REVIEW: New Mermaid Donut is Now Part of Your World at the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

It’s been a few since since the reveal of this nautical treat from ABC News. I’ve been wondering “when’s it my turn” to try this donut and today it’s finally a reality. Disneyland has been keeping their donut game fresh with recent Dole Whip donuts and a multitude of awesomeness from the Disneyland Hotel, but Walt Disney World has been quiet on this trend. We hope this is the first step towards a larger donut presence in the parks.

Kept nice and away from the Florida heat and weather, but still visible.


Mermaid Donut – $4.99

Located at Prince Eric’s Village Market stand, right outside the entrance to Under The Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, this donut makes a fun splash. Take note that many other websites are saying it’s located at Ariel’s Grotto, which isn’t accurate. That’s a meet and greet location, not a snack spot. Anyway, it’s actually a pretty good donut!

That’s a fresh, soft, fluffy donut below a layer of icing dotted with purple sprinkles and a few white chocolate shells. The mermaid tail is also white chocolate, making this sweet, perhaps a little too sweet at times. Maybe break the white chocolate up a little and sprinkle it over the donut before consumption (and after pictures, of course).

It’s a pretty donut that tastes rather good and is pretty unique in the realm of Magic Kingdom snacks. Bottom line: it’s worth a try.
