30 Magical Moments: #6 Devour a White Chocolate Elephant Cupcake

We're back with the 30 Magical Moments series! When we left off LaRae and I had just given up on a super chilly swim at Pop Century.  After warm showers and some rest time, we hopped on a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom.  We got to Animal Kingdom right as the parade was ending, so the crowds were clearing out. Let me tell you, if you want to walk on to everything at Animal Kingdom during peak level crowds, get there after the parade and spend the evening there until closing time!

As we entered, we felt like the park was closing as that many people were leaving.  Here you can see the masses heading out of the park: 

Just keep swimming... just keep swimming...

For some reason I thought I needed to take an awkward Tree of Life selfie.  That's my sister in the left side of this photo.  She's either oblivious to or ignoring me turning & walking backwards trying to capture this picture. I mean, sure, I could have asked her to take my picture, but this is high quality photography! ;-)

The Kilimanjaro Safari was going to close soon, so we went straight there.  We walked right on the ride.  The walk to the front of the queue was what made the wait "long."  Usually when I ride the Safari I take photos nonstop.  This time I just enjoyed the animals, and I wasn't disappointed!  These are the only two photos I snapped!

The entrance to the Safari is right by the Kusafari Bakery.  As we got off of the Safari, we went straight  to grab Magical Moment #6: enjoying a White Elephant Cupcake!  This is my favorite Walt Disney World cupcake.  It's chocolate cake with a huge mound of white icing. The icing has a glob of German chocolate icing in the center and is coated in toasted coconut.  This version of a German chocolate cupcake is to die for!   LaRae got a treat as well, and we found a seat by the water to devour our treats. Yuuuuuuummmmmmyyy!  My mouth is watering just looking at this photo!

Did I mention it's topped with a white chocolate elephant lollipop??

The next Magical Moment on the list happened shortly after this, so I'll finish this post now.  A quick hint: the next moment has me facing my fears! Do you know where we're going next? 


  1. We love that cupcake too! And now I'm craving one. :)

    1. Writing this post had my mouth watering! I saw it on Disney Food Blog a year or three ago and knew I had to try one. I haven't been the same ever since. ;-)
