As Disney fans we are trained to look for those “hidden Mickey’s” in our everyday lives that bring us a smile. However, being a foodie I especially like when it happens in the realm of food. When you are in Walt Disney World those two eared gems are sometimes more obvious and plentiful.
You can find Mickey shaped food all over the parks and resorts. I searched and found some of my favorites for you to try on your next trip.
Mickey waffle: served many places around “the world” but you can find it at Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom.
Mickey ice cream bar: This iconic treat is vanilla ice cream with a hard chocolate shell. Which ear do you start with? They are sold at any treat cart.
Mickey pretzel: These cute soft pretzels are warm, salty deliciousness. Served at the Frontierland Churro Cart in the Magic Kingdom.
Mickey chocolate coconut patties: Served at the Confectionary, these mounds-like treats are a perfect snack riding the bus back to your resort.
Cucumbers: Yes you read it right. Order a salad at certain locations and your cucumber garnish will dawn that famous face.
Beignets: found at Port Orleans Resort. These fried Mickey shaped dough treats covered with powdered sugar will bring you right to the French Quarter (without the hangover).
Fruits and vegetables: if you ride Living with the Land in EPCOT, you will be able to see how Disney can grow Mickey shaped fruits and vegetables.
Pasta: one thing I love to take home to continue the magic is the bags of Disney pasta. there is nothing better than sitting down after work to a bowl of Mickey alfredo.
There are so many things that Disney does to let you know that it all started with a mouse. Let me know some of your favorites in the comment section.
Keith was born and raised in Northeast Ohio.He now lives with his wife a few miles from his childhood home. His first trip to the Magic Kingdom was at the age of two and while the only memories are in pictures, the magic laid dormant within him. Until he saw the animated movie Robin Hood, and his love began to grow. He has always had an interest in food and the togetherness it brings. He became a classically trained chef and all around foodie. His last trip to Disney World was in 2011 and he has been learning, researching, and keeping up on all things Disney since. He hopes to bring you all of the food news from the parks, tips on how to save money on food, and all the tastes and smells from the House of Mouse (especially when smell o vision is invented).
