With all the incredible new items popping up on menus around Disney World, sometimes a food fan’s just gotta go back to her roots.
Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
In this case we are referring to a good old fashioned Ice Cream Float. Of course, when you’re talking ice cream in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, you have to talk about the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.
There are plenty of reasons why we love this joint. When we grab an ice cream treat here, we have a front row seat to Cinderella Castle. And then there’s the variety of ice cream on the menu, including options for vegans, the lactose intolerant, and those who avoid sugar.
And recently the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor introduced a new breakfast menu featuring a Donut Sundae. Seriously, y’all, this place just gets better and better.
But if you’re an ice cream treat traditionalist and the Donut Sundae is a little too busy for you (it takes all kinds), Plaza Ice Cream Parlor has you covered too. And on a recent visit, we went for an old standard: the Hard-Scooped Ice Cream Float.
The Float at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is unique in the Magic Kingdom in that you can choose one of any of their amazing hard serve, hand-scooped ice cream. There’s no getting stuck with chocolate/vanilla soft serve here, folks. (Of course, if soft serve floats are your jam, Magic Kingdom’s got that too!)
You can choose from either Coke or Barq’s Root Beer. We tried the Barq’s with a couple scoops of strawberry. The combination was so tasty! Other hard serve options include vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, raspberry sorbet (no sugar added), and butter pecan (no sugar added).
So perfect. Doesn’t this look so totally classic?!? And at $4.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, this is pretty good deal.
We never regret a stop into the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Classics like the Ice Cream Float and exciting new options keep us coming back time and again.
