Disney World's Top Ten Desserts

 

#10: Dole Whip - Aloha Isle (Magic Kingdom)

Dole Whip - Aloha Isle (Magic Kingdom)

Lovers of pineapples and ice cream, unite! Once you're done organizing your official Pineapple/Ice Cream appreciation club, head over to Adventureland to experience the Dole Whip, a soft serve frozen treat. This dessert's unique flavor will delight your taste buds with a smooth and creamy pineapple taste, and its cool temperature will be a great way to beat the heat. Grabbing a Dole Whip and watching The Enchanted Tiki Room is a Disneyland and Disney World tradition. You can also find Dole Whip at Captain Cook's in the Polynesian.

#9: Funnel Cake - Sleepy Hollow Refreshments (Magic Kingdom)

Funnel Cake - Sleepy Hollow Refreshments (Magic Kingdom)

Funnel cake has always been an amusement park staple, and the funnel cake at Walt Disney World certainly does not disappoint. If you don't like funnel cake, Disney World's version isn't revelatory enough to change your mind. But then again, who doesn't like funnel cake? Tip: The Magic Kingdom seems to have the lowest price for funnel cake. Tip 2: Be sure to get extra napkins for the powdered sugar. You're going to need it. For more information, click here.


#8: Chocolate Ice Cream Cone - Crepes des Chefs de France (Epcot)

Chocolate Ice Cream Cone - Crepes des Chefs de France (Epcot)

As you'll see in the rest of this list, Epcot's France pavilion is probably the go-to place for anyone looking for a delicious treat while visiting Disney World. Not the least of which is the chocolate soft-serve ice cream cone found at Crepes des Chefs de France, the crepes cart across the walkway from Chefs de France. Bon Appetit!

#7: Chocolate Mousse Cake - Sunshine Seasons (Epcot)

Chocolate Mousse Cake - Sunshine Seasons (Epcot)

If you're searching for an otherworldly chocolate cake experience at Disney World, look no further than The Land pavilion in Epcot. At Sunshine Seasons, you'll find this not-too-rich-but-just-rich-enough chocolate mousse cake. This is Disney decadence at its best. For more information, click here.

#6: Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar - All Parks

Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar - All Parks

Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars are a Disney World classic. In my opinion, no trip to Disney World is complete without getting at least one Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar. Sure, it's just vanilla ice cream in a milk chocolate coating... But it's in the shape of Mickey Mouse Ears! They also score convenience points for being pretty ubiquitous: these ice cream bars are available in numerous ice cream carts around every park.

#5: Chocolate Cake - Main Street Bakery (Magic Kingdom)

Chocolate Cake - Main Street Bakery (Magic Kingdom)

Unless you really hate things that bring joy and happiness to people, the cake at the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom is an absolute must have. It's so delicious, it earns the top spot for a piece of cake on our Top Disney World Desserts list. For more information, click here.

#4: Strawberry Tart - Boulangerie Patisserie (France)

Strawberry Tart - Boulangerie Patisserie (France)

"Well, at least it has fruit in it." That was my justification for having yet another dessert on my last trip to Disney World. (As you can see from this list, just stepping foot inside Epcot makes it hard to resist some pretty delicious desserts). However, this Strawberry Tart was well worth it. It's a sweet, delicious, and refreshing dessert. For more information, click here.

#3: Creme Brulee - Boulangerie Patisserie (France)

Creme Brulee - Boulangerie Patisserie (France)

For delectable creme brulee on the go, be sure to make yet another stop to the France pavilion at Epcot. The Boulangerie Patisserie offers this rich and creamy treat that my family keeps raving about. For another great creme brulee experience at Disney World, check out nearby Les Chefs De France.

#2: Red Velvet Cupcake - Starring Rolls (Hollywood Studios)

Red Velvet Cupcake - Starring Rolls (Hollywood Studios)

I've always been a huge fan of red velvet cupcakes, and this one ranks up among the top cupcakes I've ever had anywhere. The icing is pretty much perfect. If you're in Disney's Hollywood Studios, go to Starring Rolls and pick up one of these bad boys For more information, click here.

#1: Caramel and Dark Chocolate - Karamell-Kuche (Germany)

Caramel and Dark Chocolate - Karamell-Kuche (Germany)

On my last trip to Disney World, my family decided to try a "Dessert Tour" of the World Showcase. This chocolate caramel from Germany's Karamell-Kuche (German for Caramel Kitchen) was far and away the winner for Best Dessert of the evening. This candy features rich and delicious dark chocolate, but the star of the show is obviously the caramel. It hits the perfect balance of chewy and creamy. While $4 might seem a bit steep for a single piece of candy, this caramel is rich enough to be satisfying, and amazingly scrumptious enough to be the number one dessert in Walt Disney World.
