The Cutest Holiday-Themed Treats at Walt Disney World
They're putting the Frozen in Frozen Hot Chocolate Cake.
Olaf’s Frozen Hot Chocolate Cake
Disney World has rolled out many tasty treats inspired by Frozen just in time for the premiere of the sequel, but we have our eye on Olaf’s Frozen Hot Chocolate Cake from the Main Street Bakery. The cocoa cake is layered with a chocolate panna cotta, marshmallow fluff and topped with a super-cute marshmallow Olaf. This treat is sure to be a hit with the little ones.
Holiday Mickey Cinnamon Roll
If you’ve never had a Mickey cinnamon roll from Main Street Bakery, it’s basically a rite of passage at Disney parks. And during the holiday season, the iconic, giant roll is drizzled with red and green icing and topped with a frosting Mickey Santa hat. Be warned: This treat is massive and definitely a bite to share as a group.
Santa Mickey Waffle Sundae
In recent years, Disney has released several fun, seasonal twists to the iconic Mickey waffle and this year the holiday waffle is so over-the-top, we can’t even call it breakfast anymore. This is a total sugar experience with a red velvet waffle, mint chocolate chip ice cream, Christmas sprinkles, chocolate sauce, and — wait for it — peppermint powder.
An Orange Bird Christmas
Another unique treat you’ll find at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is an Orange Bird-themed pastry with "orange-scented white chocolate mousse filled with orange curd on a citrus-almond cream cake with buttercream leaves and a white chocolate piece." If you’re not familiar with Orange Bird, he’s a character Disney created with the Florida Citrus Commission in the 70s while the organization sponsored the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction. The bird has become a cult classic with Disney fans and it’s great to see the little guy get in on the Christmas spirit.
Gaston’s Cheese Dip
If you need a break from all the sugar, head over to Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland for the brand-new beer cheese dip served with bread antlers. Because, of course, bread antlers. This snack is only available on select nights during the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, but is sure to be a fan favorite.
For something less over-the-top, the Snowflake Brownie from Casey’s Corner is a solid choice. The straightforward brownie is decorated in a Frozen-inspired winterscape with sugar snowflakes and icing.
Cherry & Pistachio Float
If you love spumoni, Merry Christmas! At the Aloha Isle quick-service counter in Adventureland, you’ll find the Cherry & Pistachio Float. This colorful concoction is made with cherry and pistachio soft-serve swirled and served over cold hot chocolate. It’s like drinking spumoni cake.
If you went to Disney and didn’t eat a churro, did you even go? The classic theme park treat gets a holiday makeover during Christmastime with red and green sprinkles and a cocoa dipping sauce. The best part about this holiday edition is that you’re served mini churros instead of one long churro so it’s a lot easier to split an order.
Christmas Cookie Milkshake
If you’re obsessed with the cookie butter at Trader Joe’s, this treat is for you. Over in Tomorrowland at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, you’ll find a cookie butter milkshake topped with whipped cream and festive sprinkles. And if that wasn’t Instagrammable enough, the straw features a Mickey-shaped jumbo marshmallow.
Deck the Halls
It doesn’t get hot enough in Orlando to warrant warming Christmas drinks like hot buttered rum, but that’s not stopping Disney from making the classic flavor available. Over at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe, you’ll find a frozen eggnog topped with whipped cream, confetti sprinkles and a festive Christmas tree bulb made from chocolate.
