There are only a few places on Earth that specialize in making everything magical, and they all begin with the word Disney. All spanning from two brothers with a dream in 1923, the Walt Disney Company has become known for creating top-of-the-line experiences for guests young and old. And part of that magic lies in the culinary arts. But what exactly are the best go-to treats sought out in the Disney universe? Read on and find out!
Here are our Top 10 Disney Park Treats.
10. Blue and Green Milk
These galaxy bevs are truly out of this world! You can find these delicious delicacies at the Milk Stand inside Star Wars Land at Hollywood Studios. Best of all? They’re dairy free, made with rice and coconut milks. Blue has hints of watermelon, dragon fruit, lime, and pineapple. Green is more of a citrus taste with levels of orange, passion fruit, and grapefruit. Our recommendation? Get one of each and share with a friend. Your taste buds will thank you for lightyears to come.
9. Mickey’s Kitchen Sink
This epic treat is a play on the Kitchen Sink Sundae from Disney World’s Beach Club Resort. Located at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and Plaza Restaurant on Main Street, USA, Mickey and his friends have created a masterpiece. You’ll enjoy two scoops of chocolate ice cream, your choice of fudge, peanut butter, caramel, or strawberry sauce, chocolate and peanut butter chips, whipped cream, and a cherry. Best of all? It comes in a miniature kitchen sink looking like Mickey’s pants for you to keep.
8. Cheshire Cat Tail
Formerly located at the Cheshire Cafe in Magic Kingdom, this neon treat can now be found at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. This flaky pastry is filled with cream and decorated with chocolate chips and colorful frosting. And there’s no denying the similarity between the feline from where it got its name. No question, this is a treat you can’t miss. Make sure to grab extra napkins though, because it can get kind of messy in the best possible way.
7. Candy Apples
There’s no need for an explanation here. A juicy apple dipped in sweet caramel, covered in delicious chocolate, and decorated like one of your favorite characters. While it’s true, the recipe isn’t anything new, sometimes a classic is all you really need. Candy apples can be found all over the place, including Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney Springs and the Main Street Confectionary. Other options include Big Top Souvenirs at the Circus in Magic Kingdom and Sweet Spells on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios.
6. PBJ Milkshake
This sweet treat takes a spin on an American classic. Located at the 50s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this PB&J milkshake is sure to bring out your inner child. And why wouldn’t it? With a basic recipe of sweet vanilla ice cream, delicious peanut butter, grape jelly, and cold milk it’s a combination made for success. But keep your glass close, because others are sure to sneak a sip if you don’t watch out!
5. Grey Stuff
It turns out that yes, it really is delicious! Although it’s really more of a chocolate cookie crumble mousse. At Disney World it covers a chocolate cake, and at Disneyland the center is red velvet. But we’re not complaining. This delicacy can be found at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom. And yes, it’s totally worth the hype. Trust us, we asked the dishes.
4. Turkey Leg
For the meat eater in your group, we present the classic turkey leg. And don’t let size alone impress you. Each leg weighs a whopping 1.5 pounds! Suffice to say, it’s more than enough to share. And while we won’t get into calorie count, we will say this: the flavor is worth it. The fact that Disney sells 1.6 million a year is proof enough. Turkey legs can be found at various carts in Frontierland of Magic Kingdom and Fife & Drum at American Adventure in Epcot.
3. Mickey Waffles
We won’t even get in to where you can find these delicious Disney treats, because the list is endless! But there’s a reason for the availability: these waffles are some of the best you’ll find. Light and fluffy, sweet and darn near perfection. It’s impossible to find a flaw here other than the fact that they don’t last forever. Whether you top yours with classic maple syrup or go for something a little more daring, your taste buds will thank you.
2. Mickey Ice Cream Bar
Another classic we couldn’t forget, the Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Rich vanilla covered in decadent chocolate, shaped like our favorite mouse. We have zero complaints. Enjoy it in the summer months to cool down or during the winter because, honestly, why not? There’s never a bad time to indulge. This classic frozen staple can be found at ice cream carts around each of the four parks.
1. Dole Whip
We had to save the best for last. And even better? the Dole Whip is actually a pretty healthy choice at Disney. The three primary ingredients are unsurprisingly vanilla ice cream, pineapple juice, and chunks of pineapple. It’s available to get with just the pineapple ice cream or with juice, and they actually now have different flavors at certain areas of the parks. Make sure to check out them all at the Aloha Isle and Sunshine Seasons both in Magic Kingdom and the Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian Resort.
