Visiting Walt Disney World Resort? You certainly have plenty of palatable pies to pick from! Both conventional classics and uniquely flavored novelties make up the grand ensemble, with various specialties forever emerging at locations all throughout the Parks, Resorts, and within Disney Springs. Here are 10 tasty examples that you simply must try.
10. Entrée Pies
Not all pies are exclusive to a dessert-like status. In fact, there are several classic entrées that are renowned for being well-loved mealtime courses. The shepherd’s pie, beloved by many, is perhaps one of the best examples. And the good news is, you can find various renditions of such being served up at various locations throughout Disney World.
Head to EPCOT’s Rose & Crown Dining Room to enjoy their version of Shepherd’s Pie, which comes as a compilation of ground beef, seasonal vegetables, English peas, mashed potatoes, and McCall’s own Irish Cheddar.
Raglan Road, over in Disney Springs, offers up their own house specialty Shepherd’s to Die for Pie. Their presentation comes as braised and pulled beef and lamb mixed together with root vegetables in a red wine jus with Irish peat-smoked mashed potato.
Chicken potpie fans will also love their Pie in the Sky entrée, served as a puff pastry-filled blend of chicken, wild mushrooms, and leeks in a white wine cream sauce.

6. Peanut Butter Pie
Contempo Café, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, is known for offering many mouthwatering desserts. And while their Pumpkin Pie Tart with cinnamon and whipped cream is a hit with many (especially during the autumn months) there’s just something undeniably pleasing about their specialty Peanut Butter Pie.
Dished up as a vanilla tart shell filled with custard and peanut butter filling, a drizzling of chocolate ganache and adorning garnishment of crisp chocolate pearls elevates its overall edible appeal.
In celebration of Disney World’s 50th anniversary, Contempo Café is also offering a limited-time Peanut Butter-Banana Pie served up with a peanut butter mousse filling, banana sauce, and chocolate glaze with other chocolate toppings.

4. Chocolate S’mores Pie
One of the best things about all-you-can-eat buffets is the fact that you get to pick and choose your own meal items. This of course includes the dessert part that follows any meal.

Menus are always changing at Disney World, so it’s always best to check frequently for any updates on the specialties you love so well. Also, in going back to our first point about entrée pies, keep in mind that there are many other atypical pies to please your palate in addition to all these, as well.
Pizzas are, after all, considered pies too, as are some tarts and pastries, depending on how they are prepared. But the most important thing to remember is that even though eating pie on Pi Day is a great way to celebrate the occasion, you really don’t ever need an excuse to enjoy a delicious Disney pie.
