Top 10 Chocolate Treats at Walt Disney World

Chocolate can make anyone’s day a little bit brighter. It is decadent, indulgent, and delicious at the same time. Fortunately, this is something that is well understood by Disney, and there is plenty of chocolate to be found. Here are ten of our favorite chocolate treats that you’ll be able to try while at Walt Disney World. Some are mostly chocolate, while with others the chocolate enhances the flavor. If you have a favorite chocolate creation that you must indulge in whenever you head to Central Florida, feel free to share in the comments below.

10. Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Sleepy Hollow, Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom

Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is one treat that you won’t want to pass on. It all starts with a waffle. That is then covered with a delightful chocolate hazelnut spread (think Nutella) and topped with banana slices, strawberries, and blueberries. The best part of all is that it’s not too difficult to convince yourself that the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is a meal. After all, it does have the word “sandwich” in its name. If you need more to satisfy your chocolate craving, Sleepy Hollow also sells Chocolate-Chunk Cookies.

9. Brownie Cupcake With Chocolate Frosting

Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC, The Landing, Disney Springs

There are plenty of incredible chocolate cupcakes to be found at Walt Disney World. The brownie cupcake at Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC gets special mention here because of what it doesn’t have. The items sold in the bakery are gluten-free, kosher, and vegan. You won’t think that anything is missing. The Brownie Cupcake is dense and has small chocolate chips throughout. The chocolate frosting will melt in your mouth. Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC isn’t just for people who are looking to avoid certain ingredients. It’s for anyone with a sweet tooth.

8. Midnight Reverie

Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop, Marketplace, Disney Springs

Of course a name like Ghirardelli that is synonymous with rich chocolate has to be on this list! First go to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop and try a free sample. You might want to make a purchase as well. Then head next door to the Ghirardelli Ice Cream Shop. Most of the selections feature chocolate in one form or another. If you love dark chocolate, the Midnight Reverie Sundae is what you’ll want to order. It’s made of chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate hot fudge, semi-sweet chips, and an Intense Dark Twilight Delight 72% Chocolate. Of course there’s also whipped cream on the top. Midnight Reverie will have you dreaming of dark chocolate for months to come.

7. Chocolate Macaron

L’Artisan des Glaces, World Showcase, Epcot

You can find ice cream sandwiches in plenty of places at Walt Disney World. What makes the offering at L’Artisan des Glaces different is the cookie. Instead of using a chocolate chip cookie, chocolate ice cream is placed between two chocolate macarons. The ice cream at L’Artisan des Glaces is made the French way, which has a different consistency than American ice cream. You’ll be thinking about ordering another Chocolate Macaron before you finish your first one, they’re that good.

6. Darth Vader Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake

Various Locations, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Darth Vader Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes were introduced several years ago when Disney had Star Wars Weekends, and they were instantly a hit. When Star Wars Weekends were canceled many people worried that the cupcakes would be permanently gone, but luckily that’s not the case. Darth Vader Cupcakes are now sold in several different locations across Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s a chocolate cupcake topped with a lot of peanut butter frosting. There are dark chocolate curls on top, and an edible image of the Sith Lord himself. Some Star Wars fans say “Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies,” but it’s the Darth Vader Cupcakes that will get people to turn.

Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars may not be the most decadent chocolate treat at Walt Disney World, but they are certainly one of the most popular.

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.
