What’s even sweeter than a sugar cube? A Mickey-shaped sugar cube!
Can’t get enough Mickey-shaped treats this Halloween season? We brought you the scoop on festive fall treats available in Walt Disney World, and now we’re coming at ya with a review on this spooky, sweet treat from Trolley Car Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Need to know more about this pumpkin-inspired dessert? We’ve got you covered.
Officially named Chocolate Cake – topped with chocolate mousse and chocolate Mickey ears, this dessert consists of a mini chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse, orange and black glaze, and chocolate Mickey ears. Anyone else feel like they missed an opportunity to call this Mickey Mousse? No, just us? 🙂
With so many creative and interesting snacks available at Disneyland Resort, it might seem like there’s no place for the simplest of treats: good ol’ fashioned Jell-o.
But that’s where White Water Snacks steps in — in the most magical way possible. Because White Water Snacks has Mickey-shaped Jello!
Woo! Back it up! Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (follow her @DiningInDisney!) stopped in for a snack recently, and discovered these jiggly mouse-shaped treats in a cooler in the grab-and-go section.
Also in this cooler are cream for coffee and packets of butter for other dishes — right next to a whipped cream canister.
Heather being the intrepid Disneyland snacker that she is spotted an opportunity immediately. The thick strawberry Jello was a decent portion and honestly as cute as one might reasonably expect Jello to be.
And now she had the perfect Jello food hack: cover that sweet treat in delicious whipped cream!
From every angle this has childhood favorite written all over it — only it’s not just a bowl of hastily spooned Jello. It’s Mickey!
Okay, so technically this is called Mickey Strawberry Gelatin, but we like to keep simple things simple: it’s Jell-o. And it’s delightful!
And that’s how Mickey Jello with Whipped Cream was born! And we love it in every way!
We’re so happy that the simplest food pleasures persist, even in the face of the incredible creativity and skill that brings pastries and desserts to life at the Disney Parks. And a food hack involving Whipped Cream? Always a win!

We recently gave you a heads up that Disneyland Resort icon River Belle Terrace is now serving table service breakfast, and if you thought we’d miss a chance to review this offering, you were sorely mistaken. 😉
Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (@DiningInDisney) headed in and ordered everything on the menu — all for you!
River Belle Terrace is a Disneyland icon for a reason: the dining location has been a fixture since the park’s opening, although its name has changed over the years. The current moniker has been in place since 1971, and the style and decor? Oh, just you wait!
It’s challenge time, Disney food friends! And this time it’s all about the Main Mouse: Mickey! You already know that we love pretty much all things Mickey-shaped, so what better excuse to munch on those iconic ears than with a Mickey-Shaped Food Challenge?! Thanks to our DFB youtube channel viewer who suggested this fun challenge!
Disney Food Challenge: Mickey-Shaped Eats
Check out 19 of our favorites below — and see if you can get ’em all!!!
There are so many unique eats at the Tokyo Disney Resort. In this post, I’ve complied most of the items my family tried on our recent trip. Rather than do individual posts on each thing, here’s a mega post featuring them all! Ready, let’s go to Tokyo!
I’m going to start with my very first snack stop at Tokyo Disney Sea. We stopped at Refrescos’ in the Mediterranean Harbor area for a little bit of everything: A Gyoza Sausage Bun, a Maple Mickey Churro, and Cream of Corn Soup. Basically one of every thing on the menu. We were really excited because there was absolutely zero line. I’m told that the Gyoza Sausage Bun is one of the most popular items at Disney Sea and sometimes people wait over an hour for one. We lucked out because apparently this was an area that just recently started selling them. Normally they are only at the stand in Mysterious Island.
I was most excited about the Maple Mickey Churro, but unfortunately, it fell way short of the churros we have at the Disneyland Resort. Although it scored major points for being Mickey shaped, the churro itself was hard, dry and had very little flavor. Really cute, but not at all worth it.
The Corn Soup was fabulous. It’s not creamy like a chowder you’d find in the states, but it is still flavorful and hits the spot on a chilly day. I love that it’s served in [Read more…]
If you’re like me, you typically reserve gingerbread treats for the end of the year. I simply can’t disassociate the fragrance and taste of gingerbread from all-things-Holidays.
I look forward each November to the Gingerbread Cupcake at Hollywood Studios in the same way I look forward to making gingerbread treats in my own home throughout December. (Okay, so they’re the pre-made/pre-cut cookies that you just have to warm up in the oven… that counts, right?)
BUT, if you want access to delicious gingerbread all year round…you’ve got it — in the form of the Mickey Gingerbread Cookie!
You’ll often find this little guy in bakery cases across Disney World. But I’ve had the best luck at Sweet Spells and Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios, Goofy’s Candy Co. in Downtown Disney, and Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery, which is where I grabbed mine.
The composition is simple: a gingerbread cookie with the signature ears dipped in milk chocolate, with two white chocolate candy buttons to spiffy up the ol’ outfit. To be honest, he looks more like a “Mickey Fan Gingerbread” wearing an ear hat as opposed to a “Mickey Gingerbread” to me, but we’ll let that slide, since he looks cute as a traditional Gingerbread Man either way!
Maybe it’s because [Read more…]
For those of you who have visited a Disney Park before, you might be familiar with this chilly chocolate-cookies-and-cream snack of deliciousness!
Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich is a delicious Nestle treat offered at ice cream snack carts and freezers throughout the parks and resorts. Any ice cream treat with a Mickey face smiling up at you is bound to be a memorable snack. 🙂
To create this (admittedly quite large) snack, Cookies and Cream ice cream is sandwiched between two chocolate wafers. The texture of the wafers is similar to a typical ice cream sandwich, but they’re a little crispier (no sogginess here!) like actual cookies.
The different textures of the ice cream and the cookies makes this a [Read more…]
The DFB Mini-Guide to Magic Kingdom Snacks e-Book is packed with salty, savory and sweet munchies that make a day at the Magic Kingdom even more memorable! You know how much I love food-inspired crawls, so today I’d like to share with you the details of the I Heart Mickey Snack Crawl we developed for our Magic Kingdom Snacks guidebook.
I can’t promise that you’ll run into Mickey Mouse during this icon-enriched tour, yet you can honor our favorite mouse by feasting on these Mickey-shaped treats in the Magic Kingdom!
Here we go…
Travel to your starting point — Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square — to enjoy the ever popular Mickey Waffle. We’re going for the plate-sized Mickey waffle, here; and this is one of the only places in the World you can get them!
Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
