Delicious treats on the Disney Cruise Line include cold brew coffee, treats at Vanellope’s, ice cream at Eye Scream, and Mickey bars.
Everyone knows that you can just eat and eat on a cruise, but since you definitely can’t have everything, it’s important to know what the best treats are. There are so many delicious treats on the Disney Cruise Line – here are some of our favorites. Note that these may not be available on all of the ships.

Delicious Treats on the Disney Cruise Line
Mickey bars are popular in the parks, and you can also get them on the Disney Cruise Line. We always make sure to have at least one or two every trip! They are included in the cost of the Disney Cruise, so you can have as many as you’d like – but be sure to save room for some of the other great treats!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
I absolutely love the chocolate chip cookies onboard the Disney Cruise Line. You can get them through room service, or at the buffet at Cabanas. They are great with milk for a nighttime snack too!
Dole Whips are a relatively new addition to the treats on the Disney Cruise Line, although they’ve always been favorites at the theme parks. They are available as is (nonalcoholic), or with Myers Dark Rum, Shipwreck Spiced, or Vanilla Rum. On the Disney Dream, you can find them at Frozone Treats, adjacent to Eye Scream.
Both the non-alcoholic and the alcoholic versions do cost extra, so keep that in mind. I usually try to have one on my cruise.
Soft Serve at Eye Scream
Free ice cream all day? My kids can’t walk by Eye Scream on the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy without grabbing a cone of soft-serve ice cream. It’s a fun little treat that reminds you how great cruising really can be.
You’ll also find free ice cream at the various BBQ buffets at Castaway Cay, and you can always get it for dessert at each meal.
Gelato at Vanellope’s (extra fee, currently only available at the Disney Dream)
One of the updates on the Disney Dream was to add Vanellope’s Sweet Shop. Items in the shop are offered for an extra fee, but the gelato is definitely a yummy treat. Ice cream and other desserts are also available.
For a special treat, check out the Vanellope Von Schweetz’s Race Kart Sundae with three scoops of ice cream and five toppings. You can even have it delivered to your dining room for your after-dinner dessert.
Chocolate Soufflé at Palo
I love visiting Palo with my husband (it’s adults only, and an extra fee applies, (unless you are a platinum Castaway Club member). The chocolate soufflé is my favorite dessert to have on the ship. It comes with a delicious vanilla sauce and is the perfect end to a fantastic dinner.
Cookies N Cream Sundae
Animator’s Palate on the Disney Dream, the Disney Magic, the Disney Wonder, and the Disney Fantasy offers their own version of the cookies and cream sundae, and it’s so good. My kids love this one too. I’ll even request it at some of my other dinners because it’s so good.
Cold Brew Coffee in the Cove Cafe (extra fee)
This isn’t a dessert, but it’s definitely still a treat for coffee lovers. When I was last on the Disney Dream, they had the Yama cold brew system, which makes great coffee that isn’t at all bitter.
There’s an extra fee for coffee in the Cove, but it’s definitely worth it. All four ships have a Cove Cafe in the adult-only section of the ship.
Beignets at Tiana’s
When dining at Tiana’s on the Disney Wonder, you’ll get the option to order yummy beignets for dessert. They were so good that I ended up asking for them at every meal – even when we weren’t at Tiana’s!
Fry Pan Sweet Bread at Rapunzel’s on the Disney Magic
This fun restaurant on the Disney Magic offers one of my favorite desserts. The Fry Pan Sweet Bread comes in a frying pan and tastes similar to a beignet. You’ll definitely want to try it.
When booking a Disney Cruise, I recommend booking with Get Away Today. Plus, when you mention Family Travel Magazine, you get an extra $25 on board credit! Give their agents a call at 877-510-2929.
If you are cruising out of Port Canaveral and flying into MCO, we recommend staying at the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport. Check prices and reviews here.
