OK, all! I’m so excited to share with you another monster sundae in Disney World! And you can get this in TWO places!! We’ll let you know where WE think you should buy it at the end of the post (best value!!).
Introducing: The Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae! (Which I’d like to, from now on, refer to as the Mickey Pants Sundae.)
We’ll look at the Magic Kingdom’s version first, then swing over to Beaches and Cream to check out their sundae!
At the Ice Cream Parlor, you’ve got three scoops of ice cream — chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry — topped with three toppings — hot fudge, strawberry, and caramel. The whole thing is covered in whipped cream, chocolate and peanut butter chips, and cherries.
The sink itself is what we’re thinking brings the cost up to an astronomical $23. But it IS a pretty cute sink.
I mean, check out those
Mickey glove faucets! And they really do turn and spin like real faucets do.
The ice cream and toppings are standard to the Ice Cream Parlor. You can most likely substitute ice cream flavors if you’d like, though we didn’t try that.
Here’s a close-up of what you get inside. The bowl is very deep, even if its not all that wide. So the actual ice creamage is quite significant.
But, again, it’s that souvenir bowl that you’re paying for. Here’s a shot of the back!
And here’s the whole thing all cleaned out and ready for transport to your souvenir collection at home.
So, that’s what you’ll get at the Magic Kingdom for your $23. But check out what you can get over at the Beach Club!
Mini Mickey Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream
Over at Disney’s Beach Club Resort — home of the original Kitchen Sink Sundae at Beaches and Cream — they have the Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae with a twist! (Thanks to DFB reader Bradd Gross for these Beaches and Cream pics!)
According to the cast members here, this is meant to be a smaller alternative to the actual Kitchen Sink Sundae for guests that don’t have a reservation and have to get their ice cream to-go.
But check out what you get here!!!!!!!
FOUR toppings, PLUS a brownie AND Oreo Cookies! Sprinkles! Chocolate Shavings! I don’t know about you, but that looks like at least $5 worth of extra value when you consider Disney prices for things like that (heck, a brownie costs you $4 in any bakery, right?).
Well, the question here is: Does it make sense to pay $23 for one of these little beauties?
Obviously, the Beaches and Cream Sundae is a much better value. It has more toppings, more extras, etc. But either way, you get to take home that fancy Mickey pants bowl.
According to our reporter, Wendy, “The ice cream is maybe $8, putting the bowl at $15. I could use it to hold popcorn at home for movie night, put it somewhere to remind me of my vacation… . Maybe I’m an idiot, but, yeah, for Disney prices I think I’m pro the Mickey Pants Sundae. I think 3 bucks less would be about right, but it’s cute.”
I tend to agree (not about the you being an idiot part ;-D).
By the way, Wendy also recommends asking the restaurant or nearby store for a plastic bag to carry the souvenir pants bowl home — it can be really messy to clean that thing in the Disney auto-sinks! That said, she did mention that it’s pretty light as the legs are hollow. An easy souvenir to tote!
What do you think?? Would this Mickey Pants Sundae be a family memory for you, or will you use your $23 elsewhere?
