Erin McKenna Locations

Erin McKenna has locations in three cities:

  • New York City,
  • Los Angeles,
  • and Orlando (at Disney Springs). 

The New York City and Los Angeles locations have personal delivery service through Postmates (aaaaamaazing!), and The Erin McKenna bakery Orlando location actually supplies baked goods to a couple of resorts and restaurants throughout Disney World such as Art of Animation and Pop Century. 

Another great thing about the Erin McKenna bakery Orlando / Disney Springs location is that you can use your Walt Disney World dining credits to purchase baked goods.  Most items are eligible for use of your snack credits!  Check out my full-post here on tips for eating gluten-free at Walt Disney World.

~~ If you’re planning a trip to Disney, I highly recommend contacting Jessica Tullino at http://www.imagineeredvacations.com.  She is a Disney Concierge and she planned everything for us (fast passes, meal reservations, tips, and more!) plus found us some excellent deals at no extra cost to us! I highly recommend her—click through to her website for a quote and tell her I, Sharon from The Helpful GF, recommended you.~~

I’ve personally visited both the New York City and Orlando locations.  Both are phenomenal!  And I’m sure the Los Angeles location is just as spectacular.
