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 15 of our favorites below — and see if you can get ’em all!!!
1. Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
First up is the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar: vanilla ice cream coated a thick chocolate (flavored) shell. That chocolate leans toward the dark side, and it’s a terrific combination with the sweet ice cream. And then, of course, there are the ears. There’s no better place to start, folks!
Find the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar at any ice cream novelty cart in the parks, or in your Resort’s food court.
2. Mickey Pretzel
This next Mickey-shaped food is about as classic as it gets: the Mickey Pretzel. You can find this all over the parks, and it typically comes with a little tub of cheese for dipping. (Scrounge up some chocolate from a churro stand, and you’ve got yourself a salty/sweet food hack!)
3. Mickey (Colossal) Cinnamon Roll
This family-sized treat makes a great breakfast or treat that’s totally shareable. You can find the Colossal Mickey Cinnamon Roll at Creature Comforts in Animal Kingdom and in the Main Street Bakery at Magic Kingdom (the Starbucks locations in these parks).
And if you visit during the later part of the year, you might catch one with a chocolate spider web for Halloween or Christmas vibe (with red and green icing)!
4. Mickey Cake Pops
Mickey Cake Pops can be found all over the parks (and in confectionery cases at BoardWalk Inn and the Contemporary Resort). They’re classic and awesome — and they often come in a variety of colors or seasonal decorative accents.
We pretty much never leave Walt Disney World without consuming at least one of these charming pops.
5. Mickey Waffles
You knew we had to include these iconic treats — and Mickey Waffles aren’t just for breakfast, my friends! Of course, you can enjoy them on breakfast buffets and menus all over the parks, but you’ll find a giant-sized Mickey Waffle at Sleepy Hollow, where you can get one covered in strawberries and whipped cream any time of day, and at Contempo Cafe, where it’s covered in your choice of fruit topping!
6. Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich Hack
For a Mickey-shaped food hack, head to Big Top Treats and pick up two large Mickey Ear Cookies. Then stop at Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor for a scoop of your favorite ice cream and a tub of your favorite sauce. Find a spot to chill while you assemble your Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich!
You can mix and match all kinds of flavors with this hack!
7. Mickey Mousse at Amorette’s Patisserie
Between the ears, the tail, and the sweet yellow buttons, the Mickey Mousse has all the makings of a new classic! And during the holiday season, you might see some special makeovers of this treat.
8. Mickey Scone
Found in confectionery cases around Walt Disney World property, the Mickey Scone comes in two delightful flavors: Blueberry and Birthday Cake. That second one surprised us with its rich texture and fun, colorful confetti! But, sometimes there are special seasonal flavors to look out for as well.
These tend to be a little less sweet than most of the Mickey treats on this list, so if you prefer a more subtle dessert, they might be just right for you.
9. Mickey Cupcakes
There is no shortage of Mickey Cupcakes in Walt Disney World, so this part of the challenge should be easy to fulfill! You can find Mickey Cupcakes at Main Street Bakery, BoardWalk Bakery, or several of the resort food courts!
There are all kinds of classic flavors, of course, but look out for seasonal or limited-time options when you’re there!
10. Mickey Shortbread Cookie
This classic cookie is slightly almond-y and wholly adorable! Mickey Shortbread Cookies can be found at confectionery locations just about everywhere, and while they are super simple, they’re also simply great! We love the different colors for seasonal versions!
11. Mickey Gingerbread Cookie
You can find the Mickey Gingerbread Cookie in confectionery cases during the holidays, of course — but he often appears throughout the year in many confectionery cases! So even though he might be a little harder to find, just keep your eyes peeled… and grab him when you can!
12. Mickey Rice Krispie Treats
This one is a no-brainer! Mickey Rice Krispie Treats come in a variety of designs for the current season or latest Disney flick, or just for fun! Find yours in a confectionery case just about anywhere! And they even come on sticks sometimes for bonus points 😉.
13. Mickey Red Shorts Caramel Apple
For a classic Disney World treat, pick up a Mickey Red Shorts Caramel Apple at one of the confectionery spots around the World!
Mickey also dons his holiday best throughout the year, so you might find him in a more seasonal outfit, too!
Keep in mind that the caramel apples, while very delicious, can also be very difficult to eat! Some locations might be able to cut the apple into slices, which definitely helps (although then you can’t take pictures of it whole, so something to think about!).
14. Mickey Brownie
The Mickey Brownie is a dense brownie that packs enough chocolate punch to satisfy even the biggest of sweet tooths, and sometimes they get a bit of a holiday makeover too!
Find it at a few spots throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
15. Mickey Beignets
At Scat Cat’s Club in Disney’s Port Orleans — French Quarter Resort, you can get Mickey-shaped Beignets COVERED in powdered sugar! You can order 3 or 6 beignets, or even a Mickey-shaped beignet sundae!
Ok, now… I know that’s a LOT to take in. But, if you keep this list handy, you should be golden! Just, maybe don’t eat everything in ONE day, because you might get a stomach ache. Stay tuned to DFB for more Disney World food news and updates!
