Another month has come and gone, which means it’s time to wrap up our monthly picks for the best and worst things we tried in Disney World in May!
This month includes seasonal items as well as items you can still find in the parks and resorts — let’s drive right in and see what made it to the top (and bottom) of our list!
Nutella Boston Cream Donut — Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew
Once again, Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew tops our monthly list of favorite food items we ate. We actually tried a trio of new donuts in the month of May, each one of them tasty and sweet, but it was the Nutella Boston Cream Donut that truly stole our hearts.
This dessert is a glazed donut filled with vanilla custard and topped with Nutella icing — you don’t even need to ask us twice to try it! This donut was the perfect marriage of chocolate and vanilla, and we’re crossing all of our fingers and toes that this donut sticks around! Check it out next time you visit Everglazed for $5.50.
Disney Cruise Line Treats — The Market at Ale & Compass
While we still wait for Disney Cruise Line to return to normal operations, we were in for a treat this month at The Market at Ale & Compass! Their Lemon Raspberry Tart and Blueberry Cream Cheese Trifle are themed to make you feel like you’re aboard one of the cruise ships!
While we wish Disney could have used this opportunity to come up with more clever names, these landlocked oceanic desserts were both memorable in the best way possible! The Trifle gave us major Blueberry Cobbler vibes while the Tart struck a great pairing with the tanginess of the lemon and the sweetness of the raspberry.
The Trifle was $4.99 and the Tart was $5.49!
Korean BBQ Fries — The Daily Poutine
Poutine is a pretty big deal for us at Disney World. When a new poutine flavor is introduced, we make sure to check it out — and we’re sure glad we came across the Korean BBQ Fries at The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs.
These fries, topped with Korean-Spiced Pulled BBQ and Kimchi, drizzled with Sriracha Mayo, and then garnished with Spring Onion, were a stellar menu addition for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. We wish this could be a regular menu item!
Saimin Ramen & Buffalo Chicken Egg Roll — Morimoto Street Food
Our final entries on the “best” list for the month of May is a doubleheader, courtesy of Morimoto Street Food in Disney Springs! Ramen fans will want to make a trip here ASAP to grab their new Saimin Ramen dish — loaded with flavor, this filling dish is a great option to share with a friend (or keep all to yourself…we won’t judge).
You can find this tasty ramen dish at Morimoto Street Food for $16. Not to be outdone, however, are their Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls! Both creamy and crispy, these egg rolls were also packed with a ton of flavor and didn’t skimp out on the chicken.
The best part? They were only $4 a piece! It’s not every day you come across a stellar, flavorful Disney World snack at under $5, and we hope to see even more varieties in the future!
Lemon Pound Cake and Croissant Doughnut — Contemporary Grounds
If you’re looking for a quick bite to eat or a cup of coffee before heading out to the parks at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Contemporary Grounds is a convenient counter location for breakfast pastries and drinks on-the-go. If you have time to spare, however, we would recommend you seek out your breakfast elsewhere.
While their coffee can be a solid option for you in the morning, their new Lemon Pound Cake and Croissant Doughnut left much to be desired. In our opinion, you’re better off stopping by Contempo Cafe, or hold out until you reach the park for a breakfast pastry.
If you’re at the Contemporary and looking for a quick breakfast, you can find their Lemon Pound Cake and Croissant Doughnut for $4.99 each. But if you ask us, if you’re going to Magic Kingdom in the morning, head straight to Gaston’s Tavern for one of their Warm Cinnamon Rolls instead!
Mother’s Day Red Velvet Cupcake — Contempo Cafe
The month of May brought us TONS of Mother’s Day-themed treats across the parks and resorts. While many of them were hits (like the Mother’s Day Mimosa Miniature Gâteau), a few were also total misses, like the Mother’s Day Red Velvet Cupcake from Contempo Cafe.
While this cupcake was certainly Instagram-worthy, we found our cupcake to be particularly dry with a near-solid cream cheese filling from being chilled. The textures alone left us disappointed, but there were plenty of other Mother’s Day treats to write home to Mom about last month! The cupcake was available for $5.99.
Sweeter Than Roses — The Market at Ale & Compass
Last and we guess…least…was Sweeter Than Roses at The Market at Ale & Compass. This year’s Mother’s Day desserts were all 10/10 when it came to appearance — just look at this beautiful treat!
Ultimately, however, this raspberry mousse atop a chocolate hazelnut cake with a ruby red raspberry center and chocolate fondant decorations was a bit TOO messy for us to really enjoy, and the texture of the mousse threw us off. It was available as a Mother’s Day treats for $5.79.
We’re looking forward to trying even MORE of the latest and greatest treats around Disney World for the month of June! Be sure to stay tuned as we review each and every new food item that comes our way, and be on the lookout for more monthly wrap-ups of our most (and least) favorite treats!
