Vegan Bakery Replaces McDonald's at WDW!

One McDonald's down, a few thousand to go!

As many are probably already aware, the McDonald's at the Marketplace in Downtown Disney is out, (whoo-hoo!) and in its place are a few new restaurants featuring supposedly healthier fare. (If you want to consider antibiotic-free burgers and grilled chicken as "healthy"...)

The real news, though, is that in this husk of the now-defunct fast food behemoth is a BabyCakes vegan and gluten-free bakery! If that isn't a symbolic victory, I don't know what is.

I haven't been there yet, nor have I been able to sample any of BabyCakes delicious looking desserts from their other locations, but you can learn a bit more on their website:

If anyone has the opportunity to try it out, please let us know!


  1. Woot! I'm going just before Christmas, will let you know!

  2. I accidentally found BabyCakes on my way out of WDW in December. Literally...I was walking out of Downtown Disney to the parking lot for our drive home when I walked through that building. I was so excited to see them there! I bought a lemon cupcake, a chocolate mint cupcake, brownie bites, and a chocolate frosted cake doughnut to share with my family. The doughnut was AMAZING. I wished I had bought way more than one! If I'd found this earlier in our trip, we would've made several visits. It's a must.

  3. I've been to BabyCakes several times now and it's always fabulous. Expensive, but worth it. Especially the chocolate donuts...
