Summer is almost here and a park-wide parade of treats is waiting for you at Disney. Between Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind at Pixar Pier and everything else opening at Disney Parks in 2019, you’re sure to work up a major hunger.
Just like summer, some of these fabulous new Disney foods and drinks are fleeting so if you want a bite, you’ll want to head to the parks fast!
New in 2019
Walt Disney World
Coming in strawberry, vanilla and chocolate flavor options, the new Mickey Donut from the Lunching Pad at the Magic Kingdom is a sight to behold! With plenty of sprinkles to go around, this is the perfect early morning treat.
Wish Granted Donut
Starting May 1, you'll find the Wish Granted doughnut in Adventureland within Magic Kingdom, at Sunshine Tree. The gold glitter-topped breakfast treat is also adorned with blue cotton candy to mimic the smoke that comes out of the genie lamp. Don't miss this limited edition treat which goes back into the bottle on Jun. 30.
Dole Whip Lime Margarita
Yes, it is possible to love a Dole Whip even more than you already do! All you have to do is head to the Polynesian Village Resort and go straight to the Barefoot Pool Bar to grab this frosty Dole Whip Lime Margarita that is the very essence of summer. Choose from a salt or Tajín rim and enjoy the Corazon Blanco tequila that's paired with lime-flavored Dole Whip. Bottoms up!
Heart of Te Fiti Cone
While you're at the Polynesian Resort, head to Pineapple Lanai and pick up a Heart of Te Fiti Cone for the kids! The $5 green treat is made with a Lime Dole Whip and a fun, festive cone.
Hei Hei Cone
You can't ever really have enough Dole Whip, and that's why the Hei Hei Character Cone is a no brainer! The treat combines a combo of traditional pineapple Dole Whip and raspberry Dole Whip, on top of a blue wafer cone. Hei Hei's look is completed with sugar eyes and a sour candy "comb."
Donald Duck Lemon Blueberry Bundt
Head to the Jolly Holiday Bakery off Main Street, U.S.A. to pick up Donald Duck's first dessert. The light and refreshing bundt cake is filled with lemon curd and blueberry jam that will have you licking your fingers before you know it.
Black Tap Shakes
Take a break from the parks and head to the Downtown Disney District because New York's famous milkshake and burger spot, Black Tap has arrived! The eatery brings a little bit of New York with it, from decor to food and offers DIsney exclusives, like the new Strawberry Shortcake CrazyShake that is made with a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar, strawberry drizzle and a pink and white twisty pop.
The boozy pops are the perfect end to a long park day. Find these refreshingly grown-up treats at the Via Napoli beverage and snack cart, located in Epcot's Italy pavilion. Choose from Limoncello, Sparkling Strawberry or Berry Sangria.
New in 2018
This donut is more of a work of art than a breakfast food, in fact you might feel bad biting into this beauty. But you shouldn’t because it’s totally delicious, just make sure you snap a pic first because there won’t be a single ballon left. You’ll find this sweet treat at the Disneyland Donut cart to the left of the castle.
Black Light Cherry Lemonade
It wouldn’t be a true glow party without glow-in-the-dark drinks. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is throwing an epic nighttime bash hosted by Partysaurus Rex called H2OGlow and these glowing frozen cocktails, that come in two flavors Black Light Cherry Lemonade and Fred’s Purple Siren, are the perfect way to share a toast.
Pineapple Cotton Candy
It’s a good thing these bright yellow concoctions are as light as air because a single serving of Pineapple Cotton Candy sold at Downtown Disney in Anaheim is bigger than your head.
This Infinity Fizz buzzes to life thanks to a little dry ice mingling among the mocktail made with Powerade Mountain Berry Blast, cherry pearls and apple juice. You can raise a fizzy glass at the Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier in California Adventure.
Jack Jack Cookie Num Nums
If you’ve seen Incredibles 2, you’ll know Jack Jack goes ga-ga for a cookie and this warm, deep dish chocolate chip cookie is about as delicious as a cookie can get. If you work up and appetite after riding the new Incredicoaster in California Adventure make sure you stop at the cookie stand just outside the exit.
Pixar Pier Parfait
The Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats at Pixar Pier in California Adventure is the perfect spot to cool down on a hot summer day. Nothing spells refreshing quite like this frosty cold parfait that layers lemon soft serve with blue raspberry slush.
If you like a little spice to your sweets, then you’ll definitely want to stop by Señor Buzz’s at the new Pixar Pier where you can kick into hyperdrive with the spicy Caliente Churro that tastes a little bit like Red Hots in churro form.
