Storybook Treats at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is the place to go for ice cream in Fantasyland. Located adjacent to Friar’s Nook — where you can currently find Loaded Tots! — Storybook Treats serves up hot fudge sundaes, strawberry sundaes, and floats to guests looking for cool snack.
Happy Weekend!! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking you on a food tour of EVERY restaurant in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland in Walt Disney World!
When it comes to dining, Fantasyland is best known as home to two of the most popular dining experiences in Disney World, with Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant. But it’s not all Castles and Princesses when it comes to Fantasyland restaurants, where you’ll find everything from iconic park treats like Specialty Caramel Apples to Cinnamon Rolls to something by the name of the “Cheshire Cat Tail.” We’ll tell you where to find all those and MUCH more as we check out every single food stop in Fantasyland!

Ho, ho, ho, it’s here! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is here! And I went on the very first night so I could give you the scoop on all the holiday bites and sips!
The Magic Kingdom was bedecked in her absolute finest, Cinderella Castle was positively glowing, and there was more than enough merriment to go around!
Friends, it might be summer in the rest of the country, but at Walt Disney World, Autumn is ON! And while some might say it’s too early for Halloween and Pumpkin-Spiced-EVERYTHING, I am not that person. So you KNOW that while I am happily in Disney World to cover the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, I also HAD to grab my ticket for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!
Every year, Mickey welcomes his pals to this special extra-ticket event at the Magic Kingdom. This year, the party is taking place on select nights from August 25 through November 1. And you’re going to want to read on to find out where you can scare up goodies like THIS…
… plus TONS of other treats! And not just of the candy-in-my-trick-or-treat-bag variety, although there’s plenty of that, too! [Read more…]
Oh, BOY… If you’re going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year, there are even more extra TREATS than ever before in store for you!!
In addition to trick-or-treating spots all over Magic Kingdom, extra special snacks will be available for purchase around the park throughout the party.
!!!! Yeah, we’ll be telling you where you can get your hands on THAT awesomeness VERY soon. First things first, though… a few spooky snacks will be available in the Magic Kingdom ALL DAY, no matter whether you’re attending the Party or not!
ALL DAY TREATS
Today I’ve got some new eats for you from the Magic Kingdom in Disney World!
There are few snacks that are more perfect for warm Florida weather than Frozen Treats! You’d think this would be a fairly limited food genre. An Ice Cream Sundae here, a Pina Colada Slush there. But there’s so much variety that it’s dizzying! You never have to have the same thing twice — if you don’t want to.
But what if you’re looking for something a little…different?
Well, today’s your lucky day. Because we have not one, but TWO new-to-us Magic Kingdom Snack Options to share with you. And they’re both delightfully frosty, perfect for refreshing you after a long day of chasing Fast Passes and Parades.
Wanna see? I know you do.
Frozen Yogurt at Storybook Treats
UPDATE: Please note that as of June 2015, Frozen Yogurt is no longer being served at Storybook Treats.
Looking to answer the call of your Fro Yo craving, then head to Storybook Treats in Fantasyland.
This tiny spot has been one of my favorite dessert stops for a while, because it offers unique snacks, like Fudge Brownie and Strawberry Shortcake Sundaes.
But on occasion, you’ll also find some interesting Frozen Yogurt flavors. And that’s what I was after on a recent visit here.
I hit the “out of the ordinary” jackpot when I spied two cool flavors — Birthday Cake and Cherry! Of course, these just demanded that I get them swirled together. That’s what you’d do too, right??
Since this is Fro Yo and not Ice Cream, it had that predictable tang that you’d expect. I enjoyed both flavors, and the combo was great as well, but I’d give the slight edge to the Birthday Cake.
Because Birthday Cake.
Mango Fruit Bar at Magic Kingdom
Next, we’re stopping by Maurice’s Popcorn Cart in New Fantasyland. I don’t know if that’s what it’s called. But that’s what I’m callin’ it.
Maurice’s features some of the standard, pre-packaged Frozen Treats that we all love — Mickey Ice Cream Bars and Sandwiches, Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Bananas, that adorable Olaf Frozen Lemonade Strawberry Bar (oh, are you STILL here, Olaf?), and the Plain Ole’ Strawberry Bar (seriously refreshing and pretty healthy as such things go.)
But I also spied something I hadn’t seen before — the Mango Fruit Bar. Here’s the interesting thing, though. It’s not a fruit bar like you think of a fruit bar. One look told me this one wasn’t just fruit, but Ice Cream too.
And if the word “Helado” on the front (oh, and the words “Ice Cream”) doesn’t confirm it for you, the ingredients, which include [Read more…]
I can say this much about our pal, Mickey Mouse…
He sure knows how to throw a Very Merry Christmas Party!
