The Magic Kingdom is home to some of the most magical experiences on earth. Whether it be its signature attractions – such as Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean – or its profound immersion and attention to detail, the Magic Kingdom offers a full day experience that few other theme parks rival. With so much to see and do, some guests may miss out on many unique treats only available at Walt Disney World’s most visited theme park; and this is where the Trackers come to save the day! Follow along as Tim reviews some of the Magic Kingdom’s most Instagram-worthy treats offered at the theme parks today.
1. Minnie Sundae
Our first stop on our Tour O’ Treats around the Magic Kingdom lands us at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, located on Main Street U.S.A, directly adjacent to Casey’s Corner. This delectable treat brings Minnie Mouse to life in an unorthodox, yet delicious way – Chocolate and ice cream! The Minnie Sundae is created using two ice cream scoops topped with Chocolate Sauce, whipped Cream, Strawberries, Chocolate Cream cookies, a chocolate Minnie Bow, and is served in a polka-dot bowl. It seems to be one of our larger desserts on this list, (though delightful) so be sure to bring your family or friends along with you to help finish this sundae off – after you grab a few photos in front of the castle, of course!
2. Adventure is Out There Cone
Blasting off to Tomorrowland, we encounter our next delicacy, courtesy of Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies. The ‘Adventure is Out There Cone’ is man-made using Mango soft serve, candy pieces and a blue cone. We can only assume the candy pieces are meant to be planets(?), but don’t let that distract you from the fact that this ice cream is out of this world! We were impressed by the pleasant taste of the mango ice cream, however we are unable to confirm or deny the importance of the candy pieces on top of the ice cream itself (click or tap here to discover why.) Regardless of this, we still recommend this ice cream treat for anyone in favor of mango-flavored ice cream, or for those who are simply interested in grabbing a selfie in front of the Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies Sign.
3. Mickey Sugar Cookie
After a short walk from Tomorrowland to Storybook Circus, we find our next treat at Big Top Souvenirs: the Mickey Sugar Cookie. This cookie is described by Tim as, “Not really sweet,” but what it lacks in sweetness, it makes up for in design and size. We found this cookie pairs well with some of Disney’s D-Lish merchandise, found within Big Top Souvenirs. Specifically, if purchased with the Donut Minnie Ears, this combination would lend itself well to many an Instagram worthy post (See Tim’s selfie above this paragraph as an example).
4. Lost Princess Cone
If you’re looking for something a bit more unique in both taste and design, look no further than the Lost Princess Cone, located at Storybook Treats Ice Cream in Fantasyland. This Tangled-inspired ice cream is made using Lemon Soft-Serve Ice Cream, topped with edible flowers and placed on a purple cone. Though the flowers lack any real taste, the lemon soft-serve tastes exactly as one would expect from a lemon-flavored dessert item, without the harsh sour taste that comes from eating a real lemon.Whether or not you think you’d enjoy this unique treat, it does lend itself well to a photo in front of the Tangled Tower on the opposite end of Fantasyland. The only challenge is making it from one end to the other without the soft-serve melting in the Florida sun along the way!
5. Mickey and Minnie Ice Cream Sundae Bowl
Last but certainly not least is a sweet treat inspired by our favorite Disney couple, Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Located at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square, this ice cream sundae is made for you and me! It begins with vanilla ice cream, topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. What makes this sundae the Mickey and Minnie Ice Cream Sundae Bowl is our favorite “breakfast” item that deserves to be enjoyed any time of the day – Mickey and Minnie Belgian Waffles! Need we say more?
Bonus: Philly Cheesesteak Roll
We couldn’t end this article without a nod to one of Tim’s favorite menu items at the Disney Parks, eggrolls. Though this may not be the most Instagram-Worthy treat at the Magic Kingdom, the Philly Cheesesteak Eggroll – found in Adventureland at the food cart in between Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean – is rather tasty. Inside of this eggroll, you find mushrooms, cheese, steak, onion, and peppers; all the makings of a Philly Cheesesteak, packed inside of an eggroll! This may not have been Tim’s favorite eggroll, as he still enjoys the Cheeseburger eggroll more. However, he still ranks it above the Buffalo Chicken and Macaroni and Cheese Eggroll.
With so much to see and do at the Magic Kingdom, many of these special treats can be overlooked. We hope this list makes your selection a little easier for you, and we hope to see your photos of some of these treats during your next visit to the parks, because pics or it didn’t happen, right?
