Good Morning: Voodoo Doughnut at City Walk Orlando
Good Morning Friends! Over the weekend (after participating in a 5k) Katie and I visited Voodoo Doughnut, the newest food offering at City Walk here in Orlando. I've heard rave reviews from those who have visited, but haven't had the opportunity to go, especially since I heard the lines can be close to an hour long. I love donuts, but I don't think any donut is worth an hour wait. But, on a rainy Sunday at 6:30 in the evening, 20 minutes isn't too bad of a wait.
Luckily, the rain held off while we stood in line and there were umbrellas incase Mother Nature decided to not cooperate. A team member stood by to help direct the line (no line cutters, although a few confused tourists did try) and to answer any questions. We were told that there are 51 different types of donuts found inside, all made in-house! A menu circulated through the line, outlining a few of the options they had, including their signature Voodoo Doll, a raised yeast doughnut filled with raspberry jelly topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake.
Once we got inside, there was a carousel of doughnuts, showcasing the different options of delicious dough they had. They also had a menu inside, which included a list of their vegan options.
Doughnuts can be bought individually or in a dozen. Katie and I both got 6 each, and I opted for a few vegan doughnuts. Of course, the vegan doughnuts had a higher price point, but it wasn't too bad. For 6 doughnuts, half of which were vegan, I only paid $2 more than Katie did for 6 non-vegan doughnuts.
My only complaint is how big the boxes are. We went to Voodoo as soon as we got to City Walk, then went over to Cowfish for dinner. The boxes are just too big and awkward to carry around City Walk and had we known, we would have gotten fewer doughnuts. Plus, we kept getting stopped by people asking where we got them and team members joking that the doughnuts were for them.
I had the apple fritter for breakfast and it was more than filling - probably should have only had half, but it was so good! They are very "light" and don't sit in my stomach like other doughnuts do. Honestly, I'd wait again to try some of the other flavors. Definitely worth the trip.
