REVIEW: We Ate a Lightsaber in Disney World…and We Regret It

Disney World is jam-packed with new treats, and we don’t mind!

Magic Kingdom

We’ve seen special treats hit Disney World for the 50th Anniversary, Halfway to Halloween event, Mother’s Day, and now — summer! If you’re jumping into the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+, and you’re looking for a way to celebrate the force in Disney World — there’s a treat for that. And, of course, we wouldn’t be DFB if we didn’t try it!

Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs is home to unique pastries, champagne, and more! And we headed over to Amorette’s Patisserie today to try the new Blue Obi-Wan Lightsaber Éclair, which was $8. The Éclair comes with butterfly pea flower blue icing, rock candy, and a white chocolate lightsaber. We have to admit…the force isn’t strong with this one. 

The Lightsaber Eclair

The Éclair was light and fluffy, as it should be. But the cream filling was just…okay. The traditional filling is much sweeter, and we prefer it over this cream filling. And for the $8 price tag, we were hoping for a bigger size. This thing is pretty small considering how much we spent on it.

Relatively Small

This treat was messy too, thanks to the melting chocolate, glitter, and blue frosting. We also hardly got any rock candy crystals, but that may have just been a fluke.

Overall, if you’re a Star Wars fan, or want a cute pic for your Instagram feed, then this is worth a try. If you’re not wanting to spend $8 on an okay treat, then you may want to try something else. We loved the Ube Banana Cake we tried at Amorette’s, so if you’re looking for a tasty and unique treat, this one might be for you!

The Inside

While this one was a miss for us, we’re still hoping that they release more Star Wars-themed treats in honor of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series! Don’t forget — you can get lightsaber churros again in Disney World for a limited-time! And we’ll continue to review the latest foods hitting the parks, so stay tuned to DFB!
