Top 5 Disney World Holiday Treats

One of the best parts of visiting Disney World during the Holidays is getting to partake in all the Holiday foods the parks serve. David and I love to eat (shocker, I know), and we also love Christmas, so its the perfect mix for us. We also view the Holidays as an excuse to put off healthy eating until January (don’t judge us too harshly!). We have taken on a sense of obligation to our readers to sample as many Holiday treats at the Disney Parks as possible, to help you know which are the ones you can’t miss. It was selfless of us, I know.

1. The Gingerbread Cupcake at The Starring Rolls Bakery

Disclaimer – we think that Hollywood Studios in general is a wasteland of quick service food. One of the only places we like is The Starring Rolls Bakery, for sandwiches, pastries, and cupcakes. It’s always a must-hit for us, as we love the food, and the expansive patio. The Gingerbread Cupcake, is a regular Holiday feature for them, and is always one of our favorite Christmas cupcakes. This cupcake has a very pronounced gingerbread flavor, cream cheese frosting, and an adorable santa hat with Mickey ears.


2.Eggnog at The American Pavilion

The American Pavilion in Epcot has it’s own stand filled with traditional treats of the season – everything from Christmas cookies, to Holiday flavored funnel cakes. We really like the eggnog they serve here, topped with whip cream and sprinkles.


3. Buche de Noel at The France Pavilion

This traditional chocolate Christmas log is, in our opinion, the creme de la creme of all Christmas treats at Disney World. We love it so much that we had three of them during our trip. It’s layers of chocolate sponge cake, mouse, and ganache, with a light orange flavor. Stop by the French bakery, and grab one for yourself.


4. Peppermint Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwich at The France Pavilion

We’re back in France, this time at L’Artisan des Glaces. We love this charming ice cream store, that took over the small space where the bakery used to be. All the ice cream and sorbet is made in house, and is all delicious. The Christmas sandwich is a peppermint ice cream sandwich, using two macaroons as the sandwich ‘bread’.


5. Gingerbread at the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House

Fact – buying something out of a life size gingerbread house makes it taste better. We love gingerbread, and we love getting to see all the decor at the Grand Floridian, so this is a win-win for us.


We hope you enjoy eating Holiday treats, as much as we enjoyed trying them all so that we can write about them. Let us know what your favorite treats are, and what we missed, so we can include it in our list!
