You might think that all of the Disney parks sell the same ice cream treats — Mickey Premium Bars, Strawberry Bars, Itzakadoozie Pops, etc. But, would you believe, it looks like not all of the ice cream stands sell the same products!
I did a little experiment and took photos of ice cream stand menus in each park. Here are the results:
The Animal Kingdom ice cream board:
The Epcot ice cream board:
The Magic Kingdom ice cream board:
Disney’s Hollywood Studios ice cream board:
So what does this tell us? Let’s do a little debriefing:
- If you want a no-sugar-added strawberry bar, you’ve gotta go to the Magic Kingdom or the Animal Kingdom (yep — it’s there — ya gotta look at the small print!)
- I can’t find those Edy’s Dibs anywhere but the Magic Kingdom…
- DHS and Epcot have pretty much the same offerings, but they’re the only two identical menus!
- Itzakadoozie pops seem to only be at MK, Epcot, and DHS — not at AK
- Where’d the Nestle chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches go?! Has anyone seen them?
- Only at MK and AK will you find the Haagen Daaz Vanilla and Almond ice cream bars
- The four items you can find everywhere: Mickey Premium Bars, Mickey’s Cookies and Cream Sandwiches, Edy’s Strawberry Bars, and Frozen Bananas
- You’ll find almost everything at MK…except my favorite — the pineapple bar!
Now, I have to admit, very little of this makes any sense to me: sometimes the menus are stamped “Nestle,” sometimes Edy’s or Haagen Daaz products are sold, sometimes small print advertises items not pictured. I also have to admit that I have no idea why this is so interesting to me. Regardless, I can’t wait to find out what you guys are seeing in the parks! Do different stands in the same park sell different items? Is there a reason why you can’t get certain items is specific parks? What are you finding in YOUR experiments?
