10 Best Summer Desserts at Disney
Everything about being at Disney enriches our senses. We adore seeing the iconic characters, becoming thrill seekers with the goosebump inducing rides, and we even indulge our appetites a bit… okay maybe a lot. Especially our sweet tooths! When it comes to Disney desserts we can’t resist the urge to bite into some delicious chocolate Mickey ears whenever we get the chance. Yes, there’s always the visible ice cream carts, or the funnel cakes that are so potent and delicious smelling,that our noses draw us straight to the window shop—but what about those hidden gems throughout the parks and even in Disney Springs or Downtown Disney? Here are our favorite summer desserts at Disney!
There are countless options of Disney desserts and sweets, a pick for every traveler’s craving in summer time, it’s just about knowing where to look. Read on as we discuss ten of our favorite summer Disney desserts and where you can find them during your next vacation to the Disney parks.
1. Dole Whips
Located in Aloha Isle at Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park (as well as a few other places!). There’s no way to talk about iconic Disney desserts and not start off by mentioning the beloved Dole Whip. A traditional pineapple soft serve, this yummy treat comes in additional flavors like orange and vanilla (ask for a swirl!) and can even be made into a Dole Whip Float—yes please!
2. Mickey Ears Caramel Apple
While the caramel, candied and nutty-covered apples can be found all over Disney’s theme parks, try Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney Springs for custom made (created with all your favorite toppings) caramel apples. Throughout the year, don’t miss out on seasonal inspired Disney dessert apples. They’re considered healthy, right?
3. Iron Horse Fairy Tale Cuvee
Located at Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs, those of us over 21 can indulge in some sparkling champagne, or what Disney refers to Cuvee. This adorable pink drink is topped with chocolate Minnie ears to give the perfect sweet finish.
4. Mickey Ears Ice Cream
You can find these refreshing summer treats all throughout the park, especially during summer months. Your only dilemma: do you choose the classic ice cream with chocolate fudge topping or the ice cream sandwich? Decisions, decisions.
5. Mickey Inspired Beignets
These New Orleans inspired Disney desserts can be found at The Mint Julep Bar in The New Orleans Square at Disneyland. They’ll have you singing jazz and pretending you’re in the heart of NOLA, but with a Disney twist.
6. Troll Horn
Located in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase at Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, these Troll Horns are loaded with fluffy and sweet cream filling and surrounded by a flakey buttery crust—a perfect dessert for those who don’t love the ‘too-sweet’ offerings.
7. Mickey Ear Macarons
You can find these French-inspired Disney desserts at The Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe in Disneyland. While not featuring Mickey ears, if you’re visiting the Florida parks and still want your macaron fix, you can also find macaron ice cream sandwiches at Disney’s Epcot in the French Pavilion at the World’s Showcase.
8. Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake
What screams childhood more than PB&J? At the 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios you can turn your favorite sandwich into a delicious dessert. Best of all, the jelly is everyone’s favorite, grape!
Paw Print Brownie
Located in Africa’s Harambe Village in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park is everyone’s favorite treat, the paw print brownie at Kusafiri Bakery. Think if the best parts of a brownie and a cupcake became one dessert, a delicious layer of brownie underneath a generous layer of buttercream frosting. Yum!
10. Peanut Butter and Candied Bacon Pie
How much does one have to love bacon to put it into their dessert? Well Disney apparently is crazy about their bacon, because they put it in their iconic peanut butter pie. At Disney’s Boardwalk Bakery, you can express your true-love of bacon, by munching on this delicious treat.
