The holidays have arrived at Walt Disney World Resort, and it is officially the merriest time of the year. Guests can visit all the Parks and see beautiful trees and decorations, and taste a ton of different and delicious treats made especially for this holiday season. While a large amount of the holiday food offerings can be found at EPCOT for its International Festival of Holidays, there are so many other great offerings that Guests can experience at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom Park.
The holidays at Walt Disney World officially started on November 12 and that’s when a majority of the new holiday food came out, except for Festival of Holidays sweets and treats, which did not begin until November 26. However, Disney has now revealed even more Christmas-themed eats that have come to the Resort, but not all of them will be available for the entirety of the holiday season.
Let’s take a look at Disney’s newest festive foods!
White Chocolate Peppermint Cream Cheese Mousse
The white chocolate peppermint cream cheese mousse will only be available from December 20 – 27 and can be found at Satu’li Canteen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. The white chocolate peppermint cream cheese mousse will come with a peppermint sauce and cookie crumbles. This dessert will be around for only one week, so make sure to grab yours while they last!
Black Forest Cheesecake
This mouthwatering new treat can be found at Pinocchio Village Haus in Fantasyland — right by “it’s a small world” — at Magic Kingdom Park and will be offered through January 9. This decadent dessert is made of chocolate cheesecake, topped with cherry compote, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a white chocolate coin that is inspired by the “it’s a small world” attraction. Guests can even enjoy this new offering while sitting in the Village Haus and watching the “it’s a small world” boats sail below them.
Right now, Blizzard Beach is the only water park that is open at Walt Disney World. However, it is possible that Disney is planning on opening Typhoon Lagoon this holiday season since they are indicating that the following desserts will be available at the water parks, and they are not specifying Blizzard Beach.
Orange Bird Holiday Citrus Swirl
This fun snack featuring Disney’s iconic Orange Bird will be available from December 12 until January 7 and can be found at the Warming Hut. The ice cream treat will be an orange and lime swirl served in a waffle cone. It will be adorned with a white chocolate Orange Bird wearing a Santa hat.
Merry Merry Melon
This new drink will also be available from December 12 until January 7 and will be found at Frostbite Freddie’s, but it will only be available for the 21 and over crowd. The drink will feature a melon and apple-flavored frozen rum cocktail and will be served with a red sugar rim and topped with a cherry.
Just like the Orange Bird Holiday Citrus Swirl and the Merry Merry Melon, the Peppermint Milkshake will be available for purchase from December 12 until January 7. This peppermint-flavored milkshake will be served with white chocolate whipped cream and holiday sprinkles. This refreshing minty drink can be found at Lottawatta Lodge.
