I Scream for Disney Ice Cream

There are LOTS of places at Walt Disney World to get a frozen treat.  Everything from vanilla ice cream to frozen lemonade to a kitchen sink sundae with every topping imaginable exists throughout the theme parks and resorts.  In no particular order…here are my can’t misses: 

Dole Whip Float from Aloha Isle
Dole Whip - What used to be an Adventureland exclusive can now also be found at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.  I’m a fan of Dole Whip’s in their purest form—pineapple, in a dish.  You can also get pineapple swirled with vanilla, a float with juice, or (not at Magic Kingdom) the adult version with rum.  I like to get a dish, smell the nacho plant (I’m not the only one who smells it, right?) as I walk over the Adventureland bridge, and enjoy my Dole Whip on the curb of Main Street USA while waiting for the parade.

Ice Cream selections at L'Artisan des Glaces
L’Artisan des Glaces - I’ll admit, I wasn’t sold on the bakery leaving its old location in France for the expanded Boulangerie Patisserie les Halles.  I’m not big on change and who didn’t love being squished in that double sided French bakery surrounded by the amazing smells?  I can now say with 100% certainty  that the change was worth it.  L’Artisan des Glaces has the creamiest, most amazing ice cream.  Purists can get a scoop or two (feel free to mix those flavors if you get more than one scoop) or you can enjoy an ice cream martini, topped with your choice of Grand Marnier, whipped cream vodka or rum.

Croque Glace being made at L'Artisan des Glaces
You can also try a macaron sandwich or one of the most interesting, weird, YUMMY things I’ve ever had, the Croque Glace, which is a warm ice cream sandwich.  Yeah, I know.  I heard it.  Choose your ice cream flavor, choose chocolate or raspberry sauce, and watch them seal your sandwich in machine that looks like what I imagine would happen if a waffle maker and panini press had a love child.  I went with pistachio and chocolate and the only thing I regret to this day is not getting 10 more sandwiches and trying more combinations.  It was warm, it was cold, it was chewy…it was awesome.

No Way Jose form Beaches and Cream
PB&J Shake from 50’s Prime Time Café - Get it when you dine in or visit Dad at the bar in the Tune In Lounge and get it to go, but whatever you choose, just get it.

No Way Jose from Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Beach Club Resort - Hot fudge, melted peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla ice cream…do I need to keep going?  Beaches and Cream is such a fun stop regardless of what you get. 

Those are just some of my favorites!  What is your favorite ice cream treat at Walt Disney World?  Tell us in the comments!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
