Editor’s Note: Camp Snacks has closed permanently.
We’re gonna head back over to the Animal Kingdom today, because I found a couple of desserts in Camp Minnie Mickey that I couldn’t wait to share with you!
After many years, Chip and Dale have vacated this snack bar, and now it’s serving up hot dogs, drinks, chips, and a few sweet treats.
These are walk-up windows; you won’t find any indoor seating here. But hey! We’re at Camp Minnie Mickey, right? And so we’ve got to rough it just a bit.
This is a good spot to grab a bite while you’re waiting for your turn at the Festival of the Lion King!
You won’t find a ton of topping options for your hot dogs, though. Pretty much you’ll have your pick of mustard or ketchup with some packaged relish.
But I wasn’t here for the dogs on this day. It was sweet treats that drew me to the little cabin!
We are big fans of Strawberry Shortcake around here, so this was a must try!
Made with real, live pound cake; thick, sweet strawberry topping; and a generous crown of whipped cream, this looked pretty good!
And it was! There was a good cake-to-topping-to-whipped-cream ratio, and that’s a pretty important factor for making a good strawberry shortcake. In hindsight, I would have asked for a bit of vanilla soft serve on top!!
Worms ‘n Dirt Sundae
Next, there was no way I was passing up the chance to eat a Worms ‘n Dirt Sundae. Seriously. And with Halloween just around the corner, this was the perfect time for it!
Vanilla soft serve, topped with cookie crumb “dirt,” seasonal sprinkles, and a wiggly worm peeking out of the side — what’s not to like? Your kids will love the gross deliciousness of the whole thing. Because I totally did. 😉
And not to worry — you don’t get just one worm! I found at least two, maybe three, buried in my sundae.
It’s a little different than the version you’ll find at the Pop Century Resort Food Court, but every bit as yum, in a cold, soft serve kinda way.
So, if you find yourself in this part of the park, parched, starving, or just in need of a little treat, definitely give the petite snack cabin a try! The strawberry shortcake was a super fun find for me, and I know your kiddos will love those worms ‘n dirt!
Have you tried the strawberry shortcake or worms ‘n dirt sundae at Camp Minnie Mickey? Which one would you choose?
