Any trip to Disney is special, but during the holidays, you’ll find an extra dose of indulgence waiting for you around every corner. Here, we offer our tips for the treats that you can’t miss during your holiday visit to the parks of Walt Disney World.

Magic Kingdom

Holidays are an extra special time at Magic Kingdom, where guests can enjoy Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, complete with snow on Main Street USA and visits with Santa.

Fans of gluten-friendly desserts will love the Enchanted Christmas Belle Dessert at Gaston's Tavern. This flourless chocolate cake is filled with white chocolate peppermint mousse and covered in a yellow glaze with a chocolate garnish that features Belle dressed in her holiday best. 

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

During the season's Flurry of Fun, enjoy vintage-inspired decorations and larger-than-life projection shows as night falls. Don't miss the new Sunset Seasons Greetings celebration!

For all of the good little helpers, Disney has created a Gingerbread Cupcake just for you. Each fresh baked cupcake is topped with a magical swirl of frosting, red and green sprinkles, and a Prep and Landing topper. Find this gem at ABC Commissary, Catalina Eddie’s  and The Trolley Car Café.

But if chocolate is your treat of choice (and you’re a grown up), stop by Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner or Fairfax Fare to try the special array of hot chocolates. Choose from a Hot Chocolate Martini, Baileys Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, or a Black Cherry Bourbon Hot Chocolate. Feeling adventurous? Get the Hot Chocolate Flight and try all three!

Epcot

Finally, we make our way to Epcot for a festive and delicious look at how the holidays are celebrated around the world at the International Festival of Holidays.

Be sure to visit The Festive Center, located at the Odyssey Center. New for 2018, this stop features lots of different sweet treats, but one of our favorites is the Sachertorte. The cake combines velvety chocolate with apricot jam for a traditional taste of Austria.

And while it’s hard to choose from all of the delicious offerings at the Festival’s Holiday Kitchens, a stop by The Cookie Nook for Warm Apple Fritters is practically a requirement. The homespun treat is served with creamy cinnamon ice cream and is topped with a warm caramel sauce.
