There’s nothing better than spending your vacation at the most magical place on earth—Walt Disney World—unless it’s eating dessert at the most magical place on earth! Even the strictest, most health-conscious Disney fan still splurges on dessert at least once or twice while visiting the parks. In fact, the desserts at Disney World are so creative, so beautifully presented and so yummy that Disney fans who never eat sweets become dessert-aholics, at least while they’re at Disney. And why not? You’re on vacation after all! But if you are going to give in and have dessert at Disney, you want to really enjoy it. And with the hundreds of sweets and desserts in the parks, how in the (Disney) world are you to decide which ones to try first? Start at Epcot. Because it is home to the World Showcase, Epcot is the perfect place to sample new desserts—and some of your old favorites. Here are 10 of the best.
10. English Trifle at Rose & Crown Dining Room, United Kingdom pavilion
If you’re someone who likes a little fruit with your dessert, get your taste buds ready! There are a million recipes for trifle. After all, trifle is a dessert that involves layering—lots and lots of layering of lots and lots of different ingredients. In the case of this delicious English Trifle at Rose & Crown, there are layers of juicy strawberries, vanilla custard, graham crackers and whipped cream. Grab your best friend, a big spoon and dive in.
9. Gelato at Gelati, Italy pavilion
Everyone loves ice cream, but have you had gelato? And what’s the big deal about gelato anyway—isn’t it just Italian ice cream? First, anything you savor at Disney World just tastes better—whether it’s gelato or filet mignon. Second, gelato is different from ice cream. It’s somewhat denser than ice cream because it is churned more slowly than ice cream is churned. And while ice cream is usually served frozen, gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature—around 15 degrees Fahrenheit. And no matter which flavor you choose to enjoy inside the Italy pavilion, you’re sure to love it! Enjoy yours in a cup or a cone at Gelati. Each option includes two scoops of gelato in your choice of flavors, and at just $6.50 per cup or cone, you can try all of them flavors!
8. Mousse au Chocolat at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, France pavilion
You’ve probably had mousse at one time or another, but mousse at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie is something special! Mousse au chocolat is simply French for “chocolate mousse,” but this dessert definitely didn’t come from a mix! Dark chocolate, cream and sugar are combined with other ingredients to make this very decadent, yet simple, dessert, which costs just under $5 at Disney. Try it when you visit Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie—a traditional French bakery serving up pastries and other goodies in the France pavilion at Epcot.

7. Churros at Cantina de San Angel, Mexico pavilion
I’ve never met a churro I didn’t like, so it makes sense that churros at Disney World are even better (and so is the caramel sauce)! You can find them at Cantina de San Angel in Mexico at Epcot. There’s enough to share—maybe—but at just $4.50 per serving, you can tell your buddies to get their own!
6. Citrus Bread Pudding at Coral Reef Restaurant, Future World
This delicious twist on bread pudding can be found in a fantastic restaurant full of beautiful fish and aquariums! It’s made with whiskey sauce, candied pecans and salted caramel gelato and runs around $8. If you like bread pudding, you’ll love Coral Reef’s version of it!
5. Maple Crème Brulee at Le Cellier Steakhouse, Canada pavilion
Canadians tend to like their maple, eh? If you visit one of the shops in the Canada pavilion, you will find maple lollipops, maple syrup and more. If you visit Le Cellier Steakhouse at Canada in Epcot, you’ll be able to enjoy crème brulee with maple. The tasty dessert costs around $9 and is delicious!
4. Bastilla at Restaurant Marrakesh, Morocco pavilion
This yummy dessert costs around $8 and is something to try that’s different from desserts you might be used to. Bastilla at Restaurant Marrakesh is a dessert made of crunchy layers of pastry, topped with vanilla cream. It’s then sprinkled with toasted almonds. What could be better?
3. Chocolat at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, France pavilion
This quick-service traditional French bakery doesn’t make anything that’s not delectable! It’s strange that this dessert is simply called, “Chocolat,” since it’s more than just chocolate! It’s actually a mini-pie filled with caramel crème and topped with mousse au chocolat, or chocolate mousse. It’s incredibly decadent and incredibly delicious, both of which make it a nice “vacation” dessert, and at only $4.50, you won’t have to share!
2. Marrakesh Delight at Restaurant Marrakesh, Morocco pavilion
This dessert can be found in the Morocco pavilion and incorporates fresh fruit, like the English Trifle. The Marrakesh Delight is a fruit salad served with mint ice cream, orange blossom water and toasted almonds. For about $6 you can enjoy this “delight”-ful dessert. It’s definitely something out of the ordinary, which makes it fun to try!
1. Nanaimo Cake at Le Cellier Steakhouse, Canada pavilion
Everyone loves cake and ice cream, right? But you won’t have to wait for your birthday to enjoy both when you visit Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada pavilion on the World Showcase. For about $11, you can try the Nanaimo Cake, which is a paradise of desserts all rolled into one. Nanaimo Cake is chocolate cake with peanut butter cremeux, raspberries and coconut ice cream. What’s not to like about that?
