Review: New! All-American Sundae at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

It’s National Ice Cream Month, everyone!!!

And one of our favorite stops for ice cream at Walt Disney World is the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in the Magic Kingdom.

And today, we’ve got another brand new addition to share with you! Especially those of you who love all of those Disney peanut butter treats. 

Introducing: the All-American Sundae! This new sundae at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor came to our attention thanks to DFB reader Miranda, and we couldn’t wait to dive in!

Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter drizzle, whipped cream, and a cherry? Yes please! And you can get it for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit!

Note that this isn’t just a limited time treat — this is on the menu for the foreseeable future, so you should have no problem picking one up on your next Disney World visit!

Let’s take a look…

All-American Sundae

The All-American Sundae comes by default with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, but feel free to request any of the flavors available.

We went with the “advertised” version. (Though I have seen peanut butter cup ice cream at the Plaza in the Flavor of the Month slot before, and that would be yum.)

As a peanut butter lover, the hot PB topping was perfect. There was plenty of it on the sundae (though layers would be nice)…and that’s the most important part.

Peanut Butter!

The hot Florida sun and hot fudge helped to slightly melt the ice cream by the time I found a table. :-) The flavors were great together, of course.

And while this new sundae might not exactly rival the No Way Jose at Beaches and Cream, the setting and ability to eat it in the shadow of Cinderella Castle might just give it an edge in the race.

This space, formerly occupied by the old Boulangerie Patisserie, is a perfect location for the new sweet stop. And featuring sixteen icy, delicious flavors (and an extra surprise I’ll mention in a moment), I know it’s going to be an instant hit — especially during the Orlando Summer! Let’s head in and check it out…
