Magic Kingdom Frozen Snacks: Storybook Treats Frozen Yogurt and Mango Fruit Bar

Today I’ve got some new eats for you from the Magic Kingdom in Disney World!

Wall into the New Fantasyland in Disney World's Magic Kingdom

Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom

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.

We all know the popular ones — Dole Whips. Citrus Swirls. Mickey Bars. Handmade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.

Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sammy!

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.

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.

What’s New Around Disney World: October 28, 2014

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!

Hollywood Studios

October is probably my favorite time for the candy apples that hit the scene, like these at Sweet Spells.

Review: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Treats

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!

Welcome sign!

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.

Party Map

This park map is your key to finding the exclusive goodies! You’ll find the list of stops on the back.

Food and Beverages

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.

Candy Corn Cone Sign

Your choice of cup or cone of blended orange and vanilla soft serve comes sprinkled with crushed pieces of (what else?) Candy Corn!

Candy Corn Cone

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!

Gaston's Tavern

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.

Ghosts on display

Okay, not really… it’s just cute! Gaston’s is serving up Ghost Cupcakes!

Review: 4th of July “Limited Time Magic” Treats in Walt Disney World

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!

Mickey Mouse July 4th Cupcake!

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!

The Magic Kingdom is celebrating the holiday with the addition of a colorful strawberry blueberry shortcake sundae at Storybook Treats for $4.99.

Disney Strawberry Shortcake Desserts

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! Anyone who’s been to Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue at Fort Wilderness knows how historic this dessert is at Walt Disney World!

And, luckily, there are several versions to sample around the parks and resorts! Let’s take a peek at a few that we enjoy…

Strawberry Shortcake at Sunshine Seasons

Nestled on the lower level of the Land pavilion in Epcot, Sunshine Seasons is known for market-fresh eats.

One of the best desserts at Epcot (and also a great value) is the strawberry shortcake. Fresh strawberries, smooth whipped cream and gorgeous vanilla shortcake are layered together for a fresh and decadent treat.

Hot Fudge Cookie Sundae On the Menu at Storybook Treats

UPDATE: Please note that as of June 2015, the Hot Fudge Cookie Sundae is no longer being served at Storybook Treats. 

We told you earlier about the awesome hot fudge, and strawberry shortcake sundaes at Storybook Treats in the Magic Kingdom, but now there’s something even better — well, in my opinion anyway!

Introducing the Chocolate Chunk Cookie Hot Fudge Sundae at Storybook Treats!

Storybook Treats Sundae

This is SUPER exciting to me, since one of my favorite sundaes at Eat-n-Park back when I was in college was their massive cookie hot fudge sundae! I always put strawberry sauce on it, which gives me a great idea for how to alter this sundae as well… ;-) Anyway…

From Whence It Came

The menu has consistently offered a chocolate chunk cookie as well as a hot fudge brownie sundae, and my guess is that so many guests asked for the cookie to be substituted for the brownie that they decided to just make it a permanent addition to the menu!


Also, remember that caramel sauce can be substituted for the hot fudge on most Storybook Treats sundaes. So on my visit last week, I asked if they could just add [Read more…]
