The Very Merry Minnie Mouse Cupcake will be available from June 23-26, 2022, at Gasparilla’s Island Grill at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The cupcake is a favorite of Disney’s pastry team, featuring chocolate cake filled with cookies and cream mousse and topped with ganache-dipped buttercream, cookie “ears” and a holiday bow.

Of course, this cupcake is just a tiny sample of what Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort offers Guests during the holiday season. Each winter, the lobby comes alive with Disney’s most impressive gingerbread display, featuring a life-sized house that sells some of these delicious sweets.

It wouldn’t be a holiday celebration without something warm to sip on (or iced, since it is summer right now!) and Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company in Disney Springs has us covered. The Disney Springs location will be serving up a Peppermint Mocha and a White Chocolate Gingerbread Latte, two very popular winter favorites, from June 23-26, 2022. Both drinks can be served hot or iced, and Guests ages 21 and over can even add a shot to theirs.

More holiday announcements for this winter at Walt Disney World will be coming up later this week. We can’t wait to share more updates for this holiday season and will be back with additional updates as we have them here on DisneyTips.
