The 9 Best Sweet Treats at Disneyland To Make You Drool

For those of us with a massive sweet tooth, is there really any place better to be than Disneyland? Ice cream shops on every corner, giant doughnuts and churros at every stand, and super sweet slushes and shakes available all year round. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by choices, so I’ve made down a list of the best sweet treats currently available at Disneyland Park and California Adventure.

1. Mickey Beignets

Available: Mint Julep Bar or Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square in Disneyland Park

No sweets list would ever be complete without these classics. Be sure to get the regular beignet with powdered sugar. The classic is much better than the strawberry beignets in my opinion. Whether it’s your first time going to Disneyland or your 101st, no trip is complete without a beignet!

2. Cocoa Churro

Disneyland churros might be a classic, but this new Pixar Fest treat has got the classic beat. This spicy churro is covered in powdered cocoa and cinnamon and paired perfectly with a Mexican chocolate dip. Here’s hoping this treat sticks around long after Pixar Fest ends.

3. Marshmallow Doughnut

Here’s another Pixar Fest fave that will hopefully last longer than Pixar Fest does. For those of you with a massive sweet tooth who like things super sweet (like me), this doughnut is all you can ask for and more. It’s more of a cronut with its flaky texture and the marshmallow filling is ooey-gooey perfection.

4. Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num

If there is such a thing as an absolutely perfect chocolate chip cookie, this is it. It’s almost cakey in texture, with chocolate melting out of it, and it’s bigger than your hand. While waiting in line for Incredicoaster, dig into this melty masterpiece. It’ll make the time go much faster.

5. Red Velvet Whoopie Pie

This whoopie pie is not to be mistaken with the red velvet whoopie pie at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. This is far and away the superior version. Not overly sweet, this pastry combines a variety of flavors that complement each other. From the cream cheese filling to the strawberry chocolate shavings, every flavor makes you want to sing!

6. Matterhorn Macaroon

When Disney does anything, they tend to have a go big or go home mentality and this macaroon is no different. This gigantic take on a macaroon is topped with a white chocolate “mountaintop” and sugar crystal “snowflakes”.

7. Funnel Cake

Stage Door Cafe is always switching out their funnel cakes and I have never once been disappointed in what they put out. You can always go with the original, with powdered sugar or strawberry, but keep an eye out for their specials. The Mocha Chip Funnel Cake was a personal favorite, but Jessie’s Rodeo Funnel Cake is a great choice, especially if your sweet tooth prefers fruit to chocolate.

8. Dole Whip Float

The Dole Whip Float is a thousand times better than a plain Dole Whip. It’s far more refreshing, much more portable, and is just a sweeter treat. Be sure to order it through mobile order, or you can expect a very long wait to get your Dole Whip fix.

9. Gourmet Donuts

The gourmet donuts in Disneyland Park deserve an honorable mention because, when they’re good, they’re amazing. But, they’re not always great. The flavors rotate, so keep an eye out for some stand-outs like Chocolate Covered Potato Chip or Dole Whip.
