So as a self-described foodie and Disney addict, I feel it is my duty to share what I consider some of the BEST food in Walt Disney World!
Today I will share what I think are the BEST desserts….
Lets start with Dole Whips which can be found in Aloha Isle located inside the Magic Kingdom and at the Polynesian Resort’s Capt. Cook quick service restaurant. Dole Whips are a soft serve pineapple ice cream that is out of this world delicious. If you are a huge fan of pineapple like I am, then you should try the Dole Whip Floats which have pineapple juice in the bottom and the soft serve pineapple ice cream on the top. It is a very filling dessert, so make sure you have room for it before ordering or have someone else on hand to help you eat it. Doesn’t matter if you are visiting in the middle of summer when it is 100 degrees or in the winter for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – these are a must on each and every trip!
I am not a huge ice cream fan, in fact I usually don’t eat much of it unless I am in Disney. Which brings me to the next dessert on my list: Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars! This is a vanilla ice cream shaped bar that is dipped in Nestles Milk Chocolate. This should only be eaten while you have a moment to sit. Trust me on this one as I had to retrieve the shout stain stick from my backpack after trying to eat one of these and walk at the same time. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, these count as 1 Snack Credit.
Next on the list are Zebra Domes which can be located at the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Boma Restaurant or in the Mara quick service food market. At Boma they are part of the dessert buffet, but can be purchased separately at Maras. Boma is a wonderful restaurant and the dessert buffet does not disappoint, however you never want to miss out on the Zebra Domes.
Here is a description and photo I found online: “Zebra Domes consist of a thin layer of white cake, a dome of Amarula Liquer mousse, coated in a while chocolate ganache with a dark chocolate
Ganace drizzle.” I have seen several recipes online, but no one yet to admit that they have mastered the dome to perfection lol. Let me know if you try, I will volunteer to be your guinea pig.
And finally on my list are Chocolate Chip Cookies which can be found at any restaurant or any of the bakies around Walt Disney World!! They are my absolute favorite and I if any of my family are visiting the World while I am home, I will (not ashamed) ask them to bring me home a few!!! No pictures are needed, just use your imagination and think of these huge soft, chocolate chip cookies with just the right amount of gooey to make them chewey but not messy.
I have a trip coming up in a few months and plan on trying the Bread Pudding at O’Hanas located in the Polynesian Resort AND “The Grey Stuff” which is on the dessert menu at the new Be Our Guest restaurant located in the Beast’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom.
Upcoming food confessions to include the following: character dining, buffets, best quick service and of course the upcoming Food & Wine Festival. Until then, eat well and have a Magical Day!
