From the photos I see on Instagram, I think there are some people who visit Walt Disney World just to eat treats! And there is certainly a great selection of yummy options to choose from—so many that sometimes it is hard to narrow down your list. Here is our list of 11 favorites to help you focus your search for tasty treats:
11. The Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
I’m not talking about the Mickey Shaped Ice Cream sandwich that you find at the carts throughout the parks (although those are pretty good), this is a homemade cookie with your choice of ice cream flavor in the middle as an actual ice cream cookie . . . it is fresh and delicious. You can find this at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street in Magic Kingdom among other places.
10. Ample Hills
Continuing the Ice Cream theme, a trip to Walt Disney World is not complete for my family without a stop at Ample Hills on the Boardwalk for some ice cream. You can’t go wrong with any of their custom flavors, but my top recommendation is the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake—you an even have that made into a sundae. If you can’t decide they offer an ice cream flight for sampling.
9. Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade Slushy
Found at Casey’s Corner on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, this refreshing frozen drink hits the spot. The blend of lemon and mint flavors that comes together in the Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade Slushy is a perfect combination. Not too sweet but not at all tart—it may be my new favorite frozen drink. And it is served with a Mickey Straw which makes everything taste better.

8. Amorette’s Mickey Mousse
Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs is maybe the cutest bakery you will ever see. And aside from the décor, the desserts served inside are beautiful and delicious. No Disney fan’s vacation would be complete without picking up an adorable Mickey Mousse (chocolate chiffon cake, dark chocolate mousse and white chocolate mousse). It is sure to satisfy anyone’s chocolate craving and it is a dome shaped confection that looks like Mickey!
7. Lunch Box Tarts
Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the best thing to happen to quick service at the Studios since 1992. The menu is great and the location is adorable. If you are looking for a treat check out the Lunch Box Tarts, a homemade version of the pop tart or toaster strudel served all day on the dessert menu. The raspberry version features raspberry marmalade inside the pastry with a strawberry fondant coating and crispy pearls. The slightly more decadent Chocolate-Hazelnut option is a pastry stuffed with chocolate-hazelnut (a la Nutella) and coated with Maple fondant and candied bacon. The Chocolate-Hazelnut version is rich and sweet!
6. The Zebra Dome
You have to go on a bit of a safari to track down the Zebra Dome, but it will be worth it in the end. Found at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Boma buffet and in the grab-n-go section of The Mara quick service, the Zebra domes are coated in white chocolate with drizzled chocolate to make them look like zebra stripes. But the best part is what is inside the dome: Amarula Cream Liquor Mousse on top of a thin cake base—then that is where the white chocolate topping and chocolate drizzle come in. These are delicious and worth the trek.
5. The Quintessential Mickey Bar
Everything is better when it is shaped like Mickey right? One of my best friends swears by the Mickey Bar as the best treat on Disney property. The nice thing is that you can find these just about anywhere from the carts around the parks to the freezers in resort food courts. Creamy vanilla ice cream coated in a crunchy chocolate shell—these are tough to eat in the Florida sun, but so much fun!
I love a good s’more and they are even better when you’ve made them yourself. Most of the Walt Disney World resorts offer an evening campfire with the option to roast marshmallows and make s’mores. Something about that just feels like vacation to me. The most noteworthy of these is probably the Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long at Fort Wilderness Campground. You don’t have to be staying here to stop by and enjoy the singing, s’mores and movie under the stars.
3. Gaston’s Cinnamon Roll
Everyone knows that Gaston does everything big—and this includes the treats found in his Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland. One of my favorite mid-morning breaks after enjoying a first round of attractions in Magic Kingdom is to go back to Gaston’s Tavern and enjoy a Warm Cinnamon Roll (that is roughly the size of a barge) and a frozen LeFou’s Brew. It is a sugar overload for sure, but so tasty and hits the spot.
2. Pineapple Lumpia
Another newer treat to Walt Disney World, Pineapple Lumpia is found in the other worldly Pandora—The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. The Pongu Pongu refreshment stand is located just outside the shop in Pandora and next to the quick service Satu’li Canteen. There are several fun things offered here including the Pineapple Lumpia. The Lumpia is like a fried egg roll filled with pineapple and cream cheese . . . it is so good! But, I can’t stop at Pongu Pongu without also getting a Night Blossom frozen drink (layers of apple and desert pear limeade topped with passion fruit boba balls). It is beautiful like the surrounding environment and deliciously sweet.
1. The Dole Whip
Yes, you probably predicted it. The Dole Whip is #1 on our list because it is such a fan favorite and probably the first sweet treat people think of at Walt Disney World. You can find the Dole Whip in many locations now, and in many forms like the traditional soft serve, the float, served on a pineapple upside down cake, or served with rum. My personal favorite is the float version. Whatever your personal preference, you simply can’t visit Walt Disney World without a Dole Whip (and an Instagram photo to go with it).
