Two new items, the Mickey Sundae and the Minnie Sundae, arrived at Clarabelle’s in Toon Town at the Disneyland Resort. The sweet pair are as photogenic as their namesakes and pictures of the desserts have popped up all over Instagram during the past week. But are they worth all that hype? Let’s dig in!
When you walk up to the register at Clarabelle’s in Toon Town (not to be confused with Clarabelle’s Hand Scooped Ice Cream, located on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure), you’ll spy a small standing sign with images of both sundaes along with a vague description of the dishes.
Thankfully, if you look at Disneyland’s online menu, you can find more information.
Mickey Sundae – $7.99
The Mickey Sundae is described online as vanilla and chocolate swirl frozen yogurt with chocolate cream cookies (used as mouse ears), chocolate candies, and a bowtie (which is actually just Minnie’s bow flipped backwards). It is probably a good thing this description was not visible at the quick service location because after a few bites in, I realized there was no chocolate in mine. It was strictly vanilla all the way through. In truth, that was personally fine for me. I prefer vanilla anyways, but it was odd nonetheless. And I would not recommend eating the bowtie. It is edible, but mostly flavorless and waxy.
Minnie Sundae – $7.99
The Minnie Sundae suffered the same chocolate flavor shortage that the Mickey one had. It is listed as vanilla and chocolate swirl frozen yogurt with chocolate cream cookies (again, mouse ears), chocolate candies, and decorated with a bow. There were literally only six M & M’s used as topping. I counted. Not cool, Disney. Not cool.
In short, these Sundaes are just a pair of pretty faces with nothing to make them worth the trek out to Toon Town, not to mention the $7.99 you will have to pay to order one.
