If someone were to ask me what my favorite thing about going to Walt Disney World is, I would have to say it’s the desserts! There are so many delicious treats to choose from, it’s hard to pick a favorite. So today, I’m ranking my top desserts at Magic Kingdom. Keep reading for all the details!
And remember, calories do not count when we are at the most magical place on Earth!
Let’s start from the best to the absolute best, which means #1 is the last one.
Pistachio Creme Brûlée – Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
This is one of my favorite desserts on the property, and it’s exclusive to Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. The Pistachio Creme Brûlée features a creamy pistachio custard topped with a layer of crunchy caramelized sugar. It’s the perfect combination of flavors and textures, and I always save room for it when I’m dining at Tony’s.
The Grey Stuff – Be Our Guest, New Fantasyland
This is another one of my all-time favorite Disney desserts. The Grey Stuff is a vanilla bean mousse with a hint of raspberry, and it’s inspired by the “Beauty and the Beast” character, Lumiere. It’s served with a chocolate cookie, and it’s absolutely delicious. If you’re dining at Be Our Guest, make sure to order The Grey Stuff!
Dole Whip – Aloha Isle
Dole Whip is a frozen pineapple soft serve that’s extremely popular at Walt Disney World. You can get it by itself, or in a float with pineapple juice. Either way, it’s delicious and refreshing, and it’s the perfect treat to enjoy on a hot day at the parks.
Churros – Pecos Bill
Churros are a must-have snack when you’re visiting Magic Kingdom. You can find them at Pecos Bill in Frontierland, and they come with a dipping sauce of your choice. I usually go for the chocolate sauce, but the caramel sauce is also really good.
Tiramisu – Tony’s Town Square
This is a classic Italian dessert that’s made with coffee-soaked ladyfingers, mascarpone cream, and cocoa powder. It’s rich and flavorful, and it’s the perfect way to end a meal at Tony
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie – The Plaza Restaurant
You can’t go wrong with anything on the dessert menu at The Plaza Restaurant, but the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is my favorite. It’s a rich and decadent pie made with chocolate and peanut butter mousse, and it’s topped with chocolate ganache and whipped cream. It’s the perfect dessert for any peanut butter lover.
Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake – Liberty Tree Tavern
This is a must-have dessert if you’re dining at Liberty Tree Tavern. The Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is a warm, gooey cinnamon cake topped with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream. It’s absolutely delicious, and it’s the perfect way to end your meal.
Lefou’s Brew – Gaston’s Tavern
This is a non-alcoholic apple beverage that’s served with a hint of toasted marshmallow. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy while you’re visiting Gaston’s Tavern, and it’s also great for those who don’t want to drink alcohol.
MICKEY RICE KRISPIE TREAT – Main St Confectionary
This is a classic rice krispie treat that’s been made into the shape of Mickey Mouse. It’s a must-have if you’re visiting the Main Street Confectionary, and it’s also great for sharing. You can get this item in multiple places but the Main Stree Confectionary is a must stop anyway and the best place to get it.
Cinnamon Rolls – Gaston’s Tavern
My all all time favorite, I have skipped lunch to fit these into my belly. I want one right now and I just might be drooling. These cinnamon rolls are huge, and they’re served with delicious icing. They’re the perfect snack to enjoy while you’re visiting Gaston’s Tavern, and they’re also great for sharing. I always get Lefou’s Brew to go with it but it makes for a very sweet treat.
So there you have it, my top desserts at Magic Kingdom! What’s your favorite dessert at the park?
How To Fit In Your Magic Kingdom Dessert Into Your Day
If I know, anything about going to Magic Kingdom, it’s that everything is everywhere and sometimes I feel like I am walking back and forth all day.
All I keep thinking is, why didn’t I just stay in Frontierland since I am heading back again.
Then I remember… because there are so many places to see and things to do that I never would have made it to everything. So don’t be tough on yourself if you have to go back to where you came from.
Considering you have the three main meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner… where can you fit in your Magic Kingdom dessert?
First, you could go straight for it and get your dessert as soon as you enter the park. I’m not judging because if that is what you want to do, then go for it! You’re on vacation and you can treat yourself however you want. Just be careful because if it’s hot out, your ice cream might start melting pretty quickly.
If you want to save your dessert for later, a great time would be after lunch. You’ve already had a big meal and you’re probably feeling pretty full, so why not take a little break and come back for dessert? This is what I usually do, and it works out great. I’ll usually have something small for lunch so I’m not too full, and then I’ll have a big dessert after.
Another great time to have your dessert is right before you leave the park. If you’re like me, by the end of the day you’re usually pretty tired and you just want to go back to your hotel room and relax. But if you have a little bit of energy left, why not treat yourself to one last dessert before you go? You can even take it to go so you can enjoy it in your hotel room.
If you go with this, make sure to check the hours of the location you want your dessert from. Some locations at Magic Kingdom are not open all day.
So there you have it! These are just a few ideas on how you can fit your Magic Kingdom dessert into your day.
If you want multiple, pick all of those times to have 2-3 different desserts in one day! Yum!
