Disney World Resort has hundreds of restaurants and some delicious food items. Serving everything from sushi to veggie burgers, there is plenty of variety to satisfy the hungry stomachs of the whole family.
When you have a sweet tooth in Disney, though, there are some items that are just more outrageous than others. Here are the top six outrageous desserts in Disney World.
6. Chocolate Extinction
The Chocolate Extinction dessert at T-REX Café in Disney Springs is certainly one of a kind. It takes a hint from the pre-historic themed restaurant, and it too is seriously larger than life… and your stomach. Before you even take a bite of this delectable delight, you’ll get a show since the plate is complete with a cup of dry ice to create a smoking effect. Once this behemoth is in front of you, you’ll realize that the chocolate fudge cake, ice cream, whipped topping, fudge and caramel drizzles, and Butterfinger crumbs are enough to feed an army of at least four people.
The doh-bar at Cookes of Dublin also in Disney Springs may cause your heart to skip a beat- or is that a palpitation?
Imagine: Start with a Snickers bar, dip it in donut batter, deep fry it, and sprinkle it with powdered sugar. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!
4. King Cupcake (RIP)
It’s gone, but I can’t help but still put it on the list. It was part of the cupcakes trend.
Pop Century pushed the boundaries with the King Cupcake. Dedicated to the King, Elvis Presley, himself, this sweet and savory treat incorporated all of Elvis’s favorites into one (not so small) package. The chocolate cupcake is filled with a banana custard and topped with peanut butter icing. It is then sprinkled with candied bacon and chocolate drizzle. How’s that for a hunk o’ burnin’ love? Farewell King Cupcake, we will miss you.
3. Tie-Die Cheesecake
We’ll stay at Everything Pop for our #4 outrageous dessert: the tie-dye cheesecake. Although it tastes like a normal cheesecake, its look may throw you off a bit. The cheesecake is dyed several different colors! Don’t be alarmed, though, the cheesecake and its red-velvet cake bottom are quite delicious!
2. Gourmet Apples
The gourmet apples in Disney World are a thing of beauty. These works of art are elaborately themed, and new themes arrive every month. The apples can be as plain as just caramel or chocolate, they can be dipped in caramel, chocolate, and sugar, or they can be fancy with any variety of candy including M&Ms, graham crackers, Butterfingers, etc. on top!
Most of them have marshmallows for Mickey ears, and they’re all delicious! My favorite place to grab this sweet treat is Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionary as I walk out of the park. I like to savor every bite once I get back to the hotel room!
The apples are also available at Magic Kingdom’s Big Top Treats, Hollywood Studio’s Sweet Spells, Boardwalk Inn’s Seashore Sweets, and Disney Springs’ Goofy’s Candy Co. and Candy Cauldron. Here’s a tip that will save you a lot of frustration: ask the Cast Member to cut it for you! They’ll be happy to oblige.
1. Kitchen Sink
Topping our list is Beaches and Cream’s Kitchen Sink. Beaches and Cream is an old-time soda shop that will transport you back to the 1950s.
The Kitchen Sink is served in a replica kitchen sink and includes eight scoops of ice cream, every topping in the house, and a full can of whipped cream. Toppings include hot fudge, hot butterscotch, a banana, cinnamon spice cake, angel food cake, marshmallow crème, a candy bar, a brownie, four chocolate chip cookies, almonds, jellied orange slices…
The list of ingredients goes on and on, but suffice it to say that all of the bases will be covered. Be sure to bring all of your friends because this is definitely not something you want to tackle on your own.
