Editor’s Note: Both Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom and Fountainview in Epcot are now Starbucks locations and do not currently offer Customized Ice Cream Sandwiches. They are still available in Magic Kingdom at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. At Epcot, you can find Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches at L’Artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilion. Look for them at Dino Bites in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Scoops in Hollywood Studios.
One of my faaaaaaaaaavorite snacks in Disney World is the homemade ice cream cookie sandwich that can be found in all four parks.
Now I’m not talking about the Nestle “pre-packaged” version (although those are delicious); I’m talking about the fully homemade, ginormous-cookies-with-two-scoops-of-ice-cream-smooshed-between-‘em ice cream cookie sammich. Oh look! Here’s one now!
Yep, these have been cult favorites in Disney parks for years. They’ve long been my breakfast of choice from the Main Street Bakery (well, those and the cinnamon rolls of course).
Anyway, I’m not here to tell you about these beautiful little gifts of ice creamy goodness. I’m here to tell you about a special SECRET about the gifts of ice creamy goodness…
SEASONAL ICE CREAM FLAVORS and COOKIES!
Huzzah! — you’re often not just stuck with vanilla in those sammies! Though they usually don’t note this on the menu, many of the locations that sell the ice cream sandwiches are able to customize them for you, too!
For example, over at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in the Magic Kingdom, seasonal ice cream flavors are often available. We’ve seen mint chocolate chip, peppermint, and even pumpkin!
You may also be able to customize your cookies! This is a possibility at the Main Street Bakery, where we saw this fun Halloween sugar cookie sandwich…
But the ultimate in customization seems to be over at the Fountainview Cafe in Epcot. This sleepy little spot is all about customizing your sandwich!
Check out the adorable snowflake shaped gingerbread cookies, holiday sprinkled sugar cookies, and yummy holiday flavors available on my visit in December!
And remember, Fountainview has a LOT of ice cream flavors, so I’m guessing you can customize even further… (maybe one scoop of one flavor, and one scoop of another!).
By the way, you can also get these fabulous sandwiches at Dino-Bites in Animal Kingdom, and a Hollywood Scoops in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (where I bet you can customize as well!).
Again, the seasonal flavors and cookies aren’t usually on the menu, so be sure to ask!
Have you tried other flavors of ice cream or cookies in your ice cream sandwiches? Let us know in the comments below!
