In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating the contributions of women throughout our history and celebrating some of the women who are pioneering our future. We’re keeping this celebration alive at Disney Springs and will be spotlighting the talented women who showcase their super powers as entrepreneurs, to the business-savvy role models and artists behind-the-scenes.
Starting today, I’m so excited to share that “Celebrate HER Story at Disney Springs” puts the spotlight on those talented female cast members, artists, and business leaders making a positive impact at Disney Springs. From special treats created by women, talented female-led entertainment, and unique offerings, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this month!
Celebrate Women and Artistry: We’re celebrating women who have paved the way and are leading the next generation of artists including those who work in art and illustration to filmmaking and entertainment. Be on the lookout and mark your calendars for these happenings:
Delight Your Taste Buds: Many of our guests love all the “Instagrammable” creations that come from Disney Springs and I’m pleased to give you a little peek behind the curtain of two of the powerhouse women who make the ideas come to life. Chef Yolanda Lazo Colon from Amorette’s Patisserie and Chef Amanda Lauder from The Ganachery both execute the creative development of our food & beverage offerings as well as manage the daily operation of their locations, all while leading a talented team of cast members.
During the month of March, both chefs have created their own unique offering inspired by Women’s History Month and what it means to them. At Amorette’s Patisserie, Chef Yoly has whipped up Chef Yoly’s Flancocho, a beautiful mix of her two favorite desserts (chocolate cake and flan) inspired by her Puerto Rican heritage. At The Ganachery, indulge your palate with Chef Amanda’s Chef Toque Bonbon — a sweet treat inspired by her childhood dream of becoming a pastry chef filled with Dark 65% chocolate, Morello cherry gel, and pistachio ganache. Chef Amanda is also bringing back the guest-favorite Captain Marvel Chocolate Piñata filled with pecan toffee crunch pieces and decorated in the superhero’s iconic red, gold, and blue signature colors.
We’re also paying homage to our favorite mom and superhero Elastigirl, with the new Mrs. Incredible Float made with black cherry lemonade, strawberry and lemon DOLE Whip served with a Mrs. Incredible novelty straw at Marketplace Snacks.
At City Works Eatery & Pour House, the restaurant is spotlighting the “Her Hops Flight” featuring four female-owned/led breweries from the southeast including:

Throughout 2021, Sprinkles will also be donating over $25K to various female empowerment organizations including Step Up.
