The Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is a Magic Kingdom landmark.
Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
Located at the end of Main Street, USA, right before the turn-off into Tomorrowland, this place is an ice cream lover’s dream.
But there’s more than just ice cream on the menu these days. Now that the Magic Kingdom opening show has been moved into the park itself, there’s plenty of time for milling about and noshing on breakfast before the rides officially open.
So the Ice Cream Parlor has graciously stepped in to add some morning fare to its standard list of eats. The additions include a long-awaited treat in the Magic Kingdom; and a sweet and tasty “event” that’s really more dessert than breakfast. But we never judge!
Variety is the name of the game at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. There are several permanent flavors from which to choose as well as an occasional specialty flavor that rotates in and out of the line-up.
And those with allergies or food preferences can find sugar-free and dairy-free varieties here as well. There’s something for everyone!
But lets get back to the big news: this is one the Magic Kindgom’s newest breakfast locations!
Even better: the full menu is also available all day. So now the only problem is convincing yourself that ice cream is a breakfast food. (Um….done.)
We took a look at the Donut Sundae before it made its way onto the official menu, and, unsurprisingly, it was a huge hit. We are so happy to see it solidly on the menu now!
The Donut Sundae features apple pie filling, hot fudge, whipped cream, a giant scoop of ice cream, a glazed donut, and peanut butter and chocolate chips.
I’m not sure how Disney passes this off as breakfast, but I don’t really care. This thing is epic, and completely unique in the world of Disney food. So dive in, y’all!!
This would be an incredibly decadent way to start a Disney day, but when in Disney, anything goes!
The Glazed Donut that forms the foundation of the sundae is now available on its own on the breakfast menu.
This is essentially a krispy kreme glazed donut, so it’s more airy and spongey than cake-like. And while it’s not house-made (I’m preeeeeeety sure they actually do have these delivered by Krispy Kreme), it’s still relatively fresh.
For $1.99 or a Dining Plan snack credit, it is a great start to the day for a donut fan.
Mickey Waffle Platter
A new addition to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor breakfast menu is the Mickey Waffle Platter. That’s right, folks. We’ve finally got Mickey waffles at a counter-service spot in the Magic Kingdom!
Rejoice! The Mickey Waffle Platter comes with three Mickey waffles topped with powdered sugar and a terrific strawberry sauce. We had ours with a side of bacon.
At $8.49, this is the quintessential Disney World breakfast, and we can finally eat it whilst in the shade of Cinderella Castle. Dreams do come true!
If Donut Sundaes and giant plates of Mickey Waffles aren’t your thing, you can also pick up Assorted Cereal options at the parlor. A little box will set you back $3.69.
BUT, if you want some SUPER EXPENSIVE CEREAL, for $13.69, you get your cereal poured into the souvenir Mickey Kitchen Sink pants that are used for the Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae.
(But, really, if it were us, we’d probably just go for the Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae — and not just because we love ice cream. The sundae is $14.99, and for that extra money, you get a lot more bang for the buck in those Mickey pants.)
We are so excited to see new breakfast options in the Magic Kingdom, especially when they are as creative as a Donut Sundae and as wonderful as Mickey waffles.
