Thinking about a Disney Cruise? Wondering if you can get Mickey shaped Desserts? READ this review…
Hi guys, Its hot out and I am remembering the yummy ice cream sundae I enjoyed on my recent Disney Cruise. I know many people LOVE the fun desserts they have in the parks and wonder if the cruises do too. Well I am here to report, they do!! 2 of the 4 ships actually have Disney themed sweet shops on board to fill that Mickey shaped void. READ this Dessert Review.
My most recent cruise adventure was on the Disney Dream. The Dream is a fabulous ship with a hidden sweet shop, Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats. Yep, as in Wreck it Ralph. This cute little gem is all decked out with King Candy, Vanellope’s Go Cart and lots and lots of sugar filled goodness. Ice Cream, Ice cream concoctions, Mickey shaped cupcakes, cookies, oh my and other sweet treats. A life sized candy Go Cart is in the shop for your perfect Instagram pics. And I must add, I found the sweetest Cast Member working behind the counter.
I cruised on the Fantasy just a few months back and found a very similar Sweet Shop on board – Sweet On You. This very cute confectionery is decorated with Minnie and Mickey. A sculpture (if you will) of Minnie and Mickey sharing an ice cream treat while seated in old fashioned patio furniture is featured in the shop. The treats sold are very similar, if not the same as the Disney Dream. Several pre-packaged options were also in the shops, like they do in the parks. The dark chocolate covered pretzels are a fave. Now if only they can sell the Soft Mickey Pretzels, yum!!
The shops described above are extra, meaning the cost is not included in the cruise fare. But this didn’t stop me, nor did it stop all the other cruise guests. Every time I walked past these shops, business was hopping. Guests just can’t get enough of their favorite sweet Mickey shaped goodness. Of course for those that are watching your pennies you can always get the unlimited Dairy FULL soft serve as well as order Mickey Premium Ice Cream bar from Room Service.
If you are allergic to dairy and/or are vegan…both of the shops had options for us. I was able to score yummy Chocolate Ice Cream on BOTH ships and the Dream had a few extra flavors I didn’t remember the Fantasy having. So I was able to score a frozen vegan treat like all the other guests. And, although not guaranteed, I was able to get SAFE vegan ice cream with a clean spoon and scoops from a safe container. The Cast Member did give me the usual CC warnings, so be cautious and ask questions.
The other ships:
The Disney Magic and Wonder do NOT currently have these yummy additions to the ships but don’t you worry. The buffets are FILLED with sweet treats and so are the dinner menus. They also sell Dole Whips on board now, so that’s a HUGE plus. If you have food allergies, I help my clients with this so you too can have yummy treats. I have enjoyed many cookies, brownies and most recently a strawberry shortcake with my allergies.
I hope this helped you either get excited about your up-coming cruise or perhaps makes you want to book one, which I can help with. Mahalo for READING and FOLLOWING along – Nina
