5 Reasons We Absolutely Love Walt Disney World Desserts

My boys and I have a bit of a big time sweet tooth. Our favorite sweet treats are of course on Disney property! We try to replicate some of them at home, but they never seem to be quite as good as the original! Here are 5 reasons why we absolutely love Walt Disney World desserts:


5. Unique to Walt Disney World

The culinary chefs and artists at Disney World work hard to create dessert masterpieces that are unique, delicious and impressive. The dessert is the last impression that you have of your meal, or are the go to treat when you are enjoying your time in the parks, so it is important that they are unique and leave you able to build strong connections to the treats so they are on your must-have list every time that you are on property. Disney has mastered the art of providing experiences that are unique and desired, and this definitely carries over to their culinary masterpieces.

4. Generous portions

Treats at Disney may not be the cheapest, but they make up for it in quality in size. There haven’t been many desserts or treats that I have had that I have been able to finish on my own. The serving sizes are plentiful and definitely leave you satisfied. Keep this in mind if you are on a budget and think that you might want to share with others, so that you still get a sweet indulgence without wasting or leaving any behind.

3. Included in dining plans

Dessert is included in dining plans! This is a great way to sample different desserts and even snacks (using snack entitlements) across Walt Disney World. You may not want to spend the money on dessert or indulge when you are paying for it individually, but having it included in the dining plan guarantees that you will get to try and enjoy these delicious treats.

2. They incorporate Disney components

Many of the desserts include Mickey ears or Mickey heads, or incorporate other characters or details from the theme of a particular restaurant. It seems like everything tastes better when it has Mickey ears. It makes the desserts more fun and part of the vacation experience. It also makes them desserts that you can’t get back home, which make them even more magical!


1. Delicious and decadent

I probably should have lead with this one! They are absolutely delicious! If you haven’t experienced the bread pudding dessert at Ohana, you haven’t lived! There are many other desserts this delicious all over the property. You don’t want to miss these treats! I highly recommend that you plan to do a little bit of indulging on your trip and don’t get caught up in the calories of these treats. You will be doing lots of walking and deserve to get to sample these sweet treats!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
