In addition to yummy cookies and cakes, Gideon’s has cold brew coffee, and more. Gideon’s Bakehouse has also served up cake dips in the past (which taste great, but look…interesting) and today cake dips are BACK with a special flavor!
Walt Disney World is known for its magical sweet treats, from Dole Whip to cupcakes to Mickey Premium Bars.
Fortunately, you don’t have to try too hard to find most of those iconic eats! Even location-specific sweets like the caramel corn from Karamell-Küche at EPCOT or that fluffy cinnamon roll from Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom just require a little wait in line or a few clicks on Mobile Order.

Disney has long celebrated special occasions, like the Happiest Celebration on Earth or the Celebrate Today! theme, with special desserts. But once these occasions have passed, we lose the desserts! So when Nate Parrish of the WEDway Radio podcast gave me the opportunity to reminisce about the chocolate Spaceship Earth desserts from Disney World’s millennium celebration, I jumped at the chance. Here’s his story:
While my wife and I were honeymooning in Walt Disney World in August of 2000 we spent an evening at one of our favorite restaurants, L’ Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante. Our order was for a special “Millenium Celebration” inclusive dinner consisting of an appetizer, entrees, dessert, and a bottle of wine. I think it ran around $99 for both of us (a steal nowadays).
Probably the most interesting item that I have ever had was the dessert at this meal, a chocolate Spaceship Earth. The presentation was amazing. The sphere was nearly complete, and inside of the hollow chocolate shell was tiramisu. Chocolate was sprinkled on the plate as well to spell out “2000” in honor of the Millennium Celebration. I don’t think I had ever taken a picture of a food item before, besides the blue mayo at Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe, but this definitely warranted a snapshot.
Chocolate Spaceship Earth Specs
The dessert consisted of a dark chocolate, molded Spaceship Earth geodesic sphere, complete with chocolate “legs.” There were several different possible creamy fillings for the sphere, ranging from rice pudding in Norway to maple-flavored cream in Canada. I’ve even read about there being Butterfinger Mousse in some of the Spaceship Earth desserts — and we all know how delicious that sounds. It’s like a huge, cream-filled truffle on your plate. Heaven!
I’ve seen mention of the dessert in only a few spots online — mostly trip reports. One fantastic report, by Scott Nicholson and his partner Ken, featured the Norway version of the dessert.
Many thanks to Scott for allowing me to use this photo! For those of you who have memories of this celebratory dessert, I welcome your photos and trip reports.
