Timon and Pumbaa’s “Slimy Yet Satisfying” Ice Cream Parfaits

Who’s ready for a “slimy yet satisfying” ice cream treat?! You may remember the scene in The Lion King when Timon and Pumbaa encourage Simba to try eating bugs and worms. Simba slurps up a worm and says, “slimy yet satisfying” (ewwww!). took this moment to get inspired and worked up some especially unique ice cream parfaits. No worries however… these worms are NOT the same kind Simba tried! Enjoy this “slimy yet satisfying” treat!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
