Review: Cronut a la Mode in Disney World’s Epcot

Last December, we were thrilled to report that Epcot had jumped on the cronut wagon!

Epcot’s Refreshment Port (if you’re walking from Canada, you’ll find the Port immediately before the paths that take you into Future World) quietly introduced them with this unassuming sign listing “Croissant Doughnut.”

Of course, “Croissant Doughnuts” is quite an apt description for these fried pastries formed out of rings of croissant dough (plus, as I mentioned in the previous post, the name “cronut” is trademarked — so legal stuffs and whatever).

We tried ‘em. We loved ‘em. But guess what!!

Not only are the cronuts still in full swing at the Refreshment Port… you can now get them A LA MODE.

You need to approach the counter to see this option: it’s on a small sign near the registers, so you can’t find it on the regular display… at least, not yet.

The ice cream is a generous portion of vanilla soft serve. If you want ice cream with every bite, you’re set!

Of course, I had to get the regular (non a la mode) cronut for a side by side comparison… all in the name of proper research, of course ;) .
