10 Favorite Ice Cream Treats at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World

Disney Springs is the perfect place to spend an off day, away from the parks. There’s shopping, entertainment, and lots of great food. Part of that incredible food is ice cream. There are several delicious frozen options at Disney Springs. Here are ten of the best.

10. Florida Snow Company Cart, Marketplace

While shaved ice isn’t technically ice cream, it’s just as refreshing on a hot day. At this stand you can take your pick of several flavors, or combine them if you’d prefer. You can add sour spray for something a little bit different. If you’d like your snow to resemble ice cream a little bit more, add sweetened condensed milk.

9. T-REX and Rainforest Cafe, Marketplace

While T-REX and Rainforest Cafe are two different restaurants with unique themes and menus, they both have signature ice cream treats for dessert. At T-REX it’s Chocolate Extinction, which is large enough for four. At Rainforest Cafe you can order Sparkling Volcano, which is meant for at least three people. Both desserts feature ice cream, chocolate cake or brownie, and toppings. No matter which place you dine at, you’ll want to save room for dessert.

8. Sprinkles, Town Center

What does a place that is famous for cupcakes know about ice cream? Plenty! At Sprinkles you can get single or double scoops in a cup or waffle cone. There are common flavors such as vanilla and coffee. There are also unique flavors, including Capn Crunch and Red Velvet. Sprinkles offers sundaes and milkshakes as well. You’ll enjoy the ice cream so much that you might forget to order a cupcake.

7. Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies, Marketplace and West Side

Smoothies are another frozen treat that aren’t really ice cream, but they are every bit as satisfying. At both locations of Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies you’ll find fun creations such as Tropical Sunset (orange juice, banana, strawberries, and yogurt) and Mango Tango (passion fruit juice, mango, papaya, pineapple, coconut cream, and yogurt). There are also some choices with a kick, including Frozen Shakin Jamaican. Whatever you order, watch out for the brain freeze.

6. MacGUFFINS, West Side

MacGUFFINS is the lounge that is located inside AMC Dine-In Theaters. It’s known as a great place to get a drink after a movie, but you can also satisfy your ice cream craving here. Try a Waffle Sundae, or maybe you’d prefer Cinnamon Apple Crumble. It’s a warm apple filled creation that is topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. It could end up being better than the movie was.

5. AristoCrepes, Marketplace

There are two words that you need to remember at AristoCrepes; Bubble Waffle. There are two varieties to choose from. Salted Caramel Bubble Waffle is filled with chocolate ice cream, caramel sauce, and more. Strawberry Bubble Waffle is filled with vanilla ice cream, strawberries, and whipped cream. Both are topped with flavored “pearls”. This is one treat that you will want to try the moment you see it.

4. Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC, The Landing

All of the items sold at Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC are gluten-free, vegan, and kosher, which makes it a popular spot for those who follow special diets. What many people do not realize is that the bakery also sells soft serve ice cream. They’ll top it with cookie crumbles or brownie bits if you’d like. They can also make milkshakes. Vegan ice cream at Erin McKenna’s might not be available all days, so be prepared to order another vegan treat if they don’t have it.

3. Haagen-Dazs Kiosk, West Side

With Haagen-Dazs you know what you are going to get; high quality ice cream in delicious flavors. The kiosk at Disney Springs is no exception. You can purchase cups, cones, sundaes, shakes, and other treats. Come up with your own sundae, or order one of their creations. You’ll enjoy every delectable bite.

2. Vivoli il Gelato, The Landing

There’s a popular gelato shop in Florence, Italy that has been family owned and operated for over 85 years. Fortunately, you do not have to fly to Italy to get a taste. The second location is found at Disney Springs. You will discover many different gelato flavors, some of which you may not have tried here in the United States. You can order your treat in a cone, cup, or a sundae. Gelato shakes are available as well.

1. Ghirardelli Soda Fountain, Marketplace

The iconic place to buy Ice Cream at Disney Springs is Ghirardelli Soda Fountain. You can smell the chocolate well before you are through the door! There are plenty of specialty sundaes that feature chocolate and other flavors. Treasure Island Warm Brownie Sundae, Lands End Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae, and Painted Ladies Mint Bliss  are just three of the many, many choices. You can create your own sundae if you would prefer, or you can order ice cream by the cup or cone. There are also shakes and floats. If you have any room left once you’ve finished your ice cream, head to the Chocolate Shop next door for a free chocolate square.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
