Some of our favorite Out-Of-This-World snacks in Disney World:
Magic Kingdom Cupcakes
The Master’s Cupcake — Gaston’s Tavern
Lumiere made it famous when singing “Be Our Guest” to Belle in Beauty and the Beast: “Try THE GREY STUFF, it’s delicious!” And YOU can try it for yourself with The Master’s Cupcake!
This chocolate cupcake is topped with the famous Grey Stuff and garnished with crispy pearls.
Merry Unbirthday Cupcake — Cheshire Cafe
What’s that? It’s your UNBIRTHDAY, you say? Guess what… it’s mine, too! And what better way to celebrate than with the Merry Unbirthday Cupcake?!
This UNBirthday cake is topped with a tea-infused buttercream and is POSITIVELY PACKED with SPRINKLES!
Hollywood Studios Cupcakes
Earl Grey Cupcake — The Trolley Car Cafe
The Earl Grey Cupcake is surprising with its authentic tea flavor in the base of the cupcake, and it’s topped with orange buttercream frosting.
It’s truly unique and worth a try. Get it at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with a stop at The Trolley Car Cafe!
Take some of that decadent, gooey Werther’s caramel at Karamell-Küche and tuck in INSIDE a chocolate cupcake (we’ve seen vanilla, too), then take MORE caramel and drizzle it all over the salted caramel buttercream piled on top…
.. and then you have the terrific Werther’s Original Salted Caramel Cupcake… the perfect treat for all of us caramel lovers!
P.S. In the fall, you’ll often find this cupcake in a PUMPKIN SPICE version!
Named “the world’s first cupcake bakery” (the original location opened in Beverly Hills in 2005), Sprinkles is serving up its famous handcrafted cupcakes in the Town Center of Disney Springs.
There are OODLES of flavors to choose from, but my favorite is pictured above: the signature SPRINKLES Cupcake!
Disney World Resort Hotel Cupcakes
Mermaid Tail Cupcake — Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
Isn’t it lovely? The Mermaid Tail Cupcake is certainly a stunner!
This vanilla cupcake with pineapple filling is topped with coconut buttercream, a white chocolate Mermaid Tail, candy pearls, and EDIBLE GLITTER with a graham cracker topping that looks like sand. And it tastes every bit as great as it looks!
Zebra Cupcake: This delectable goodie features vanilla cake piled high with buttercream frosting and white- and dark-chocolate striped shavings. Representing the graceful zebra found on the Animal Kingdom savannas, it’s the perfect sweet treat for this theme park!
White Chocolate Elephant Cupcake: The tallest cupcake in our bunch of snacks, this begins with dark chocolate cake, a vanilla cream frosting, and toasted coconut. What makes it outstanding, though, is that gorgeous white chocolate elephant on the top!
Peanut Butter Cupcake: Possibly the new fave cupcake at the Disney Food Blog! This cupcake is topped with a cookie-dough textured frosting that is also deliciously discovered on the inside of the chocolate cake.
Oreo Bon Bon Cupcake: Vanilla fans will enjoy the yellow cake and frosting! An Oreo crumb ribbon circles the bottom of the frosting layer but it’s the buttercream frosting (that tastes like cookies and cream) that creates a memorable cupcake. Oh, and it’s crowned with Mickey Oreo ears!
The King Cupcake: As a tribute to Elvis Presley, the cupcake features all of the flavors from the King’s renowned favorite sandwich: Chocolate Cupcake, Banana Custard Filling, Peanut Butter Frosting, Chocolate Drizzle, and yes – Candied Bacon!
Macaroon Cupcake: Yellow cake is topped with vanilla frosting then crowned with crunchies and macaroon-like cookies. It’s a pretty presentation!
Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake: An attractive cupcake with colorful Mickey sprinkles and dark chocolate curls, plus thick pink buttercream frosting. Dig into the chocolate cake, then try to figure out if the frosting is actually raspberry flavored or just a raspberry color!
Peanut Butter Cupcake: The peanut buttery buttercream is thick and flavorful. Drizzled on top of the frosting is melted peanut butter sauce and a thick fudge sauce with small peanut butter chips studding the frosting. And it’s topped with a mini peanut butter cup. Once you dig into the dark chocolate cake, you’ll find even more peanut butter chips!
Caramel Corn Cupcake: A plain yellow vanilla cake with hearty vanilla buttercream frosting is drizzled with that gorgeous Werther’s caramel. The addition of the caramel corn on top adds a new texture!
Red Velvet Cupcake: Red sugar crystals are incorporated into the vanilla frosting, and there’s a border of red sprinkles around the edge. Inside the cupcake, there’s a delicious cheesecake center!
Cottontop Tamarin Cupcake: White and dark chocolate are blended to create the Cottontop Taramin face. The mold sits atop a generous layer of butter cream. Underneath that is rich chocolate cake!
Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake: A refreshing cupcake with light frosting and fresh strawberries inside the cake. The strawberries are drizzled with Grand Marnier!
Dulce de Leche Cupcake: A vanilla cupcake piled high with sweet, creamy caramel frosting. Inside the cupcake, there’s even more caramel-y goodness!
Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cupcake: Creamy frosting is luxuriously topped with macadamia nut slices atop this moist chocolate cupcake. Inside is a center of fudge-y ganache!
Lemon Ginger Cupcake: A perfectly golden brown cap of meringue tops the delicate ginger flavor in the cupcake. Super, tangy filling is the surprise inside!
Smores Cupcake: A chocolate cake base is filled with chocolate chunk frosting,then topped with a vanilla-buttercream-marshmallow combo of frosting, and dusted with graham cracker crumbs. A few toasted marshmallows on top finish off this comforting snack.
Spiced Apple Cupcake: A cinnamony-vanilla cake topped with what seemed to me like the same caramel frosting used on the Dulce de Leche Cupcake. The true flavor is inside where you’ll discover a mixture of apples, dried cranberries, and cinnamon.
Guava Cream Cheese Cupcake: The moist, sweet vanilla cake has a tangy, guava jam-like center. For a topping, savor the fluffy cream cheese frosting.
Chocolate Cappuccino Cupcake: The chocolate cake is moist with coffee flavor frosting. Those are toffee bits on the outside adding a nice buttery crunch.
4th of July Cupcake: Available at various locations around Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this cupcake appeared during the July 4th week in 2012. Check out the red, white, and blue decor! This cupcake is created with apple pie filling, caramel buttercream, and apple crisp topping! (Limited Availability)
Pineapple Coconut Cupcake: Discovered at Sunshine Seasons (Summer 2012), it’s a refreshing treat similar to pineapple upside down cake. If you like pineapple and coconut, this one’s for you!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake: Creamy, light frosting sits atop a chocolate cupcake. Inside there’s a delicious peanut butter filling! Will you start with the crowning mini peanut butter cup or save it for the finale?!
Pumpkin Mickey Cupcake: A totally adorable pumpkin cake topped with maple icing and garnished with sugared pecans.
Christmas Cupcake: Decorated with traditional red and green sprinkles, this beautiful treat features gingerbread cake and cream cheese icing and is topped with a Mickey Santa hat!
Captain Jack Sparrow Cupcake: This cupcake is wrapped in fudgey chocolate buttercream, and crowned with chocolate pearls! The cupcake is then tucked into a tiny treasure box with three more chocolates — a map, a key, and a coin!
Festival of the Masters Cupcakes: Limited Edition cupcakes found at the Festival of the Masters in Downtown Disney!
Decorate Your Own Cupcake Dessert: Fun for kids – this cupcake dessert is served at Animator’s Palate on the Disney cruise ships.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake: Served at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant, this is a sweet, delicious, and manageable cupcake. The cream cheese filling is more of a yogurt or custard consistency and not over-powering at all!
Chocolate Cupcake: Another Be Our Guest Restaurant cupcake, the Triple Chocolate Cupcake is made with chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse filling, and chocolate ganache. It was quite good, but very, very rich.
Lemon Meringue Cupcake: This Lemon Meringue Cupcake at Be Our Guest Restaurant offers a taste of vanilla sponge cake, lemon custard filling, and flamed merinque icing. This one has some yummy (though a bit too sweet) lemon curd in the middle!
American Adventure Gingerbread House Holiday Cupcakes: During the 2012 holiday season, the American Adventure Gingerbread House in Epcot served up four cupcakes – Apple Pie, Egg Nog, Red Velvet, and Gingerbread. These cupcakes were delicious!
Peppermint Swirl Cupcake: Offered during the Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in 2012, this Chocolate Cupcake with Vanilla Icing and Peppermint Candy was delightful.
Boardwalk Inn Peppermint Cupcake: The 2012 cupcake had a new twist, with its peppermint bark garnish and chocolate shavings.
Cool Mint Cupcake: The Contemporary Resort’s Contempo Cafe created the Cool Mint Cupcake with icy mint frosting meets rich, dark chocolate cake for a cool and rich flavor sensation.

Pineapple Rum Cream Cheese Cupcake: A white cake with pineapple flavored filling, topped with rum-flavored buttercream.
Monkey Cupcake: A cupcake with peanut butter buttercream frosting and a filling with banana pieces! Choose from yellow or chocolate cake. We love choices!
Gourmet Cake Cups: A Gourmet Cake Cup is like a cupcake in its ingredients (cake and frosting), but presented parfait-style. In addition to the frosting on top, there are multiple layers of frosting between the layers of cake, all served in a cup. And yes, they are very, VERY sweet!
