Top 10 Sweet Treats at Walt Disney World
There is no shortage of ways to treat your sweet tooth at Walt Disney World, and I think I probably gained 10 lbs. just thinking about all of the delicious goodies to write this article. The good news for your wallet is that many of these are available on the Disney Dining Plan as snacks, which translates to bad news for your waistline. It was tough to narrow it down, but here is my top 10 list of sweet treats:
10. Brownie Crème Sandwich, Earl of Sandwich
Oh my goodness, the yumminess that this is. Earl of Sandwich is one of my favorite quick meals anyway, but topping it off with one of these brownies is literally the icing on the cake. Picture two thick round brownies with vanilla, chocolate or peanut butter crème in between them – fantastic!
9. Zebra Domes, Animal Kingdom Lodge
These cute little treats that feature chocolate stripes on a white top (hence the zebra name) are found at the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s buffet restaurant, Boma, along with its food court, The Mara. A visit to the Lodge to view the animals would be a great excuse to step into The Mara to pick up a box of these coffee & Kahlua flavored treats to take with you.
8. No Way Jose, Beaches & Cream
I’m a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate, and this decadent ice cream treat at Beaches and Cream hits the spot. The huge dish is filled with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, peanut butter and hot fudge sauces and topped with whipped cream and chocolate and peanut butter chips. And it is filled so full that it overflows on all sides. Get a wheelbarrow and roll me out! If this didn’t fill you up ask for the Kitchen Sink.
7. Strawberry Shortcake, Sunshine Seasons
There are many locations to enjoy Strawberry Shortcake at Walt Disney World (see this article: http://www.disneydining.com/strawberry-shortcake-showdown/), but Sunshine Season’s version is the easiest to access for just a sweet treat. This layered version of strawberry shortcake is a refreshing dessert that feels a bit lighter than a lot of other options. And it has fruit, so it is healthy, right?
6. School Bread, Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, Norway
This traditional Norwegian treat is rich and delicious (they should’ve featured some school bread on the dessert spread at Elsa’s Coronation in Frozen). The closest thing I can use to describe it is a cream filled doughnut. The Norway version has vanilla custard and coconut. If that is too much for you, you can always try one of the other baked goods at Kringla, like the Lefse (very thin potato based bread rolled with butter, cinnamon and sugar).
5. Carrot Cake Cookie, The Writer’s Stop, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
I love carrot cake, and this treat is over the top. It is really a cake sandwich with two round pieces of carrot cake enveloping the best part of a carrot cake cookie: the cream cheese frosting. Mmmmm. And again, we have vegetables involved here, it must be good for you (remember—eat your carrots to improve your eyesight).

4. The Mickey Bar, Everywhere
The iconic vanilla ice cream shaped as a Mickey Head and covered in chocolate. Simple, classic, good.
3. Anything from Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, France
Just as I gained 10 lbs. writing this article, I gain 15 walking into this quick service location. Behind those glass cases are any number of delicious, rich and French sweets. Éclairs, Mousse, Napoleons, Crème Brulee, and more beckon my name. And each one is fresh and delicious—it makes it easy to come back and get a new treat each time you pass by.
2. Cupcakes, Everywhere
Cupcakes are all of the rage these days, and Walt Disney World is no exception. They can be found throughout the parks and resorts, and most places have one or two specialty cupcakes in addition to the generic vanilla and chocolate versions. My advice is to skip the basics and try one of the fancy ones, and bring a friend so you can split the cupcake and try a couple of different flavors.
1. The Dole Whip, Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom
You saw this one coming right? This pineapple flavored soft serve is a fan favorite (and if you’ve seen any of the recent photos of the Aloha Isle lines posted on Facebook you know exactly how popular it is). You can get it “plain” or served as a float with pineapple juice. At certain times of the year you can get a Dole Whip served with rum in Epcot (like right now at the Pineapple Promenade at the Flower and Garden Festival). Based on my research, I’m not sure you can say that you visited Walt Disney World if you didn’t have a Dole Whip at least once on your vacation.
Well, there you have it after much mental debate on my part, my top 10 sweets at Walt Disney World. What is your favorite sweet treat?
