This post is part of the DFB #OnTheList series, where we feature eats you’ve GOT to have while you’re at Disney! Let us know what’s on YOUR Disney Food Bucket List @DisneyFoodBlog #OnTheList!
The saying goes, “The eyes have it.” But in this case, it’s all about the EARS.
You can spot them on the red-and-blue wrapping imprinted with that famous face…
…or the trademark shape on ice cream cart signs around the parks.
And when you do, it means only one thing: it’s time for a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, and this classic treat is #OnTheList!
The beauty of a Mickey Bar lies in its simplicity: it’s vanilla ice cream wrapped in a thick chocolate shell, all on a popsicle stick. Best of all, it’s Mickey-shaped!
Mickey Bars are provided by Nestle’s, but — sadly — you won’t find these in the freezer aisle in your grocery store.
Then again, maybe that’s for the best. Because I think the final ingredient — even though you won’t find it listed on the packaging — is a little bit of Disney magic.
It just wouldn’t taste quite the same anywhere else.
Let’s hEAR it for Mickey Bars! Please chime in with a comment!

Mickey Bar, butterfinger cupcake,dolewhip float….. nuff said.
For me it’s the frozen banana. A must have for every trip.
I used to love the Simba Bars at DAK but those are long gone. Now my favorite is a Mickey ice cream sandwich with a hot cup of coffee.

I have been eating Mickey Ice Cream bars for many, many years I love eating them.
I’ve never had one!!!!!!!! I never wanted to bite his ears off, but I really have to get one and enjoy it. It does look delicious.
Citrus Swirl, Frozen Banana, Zebra Domes, Salted Caramel Fudge at Werther’s, Yum
Hey AJ, Mickey Bars are iconic and everyone should try one at least once so how about a no prize contest where everyone sends in their pictures with Mickey Bars (must include date and location) and someone (the readers or the staff) gets to vote on the top 3 (or 10).
I had my first one at Typhoon Lagoon last weekend! =D I got one just to say I did, but it ended up being really tasty. The chocolate shell is actually really delicious.

Ok, has anyone noticed or is it just us? Love Love Love the mickey ice cream bars! Daughter has been a fan for 18 years! Tonight, just arrive at Disney Aulani Resort, everyone one ordered a Mickey Bar, and EVERYONE immediately notices, this WAS NOT Ice Cream under the chocolate coating, but ICE MILK. Big Difference! Ice Cream center of the past was so much Smoother. Ice Milk, is gritty! Disappointing beyond all believe! Either Nestle has changed up the inside to a cheaper inside ingredient or we just got 4 freezer burnt Mickey Bars! LOOKED at the ingredients, and there is not one drop of cream listed in the ingredients now.
Good to know ahead of time all those are Nestlé products. We do not buy anything made by that company and will be in WDW next week.
I am so in love with the mickey ice cream bar

My favorite treat. I call it my Disney crack. I have had 7 bars in one day while having one in each of the 4 parks!
