So what was the verdict?
Only one week into the new year, and 2014 is already looking like it's going to be a great one for Disney World fans. Want a sneak peek into what is coming this year? From things I know are coming to things I think I know to pure speculation, here are my 14 Previews and Predictions for Walt Disney World in 2014.
Earlier in the year, it seemed like almost every site I visited mentioned the mythical Cronut. This croissant/donut hybrid originated at the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York and quickly became a phenomenon. Dozens upon dozens of people would line up each morning and wait an insanely long time for a chance to try the innovative pastry. As the Cronut craze grew, many other bakeries across the country jumped in on the trend to varying success.
Disney World has recently joined the Cronut craze, premiering their Croissant Doughnut at Epcot. But is it any good? And is it worth the $4.50 they are asking for it?
