Amorette’s Patisserie In Disney Springs

If you love sweets as much as I do, I’ve got some fantastic news for you. On May 15, 2016, a brand new high-end bakery will open in Disney Springs – Amorette’s Patisserie – aka heaven on earth for those of us addicted to sugary goodness!

Amorette's Patisserie 7This adorable shop will offer delicious sweets beautifully decorated by Walt Disney World’s best pastry chefs. The location itself will even feature an on-stage finishing kitchen so guests can watch the pastry chefs expertly decorate the artistic cakes.

There are so many treats to try, you may have to make more than one visit during your vacation. On the menu you’ll find chocolate-chocolate chunk cookies, macarons, sacher torte, opera cake, eclairs, and cheesecake just to name a few. There are also signature sweets like the “Strawberry Fields of OC” which is a decadent strawberry mousse with basil sugar and lemon curd or the “Reflection in Memphis” which is a tasty peanut blondie with bacon, banana, and chocolate.

Of course, you’ll need something to wash down all of the that sugary deliciousness and they’ve got you covered. Everything from champagne to an ice cold glass of milk are available. And if you’re looking to push yourself into a full sugar coma, go for Amorette’s Hot Chocolate Ganache which is basically like drinking a cup of hot fudge topped with Chantilly and shaved dark chocolate. Talk about rich!

Amorette’s Patisserie will open in Town Center at Disney Springs on May 15, and beginning on May 22, guests can pre-order cakes by calling 407-934-3500 with 72 business hours advance notice. I plan to check this place out during my next trip, and I’ll be sure to let you know what I thought. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it!
