5 Reasons Why We Absolutely Love Walt Disney World Desserts

When you think of Walt Disney World, dessert is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. You might even have been tempted on past trips to skip dessert to save a few dollars and some calories. If you skip dessert, you’re missing out on some delicious creations. On your next trip, plan to order more than one dessert at a meal for your whole party to share. That way, you’ll have a chance to try several. Here are five things that you will love about Walt Disney World desserts.

5. Dessert Parties

Happily Ever After is a great way to end your day at the Magic Kingdom. If you want to make it even better, make a reservation for the Happily Ever After Dessert Party. With two different party options that vary on reserved seating and/or standing locations, you can’t go wrong with these parties! You’ll snack on incredible desserts and have some of the best views of the fireworks. Epcot offers Frozen Ever After Dessert Party for Epcot Forever. Hollywood Studios even offers Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party as well as a Fantasmic Dessert Party. Animal Kingdom is even getting in on the act with a Rivers of Light Dessert Party. Dessert parties are becoming very popular at Walt Disney World and for good reason. What is not to love? For one price you can enjoy all the desserts that you care to eat, drink delicious beverages, and watch the show in a preferred viewing area. A dessert party is a sweet way to end a fun day.

4. No Sugar Added Options

If you need to watch the amount of sugar that you consume, Walt Disney World will let you have your cake and eat it too, so to speak. There are no sugar added dessert options in many of the restaurants. It could be something simple like sorbet, or maybe you’d prefer Lemon Grass Cheesecake. If you limit your sugar for health reasons, you still might want to ask a Cast Member, since some forms of sugar do occur naturally in many foods. Still, if you limit your sugar intake you will not have a problem finding end of your meal options at Walt Disney World.

3. Ice Cream

What would a trip to a theme park be without ice cream? Since Walt Disney World is more than just a theme park, the ice cream is more than just your run of the mill chocolate and vanilla soft serve. You can order decadent creations at Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop at Disney Springs. If you’re at the Magic Kingdom, stop by Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and step back in time as you step through the doors. You can try ice cream from different countries at Epcot. For the ultimate ice cream treat, head to Beaches & Cream Soda Shop and order The Kitchen Sink. Just make sure that you don’t try it alone. There is more to ice cream at Walt Disney World than just sundaes. You can find Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars and similar treats almost everywhere on Disney property. Don’t forget Dole Whip, hand scooped, and ice cream sandwiches on fresh baked cookies. If you’re in the mood for the already mentioned chocolate and vanilla soft serve, you can find that as well. Ice cream lovers will find a lot to be happy about at Walt Disney World.

2. Cupcakes

There are plenty of delicious baked goods found at Walt Disney World, but there is something special about the cupcakes. It is almost as if there is a behind the scenes contest between the pastry chefs to see who can come up with the most incredible creation. Red Velvet Cupcakes, Guava Cream Cheese Cupcakes, Butterfinger Cupcakes, and Cotton Top Tamarin Cupcakes are just a few of your choices. If you’re there during a special event or the holidays, you’ll find even more cupcakes. There are so many to choose from that each member of your party could try a different cupcake each day of your vacation and you won’t come close to trying all the varieties.

1. International Creations

One nice thing about Walt Disney World is that you don’t have to settle for the same thing at each meal. The same is true about desserts. You can enjoy Maple Creme Brulee for dessert one night and then try baklava the next. Not only can you have desserts from around the world, you can enjoy creations inspired by world famous chefs; there are choices such as Wolfgang’s Apple Strudel or Miso Honeycake. With 11 countries represented at Epcot, and more places depicted at the resort hotels and Disney Springs, you can try many different international desserts. One word of advice if you love dessert; make a dinner reservation at ‘Ohana if you can. The ‘Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode with Bananas-Caramel Sauce might be the best dessert that you ever have.

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.
