Walt Disney World is well known for many things – it’s characters, it’s rides and attractions, and its FOOD, too! We aren’t talking just your standard “burgers and chicken nuggets” amusement park-fare here – they have it ALLLLL – cuisines from all around the globe, amazing drinks and snacks, and plenty of CHOCOLATE too.
If you’re like me and have a MAJOR sweet tooth, then you’ll want to read on for the Best Places To Find Chocolate Treats at Disney World:
Beaches And Cream: This “soda fountain” style eatery features American classics like burgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches on its menu – all of which are delicious. But the star here is the ice cream menu – shakes and sundaes galore – and for you chocolate lovers: The Milky Way Sundae (drenched in hot fudge and caramel), Fudge Mud Slide (brownie AND hot fudge), and my personal favorite – the No Way Jose sundae featuring chocolate ice cream and peanut butter and hot fudge toppings – needless to say, you’ll be in heaven here when it comes to chocolate desserts!
Main Street Confectionary: This is one of my absolute favorite spots in all of Disney World – it’s an old fashioned candy shop located on Main Street and they sell pretty much any and every chocolate treat you can imagine. The candy case is stocked full of candy apples, Assorted dipped Krispie treats, chocolate covered bananas/pineapple/strawberries, cake pops, cupcakes, brownies, chocolate covered marshmallows, cookies…and as if that wasn’t enough, then there’s the ENGLISH TOFFEE (handmade) and ASSORTED FUDGE (turtle, cookies and cream, rocky road – to name just a few flavors). Seriously – my sweet tooth goes nuts in here, and I have to resist taking home one of everything
Boardwalk Bakery: Not only are there tons of amazing chocolate treats available here, but the location is amazing – a nice little boat ride over to the Resort from Epcot, and then a nice stroll down the beautiful boardwalk and boom – you’re in chocolate HEAVEN. Mickey tarts filled with chocolate ganache, chocolate cake, coffee mocha cupcakes, the amazing cheesecake brownie, peanut butter/banana/bacon pie…the list goes on. But really, I have to say, my go-to is the Mickey Tart – the crumbly shortbread-like outside and the creamy chocolate inside…can’t be beat for this choco-holic
Goofy’s Candy Co: the term “a kid in a candy shop” comes to mind when I enter this place – they sell any and all manner of packaged chocolate snacks – which are great to stock up on for when you’re home after your trip and those “post Disney blues” hit hard – salted caramels, chocolate covered pretzels, candy bars, and plenty more! There’s also a bakery style case offering tons of chocolate covered and filled treats, but the real attraction here for me is the “Create your own” treat – start with a base of a Krispie treat, apple, cookie, marshmallows on a stick, or pretzel rods and then they dunk it in your choice of dark, milk, or white chocolate. Then it’s on to the TOPPINGS – chocolate chips, M&M’s, butterfinger pieces, and many more choices – and then top it with a chocolate drizzle (if you dare!) for the perfectly personalized chocolate treat
Mickey Bar: ok so I know this isn’t a “location” to grab a chocolate snack, but I couldn’t write about chocolate at the Disney Parks without giving a nod to the most classic treat of them all – the MICKEY BAR! Vanilla ice cream shaped like the Mouse and covered in chocolate – it’s the most essential “must have” dessert of them all (or breakfast – I don’t judge). They can be purchased pretty much anywhere and everywhere at the Disney Parks, and the Resorts sell them too – so if you’ve never had one, you MUST on your next Disney trip – they are super easy to find, and super hard to resist
Now that I’m officially starving, drooling, and craving chocolate like crazy after writing that, I hope you take my advice and seek out some of these chocolate treats next time you’re at WDW – trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!
