And, we’ve got our floral Minnie Ears in tote because we’re heading to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort to try a NEW dessert that will make you feel like you’re kicking back on the beach!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom might be the place to see actual animals, but the Tropical Flamingo Miniature Gateau (wow, that’s a mouth-full, isn’t it?) is shaking its tail feathers at the Gasparilla Island Grill.
The golden sponge cake is filled with a tropical-flavored mousse with butter cream and a sugar flamingo. And, while that already sounds delicious, we can’t get over how stinkin’ cute this gateau is with those piped “feathers” and the flamingo head greeting guests!

The cake on the gateau was wonderfully light and moist, which is complimented by the flavorful mousse. The tropical flavors are a nice stand-out compared to the vanilla flavors of the buttercream and cake.
Buuut, we have to say that we wish there had been enough mousse and cake to balance ALL THAT FROSTING! While the buttercream tasted great, there was a LOT of it on the gateau, causing the other flavors to be drowned out a bit.
If you’re a mega icing fan (or your kids are snacking on this), you’d probably love it as is! Still, you may want to scrape off some of that frosting to really take in the flavors of the cake and tropical mousse instead.
You can kick off your summer vacations with the Tropical Flamingo Miniature Gateau for $7.99 before exploring the rest of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort! And, we’ll be sure to give you a look at the rest of the treats we spot around Disney World soon. Stay tuned with DFB for the latest Disney news and reviews!
