Disneyland is known for its magical atmosphere, its fun characters, and its thrilling rides. It is also known for great food and desserts! Disneyland desserts don’t just taste great, they’re visually appealing as well. From Mickey-shaped treats to Olaf-inspired candy apples, Disneyland Resort is the best place to feed your stomach and your eyes. To help get you started, here are the top 10 desserts to try at Disneyland.
10. Ice Cream at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor
Located on Main Street, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor combines old fashioned décor with delicious ice cream treats. Their ice cream is from Dreyer’s and you can have a cone topped with sprinkles or a delicious ice cream float.
9. Whoopie Pie at Jolly Holiday Bakery
You can get whoopie pies year round at Jolly Holiday Bakery, but their flavors change with the season. This spring you’ll be able to get a chocolate on chocolate whoopie pie: soft brownie cake with white chocolate mousse and rainbow sprinkles. Yum!
8. Character Candy Apples at Candy Palace
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. These delicious apples dipped in chocolate will absolutely keep the doctor away! Character designs change so be sure to pop in to the store to see what’s new.
You can get a tasty churro at carts located throughout both Disneyland Resort parks. These are long, sugar coated classics and are not to be missed!
6. Citrus Cheesecake at Carthay Circle
If you’re planning on dining at Carthay Circle in California Adventure, then make sure to try the citrus cheesecake. It’s light and creamy with California berries and orange essence.
5. Chef Cookie’s Deep Dish at Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue
Barbecue is all about going big and this dessert is no exception! You can choose from a traditional chocolate chip cookie or a ranch hand seasonal cookie, each served with Dreyer’s ice cream and drizzled with the chef’s favorite topping.
4. Mickey Macaroons at Jolly Holiday Bakery
These colorful, sweet, and cute macaroons are the definitive Disney dessert. Alongside their signature raspberry rose macaroon, you’ll be able to try a pistachio macaroon this spring.
3. Pineapple float/Dole Whip
One of the most refreshing desserts at Disneyland is the Dole Whip. Pineapple soft-serve has become a classic and is one of the best ways to cool off on a hot day at the parks.
2. Beignets at Cafe Orleans
Beignets are like airy donuts covered in powdered sugar. At Cafe Orleans, you get Mickey-shaped beignets with vanilla creme anglaise and raspberry Coulis as dipping sauces. (Pictured are pumpkin beignets)
