With so many delicious and diverse choices to pick from, dining at a Walt Disney World resort is an exciting part of any trip. Not only do you get to enjoy a great meal, you can explore a new resort and all it has to offer. If you’re dining at your own resort, it’s so relaxing to enjoy a meal after a busy day. The Walt Disney World resort restaurants offer top-notch menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, ranging from lively buffets to quiet and elegant eateries. Dessert is equally as important as the meal, in my opinion, and the options in this category are just as delectable. So, find your sweet tooth and check out my favorite desserts at Disney resorts!
1. Key Lime Torte (Olivia’s Café)
Cruise on over to Disney’s Old Key West Resort, grab a chair at the charming Olivia’s Café, and order a slice of heaven in the shape of the Key Lime Torte. Served with mango and raspberry sauce, this dessert is a sweet and tangy mix that your taste buds will love.
2. Zebra Dome (Boma-Flavors of Africa)
After a wild day of adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, trek over Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and enjoy Boma, an African marketplace buffet. Find room on your plate for a zebra dome or two, a decadent and addictive concoction of espresso, Kahlua, and cream.
3. Bread Pudding (‘Ohana)
Located in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, ‘Ohana is a fan favorite, with meals served family style. Making room for the famous ‘Ohana dessert is a definite must-do. The scrumptious ending to the meal arrives in the form of Bread Pudding à la mode, served with caramel sauce and bananas.
4. Chocolate Fondue (Grand Floridian Café)
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is home to the lovely Grand Floridian Café, a casual eatery that’s perfect for a special occasion or just for a great meal. The pick of the dessert menu is the chocolate fondue, a fun treat served with fruit, marshmallows, and brownie bites to dunk in the chocolatey goodness.
5. Dole Whip Float
The infamous Dole Whip treat has always been available in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom, but lovers of this not-to-miss dessert can pick one up at the Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and also at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Whether you want your pineapple fix as soft serve in a dish or served with sweet pineapple juice as a float, both can’t be beat!
6. Mason Jar Cheesecake (Whispering Canyon Café)
A terrific place to enjoy comfort food in a lively atmosphere is the Whispering Canyon Café, located in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The menu offers fan favorites like ribs, chicken, and beef brisket, while cast members add plenty of entertainment to the meal. Don’t pass up the mason jar cheesecake, a fun way to enjoy this classic creamy dessert.
7. Specialty Cupcakes (Contempo Café)
Cupcakes are perfect all by themselves, but add a dose of Disney magic to them and you’ve got a wonderful dessert. Specialty cupcakes vary on design depending on current events or trends at Walt Disney World. Some of the very best cupcakes can be found in the Contempo Café in Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
8. Chocolate and Peanut Butter (Turf Club)
A hidden gem tucked away in Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, the Turf Club offers a delicious American menu with beautiful views of the resort’s grounds and the adjacent golf course. Peanut butter fans will love the Chocolate and Peanut Butter, a rich butter chocolate mousse complemented with peanut butter cream.
9. The Kitchen Sink (Beaches and Cream Soda Shop)
A visit to Disney’s Beach Club Resort isn’t complete without a stop at Beaches and Cream for the Kitchen Sink. Perfect for sharing with three of your friends, this popular colossal dessert consists of five heaping scoops of ice cream smothering in every topping available. Grab a spoon and dig in!
10. Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
No list of Disney desserts would be complete without mentioning the iconic Mickey Bar. Not only can guests enjoy this classic treat in all four Disney parks, you can also pick one of these up at the “grab-and-go’ market areas at all of the resorts. Everyone knows how perfectly the creamy vanilla ice cream blends with the smooth chocolate shell, so grab one after lunch, dinner, or anytime you need a sweet indulgence.
