When you think of Walt Disney World, you probably don’t think of healthy eating. After all, there are countless delectable treats throughout the parks and resorts to tempt anyone with a sweet tooth! Well, the good news is that there are also sugar-free no-sugar-added options available throughout Disney property for diabetics or those trying to minimize sugar, and they’re clearly marked on menus and at buffets. (Keep in mind that sometimes, this means there is no refined sugar, but there may be other sweeteners, and carbohydrates, so always check to see if a dessert works within your particular dietary restrictions.) Here are a few of our favorites!
8. Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
Who doesn’t love ice cream, especially on a sweltering Florida afternoon? Head to Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, USA, in the Magic Kingdom to get your fill. You’ll find no sugar added butter pecan, no sugar added raspberry sorbet, and fat-free chocolate and vanilla swirl flavors. Plus, you can opt for a bowl instead of a cone, making your ice cream treat even healthier!
7. Lemon-Raspberry Cream Puff
We admit it: we have a serious infatuation with Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom! There’s nothing we don’t love about this popular restaurant, including its no sugar added desert, which also happens to be gluten-free: the Lemon-Raspberry Cream Puff. It’s full of delicious lemony custard goodness, and it’s on the lunch and dinner menu, giving you more opportunities to try it!
6. Sugar-Free Chocolate and Sweet and Sour Candy
We love all the treats at Goofy’s Candy Company, in the Marketplace at Disney Springs. There’s a seemingly endless variety of all things sweet, and thankfully for diabetics, there are some sugar-free options, too. Try a box of assorted Sugar-Free Chocolates, or Sugar-Free Sweet and Sour Candy.

5. Creamy Lemon Cheesecake
If you’re staying on site or are resort-hopping, there are some lovely reduced sugar desserts at various Walt Disney World resorts. We’ve had luck at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, at Olivia’s Cafe. The No Sugar Added Creamy Lemon Cheesecake with Seasonal Fruit is a great option for those wishing to limit their sugar intake, but still looking for a sweet, zesty conclusion to their meal.
4. Red Velvet Cupcake
Sprinkles, in Disney Springs, offers vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free options, and this is the place to be for anyone with a sweet tooth! We’re huge fans of the Sugar-Free Red Velvet Cupcake. But don’t limit yourself! We’ve never met a cupcake here that we didn’t like!
3. Panna “Carpa”
Flying Fish Restaurant, on Disney’s Boardwalk, is in a perfect waterside setting. It also has a fantastic dessert option for dinner – and it has no sugar added! The Panna “Carpa” is a buttermilk panna cotta, complete with strawberry-lime consommé and basil sugar. It’s a whole lot of amazing in one dessert!
We’ve come across no sugar added brownies at various locations throughout Walt Disney World theme parks and resorts. We’ve found them at Animal Kingdom’s Restaurantosaurus, Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland Terrace, and most recently, we’ve enjoyed them at Electric Umbrella, a quick service restaurant in Epcot. Wherever you happen to find these little chocolate treats, we’d highly recommend them for any chocolate lovers wishing to limit their sugar intake!
1. Chocolate Chip Cookies
We haven’t had a chance to try them yet, but Minnie’s Bake Shop now sells gluten free and sugar free cookies, in family-size packages, and they can be found at several locations throughout the parks and resorts. We’re looking forward to trying these yummy-looking chocolate chip cookies next time we’re in Walt Disney World!
