No place on Earth does the holidays quite like Disney World. With over-the-top festive decor and merry entertainment, the theme park resort turns into a winter wonderland each November, and no holiday trip to the parks is complete without a delightful seasonal treat. Lucky for parkgoers, Disney World has plenty of holiday eats to choose from this year — and as someone who has tried nearly every treat currently available, I can say with confidence that they’re well worth trying.
At Magic Kingdom, guests will find a range of delightful bites, ranging from classic Christmas favorites to imaginative seasonal snacks. Main Street Bakery offers the perfectly Instagrammable Twice Upon a Cupcake, which has a hidden red velvet Mickey inside, and a giant green-and-red-striped Mickey cinnamon roll.
At Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, the Let It Snow Taco has salted caramel and spiced chocolate mousse inside a winter wonderland-inspired sugar cookie taco shell. Orange Bird takes dessert form at Sunshine Tree Terrace, where you can find a light and airy orange-scented white chocolate mousse with orange curd topped with Orange Bird wearing a Santa hat.
Aloha Isle, the stand known for serving the iconic Dole Whip, is offering a Pistachio Chai Tea Float, which combines pistachio soft serve, chai tea, and a red velvet cake pop shaped like an ornament for a cool holiday dessert perfect for the warm Florida winter.
There are even more seasonal treats at Magic Kingdom, including Chip and Dale Christmas Churros and a Yuletide Wishes cake, but there’s plenty to see and eat at the other theme parks, too.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there’s a Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Mickey’s Holiday Cookie, a red velvet Holiday Whoopie Pie, and Olaf’s Snow Flurry, a yellow cupcake topped with vanilla buttercream and an Olaf decoration.
Meanwhile, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has some especially adorable treats, including a Santa Mickey Mousse — a white chocolate peppermint mousse dome with Mickey ears set atop a brownie — and a White-chocolate Peppermint Cream Cheese Mousse, a futuristic-looking pastry available at Satu’li Canteen.
At this park, you’ll also find the Menagerie Cupcake, a gingerbread cupcake with cream cheese frosting, and a Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwich, a fun fall treat with vanilla ice cream between pumpkin cookies.
Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Holidays starts later this month on Nov. 27, so we don’t know everything that will hit the stands located throughout World Showcase just yet, but a Disney Parks Blog post unveiled two seasonal treats: a Spiked Frozen Apple Pie made with Ole Smoky Apple Pie Moonshine, and a Maple Bûche de Noël, a log cake made with maple mousse, cranberry, and gingerbread cake.
All these treats listed are available at specific locations throughout the park on certain dates, so check the Disney Parks Blog post for more details.
