trip hadn’t ended two weeks ago. And my Art of Animation hotel room was right next to the bridge to Pop Century too!

I wish you had said something yesterday, because I would have gone out of my way to get there today to get one (or two.)
Sad.

Yet another reason Pop Century is my ‘go to’ value resort! I recommend it, and the tie dye cheesecake, to everyone!

I’ve had the tie-dye cheesecake. Very fun!

I tried this last night for dessert. All I can say is “Thank you, thank you very much” (in my best Elvis voice) for letting us know!
