Best Disney World Ice Cream Treats
While we know there are plenty of frozen treats to choose from at Disney World, these are the top ones we think you should indulge in:
1. Dole Whip (V/ GF)
No trip to Disney World is complete without trying the iconic Dole Whip.
This refreshing soft-serve pineapple ice cream has been a fan favorite since its debut in 1984.
What sets this frozen treat at Disney apart from others is that the pineapple version is completely dairy-free! So if you have lactose intolerance, you can enjoy this Disney World ice cream!
You can find Dole Whips served at several locations including Aloha Isle in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom, Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Tamu Tamu Refreshments at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
You can also try different variations of Dole Whip, such as the pineapple float or swirl with vanilla soft serve.
2. Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar
What could be better than a delicious ice cream bar in the shape of everyone’s favorite mouse?
The Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar is a classic treat that can be found at various ice cream carts throughout all four Disney World theme parks.
It is vanilla ice cream covered in a thick layer of chocolate – simple but a staple ice cream treat for Disney fans.
Just make sure to grab some napkins because this one can be messy!
3. Kitchen Sink Sundae
If you are looking for an over-the-top ice cream experience, then the Kitchen Sink Sundae at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom is a must-try.
This massive sundae comes in a literal kitchen sink and is filled with 8 scoops of ice cream, various toppings, and an entire can of whipped cream.
It is perfect for sharing with friends & family or indulging in as a solo treat & with a price tag of $18.99 you might want to split the bill as well!
This sundae can also be found at Beaches and Cream at Beach Club Resort.
There is a similar version called the Sand Pail Ice Cream Sundae at Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon.
It features vanilla and chocolate soft-serve ice cream topped with sprinkles, waffle cone pieces, rainbow cake bits, hot fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and a cherry layered in a Sand Pail Bucket.
4. Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich (V & GF Options Available)
For a unique twist on a classic treat, head to L’Artisan des Glaces in the France pavilion at Epcot and try the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich.
L’Artisan is actually our favorite place to get ice cream in EPCOT because it is so decadent.
You can choose from 10 different flavors of house-made ice cream or sorbet between two delicate macarons.
The maracon sandwich is the perfect combination of creamy and crunchy, and a great option for those looking for a gluten-free dessert.
5. PB&J Milkshake
Who doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
At Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios they take it to the next level with the PB&J Milkshake.
This indulgent shake is made with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, and jelly – a childhood favorite in drink form.
