Choosing the perfect dessert at Walt Disney World can be daunting. To make it easier, we’ve compiled eight of our favorite treats found across Walt Disney World, from the adventurous Dole Whip to the classic Mickey Bar. Read on and indulge!
Mickey Ice Cream Bar
Who’s the leader of the band that’s made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E! And now, in the Walt Disney Parks, you can taste a frozen treat that’s designed after the mouse himself. The iconic Mickey Bar is a refreshing vanilla popsicle covered in a hard shell of chocolate. Trust us, this classic dessert is a staple for a reason.
Dole Whip in Adventureland
You may have heard whisperings of this legendary at Adventureland — the Dole Whip. The Dole Whip first premiered in the 1980s and has since become a thing of worship for lovers of all things Disney. In Magic Kingdom, find this pineapple-infused frozen treat inside Adventureland near Aladdin’s Magic Carpets. Be warned – the line for one of these frozen snacks often wraps around the corner!
The Kitchen Sink at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop
Like the name suggests, this sundae delight includes everything but… you get the idea. The menu explains that “The Kitchen Sink” serves a party of four at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop along Disney’s Boardwalk. This sundae comes with scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream covered in every topping available at the soda shop.
Churros at Epcot
Though the churro can be found at most Walt Disney World parks, our top churro is at Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion. This classic Mexican treat comes topped with delicious cinnamon sugar. For a more unique spin on this classic treat, head over to the Churro Cart near Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom — this watermelon-infused churro will tingle your taste buds.
Ice Cream at Hollywood Scoops in Hollywood Studios
Sometimes, all you need is a classic scoop of ice cream — before riding the legendary Tower of Terror, of course. Located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Hollywood Scoops offers an array of yummy ice cream flavors. Grab a scoop and scarf it down before heading next door to take a spin on Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster or a round of drops on the Tower of Terror.
Napoleon at Epcot’s France Pavilion
Continue your sweet tooth journey to the France Pavilion at Epcot by tasting the French dessert, the Napoleon. This layered pastry features fluffy, whipped layers of custard that will transport you to the streets of Paris.
Mickey Mouse Caramel Apple on Main Street
Walking down Main Street USA, you may catch the autumnal scent of spices and fruit wafting toward you — that’s the caramel apples found in the Candy Palace. These apples are hard to miss; they come adorned with ears and red pants, very reminiscent to a certain mouse who lives down the way.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Milkshake at Disney Springs
In the heart of Disney Springs, find the Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop, featuring a slew of treats from the global chocolatier. Our top pick, though, is the thick chocolate milkshake, featuring the perfect blend of Ghirardelli chocolate infused with milk and ice cream.
