REVIEW: 50th Anniversary Mickey EARidescent Cupcake at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Next on our list of 50th anniversary treats is the EARidescent Mickey cupcake available at Gasparilla Island Grill in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

50th Anniversary Mickey EARidescent Cupcake – $5.99

Vanilla cupcake filled with lemon curd topped with blueberry mousse and enrobed in an EARidescent glaze


The cupcake comes in a domed package.


There were plenty of sprinkles on the plastic plate, but none on the cupcake.


It was stuck on with a dollop of buttercream.


Something about the texture of the mousse is reminiscent of panna cotta. The consistency is too airy and has an artificial blueberry taste.


The glaze doesn’t do much here and it tastes similar to that of the 50th anniversary raspberry almond cheesecake we had at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.


The cupcake itself is a standard vanilla base. It is moist and well-made.


The lemon curd is tart and tangy but we wish there was more of it.


The lemon curd was the only thing we really liked about this. Otherwise, it’s a pass for us.
