Possibly unique to this location (let us know if you spot them elsewhere!!), this Dippin Dots version of the Create Your Own Sundaes are especially fun!

With the combination of ice cream choices, personally selected toppings, and a variety of portion options, these dishes really deliver on personalization!

Go ahead and customize your own refreshing treat.

These sundaes are made with a selection of Dippin’ Dots flavors! (Read: Tiny spheres of ice cream.)

You know how we love our treats; we suggest ordering the LOL (lots of layers). And send us a picture when you do!

Of course, there’s toppings. You’ll choose from mini M&Ms, sprinkles, mini Gummy Bears, Oreo Cookies, Butterfinger, Reese’s Cups, and Heath Bar. (What would you fill in that extra toppings container?!! For me, it would be Nestle Crunch!)



Don’t forget to stay alert for seasonal drinks, including lattes such as Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread White Mocha, Pumpkin Pie, and Maple Spice Raspberry.

Offering Joffrey’s coffee and pastries, you’ll find this location VERY handy on your early morning walk to the Magic Kingdom. Or perhaps you’ve stopped by the resort to shop while riding the monorail’s circuit. Or just plop down on the cozy sofa!

Personally, I love to stare up at these gorgeous lights. Sigh. ;)

Grab your starter brew, bottle of juice, or can of soda pop; and don’t pass up the baked goods — they are fresh and delicious!

DFB friend Daniel Wanderman was really impressed by the oversized donuts! He even sent us this pic that has a gift card for sizing comparison!

Now that's a hefty donut

For those of you in the 21 and over crowd, enhance your coffee or latte with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua, or Jameson Irish Whiskey. On a hot Florida day, the Tea Breeze will keep you refreshed with its concoction of frozen lemonade, fresh brewed tea, and Grey Goose Vodka! (Tip: You’ll also find the Tea Breeze at several other Joffrey’s locations.)

You’ll find these same beverage and pastry options at most Joffrey’s kiosks seen throughout Walt Disney World parks and resorts. We recommend grabbing pastries from the Animal Kingdom’s kiosk right outside the park; you’ll be done refueling before you even get to Expedition Everest!

What’s your favorite treat from the Joffrey’s kiosks? Chime in; fill up the comments below!

    Mmmmmm, latte with Bailey’s Irish Cream would go down good in cold weather during a holiday visit.

  2. Kim says:

    Essie – Sounds delicious to me!!

  3. Dani says:

    Perfect for when I skip parking at the TTC and use the walkway to MK (:

  4. Aldo says:

    Is this the only place that you can get Dippin’ Dots at WDW ?

  5. Kelly M says:

    Never been a fan of Dippin’ Dots but those donuts have me salivating…. Why oh why am I in ‘cutback on the food’ mode.

  6. Kris says:

    Dippin’ Dots was at sampling their newest creation, Kettle Corn, at IAAPA…they were so good. Hope to see it pop up in this location.

  7. Tricia says:

    Must add a Tea Breeze to my to try list

  8. Allie BC says:

    Omg, those donuts! They look bigger than the muffins! O.O

  9. Kim says:

    Aldo – Arctic Dots is a kiosk at Typhoon Lagoon, although I’m not certain that they are Dippin’ Dots.

    Allie BC – They really are huge. My hubby and teen son enjoyed them on our recent trip. I highly recommend the cinnamon rolls. I could go for one right now!! ;)

    Tried to get the Dippin’ Dots sundae last night at Common Grounds, and the woman behind the corner looked at me like I had two heads as she told me that they don’t have that anymore. As I looked back at the menu to confirm I wasn’t crazy for asking, she explained they hadn’t taken it off the menu yet. Not sure how long it’s been gone.

  11. Lisa says:

    We’ll boo. Brought the DH & kids here as a surprise (the kids loooove dippin dots) & same 2 headed reaction. They are most definitely not offering it anymore. :-(

  12. AJ says:

    Lisa — Thanks so much for your feedback! Sorry about that!
