The hardest part of dining at Disney is saving room for dessert and the goal of this Ultimate Disney Dessert Checklist is to help you prioritize.

10. The Clock Strikes Twelve at Cinderella’s Royal Table

The signature Clock Strikes Twelve dessert at Cinderella’s Royal Table is a white chocolate mousse dome covered in dark chocolate ganache. Designed to resemble the famous clock from the movie, the clock numbers are drawn on the plate with chocolate and an tuile cookie is shaped to form the arms of the clock. It’s a perfect way to end a special meal.

9. Tiramisú at Tony’s Town Square

There are many different tiramisu style desserts to be found at Walt Disney World but the version at Tony’s Town Square is one of the best. AhlĂşa espresso-soaked lady fingers with whipped mascarpone topped with mocha Cream… this is a dessert that’s both indulgent and satisfying.

8. The “Grey Stuff” at Be Our Guest

If you’re eating at Be Our Guest, try the Grey Stuff, it’s delicious! It may not look appealing but you’re sure to love the chocolate spongecake topped with Lumiere’s special grey stuff — a fluffy cookies and cream flavored chocolate mousse.

7. Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake at Liberty Tree Tavern

Gooey butter cake, bittersweet chocolate chips, caramel sauce, and vanilla ice cream come together to create one of the best desserts in all of Walt Disney World. The cake is gooey on the inside, crispy on the outside, and completely delicious.

6. Pineapple Dole Whip at Aloha Isle

Perhaps the most famous Disney dessert, Pineapple Dole Whip is a must-have when you visit the Magic Kingdom. Try it plain, mixed with vanilla, or in a float with pineapple juice.

4. Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow

While this treat makes a perfect snack or dessert, some Disney dessert lovers have even been known to enjoy this for lunch! A warm waffle is smothered with Nutella and topped with fresh strawberries and banana slices. This is a unique treat and a great value given the large size that can easily be split between several people.

3. Citrus Swirl at Sunshine Tree Terrace

When in Florida, it’s always a good idea to try some of the state’s famous citrus and the Citrus Swirl at Sunshine Tree Terrace is a one of the best ways to do so. A vintage Disney snack, the Citrus Swirl consists of vanilla soft serve swirled with frozen orange juice to create a treat that is sweet, tart, and refreshing.

2. Cinnamon Rolls at Gaston’s Tavern

The famous cinnamon rolls from Main Street Bakery can now be found at Gaston’s Tavern. These are extra-large, served warm, and covered with a maple-scented frosting and they go perfectly with a hot cup of coffee.

1. Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party

Enjoy decadent desserts while watching the amazing fireworks display over Cinderella Castle. Desserts include chocolate-dipped strawberries, Disney-themed cupcakes, chocolate mousse, ice cream, and signature hot chocolates, coffees, and lemonades.
