REVIEW: Sugary Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sundae in Souvenir 50th Anniversary Sand Pail Swims Into Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is serving up a new 50th anniversary treat: the ice dream sand pail sundae. This souvenir 50th anniversary bucket full of ice cream and cupcakes can be found at Happy Landings Ice Cream next to Castaway Creek.

Ice Dream Sand Pail Sundae – $15.99

Vanilla and birthday cake-flavored soft-serve, EARidescent sprinkles, waffle cone pieces, rainbow cake, hot fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and a cherry layered into a Walt Disney World 50th anniversary sand pail bucket

The bottom layer of this treat is cupcakes, followed by ice cream, then whipped cream, a cherry, and a 50th anniversary chocolate medallion. Unlike other sand pails from Happy Landings, this one doesn’t come with a shovel.

This sundae is sure to give you a sugar high, especially if you try to eat it by yourself, so definitely bring some friends to share it with.

The birthday cake flavor overpowered the regular vanilla ice cream, but that’s okay. The ice cream is dyed blue and will stain your hands, so be careful.

The medallion and waffle cone pieces add some texture and crunch to the sundae.