From the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, to Holiday Wishes Fireworks, to all the fun in between, including character dance parties and appearances, special stage shows, and a whole, huge [Read more…]
Happy Fall! Autumnal treats have been appearing all over Disney World for a while now, but with Halloween just days away, we thought we’d give you one last glimpse of the season’s snacks.
But that’s not the only food news ’round these parts… not by a long shot. Take a trip with us around all four Disney World parks to check out What’s New!
October is probably my favorite time for the candy apples that hit the scene, like these at Sweet Spells.
Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner currently features a Caramel Apple Shake as its tribute to fall. The featured shakes here change frequently, so be sure to pop by to see what’s available on your visit!
Joffrey’s Coffee Carts all over Disney World have changed their seasonal offerings to include a Pumpkin Pie Latte and a Pumpkin Pie Frozen Cappuccino.
PLEASE NOTE: If you’re coming to this article from another website that linked to it, be aware that Candy Corn soft serve is still available at the Magic Kingdom (get it at Auntie Gravity’s all day, not just during the party), but it is primarily vanilla flavored. The orange is slightly candy corn flavored, but gets overpowered by the vanilla. If you’d like to see what goodies are available at the Halloween Party this year, please take a look at this Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Treats post and this video. Thanks!
The Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has returned to the Magic Kingdom. On select nights through November 1, 2013, this fall event at Walt Disney World offers exclusive fun to ticketed guests. DFB Author Wendy takes us on a tour of this year’s party treats…
Trick or Treat?! As fellow Disney Food Fans, I’m guessing you are definitely after the TREATS! And guests at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party have an extra assortment to choose from, exclusive to the Party!
Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, Party guests are presented with a Trick-or-Treat bag and a park map detailing special events of the evening, including designated Treat spots to put those bags to use.
This park map is your key to finding the exclusive goodies! You’ll find the list of stops on the back.
Let’s have a taste!
First stop: Storybook Treats in Fantasyland!
This little spot specializes in soft serve ice cream concoctions, so it makes sense that this is the home of Candy Corn Soft Serve.
Your choice of cup or cone of blended orange and vanilla soft serve comes sprinkled with crushed pieces of (what else?) Candy Corn!
The sign says “Vanilla Soft Serve,” but the orange ice cream definitely lends a subtle creamsicle taste that was really enjoyable!
People typically fall into one of two camps: there are Candy Corn People, and there are Non-Candy Corn people. I am a Non-Candy Corn person (just not a fan of the texture), so I wasn’t especially excited by this offering. However, the ice cream itself was so yummy, and the candy corn lent it such festivity that I gave this one a thumbs-up!
Next stop: Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland!
A word of caution: you may want to hold off before scrolling down your screen and brace yourself, because what you’re about to see is VERY. SCARY.
Okay, not really… it’s just cute! Gaston’s is serving up Ghost Cupcakes!
This vanilla cupcake is topped with fluffy marshmallow-flavored frosting with a dusting of chocolate cookie crumbs. The star of the show is the [Read more…]
It’s Independence Week in Disney World!
In honor of the celebrations, we’re highlighting the special “Limited Time Magic” treats you can find around the World this week.
These snacks are available only until July 7th; so grab one while you can! Included are an incredible Apple Pie Cupcake; a red, white, and blue Baked Alaska; and even a patriotic Strawberry Shortcake, complete with rich red strawberries and sweet blueberries!
DFB guest photographer Kara B. is there now, reporting live! Let’s dive in…
Apple Pie Cupcake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
If you’re visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week, look for the Apple Pie Cupcake for an all-American treat!
Stop by ABC Commissary, Pizza Planet, Backlot Express, Studio Catering Co., Starring Rolls Cafe, Rosie’s All-American Café, and Fairfax Fare for this limited edition cupcake priced at $4.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
Red, white, and blue sprinkles and a festive white chocolate Mickey Mouse add to the charm of this holiday cupcake. We love all of that caramel buttercream frosting with the extra apple crisp topping!
Mixed in with the vanilla cake is an apple pie filling!
The cake gets great reviews, while the frosting is super-sweet. The apple pie streusel on top is the best part according to our reviewers!
Strawberry (And Blueberry!) Shortcake Sundae at Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom is celebrating the holiday with the addition of a colorful strawberry blueberry shortcake sundae at Storybook Treats for $4.99.
We’re so excited to say that this sundae — pictured below — was the FIRST one to be ordered, served, and enjoyed by a Disney World guest!
Red strawberries and fresh blueberries on top of [Read more…]
