The donut cart that resides in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland is known for its incredible donut creations — and two new donuts are ready-made to celebrate the royal mouse couple.
The Mickey Mouse Donut is a yeasted donut sliced lengthwise — bagel style. It’s glazed with red and black and topped with two yellow chocolate Mickey buttons! You definitely feel the spirit of the Mouse with this design!
But the real magic is between those donut layers, because that’s where you’ll find a ton of chocolate mousse!
Chocolate. Mousse. It tastes like a combination of hot chocolate and whipped cream — and it is seriously special. The mousse filled the donut and got into every bite, elevating the otherwise simple donut to the next next level. We’re going to say it: it’s one of the best donuts we’ve had from the Donut Cart.
The Minnie Mouse Donut starts with a yeast donut as well, but it’s not sliced. Instead, there’s a small dip in the middle that’s filled with chopped strawberries. There’s also the ubiquitous white chocolate Minnie bow.
The strawberries are fresh and complement the glaze (more on THAT in a second), but because they’re so large and separate from the donut — rather than incorporated into it like a jam — it was easier to eat the berries on their own.
The star of the Minnie Mouse Donut is the glaze, which is strawberry lemonade! You can really taste both the strawberry and the lemonade flavors in the glaze, and it’s delicious. Absolutely the glaze makes the donut.
The bottom line? The Minnie Mouse Donut is one you can maybe share with a pal, but the Mickey Mouse Donut? NO SHARING! Keep this one all to yourself! 😉 Each donut costs 6.50, and there’s no AP discount.
DFB Dining Tip: When are donuts actually available at the Donut Cart?
But we also want to share with you a little info about when you can get your hands on donuts at the Donut Cart. Typically, the Donut Cart is filled at park opening and again at 5PM. BUT the Mickey and Minnie Donuts will have three “donut drops” (according to the cast member we spoke with): 11AM, 1PM, and 3PM. Believe it or not, there was a line starting at about 10:30Am that grew about ten-deep by 11, when the Mickey and Minnie Donuts arrived. And while donuts here are usually delivered about 24 at a time, there were noticeably more Mickey and Minnie Donuts in the delivery we saw.
