Sweets & Drinks

Ghirardelli Soda Foundation and Chocolate Shop

Ghirardelli Sundae
Ghirardelli Sundae

Have you even visited Disney Springs if you haven’t dropped by the Ghirardelli shop? You can’t go wrong ordering at this ice cream shop but our favorites are Crissy Field Cookie Bits Sundae and the Ocean Beach Sea Salt Caramel Sundae.

Choza de Margarita

Margarita lovers cannot miss a visit to this Epcot drink stand. Located right outside the Mexican temple, this stand offers exciting takes on a classic favorite.  The smoky pineapple is my favorite drink but there are several unique and classic margaritas on the rocks and frozen for guests to choose from.

The Mara

Head over to Animal Kingdom Lodge to experience a favorite Walt Disney World treat, zebra domes. These fluffy white chocolate mousse desserts are served only at Boma, a table service buffet at Animal Kingdom Lodge and The Mara counter service eatery. Snag a yummy bottle of African wine to take back to your resort to enjoy later!

Sleepy Hollow

If waffles filled with Nutella and sweet fruit sounds delicious, do not miss a stop at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square. Perfect for a snack or a sweet lunch, these waffles are around eight dollars each. Footlong hand dipped corn dogs are another yummy lunch option to try at Sleepy Hollow.
